The show, which made its debut at Manchester Opera House in November 2023, follows the storyline of Ella and Nathan, a star crossed couple with “wedding jitters and tropical dreams”.

The young couple are set to take the biggest step of their relationship, tying the knot and becoming husband and wife. However, it may not go as planned.

The cast is made up of the finest West End talent, including Lucie-Mae Sumner as Ella and Billy Roberts as Nathan.
