Musical is a real treat for Status Quo fans

Gatepost Theatre Company will be presenting the world premiere of their new show Whatever You Want at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre from March 26-29.

The show has been written by the company’s musical director, Kate Baker, and follows a diverse bunch of holiday goers as they depart for their summer vacation to Ibiza in 1979, and the adventure that ensues under the Spanish sun – alongside an excellent soundtrack featuring 28 songs by the classic rock band Status Quo.

Originally written in 2009, Kate and her husband Jim, who is directing the show, have worked tirelessly for the past five years to secure the performing rights and can now finally bring the show to the stage.

Status Quo classics such as Caroline, Paper Plane, Burning Bridges, Margarita Time and, of course, Whatever You Want are just a few of the all-time great songs that were made famous by the long-running British band.

Whatever You Want will be presented nightly, starting at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets are on sale at

Gatepost Theatre Company has an age range of 12 to 52 and has been performing together for more than 11 years.
