IT’S LIVERPOOL’S TIME AGAIN!
WKLOS return to the Floral Pavilion with the critically acclaimed 'Once Upon A Time At The Adelphi. Hailed as 'the best musical to come from Liverpool since Blood Brothers', this toe tapping family musical was originally commissioned to commemorate the 2008 Liverpool Capital of Culture year, and played to packed houses for an extended run at Liverpool's Playhouse Theatre. Ten tears on, WKLOS are delighted to be bringing the show across the Mersey to New Brighton's Floral Pavilion.
On a busy day of hen parties and difficult customers, Jo, an ambitious young manager torn between her career and her new romance, is alerted to the presence of a stray guest on the Adelphi roof. Silhouetted against the skyline she finds the mysterious Alice, who used to meet her long-lost lover Thompson on that very spot decades before. Through Alice’s vibrant and poignant reminiscences Jo is transported back to the 1930s when the glitz and glamour would pour off the luxury liners for their first taste of England, a night in the city’s most fashionable hotel, mingling with both aristocratic guests and hotel employees. Fate, Hollywood, World War II and a dizzying array of staff and guests all intervene in an epic Liverpool love story spanning 70 years.
With a toe-tapping score and a host of exuberant characters this romantic musical journey is a joyful celebration of one of Britain’s most renowned and iconic hotels. A decade on from Liverpool’s 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations this is your opportunity to re-live the magic of this wonderfully entertaining, vibrant and colourful musical for the whole family.
*Includes a £1.50 per ticket fee. Fees capped at the first 8 tickets. No fees to Friends of the Floral.
