This March the Louth Playgoers Riverhead Theatre welcomes one of their patrons, Graham Fellowes, bringing his famous comedy act John Shuttleworth with his show ‘A Wee Ken to Remember.’

Versatile singer/organist, John Shuttleworth has a dilemma: he wanted to tell the audience all about his most memorable weekends.

But next-door neighbour and sole agent, Ken Worthington has thwarted John’s plans, by cocking up the lettering of the show’s poster. “Weekend” has become “Wee Ken” and there’s nothing John can do about it.

He is now duty-bound to steer the evening towards a celebration of the diminutive impresario’s life in “A WEE KEN to Remember”.

A hilarious new show from the star of BBC Radio 4’s “John Shuttleworth’s Lounge Music” and “The Shuttleworths”, featuring John’s familiar banter with on-stage phone calls to Ken and his dinner-lady wife, Mary, plus musical interludes performed as ever on John’s Yamaha organ.

Old favourites like, “Two Margarines” and “I Can’t Go Back To Savoury Now”, plus newer ditties like “Visiting Time”, “Midweek” and the rock’n’roll footstomper, “Early Tea”.

The show is suitable for all and tickets are £15, with all profits from the show will go to the Ark Animal Rescue and Retirement Home in North Somercotes.

The show is on for one night only on Saturday, March 28 at 7.30pm. Tickets are available at: www.louthplaygoers.com or from the box office between 10am-1pm on Monday-Saturday, 01507 600350.
