Theatre Review// The Hospital Player 215th Production

From the moment the curtain opens on The Hospital Player’s 215th production, “Caught in the Net”, the laughter begins and, apart from the interval, it continues until the end. This Ray Cooney farce, first performed 17 years ago still retains it’s ability to amuse and entertain when performed so ably by this locally renowned theatrical troupe.

Review// Miles Jupp @ The Plowright

I went along to the Plowright theatre on Saturday night to watch comedian Miles Jupp, who has previously appeared on many TV comedy shows, one being Live At The Apollo.

It was a full house for the comedian with every seat filled with a few late comers causing people to rise from their seats, which was a little distracting at first.

Theatre // The Hospital Players – “Lucky Sods”

The Hospital Players are a local amateur dramatic society. They put on great shows usually with a lot of laughs along the way. So why not check out their latest show. You can also read previous HP show reviews here.

Lucky Sods

By John Godber

Tuesday 8th – Saturday 12th September 2015

7.30 pm at The Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe

Morris and Jean never seriously expect to win the National Lottery. When they do, their lives are irredeemably changed – but for better or worse? Can money buy happiness? Is enough ever enough? John Godber addresses these questions with his customary wit and compassion in this sharply observed, brutally funny play.

Guest Review // Pop Factor (Written by 7yr Old Lexie)

downloadThis review was written by 7 year old Lexie Wilson, who we sent with her daddy to watch the touring musical sensation “Pop Factor” at The Plowright Theatre.

29/05/2015
“The singing was very good and my favourite song was One Direction. 
The bad thing was a very bright light and it hurt my eyes.
I sang all of the songs but there was only one I did not know so I didn’t sing to that one.  My Dad sang some songs with me too.

A man showed us where we were sitting and the lasers were really cool in the smoke.
The dancers and singers all came off the stage and danced and sang next to us, it was exciting.
They were called Ellie Self, Conner Down, Lori-Suzanne and Karmelle, Charlie Royce And Sinead Mathius.  My favourite one was Ellie Self. I like the sparkly pink trousers and sparkly shoes. Ellie was wearing the best costume but the costumes were all really fun.
If you get a programme then at the end all of the dancers sign their names in the book and ask you your favourite song and if you liked the show.
Have a nice time if you go next year, what will you think is good or bad and what songs will you like?  What will you feel like if you do go and if you do go I hope you have a nice time like me.”


Many thanks to Lexie and her dad for reviewing the show.
