Last month we made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming production of ‘When The Lights Go On Again’, as the health of our audience members, cast and crew is of utmost importance. We are pleased to announce however, that we are planning for the show to go ahead later this year, on Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th November 2020.
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 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 75th Anniversary of VE Day later this 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 75th 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.
Initially intended to be performed during the three days immediately leading up to the 75th Anniversary of VE Day (5th, 6th and 7th May), 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.
