See The Bodyguard at the Sunderland Empire
The award-winning smash hit musical The Bodyguard comes to Sunderland this November. Based on the blockbuster film, the sensational stage adaptation is one of the most exciting shows on tour this year. From 12th – 23th November, The Bodyguard will run at Sunderland Empire, with tickets available now.
Former secret service agent Frank is signed up to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. They both want to be in charge of the other, butting heads and constantly sparring. But what they don’t count on, is falling madly in love with each other.
X Factor winner Alexandra Burke will reprise her role as Rachel Marron. She first took on the role during the West End tour to critical acclaim. Her astounding vocals and ability to step into the role once played by the late Whitney Houston have wowed audience across the UK. Burke has also starred in huge productions like ‘Sister Act’ and ‘Chicago’.
The Bodyguard features an incredible score, inspired by Whitney’s catalogue of unforgettable hits. ‘I Have Nothing’, ‘Saving All My Love’ and ‘Run to You’ are just some of the songs to sing a long to. Not to mention the film’s iconic soundtrack ‘I Will Always Loved You’.
The show has welcomed rave reviews, described as a ‘brilliant and breathtaking romantic thriller’ by The Times. Now’s your chance to catch The Bodyguard with tickets to see the show when it hits Sunderland this year.
The show lasts for 2 hours 5 minutes, including an interval. Burke is scheduled to appear at all evening shows except Wednesday 20th November. Tickets are expected to sell out quickly, so grab them while you can to witness the incredible love story brought to life.
