LONDON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- "Monkee Business," a stage show inspired by the music of The Monkees, will have its world premiere at England's Manchester Opera House in March, producers said.

The musical, which will include the pop group's 1960s hits "I'm a Believer," "Hey, Hey We're the Monkees" and "Daydream Believer," will open in Glasgow, Scotland, and Sunderland, England after its Manchester debut, the BBC reported.

"Manchester is the ideal place for the original creative process necessary for developing large-scale new musicals like 'Monkee Business,'" said Howard Panter, joint chief executive of Ambassador Theatre Group, which owns the Manchester Opera House. "It is a city with a great foundation in music with knowledgeable and sophisticated audiences who love and understand fantastic musical theater."
