The uplifting and fun show, Rockin' on Heaven's Door, returns to the Queen's Theatre, Barnstaple on Friday, March 28.Now celebrating its 10th rockin' year, the production has reached new heights with a ground-breaking tour of Europe, gaining a brand new following in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. The show features spookily convincing portrayals of six of rock 'n' roll's all time greats. Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, The Big Bopper, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the king himself, Elvis Presley. Leather-clad heart-throb Eddie Cochran is played by Steve Halliday, who is sure to impress all with his mastery of the guitar. The energetic Dave Wickenden wields his Fender Stratocaster with style as he lovingly recreates the sound of Buddy Holly. Roy Orbison is brought to life by the spell binding Barry Steele, JS Rawlings gives a rousing performance as The Big Bopper and Darren Green is smokin' as Jerry Lee Lewis with his 'flaming' piano. Then Richard Atkins strides on stage for his reincarnation of 70s Elvis Presley. In an utterly memorable performance, Richard shakes and gyrates, goes out into the audience and dominates the theatre with his fantastic tribute to the king. The performers are aided by a band of highly talented musicians. To accompany each distinctive performance, they must play in four different styles, making them the heart of the show and the driving force behind it.Where else would you see Elvis, Roy, Buddy and Eddie Cochran all on stage at the same time? Close your eyes and you really will think you're rockin' on heaven's door.For further information or to book tickets call the box office on (01271) 324242 or visit www.northdevontheatres.org.ukTHE North Devon Gazette has two pairs of tickets to give away to the show on Friday, March 28, at the Queen's Theatre, Barnstaple.
