Beautiful - The Carole King Musical (coming in June 2024)

The award-winning Shrewsbury Musical Theatre Company produce the Shropshire Premiere Beautiful, The Carole King Musical.

Carole King was an ordinary girl with extraordinary talent long before she became the chart-topping music legend she is today. During her teenage years, she fought her way into the music industry and sold her first single, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, when she was only seventeen.

By the time she reached her twenties she had the husband of her dreams and a career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, from Aretha Franklin to The Monkees, The Drifters, to The Shirelles. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to fall apart that she finally managed to find her true voice.

Beautiful brings the inspiring story of Carole King's rise to stardom to the stage. Charting the ups and downs of her journey from being one half of a hit song writing team to becoming one of the biggest solo pop acts in history.

Featuring unforgettable classics such as "You've Got a Friend", "One Fine Day", "So Far Away", "Take Good Care of My Baby", "Up on the Roof", "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", and "Natural Woman", this Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning musical phenomenon is filled with the songs you remember — and a story you'll never forget.
