Get ready for a party as the nation’s favourite variety show, the legendary That’ll Be The Day’ returns to The PLAYHOUSE Whitley Bay, after incredible demand for the June 5th performance. This anniversary special, is sure to blow your socks off!
That’ll Be The Day is all about nostalgia and live entertainment, 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. As Trevor Payne commented “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”
