BIG band sounds to big comedy names can be seen and heard at Stratford ArtsHouse this spring.
Comedy is provided by the likes of Dylan Moran, star of Black Books and Shaun of the Dead, the deadpan Rich Hall, Simon Evans from Channel 4’s Stand up for the Week, and Virginia Ironside who presents Growing Old Disgracefully.
There is also the return of Black Country Night Out, and 69 Shades of Black, a new comedy starring Faye Tozer of Steps fame.
Music-wide, 80s popsters The Christians will be performing hits such as Forgotten Town, Ideal World, and Hooverville, while British folk rockers Steeleye Span will be performing material old and new.
The Syd Lawrence Orchestra will perform the big band classics from the swing era made famous by the likes of Glenn Miller, Quincy Jones, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to name but a few, and Ray Quinn will also be swinging into town.
For musical theatre fans the Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular Show will feature favourites such as Come Fly with Me, That’s Amore, and Mr Bojangles.
And a fusion of Romeo and Juliet and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring collide with classical music and physical theatre in Kiss of Death.
