The Choir of Man features a stellar line-up, comprising accomplished actors, musicians and instrumentalists including seasoned performers who have captivated audiences spanning the globe alongside celebrated stars from London’s West End.
A versatile ensemble of (extra)ordinary blokes will serenade audiences with an electric repertoire – from pub anthems and folk melodies to Broadway hits and timeless rock classics – all delivered with a roof raising fervour.
Featuring songs from legendary artists both past and present including Adele, Avicii, Paul Simon, Sia, Guns N’ Roses, Katy Perry, Australia’s own John Farnham and a myriad more, there is something for everyone in this joyous and uplifting performance suitable for all generations.
Created by Nic Doodson and Andrew Kay, The Choir of Man offers an unequivocal 90 minutes of unadulterated joy. It’s a celebration. It’s a musical spectacle. It’s a beer fuelled explosion of spine-tingling melodies, dynamic dance routines and high energy foot-stomping choreography.

In recognition of its outstanding performance, the production received a nomination for Best Entertainment or Comedy Play at the prestigious 2022 Olivier Awards.
