Darren Day
Darren Day: wet.
The classic British pop musical Summer Holiday comes to the Liverpool Empire for a week on 18th - 23rd August. The press call was more like 'singing in the rain' for star Darren Day who didn't act like a jungle survivor when the heavens opened!

We all remember the immortal film musical starring Cliff Richard that charted the tale of a bunch of happy-go-lucky pals taking a holiday through Europe on a red London bus.

Now the stage-show version is coming to the Liverpool Empire. The story tells how pop starlet Bobby (Suzanne Shaw of Hear'Say fame), dressed as a boy, steals aboard the touring bus to escape her showbiz lifestyle. Chased by her domineering mother (Aimi MacDonald) and her agent Jerry (Christopher Biggins), she hitches a ride with the holidaymakers and soon falls in love with Bachelor Boy, Don (Darren Day).

Packed full of rock n' roll hits and dance routines, this comedy favourite features timeless songs like 'Summer Holiday' 'Bachelor Boy' 'Livin' Doll' and 'The Young Ones.'

Empty: the top deck of the chartered bus.

It wasn't ideal weather in Liverpool for a summer holiday when star Darren Day turned up for the press call. Due to a spot of rain, our Daz wouldn't hop over the road to board the open-top double decker hired for the event. We imagined, the 'I'm a Celebrity' jungle survivor would have been a bit less scared of getting his hair wet!

Summer Holiday is directed by Michael Gyngell, designed by Paul Farnsworth and has choreography by Tony Award winning Gillina Gregory.

This stellar show will be performed for one week only, so get down to the Liverpool Empire between Monday 18th-Saturday 23rd August.
