Swing’s the thing, the region’s premier big band, are back for their new season at “The Masque” in Barton Seagrave, Kettering.
The season starts on Thursday 8th June with the 2nd part of our Sinatra Trilogy, “The Main Event” Those of you who saw our “Sinatra at the Sands” show in December 2015 will be pleased to know that Mel Peake is back with us once again, this time to recreate the 1974 concert that famously epitomised Sinatra’s dramatic comeback following a brief period of retirement.
We move forward 8 years from Las Vegas to New York City and instead of the Count Basie Orchestra we have the Woody Herman Orchestra. Sinatra was always careful to use the finest musicians available and just as Basie’s band was at its best in 1966 for the Las Vegas concerts, the band making the headlines in 1974 was Woody Herman and his Young Thundering Herd.
Remarkably, Sinatra included no fewer than 12 new songs in this show, including the one he affectionately refers to as “The National Anthem”.
THIS IS A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR BIG BAND SWING AT ITS VERY BEST, CLOSE UP & ACCOUSTIC. BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.

The "Greatest Movie Musical of All Time" is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin' in the Rain JR. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin' in the Rain JR. a guaranteed good time for performers and audience members alike.
Singin' in the Rain JR. has all the makings of a Tinsel town tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.
Three extraordinary roles for young performers and a tour de force comedic turn make Singin' in the Rain JR. a perfect choice for NMPAT Kettering Music & Performing Arts Centre with our abundance of talent ready to shine.
