In Liverpool in 1963 the music world was exploding. Musical talent, attitude and the knowledge that you could be anything you wanted to be saw the city flooded with bands and singers who were headed to the top.

Standing tall amongst all of the boys was the World’s first all-girl rock ’n’ roll group. This is the untold true story of The Liverbirds!

From The Cavern to Hamburg’s Star Club Mary, Sylvia, Val and Pam did it on their terms, turning down Brian Epstein, hanging out with Jimi Hendrix and driving Chuck Berry wild.

This foot-stomping musical will be packed with all of the great 60s songs that shook The Cavern, including the Liverbirds’ smash hits Peanut Butter and Diddley Daddy.

Written by Ian Salmon (The Comeback Special) and directed by Bob Eaton (Lennon) this is a show that will rock the Royal Court like never before!

Cast includes: Molly Grace Cutler (Val) Alice McKenna (Mary), Lisa Wright (Pam) and Sarah Workman (Sylvia) with more to be added soon.
