The Story of Doo-Wop at The Seagull Theatre

The theatre show ‘The Story of Doo-Wop’ performed by the UK’s premier vocal quartet, The TestostaTones, visits the Seagull Theatre in Lowestoft on Friday 26th October.

The show explores the unique genre which emerged in the 1950s and paved the way for early rock, also enjoying resurgences in several following decades.

During the early 1950s, quartets sung on street corners, in barbershops and churches. As this new “sound” began to grow in popularity and reach the attention of prominent radio disc jockeys, taking over the billboard charts, the groups moved from the streets into the recording studios and the rest, as they say, was history.The Story of Doo-Wop is performed as a live “broadcast” from a radio studio and presented by the host for the evening, Chuck Anderson, a fictional radio show disc jockey who “spins the discs” of some of the biggest hits of the genre.These will be performed live by The TestostaTones, a group who have sung for the Queen, Olly Murs and Arnold Schwarzenegger as well as live on BBC Radio 2 several times. They will be singing songs such as ‘Blue Moon’, ‘Earth Angel’, ‘Runaround Sue’, ‘Teenager in Love’, ‘Why Do Fools Fall in Love’ and ‘In The Still of the Night’, among many others.

Tickets are £13 and £11 for concessions available from the box office on 01502 589726 or online at www.theseagull.co.ukFollowing sellout performances at other venues, anybody interested is urged to book early to avoid disappointment!
