When The Lights Go On Again.

Published:

OCTOBER SHOW ANNOUNCED! Never before performed in the North West, this new British Musical written by Roy Sault, is set during the years of the Second World War. Described as “the definitive World War II musical”, ‘WHEN THE LIGHTS GO ON AGAIN’ promises a trip down memory lane for many. Full of pure nostalgia, this is a tale of the British spirit overcoming troubled times with humour and friendship. It features over 30 unforgettable songs of the era, including ‘Bless ‘Em All’, ‘The White Cliffs Of Dover’, ‘A Nightingale Sang In Berkley Square’ and ‘Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree’. This musical story recalls the feel of the era by following the experiences of a family and their local community during war time. Scenes feature an air raid, queuing for rations, dancing on a Saturday night, an army camp concert and other typical situations, culminating in a VE Day street party.
