Dunstable Amateur Operatic Society (DAOS) presents

A Slice Of Saturday Night

A musical for those that missed the sixties, or were there but can’t remember! The Heather brother’s A Slice Of Saturday Night is a delightful, unassuming musical and is no more nor less than its title claims — a slice of life from the Club A Go-Go circa 1964, when a Bacardi and coke was the height of sophistication and an invitation from a boy to a girl to ‘come outside’ could ruin a reputation!

Directed by Alan Goss with choreography from Jo Herd and musical direction by Chris Young, the story centres around three pairs of teenagers and the club owner and doorman Eric ‘Rubber Legs’ De Vene. His job is to keep order and dry the teenage tears shed over acne, puppy fat and sexual rejection. He is the paternal figure who has a hard shell with the gooiest of centres.

The music is terrific. Clever, witty pastiches of the genuine sixties’ articles from The Beatles to The Who, from all-girl groups to Cliff and the Shadows, with delicious lyrics which power the boy-meets-girl storyline along. So what is that story? Well.....
Sue fancies Gary.
Gary fancies all the girls.
Eddie fancies Bridget but she does not fancy him.
Rick and Sharon are too shy to fancy anyone.
Penny fancies all the boys.

A really funny musical where the songs, although original, seem strangely familiar.
