Nina Jervis writes on last night's performance of School of Rock.
Our report of last night's staging of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert.
Glitter hairspray, sequins, tassels and pom poms - no, not my walk in wardrobe - it's Priscilla, Queen of the Desert at the Cliffs Pavilion!
Once is a stunningly romantic tale following the story of a Dublin guitarist who meets and falls in love with a Czech woman. Together, with help from a few of their friends, they create a demo CD of his original music in the aim of getting him a record deal.
I have a confession to make. I've never been to a Cliffs panto before. I used to go to the Palace Theatre pantomime as a child, but it was very lowkey, usually with local performers, and I don't remember much about them.
Last night, we went out on a date with difference. Not only did we get to see the incredible 'real circus made for theatre' in Cirque Berserk at The Cliffs Pavilion, but we also got to share it with a very excited seven year old!
The Summer Youth Project is a fantastic initiative inviting young people from all over Southend to audition, rehearse and perform a show during the start of the school holidays and this show is one not too be missed!
The long running Agatha Christie classic The Mousetrap is showing this week at the Palace Theatre and I was privileged to see it on it's strong opening night on Monday.
Currently showing at The Cliffs Pavilion we bring you a review with a difference .......
A fabulous selection of buns were on display at The Cliffs Pavilion last night at the opening night of Calendar Girls. A film, a play and now a musical, this remarkable tale is inspired by a true story, penned by Tim Firth, with music by Take That’s Gary Barlow.
If you loved one of the most acclaimed British films ever made from 1997 then the stage version of The Full Monty, currently showing at The Cliffs Pavilion won't disappoint.
The Picture of Dorian Gray at the Palace Theatre begins with a sparse set of distressed walls and decayed decor, and we go straight into dialogue that's, of course, Oscar Wilde - so it's peppy, zingy and immediately compelling
Alan Bennett’s ‘The Habit of Art’ is currently running at The Palace Theatre until Saturday 24th November. Here's our review!
I am taking in a deep breath before starting this review. It’s not so much that DIRTY DANCING, currently on a national tour at Cliff’s Pavilion, wasn’t entertaining, it really was, but was it for the right reasons?
The internationally acclaimed stage sensation, Jersey Boys is working its way back to Southend!
Jackson’s legacy now lives on in Thriller Live! Direct from the West End, it’s billed as a spectacular concert, celebrating the career of the arguably one of the world’s greatest entertainer! Read our review here
If you're familiar with red days and green days, weigh-ins and meal replacement shakes, or people telling you to "just drink a glass of water if you feel hungry", there will be wry nods aplenty for you at Fat Friends the Musical, which is showing this week at the Cliffs Pavilion.
Well, I have to admit, I am still tingling after last night’s performance of the Sunset Boulevard at Southend Cliffs Pavilion. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award®-winning show is darkly intense and completely mesmerising, thanks to its incredible cast and staging.
