First performed at the Theatre Royal, Bristol, in June 1954, Salad Days had its initial West End run at the Vaudeville Theatre where it ran for 2,283 performances, becoming the longest running show of its time.


'Salad Days' is a phrase first coined in Shakespeare's Anthony and Cleopatra, and referring to youth.


The musical tells the light-hearted tale of recent graduates Timothy and Jane.


Unhappy with their pushy parents, they decide to get jobs and take on the responsibility of looking after a piano in a park!


Little are they prepared to deal with the magic and madness that follows.


Having charmed audiences around the world with their award-winning Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S. Pinafore and The Mikado, Regan De Wynter Williams returns with one of Britain's best-loved and sunniest musicals with TV and West End star Wendi Peters (Coronation Street, ITV; Hetty Feather, BBC; White Christmas, Dominion Theatre).


The show will be touring around the UK from this coming September (see below for dates and venues).


In the London area, the show will be stopping off at the Richmond Theatre from 10 to 15 September.


Director Bryan Hodgson commented ...


"I am thrilled to be able to stage Salad Days again this autumn - it serves as one of the greatest romps in musical theatre history, and really brings us a timeless sense of enjoyment and nonsense, which is always welcome in counteracting the sometimes overwhelming seriousness of today.


With the fabulous Wendi Peters joining the cast too, it will simply be a fun and delightful evening out, and I cannot wait to get the magic piano and spaceship ready for its latest trip around the charming British countryside!
