The show, which had a matinee performance at Potters Bar’s Wyllyotts Theatre on April 3 and rolled into Hoddesdon’s Broxbourne Civic Hall yesterday (Sunday), was literally a rock of ages.

From the 1950s through to the 1970s, the Timeless Theatre Productions show aptly-billed as “nostalgia at its very best”, was visually stunning and featured incredible performances.

The music of Abba, Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, Buddy Holly, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and many more meant this had something for everyone.

There was even a lively rendition of Zorba the Greek.

Theatregoers were certainly enjoying themselves.

One woman, who caught the show in Hoddesdon, said: “They were as good as the entertainment you get on a cruise ship, absolutely brilliant.

“It went through all the decades with music from each one and the costumes and performances were so good.”

Another audience member added: “And the jokes were funny too.

“It was an all-round fantastic show.”

Those heading to the Embassy Theatre, in Skegness this afternoon (Monday) – the nationwide tour’s next stop – really are in for a treat.
