Reviews - The Drowsy Chaperone - Shropshire Star

"An older man sits alone in his armchair looking through his favourite records. When he pulls one out of its old paper sleeve and places it on the turntable, his lonely apartment is transformed into the stage for one of his favourite musicals. Dazzling smiles, fancy costumes and cheery show tunes burst forth and the performance of The Drowsy Chaperone begins.

The Drowsy Chaperone is being performed by Mad Cow Productions at The Theatre Severn's Walker Theatre. It offers audiences a taste of 1920's musicals within a comedy play. Robert Hinton, who plays 'the man in the chair' sits by the side of the stage interacting with the audience and narrating them through his favourite musical.

Theo Millward plays the character of Robert Martin, the musical's boy in love. He presents a cheeky chappie with a beaming toothpaste smile impressing all with his tap dancing skills. Leading lady Lauren Bellingham also shines as Janet Van De Graff.

Light relief was provided by Adolpho, played by James Pinches, who entertained the crowd with his Latin-lover accent and comical 'ladies-man' persona.

The two-act performance ran smoothly with a really professional feel, from the actors on stage as well as the musicians hidden behind the scenes."
