On Saturday 12 September Let’s Twist Again returns to the Epsom Playhouse bringing the best of Fifties and Sixties music to the stage. Now it it’s fourth successive year and wowing audiences everywhere it plays, this is a brand new production for 2015.
In 1974 the world was to witness a new musical phenomenon the like of which had not been seen since the days of Elvis and The Beatles. The music of the Bay City Rollers became the soundtrack for a generation of teenagers growing up in the mid-seventies. The face and voice of that soundtrack belonged to Les McKeown who will be appearing on stage on Sunday 13 September. The Bay City Rollers is a celebration of those hectic days of hit songs, touring, TV shows and the behind the scenes pandemonium that followed the band everywhere they went. Hits such as 'Bye Bye Baby, 'Shang A Lang', 'Summer Love Sensation' and 'Give A Little Love'. A night of fun and nostalgia taking the audience back to those innocent days of growing up to the sounds of The Bay City Rollers.
