The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 14 April 2011

We hear about the Three Minute Theatre—which began as a few evenings of three minute plays from local writers and actors and now has its own theatre space in Afflecks, Manchester—from one of its founders Victor Alexander, who tells us how the Three Minute Theatre came about and how to get involved as a writer, actor or audience member.

There are reviews of two brand new shows that have just opened in the north west.

The Demolition Man by Aelish Michael is a new play about the later years in the life of Bolton steeplejack and TV star Fred Dibnah at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton.

Ghost The Musical at the Opera House in Manchester has been adapted for the stage by the writer of the 1990 Hollywood blockbuster film that it was based on, Bruce Joel Rubin, with music by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard.
