Following a cracking London run in 2023, POLICE COPS: THE MUSICAL will open at the Southwark Playhouse Elephant for 7 weeks, from 1 March 2024. You can book your ticket and hotel package with London Theatre Breaks soon.
I saw it at the Edinburgh Fringe in the summer of ’23 and it was the highlight of my Fringe. So what is Police Cops the musical all about I hear you ask!
Set in the US of A in 1980 the show is all tight jeans, fast cars, and uncompromising facial hair. A pair of mismatched police cops are on the case to bring down the baddest cat in America!
Featuring a brand-new score written by Brit Award winning Ben Adams (of chart topping boyband A1 fame and writer of Eugenius! The Musical), the Police Cops are bringing their fast paced, action packed physical comedy back to the stage in their biggest show yet.
Returning to the show are creators Zachary Hunt, Nathan Parkinson and Tom Roe, with Melinda Orengo and Natassia Bustamante.
If you are into knowing who is to thank (or blame) the creative team is Rich Morris (Musical Supervision, Arrangements and Orchestrations), Matt Cole (Choreographer), Andrew Exeter (Set & Lighting), Charlie Smith (Sound) Gabriel Chernick (Musical Director) and Pearson Casting (Casting Director).
And if you want to know who to tell…
