A Slice Of Saturday Night

It’s Saturday night at the Club A-Go-Go where the hems are high and the fringes low and the blokes and birds are on the pull. The songs are a nostalgic pastiche of sounds from the Sixties which tell a tale of young love and teenage dreams. After breaking all records at the Arts Theatre in London’s West End, A Slice of Saturday Night, went on to complete four major UK national tours and returned to the West End’s Strand Theatre starring Dennis Waterman.
