LADS presents
Salad Days

Written by Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds in 1954 as a summer musical for the Theatre Royal Bristol: it transferred to the West End, running for 2283 performances to become the longest-running musical theatre show of its day.

Jane and Timothy meet in a park after their graduation to plan their lives.  They agree to get married secretly and decide that Timothy must take the first job that he is offered.  A passing tramp offers them £7 a week to look after his mobile piano for a month and they discover that it gives everyone within earshot an irresistible desire to dance.

Timothy’s parents, however, want him to find a proper job with one of his influential uncles, and Jane’s mother wants her to marry a wealthy Lord!  Infused with post-war optimism and filled with foot-tapping, catchy musical numbers - Oh, Look at Me, Out of Breath and It’s Easy to Sing, Salad Days is a charming, happy musical that will guarantee that you come out smiling.

Tickets £12 (Students - £6)
