Please note that The Rhythmics played its final performance on Saturday 11th December, and the remainder of the run has been cancelled. This is due to positive cases of Covid-19 within the company, and the effect of subsequent isolation requirements on the viability of the show. Ticket-holders have all been contacted regarding their options but if this is you and you have not, please drop us a line.
Hapless single-dad Grey is in a rut. Teenage daughter Silva packs him off to revive his rockstar dreams, successfully auditioning for ‘Nick & the Rhythmics’ only to realise… he’s actually signed up for an All-male Rhythmic Gymnastics troupe. Against the odds these burly blokes make it as far as the World Championships – twirling their ‘ribbons of fire’ – and along the way Grey finally learns to commit to life.
Calendar Girls meets The Full Monty in this joyous new British musical.
Like the music video “Got Your Back“, created to accompany the release of the album, the full production will also feature choreography incorporating rhythmic gymnastics and sign language from Deaf Men Dancing’s Mark Smith, as well as captions throughout all performances.
There will be 6 BSL interpreted performances on December 6th, 7th, 17th, and 18th, and January 7th and 8th.
Age guidance: 11+ due to adult themes and occasional swearing, however The Rhythmics is suitable for younger children and 11+ is a general age guidance – parental discretion is advised.

A relaxed performance is a show that’s been adapted to suit people who might require a more relaxed environment when going to the theatre. Usually, these are adults or children with learning difficulties, autism or sensory communication disorders.
People with conditions like these can find standard theatre performances overwhelming or unpleasant. Common triggers are darkness, loud music, sudden noises and a generally unfamiliar environment in which you’re expected to sit still and quiet for a long time.
Typically our relaxed performances involve some technical changes – this can include quieter music, reducing loud or surprising sound effects and avoiding strobe lighting. The house lights will be left on and audience members are able to enter and leave the auditorium freely.
