Just to let you know that a wonderful production of Romeo & Juliet opens next Friday 8th. Feb. at the Barn Theatre. Details on our website.
Would be good if you could include it on your blog please,
We went to see Whistle Down The Wind last night at the Library Theatre, staged by the Griffin Players. It was brilliant, better than some West End musicals I’ve seen.
Well directed, the acting and singing were excellent, American accents convincing, (especially the children), and a very ingenious set with clever use of the space. The special effects were good with effective use of the lighting.
I would urge anyone to go and see it, if they can get a ticket. Last night tonight, 15th.
I’m sure the Griffin Players did a good job. The main problem as I see it is that the theatre management seem to have given up on shows for grown-ups. In the days of previous managements, (Roy Darby, Janet Clemitson, Doc Watson etc) there was always something on and so local people got into the habit of going to the Library Theatre. Now you’re lucky to find the place unlocked and not in darkness in the evenings! All that’s left are the amateurs that can afford to book the place and I think that’s now down to about three per year!
Come on Library Theatre Management! No one ever filled a theatre by not booking in shows!
I’m one of Paul McMullen’s oldest friends and organising a tribute evening to him at St Albans Arena on Monday September 9th starting at 7pm. I’m told you knew Paul from when he worked at the Arena and I wondered if you could perhaps call/email me about the tribute? I’m after anecdotes, stories etc and also any archive of him – promoting his shows…? Do contact me. Many thanks. Edward

I know you can’t flag them all on your list Ernie but I had to give these two a mention. On October 3rd and 4th, unusual and heart felt dance and puppetry show Headcase (‘A very beautiful and moving show’ Total Theatre); and the following Monday 7th new writing from award-winning Stllpoint Theatre, Moon Project (‘Powerful, highly compelling compelling and genuinely funny’ Oxford Daily Info ****). Tickets are £10 and £8 for striking new work that will tickle the imagination.
I’m the press officer for the Company of Ten in St Albans, and I was just wondering if you could provide an email address where we can send press releases and other information relating to our upcoming shows?
Many thanks in advance
Hope you’re well!

All the best,
Sorry Natalie, just going through old comments on the TheatreBlog and realised that I’d miss yours! Yes, I’m always interested to hear about HLOS. So maybe you can email me with any press releases in good time for future shows.
Sorry about missing your message!
I have my comedy series coming out on radio 4 on 29th April. I really want to promote it as much as possible. Do you know who I should contact at BBC 3 counties to do an interview? Is judi still covering things? Cheers Alex Lowe
Your contact details have been given to us by another WI group, and I wondered whether you would be able to come and give a talk to our ladies? We are in Hargrave Northamptonshire and the date available is July 12 2017.
Not sure what aspect of your work you would talk about, but we are open to suggestions. I was told you gave a very enjoyable talk as a children’s entertainer, but perhaps we could discuss this.
Hope to hear from you.
Hello Judith, I’m sorry you didnt get an instant reply from me, I dont see the messages on the blog as often as I should! I would be very pleased to talk to your members if we can find a date.
