INNIT: URBAN MUSICAL
 

When Innit was first previewed in Salford over a year ago it was described by Salford Star’s reviewer as `epic’…`brilliant’…`mint’…and more.  Now a new production of the all singing, all dancing hoodie extravaganza is kicking off live on stage from 27th -31st January.  Not to be missed…


`Welcome to Salford the place to be
Where if you want protection you gotta pay a fee…
You parked yer car in an unsafe zone
So we’ll get yer stereo an yer mobile phone
We’ll set it alight, we’ll watch it burn
Our entertainment for the night…’

Oh yes, Salford’s stereotypes are coming back out to play in Micky Dacks’ ace new production of Innit: Urban Musical, being staged at The Lowry. With hard core content, like singing shopkeepers getting robbed and students getting mugged by the minute, it’s bound to shock The Lowry’s usual audience. But this is a proper Salford musical, written and produced by a local ex-con, with a message and a reality check for anyone who dares to watch.

“It’s about a young working class lad growing up here, who’s abandoned by his father, deceived by his mother and he goes off the rails and gets involved with a gang” explains Dacks “He gets a choice between following his dreams or a life of crime…”

In the lead role is Nick Saide, another ex-con who Dacks found through open auditions, and he’s joined by a mix of professional and street-wise performers.  If it’s anything like the previous productions, Innit is going to be another hit…

…and you’ll be singing all the way home

…`Oh we’re all on our way to the slammer, the judge has give us ten years under his hammer/But for us inner city boys crime is like us having toys…’

Tickets are available from  the Lowry on 0870  787 5790 or www.thelowry.com. Get a preview of the music at   <http://www.myspace.com/inniturbanmusical>  or join the facebook group  for  updates.

This was innovative, thought provoking, at times uncomfortable viewing, but overall, this is the best play/musical I have ever seen. I am an avid theatre goer, I saw this with my teenage son and it definitely gave us something to talk about! When it comes back on, we will definitely take a second trip.

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
