Musical “Paddy” heads for Telford stage

There’s just one week left for theatre lovers to grab tickets to the latest musical to grace the stage at Oakengates Theatre @ The Place next Friday 11 November.

Musical “Paddy” heads for Telford stage

‘Paddy’ tells the story of emigration in all its shapes and forms.  The production tells the story of a young Irish emigrant called Patrick Murphy (played by Tommy Fleming) who leaves Mayo in the 1960s in search of fame and fortune.  The show follows his life in both London city and Ireland over a 25 year period.

Paddy is the work of international singer Tommy Fleming, Midwest Radio’s Tommy Marren and Mayo-based songwriter Gerry Carney.

Tommy Fleming is one of Ireland’s most popular and successful artists and his involvement in Paddy is seen as a natural progression in a career that has seen him perform sell-out solo concerts in Ireland, the UK, America and Austrailia as well as performing alongside artists like Phil Coulter, Kenny Rodgers and Elaine Page.

Western People says about the show: “It boasts some fast-paced hilarious dialogue, tempered by moments of incredible pathos and emotion and enhanced by some beautiful directional and production touches together with a captivating musical score”

Tickets for Paddy which takes place at 7.30pm on Friday 11 November, cost £25 each and can be booked online at by calling the box office on 01952 382382, or in person at the theatre or Southwater One in Telford Town Centre
