Mr. Charles Dickens Presents

A Christmas Carol

Walker Theatre

12/November/2018

It is 175 years since Mr. Dickens first put quill to velum to bring us the most favourite story of our great Christmas season. A Christmas Carol. It is hard to believe that a piece of work so relevant and so fresh can be so old, but it is and for all those decades this allegorical tale of...

Poppies For Pals

Tommy, Tony and Tiny had been mates for years back when,

From scruffy lads with bloodied knees to three smart grown young men,

Tommy married Tiny’s Sister, Tiny stood Best Man,

Tony drove the wedding car and ensured they stuck to plan.

Beneath the Lancashire Fell Sides they dug the coal together,

Early mornings they would go in every...

Shropshire Dram Company

Henry V

Walker Theatre

7th -10th November 2018

This review today is not the sort of review you may be used to from me. Indeed the performance is usually spent and what I say, no matter how observant or cutting, can change anything, the ephemeral nature of the performance has gone.  Not so this time instead, this is a pre-performance review, a...

To Have To Shoot Irish Men

Walker Theatre

1st November 2018

Well what a mixed bag we have with this show, contrasting styles, conventions and design all went to give slightly less than one initially imagined. This Almanac Arts production of Lizzie Nunnery’s To Have To Shoot Irishmen, has taken hold of a period of Irish History, the Easter uprising of 1916 and contrasted...

Get Your Wigle On

Peter Pan

Wednesday 24th-Saturday 27th October

(Matinee Friday & Saturday 2.30 pm)

 

Billed as a musical adventure the Wigles tucked into this feast with their usual gusto.  Bringing the Michael Jacksonesque lad who won’t grow up, to the stage. A traditional narrative, sticking closely to J.M.Barrie’s original story the show has become...

Beyond the Barricade

Theatre Severn

16th October 2018

Sorry Spandau Ballet fans, there was not a single note of that beautiful song, instead there was a mixed bag of songs from the shows, leading to their big finale piece taken of course from, Les Miserables.

So who is, Beyond the Barricade? They are all former performers from the West End run of Les Miserables...

The Robin Nolan Trio

Walker Theatre

Friday October 12th

Living proof that you can improve on perfection; After a perfect start this Gypsy Jazz trio just got better and better.

Initially here’s a quick glance of the genre. Gypsy Jazz is a unique sound fusing Jazz Music with Blues with folk with pop. Played on guitars and maybe violin and trumpet, it is a fast, pacey...

The Simon and Garfunkel Story

Theatre Severn

25th September 2018

 

The most significant aspect of the peace loving Sixties was the fact that before and since the changes between the decades had been incremental at best but in truth barely noticeable. From the un-expectant wings on the stage of humanity the Sixties exploded like a rampant troubadour with its poetry,...

G4

Theatre Severn

7 September 2018

It was so long ago 2004 in fact when G4 burst onto our screens coming second on series two of X-Factor. In that time G4 have been busy splitting, reforming and sorting out new personnel. However having done that they brought us a new genre, that of Cross-over, offering up classic pop songs as classical music and classical music was given...

Owen Lewis Productions Present

Lady Smock

September 2018

 

As a playwright I have always worked alone and I have never collaborated. I have obviously worked with others in the county but not in the writing. That has always for me been a solitary occupation.  At University one is expected to collaborate all the time and the support that one receives in those settings...
