THE LIFE OF AMER­ICA’S FAVOURITE BIG BAND MAN

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON STAGE -

GLENN Miller fans will not want to miss a new show com­ing to Bucks next month.

The Glenn Miller Story will be per­formed at Ayles­bury Wa­ter­side The­atre from Tues­day, Jan­uary 19 to Satur­day, Jan­uary 23. It has been 70 years since Glenn Miller van­ished over the English Chan­nel as he flew to Paris to en­ter­tain the troops dur­ing the Sec­ond World War. Did he crash? Was he shot down? Will the mystery ever be solved?

Brought to the stage in a brand new mu­si­cal spec­tac­u­lar, is the life, fame and van­ish­ing of Amer­ica’s most fa­mous big band leader. Mu­sic leg­end Tommy Steele, Bri­tain’s first rock ‘n’ roll icon who be­came our great­est ever song and dance man, com­mands the stage as only a very great star can in this ex­tra­or­di­nary tale of the world’s most fa­mous big band leader, fea­tur­ing a spec­tac­u­lar 16 piece orchestra plus sen­sa­tional per­form­ers and daz­zling chore­og­ra­phy.

Tommy’s leg­endary ca­reer boasts count­less hit sin­gles, Hol­ly­wood movies and award-win­ning stage mu­si­cals such as Half a Six­pence, Hans Chris­tian An­der­sen and Sin­gin’ in the Rain at the Lon­don Pal­la­dium, where he was re­cently hon­oured with a pres­ti­gious plaque cel­e­brat­ing the fact that he re­mains the the­atre’s most suc­cess­ful ever star.
