Due to the roaring success of last year’s show, we return to the auditorium for not one but TWO nights of nostalgia this year.
Do join our group of entertainers as they lead you in a sing-a-long of wartime classics. These evenings are always great fun with a tremendous community feel. It is wonderful to see so many people in 1940s dress as it truly adds to the atmosphere, but it is not compulsory.
Due to the incredible popularity of our sing-a-longs, please book promptly to avoid the risk of missing out on one of the highlights of the Little Theatre’s year.
