When practicing his new dance routine late one night in Horace's hotel he wakes the sleeping Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers) in the room below. She knocks on his door to complain and the pair are immediately attracted to each other, but there are complications when Dale mistakes Jerry for Horace who is married to her friend.

Top Hat the movie had five songs: Isn’t This A Lovely Day (To Be Caught In The Rain), Cheek To Cheek, No Strings, Piccolino and the title song Top Hat (White Tie And Tails).  The production team (director Matthew White, choreographer Bill Deamer and producer Kenny Wax) have also included Let’s Face The Music And Dance and I’m Putting All My Eggs In One Basket.

Booking is already open and although it is expected that most of the cast will transfer into London the final list is still to be confirmed.
