Newbury Youth Theatre - Robbie Williams... Who's He?
2nd to 3rd August 2002.
From the Newbury Weekly News.
Another winner on their hands!
'ROBBIE WILLIAMS... WHO'S HE?', performed by Newbury Youth Theatre, at The Corn Exchange, on Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3
Take a bored, ignored teenager, obsessed with fame and Robbie Williams, a dull suburban family (a cross between the Royle family and the Slaters in 'EastEnders' transported to Newbury), and a failing magazine trying to boost its circulation by running a 'Pop Babe' competition (the decline set in after the topless grannies feature bombed), and you have the plot of a cracking new comedy by Caroline Reader, presented by the senior wing of Newbury Youth Theatre.
and this is Robin Strapp's report from the Fringe.
From the edge
The Newbury Youth Theatre have now arrived in Edinburgh with their show 'Robbie Williams... Who's He?' The 'advance guard' has already been there for a week taking in the shows and sussing out the competition. Director ROBIN STRAPP sends his first letter from the world's biggest Fringe Festival.
It's feisty frivolous, fun and frankly fabulous; it's Festival time in Edinburgh and the biggest celebration of the arts in the world has opened with a bang! The weather was wonderful for the Festival Cavalcade, a three-mile procession of floats, pipe bands and performers, watched by thousands of visitors and residents who applauded enthusiastically at the spectacle.
