Pack up your Troubles
MAY I offer my very sincere congratulations to the ladies and gentlemen of MADAOS on yet another success for them - this time it was their latest production entitled “Pack up your Troubles”.
MAY I offer my very sincere congratulations to the ladies and gentlemen of MADAOS on yet another success for them - this time it was their latest production entitled “Pack up your Troubles”. This included a variety of songs, dancing and a touch of humour from the 1940s.
With an excellent musical backing they breezed through a programme of songs that raised the spirits of all of us who lvied through the Second World War. When the war started in 1939 there was already more than one song on the stocks suited to the occasion, but the songwriters of Tin Pan Alley were ready with words and music tuned to make us cheerful, tearful or patriotic.
Dressed in the fashions of the era this talented group obviously enjoyed themselves and their interpretation was most entertaining.
From the sentiment of “We’ll Meet Again” to the soul-stirring “There’ll Always Be An England” they brought back many memories for those of us who were privileged to be there and who indeed, for two hours or more, we are able to ‘pack up their troubles’.
