Bringing Back the Sixties. The New Amen Corner/Mike D’Abo/Little Miss Sixties Theatre Severn Thursday 7th June 2018 One is always concerned with the Sixties bands as to who were the original members and who is related to who. It is impossible to say that The New Amen Corner have any originals at all. They were all too young with the exception of the Bassist. On checking the internet it seems that...

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 furthest dressing room, did 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. Written by Barbara Vine who is in fact Ruth Rendell, one can’t...

  Another week, another SUV. Honestly, that’s how it’s beginning to feel. Crossovers, soft-roaders, Sports Utility Vehicles, call then what you will, they’re the current automotive equivalent of the proverbial hot cake; they’re selling like them too. However, they don’t always prove that tasty to drive. They’re practical, yes, and undoubtedly so in some cases, but exciting? Not really. Well, not...

T.Rextasy Theatre Severn 31st March 2018 There was an excited air of anticipation as the full house of old T.rex-onians waited patiently for the curtain to rise and for them all to relive a little bit of their youth. Were they to be disappointed? The curtain rose and… is that a ghost we see before us? Has the real Marc Bolan and his band T.Rex turned up to whisk us to planet nostalgia? It sure...

Shrewsbury Amateur Operatic Society Oliver Theatre Severn 21st -24th March 2018 Lionel Bart’s Oliver is without doubt one of the most popular (large cast) bits of Musical Theatre available to societies; and what a gift. In the right hands this show is a great fun singalong show that is so well known it is in all our psyches. Dickens draws his characters so beautifully and so completely, Bart...
