Thanet Stage School and The Astor Big Band bring Glenn Miller tale to Margate

Thanet Stage School performers have been out promoting the show

Thanet Stage School teams up with Terry Steel and The Astor Big Band this month to bring the tale of Glenn Miller to Margate’s Winter Gardens.

The Glenn Miller Story (the story continues) will be on stage on June 16.

It charts the true-life story of Glenn Miller from his early days with Ben Pollock to his tragic disappearance on a flight to France at the end of 1944.

This is the 75th anniversary of that flight and the show recreates Glenn’s Chesterfield Broadcasts by adding ‘The Andrew Sisters’ and showgirls from the Thanet Stage School to the line up.

The performance will bring back to life the Miller Band’s residency at The Glenn Island Casino.

All of Astor Big Band’s profits plus a collection made at the performance will be donated to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The show starts at 5pm (doors opne at 4.15pm) and tickets cost £22/£20/£12.50 + £2 booking fee.
