A VARIETY show phenomenon which has had five sell out shows at the London Palladium is set to raise the roof at town theatre with its 35th anniversary rock and roll tour.

That’ll be the day is a variety show performance made up of entertainers of all background and ages in show business and will be coming to The Forum, Barrow on Sunday, February 20 for a show like no other.

In 1986, Trevor Payne founded the show as he was doing other performance roles and decided to stitch together his own to make a better show that flowed.

He said: “I wanted something different, something that instead of a lot of show and musical that had everything.

“We’ve got signing, dancing, comedy, impersonating, it’s a variety show all with a rock and roll twist."

“We never come to the theatre with the same show, everyone is different.”

Trevor, who lives in Bristol and his team of 10 play 200 shows a year from Edinburgh to Cornwall, getting the audience off their seat and are excited to return to Barrow for another year.

He said: “The shows are infectious. We are all so proud of every performance we put on, we’re all very creative, we make them the best we possibly can.

“We have been to Barrow before and it’s interesting because we’ve played at huge theatres like the Edinburgh Play House and then to come to Barrow and play for around 400 people it's different, but we will always do the same standard of show in every theatre, we all want to do well and win the audience over giving them the best day.”

The name ‘That’ll be the day’ comes from an iconic, rock and roll sensation, Buddy Holly song, which Trevor said is nostalgic.

He said: “You look back on pop before and you can’t do that with rap, we are able to go back and look at pop history and bring out the best in it.

“I have to sit down every year and think about how I can involve the audience from start to finish.

“But you can only do that if you have super talented cast like my guys and girls, they’re all excellent and so talented and versatile.

“It really is a show not to be missed.”
