About the Show

The Andrew Lloyd Webber roller-skating rock musical that is one of the longest-running musicals in West End history.

Story: A boy's toy train set comes to life and the characters race to become the 'fastest engine in the world.' Will the underdog, Rusty, triumph and win the race and the heart of observation car, Pearl? Or will the Greaseball gang ruin everything?
