Let Love Lift You Up Where You Belong

A story of love and honour against all odds
Based on the iconic movie and now adapted for the stage by original screenwriter Douglas Day Stewart with Sharleen Cooper Cohen, it follows working class heroes Zack Mayo and Paula Pokrifki, as they overcome their upbringing and personal obstacles to achieve their dreams.
As a big budget musical, under the direction of Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), An Officer and a Gentleman - The Musical brings a bold new vision to the classic movie, adding passionate duets, show stopping solos and dramatic scenes, made more powerful by their compelling chemistry.
An athletic cast of handsome Navy recruits are put through their paces in a two hour dance and drill marathon. But these men have met their match in the talented female cast of ‘wanna be wives’ who turn up the heat on stage with their sexy dancing and soaring vocals.
All the action on stage is set to a sizzling rock-pop score with memorable solos and more than one power ballad including the Academy Award winning song "Up Where We Belong".
Gutsy, unashamedly star-spangled, and overflowing with the passion of a great love story....An Officer and a Gentleman will lift you up and out of your seat.
