WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Bugle Boy by English playwright Den Stevenson traces the life of legendary music icon Glenn Miller from leaving college to play in various bands including his own as he searches tirelessly for over twenty years, with the constant support and love of his wife Helen, for a unique band sound. When he eventually succeeds in his quest, he and his family only enjoy the fruits of fame for three short years. When America joins the Second World War, after the bombing of Pearl Harbour, he joins the Army, forms the subsequently famed A.E.F Band and flies to Europe to play to the Armed Forces; then goes missing in mysterious circumstances. Featuring all of Glenn Miller s famous and instantly recognisable tunes from Little Brown Jug to String of Pearls, Moonlight Serenade to Pennsylvania 6-5000 and Chattanooga Choo-Choo to Kalamazoo, this fantastic new Musical will once again put audiences everywhere... IN THE MOOD!
