Dunstable Musical Theatre Company will present a delightful, unassuming musical which starts tonight (Wednesday).

A Slice of Saturday Night is presented at Little Theatre, Dunstable until Saturday May 26.

It’s a slice of life from the Club A Go-Go circa 1964, when a Bacardi and Coke was the height of sophistication and an invitation from a boy to a girl to ‘come outside’ could ruin a reputation.

The music consists of witty pastiches of the genuine ‘60s articles from The Beatles to The Who and from all-girl groups to Cliff and the Shadows, with delicious lyrics which power the boy-meets-girl storyline along.
