The Piccadilly Olde English Pub Show


Devised and directed by
Presented by Top Hat Productions

The Piccadilly Olde English Pub Show is a show based on the 19th Century tavern and pub shows of old London – some of the first entertainment seen by both the gentry and ordinary folk – in places where eating, drinking and singing was part of everyday life!

The show features a cast of 3 males and 4 females, plus a live accompanist and percussionist, who will perform many of the wonderful songs that were popular at the time…songs which have survived to this day! Songs include Oom Pa Pa, Roll out the Barrel, The Pheasant Plucker, I Belong to Glasgow, We’ll Gather Lilacs, Lord it’s a laugh bein’ a Fairy, The Twiddly Bits, If I were not upon the Stage and more.

The show is in two halves of approximately one hour each with a 20 minute interval.

 The show is written and directed by KATE PETERS, well known to Gold Coast audiences for her musical revues – ISN’T IT ROMANTIC?, IN THE MOOD, RUTHLESS The Musical, HATS The Musical, IN THE MOOD – AGAIN, LET’S MISBEHAVE and COCKTAILS WITH NOEL & GERTIE….
