TIME- TRAVELLING SPECTACLE AS BRAND NEW MUSICAL COMEDY COMES TO ROMFORD
This September, the Brookside Theatre are proud to present the world premiere of GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART THE MUSICAL, a brand new musical comedy based on the award-winning BBC TV series.
Running for six hugely successful seasons between 1993 and 1999 and starring Nicholas Lyndhurst, the show became an instant classic when it was first broadcast. With its incomparable mix of comedy and drama, it became a firm favourite gaining fans worldwide.
Meet Gary Sparrow, an ordinary man with an extraordinary life; almost a devoted and attentive husband and a sometimes loyal and dependable best friend. By day, a very bored and uninspired TV repairman but by night, an accidental time traveller extraordinaire.
Whilst walking around the East End of London, Gary stumbles across a strange alley, Duckett’s Passage, and is transported back in time to a foggy, war torn London, to barrage balloons and the Blitz and in particular to a little pub called The Royal Oak and a pretty barmaid called Phoebe…
Leading an extraordinary ‘double life’, Gary is unprepared for the complications in his love life when he falls for Phoebe in the 1940’s whilst being married to Yvonne in the present day. But when the time comes to choose, which way will he go?
Featuring hits from the 1980’s and 1940’s including With A Little Help From My Friends, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Addicted to Love, If I Could Turn Back Time, Let’s Hear It For The Boy, In The Mood and many, many more this is a sensational new musical comedy from the genius writers that gave us The New Statesmen, Shine of Harvey Moon and Birds of a Feather and the hit musical, Dreamcoats and Petticoats.
GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART THE MUSICAL will be performed at the Brookside Theatre, Eastern Road from Wed 12th until Saturday 22nd September 2018. Tickets are on sale now online from the theatre’s website, www.brooksidetheatre.com or telephone 01708 755775.
