Our Day Out: The Musical

An Oldham Coliseum Theatre Production

Mrs Kay's unruly Progress Class is unleashed from the classroom for a day to pile into a bus for a one-off school trip in the Coliseum's latest actor/musician ensemble and musical spectacular. This hilarious and heartwarming tale from the multi award-winning author of Educating Rita and Blood Brothers sees the talented young cast singing and dancing rings around their fraught teachers.

Our Day Out: The Musical will transport you to the school days of lollipop men, packed lunches and young love as this action packed rewrite of the hit 1977 TV show is brought to the Coliseum stage.

"A gloriously funny and touching play by Willy Russell" - The Guardian
