Lovely old theatre. Well done to cast of 9 to 5. Very entertaining. Talented performers.Would have given 5 stars if there were a few more ladies toilets!
Loved the amateur showing of the Grand Duke. Disappointed only that there were no sausage rolls as my daughter had hoped. My son had a lovely relaxing time. Do think the foyer needs attention. It was crowded with people who just blocked the way rather than moving out of the main pathways. If there is nothing on in the downstairs room, open it up as a waiting area for people to meet up and chat. Nobody knows when a fire emergency alarm can go off. In public places fire safety should always be upper most in planning.
