Brendan Cole Returns To Storyhouse As Show Man



Strictly favourite is back with an exciting new show

Brendan Cole is about to embark on his most theatrical live tour production yet, which includes two performances at Storyhouse in Chester.

Show Man takes its inspiration from the magic of theatre and the movies, and Brendan Cole is keen that audiences experience the most exceptional night of entertainment.

Brendan Cole – Show Man comes to Storyhouse on Sunday 24 February, with performances at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are on sale now.

The very first winner of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing is joined by an amazing team of professional dancers, singers and a live band to showcase the superb choreography and dazzling performance that has kept him in the public eye for 15 years.

Show Man is Brendan Cole’s fifth theatrical production, and the new show will see the dancer tour the UK for the 11th time. Each tour plays to ever increasing audiences, and around 60,000 in total are expected to watch the shows in 2019. The tour will visit 31 towns and cities across the UK and Ireland.

Join charismatic Brendan for a night of beautiful ballroom magic and high energy Latin passion, live music, stunning lighting, special effects, and choreography full of excitement, intimacy, emotion and skill – as well as lots of laughter and chat throughout the show.


I’m very excited to announce my latest production Brendan Cole – Show Man. Anytime I create a new production, I get a real sense of excitement as I start choosing the material, the dancers and the musicians involved, and Show Man feels more exciting than anything I’ve done before.It has a dynamic new feel and will be quite different to my previous four productions.

This new show is more theatrical than ever before. Five male dancers, three female dancers, choirs, a violinist and brand new staging, which will allow the choreography to be exciting and different. Bigger and better lifts, some very strong theatrical numbers, as well as a new look set, this promises to be something special.

When producing any show, my aim is to wow the audience and give them everything they’d expect and much, much more. Whether it be great production values, exciting choreography, spectacular lighting and of course amazing talent from my sensational dancers and musicians, it’s so important to me to create a complete show.

Over the last 10 years we’ve created certain numbers throughout the different productions that have really stood out and we’ve loved performing. Subsequently we have had many requests from audiences asking that we perform them again. With this in mind, I’ve decided to recreate a handful of them for the new show.

One in particular has been a personal favourite for me, Cinderella by Stephen Curtis Chapman. It’s a magical number, telling the story of a father and daughter, which I created with my baby girl Aurélia in mind shortly after her birth. I can’t wait to perform it again along with several other favourites, as well as many very exciting and brand new numbers, all under the Show Man title. This really is becoming a very big show and I can’t wait to get it on the road.

So if you love live music from one of the best touring bands you will ever see, as well as exciting and emotive dance and fancy a great night at the theatre, this show will be for you! I’d suggest you bring a friend as you’ll want to be dancing in the aisles throughout, and if you know any Strictly fans, it might just make the perfect gift. This is going to be the greatest Show Man!
