Stock Aitken Waterman

“We have been approached many times over the years to authorise a musical using the songs from the Stock Aitken Waterman catalogue and have always resisted, until now! What Debbie, Jason and the team behind the show have created is a truly original and shamelessly enjoyable rollercoaster ride through our hits.” – Mike Stock

Debbie Isitt

“The music of Stock Aitken Waterman has been the soundtrack to both my life and the lives of all my friends. Their songs range from wonderful ballads to real pop anthems to dance floor classics, which are all perfect for an original musical.” – Debbie Issit

Kylie Minogue

“I’m thrilled to announce that I will be joining Stock Aitken Waterman in presenting the new musical! It is the music that inspired a generation (plus my first five albums!) so to have all the SAW hits in this original story will make for a compelling, funny and heartfelt show. Let’s enjoy the magic all over again!” – Kylie Minogue

The Soundtrack

With a songbook that defined a generation comes a musical soundtrack featuring over 10 Number 1 iconic pop hits from Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim, Jason Donovan, Sonia and Dead or Alive.
