Get Your Wigle On

Whistle Down The Wind

Theatre Severn

Thurs 12th July to Saturday 14th (Saturday Matinee 2.30)

It takes a very brave company and a confident cast to take on what is probably one of the lesser known musicals from the pen of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Whistle Down the Wind.

The Elvis Years

Theatre Severn

6th July 2018

 

Tonight Theatre Severn was absolutely packed to the rafters and beyond, something of quality was about to happen and the crowd waited with an excited buzz waiting to see their hero, Elvis Presley, well Mario Kombou but that’s a close to Elvis Presley as we could ever be.

Raymond Froggatt

Walker Theatre

Friday 18th May 2018

An evening in the company of the mercurial mind of Raymond Froggatt is an evening to be remembered. To spend time in the company of this doyen of pop music is both a privilege and a joy.

Pop sensation Raymond Froggatt came onto the stage to start the show and he appeared a little breathless. Had he run from the...

Gallowglass

Theatre Severn

1 May-5 May (Matinee 2.30 on 5th)

Gallowglass is a mixed bag. Great expense, great cast, great authoress, and a lavish set: So why were people coming out of the theatre at the end looking bemused? There is something not quite right about this show, it doesn’t sit well amongst other great crime dramas.
