Happy days are here again
As we enter 2014, the Churchill Theatre, Bromley, unveils the strongest season for quite a while.
Not only is there something for everyone, but the theatre has the best of the new productions, returning favourites, plus the cream of original, tribute and comedy acts.
January opens with ‘HAPPY DAYS’ (January 11-18), the musical based on the hit TV series, written by the creator, Gary Marshall, with music by Paul Williams. Starring Heidi Range, Ben Freeman and Cheryl Baker, the UK Premiere is ahead of a nationwide tour. ‘BUDDY’ returns on January 28 and runs to February 1. It’s still the original and still the best Juke Box Musical, and is 100% authentic.
It never fails, and a high percentage of patrons see it not only for the third or fourth time, but also take younger family members ‘DREAMBOATS AND PETTICOATS’ is welcomed back to its original home after enormous success both in the West End and nationwide.
The perennial show runs between February 10 and 15, and undoubtedly will sell quickly – as will two comedy smashes ‘THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG’ (February 3 to 8), and ‘SEE HOW THEY RUN’ starring Warwick Davis and The Reduced Height Theatre Company (19-22nd) really can’t wait to see that one!
March opens with ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ (March 4 to 8) – without doubt the greatest musical of all time. The acclaimed Sadler’s Wells Production is as fresh and exciting as ever, and will introduce the classic songs to a new generation.
David Essex shows his comic skills the following week, March 10 to 15, in ‘THE DISHWASHERS’, a new challenge for him ahead of the final ‘Once In A Lifetime’ tour.
