End of tour for popular musical

As That’ll be the Day comes to the end of its 26th year of touring, they play Worthing one last time with the current production on June 1 at 7.45pm.

Their summer show replaces it in August.

The show which was established on the cabaret circuit in the late 1980s began playing regional theatres in the early 1990s. It now plays around 230 shows a year across the UK.

The show was created in the summer of 1985 by Trevor Payne, who grew up in Worthing Each August he writes new comedy sketches and combines a new mix of 50s, 60s and 70s hits for performance from August to June as well as directing, producing and starring in the production.

The variety of songs spans Elvis’s Blue Suede Shoes, Billy Fury’s Halfway to Paradise, Sonny and Cher’s I Got You Babe, Fleetwood Mac’s Don’t Stop, The Contours’ Do You Love Me and many others in an ever-changing collection of nostalgic hits.

Interspersing the hits are comedy sketches including Trevor Payne’s Mick Jagger impressions and Gary Anderson’s ability to mimic more than 25 voices from Elvis and Willie Nelson to Tommy Cooper. The pair also combine their comic talents to create spoofs of great double-acts such as Laurel and Hardy, Bill and Ben, Batman and Robin and The Blues Brothers.
