THE Deanery Players are presenting their 53rd annual production Me and My Girl next month.
This hit show first opened in the West End in 1937 starring Lupino Lane. It played to capacity audiences until the Blitz closed many of the London theatres.
Lupino Lane directed a new production of the show after the war but then it was unheard of until Stephen Fry revised the script and added more of Noel Gay’s songs in 1983.
It opened in 1983 to great acclaim and lengthy runs in the West End and Broadway with Robert Lindsay playing the lead role of Bill Snibson, a costermonger from the East End who has inherited the Earl of Hareford, much to the disgust of his newly-found aristocratic relations.
With hilarious characters, witty one-liners and uplifting songs including The Lambeth Walk, Leaning on a Lamppost and Love Makes the World Go Round, Me and My Girl is a treat for all fans of musical comedy.
l Me and My Girl runs at Harrogate Theatre from February 9-11.
l Tickets are available from Harrogate Theatre Box Office on 01423 502 116 or visit www.harrogatetheatre.co.uk
