A paper moon may not be as good as the real thing, but it is a lot easier to get your hands on. I think the same can be said about theatre as well. It may only be a paper moon, but it is easily accessible to audiences, and the make believe that happens on stage is much more entertaining than if those events were happening in real life. That's why I think it is such a good name for a theatre company. They bring you the otherwise unattainable.

The Paper Moon Theatre Company do just that with their Magnificent Music Hall Matinee. It is impossible to travel back in time (at least for now), but on the 15th January you can enjoy the nostalgia of Victorian style variety entertainment (I'm not suggesting you're that old). Paper Moon say 'the good old days are here to stay' as they capture the era with colourful costumes, elaborate stages, and audience participation, complete with song sheets.

The variety show takes place at the New Wimbledon and tickets cost between 18.90-33.90. Guest stars include pianist, Bobby Crush, whose successes include three seasons at the London Palladium and an appearance on the Royal Variety Performance. He will be joined by Steve Hewlett, whose ventriloquist act got him all the way through to the finals of Britain's got Talent.
