Feelin’ groovy? Then come and celebrate 50 years of Simon and Garfunkel at St Helens Theatre Royal
8 years ago
Has it really been 50 years since the most successful folk/rock duo of all time recorded their first no1 hit single The Sound of Silence?
It sure has! But the music of this American folk rock duo certainly hasn’t been forgotten and keeping their unique sound alive is The Simon and Garfunkel Story show which comes to St Helens Theatre Royal on Thursday, 16th June.
Following its sell-out success in London’s West End, The Simon and Garfunkel Story is currently the biggest and the most successful No 1 International touring theatre show celebrating the lives and career of folk/rock sensation Simon and Garfunkel.
Featuring seasoned West End leading man Greg Clarke and a full cast of talented actor- musicians, The Simon and Garfunkel Story takes you back through the ‘groovy‘ times of the 1960s.
The Simon and Garfunkel Story tells the fascinating tale of how two young boys from Queens, New York, went on to become the world’s most successful music duo of all time.
Starting from their humble beginnings as 50s Rock ‘n’ Roll duo Tom & Jerry, The Simon and Garfunkel Storytakes you through all the songs and stories that shaped them, the dramatic split, their individual solo careers and ends with a stunning recreation of the legendary 1981 Central Park Reunion Concert.
Using a huge projection screen, the show takes you on a powerful musical journey featuring 1960s photos and film footage whilst a full live band perform all the duo’s greatest hits including Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, Sound of Silence, Scarborough Fair, The Boxer and many more!
Theatre manager Chantelle Nolan commented: “We are delighted to welcome the UK’s biggest and most successful Simon and Garfunkel theatre show to St Helens and celebrate 50 years of one of the most successful folk-rock duos of all time.
“This fantastic show offers amazing acting, a great story and decades of chart topping hits all in one evening!”
With every performance creating a standing ovation, this is an evening not to be missed so get your tickets fast!
