As the Princes Theatre continues with its programme as Covid restrictions ease, there is one show that is bound to please many. Bringing Back The Good Times promises to blow away the lockdown blues and spread enough happiness and joy to lift the spirts of the nation.
You can join Neil Sands and his fabulous West End cast for a nostalgic afternoon trip down Memory Lane, when they appear at the Clacton theatre at 2pm on Tuesday, 27 July as part of its 30 date nationwide tour.
Over the past fifteen years Neil Sands Productions have become renowned for their matinee nostalgia shows, regularly selling-out theatres all around the country, with afternoons filled with music and memories of happy bygone days.
Produced especially to put smiles on our faces in the journey out of lockdown, this unforgettable afternoon of non-stop nostalgia is filled with so many wonderful songs that will bring back special memories of happier times. From Doris Day’s Que Sera Sera, Neil Diamonds Sweet Caroline, to Dusty’s I Only Wanna be With You, there is a huge mixture from the glamour of Abba to rolling out the barrel in an old time sing a-long. You will be At The Hop as we Rock Around The Clock, through the 1950’s and go swinging through the 60’s with hits from The Beatles, Elvis, Cilla, Manfred Mann, Lulu, Tina Turner and even Benny Hill.
Be transported back in time with a heart-warming tribute to the Forces’ Sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn, with touching versions of A Nightingale Sang In Berkley Square, There’ll Be Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover, and of course We’ll Meet Again.
There is a treat for lovers of the musicals with a beautiful rendition of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Misérables and everyone is sure to join in with our flag-waving patriotic finale as we salute the veterans of our Armed forces with the songs that won the war.
Joining Neil for this incredibly special afternoon of music and fun are two amazingly talented young ladies with outstanding voices. Both Babette Smith and Sarah Brown have graced many West End stages. With their stunning outfits and superb vocals they are certain to stop the show with what is sure to be an emotional moment as we pay our thanks to the heroes of the NHS with the touching Here’s To The Heroes from the film Dancing with Wolves.
The Princes Theatre is keeping some socially-distanced seats for audience members, and is looking forward to welcoming people back to enjoy live entertainment again.
Alex Porter, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism at Tendring District Council – which runs the Princes Theatre – encouraged people to book up and come along.
“This is a classic show, always popular at the Princes Theatre, and one which comes with great reviews,” Councillor Porter said.
With backing from the very talented Golden Times, this really is an afternoon of nostalgic bliss. The show is filled with spectacular costumes and packed with songs guaranteed to having you singing along from start to finish. Your spirits will be lifted as we all join together Bringing Back The Good Times.
