Rum and Rock n Roll will take us to the world of music, during war times with pre and post war music! A live band will accompany the cast of 15 performers all throughout the show.
Starting from the Andrews Sisters to Vera Lynn and more. During the first half of the show, one can see and listen to ex military war individuals telling us their experiences and how it felt to survive back in those days. Singing, live music and movement will be incorporated into acts and stories. Songs such as Boogie Woogle Bugle Boy, Lilli Marlene, Will Meet again and other classics will make the audience singalong.
“This is a war to end all wars.” In the second part of the show we will take our audience into the post war music era when rock n roll took over. The stage will change into fun and upbeat songs. Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Connie Francis and other legends will live on through music and dance. The second part will be colourful and joyful. This will show a comparison between both acts and how music mattered during and after war times.
Make sure you dress up in your best costume or uniform!
