NME announces the “Oh Boy!” stage show is to go ahead

NME announces the “Oh Boy!” stage show is to go ahead for a week in January 1959.

TOP-SELLING British recording group, Lord Rockingham's XI, makes its first public appearance on Sunday, January 25, when the long-projected "Oh Boy!" stage show opens for a week at the Commodore Theatre, Hammersmith. Producer Jack Good told the NME: "Although the show has yet to take shape, I hope that Cliff Richard and all the regular members of the "Oh Boy!" TV company will take part."

Further guest bookings for the Saturday evening TV show have been announced. Terry Dene's date has been put back one week to January 10, and Mona Baptiste appears on January 10 and 17. Actor William Marshall has been engaged for December 27 and January 3. Good says Marshall has a deep voice resembling Paul Robeson and sings "up-tempo spirituals." Neville Taylor's supporting group, The Cutters, will have a new line-up from tomorrow onwards. Wilf Todd and Basil Short have dropped out and are replaced by Al Timothy and "Shake" Keene.
