Very excited to be going to see LOSERVILLE on Saturday at the Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds.  


This is a new musical by Elliot Davis and James Bourne (inspired by his Son of Dork album Welcome to Loserville).  Loserville is directed by Stephen Dexter and choreographed by Nick Winston.  The  producers are West Yorkshire Playhouse, Kevin Wallace First Act! and Youth Music Theatre UK.


The cast includes Lil' Chris (Rock School), Gareth Gates (Pop Idol), Charlotte Harwood (Legally Blonde), Eliza Hope Bennett (Inkheart), and Aaron Sidwell (Eastenders).

Loserville is set in 1971:  Michael Dork may be a computer geek but he's invented something that could change the world. He's also discovered girls: a prospect (almost) as exciting as his love of binary.
Holly is the girl: she has looks and brains and wants to be the first woman in space - well, this is 1971! But will she want Michael? Eddie wants a fast ride to the top and doesn't care who gets trampled along the way. Leia just wants Eddie. Michael's friends are all set to change the course of history, fashion and dating - in no particular order, but just as soon as possible, especially the dating bit.


The reviews have been fabulous:

"A Bright Bouncy book-show"
The Guardian

"Rocking, Rollicking, poster-bright, high energy fun"
The Observer

"A brilliant company of vibrant young talent"
The Stage

"A tidal wave of kinetic energy"

Live at the Hippodrome

The Stage is set at the Hippodrome Matcham Room


I was lucky enough to get invited to see the wonderful Tony Christie  "Live at the Hippodrome" on Monday night.  It was a really spectacular evening in a great venue.  This is just what London needs!!  Soon to be stompin' on the Hippodrome stage will be Julian Ovenden and also the burlesque queen Miss Polly Rae.

The Hippodrome is right by Leicester Square tube so very easy to get to.
