Once there was a time with no mobiles, no online dating and no Facebook, when teenage girls waited with bated breath by the letterbox for their weekly issue of Jackie Magazine. In Jackie The Musical we revisit those heady days, and tell the story of a recent divorcée who seeks advice once more from the pages of her old Jackie annuals.
The quizzes, the fashion tips, the ‘do’s and don’ts on first date’ and above all the Cathy and Claire problem pages are all eagerly devoured by our plucky heroine as she revisits the dizzy world of the teen bible. With her ex and a handsome new guy in tow, the valuable lessons she learnt as a girl begin to influence her future and Jackie discovers the one person in control of her life is… her.
Starring Janet Dibley (The Two of Us, EastEnders, Fat Friends), Olivier Award nominee Graham Bickley (Ragtime, Bread) and Nicholas Bailey (EastEnders, The Archers), Jackie The Musical is accompanied by a pulsating sound track of classic ’70s hits. Thrill once more to the unmistakable sounds of pop idols Donny Osmond, David Cassidy, Marc Bolan and many more.
Book by Mike James and directed by Anna Linstrum, with original choreography by Arlene Phillips, this fun and feisty night out is a must see.

Dancing in the Auditorium
We know that some of our audiences love to get up and have a dance when they come to see bands and tribute acts at the Belgrade, and that’s fine by us.
We do, however, have a number of patrons that want either to remain seated and enjoy watching the performers, or simply aren’t physically able to stand up for long periods of time.
To try to please everyone, we ask audiences to stay seated until at least half an hour after the interval, at which point people are free to stand up and dance unless this blocks other patrons’ views or disturbs their enjoyment. Under these circumstances audience members should re-take their seat or move into the aisle – although it should be noted that the latter may still disturb other patrons’ views.
Please note however, that due to the rake in the circle, it is unsafe for Patrons to dance up there, so if you would like to ensure that your view isn’t affected, you might want to consider booking a seat in this area.
Thank you for your co-operation.
