Barnum musical at Majestic Theatre

by | 2 May 2019 | Performing Arts, Retford

From 9th to 11th May, don’t miss PT Barnum at the Majestic Theatre, Retford. Follow the legendary showman’s life as he lights up the world with the colour, warmth and excitement of his imagination. See how Chairy, his wife, supports him but tries to keep his feet on the ground, whilst his head is in the stars. Hear the beautiful, spellbinding voice of the singer Jenny Lind. Watch, as the members of Barnum’s Circus get up to their tricks, including aerial hooping, unicycling, plate spinning and more. This much loved musical is brought to you by the award-winning local group that is Retford Operatic Society, entertaining Retford for almost 100 years. Hear and see this talented local cast perform Cy Coleman’s wonderfully exuberant score including the hits ‘Come Follow the Band’, ‘The Colours of My Life’ and ‘There’s a Sucker Born Ev’ry Minute’.

In the words of Barnum himself, ‘What are you waiting for?’ — book your tickets today! Tickets are available via the Majestic Box Office on 01777 706866 or visit
