Celebrating over 23 years touring in the UK after first appearing at the Edinburgh Festival in 1989 , the Lady Boys of Bangkok is now officially the largest and longest continuous touring cabaret show in the UK touring some 11 city centre sites and some 40 plus theatres for 9 months each season.

Created by producers Carol and Phillip Gandey for Gandey World Class Productions, each season rehearsals start at the end of January in Thailand where the cast are brought together with our costumiers, lighting designers and the creative team to produce this iconic production that gets bigger and better each year,

So much so that when a cast member retires or takes a year out we have so many dancers wanting to audition for a place on the tour it takes weeks to narrow down the competition and select a new performer, but only the best will do and the cast work incredibly hard to present and create the production that is The Lady Boys Of Bangkok,

The creative team then spend several weeks with a costume department and set designers to put the show together in the UK whilst rehearsals continue in Thailand before the cast are flown in to set the show in the UK each spring, often the city centre venues and the theatres are booked a couple of years ahead to ensure the show has the best venues and is performing somewhere each night between April
and November as there is a team of 26 people on the theatre tour alone to ensure every night gets the polished and spectacular performance of this show that our audiences love,

Funnier, Cheekier and as glamorous as ever, this show is one not to be missed and we look forward to seeing you all on our 2022 theatre tour with our new production,,,,, Summer of Fun !!!
