Monday 9 May-Saturday 14 May

 

If you think that by reading this article you may learn the solution of the sixty year old mystery of exactly who is the Mousetrap killer? Not a bit of it.

Mad Cow Productions

Monty Python’s  Spamalot

Theatre Severn

28th-30th April (Saturday Matinee 14.30)

 

It would be unbelievable to imagine that there is anyone within the Northern Hemisphere who hasn’t heard of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. It would be equally surprising if one found a soul who claimed never to have laughed at their quintessentially British...

The (Almost) Complete History of Britain.

Walker Theatre

27th April 2016

 

“Where Horrible Histories meets The Reduced Shakespeare company,” One critic had said of this show and that was what was intriguing the audience as they waited patiently in the busy Walker Theatre tonight. In fact it turns out the Pantaloons performance was every bit as clever as the other...

The Magic Of Motown

The Rubettes

Theatre Severn

15 April 2016

If you are a fifty something, then one imagines you will clearly remember the Rubettes. Dishing out their Teeny Bopper Music in their pristine white suits and their trademark big white caps, they painted a noticeable image in the landscape of our past.

If ever you wanted a reminder of what was going on in British Pop Music in the fifties and sixties see this show , it really does have to be the definitive fifties and sixties tribute show. You won’t get much better.

Avenue Q

Theatre Severn

16-20 February 2016

Stunning, Brilliant, Hilarious, Amazing and Awesome, These are just a few of the superlatives one could use in a description of this show. The Muppets for grown-ups is also something one could add.

Avenue Q is a beautifully crafted, written and performed show.

Those of us at fifty something, may well remember all...
