King of Pop -The Legend Continues... Starring 'NAVI'

navi-king-of-popSaturday 19 July 2014

Venue: Middleton Arena

There are several tribute shows to Michael Jackson currently performing around the world, but only ONE will have you believing for just a moment... The Legend Continues.

This superb production stars 'Navi' who is officially recognised as the world's No.1 MJ impersonator. He is also the only tribute ever to be chosen by Michael Jackson himself. Michael selected Navi to perform at two of his birthday parties and actually gave him a standing ovation. Michael also invited Navi to spend a day at his home 'Neverland'. The pair remained close and Navi was often hired to act as Michael's decoy/body double due to his uncanny resemblance to the star.

Navi has since continued to work at the highest level and has performed in a whopping 57 different countries. Along with his incredible live band and dancers, he is currently taking UK theatres by storm and once again raising the bar in the MJ tribute world with his thrilling new show.

Don't miss King Of Pop – The Legend Continues as Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a night out the whole family will enjoy.

The Mikado and Patience

Sunday 22 June 2014

Presented by Oldham Choral Society

Oldham Choral Society returns to Middleton Arena with another successful double bill of highlights from two of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operas, presented and narrated by Donald Maxwell with a cast of G&S specialist soloists.

The Victorian era theatrical partnership of Gilbert and Sullivan has been a major influence on the development of musical theatre today. Their operas enjoy enduring international success and are performed frequently throughout the world.

Among their most successful, The Mikado remains a favourite and features 'Three Little Maids' and 'A Wand'ring Minstral'. In August 2009, Patience, with its sharp wit and wonderful tunes, was chosen for a semi-staged performance at the Proms where Donald Maxwell took the part of Colonel Calverley. A role he repeats in this performance.

Satirical lampooning of British institutions and personalities of the day are thinly disguised in the topsy-turvey worlds they created. The stories are charming, the characters memorable and the music is delightful.

Times: Doors 7pm, Starts 7.30pm

Tickets: Adults £12, School children £1

buy-tickets online or in person at the Arena Box Office or ring 0844 855 4020. (A transaction fee of £1.50 applies to online bookings plus a postage charge of £1.50 if required.)
