Saw Mario as Elvis last night. Was a good night out, He does a brilliant job as Elvis plenty of songs and back ground pictures of Elvis really makes the show. Would definitely recommend seeing Mario. Even walks round the theatre handing out scarfs.

The case of the frightened lady murder mystery was absolutely excellent. Starring John Partridge, the plot and acting was superb. The venue good with comfortable seats.

Because it's a cosy auditorium, I have found, that all the seats without any note of a restricted view have been fine, even right at the back.
