22nd Jan 15: Please tell me when Cinderella ballet tickets go on sale
User review by Jenny Eastop for Espresso (Drayton Arms Theatre, Inner London)
21st Jan 15: Espresso is a fascinating play that slowly draws you in through captivating story telling until the final emotionally explosive scenes that leave you stunned and emotionally drained. The production, on an almost bare stage, wisely lets the strength of the writing and the skill of the actors tell the story. The cast of two, Eleanora Russo and Niall Murray, switch effortlessly between a panoply of characters, each one brought vividly to life with no more than a hunch of the shoulder or an elegantly held cigarette. Under the skilful and detailed guidance of director Aaron Blackmon these characters build up layer upon layer of narrative to create a thought provoking and ultimately moving exploration of human life with all its needs and imperfections. The writing is powerful and engaging, the actors are excellent and have real chemistry, and the production hits all the right notes. I think this deserves a great deal more than this limited run and I hope it has the chance to be seen by a lot more people
User review by mandy o for The Circus of Horrors - The Night of the Zombie (Hull New Theatre, Hull)

User review by alison smith for Sleeping Beauty (Wigan Little Theatre, Wigan)
14th Jan 15: The show was awsome and nanna and pickles made the show thanks for a great evening
User review by jstewart for Jack and the Beanstalk (Theatre Royal, Plymouth)
22nd Dec 14: Somewhat disappointing. Took my granddaughters who couldnt make out what the young girl Apricot was singing and Chico cannot sing or act. This years Panto relied on the skill of established actors of Davro, Challis and Holland. Will definetely check out the cast next time as last year tgink the same girl had the lead and high pitch squeeky voice is not what you want to hear an nor is the song Chico time.
User review by tracey for Cinderella (William Aston Hall, Wrexham)
21st Dec 14: Amazing. We went last night (20.12.14). We had such a laugh, lots of ad lib and you could tell the cast were really enjoying themselves. Can't recommend it enough. Definitely 5 stars ***** Thank you x
User review by USER for Aladdin (New Victoria Theatre, Woking)

This site simply doesn't work. The ticketing area is flakey and unuseable! EDITOR RESPONSE: Actually the ticketing links on this page take you directly to ATG Tickets for this show and are working fine, they pop up a new window as you are going off site ... ATG are the primary supplier for this venue and show.
