The Colour House Theatre’s debut scratch night kicked off with five new pieces of writing. A wide variety of topics and a diverse range of cast, directors and writers made up a night of comedy, tragedy and great entertainment.
This cult movie-cum-musical is a smash hit with those who don’t take themselves too seriously – and who appreciate that same quality in musical theatre. Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein is outrageously funny and devilishly naughty.
All of Abba’s greatest hits are brought together to form a romantic tale of a chaotic love triangle in Mamma Mia the musical. On stage in the West End since 1999, it’s the ‘honey, honey’ sweet tones of Abba’s music which keeps this production going.
Face full of spots, chin smothered in ketchup and an unsettling feeling that the B.O on the bus belongs to you – Tamar Broadbent kicks off her show with a side splitting musical number, ‘Having an Ugly Day’.
Another multirole play production at the Edinburgh Fringe, this time the star is simply a sponge. Bruce the Sponge and his network of porous friends are brought to life with an extensive range of character voices and a pair of white gloved hands.
