Singing tramps, village virgins and tongue twisters are all part of the delicious ingredients that are set to be served up in the piping hot Seasonal Sauce at the Queen’s Theatre later this month.

The show will be on stage at the theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch, on Tuesday November 30 at 8pm.

This naughty but nice night gets the festive spirit started as it takes audiences on a hilarious journey through the best eras of song and comedy – from Music Hall, variety and Vaudeville to traditional pantomime and modern West End musicals.

Promising entertainment like it used to be, Seasonal Sauce is overflowing with songs, sketches and serious audience participation! There’s plenty of innuendo and even a Noël Coward medley thrown in for good measure!

The show will be brought to you by the theatre’s own resident group of actors and musicians, Cut To The Chase.

Audiences will recognise Queen’s favourite Katie Milton who has graced the theatre in past shows like Music Hall.

You will also be stunned by her incredible voice which has graced the Brick Lane Music Hall as the principal soprano.

Joining Katie will also be other performers including Helen Watson, Jim McManus, Philip Day and David Wykes from London’s West End and cabaret scene. They’ll be singing favourite songs such as Mad Dogs and Englishmen, Don’t Put Your Daughter on the Stage Mrs Worthington, White Cliffs of Dover and I’ll See You Again.

Other highlights include: Helen’s Village Virgin from the West End’s Lock Up Your Daughters, featuring saucy songs such as Lovely Lover and Sunny Sunday Morning; Jim’s tongue-twisting variety number Sister Sarah; and Helen and Philip’s Tramp Medley, a gag-cracking down-and-out duo delivering ditties such as Oh We Ain’t Got a Barrel of Money and I Wanna Be Rich.

The show is part of the theatre’s Music in the Foyer series, tickets are £9.50 or just £7.50 if you’ve already booked two or more Music in the Foyer shows this season.
