Right away, Miss Babs

Intent on giving people a "lovely, happy night in the theatre" Victoria Wood revived her 1980s spoof soap opera, Acorn Antiques, as a musical of the same name, staged for the first time in 2005. Massively popular in the late eighties as part of the "Victoria Wood as seen on TV" series, this became an Olivier award-winning show with a tremendous cast including Julie Walters and Celia Imrie.

We are the only non- professional theatre in the Midlands and one of only two in the UK to have the rights to Acorn Antiques, The Musical!, and for The Crescent it has a special connection because Celia Imrie opened the new building in Sheepcote Street in 1998.
