  • REVIEW: The Boy in the Dress

    The RSC’s new musical has it all - David Walliams' magic storytelling, Robbie/Guy Chambers smash hits, and a story that chimes with a modern desire to celebrate difference in a kinder way.

  • Do you love Dick?

    Their joke, not mine! Double entendres aplenty and snake hips all the way for Curtis 'Love Island' Pritchard's first foray into panto. Enter stage left, the Muddy verdict.

  • Beauty or Beastly?

    Aylesbury Waterside Theatre's panto production stars Danny Walters (Keanu from EastEnders for you non-soapsters!) plus La Voix (Britain's Got Talent) and local celeb Andy Collins. But was it beautiful or beastly?

  • Muddy reviews: Cinderella on Ice

    The spins, jumps and lifts in this Wycombe Swan production of the classic fairy tale are frankly jaw-dropping - but then, what do you expect, it's the Russian Ice Stars leading the charge! Read my review, grab the kids and go.

  • 12 festive family shows

    Can't stand the panto? Here are 12 alternative festive shows without a boo, hiss or 'he's behind you!' in sight across Bucks, Oxon and beyond.

  • It’s panto time!

    It's what you've all been waiting for. Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it is! Oh no.... OK, enough! Here are 12 of the perkiest pantos in Bucks, Oxon and beyond.

  • Fight, fight!

    Fancy getting stuck into some Shakespeare this autumn? Just across the border from us, the RSC in Stratford is staging an anarchic version of King John. One of its stars, Richard Pryal, filled us in.

  • The best local culture picks this autumn

    My god I love Autumn. The kids are back at school, it's game on for clothes shopping, and best of all, it's a culture-vulture paradise, with loads of cool stuff to see across Bucks & Oxon. Ready with your red marker? Then let's get planning.

  • Review: War Horse, Oxford

    Eleven years after it first premiered, is War Horse still first past the post for must-see theatre? Read our brand new verdict from the New Theatre Oxford gala night.
