 MONKEE BUSINESS THE MUSICAL will have its world premiere at Manchester Opera House in March before moving to other UK cities.
Featuring the Songs of the Monkees
Thursday 29th March – Saturday 14th April 2012
  Monkee Business The Musical is a fabulous new musical
using the wonderful soundtrack of Monkees songs.

Written by Peter Benedict (Naked Flame, Fire Down Under, Deadlock), directed by David Taylor (A Chorus Line at Drury Lane, Cats in Toronto, The Prisoner of Second Avenue at the Haymarket in London.) and choreography by David Morgan (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang UK Tour) it is produced by Michael Rose Ltd.
Monkee Business The Musical tells the story of four innocent boys who fall prey to an inscrupulous producer and are tricked into impersonating one of the most famous groups in the world.  As they struggle to conceal their own personalities, a frantic world tour leads to entanglements with a glamorous Russian Spy, a Tower Beefeater and a railway carriage full of nuns.
Monkee Business will pay homage to both the crazy chaos of the Emmy Award winning TV series and the brilliant music of The Monkees featuring hit after hit including I’m A Believer, Last Train to Clarksville, My Boy Lollipop, You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me, Hey, Hey We’re The Monkees and Daydream Believer alongside many more iconic songs from the era.
Featuring a cast of 20, a nine piece band in the pit and brand new designs by Morgan Large (Flashdance, Never Forget, Footloose), Monkee Business The Musical not only promises to be a nostalgic trip down memory lane for all lovers of The Monkees but also an exciting new musical theatre product whose fantastic score, madcap scenarios, hysterical script and eccentric charm will appeal to you and old alike.
