Kate Prince brings the music of Sting to life with her stunning new work


Choose life, choose love, choose hope.

The peaceful village of Bebko is alive with joyous celebrations. Suddenly, under attack, everything changes forever. Three siblings, Leto, Mati and Tana, must embark on perilous journeys in order to survive.

Message In A Bottle is a spectacular new dance-theatre show from triple-Olivier Award nominee, Kate Prince to the iconic hits of 17-time Grammy Award-winning artist Sting, including Every Breath You Take, Roxanne, Walking On The Moon and more. With a mix of exhilarating dance styles, high-energy footwork and breath-taking athleticism, Message In A Bottle tells a unifying and uplifting story of humanity and hope.

Message In A Bottle is the latest masterpiece from the ground-breaking creator behind West End hits Some Like it Hip Hop, Into the Hoods, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (choreography) and SYLVIA (Old Vic), and features the astonishing talents of dance storytelling powerhouse, ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company.

Message In A Bottle features haze effects and some scenes of an adult nature.

Critic reviews

This is an eyeball-blistering bulldozer of a show


Exhilarating, spellbinding dancing

Musical Theatre Review

An unlikely success but a success none the less

London Box Office

A vigorous production that shakes and moves to tell a tale of today’s humanity

The Upcoming

Going well beyond the usual jukebox show, Sting and ZooNation’s collaboration is a conceptual stage show of unusual depth

The Stage


The Guardian

There is something considered and sophisticated that gives Message in a Bottle its watchability

Broadway World

If not self-indulgent, the production certainly has the tendency to feel far more contrived than is desirable


Wonderful performers can’t save this hip hop dance show based around the music of Sting from being a fundamentally terrible idea
