PLAYING more than 200 scintillating all-live performances every year since 1986, this massively popular rock ‘n’ roll variety show has to be the very best in the business.

Constantly re-written, refreshed, updated, and polished to perfection, this incredibly successful formula features hooky pop music from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, now updated into the 80s, 90s and beyond, blended with hilarious comedy routines, reinforced by compelling overhead projections.

Lighting, costumes, and choreography are superbly professional, the ten cast members (although with all the authentic wigs, they seem more than ten!) are astonishingly multi-talented, and the whole show is wonderfully entertaining.

Highlights of Act One featured forensically accurate tributes to The Hollies’ happy number one I’m Alive and the Four Seasons’ relentlessly hooky hit Let’s Hang On.

Act Two updates the show with fantastic acknowledgements to Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Dire Straits, Madonna, and an astonishing tribute to Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

Trevor Payne and Gary Anderson are a hilarious double act, Gary nailing Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, and Ken Dodd, Trevor delicious perfection in his tribute to Cliff Richard, and his now-famous/infamous Mick Jagger monologue, with effortless comic timing, holding an audience spellbound with cheeky narrative comedy, with never a hint of gratuitous obscenity.

This absolutely outstanding show (the best anti-depressant without a prescription!) runs until September 15 ... enjoy!

I’ve reviewed and enjoyed this show for many years, but this latest version exceeds previous standards in sheer professionalism and theatricality.
