ALL aboard for canal-based theatre company Mikron’s new shows.
On the bill are All Hands on Deck which is set in World War Two, and navigates a love story between the Royal Navy and their loyal ‘Jenny Wrens’, and Redcoats which follows Mikron’s radiant redcoats as they guide you through 80 years of the Billy Butlin’s holiday dream.
The two shows are visiting this area in the company’s 48th year of touring.
Always firm favourites, Mikron delight audiences with their informative, dramatic and musically jam-packed and very British themed shows.
In All Hands On Deck, new WRNS recruits Ginger and Lily are looking for wartime adventure.
Lily wants to serve on dry land, but Ginger is desperate to serve at sea – and the sailors can’t believe their luck!
The show pays tribute to all those wartime women who pushed the door to opportunity firmly open.
Full of dots, dashes, semaphore and song, Ginger and Lily find themselves in uncharted waters on a journey they’ll never forget.
As for Redcoats, join Mikron as they delve into holiday huts and bonny baby contests with guest appearances from Marlene Dietrich, Gracie Fields and Laurel and Hardy.
The play is written by Nick Ahad – playwright, journalist, broadcaster on BBC Radio Leeds and bone fide bonnie baby competition winner, Skegness! He’s no stranger to writing, but this is his first time writing for Mikron.
