They sold over 90 million records, nine of them gold. They had more Top Ten hits than the Beatles or Elvis. And they are still one of the best-selling female vocal groups of all time.
You will understand why when you see Swing Swing Swing – our very own story of the Andrews Sisters.
Join us in a high-energy nostalgic trip down memory lane featuring the signature sound of the Andrews Sisters! Our musical, conceived by Richard Cowling, follows sisters LaVerne, Maxene and Patty Andrews from their early days on the road through their rise as recording stars to entertaining American GI’s overseas to dissembling over differences. The score intermingles over twenty hit songs like "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon," "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.”, and the sisters are joined by several other stars of the time: Bing Crosby, Abbott and Costello, Dean Martin and more! Audiences of all ages will enjoy the chemistry and vocal harmony of our vocalists and our live Big Band – lovingly staged by Director and Musical Director Richard Cowling and Choreographer Jo Harris, in the atmospheric setting of St. Andrew’s Church.
And yes – the church have new comfy chairs! The audience will be seated around tables, with tasty nibbles to satisfy your hunger, and a selection of beverages to quench your thirst from the bar.
We are really looking forward to seeing you at what promises to be a truly special evening’s entertainment.
