Salad Days, at Studio Theatre, Ashley Road and written by Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds, opened in 1954 in the West End and remained there until 1960 when it closed after 2283 performances. This was the first show seen by the young Cameron Mackintosh which sparked off his life-long interest in the theatre.

The show is built around the tale of a magic piano that can make people dance. Timothy and Jane have just left University and are having to make their way in the world with the help (or hindrance) or their respective families. Their lack of income is miraculously solved for the summer when they are offered £7 a week to look after the piano, and this leads to a variety of musical adventures.

There are over 20 parts in the musical encompassing the age range of ‘teen to seventies and the atmosphere is one of a summertime, light-hearted romp with well-loved songs that the cast have tackled with gusto! Directed by Camilla Burgess, it runs from 23 – 28 May at 7.30 p.m. and a Saturday matinee at 2.30 p.m. on 28 May. Tickets are from the Salisbury Information Centre, Fish Row. Tel 01722 342860.
