Worried that your body isn’t perfect? Then ‘SKIN DEEP’’ is for you. Yes, YOU! It’s the ultimate look at a subject that obsesses us all: BODY IMAGE.
Too fat? Too thin? Never exercised? Gym crazy? Addicted to diets? Hate how you look in the nude?
This musical revue has a song for every hang-up, including ‘EMBARRASSING BODIES’, ‘LET IT ALL HANG OUT’, and ‘DOES MY BUM LOOK BIG IN THIS?’
Our sensational female star and her four boys explore why we don’t all look like Amanda Holden and David Beckham, and celebrate the funny (and vulnerable) side of bodies. Join us for a riotous evening of fun, flesh and fabulous song.

Sincerely Yours
written by Sarah O’Connor

Landor Theatre, 70 Landor Road, London SW9 9PH
Wednesday 15th July – Sunday 19th July 2015

Inspired by the Poppies displayed at the Tower of London last year, which had an unprecedented public appreciation. The poppies represented the British heroes who battled and gave their lives to defend our freedoms. Although they commemorated the soldiers lost in the 1st World War, they had significance and relevance to all of us today.

Everybody did their bit for the war effort and the British population rallied. With such great courage on the front line, whilst those back home toiled away to keep the home fires burning. It was an era of stiff upper lip: no matter the personal tragedy, a brave and smiling face would resolutely present front and centre to the World.

Sincerely Yours brings to life some of the backstage dramas overcome by an entertainment troupe when they are dispatched to help the war effort.

Amazing songs that have withstood the test of time, an era of grace and fortitude, songs and dance to uplift your spirits – and of course, the show must always go on!

Such classics as We’ll Meet Again, White Cliffs of Dover, Chattanooga Choo Choo, and 19 others that lift your spirits while on a roller coaster that offers glimpses from a different era and culture. Indulgent nostalgia presented for entertainment.

This new production Sincerely Yours, presented by LAMBCO Productions, has been written by Sarah O’Connor. 12 months researching the entertainment troupes of the 2nd World War brought to life right here.

This musical has been created by the multi-award winning team from the Landor Theatre. Previous collaborations have included The Clockmaker’s Daughter, Damm Yankees, and Next Thing You Know, and Title of Show to name just a few.

BlueBirds a musical

As the Blitz rages across London a plucky troupe of volunteers defies Hitler to keep their ENSA song and dance show running. But while it is all smiles and fun for the audience, the real drama is backstage as the war changes everyone’s lives forever.
Packed with 22 wartime classics including Chattanooga Choo Choo, Accentuate The Positive, Every Time We Say Goodbye and the inevitable White Cliffs Of Dover, Bluebirds is heart-warming story of courage and finding love where you least expect it.

Daisy’s quest to find her Bill, an Australian Soldier, eventually leads her on a journey to the Australian War Memorial to the Missing in France. Her wartime memories come flooding back with beautiful nostalgia and a longing for the days gone by.

Bewitchment on Black Ice

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived an extremely powerful woman… Surrounded by wealth and emptiness, her desire to exert control knew no bounds. Without the respect she craved, her quest for universal popularity was futile. Her heart was black and her compassion as cold as ice as she dominated the population, and imposed her every desire across the kingdom.

With her vast wealth she procured all the magic in the land, becoming both omnipotent and unquestionably formidable. Feared by all, unloved, and descending deeper and deeper into her own self-created darkness, her malevolence turned the snow as black as her mood. Now, the black ice serves to remind us of her omnipotence

This unique production will be the first time that any Off West-End theatre has done a professional show on ice skates using synthetic Black Ice created specifically for the purpose.
