Neil Sands has drawn on many years of experience in the industry to put together a show befitting this occasion; a show which will cover nine decades of Her Majesty’s life, from the Roaring Twenties, the Fabulous Forties, the Rocking Fifties and the Swinging Sixties, more recent show favourites, a selection from Last Night of the Proms, and a flag-waving finale paying tribute to the veterans of her Armed Forces.
Joining Neil for his production of 90 Glorious Years are Gemma Turner, whose voice has drawn comparisons with that of Katherine Jenkins, and Stars In Their Eyes winner Angie Diggens.
The Golden Times Duo will be providing backing music for the performance with stirring renditions of many of Her Majesty’s favourites. Their versatile repertoire includes numbers made famous by
the likes of Tommy Steele, Shirley Bassey, Vera Lynn, Max Bygraves and many more.
Neil said: “These shows give what many of a certain age regard as ‘proper entertainment,’ a chance to come out during the day and have a fun filled afternoon, bringing back many happy memories and still be home for tea time.
“The wonderful voices, stunning costumes and good old fashioned fun on offer will make this the perfect nostalgic way to celebrate this historic occasion.”
The Queen celebrates her actual 90th birthday on April 21 and her official one on June 11. Neil and his cast will be taking this production on a 40-date nationwide tour starting in April and continuing around England and Wales throughout the summer and into September.
