Greeetings Chipsters everywhere! A couple of weeks ago, we announced that 11-year-old Grace Fincham had won a competition to become the junior reviewer at the Kings Theatre, Southsea, for 2017.
As part of her prize, Grace got to see the hilarious show Gangsta Granny, when it was at the Kings earlier this month. Grace also got to meet the actors Ashley Cousins and Gilly Tompkins. Here is a brilliant photo of Grace, who is on the left, with Ashley, Gilly, her brother Freddie and her half-sister Joan.
I hope you enjoy Grace’s review of Gangsta Granny, you guys!
Gangsta Granny is an awesome, heartfelt show about everyone’s typical granny – with a few twists and turns.
A stunning performance was given by Ashley Cousins and Gilly Tompkins from the moment the lights went down. They had the audience on the edge of their seats, hooting with laughter and applauding until their hands were red.
My personal favourite part of the show was when granny abseiled down the hospital so that she would not be seen by the doctors and nurses. But it was all amazing. The set was beautiful and the acting was beyond brilliant. Though, as the ending approached I don’t believe that there was a dry eye in the audience. Everyone, of all ages, can’t help but adore Ben and his Gangsta Granny.
Thank you for the brilliant review, Grace! Look out for her reviews of lots of other shows at the Kings throughout the year over at kingsportsmouth.co.uk.
Chip chip for now, your old friend Chipper.
