If you get a chance to see the production of 'To Kill a Mocking Bird' you are in for a real treat. The stage set and props though simple, were amazing. The story is a classic and this production did the original film proud. The cast were superb and the whole production was excellent. We left the theatre feeling emotionally... More

The comic timing was superb, and the audience 'participation' extremely funny. There was a technical fault which brought the curtain down for a good 15 minutes, but the 4... More

There is a lovely bar to have a drink before and the show was great. I can't wait to go again I would recommend... More

This show was fantastic! What an entertainer, 16 costume changes in three hours on stage. Hilarious and just a little bit naughty!
