A stage musical featuring the songs of Take That is coming to Dublin's Bord Gais Energy Theatre next year.

The Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, The Girls)-written show will play at the BGE Theatre from November 6th - 10th 2018.

The show - which was cast via the BBC series 'Let It Shine' - opened in September to positive reviews and follows the story of five childhood friends who grow up with a boyband. "For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything," according to the press release. "25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes."

Take That were also involved in a production capacity and said: "We are incredibly proud and excited that our first production as theatre producers is THE BAND – a musical that we think will touch the hearts of not just our fans, but everyone.”

Tickets are from €21 and on sale from usual outlets this Friday, November 24th.
