What a vibrant and incredible musical! It was all so uplifting and really brightened a grey February evening. It also couldn’t have come at a better time for me – I could always do with a pre-Spring boost. If you could too, here’s why you should see it!
After being invited to see Shrek the Musical, I approached the evening with high hopes of reliving the magic of the DreamWorks film. What would the play include or remove? What would it add? How would it feel to see when the classic is so well-loved? These are some ogre-sized boots for it to fill!

It’s not often that I am left speechless after seeing a play. Not a lot can move me nowadays but after seeing Metamorphosis it left me in a deep and thoughtful mood. So much so that it’s taken me just over a day to truly reflect on its impact on me!
I always like to take the opportunity to reflect at this time of year and see how I got on with my NY resolutions last year, since I usually make them and then never look at them again. So, of course, I am making some more today too!
Those of you who are prone to poor mental health, this title will perhaps stir some recognition for you. It’s unfortunate but this is where I am right now…

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely feeling the effects of winter! It’s a struggle to get out of bed sometimes isn’t it? Well, if you only have ONE outing this winter, make it the Belgrade Theatre pantomime. This year, they’re putting on Cinderella – and as always, it’s the best!
I’ve seen so many debates online amongst the community about what makes you an “authentic” witch and what doesn’t, so I’ve decided to write down my feelings in an attempt to reassure you and challenge you… take it as you will!
Bram Stoker’s Dracula is a tale that has been captivating audiences for over a century. I’ve seen so many adaptations and offshoots of the classic vampire tale that of course, when Dracula: Mina’s Reckoning came to the stage at the Belgrade, I had to go and see it!
Hallelujah, what an absolute hit! This musical will get you up out of your seat and dancing along the whole way through. The stage was vibrant, the dancing was spot on, the cast were so talented and the songs were all so sing-along worthy!
I recently attended a performance of Phantasmagoria – a new production at the Belgrade Theatre. I had high hopes for the show; with a name like Phantasmagoria and the promise of a ‘gripping psychological horror’, what could be better for the spooky season?
