The Arvia, a new ship for P&O Cruises, will host a musical based on the defunct boy band Take That.
The West End musical The Band was adapted into the musical Greatest Days – The Official Take That Musical, which features Take That songs and a plot by Olivier Award-winning author Tim Firth.
Never Forget, Back for Good, A Million Love Songs, Greatest Day, The Flood, Relight My Fire, Shine, and Rule the World are just a few of the Take That songs played during the event.
Greatest Days is thus named in honour of the upcoming The Band movie.
According to the line, Arvia, which is scheduled to go into service in December, will be the only location in the world where viewers may see the show.
The 1993 film Greatest Days centres on five 16-year-old girls who live for Take That. The show follows them as they try to realise their ambition of meeting the boy band whose music served as the soundtrack to their life after 25 years apart.
Paul Ludlow, CEO of P&O Cruises, said: “We are delighted to have worked so closely with Take That to bring this fantastic story to the stage on board Arvia, exclusively for our guests.
“With an amazing cast, handpicked from our Headliners Theatre performers, guests can look forward to a night of world-class entertainment to create a truly unique and extraordinary theatre experience.”
Members of Take That voiced their opinions: “Almost ten years ago, we had the idea of writing a musical with our songs. It was a big wish of ours to make a show with Take That’s music, but without us – not the story of our lives. Our wishes came true and five years ago we debuted The Band Musical to the world. Now we couldn’t be prouder to bring the story to P&O Cruises under its new name – Greatest Days.
“In Tim Firth we found an author who invented a completely different and wonderful story to which our music makes the perfect frame. A story with a lot of heart and friendship. A musical that shows how music brings friends together. The story works so wonderfully, you don’t even have to know our music.”
