Brand new stage musical Summer Holiday is set to tour the UK this summer, with the famous red double decker bus making its stop at Theatre Royal Brighton from Tuesday 17 – Saturday 21 July.
Based on the iconic 1960’s film of the same name, starring Cliff Richard and The Shadows, Summer Holiday will include all of the number one hits from the movie, plus some additional Cliff Richard classics.
Taking on the lead role of Don made famous by Cliff Richard, is singer songwriter Ray Quinn. Ray shot to fame as the runner up in ITV1’s The X Factor in 2006. This spurred a career in both music and of late musicals, with his debut album Doing it My Way entering the charts at Number 1 and quickly gaining platinum status. Ray is perhaps best known for ‘doing the double’ on ITV1’s hugely successful show Dancing on Ice, winning for the first time in 2009 and then again on Dancing on Ice: Champion of Champions in 2014.

Summer Holiday tells the story of Don and his fellow London Transport mechanics as they journey together in a red double decker bus through Paris, the Alps, Italy and Greece. Along the way they pick up a girl band and a young American pop star who is on the run from her domineering mother!
This hit-filled musical features many of 1960’s biggest songs including ‘In the Country’, ‘Summer Holiday’, ‘Travellin’ Light’, ‘Bachelor Boy’, ‘Move It’, ‘Living Doll’, ‘The Young Ones’ and ‘On the Beach’. It’s a feel good show with bundles of energy and lots of laughs and is sure to put a huge smile on your face.
