The Doris Day Story- Que Sera sera
This musical life story charts the songs and story of one of Hollywoods true greats. 17 songs, 4/5 piece band, 2 actors ( 1 male 1 female ) plus Doris herself. From an aspiring 14 year old dancer almost maimed in a car accident to a successful band singer and thence swimming in the glittz of Hollywood. Surviving 4 unhappy marriages, a virtual bankrupcy and the loss of her only son, she channelled herself in later life into the welfare and protection of animals. Magic, music, high drama, quiet humour and hugely entertaining. Originally scheduled for a Spring Tour this show has now been re- scheduled, post Corona virus outbreak, for an Autumn premier and countrywide tour. Keep a lookout in local press for dates and venues.
Connie Francis- Music and Memories
Written and directed by Brian Langtry
Fabulous fifties music and the enthralling story of this towering performer, who, as a nineteen year old wore the mantle of the first female pop star. The show features all her hits and sees Connie as a `young` and then `older woman` reminiscing and ordering her thoughts before writing her autobiography.

`The Eva Cassidy Story`was written by Brian in 2001 after he heard and became enchanted by the Eva version of `Somewhere Over The Rainbow¬ which shot to the top of the U.K. charts championed by Radio 2 producer Paulie Walters and D.J. Terry Wogan. Coming at a moment in time when music was over syntesised, over produced and almost unilaterally formulaic;the beautiful soaring vocals and solitary guitar, was a welcome breath of fresh air and an inspiration. The show first toured the UK/Ireland in 2003 starring Loretto Murray in the role of Eva collecting awards along the way. Eva has now completed a further 10 tours. Faye Tozer Smith, Nicole Faraday, Juli Brown, Sarah June Buckley and Zoe Tyler are amongst the actors who have played this iconic and unique singer. The Show is produced by `Theatre-Productions`.
