  • Rock & roll show bringing classic hits to theatre

    Henry James

    AFTER three decades of touring, the Rock & Roll variety production That’ll Be The Day returns to Southport Theatre with another show.

    That’ll Be The Day is well-known for its ability to evoke nostalgia with live entertainment.

    Having delighted audiences throughout the UK for over three decades, the show is back on the road once again this year entertaining crowds of fans with classic hits from the 1950s, ‘60s & ‘70s plus more comedy!

    The show makes its regular August Bank Holiday weekend visit to Southport Theatre on Saturday, August 26 at 7.30pm.

    Originally established on the cabaret circuit in the late 1980s, the show began playing regional theatres in the early 1990s. Now it performs over 200 shows a year to capacity audiences across the UK. Trevor Payne (who first created the show back in 1986!) still directs, produces and stars in the production today.

    Trevor rewrites all the material for the show for each year, and over six months is taken in planning and preparation.

    Trevor said: “Complete with stunning costumes and incredible live music performances, That’ll Be The Day is the golden age of popular music…revived.”

    That’ll Be The Day are supporters of Make-A-Wish UK - the charity which grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.

    This year they’re celebrating 30 years of granting magical wishes - providing desperately ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition.

    Now entering its third year of collecting, That’ll Be The Day has raised more than £180,000 in donations from its audiences across the UK.

    Trevor added: “We are truly delighted to be supporting Make-A-Wish. The tireless work they do with children across the UK is inspirational and we look forward to a long and fruitful association with this amazing charity.”
