The Story
It was 1963. The year Beatlemania was born, the Profumo affair scandalised Britain and preceded the resignation of Harold Macmillan, Ronnie Biggs, Buster Edwards and co. snatched £2.6m cash from the London to Glasgow mail train……..and Cliff Richard and the Shadows took off across Europe in a London bus in the film 'Summer Holiday'.

In this feel good stage version of the film Don and his fellow London Transport bus mechanics journeying through Paris, the Alps, Italy and then Greece, along the way picking up three young girls in a clapped-out Morris Minor and a young American pop singer on the run from her domineering mother, and all to the strains of a hit-filled score featuring "In the Country", "Summer Holiday", "I Could Easily Fall in Love with You", "Bachelor Boy", "Move It", "Living Doll", "The Young Ones" and "On the Beach". A real taste of sixties nostalgia with a score our audiences will already know and love!
