Kinky Boots is Set to Extend to February Whilst The Railway Children Adds New Dates to January

Two shows have added new dates in the capital in recent weeks, taking both of them into 2016. Kinky Boots, which is yet to open its doors at the Adelphi Theatre, is set to continue until February 2016 now that it has extended, whilst The Railway Children, currently running at the King’s Cross Theatre, has added new dates to January.

Set in a Northampton shoe factory, Kinky Boots is based on the film of the same name and focuses on a man who has inherited the factory from his father. But he cannot maintain the place the way his father did and he starts to see the business fail, with bankruptcy looming. So if he wants to save the family name he is going to have to take drastic measures and that’s when Lola enters the picture, a drag entertainer with an outrageous plan that will turn many heads. But as time goes on it seems that the pair have more in common than simply saving the factory.

It is based on the film of the same name and also features music from the hit 80s pop star Cyndi Lauper, with a start date set for August 2015. Those picking up theatre tickets will now have extra dates to choose from as well as the show is now booking to Saturday 6th February 2016.

Meanwhile, The Railway Children is based on the classic book by E Nesbit that tells the story of a family moving to the countryside after the disappearance of The Father. Children Bobby, Peter and Phyllis must adjust to this new life after living in the city but when they make a new friendship with the station master Mr Perks their eyes are opened to the railway, as well as many dramas and adventures.

The production opened at the King’s Cross Theatre in December 2014 before officially opening in the new year, with various performers taking to the stage. It is now booking at the venue for performances up to Saturday 2nd January 2016.
