THE one where Friends becomes a musical.

It may have been off the air for 15 years but the beloved sitcom lives on in theatres thanks to an all singing, all dancing parody that has announced its first run of UK tour dates.

The new run includes a date at Parr Hall on Saturday, April 4.

Friends The Musical Parody celebrates and pokes fun at the misadventures of the group of 20-something pals from the hit TV show as they navigate the pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan.

A spokesman said: "This is an hilarious good-hearted romp through our favourite moments from the hit TV show in an uncensored, hilarious, fast-paced, music-filled production.

"Ross, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Rachel, haven’t gone anywhere and are singing and dancing their way back into our hearts in the first UK and Irish tour of the hilarious off-Broadway and Las Vegas hit musical that lovingly lampoons the popular TV sitcom. You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll Unagi!"

The plot sees the six friends enjoying a typical day sipping coffee at Central Perk, until an unexpected runaway bride enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear.

The show is created by Bob and Tobly McSmith, the duo behind five musical parodies including Saved by the Bell.

Tickets are from £28. Visit or call 442345.
