Concord College A Celebration of Peace: Dance and Drama from around the World Theatre Severn 17 November 2018 Concord…..Meaning “Hearts Together.” (Miriam Webster) There are still some Salopians who don’t know about the fantastic work that takes place every day in the little village of Acton Burnell.

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 and scrutinised the effect...

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 although the four vocalists visited...

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, it’s peaceful doctrines and its...

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  the contemporary twist...

Sasha Regan’s All Male Iolanthe Theatre Severn 19th July -21 July (Saturday Matinee 2.30pm) Well it would appear that Sasha Regan’s all male cast have done it again. After delighting Shrewsbury audiences a couple of years ago with HMS Pinnafore they have returned with Iolanthe. It is a theatrical delight. If you can imagine Iolanthe being predominately a love story it is hilarious to see the...

Get Your Wigle On Whistle Down The Wind Theatre Severn Thurs 12th July to Saturday 14th (Saturday Matinee 2.30) It takes a very brave company and a confident cast to take on what is probably one of the lesser known musicals from the pen of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Whistle Down the Wind. Get your Wigle on again fulfilled their objectives and left a fair sized theatre audience happy and pleased as was...

The Elvis Years Theatre Severn 6th July 2018   Tonight Theatre Severn was absolutely packed to the rafters and beyond, something of quality was about to happen and the crowd waited with an excited buzz waiting to see their hero, Elvis Presley, well Mario Kombou but that’s a close to Elvis Presley as we could ever be. This is not a tribute show, it’s not a tribute act this is much, much more. It’s...

On Sunday 1st July, I visited Theatre Severn to watch the students from Shrewsbury's Stagecoach perform in Disney’s, Beauty and the Beast Junior. The story that is set in a provincial town in France, features a bright young heroine named Belle, her handsome and loutish suitor Gaston, a cursed young prince and an enchanted castle. Theatre Severn was the perfect venue to host this spectacle...
