There will be dancing in the streets as news of The New Theatre's Christmas show breaks.

Award winning show Motown The Musical will be sweeping into town from Tuesday December 17 – Saturday January 4, with tickets going on sale next Friday.

With music and lyrics from the Motown catalogue and book by Motown founder Berry Gordy, the production features a live orchestra playing 50 Motown tracks including Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, I’ll Be There, Stop! In The Name Of Love, My Girl, I Heard It through the Grapevine and tells the story behind the classic hits, uncovering the legendary record label that changed music history and created the soundtrack of a generation.  

And with this year marking the 60th anniversary of Motown, Christmas in Oxford looks set to be a raging success.

Creative consultant, Michael Lovesmith said: “The UK has kept Motown alive and is one of the reasons why Motown is still so successful and loved today. The vibe here is fantastic, audiences are screaming and cheering and it’s incredible, it’s like being back in one of the shows from the 70s. We are so lucky to be able to continue sharing this incredible music today.”
