John Le Mesurier was one of the most recognisable characters in 'Dad's Army'. His story is told by Julian Dutton at The Lamproom on Friday 7 June at 7.30 p.m. Following a sell-out run at Edinburgh Julian Dutton launches a major UK tour. An affectionate tribute to one of Britain’s best-loved comedy stars, multi-award-winning writer & performer & leading impressionist Julian Dutton (BBC1’s The Big Impression, BBC R4’s The Secret World) reveals the man behind the wry smile and urbane English repartee that charmed millions and turned Le Mesurier into a household name as Sergeant Wilson in Dad’s Army.

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Jerome Robbins’ iconic production transports Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to 1950s New York City where two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs: the American Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. This exciting month-long production journey is led by leading local professional music, dance and drama practitioners and gives you the opportunity to perform at Barnsley’s Lamproom Theatre in a timeless work of musical theatre. Over the rehearsal / workshop period, you will be working towards your big performance, all facilitated by our production team.
