You will L-O-V-E the Unforgettable sounds of our incredible singers and band, so get ready to Face the Music & Dance and read more on this stunning new show…
Take four of our finest Theatre Company vocalists, add our sensational live Big Band on stage and recreate some of the finest songs of the past 80 years and you know you’re in for a sensational night of musical memories. From the golden era of the Rat Pack right up to today’s new generation of crooners, the show is packed with timeless songs and modern interpretations of them.
Our incredible vocalists Roxy Yarnold, Chloe Hunt, Sion Hathway and Fraser Callaghan will perform (swing) classics like Moondance, Mack the Knife, That’s Life, Ol’ Devil Called Love and many more live on stage. The set list of over 20 songs includes classics from Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé, Billie Holiday, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald and more.
Nicky Hathway said: “There’s nothing like the sounds of a Big Band performing live and this show is packed full of glamour and glitz, sparkles and sequins, and includes all my personal favourites, so it has been a real pleasure putting it together. It really showcases what incredible talent we have here at Potters with Chloe, Sion, Fraser and Roxy taking centre stage and performing live with our band. As well as classic versions of songs dating back to the 1930’s, it’s been a delight to feature some modern versions which have been given an inspirational makeover by the likes of Robbie Williams and Michael Buble.”
Puttin’ on the Glitz features on Midweek breaks between now and the 17th March and will return from 22nd September on Midweek breaks.
Bringing the popular music sounds of the wartime era that kept Britain smiling to the Atlas Theatre, along with some 40s style glamour, the Harmony Belles is a new show before the main show, running on select breaks throughout 2020.
Three of our Potters Theatre Company vocalists, including Michelle Batt, feature in the feel good show. It is proving popular with audiences, who have been singing along to Michelle when she belts out Dame Vera Lynn’s classic anthem, White Cliffs of Dover.
Get ready to Sway and get In the Mood with this show, which keeps the wartime spirit alive.
Nicky Hathway says: “The sounds of the Puppini Sisters and the D-Day Darlings are really popular. I remember when I first came to Potters as a guest, hearing an Andrew Sisters medley performed by the show team, which my sister and I would try to recreate when we got home, so I just had to include some of their songs. With this being our 100th year at Potters, it feels like the perfect time to put together our own show celebrating vintage classics like these. Laura has done an amazing job creating beautiful harmonies and the girls sound fantastic. It’s been a real pleasure seeing our guests join in on our nostalgic journey through these vintage classics.”
