The Day The Music Died
9th March 2014, 7:30pm
55 years on from his death, we present a celebration of Buddy Holly’s music. From the early songs such as 'Blue Days, Black Nights' and 'Rock around with Ollie Vee' to 'True love Ways’.
This show proves that the music did not indeed die but lives on and is as vibrant and relevant as ever.
Heart and Soul - The Musical
Set in the Liverpool, before the fast track routes of ‘The Voice’ and ‘The X Factor’ changed the music industry, Heart and Soul is an insight into the highs and lows of trying to ‘make it’ and how constant rejection creates self doubt, leading to disastrous consequences. Heart and Soul explores themes of unrequited love, unfulfilled ambitions, true friendship and the tenderness and love between Mother and Daughter.
It’s Liverpool in the mid 90’s and Cathy Mason, a gifted singer/songwriter, receives another rejection letter from a record company. Cathy begins to accept that she may have to perform at dingy pubs and clubs forever until her life is turned upside down when she becomes entangled in a love triangle between the Memphis Record Producer, Red Carson and childhood friend Michael Carlucci as deceit and betrayal threaten to shatter her dreams.
A talented local cast including Charlie Griffiths (If the shoe fits, Ciggie Run and vocalist with Killa Sista), Claire Simmo (Radio City 96.7 presenter). Vicky Jones (BBC’s One and Only, Kylie Minogue), the hilarious Simon Foster once again playing the role of ‘Slimy Sid’ with Jay Davies reprising his successful role as ‘Red Carson’, completing the cast are Ria Cheri, who takes on the role of , 'Cathy Mason' and Simon Higgs playing 'Michael Carlucci'.
This inspirational production is packed with original songs, spanning the genres from motown to rock, dance, ballads and jazz. Entirely written, arranged and played by the show’s producers, Liverpool duo Maria Cavanagh and Indra Nathaniel of Applet Music Productions. Heart and Soul will leave you emotionally drained and excited, with lots of laughter, a few tears and a guarantee that you will be singing the songs for days after.

To call Nick a superlative singer/songwriter could put his highly lauded guitar talent in the shade, and to call him a guitarist’s guitar might slight his distinctive, soulful voice and passionate songs. Not forgetting the wild ride that is one of his live shows – from personal introspection to biting political satire via a charmingly caustic wit. Nick Harper dazzles audiences and reviewers alike with his heady mix of virtuosity, boyish charm, showmanship and sheer bravado.
‘Harper has so much musicianship in him that it just leaks out all over the place.’ The Times

The Good Book Just Got Better!
Yes, it’s an affectionate, irreverent roller coaster ride from fig leaves to Final Judgment as the boys tackle the great theological questions: Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic” spelled the way it sounds?
