Saved By The Bell is back people and this time around, there’s songs.
Yep, the show of the late 80s/early 90s is due to return this year because why not bring back something which doesn’t remind us of vloggers, Toby Young and all the other irritating 2017 stuff?
Bayside, the musical stage play, will come to the UK from March 9 – 17 for a brief run at The Other Palace in London.
Created by Bob and Tobly McSmith, who also made Friends: The Musical Parody, expect to see all the your favourites: Zac, Kelly, Screech, Lisa, Slater and Jesse.
Producer Michael Neri said, according to Shortlist:
Nostalgia of the ’80s seems to be a trend at the moment with so many reboots and one-off reunions on our TV screens, so being able to present Bayside in a musical format is a wonderful way of remembering what once was.
The show was written to simply entertain its audience. We only want our audience to come away laughing and having been entertained by the writing, music and talent on stage.
I’m personally elated to be premiering the show at The Other Palace, a theatre which prides itself on nurturing new work.
The cast of Saved By The Bell famously reunited in 2015 on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, minus Lark Voorhies and Dustin Diamond.
Diamond later revealed he wasn’t even invited to the reunion and found out through his girlfriend’s friend, saying:
It would have been fun but I don’t see it as a personal insult.
Diamond’s relationship with the cast has been skewered since the show ended, not least thanks to 2009 ghostwritten autobiography called Behind the Bell which opened up about off and on-set frictions.
Speaking about his regrets over the book, Diamond said, according to the Hollywood Reporter:
I wanted to do a book on my life – all the stuff I’ve gone through, like my brother, a lot of things people didn’t know about, and nobody was interested in it. No one wanted to hear it. Everybody just wanted gossip.
Here’s the way I look at it. I walk a very honest and humble path and I know what kind of person I am. I’m very comfortable where I fit in life.
I’m playing comedy clubs. I’m not rich, but I make a living. I’ve tripped and fallen many times in my life. If you don’t how do you learn?
Deep. Anyhow, if you wanna catch Bayside hit up their website right here.
