Gilbert O’Sullivan

Theatre Severn

29 April 2018

The one important factor that one picks up from watching a Gilbert O’Sullivan Show is how quickly you notice the relevance of the performance and how much it deserves to be sitting where it is, and that equates to the fifty years Gilbert has been writing, singing and recording  his songs to an ever so grateful public.

Theatre Severn

3rd-7th April (Incl. Matinees)

Throughout common parlance we like to use well known couplings to make our point for example, one could cite Fish and Chips or Laurel and Hardy etc. When it comes to musical theatre after Gilbert and Sullivan we British were struggling for a couple to believe in, until in the 1970’s it happened; the coupling of Tim Rice...

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...

Shrewsbury Amateur Operatic Society


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...

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.

With the stunning vocals from not just Paul Jones but from Gary Fletcher...
