1, GOOD NEWS FOR COMEDY LOVERS

Award winning comedian Russell Howard is set to come to the region on his first live tour for three years.

In this new show, the star and creator of the award-winning hit TV show, Russell Howard’s Good News, promises us more of his trademark brand of upbeat and razor-sharp comedy.

Wonderbox follows his sell-out, thrice-extended, 2011 UK tour, which included a sell-out Motorpoint Arena Sheffield date.

Russell was catapaulted into mainstream comedy after becoming a regular panellist on Mock The Week, and since then has seen his popularity.

This is Russell’s biggest tour to date and sees him back on stage, on-top of the world, doing what he does best.

2, MUSICAL MAGIC

Rediscover much-loved musical, The Sound of Music, which is presented by the Doncaster Amateur Operatic Society and comes to Cast this week.

How do you solve a problem like Maria? That’s the question for the nuns of Nonberg Abbey. Their solution is to despatch the high-spirited postulant as governess to the seven children of a naval captain. But this is Austria in 1939, the Nazis have occupied and the prospect of war draws near.

A timeless and enthralling family classic, undoubtedly one of the most famous penned by Rodgers and Hammerstein, the iconic score includes Edelweiss, My Favourite Things, Climb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Mi and The Sound Of Music.

Known for his appearances on Stand Up For The Week, BBC1’s Live At The Apollo and Dave’s Argumental, Seann is a charming and charismatic natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.
