Crooners @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Aug 25 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Crooners @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre | England | United Kingdom

Fans of the Rat Pack and the music of the American Song Book are being offered a very British alternative for 2017.

Crooners is a brand new comedy musical that puts a quintessential British twist to a genre symbolized by the Crooner and exemplified by the music of the Rat Pack and the American Song Book.

This comedy musical is a collaboration between comedy writer and performer, Roman Marek, and one of the UK’s most prolific modern swing bands, The Mini Big Band, and features music of the greatest Crooners of all time; Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr as well as Tony Bennet, Bobby Darin and Britain’s very own crooner, Matt Monro, with a brand new comedy script that has had audiences smiling from ear to ear.

‘We love the music of the Rat Pack and the great crooners and wanted to combine that with our love of the British variety comedy show’ says script writer Roman Marek. ‘We wanted a show that makes British audiences laugh out loud. An all singing, all dancing musical comedy the likes of Morcombe and Wise.’

Crooners follows the story of three very British gentlemen who, by their very nature, exhume the characteristics of a crooner; suave, self-assured, stylish. But, by the very same nature, it is not always obvious that these characteristics adopt quite so well by the quintessentially British. Cue a splendiferous injection of British comedy. Tongue firmly in cheek.

‘What excites us about this show is that we are not limited to music like a Rat Pack tribute’ adds Musical Director, Chris Hibbard. ‘The show has songs famed by Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole and Matt Monro. All the greats.’

The show includes the fully live on stage musicianship of the 10-piece modern swing band The Mini Big Band. The is going to be a swingin’ affair.

He’s back! It’s been a busy few years for Jason Manford since his last smash-hit stand up show but fans of his Absolute Radio show will know this nationally acclaimed comedian hasn’t changed a bit. Muddle Class promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up ‘working class’ then finding, over the years, that part of him has become ‘middle class’ – causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed.

Jason said: “Somebody said to me on my Facebook fan page, ‘it’s been ages since you’ve toured’. I thought ‘no way, it was last year wasn’t it? Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago! I just got fooled cos I’ve been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day! So I’ve been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it’s changed over the years, how the world has changed and how my parents haven’t changed a bit! It’s going to be a great tour and I can’t wait to see you there.”

8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), The Nightly Show (ITV1), Sunday Night at the Palladium (ITV1), Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News For You, (BBC One), QI (BBC Two) and The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic.
