- Darren Saves the Day
- THE BRAND NEW PRODUCTION of the critically acclaimed musical 'Summer Holiday' has extended its current UK tour. Due to film commitments Stefan Booth will not be continuing in the role of Don. The producers are delighted to announce that Darren Day, who originally created the part for the stage will join the company for the show's extension from Monday 18th August at Liverpool Empire Theatre.
This much-loved British classic comedy features all-time greats such as Summer Holiday, Bachelor Boy, Livin' Doll, The Young Ones, Do You Wanna Dance, In the Country, Dancing Shoes, Move It and many more.
A group of London Transport bus mechanics set out on a frantic bus-ride of a lifetime through France, Switzerland, Italy and Greece. They're joined by pop starlet 'Bobby' (Suzanne Shaw) who, disguised as a boy, has run away from her showbiz lifestyle. Chased by her domineering mother, (Aimi MacDonald) and her agent (Christopher Biggins) Bobby hitches a ride with the unknowing gang of holidaymakers on their double-decker London bus. Romance blossoms when Bobby reveals her true identity and falls for her bachelor boy, Don (Darren Day).
Summer Holiday is directed by Michael Gyngell and Mark Haddigan, with Choreography by the Tony Award winning Gillian Gregory.
