With the Summer fast becoming a distant memory and the glorious Made By Storyhouse season of plays both at the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre and Storyhouse itself over for another year, the Autumn/Winter season at Storyhouse kicks off with a reminder of the sunny days of just a few weeks ago in the form of Summer Holiday.
The successful stage version of the hit 1960s film starring Cliff Richard comes to Chester aboard a big red London bus from Tuesday 11 – Saturday 15 September.
In 1963 Cliff Richard and the Shadows took off on a joyous jaunt across Europe in a Routemaster bus in the film Summer Holiday.
The stage show stars musical theatre star Ray Quinn taking on Sir Cliff’s famous role as Don who, with his fellow London Transport bus mechanics, journey through Paris, the Alps, Italy and then Greece, along the way picking up an all female group in a clapped-out Morris Minor and a young American pop star on the run from her domineering mother!
The hit-filled musical includes classics such as In the Country, Summer Holiday, Travellin’ Light, Bachelor Boy, Move It, Living Doll, The Young Ones and On the Beach.
We Are Chester’s very own Bachelor Boy Paul Crofts will be Travellin Light and heading to Storyhouse to see the show. Watch out for his review very soon.
