Show cel­e­brates hits of Si­mon and Gar­funkel

Oldham Advertiser - - GALLERY OLDHAM -

CEL­E­BRAT­ING 50 years since they recorded their first num­ber one hit sin­gle, The Sound of Si­lence, a mu­si­cal per­for­mance will tell the story of Si­mon and Gar­funkel at Old­ham Coli­seum.

Set to hit the West End in Fe­bru­ary 2015, The Si­mon and Gar­funkel Story cel­e­brates the lives and ca­reer of the folk/rock duo.

It fea­tures West End, award-win­ning lead­ing man Dean El­liot (Buddy Holly in Buddy - The Mu­si­cal) and a full cast of tal­ented ac­tor-mu­si­cians.

It takes au­di­ences back through the groovy times of the 1960s, telling the story of Paul Si­mon and Art Gar­funkel, from their hum­ble begin­nings as rock and roll duo Tom and Jerry, through to their mas­sive suc­cess, dra­matic break-up and fin­ish­ing with a stun­ning recre­ation of the 1981 Cen­tral Park ref­or­ma­tion con­cert.

Us­ing a huge pro­jec­tion screen, the show fea­tures orig­i­nal pho­tos and film footage while a full live band per­forms their hits in­clud­ing Mrs Robin­son, Ce­cilia, Bridge Over Trou­bled Wa­ter, Home­ward Bound and of course The Sound of Si­lence.

The show will be on at Old­ham Coli­seum The­atre, Fair­bot­tom Street, Old­ham, at 7.30pm on Oc­to­ber 4.

Tick­ets £17. Call 0161 624 2829 or visit www. coli­seum.org.uk.
