In the style of the Leeds Music Hall, The Palace, the King George and several other well-known London pubs, the Piccadilly Olde Time Music Hall is coming to Sunshine Morning Melodies at The Events Centre on Wednesday October 8.
The Theatres Act of 1843 changed the theatre experience, prohibited eating, drinking and smoking during the performance, yet allowed all three at a musical show. This act encouraged the growth of a new kind of theatre, the Music Hall.
By 1868 there were 28 music halls in London and 300 in the rest of the country, and it quickly became the best-loved of entertainments. The Piccadilly Olde Time Music Hall is all about a return to the music hall entertainment of the 1800's.
The show uses a Master of Ceremonies (with gavel and much audience interaction) to introduce the "turns"… telling jokes and keeping the show moving. There are solo items, duets and company numbers, as well as audience sing-alongs. Hear songs about big men dominated by small wives, patriotism and young ladies in delicate conditions, babies disappearing down plugholes and fairies when they're 40!
So… for all those who loved the Leeds Music Hall, the Empire, The Hippodrome… the unforgettable talents of Marie Lloyd, Florrie Forde, George Robey and Harry Champion… and later Vesta Tilley, Lupino Lane and Gracie Fields and an early Charlie Chaplin… this show returns to the very roots of theatre.
The show contains a healthy dose of comedy, dance numbers and fabulous costumes - and features a brilliant piano accompanist/singer.
