SHOWS SECTION NEWS & INFORMATION

NEWS THIS WEEK:
Foxfinder - starring actors from mainstream TV shows, such as Game of Thrones and Call the Midwife.
The above play could be available with a 2 course meal at Café Rouge for just £10 on top of the ticket! Please let me know if you would be interested in that.

SHOWS/EVENTS I WILL BE INVESTIGATING:
A Saturday matinee at Mill at Sonning - probably Guys & Dolls
Songs for Nobodies

UPDATES:
NOTE: We are testing a slightly new format for the Shows page to cut down on the amount of words, I will provide a link to further information about the event/show as provided by the agent/theatre etc., please let me have your feedback so we can decide if the approach is right.
Also, I will remove shows once the booking is closed, but you can still see what is planned on the calendar...always worth asking as I may still be able to get tickets!

Note: On some events where tickets maybe limited and we are over subscribed we will instigate a ballot for the tickets.

Note: We may have to set a cut-off in which we only proceed if we sell 6 or more tickets for any show.

Theatre "extras"
We tried a "Red Package" offering at an Ambassador theatre for Mary Stuart, which gave access to a lounge for pre-theatre drink & nibbles (included) and for use at the interval. This was well received, so I will be looking to do it again.

Feedback & Reviews:
Feedback on TINA the MUSICAL:
Packed with energy and all the music you love you can't help but tap your feet. The story takes you through the heartache of hard times up to Tina making it bigger than ever. A musical masterpiece with lots of laughs thrown in.

Feedback on CHESS:
Hi Paul,
I just wanted to say thanks for getting such great seats for the superb production of Chess. I felt privileged to have a seat in this short 5 week run. The staging was innovative with lots of historical video on the screens to give the production context. The cast was very special, Michael Ball as exceptional as always, such a lovely voice. And Tim Howar, seen more often as co-front man for Mike and The Mechanics, brought a flavour of rock star to his part. Cassidy Janson fresh from playing Carole King in Beautiful, stepped into Elaine Pages shoes with great confidence, delivering "I know him so well" along with Alexander Burke in her own style.
A wonderful evening out.
Many Thanks 


 
Checkout this feedback on KILLER JOE:
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the Killer Joe tickets last night, not only was the play absolutely gripping and brilliant, I got to meet the main man after the show. I have been a fan since I was 15 so it literally was a dream come true that I got to meet him. And not just that, I am a massive Gavin & Stacey fan and I also got to meet the Dave Coaches - Steffan Rhodri.

Alice Howland is stubborn, clever and driven – a professional at the top of her game. But, diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 50, she is compelled to confront her new reality and draw on her resilience to remain independent for as long as possible.
Starring Sharon Small with a spellbinding performance as Alice, alongside Eva Pope, Martin Marquez, Mark Armstrong, Ruth Ollman, Micah Balfour and Anna Andresen, this tender and touching play is a unique insight into the experience of a woman fighting to maintain her identity as her world changes.
