The Rhythmics

Brand new British musical The Rhythmics has been announced with a concept album due for release.

The show is co-produced by Aria Entertainment and Metta Theatre and will drop an album this Friday, August 7 after recording during lockdown.


It follows an all male rhythmic gymnastics performance ensemble who soar to worldwide fame.

A synopsis shares: "Hapless single-dad Grey is in a rut. Teenage daughter Silva packs him off to revive his rockstar dreams. He successfully auditions for ‘Nick & the Rhythmics’ only to realise… He’s actually signed up for an all-male Rhythmic Gymnastics troupe.

"Against the odds these burly blokes twirl their ‘ribbons of fire’ as far the World Championships – and along the way Grey finally learns to embrace life. Calendar Girls meets Full Monty in this joyous new musical."

The piece has a book and lyrics from Poppy Burton-Morgan with music and lyrics by Ben Glasstone.

The show will also have fully integrated BSL choreography from Mark Smith.
