Stick Man Live – Leicester Square Theatre 2023!

Stick Man Live – Leicester Square Theatre 2023! I’ve been reviewing Stick Man Live at the Leicester Square Theatre for over a decade and honestly, it never gets old. I’d not ever recommend something that I wouldn’t be prepared to pay for myself (as you know, I have been gifted my tickets to this show for work purposes) and hand on heart I’d pay for this one again and again. It might actually be my favourite piece of theatre full […]

Newsies – London!

Newsies – London! Newsies, not new by any stretch “new”, has been around since it became a Disney movie in 1992 depicting the true historical story of the 1899 New York newsboys strike. However, it is new to the London musical scene opening its doors in November last year where I was invited to the press opening and sadly couldn’t attend. Thankfully they invited me back and yesterday my musical theatre partner in crime (long time gal pal Anna) and […]

Goldilocks And The Three Bears – The Maddermarket 2022 Pantomime!

Goldilocks And The Three Bears – The Maddermarket 2022 Pantomime! Pantomime – a fairy tale story given a twist and a wiggle to bring entertainment for the whole family during the festive season. Traditionally the back bone of theatre it would carry takings which could see them through the whole year when otherwise bottoms on seats were not so prolific. Over time this staple of the theatrical calendar became its most important, not just for the profit making but because […]

Operation Save Santa At The Garage – Norwich!

Operation Save Santa At The Garage – Norwich! In typical me and my disorganised style I rocked up to the preview for All In Productions “Operation Save Santa” at The Garage in Norwich with quite the wrong children for the performance. You see, they are gifting us two this year, this one, which is geared up for 5-10 year olds, and a “My First” production (if you’ve been to their offerings before like the panto or Shakespeare then you’ll be […]

Goldilocks And The Three Bears At The Maddermarket Theatre Norwich!

Goldilocks And The Three Bears At The Maddermarket Theatre Norwich! For the second year running in Norwich there’s really only one pantomime you need to book, and that’s the Sound Idea’s Theatre Company offering at the historic Maddermarket Theatre. Last year’s Cinderella was a triumph with the best, worst baddie in all the land played by none other than my delicious friend Anna Goode who once again is treading the vintage boards of this perfectly charming independent theatre in not […]

Stick Man Live 2022!

Stick Man Live 2022! We’ve been to see Stick Man Live a LOT of times, but we would always, always, ALWAYS go back because we love it SO much! I remember going with friends when the big two were tiny and they said they could totally imagine they’d still be seeing this show even when the kids were grown up and didn’t want to go anymore. To be fair, I can’t imagine anyone growing out of it so I suspect […]

Little Manfred At The Polka Theatre – Wimbledon!

Little Manfred At The Polka Theatre – Wimbledon! It’s been many years since we went to the Polka Theatre, more’s the pity but I feel soon I shall have to rectify this. I used to take the big two when they were little all the time, not because Wimbledon was close to where we lived, far from it, but because it was always so absolutely excellent that it was worth the journey across London and venturing south of the river […]
