When The Lights Go On Again

 

“When The Lights Go On Again” was performed from the 5th to the 10th November 2007. It was a very funny show full of warmth and humour and every wartime song you can think of, written by Roy Sault with original musical arrangements by Sylvia Roberts.

 
 

The show covered the six momentous years between 1939 and 1945, highlighting the lives, loves, laughter and tears of the Parker family. Letters from home to family members fighting the War abroad provided a link for a variety of wartime situations such as “A Shop Queue”, a riotous “Camp Concert”, an eventful night “At the Pictures”, “Air Raid Wardens”, “School Concert”, “The Home Guard” “A Saturday Night Dance”, “A Night in the Air-Raid Shelter”, and a triumphant “V.E. Party”.

GAOS used authentic recordings of the period to enhance the atmosphere, while many of the well known war songs were featured, including “We’ll Meet Again”, “The White Cliffs of Dover” and “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square”. Some of the songs included audience participation.

The use of bunting, flags, wartime posters and gas masks were used to create authenticity.
