The Players' Theatre
& Wilton's Music Hall Present
A Wondrous Music Hall Night
We have invited the world famous Players' Theatre
, one of the last surviving music hall companies, to close the British Music Hall Society's 50th Birthday party celebrations.
The Players’ Theatre Club have been recreating Victorian music hall for 75 years. Produced by Jan Hunt, spiritual grand-daughter of East End girl-turned-superstar Marie Lloyd, this show will feature songs, comedy, magic and that special staple of music hall - the audience sing-along.
Music hall developed as a form of popular entertainment in Britain in the 19th century. A mixture of songs, comedy, and speciality acts such as conjuring; it entertained patrons who were busy drinking and smoking the length and breadth of the country. Song sheets will be provided!.
"Anyone who enjoys a modern day alt-cabaret extravaganza such as La Cirque should be glad of the chance to see how the earlier generation laid down the conventions”
"A joyful outing to a forgotten era for fans of the genre”
"This is cutting edge Victoriana… rich in the eccentricities beloved by the British and their visitors”
