Long Description:
Theatre Severn - Shrewsbury, County of Shropshire.
We caught a show called 'Avenue Q' an adult muppet show, Its one of the few shows I have stayed awake for the whole show. Very entertaining a good laugh & good story.

"The Theatre Severn a purpose built performance space on Frankwell Quay that opened to the public in 2009. The main auditorium seats 638, over three levels, and features a busy schedule of music, theatre and comedy, alongside the more intimate Walker Theatre, Dance Studio, exhibition space and The Haydn Smith Room for hospitality." text Source; (visit link)

"Shrewsbury has developed as a 'destination town' and draws people in from the West Midlands, South Wales & Mid Wales (The Lucky Welsh using their free Train & Bus passes) who come to enjoy the culture and leisure opportunities. The need for a new theatre in Shrewsbury was first mooted around 45 years ago and the project came very close to being approved with various sites and building designs being put forward. The turning point came with the success of the Music Hall over the last decade which proved that the audience had outgrown the venue and that the staff in place had the experience and expertise to deliver a new theatre for Shropshire. The re-opening of the Old Market Hall in January 2004 re-enforced this with the venue proving a resounding success. On the 26th September 2005 Shrewsbury & Atcham Borough Council committed to build a New Entertainment Venue in Shrewsbury. Construction began in November 2006. The architects for the project are Austin Smith Lord and the Theatre has been built by Wilmot Dixon." Text Source & See more at: (visit link)
