Book and Lyrics by Dorothy Reynolds and Julian Slade
Lyrics by Julian Slade
Having charmed audiences around the world with their award-winning Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S. Pinafore and The Mikado, Regan De Wynter Williams returns with one of Britain's best loved and sunniest musicals with TV and West End star Wendi Peters (Coronation Street, ITV; Hetty Feather, BBC; White Christmas, Dominion Theatre).
Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds' musical is an absolute romp of polite naughtiness and saucy encounters, with an energetic and peppy score featuring songs such as We Said We Wouldn't Look Back, Look At Me, I'm Dancing and We're Looking For A Piano. It puts a smile on your face and a tap in your toes.
Written in 1952 as a summer musical for the Bristol Old Vic, Salad Days then transferred to the Vaudeville where it ran for 2,283 performances. Salad Days is a phrase first coined in Shakespeare's Anthony and Cleopatra, referring to Anthony's youth; the show tells the light-hearted 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.
