Beg, borrow or steal to get a ticket to this show in this beautiful gem of theatre. Mame at the Hope Mill Theatre is well worth a trip to Manchester.
Directed by Mark Giesser and the inspiration for the Peter Sellers’ comedy The Mouse That Roared – where a small European country is at war with the United States – Strike Up The Band is a lesser-known Gershwin musical with a satirical edge.
Occasionally bewildering and frequently ridiculous, Strike Up The Band is nevertheless always great fun.

It may be a cliché, but Edinburgh is definitely “alive with the Sound of Music” once again as the classic musical returns to the Playhouse.
9 to 5 the musical is based on the popular film and features an uplifting selection of musical theatre numbers, an excellent showcase for the actresses taking the lead roles. This particular production of the show has been produced and directed by Joe Hodges and it is without doubt the best incarnation I have seen.
Director Joseph Hodges and casting director Harry Blumenau have really done the business in selecting a terrific trio to lead their show.
Pippa Winslow plays Violet in a new production of Dolly Parton hit 9 to 5 The Musical, which runs Upstairs at the Gatehouse Theatre from 30 August to 1 October 2017. I chatted to her about the show.
I have seen a variety of incarnations of The Sound of Music, from the ever popular film, to a selection of touring and regional productions and I also completed a hat trick at the London Palladium during Connie Fisher’s reign as Maria.
While performing in the UK tour of THE SOUND OF MUSIC at the Swansea Grand Theatre, Tammy Davies and Pippa Winslow double up for a late night cabaret benefiting local charity Swansea Mind on 25 August 2016. With songs from WICKED, PHANTOM, CITY OF ANGELS and many more, this is an evening not to be missed.
