Redannick Theatre

Has there been a traditional Old Time Music Hall in Cornwall in the last 20 years? There certainly hasn’t been one in Truro in that time, but now TAODS are faithfully recreating the style of ‘The Good Old Days’, for 3 nights only, in their own Redannick Theatre (situated in the heart of Truro).


In compiling the show we chose some of the best songs that were around during the early 1900’s – when Music Halls across the country were in their prime.  


The show features a company of 30 chorus and a variety of classic solo songs with endearing titles such as: – Where Did You Get That Hat? – Why Am I Always The Bridesmaid? – Daddy Wouldn’t Buy Me A Bow-Wow!  &  Has Anybody Seen My Tiddler?


In case of a ‘rowdy audience in the cheap seats’, the show will be controlled by ‘The Chairman’, who will compere the evening in his own, inimitable (and traditional) fashion.


Take an intimate theatre, some famous comic songs, old jokes, nostalgia, recitation and a melodrama and you have one very entertaining evening.


If you can’t make the Truro dates, why not come and see us perform the same show at the St Ives Theatre (Kidzrus venue) on the following Saturday, 20th September, 7:30pm. Box office 01736 797007.
