Polka Dot Pantomimes are also back for another year with Aladdin, with an extended run of five weeks.
Councillor Paul Stokes, South Kesteven District Council cabinet member for leisure and culture, said: “We have a superb line up of musical performances this season.
“Top of the list is A Flock of Seagulls, with tribute shows From Gold To Rio, Counterfeit Seventies, Made in the 80s and Revisiting Amy (Whitehouse) sure to win standing ovations.
“For children, we are pleased to announce Splash Test Dummies with their splish-splashing circus set, as well as Rhubarb Theatre with Finding Chester - a comedy puppetry, mask, dance and song production.
“Remember that we now have five weeks of pantomime fun available, so make sure you book your tickets for Aladdin quickly as they always sell out.”
