Dad's Army Radio Hour at Redgrave Theatre on Monday 26th March 2018Posted on: 01 Jan 2018
Re-live some of those classic Dad's Army comedy moments at Bristol's Redgrave Theatre on Monday 26th March 2018 when Seabright Productions stages Dad's Army Radio Hour.
Performed by David Benson and Jack Lane who put on the not-insignificant feat of performing 25 characters, the show utilizes scripts by legendary comedy-writing duo Jimmy Perry and David Croft to celebrate 50 years of the show and present some of the best-loved episodes, quotes and moments from the original TV series.
Expect chortle-inducing reenactments of seminal scenes from this quintessentially British sitcom that enjoys multiple repeats on both normal terrestrial channels and Gold and which in fact won the Best One-Liner award by that channel in 2017. "Don't tell him, Pike" and "Stupid boy" are most definitely on the cards then.
Double Fringe First Award winner David Benson and Jack Lane will entertain you with a nostalgic trip down TV memory lane for a mirth-making re-run of iconic clips, beloved characters, unforgettable dialogue and spot-on vocal mimicry.
All together now: "Who do you think you are kidding, Mr Hitler?"
Redgrave Theatre is located within Clifton College grounds at Percival Rd, Clifton, Bristol BS8 3LE
