Regan de Wynter Williams Productions has announced a new UK tour of Salad Days will open at the Theatre Royal Brighton on the 5th September.
Directed by Bryan Hodgson, Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds’ musical returns to the stage for a brand new UK tour starting this September, set to star Wendi Peters (Coronation Street, ITV; Hetty Feather, BBC; White Christmas, Dominion Theatre).
The show tells the lighthearted tale of recent graduates Timothy and Jane. Unhappy with their pushy parents, they decide to get jobs and take on the responsibility of looking after a piano in a park! Little are they prepared to deal with the magic and madness that follows.The musical includes songs such as ‘We Said We Wouldn’t Look Back’, ‘Look At Me, I’m Dancing’, and ‘We’re Looking For A Piano’
Director Bryan Hodgson said: “I am thrilled to be able to stage Salad Days again this autumn – it serves as one of the greatest romps in musical theatre history, and really brings us a timeless sense of enjoyment and nonsense, which is always welcome in counteracting the sometimes overwhelming seriousness of today. With the fabulous Wendi Peters joining the cast too, it will simply be a fun and delightful evening out, and I cannot wait to get the magic piano and spaceship ready for its latest trip around the charming British countryside!”
As well as Wendi Peters, this new uk touring production is set to star: Mark Anderson, Jessica Croll, James Gulliford , Francesca Pim, Megan Armstrong, Jon Osbaldeston, Jay Worthy, Maeve Byrne,Nathan Elwick, Lewis McBean, Callum Evans, Ashlee Young, Valerie Cutko, Dan Smith, Victoria Nicol and Bradley Judge.
