    Featuring The Bluejays

    Award-winning band The Bluejays (featuring stars of Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story, Dreamboats & Petticoats and Million Dollar Quartet) take you on a jiving journey through the fabulous fifties. Packed with over 40 classic hits including Rock Around The Clock, That’ll Be The Day, Jailhouse Rock, Johnny B. Goode, Tutti Frutti, C’mon Everybody, Stupid Cupid, Great Balls of Fire and La Bamba, all performed live on stage, Rock and Roll Revolution will transport you back to the era when music changed the world forever!

    From the early days of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis at Sun Studio, via the brief but brilliant careers of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and Eddie Cochran, right through to Rock ‘n’ Roll’s heyday with artists such as Cliff Richard, Connie Francis, Bill Haley and his Comets, Dion and the Belmonts and Little Richard – Rock and Roll Revolution is a whistle-stop tour through music’s most defining decade!

    As the UK’s first purpose-built repertory theatre, The Old Rep occupies a unique place in theatre history. This iconic theatre, built by Sir Barry Jackson, played a central role in the early careers of many of the UK’s most celebrated actors and theatre makers.

    Due to the age of the building, the tour will include climbing a number of stairs and so is not suitable for those with impaired mobility.

    16 November 2019 All Day

    Join us this November and December as we bring Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale The Snow Queen to The Old Rep stage.

With the help of an unlikely band of companions, Gerda travels to the Kingdom of Ice to confront the Snow Queen and rescue her friend.

    From the creative team behind last year’s Pinocchio, comes a seasonal adventure for the entire family.
