Feel-good musical

A FUNNY, feel-good musical is the order of the day when the unforgettable Radio Times comes to the Devonshire Park Theatre from October 9-13.

Written by Noel Gay (Me and My Girl), Radio Times is a funny and fast moving musical with breathtaking dancing and musicianship of the first order.

The cast of actor musicians play over 15 instruments live on stage whilst singing and dancing their way through some of Gay’s best songs, including Run Rabbit Run, Hey Little Hen and Whose Been Polishing The Sun.

Produced by the critically acclaimed Watermill Theatre in Newbury, whose past productions include Spend Spend Spend!, Hot Mikado and Sunset Boulevard, which all transferred to the West End, Radio Times has already received a clutch of four star reviews from national critics.

Radio Times follows the trials of the Variety Bandwagon cast who are about to broadcast live on radio to America for the first time.

The clock ticks away, the line-up is shrinking and there’s no sign of Sammy, the star of the show. With seconds to spare he arrives with Gary, a Hollywood movie idol, in tow.

The broadcast seems assured but Sammy’s girlfriend seems to know Gary of old and starts to question her commitment.

The cast includes Gary Wilmot, whose previous work includes West End appearances in Chicago and Me And My Girl, and Sara Crowe who appeared in Private Lives in London and in Four Weddings and A Funeral.

Evening performances are at 7.45pm, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost from £15.50-£23.50, call 412000.
