The Bodyguard at Sunderland Empire

About

The Bodyguard, the international award-winning smash hit musical based on the blockbuster film, is heading on tour in 2019 and will return to Sunderland Empire from 12 - 23 November 2019.

Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge – what they don't expect is to fall in love.

Alexandra Burke returns to the role of ‘Rachel Marron’ having played the role to critical and audience acclaim in both the West End and the subsequent sell out 2015/2016 tour. She first rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor and her debut number one single Hallelujah sold over one million copies in the UK, a first for a British female soloist. She most recently appeared as ‘Svetlana’ in “Chess” at the London Coliseum and can currently be seen as ‘Roxie’ in “Chicago” at the West End’s Phoenix Theatre. Last year she reached the final of “Strictly Come Dancing”. Her other theatre credits include ‘Deloris Van Cartier’ in the national tour of the musical “Sister Act”. 

A ‘brilliant’ (The Times), breathtakingly romantic thriller, The Bodyguard features a whole host of Whitney Houston's greatest hits including Queen of the Night, So Emotional, One Moment in Time, Saving All My Love, I'm Your Baby Tonight, Run to You, I Have Nothing, Jesus Loves Me, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and one of the greatest hit songs of all time – I Will Always Love You.

Alexandra Burke will not be performing the role of Rachel Marron at all shows. Patrons should check before booking.

Opening Times

The Bodyguard (2.30pm and 7.30pm available) (12 Nov 2019 - 23 Nov 2019)
