    I didn't know that MFS had sung on The Chicken Song, or could even sing for that matter - you learn something new every day. Did you see him on Mr Bean in Room 426? - I almost feel for any actor who has played the straight man to Bean.

    I have just written to the Bournemouth Pavilion with regards to see Fame the Musical on Friday 30th August 2019 - I am certain that the tickets could be making their way in the post in the next week.

    Then there is the hotel and travelling situation to sort out - I have still got over four months before it happens.

    These last few days we’ve watched the mini stage musicals of Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid at Disney , Florida ... Do they count ?

    I have just sent a cheque to the Sunderland Empire for a copy of the programme of Fame the Musical (the cast have been up there this week) - I suppose it will give me a preview of what I will probably see when it gets to Bournemouth.

    When (or if) I get to see them on stage with my own eyes in Bournemouth in August, I will get a copy of their programme at the Pavilion and compare the two - I assume that although the details in the centre about the performance are the same, the only main differences are the local advertising and the local theatre logos and What's On details. It would be great to compare them both!

    Different personalities

    I rarely go to concerts.... Incubus and Metallica in the last 5 years or more ..

    I like to know what songs they are gonna play as bands seem to have a set play list with 3 or 4 (sometimes more) tracks that change around each gig .
    I ‘like’ all their songs but I do have favourites tracks so when I know they’re gonna play loads of favourites I can relax a little .. ..

    They don't really do theatres as far as I know, but I do know of some websites that list them. What I would like is to see what all the theatres around the country are showing on a certain date, and although a few websites give details of What's On listings, they don't put them all on the same page at once.
