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.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
