PollenRehearsals are in full swing for the most unique theatrical presentation on the Algarve this year. The Algarveans Experimental Theatre group is 25 years old in September and they wanted to stage something really special to mark this anniversary.

The genesis of the musical started back in the days when Ian performed all over the world as part of the New Vaudeville Band with his co-writer, Bobby Hay-Smith. Ian has always enjoyed writing and arranging music and has been known to have a secret bottom drawer of songs that has never seen the light of day. Why? Ian is a perfectionist with his music and unless it is right it does not get performed.
