Take a trip back to the swinging 60s with ‘A Slice of Saturday Night’ on Thursday, January 21 at Stamford Corn Exchange.
A show that will take you spinning back to the eternal embarrassment of being a teenager - ‘A Slice of Saturday Night’ is a fabulous musical that will have you tapping your feet from your seat.
The show is being performed by a cast of ten, who are experienced performers, having stared a number of musicals including Spring Awakening, Flashdance and Little Women. The cast are all from the local area and are currently studying a degree level programme in the arts.
The story revolves around seven teenagers who dance, eye each other and flirt on a Saturday night at the popular ‘Club A Go Go’. Sue is going out with Gary, but he flirts with Penny and the other girls at every opportunity. Sharon and Rick like each other but are too shy to tell each other. Eddie is challenged by the boys to persuade ‘frigid’ Bridget to ‘touch his whatsit’ by closing time, over the course of the night he tries everything, with very little success. The owner of the club, ageing rocker Eric ‘Rubber-legs’ De Vene, watches and lends an ear to the young people as they navigate the rituals of teenage fashion, music, sexual mores and relationships.
