A school trip to the 'Elvis' Musical

I was a teacher in Coventry and on four occasions we travelled down to London to watch the Elvis musical in the late 70s.

It was always a long trip in the school minibus with 13 young people but the show was tremendous. I particularly remember the changeover from the Elvis era to the Beatles. And of course American Trilogy as performed by Bogdan. I thought Fumble did so well on both items. I remember them clambering through the audience during the show. I think one of them had little hair.

I saw the show in Birmingham about 5 years later with someone called Mark (Eager?) or something like it, perhaps it was Vince but it never had the quality of the London production.

I wish you well- Rock on Elvis
