Palace Theatre Programme

The Palace Theatre (Racy Plays and Revues)
The Palace Theatre (Racy Plays and Revues)

This is a programme for a production at the Palace Theatre in 1950 that I recently found in some old papers of my late parents. I remember my mother telling me that the plays could be rather racy and this becomes apparent when you read this programme. I have seen a programme on TV about the Windmill Theatre London in the forties and a lot of well known entertainers including Tony Hancock, Spike Milligan’ Bruce Forsyth and Tommy Cooper appeared there and that they were racy adult shows and I wonder if this type of play/revue at the Palace was a spin off of this Can anyone remember any more details about the Palace Theatre at this time.

  • I remember being taken by my dad to a show at the Palace headlined by a magician. My dad was very much into magic shows, but, unknown to us, one of the supporting acts was a female nude tableau act which attracted a lot of wolf whistles from the audience. The fact that I was with the father meant that I was extremely embarrassed – and I suppose he was too!
