Written by Peter Nichols, the award-winning Privates on Parade ( Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 1977) will fall in at the Noël Coward Theatre this winter, enetertaining the troops from 01 December 2012 to 02 March 2013.
Set in South East Asia at the end of the Second World War, Privates on Parade follows the adventures of a fictional Song and Dance Unit South East Asia (SADUSEA).
The show joins the group as it welcomes its newest recruit: private Steven Flowers who must prove his manhood, without relying on his uniform.
Simon Russell Beale stars as Captain Dennis, leader of the troupe and star of the show: providing many memorable moments including his Marlene Dietrich, his Vera Lynn and his unforgetable Carmen Miranda!
Privates on Parade is part of the new series of productions from the Michael Grandage Company
Evenings: Monday – Saturday 7.30pm
Matinees: Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2.30pm
