    Content

    Feuding guests to talent contestants, this show has a huge number of roles including lots of parts for females. Because the musical is all set within the Holiday Camp, scene changes are kept to a minimum (we like to think the cast are somewhat more exciting to look at!), so you can concentrate on costumes and perfecting the thumping songs written just for this show.

    Fifties fun!
