Preview: The Magic of Motown, White Rock Theatre. Saturday, June 23, 7.30pm. £21.50.

The non-stop spectacular features 36 chart-toppers from The Supremes, Temptations, Four Tops, Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Martha Reeves, Lionel Richie and more.

An all-star cast, a talented live band that faithfully reproduces Motown’s original Detroit sound, 16 sparkling costume changes and tightly choreographed dance routines saw the show attract glowing reviews in 2011.

This year is special as it marks 50 years of hits from the Motown record label.

The Magic of Motown revives all-time favourites such as Stop in the Name of Love; Signed, Sealed, Delivered; My Guy; What Becomes of the Broken Hearted; and I Heard it Through the Grapevine.

Show producer Michael Taylor said: “Sadly, many of the original Motown legends are either no longer with us or longer touring.

“The Magic of Motown is the nearest you’ll get to authentically capturing their incredible musical legacy in a live show.

“Our young cast is able to reflect the exuberance and excitement of these songs as they were originally performed.”
