About Starlight Express

All aboard the Starlight Express! Experience a new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic musical and book Starlight Express tickets on TodayTix.

This high-energy musical takes you on a ride through the world of competitive trains, where Rusty, a humble steam engine, is chugging full steam ahead to win the championship race against the electrifying duo, Greaseball and Electra. As the race heats up, Rusty faces a high-stakes battle on the tracks, but he's about to discover that winning the race means more than just being the fastest.

With a pulsating '80s pop-rock soundtrack and impressive roller-skating choreography, Starlight Express is a high-speed thrill full of twists, turns, and surprises that'll keep you on the edge of your seat.

Experience Starlight Express like never before as Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre transforms into The Starlight Auditorium for a truly immersive experience.
