Given the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, we have rescheduled our production of ‘When The Lights Go On Again’ to 2021. The show will now be performed on Friday 14th, Saturday 15th (two performances) and Sunday 16th May 2021.
In the meantime, we will be contacting all customers who have already purchased tickets for ‘When The Lights Go On Again’ to advise you about transferring your tickets to the new dates, take up our offer of a loyalty vouher (to be used against any of our produtions up until the end of 2022) or to process a refund. Please bear with us, as we have a large number of orders to work through.
Once existing ticket holders have been allocated seats for the new performances, the remaining seats will go on sale at a date to be advised.
While it is a very difficult and uncertain time for us all, we remain positive that we will be able to honour the 76th Anniversary of VE Day next year, and we will continue to support SSAFA throughout our production.
The definitive WWII musical, ‘When The Lights Go On Again’ (WTLGOA) will be returning to the Wirral stage in 2020, to commemorate the 76th anniversary of VE Day.
The musical, written by Roy Sault, is set during the days of World War II and takes audiences through the quirks, humour and tragedy of every day life during the war, culminating in a VE Day street party.
The show will remain a poignant tribute signifying true British spirit overcoming troubled times.
Very much a trip down memory lane for some, the musical is pure nostalgia and recalls the feelings of the era by following the Parker family and their local community during the war efforts. The musical features over 30 classic songs, including “The White Cliffs of Dover”, “Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree” and of course, “We’ll Meet Again”.
The production will feature over 20 named characters, along with children’s roles, and will be performed at the Gladstone Theatre in Port Sunlight, Wirral.
BOST have previously performed this show to sell-out audiences receiving excellent reviews, so we are very much looking forward to staging it once again for this special national celebration.
