"There are many tribute shows portraying particular bands, but with Those Were The Days we have created a broader celebration of the range of entertainment that the 50s and 60s offered”, said Andy, who has performed all over the
world, including fifteen years touring as part of the legendary Ken Dodd Show. Leiston Film Theatre manager, Wayne

Lonnie Donegan was such an inspirational catalyst in the music scene and to have his son on our stage really is the icing on the cake," he said.
The show also stars singer Maggie O’Hara, comedy instrumentalist Pete Lindup, and live music from the David Carter Band. Those Were The Days appears

Nathan’s fiancé Adelaide (Katie-May Gooderham) is the lead singer in an off-Broadway club where she laments her 14 year engagement. A well- heeled gambler Sky Masterson (Michael Blackman) is only interested in finding the next big game with
wherever it might be, until he meets Sarah Brown (Beth Keyes-Holloway), the serious Sergeant of the local Mission
who’s trying to convert the lost souls of Broadway to God. So we’re all set-up for a wonderful array of musical and dance numbers around a catalogue of mistakes and near-misses that cannot and do not fail to entertain. With wonderful songs like ‘Luck Be a Lady’, ‘Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat’ and ‘Guys and Dolls’ that will warm the coldest hearts and lift the lowest spirits.
