Take a step back in time to the 1980s with Lyceum musical Club Tropicana next week.

The fun show, set in a Spanish holiday resort, stars 1980 Eurovision Song Contest finalist Kate Robbins, X Factor 2009 winner Joe McElderry, ex-EastEnder Neil McDermott and former Sugababe Amelle Berrabah, making her musical theatre debut.

The story unfolds in the vibrant Club Tropicana Hotel and it is set to a soundtrack of some of the most iconic hits of the 80s, performed live on stage.

They include Just Can't Get Enough, Take On Me, The Look of Love, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Relax and many more. 

When a bride and groom get cold feet, they decide to jet off to sunnier climes anyway - but little do they realise they’ve both checked into the same hotel!

As well as coming third in Eurovision as part of a group called Prima Donna, Kate Robbins spent the 1980s appearing in Crossroads and providing voices for the satirical puppet show Spitting Image.

The impressions Kate does in the show include Cilla Black and Cilla’s theme song from Surprise Surprise features. Kate actually wrote it for her fellow  Liverpudlian.

Club Tropicana is at the Lyceum, Sheffield from March 4 to 9.
