Music Hall is alive and well and proudly returns to glorious WILTON'S MUSIC HALL for a spectacular evening’s entertainment capturing the true Victorian style of this much-loved form of entertainment.
Two glorious hours of song, dance, magic and laughter await the pleasure of your company. A nostalgic, fun, unmissable trip down memory lane, colourful, superbly staged and costumed and full of audience participation presented by a galaxy of stars from London’s famous Players Theatre and BBC TV’S ‘THE GOOD OLD DAYS’ recently re-run on BBC 4 TV. This extravaganza from days gone by will be produced and directed by Jan Hunt, a stalwart of The Players, The Good Old Days and ex-presenter of the BBC TV Children’s show CRACKERJACK.
Currently The Players Theatre with their 'august' line up of talented performers flying the flag for traditional Music Hall shows, perform across the West End, UK, Europe, The USA and Canada and are now proud to be returning to Wilton’s’ beautifully accompanied on the ivories by the dapper and debonair Wilton’s favourite. MR. TOM CARRADINE.
The Players Theatre Club was founded in 1929 but in 1936 it adopted the persona of Victorian Music Hall under Peter Ridgeway and Leonard Sachs. The Players soon became a theatrical institution and recognised as a showcase for future stars such as Hattie Jacques, Sir Peter Ustinov, Clive Dunn, Ian Carmichael & Maggie Smith.
The Players now run workshops and present The New Faces Music Hall specials once again providing a showcase for the future stars of tomorrow.
