Revues have always been popular with the Little Gaddesden audience and this production will reprise and refresh some of the popular items from earlier revues alongside new material, including some iconic sketches and songs. A cast of over twenty will deliver 25 different items that provide an opportunity for our actors to perform to their strengths.
The Revue has been compiled by Patrick Isherwood who is also directing with valuable help from Georgia McCarthy and our musical director Jackie Robinson. Among the world premiere items is a lilting samba The Girl From Houghton Regis, which may sound familiar if you are a fan of Astrud Gilberto and the appearance of such celebrated popular singers as Kate Brush and the Rolling Stones’ front man Mick Judder. Older members of our audience will be interested in seeing what has happened in adulthood to a childhood hero Andy Pandy and his pals Looby Loo and Teddy, while anybody who is interested in Russian composers will be in for a treat. Finally, we will take the opportunity of paying tribute to Patsy Blackmore, a founder member of LGDC and the instigator and director of many of our previous revues.
The REVUE 20/20 will be performed on Friday 24th/Saturday 25th January 2020 and Friday 31st January/Saturday 1 February 2020 at 8:00pm. Doors and licensed bar open from 7:15pm

‘WIXIT!’ by Trisha Wood, performed by members of Little Gaddesden Drama Club
WIXIT! is the sixth play in the Extraordinary Women series of short radio plays written by Trisha Wood. In it the ladies of Great Titley Women’s Institute bow to pressure from one of their members and decide to hold a referendum on whether to leave the National organization. To the committee’s surprise there is a yes vote (52-48%) which leaves them with some uncomfortable choices.
For those of you who are not familiar with the earlier plays, you can find them here and for a little more information on the formidable characters that make up the committee of this local WI click here.
