The Express What’s On Stage
Bigger and better than ever, That’ll Be the Day is a five star, family friendly performance that has captured the hearts of audiences across the nation for almost three decades. A goodie bag of greatest hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s, this much-loved show features mesmerising drum solos, fantastic costumes and unforgettable duets.
That’ll Be The Dayis all about nostalgia and liveentertainment, reflecting the music and tone of an era that changed the course of music history and youth culture forever.
The show was established on the cabaret circuit in the late 1980's and began playing regional theatres in the early 1990's. Having delighted audiences throughout the UK for over two decades, That’ll Be The Day is back on the road entertaining audiences with classic gold hits from the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s and more hilarious comedy!
Despite performing as many as 230 shows a year, to capacity audiences across the UK, Trevor Payne (who created the show in 1987) still directs, produces and stars in the production today. Trevor writes the material for the show, for each tour and over six months is taken in planning and preparation. This culminates in a month of intensive rehearsals before the show once again, takes to the road with its new offering every year.
That’ll Be The Day is also renowned for its work with worthy causes, particularly BT Childline, Help For Heroes and more recently Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK. Make-A-Wish® has a single purpose - to grant magical wishes to children and young people aged 3-17 fighting life-threatening conditions. Wishes can range from being a princess for the day, meeting a hero or going on a once in a life-time holiday. There are currently 20,000 children and young people in the UK fighting a life-threatening condition, and Make-A-Wish believes every one of them deserves to experience the magic of a Make-A-Wish wish. “We are truly delighted to be supporting Make-A-Wish. The tireless work they do with children across the UK is inspirational and we look forward to a long and fruitful association with this amazing charity”- Trevor Payne
