Join the Crooners for a ruddy good time
After the success of the Crooners performance last year, they are back in Buxton with another comedy musical that puts a definite British twist to the music of the Rat Pack and the American Song Book.
This comedy musical is a collaboration between comedy writer and performer, Roman Marek, and one of the UK’s most prolific modern swing bands, The Mini Big Band, and features music of the greatest Crooners of all time; Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr as well as Tony Bennet, Bobby Darin and Britain’s very own crooner, Matt Monro, with a brand new comedy script that has had audiences smiling from ear to ear.
“We love the music of the Rat Pack and the great crooners and wanted to combine that with our love of the British variety comedy show,” says scriptwriter Roman Marek. “we wanted a show that makes British audiences laugh out loud. An all singing, all dancing musical comedy the likes of Morecambe and Wise”.
Crooners follows the story of three very British gentlemen who, by their very nature, exhume the characteristics of a crooner; suave, self-assured, stylish. However, it is not always obvious that these characteristics are adopted quite so well by the quintessentially British. Cue an injection of British comedy. Tongue firmly in cheek.
The show includes the fully live on stage musicianship of the 10-piece modern swing band The Mini Big Band. Join the splendiferous Crooners for what promises to be a swingin’ affair.
Crooners are here Sunday 26th August at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £23. Discounts are not available. To buy tickets contact Buxton Opera House Box Office, Tel: 01298 72190 or visit: www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.
