A Little Slice Of The Emerald Isles

The National Dance Company of Ireland

Rhythm Of The Dance

Theatre Severn

15 July 2018

 

Straight from the off you know you are going to witness something rather special. One is not mistaken. This is a great, captivating, sometimes breath taking show; it brings the feel and the spirit of a mystical land far across the water. The land of Celts, of magic, history and stories, of sweet sounding music and the land of the dance. Wonderful.

The Return Of The Saviour?

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.

Get your Wigle on again fulfilled their objectives and left a fair sized theatre audience happy and pleased as was seen at the end with the raptuous applause that they received at the finale.
