Oh what a night this will be

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON STAGE -

take part in a ven­ture that would put a smile on peo­ple’s faces.

“I had the idea of cre­at­ing an event that would cap­ture the fun and pure joy we see in tod­dlers and young chil­dren but for a slightly older au­di­ence.

“Peo­ple have seen ‘Wipe­out’, ‘It’s A Knock­out’ and some of the other ob­sta­cle races on TV; well this cap­tures the essence of that.

“Make no mis­take; it’s still a 5k but not as you know it. I’m ex­cited to host these events and give the ob­sta­cles a go my­self.”

Naomi Joyce, Mar­ket­ing Man­ager for Royal Wind­sor Race­course, added: “We are su­per ex­cited to be host­ing this event, it looks pretty crazy but great fun. Chil­dren have so much fun at ‘soft play’ cen­tres and it will be in­ter­est­ing to see how well adults get on.” THE in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed stage sen­sa­tion, Jersey Boys is tour­ing the UK and Ire­land for the very first time.

This smash hit mu­si­cal has won 55 ma­jor awards world­wide, in­clud­ing the Olivier Award for Best New Mu­si­cal.

The show will be stop­ping off at Ayles­bury Water­side Theatre for al­most two weeks from Tues­day, Septem­ber 22 to Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 3.

Jersey Boys tells the true life story of four boys from the wrong side of the tracks who wrote their own songs, in­vented their own unique sound, and sold 175 mil­lion records world­wide.

Fea­tur­ing hit af­ter leg­endary hit in­clud­ing Beg­gin’, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Oh What a Night, Sherry, Walk Like a Man, Bye Bye Baby, Big Girls Don’t Cry and many more, Jersey Boys is a story full of heart, hu­mour and ‘sheer mu­si­cal razzmatazz’ you sim­ply will never for­get.

May be in­ap­pro­pri­ate for ages 12 and un­der due to strong au­then­tic New Jersey lan­guage.

Nigel Havers, Martin Jarvis, Sian Phillips, Chris­tine Ka­vanagh, Ros­alind Ayres, Car­men du Sau­toy and David Shaw-Parker – all hugely ex­pe­ri­enced and tal­ented ac­tors – but aren't they all a lit­tle, umm… old for the parts? Yes, and that's the point. This is The Im­por­tance of Be­ing Earnest as you've never seen it be­fore.

Per­formed by The Bun­buryCom­pany of Play­ers – for the umpteenth time – it has all of Wilde's sub­limely funny di­a­logue with a re­ally en­ter­tain­ing twist to the plot.

This West End pro­duc­tion, dubbed by Wilde ‘a triv­ial com­edy for se­ri­ous peo­ple',is en­tirely faith­ful to the script – with a few in­trigu­ing ad­di­tions from lead­ing thriller writer and comic nov­el­ist Si­mon Brett.

Di­rected by Lucy Bai­ley, whose cred­its in­clude di­rect­ing ma­jor plays at both the RSC and Na­tional Theatre, and de­signed by Olivier Award win­ner, Wil­liam Dud­ley, the pro­duc­tion was warmly re­ceived in the West End last year and now launches the new au­tumn sea­son at Milton Keynes Theatre.

Nigel Havers said: “This pro­duc­tion is very close to my heart and we had a ball do­ing it in the West End last sum­mer.

“I'm thrilled we get to do it all again and hope au­di­ences in Milton Keynes will laugh and en­joy watch­ing our twist on Os­car's bril­liant play as much as we en­joy per­form­ing it.” They'll cer­tainly be talk­ing about it. And, as Os­car Wilde said: “There is
