Episode 28: Paulus on Victoria Wood and his fabulous show 'Looking For Me Friend!'

3/2/2023
Paulus, AKA The Cabaret Geek joins us for a chat about his fabulous new show - Looking For Me Friend. The show, with 5 star reviews, is dedicated to legendary Victoria Wood with more than 20 of her songs from her incredible repertoire. Paulus talks about his life long adoration for Vic, as he calls her. He never met her, although nearly did, and - well,... you can listen to the story - he tells it better than us! Chatting from his home in London, and in the company of his cat, Paulus talks about the show in detail; what fans can expect, and how he and his colleague, have developed a perfect stage moment which captures so much of her talented songs and work..... Yes they'll be some of her much loved characters in there. Looking For Me Friend is no tacky copy-cat act, Paulus let's loose the show's content through his own personality and style - and the combination of his humour and addictive delivery makes this show a stand-out - for everyone to enjoy - you definitely don't need to know about Victoria Wood to see this show - but we guess you will know an awful lot about her, and the awesome Paulus, when it's over! ★★★★ 'If you are a fan of Wood, or simply feel the need for some uplifting, live entertainment, then this is a must see.'

Episode 25: Doug Rintoul on dark comedy play - DNA, and emerging talent from the region

1/5/2023
Douglas Rintoul talks about the black comedy with a dark heart - DNA (written by Dennis Kelly) - or as The Guardian quotes "sharp shocker of a play cleverly piles on the twists, as guilt and madness work their poison on group dynamics". Listen to Doug's fascinating views on this explosive play and how he is about to create a gripping show which hits the New Wolsey Stage from 2 - 9 Feb 2023. He says: “DNA is a special project for the New Wolsey Theatre, it’s my first production as Chief Executive/Artistic Director, it’s a rare outing of this top-notch play from one of our greatest writers, but more importantly it celebrates the best of East Anglia’s emerging talent. If a regional theatre doesn’t support the growth of its local ecology then it will see the loss of more talent from the industry, now more than ever."

Episode 23: Our fabulous 'Goldilocks' cast are back to chat again!

12/20/2022
In this episode, six of our lovely Goldilocks and the Three Bears cast came back to have another chat with us!! We caught up with them in the middle of a double show day to find out how the show has been going so far, some secrets from backstage, and their favourite things about being in a panto! We've got more (dreadful) Christmas cracker jokes too, as well as a little Christmas themed quiz for each of them - they definitely do not get competitive... Thanks again to the cast for giving us their time to record with us! Book your Panto tickets HERE. Book your Livestream Panto tickets HERE.

Episode 22: It's show week - 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' is here!

11/24/2022
In this podcast episode we talk to the incredible cast of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as well as sneaking in a quick chat with writer and director Pete Rowe! The cast give us a little insight into who they are and the characters they're playing, as well as how rehearsals have been going! We caught them at the very start of tech week as they begun prepping for the big opening later in the week - some of them had just seen the wonderful set by the incredibly talented Cleo Pettit for the first time so listen out for their reactions! We talk slapstick, silliness and song-lists as well as finding out just what it's like being inside the camel costume, or dromedary, as it must be known in this script! Stay tuned for some terrible Christmas cracker jokes, unpopular opinions on festive tunes and the big question that always comes around this time of year... is Die Hard a Christmas film?! A huge thank you to Pete and the cast for giving us their time during a busy tech week to record this episode!

Episode 21: Ramps on the Moon - Michèle Taylor MBE talks inclusion in theatre

11/10/2022
In this podcast episode we talk to Michèle Taylor MBE, Director for Change from Ramps on the Moon, about accessibility, inclusion, and elevating the presence of deaf and disabled people within the centre of the work in theatres. Whether it's backstage, on-stage or front of house, Michèle talks about the theatre industry still having a long way to go before it's fully accessible to everyone, everywhere. Michèle talks about her work as Director for Change with Ramps on the Moon, what that role means and her involvement with Agents for Change across different theatres. We talk about changing minds of those who perhaps are worried about finding things like captioning distracting, and how they can actually be a great inclusion for everyone and not just people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Michèle talks us through the differences between the social model of disability and the physical model of disability and how we can use the first to make sure that everyone is represented and accommodated for. A huge thank you to Michèle for recording this episode with us, and we can't wait to record more episodes with her in the future! You're all welcome to get involved with the New Wolsey Theatre Podcast! If you'd like to be a guest or have a questions for us, please just get in touch - we'd love to hear from you!
