Boss Basil Newby said: “It was a brilliant night – I still pinch myself 20 years on that it’s still the phenomenon it is.

“It was great that everyone came out and supported us. At the end, people were screaming and giving a standing ovation.

“I still remember the opening night when it was packed, thinking ‘what’s it going to be like the day after?’

“I’ve been asked to take Funny Girls to London and I was tempted but thought I really want to keep it unique to Blackpool.

“It’s a melting pot of people in there and that’s the beauty of Funny Girls.”
