End of 2018 report

Gone are the days of one show or one venue to rule them all! Obviously I will still happily make repeat visits to shows – or follow them around on tour – if I really enjoy them, but variety has very much been the spice of life in 2018. That covers venue as much as […]

Coming up in 2018…

Well, we’re all still here… The big red button hasn’t been pushed yet and theatre is better than ever! I’m starting as I hope to go on, and making sure I have the odd night off here & there – as much as I like being busy and seeing as much as possible, there were […]

Meet Team B: Ryan O’Donnell

Guest writer: @Helzbels Team B Roulette is my personal term for the occasions on which the Sunny Afternoon stage is graced by a seemingly random selection of the show’s enormously talented and versatile understudies. Very occasionally, a freak combination of cast holidays and illness can mean that the understudies get to perform in roles which […]

Team B week

I may have mentioned before that Sunny Afternoon’s understudies (known to us as Team B) are proper heroes of mine. So far I’ve written ‘The show must go on’ blog posts parts 1, 2 & 3. A long overdue 4th instalment should be with you fairly soon too… They even featured on my Sunny Advent […]
