Birmingham Royal Ballet

Theatre Severn

Saturday 6th May (Matinee)

One is always excited when faced with a prospect of a great show of originality, humour and a unique-ness that can only be achieved by a fantastic team, all pulling in the same direction. In shorter terms that criteria is always met during a  performance by, The Birmingham Royal  Ballet.

The Amazing Bubbleman

The Walker Theatre

Sunday  9th April

When someone refers to themselves as amazing it is either in ironic context and they aren’t remotely amazing at anything,  or they literally are amazing. The latter refers to The Amazing Bubble man. There is no irony in this nomenclature he is amazing.

From out of Berkley, California the Amazing Bubble Man (...

The Christians

Walker Theatre

Friday 7th April


There is always delight in watching a band that has been around since the mid-eighties, rocking as any band of today should. The Christian’s who were  back for their second time at Walker Theatre without doubt, proved they are one such band. From the average age of the audience one wouldn’t imagine there to be too...

Forget Me Not

Rob Gee

Walker Theatre

23 March 2017

If it was Mr Gee’s aim to confuse us as much as his characters appeared to be in this one man show, he was highly successful. However one is certain that the confusion occurred more by accident than good management.

The show is billed as part social commentary, park black comedy and part Cluedo. Confused? You...

Camille O’Sullivan

Theatre Severn

Thursday 9th March 2017


Explosive, enigmatic, sharing, quiet and loving are just a few adjectives that one can apply to a Camille O’Sullivan show. Adjectives that apply not only to the show but to the lady also.  One would liken a trip to a Camille O’Sullivan show akin to throwing a lit match into a tin of fireworks to see what...

Swansea City Opera/Dinas  Abertawe

Theatre Severn

3rd March 2017

The greatest thing one notices at an Opera performance in Shrewsbury is the huge diversity of people that make up the audience. Could this be because of the town’s incredibly  eclectic,  music scene? It might be; however whatever the reason, theatre goers tonight were treated to the wonderful...

Justin Moorhouse

Walker Theatre

Sunday 19th February 2017

Not surprisingly enough given our current political turmoil people  just love comedy, so turnout for a Sunday night in February was impressive. It was obvious there were a lot of fans in expecting Justin Moorhouse to be as funny  if not funnier, than his last visit to the town. Did he succeed? More in a moment....

Saturday 11th February 2017

It is known that any role or act in the performing arts offers up its various challenges, how  the artiste deals with those challenges is a measure of how able or talented they are. Consequently measures are met and the reviewer can reflect on those times and how the artistse did or didn’t handle those challenges....

Whitney –Queen Of The Night

Theatre Severn

Friday 3rd February 2017

If one is a regular at Theatre Severn you will know of the proud tradition of bringing the best of the tribute acts and shows that are working throughout Europe and the UK. Tonight was no exception and for most the spectre of Whitney Houston seemed to be back amongst her people singing her songs and making...

Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra,

The Silver Screen

 Theatre Severn

Sunday 29th January 2017

There’s something rather special about a matinee performance, there seems a certain kind of decadence to be watching a show when others are either working or trying to recover from the week they had working. Such was the scheduling of this rather exciting concert with The...
