WE'LL MEET AGAIN
by Tessa Coleman
Following the highly successful run of her “Sentimental Journey" two years ago which played to sell-out audiences, the JADC has asked Tessa Coleman to devise a new show around the music and dancing of World War Two.
The show touches many moods just as the songs did . Alternately upbeat and optimistic, humorous, sentimental, nostalgic and moving. All the great numbers like “Well meet again” “White Cliffs of Dover” “Lili Marlene” “Underneath the Arches” “There’ll Always be an England” and “Bless 'em all” are there but so too is the wonderful big band music of “In the Mood”, “Chatanooga Choo choo”, “sing sing sing”, “Tuxedo Junction” and “Frenesi” as well as many Hollywood hits of the time including, “Don’t sit under the Apple Tree”, “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Baby it’s cold outside” “Swinging on a star” “A nightingale sang in Berkley Square, “I’ll be seeing you” “How about you” “Begin the Beguine” “Taking a chance on Love” and many, many more.
The cast of 30 is led by Mark Labey, Sheila Harris, Terry Arthur, Jessica Perchard, Ben Talbot and Tessa Coleman.
There are 40 musical gems to delight in plus the spectacular choreography of Agnetta Pinel and Rachel Anne Jones to enjoy, be it jitterbug, ballroom, Latin or tap. Come along, join in the singing if you like, merely sit back nostalgically, or maybe learn afresh about these morale boosting songs, that helped to win the Second World War.
