T.Rextasy

Theatre Severn

31st March 2018

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...

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...

Son of a Preacher Man

If you are going to watch a show that contains nothing but Dusty Springfield songs you may be tempted to think that maybe somewhere along the line the show may include something about Dusty. Perhaps  about her early life  or maybe her time with the Springfields or her amazing solo...

The Blues Band

Theatre Severn

1st March 2018

If one was to ever talk about a band that is at the very top of their game and have been since 1979, you would be struggling to come up many names. One name you could come up with however and without doubt you would be right, would be The Blues Band.
