Salad Days

2nd October 2018 - 6th October 2018

Salad Days
starring Wendi Peters

Following rave reviews and sell outs in London and Bath, Regan De Wynter WIlliams are proud to present one of Britain’s best-loved and sunniest musicals.  Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds’ award winning show is an absolute romp of polite naughtiness and saucy encounters, with an energetic and peppy score featuring songs such as ‘We Said We Wouldn’t Look Back’, ‘Look At Me, I’m Dancing’, and ‘We’re Looking For A Piano’.

★★★ “Enchanting.” Evening Standard

★★★ “Pitch-perfect.” Daily Mail

★★★★ “A masterful production… Spectacular.” British Theatre

★★★★ “It’s a show that famously inspired a seven-year-old Cameron Mackintosh to fall in love with the theatre, and this production made me realise why that might be.” The Stage

★★★★ “If I could see one play every evening for the next 12 months, it would be this one. Enjoy one of the most enjoyable shows ever written. Wonderful, simple and touching.” Broadway World

Event Reviews

  • Choice Radio Worcester

    First performed back in 1954 (and rarely off the stage since then), Salad Days is a whimsical and somewhat nonsensical musical which apparently also happens to be one of the Queen’s favourites.

    Written by Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds, this new version is brought to the stage by Regan De Wynter who are probably best known for their impressive tours of all-male versions of Gilbert & Sullivan classic operettas. For those who have enjoyed those shows, the bar is therefore already set very high for this one…

    This musical, like many fantasy ones, is completely off the wall – two young graduates leaving college, fed up of their futures being determined by their families, decide to wed for convenience sake and then are handed a job by a tramp for a month looking after a piano. Nothing strange there then! But this is no ordinary piano – anyone hearing it play from the very first note is obliged to dance (well, move their body around in a very uncoordinated fashion at least) and sing. But the piano disappears after attempts by the Minister of Pleasure and Pastime to ban it's disruptive music and it is only after the appearance of a flying saucer(!) that the couple can look forward to the future (a contraption which incidentally allows the most groan-worthy line in a musical when the lady Electrode claims to be the “saucer’s apprentice”...)

    There’s no doubt that this is a very accomplished production of this upbeat and peppy musical with the whole cast in fine voice, Corrie’s Wendi Peters playing two roles (Lady Raeburn and Aunt Prue) and Mark Anderson and Jessica Croll as the young couple, backed up by a large cast and a trio on stage providing the musical accompaniment.

    The unadulterated joy which relentlessly runs through the show and the songs (as is implied by the very title itself) no doubt epitomises a certain era of naivety and hope in post-war Britain as audiences began to enjoy themselves again. The fact that it is still being produced and playing to large audiences probably tells us something about today's society too.

    Not sure what Cilla Battersby-Brown would make of it all though!
