“Blown away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Being slightly over being classed as "middle aged" we knew it was the "right era" but still a little trepidation in our minds as to what, exactly we were going to see.
"Excellent" doesn't really do it justice. Wit, humor, great songs a brilliant cast and a superb way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
As usual, we arrived at the Box Office just after 10am. and got Day tickets for £25.00. The seats had a partial limited view insofar as they were right at the front but...to be right up there - less than a foot away from the cast at times - made that a small price to pay!

See this show! Entertaining, full on and funny. The 2 hours went in a flash. Theatre is small, well ventilated and comfortable.

Lovely little theatre. Amazing show. Go for day seats and sit on the front row for £25. Really friendly and helpful staff. But be warned you will get covered in glitter

“Rock of ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Brilliant show, loved all the songs, good audience participation. Our first ever musical and because of this it won't be our last. We had very good seats on the middle with a perfect view of the stage, couldn't ask for more
