It’s 1930’s Liverpool and the glitz and glamour of Hollywood pour off the luxury liners and into the city’s most fashionable hotel.  Amidst the chaos and decadence, no-nonsense Alice from Reception has fallen for the dashing Thompson from Accounts.  But fate, Hollywood, World War Two and a dizzying array of staff and guests intervene in a Liverpool love story spanning 70 years.

WKLOS return to the Floral Pavilion with Phil Wimott's award-winning smash-hit musical, set in Liverpool's own world famous Adelphi Hotel. The original professional production had its world premiere at the Liverpool Playhouse in 2008 playing to packed houses over an extended run. It was a centrepiece of Liverpool’s Capital of Culture celebrations. WKLOS had the privilege of staging the non-professional premiere at the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton in 2010 as its diamond jubilee production.

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Liverpool’s year as Capital of Culture and is just the right time for a revival of this feel-good family musical. Watch out for the publicity and put the dates in your diary now!
