Mr Albert's BIG Finish!
Mr Albert’s Theatre is about to close, Charlie the Caretaker wants to save it by putting on a variety show, but they need a Big Finish! Will the Safety Inspector let Charlie do something dangerous? Has Mr Albert got talent and will he perform the Fastest Magic Trick in the World? Can Charlie learn to juggle in time to save the theatre? There’s loads of fun and audience participation in this colourful show set in an old theatre in the 1950s.
Mr Albert’s Big Finish, devised by Jon Marshall, Steve Collison and Jamie Waudby, was inspired by their fascination with the traditional variety acts who toured the music halls and variety theatres in the golden years of variety entertainment, and by the fate of so many variety theatres that were demolished in the 1960s, or at best turned into Bingo Halls.
As in the best melodrama there is a threat from an evil villain, the Health and Safety Inspector, who is eventually thwarted by Charlie’s determination to do something dangerous! ““I want to put my pyjamas on inside-out, I want to go in the exit and out the entrance”, Charlie exclaims , just before he leaps onto a huge rolling globe and attempts to balance on top of it.
There’s loads of audience participation and comedy in this colourful and action packed show and a gloriously happy ending to send out young audiences, and their parents, zinging with excitement.
If you like funny stories, magic, juggling, comedy and joining in you’ll love Mr Albert’s Big Finish!

“…I loved it, it was the best show I have ever seen. When Charlie pretended to be Frederico he was very funny. Can you come again
