1. Tourists from
all over the world will enjoy their time in London if they
plan a visit to one of the capital's famous musicals or
plays as an inbuilt part of their holiday in England. The
London stage scene has been a big success story for over
a hundred years and visitors will appreciate the programme
in London theatres, which has not changed for years.
2. Robert Sims is the brilliant new author of the
comedy play about student life in Scotland at the Round
House Theatre in Glasgow. Robert, who is only twenty four,
started to write the play immediately after leaving university.
He told our reporter that he couldn't write the play while
he was at university, because many of the characters in
it were his fellow students or university lecturers. The
play is also partly a musical with some very funny songs.
3. The new programme of plays at the Eastboume Winter
Garden Theatre contains a very varied and interesting variety
of productions. The summer holiday programme starts with
a French comedy, continues with the play "The Three
Sisters" by Chekhov and ends with the "Rocky Horror
Movie Show". I wonder how the conservative Eastboume
audiences will cope with this surprising mix.
4. The new winter season at the Hippodrome Theatre
is a big break with tradition. There are no musicals, no
comedies and no Agatha Chistie thrillers. The new management
is staging three Shakespeare plays and two plays by the
German playwright Bertolt Brecht, in addition to a very
modern pantomime, which doesn't have either a Prince Charming
or two ugly sisters. We wish the Hippodrome every success
in its efforts to bring culture to the masses.
5. Our winter programme of plays and musicals starts
on the first of December. We offer special rates to all
students and senior citizens and there are also very good
reductions for all theatregoers, who join our theatre club
and buy tickets for three or more performances in advance.
Theatre programmes with details of each performance and
the actors are also free for all members of the theatre
club, which is another big saving. Support your local theatre
again this season.
6. The long running soap opera "Green Wellies",
set in the rural south east of England is scheduled to end
in August. The directors of Channel 4 point to decreased
enthusiasm for the programme over the last year as the major
cause for this decision. Many viewers have complained about
the weak story lines and the poor acting of some of the
main characters. Also a lot of young people are not interested
anymore in hearing about agricultural topics.
7. The new boys' pop group "No Chance"
is scheduled to perform at the Liberty Theatre in Clacton.
This is part of their journey of England from Bognor in
the south to Grimsby in the north. The boys are in big demand
after the successful launch of their new CD "Mind over
Matter" and it is anticipated that the Clacton venue
will be a complete sell out. Buy your tickets now to be
sure of a seat.
