Happy Days are Here Again

11 June @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Last performing at the Shaftesbury in 2022 for her late Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, we are delighted to welcome them back again!

The spectacular show Happy Days is a patriotic, uplifting, feel-good show, full of well-known songs that will touch your heart and make you smile.

Happy Days Productions have created a show specifically to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings. Whilst this is a very poignant event and undoubtedly a turning point in the War, we also want to take you on a trip down memory lane through the 40s and the events of the decade.

You can ‘Meet The Gang’ as we take you back to the ENSA concert party days, with songs and fun from Arthur Askey, Gracie Fields and Flanagan and Allen to name a few. We cannot forget the contribution from the Americans and we will be crossing the pond for our American section to take you back to the sounds of the Andrews Sisters and Glen Miller with our fabulous dancers jumping and jiving!

The show includes a tribute to the late Dame Vera Lynn, the Nation’s Sweetheart, with songs including, ‘Lili Marlene’, ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’, ‘Yours’, ‘You’ll Never Know’ and of course, ‘The White
Cliffs of Dover’ and ‘We’ll Meet Again’. There is a good old fashioned knees up where you can singalong to ‘Roll Out the Barrel’, ‘Side by Side’, ‘Knees Up Mother Brown’ and ‘Lambeth Walk’ as we take you through to VE Day.

We are very proud to be associated with The Royal British Legion and we will of course pay a respectful tribute to our Fallen Heroes, honouring all our Armed Forces and creating poignant, but beautiful scenes using our
state of the art projection. The show is performed by eight Award Winning vocalists with incredible voices and amazing harmonies and our talented dancers with beautiful bespoke costumes. This feelgood show is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face.
