The Broadway Park caravan site is planning to live up to its name and become the home of live music and stage shows in Petersfield.
Organisers have big plans with a host of high-profile names already approached to appear in productions including Kerry Katona, Kris Akabusi and some people rejected from regional auditions of the X Factor.
Park owner Ivor Towbar said: “We’re Petersfield’s answer to Broadway, we have to be, we’re the only thing called Broadway here.
“We’re confident of attracting some big names to the town and will be announcing some announcements in the not too distant future.
“Between you and me talks have already progressed significantly with Joe Pasquale’s people and it looks like he’ll be starring as Bill Sykes in Oliver.”
Broadway’s new era begins next month with a double bill of Michelle McManus tribute act, Michelle McAnus, going toe to toe with wrestling legend Mick McManus and the New New Drifters, featuring two of the originals from the Old New Drifters and a man who once met Benny King – no, not Ben E King, just a man called Benny King, we think he was a plumber.
