Dad's Army Radio Show


  • Date: Monday 20th May 2024
  • Time: 7.30pm

The nation’s favourite sitcom returns! The boys are delighted to head to Playhouse Whitley Bay with three new episodes!

Two actors, two microphones, over twenty-five characters - and lots of sound effects! The Dad’s Army Radio Show bring’s Perry and Croft’s classic BBC comedy to life in this highly acclaimed stage production.

Three episodes of the popular sitcom - adapted for radio for the very first time - are hilariously and lovingly enacted on stage by two master performers - complete with sound effects, vintage music and all your favourite Perry and Croft characters and catchphrases.

The original television episodes newly minted for The Dad’s Army Radio Show national tour 2024 are:

The Love of Three Oranges

The Miser’s Hoard

The Making of Private Pike

As seen on Dad's Army: The Animations (UKTV Gold), David Benson (Goodnight Sweetheart and One Man, Two Guvnors) and Jack Lane (Wisdom of a Fool and 7 Days) will transport you right back to Walmington.

‘Benson and Lane’s two-man Army are a comedy force to be reckoned with.’ Radio Times

Benson & Lane carry it all off beautifully.’  Daily Telegraph

'Pretty much perfect feat of mimicry.' The Times

‘Utterly brilliant, the best Dad’s Army recreation I’ve seen.’ Barry Cryer

‘Brilliant! The speed, accuracy and comic timing are breathtaking. I loved it!’ Joan Le Mesurier
