By overwhelming demand - 6 extra shows on sale from 9am Mon 4 Feb!

The official 50th anniversary celebration! A new play by Jonathan Harvey, starring William Roache (Ken Barlow).

The greatest TV show in the world live on stage.

Due to overwhelming demand, six extra shows for Coronation Street On Stage! – the hysterical new stage play showcasing the biggest scenes from the past 50 years of Britain's longest-running and most-loved soap – have been added and will go on sale to the general public at 9am on Monday, 4 February.

The Auckland season of Coronation Street On Stage!, written by award-winning playwright and Coronation Street scriptwriter Jonathan Harvey, has been extended by six more shows and will now run from Thursday 28 March to Saturday, 6 April.

Coronation Street On Stage! condenses the programme’s 50-year history of births, deaths, marriages and other dramatic events into one action-packed two-hour show, which won enormous critical acclaim throughout Britain.

And who better than to take us on this journey than the journeyman himself: William Roache - aka serial groom Ken Barlow. Roache, who has been there right from the beginning and honoured by the Guinness World Records as the world's longest-serving television actor, has been released from filming duties as a special thank you to the soap’s loyal New Zealand fans.
