BE PREPARED to get ‘in the mood’ when Bugle Boy comes to Eastbourne from July 17-28.

Tracing the life and loves of legendary music icon, Glenn Miller, this toe-tapping musical returns to the Devonshire Park Theatre for two weeks.

Featuring a live 16-piece big band this acclaimed show is the story of one man’s sheer determination to find a unique sound and a quest that became his musical Holy Grail.

Bugle Boy is the first musical about the life and music of 1940s musician and bandleader Glenn Miller and features many of his world famous tunes.

The talented cast of 25 actors and musicians deliver a show which traces the iconic band-leader’s life from his teenage years to his untimely and mysterious disappearance in 1944, with Glenn Miller’s own world-famous music weaving its way through an emotional and inspiring storyline.

Glenn Miller is synonymous with big band music and this entertaining and endearing musical explores the bandleader’s work ethic and high musical standard, his relationships with friends and family, and the hard musical road that took him from civvy-street to the US army.

The toe-tapping score includes 30 songs such as Moonlight Serenade, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Pennsylvania 6-5000, String Of Pearls, St Louis Blues March, American Patrol, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and In The Mood, amongst others.
