Some of the talented cast from the popular World War Two themed show ‘Sing As We Go’ took a tea break from rehearsals in costume at Ramsgate’s own 1940’s Tea Room ‘The Home Front’ in King Street.

Kim and Rosemary greeted Frank Tucker, Stacy Golding, Gordon Clarkson and Moira Pearn with a pot of tea in authentic China cups and saucers and had to remind them to use the tea strainer as ‘no tea bags in the 40s’!

Sing As We Go is a tribute to the performers of ENSA who raised morale for troops and munitions workers during the dark years of the conflict. They entertained at home and abroad, even on the front lines.

The one-off performance is presented at the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Fordoun Road, Broadstairs on Remembrance Sunday 12th November for a special matinee at 4pm.

The pictured cast are joined for the performance by soprano Heather Grant, character actor Ian Douglas with a special cameo appearance by Broadstairs Stalwart Michael Flagg.

Live musical support is provided by percussionist Roy Golding and West End pianist Ben Warn, who, in addition to playing for the show will perform his celebrated solo of the poignant ‘The Warshaw Concerto’.

The show is designed to recreate authentically as possible settings and glamorous costumes of an ENSA concert of the 1940s and comprises more than 30 popular songs of the period and classic comedy sketches from The Crazy Gang plus radio favourites Workers Playtime, Gert and Daisy and even The Ovalteenies, right up to the patriotic flag waving finale.

Tickets are  £14 in Advance ( £16 on the door) Booking fees apply, via www.sarahthornetheatre.co.uk  or the box office telephone 0333 666 4466
