Top five shows to see in Sheffield this March

With the evenings getting lighter, March is the perfect time to get out and see some great performances. Here’s our top five shows to see in Sheffield this March:

Billy Ocean – 1 March, Sheffield City Hall

We have been excited about this gig since it was announced. The opening night of the tour by this musical legend who also comes across as one of the nicest and most laid back guys in the music industry. Expecting all the classic hits including this, our favourite 80s classic. For further information and to book visit www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk.

And Then There Were None – 6 to 9 March, Sheffield University Drama Studio

Fans of classic British crime drama will not want to miss this adaption of Agatha Christie’s tale performed by one of the city’s most talented student theatre companies. Witness the tension in the theatre escalate as the characters realise the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again and again.

Coven – 8 March, Sheffield Library Theatre

Three of our all time favourite female folk artists all of whom I have seen performed at least once if not more in the last six months alone, Lady Maisery, O’Hooley & Tidow and Grace Petrie are joining forces to celebrate International Women’s Day. This promises to be a fantastic evening of wonderful music and voices and celebration. For further information and to book visit www.wegottickets.com/event/455298.

Standing at the Sky’s Edge – 15 March to 6 April, Crucible Theatre

No list of things to see in Sheffield this March would be complete without this show, even if, unlike us, you haven’t considered moving to Park Hill. This new musical, featuring songs from Sheffield’s Mercury prize nominated Richard Hawley, promises to take the audience into the hearts and home of the people of Park Hill, from the early days to the present.

Hello Dolly! – 27 to 30 March, Montgomery Theatre

Whether you know and love this classic musical or like myself are only aware of its catchy title track, this show about larger than life matchmaker, who meddles in love lives to ensure everyone lives happily ever after, is presented by one of Sheffield’s oldest theatre companies with a superb reputation for presenting great musical theatre at reasonable prices and should not be missed by any fans of the art form.
