Brace yourself for a Bobby Ball comedy

A new play written by and starring comedy legend Bobby Ball comes to Stamford’s Corn Exchange this month with an all-star cast including his sparring partner Tommy Cannon, Stu Francis, Johnnie Casson and Ann-Marie.

The Dressing Room gives the audience a sneak preview into life behind the scenes. Set backstage in the dressing room each act waits their turn to be called to the stage.

One by one they make their performance before returning to the hub of activity in the dressing room where gossip and misunderstandings continue.

The audience gets to see what goes on both sides of the curtains and what a performer goes through in the dressing room.

Bobby says: “I am really excited about doing the play and working with such great people and I am sure the audience will love it.

“It is part variety and part play so I like to call it a playriety. The audience get to watch each star perform their own variety act as well as see the things that happen backstage that a audience don’t usually see, the gossip, what we think of the audience, how we think the show is going…and lots more.”

Tickets for the February 28 show (3pm) from the Corn Exchange Theatre box office on 01780 766455.
