The Castle Theatre – Carpenters Gold
10th October, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£25.50
Immerse yourself in an enchanting evening featuring the musical brilliance of Richard and Karen Carpenter.
From Close to You to Top of the World, all their chart-topping hits feature including We’ve Only Just Begun, Goodbye to Love, Please Mr Postman, For All We Know and Only Yesterday.
All superbly performed live in concert, just as they would have been by The Carpenters back in the day at the Talk of the Town, London Palladium, and their International tours including Japan.
Indeed, West End star and director Vikki Holland-Bowyer not only perfectly emulates Karen’s legendary rich contralto, she even gets behind the drums! Also, The Carpenters’ on-stage light-hearted humour is captured perfectly as Greg Stevenson effortlessly recreates Richard’s sublime piano playing supported by a band oozing Seventies glitz.
When we were young, we’d listen to the radio, waiting for our favourite songs – now we can enjoy them live, performed just how they would have been by the Carpenters during their heyday.
Carpenters Gold is heading your way – it’s Yesterday Once More.
