Writer Suzan Holder has a new comedy play coming to Manchester’s Three Minute Theatre next week. ‘Shake It Up Baby’ is the story of Bev, a lovelorn Beatles fan who launches herself into the world of internet dating.
This will be Suzan’s first project following three years as a writer/director of youth pantomime. Her sell out shows of Cinderella, Aladdin and Peter Pan gained rave reviews for their performances at Mads Little Theatre in Macclesfield. Original scripts for the shows now sell in countries as far away as Canada and Chile as well as all around the UK.
Suzan says: “After three years working with Prestbury Youth Pantomime, I decided to give myself a fresh challenge. The result is the story of fifty-something Bev, a lifelong Beatles fan who has spent years collecting Beatles memorabilia.Bev is looking for love but her attempt at joining an online dating agency leads to disaster. It’s a touching and funny story looking at love and life and although I’ve never tried internet dating myself, I have lots of friends who have!”
Suzan is an experienced journalist who worked at ITV and produced the daytime show ‘Loose Women’. She ran her own business, Dramarama, for ten years teaching drama to children and has worked as a theatre producer for Brendan O’Carroll, the creator and star of Mrs Brown’s Boys. She is married to former Slade lead singer Noddy Holder.
‘Shake It Up Baby’ is on at Three Minute Theatre, Afflecks Arcade, from Thursday 17th September to Saturday 19th September 2015.
