Ive hardly been in this week. I have had a full weeks entertainment - and it only cost me £15!
First up was a trip to the cinema to see the remake of "True Grit" . I managed to get 4 free tickets for us (from www.seefilmfirst.co.uk via Moneysavingexpert sight). Usually the free tickets are for chickflick/romcom type movies, so the boys were highly delighted when this weeks tickets were for a Western. Hubby didn't think it would be any where near as good as the original, but he was wrong. It was really good. The acting is superb, the cinematography is great and Matt Damon looks so tasty!
Next up was a trip to my very local theatre - The Academy Theatre - at Birdwell. This is a great little theatre that they made out of a frozen food warehouse. It has taken off big style. The level of acting and singing that the company produce is equally as good as any I have seen at larger theatres. I went with my WI group to see "La Cage aux Folles" which was a superb play about a transvestite night club in Cannes. All the male actors were from the Barnsley area and had to be waxed to within an inch of their lives!!! They were superb and I really struggled to tell the boys from the girls! Cost £10
And last but by no means least was my sons schools production of "Grease" (he wasnt in it, but I knew a lot of the ones that were). The school has produced some great musicals over the years and this was up there with them. The acting and singing was spot on, and they had their own orchestra made up of very talented pupils and members of staff. School concerts still bring a tear to my eye! I am such a Jess. Cost £5
All in all a very lovely weeks entertainment.
