LADS presentsSalad Days
Written by Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds in 1954 as a ‘summer musical’ for the Bristol Old Vic, Salad Days transferred to the West End, running for 2283 performances, to become the longest-running show in musical theatre history.
Jane and Timothy meet in a park after their graduation to plan their lives. They agree to get married secretly, and decide that Timothy must take the first job that he is offered. A passing tramp offers them £7 a week to look after his mobile piano for a month and they discover that it gives everyone within earshot an irresistible desire to dance.
Timothy’s parents however want him to find a proper job with one of his influential uncles, and Jane’s mother wants her to meet a wealthy Lord. Filled with foot tapping, catchy, musical numbers – Oh, Look at Me, Out of Breath and It’s Easy to Sing, Salad Days is a charming, happy musical which will guarantee that you come out smiling.
