Why See The Glenn Miller Story?

Get in the mood with the Glenn Miller Story!

Tommy Steele makes a triumphant return to the stage, six decades after he first trod the boards, to star as the late, great big band pioneer in this strictly limited run of The Glenn Miller Story. Emblematic of Wartime entertainment, musician, composer and bandleader Miller and his orchestra soundtracked an era with hits such as 'In The Mood' 'Moonlight Serenade' 'Little Brown Jug' and many more evoking nostalgia and memory on each listen.

So join Steele and cast of talented musicians and performers as they breathe life into the story of the man, his career and untimely passing in a joyous celebration that'll have you tapping your toes all the way home!

Who was Glenn Miller?

Born in 1904, he bought his first trombone with his paycheck from his first job - milking cows! The bovine world's loss was music's gain as Miller went from strength to strength, composing, performing and becoming the iconic bandleader we know of today.

During the highpoint of his career ('39 to '43) he scored an impressive 23 number one hits, more than Elvis and The Beatles. In addition to his well-loved swing and jazz oeuvre, he is also remembered for his mysterious death. On the way to play for US troops in France in 1944, his plane was lost in a storm over the English Channel and never recovered. Since then, his legacy has been celebrated by numerous orchestras, movies, and recordings and now - this glorious new production.

We love you, Tommy!

Iconic in his own right, Steele has been entertaining the nation since his first foray into theatre with a role in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. Since then he went on to become a king of the musical with starring turns in myriad stage productions and a dozen movies, most fondly remebered of which was his take on the cheeky chappy Arthur Kipps in 1967's Half a Sixpence.
