Hip musical to recreate the swinging sixties

NINE twenty-somethings from Solihull Operatic Society - who have notched up over 100 years on stage between them -have joined together to stage A Slice of Saturday Night at Lyndon School's Hub from September 25 - 27.

NINE twenty-somethings from Solihull Operatic Society - who have notched up over 100 years on stage between them -have joined together to stage A Slice of Saturday Night at Lyndon School's Hub from September 25 - 27.

A humorous musical seen through the haze of the '60s, A Slice of Saturday Night has rarely been performed in the borough despite its high energy and fizzing humour.

It captures many of the teenage dramas we all go through now - no matter when we were seventeen.

The action takes place in the infamous Club a Go-Go, where seven teenagers are trying (desperately in some cases!) to win over the opposite sex and stay true to the teenage scene.

The production is a move away from Solihull Operatic Society's normal repertoire and features a small cast of twenty-somethings who have been involved with either the main society or its youth section SOSage Factory.

The cast and production team boast both a performing arts graduate and undergraduate, as well as a working choreographer.

The youngest cast member, Alex Hammond, recently took a starring role in SOSage Factory's NODA award-winning production of Les Miserables.

Take this rare chance to be transported back to the beginning of the teenage dream - 'where the hems were high and the fringes low' - book now!

Tickets are available from Solihull Arts Complex Box Office on 0121 704 6962 and are priced at £10.

The show runs from September 25 - 27 at Lyndon School's Hub, Daylesford Road, Solihull.
