Oh! Carol fills the theatre with Sedaka hits!

Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield are undoubtedly one of the most successful musical partnerships of all time and Oh! Carol, a live concert tribute to their music, takes mainstage at Pitlochry Festival Theatre for one night only this Sunday, 16 September, 8pm.

It was the summer of 1952 when Neil met Howie for the first time, Neil had won a scholarship to the prestigious Julliard School of Music and could be heard practising for hours in the building where he lived. Howie lived in the same building and although he was 3 years older, his mother suggested they get together to write songs… And the rest, as they say, is history!

Oh! Carol follows their unique story of fame, fortune and those Tra-la-la days. From the talented cast and their phenomenal band of West End musicians - with musical theatre credits spanning Les Misérables, The Phantom of The Opera, Mamma Mia, Jersey Boys and more - comes a show dedicated to celebrating these two giants of the songwriting world with two hours of iconic hit songs and the stories behind them, endorsed with a good luck message from Mr Sedaka himself:

“It's always flattering when talented performers honor my music. I thank the Oh! Carol team for their homage to the work of Sedaka and Greenfield. Wishing you continued success.”

This show is packed full of hits such as Calendar Girl, Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, [Is This The Way To] Amarillo, Stupid Cupid and of course Oh! Carol, masterpieces made famous not only by Sedaka but also other well-known performers like Connie Francis, Tony Christie, Tom Jones and LaVern Baker.

Classy and powerful, if you like to sing along or just want to kick back and relax to great music on a Sunday evening, Oh Carol! will “knock your socks off”!
