The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 11 November 2010

Actress Rachel Bell talks to The Theatre Show about playing the role of Hyacinth Bucket in the stage version of Roy Clarke's popular TV sitcom Keeping Up Appearances, soon coming to Buxton Opera House. She also tells us about her experiences as a founder member of Mike Bradwell's original Hull Truck Theatre Company.

Tom Thistleton tells us about Heald Green Theatre Company's amateur production of Tim Firth's Flint Street Nativity and about the fun they are all having in rehearsals as adults playing young children.

There is a special feature on Christmas shows--amateur and professional--as well as some news about an averted casting crisis at Wilmslow Guild, acting workshops with Manchester's Library Theatre Company, a chance for young actors to meet and get advice from Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey and much more.
