Dad’s Army favourite and star of The Comedians at Palace variety show

Posted onPosted on 17th Feb

Mansfield Palace Theatre is hosting another midweek nostalgia matinee with The Good Old Days Of Variety on Wednesday, 14th March, at 2pm.

Billed as a Dad’s Army Variety Show Special, the performance will star Frank Williams, who played the vicar in the original Dad’s Army TV series and is one of only two surviving original cast members.

Frank is making a rare appearance onstage in Mansfield to celebrate the golden jubilee of the famous TV show.

This is the only date on the tour that he will appear at, telling funny stories about Dad’s Army, working on TV with Morecambe & Wise, The Two Ronnies, the new Dad’s Army film – in which he returns in a cameo role as the vicar – and much more.

Just added to the bill in Mansfield is comedy legend Dougie Brown from TV’s hit show, The Comedians.

Also joining them will be West End singing star Linda Watts. The show also features a full supporting company, sing-a-long songs and comedy.
