The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 7 June 2012

This week we have reviews of a local production and a book.

The production is a revival of Jim Cartwright's play with music The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, directed by Elizabeth Newman at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton.

The book is called Children in Theatre by Jo Hawes and is aimed at children who would like to perform in professional theatre and their parents and written by someone who has been a children's casting director for top West End and touring shows for the last 17 years.

We have a brief look at a couple of local festivals which are about to start and which feature theatre productions: the Flare Weekender in Manchester and the Sale Festival at Waterside Arts Centre.
