Are you ready to dance, Manchester?

JERRY SPRINGER – THE OPERA caused a storm when it came to the UK stage in 2005. In this new revival it promises to be a raucous and fresh production for 2019!

Not for the faint-hearted or easily offended, expect chaos and debauchery in this smash hit musical based on the infamous talk show – The Jerry Springer Show.

From the all-singing KKK, a stripper who just wants to dance and the ultimate battle of good vs. evil between god and the devil, nothing is of limits in this must-see production.

In a time where political lunacy exists with Trump and Brexit, we really do need to examine just what went wrong but more importantly, can we fix it?

Brought to you in their first production by James Baker, Tom Chester and Bill Elms for Northern Ricochet.

Written, music and lyrics by Richard Thomas
