The Pitmen Poets, Walker Theatre, Wednesday 30th November 2019 If you were around pre-Nineteen Eighty Four you will be very much aware of how mining and mining communities were the very backbone to our existence.

Nett UK Presents Motown. How sweet it is. Theatre Severn 27th September 2019 Many good things came out of Nineteen Fifty Nine. A good year for Theatre Reviewers I have heard. However the salient point being that it is the year that Berry Gordy created the Motown label. In doing he gave songs and Artistes who will stay indelibly locked into our minds for ever more. Tonight’s audience proved that....

Respect…The Aretha Franklin Songbook Theatre Severn Tuesday 17th September 2019 This is a real pot-pouri of a show, a huge mixture with some bits of it smelling sweeter than others. So The Aretha Franklin Songbook now contains classics such as Hey Jude and Bridge Over Troubled Water? If they are in there I wonder if Ms. Franklin knows, because it was a huge surprise for the audience that had...

Balletboyz Theatre Severn Saturday 14th September 2019     Straight from the West End and following a revue at Sadler’s Wells, we welcome the return of the Balletboyz with their strikingly challenging pieces “THEM “and “US”.

American logo’s for Beer, Country stars pictures and musical instruments were painted onto the backdrop to present a nice little venue for the show that was about to begin. Concerned that the show might be a little...

Shropshire Drama Company Flare Path Walker Theatre Wednesday 26th June –Saturday 29th June From the pen of Terence Rattigan, “Flarepath”, is a story of love and deceit in a wartime setting. It’s a big show and has been with us since the first performance back in a darker world where the end of the war seemed miles away in 1942. It’s a sobering thought when one thinks about the privations, the...
