Italian chic, European glamour and the timeless music and songs of the legendary Cole Porter combine in a glittering new stage musical based on the bittersweet movie comedy which made a worldwide star of Audrey Hepburn.

A multi Academy Award winning movie when first released 70 years ago, Roman Holiday follows a youthful princess and an American journalist on a frenetic 24-hour adventure through the delights of the Italian capital. Ann, a young princess visiting Rome on a goodwill tour, escapes from the watchful eye of her chaperones. She meets Joe who offers to show her around the city, but Joe’s editor has demanded a story regarding a missing princess.

Through the course of one charming day and eventful night in Rome, Ann and Joe grow closer, but will true romance blossom before Ann has to return to her royal duties…?

Now featuring the unforgettable music of Cole Porter including Easy To Love, You Do Something To Me, In The Still Of The Night, Just One Of Those Things and Night and Day, the beloved movie has been adapted into a dazzling musical by Kirsten Guenther and Paul Blake, who co-wrote the stage version of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas.

Award-winning West End and Broadway star Michael D. Xavier plays Joe. Michael's recent credits include Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close on Broadway, Olivier Award nominations for Into The Woods at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, and Love Story (Duchess Theatre). Rebecca Collingwood’s recent credits include While The Sun Shines, Widowers’ Houses and Orange Tree Theatre’s Arms and the Man. 

Roman Holiday is directed by double Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee Jeremy Sams, whose directing credits include Noises Off in the West End and Jason Robert Brown’s 13. He also wrote the script for the West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and translated the award-nominated Amour on Broadway. Chroeography is by the Olivier Award winner Matt Cole and Jane McMurtrie (Newsies).
