Following a record breaking West End season at the Garrick Theatre where it was nominated for Best New West End Musical 2010 by What’s On Stage, TV’s newest Eastender star, David Essex, stars in his own musical set in a world of an authentic East End funfair to The Regent Theatre.
Legendary singer, actor, composer and lyricist David Essex with Boogie Nights creator Jon Conway invite you to their rollercoaster ride of a musical, underscored by a helter-skelter of David Essex hit’s such Winter’s Tale, Hold Me Close, Gonna Make You A Star, Me And My Girl – Nightclubbing, Silver Dream Machine and Rock On with many new compositions written specially for the show.
Inspired by David’s album All The Fun Of The Fair, the original storyline is a heart-warming tale about an East End fairground family with David playing fun fair owner ‘Levi Lee’, recently widowed and father of a rebellious teenage son ‘Jack’. Dodgems and motorbikes, crafty cons and candy floss, fairground horses and fights, along with romance and rock and roll mean you’re sure to go on a rollercoaster of a ride, but beware…all is no always fun at the fair!
ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR runs at The Regent Theatre from Tuesday 1 – Saturday 5 November for one week only. Tickets can be purchased from the Box Office on 0844 871 7649 or online at www.atgtickets.com/stoke.
