LET'S Hang On takes a musical journey through the prolific career of one of the most successful bands of all time - Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, the blue collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who wrote their own songs, invented their own sound and took the world by storm.

The first part of the remarkable show, which will be playing The Forum at Barrow on Saturday, April 6, takes the audience back to the very beginning to where it all began for Frankie and the guys. Featured will be tracks from the early 1950s when Frankie first joined the group and then, with the addition of Bob Gaudio still recognised today as one of the greatest song writers of all time, they'll be even more classic early material recreated live on stage.

Also in the first half Let’s Hang On goes acapella with the stage transformed into a street corner in New Jersey with four guys sitting on some steps under a street lamp singing doo wop.

For the second part of the show its simply party time with non stop hits to get the audience on their feet and dancing in the aisles and singing to Dec 63, Beggin’, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Grease, Working My Way Back To You, Who Loves You, Bye Bye Baby and scores more.

The whole production builds to an electrifying finale when out come the retro red jackets and that legendary falsetto vocal blows the roof off with Rag Doll, Sherry, Walk Like A Man and Big Girls Don’t Cry.

Next week is a busy one for The Forum with the Furness Schools U.Dance Festival 2019 on Tuesday, March 26 (7.30pm).

U.Dance is part of Onedance UK’s national dance framework to celebrate high quality dance performance. The dances are all made in school; a collaboration between teachers, children and volunteers who all contribute ideas towards the choreography, costume and music selection.

Also in the spotlight on Thursday and Friday, March 28/29, is The Ashton Group’s Theatre Factory production Mr Deans Marvellous Trip, based on the true story of a young man from Barrow who journeyed to New York to join a Wild West show on Coney Island, but grew into something far stranger. Set in 1911, there's been a worldwide slump in the price of steel and Hindpool Steel Works sheds 2,000 jobs. Foundry man Mr Dean decides it is time to leave and seek his fortune elsewhere.
