Now Here’s a Funny Story by Mitch FeralDirected by Jan Hunt (of Good Old Days fame)
A jaunty romp through the history of the Golden Age of Music Hall. Experienced Music Hall artists, Tommy Parsons & Airlie Scott take you on a journey from its very beginnings through to its 1890s heyday with the likes of Marie Lloyd and Champagne Charlie, on to wartime recruitment and the cross-dressing Vesta Tilley of the Great War.
**** “a decidedly upbeat….whistlestop singalong history tour…”
“Excellent entertainment with appeal for everyone… amusing, touching, rowdy”
Brian Dazley, Max Miller Appreciation Society
A fun sing-along evening is guaranteed for people of all ages and highly illuminating for those interested in the roots of popular entertainment, the culture of the late Victorian era and The First World War.
DIRECTED by JAN HUNT of BBC’s The Good Old Days fame.
