Tickets on sale today for cinema screening of Sheridan Smith's Funny Girl

The musical Funny Girl starring Sheridan Smith as Fanny Brice is to be screened in cinemas nationwide on 24th October.

Michael Mayer's production of the classic musical  originally ran at the Menier Chocolate Factory in December 2015, and following a sold out run transferred to the Savoy Theatre in April 2016 and embarked on a UK tour in 2017. The production was recorded during the final week of the run at Manchester Palace Theatre by Digital Theatre with tickets going on sale from 10:00 am today.

Also starring in the recorded version is Darius Campbell as Nick Arnstein, Nigel Barber (Florenz Ziegfeld), Zoë Ann Bown (Mrs Meeker), Martin Callaghan (Mr Keeney), Jennifer Harding (Emma), Rachel Izen (Mrs Brice), Joshua Lay (Eddie) and Myra Sands (Mrs Strakosh); with Rhianne Alleyne, Kit Benjamin, Lloyd Davies, Flora Dawson, Joseph Dockree, Abigayle Honeywill, Brontë Lavine, David Mcintosh, Peter Nash, Gillian Parkhouse, Tom Partridge, Nova Skipp, Alexandra Waite-Roberts, Sam Wingfield and Alexandra Wright.

Smith said of the release: "Fanny Brice was an extraordinary woman who broke the mould for female entertainment, not only that, she was a brilliant comic! Her lack of vanity and her goofiness made her unique and very special, and the role was an utter joy to play. I'm beyond excited to be able to share our production of Funny Girl with audiences across the UK."
