The Playhouse Theatre, Weston-Super-Mare Dirty Dusting, Review

The seriously retro set featuring ancient computers, telephones out of the ark and rickety desks tells you this comedy is set way back in the age before political correctness struck and we weren’t allowed to have fun. As the story goes three lady office cleaners (all of a certain age) face dismissal from their miserable […]

Dick Whittington, Playhouse Theatre, Weston Review

Dick Whittington as staged at the Playhouse Theatre is most definitely a Pantomime and a half; going to see it is like being battered by a non-stop fun machine with everything you ever wanted from a pantomime and double it. Linda Lusardi is the effortlessly glamorous and deeply evil King Rat; the boos and hisses […]

The story revolves around Emerald Storm, a club famous for Irish dancing that is doing fine until a troupe […]

Roman Holiday, Theatre Royal Bath Review

The classic film Roman Holiday which made an international star of Audrey Hepburn has been newly adapted for the stage and takes to the boards as a dazzling musical with a cast of eighteen. The story is charming; Ann, a young princess, visiting Rome gives her chaperone the slip and meets Joe, an American journalist […]

Twist And Shout, Weston Playhouse Review

This show was a cracking way to spend a couple of hours going down memory lane and reliving your best life in the 60s and 70s through the marvellous music created back then, and still going strong today. Short skirts, long hair, tight trousers; they were the order of the day along with a charming […]
