THE sun is out thanks to the Stevenage Lytton players, who are bringing Summer Holiday to the Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage.

Based on the 1963 classic film starring Cliff Richard and the Shadows, this musical will take audiences on a singing adventure aboard a big red London bus.

Full of 60s hits, including Living Doll, Bachelor Boy, Do You Wanna Dance and, of course, Summer Holiday, this production will have you toe-tapping and singing along to these all-time favourites.

Michelle Airey, aged just 17 from Stevenage, plays Barbara, the girl who runs away from her theatrical mother who wants her daughter to be a singing star.

She joins the big red bus disguised as a boy and their adventure together begins.

This show runs at the Gordon Craig from next Wednesday, May 24, until Saturday, May 27, at 7.45pm and tickets cost £10 and £13.

o ALSO at the Gordon Craig is the ABBA tribute Voulez Vous on Sunday, May 21.

Voulez Vous is a colourful performance, depicting 30 years of one of the world's most popular and influential bands.

The show features narration and a multi-screen projection telling the story of Abba, from the beginning and Waterloo, right up to their eventual split.

Tickets cost £16.50 and the show kicks off at 7.45pm.

For more information and tickets to either of these events call the box office on 08700 131 030 or visit www.gordon-craig.co.uk
