THE legendary singer, performer and
Osmond has visited Liverpool's Echo Arena,
on 29 January 2017, for what was one of the best nights Liverpool has seen as he
celebrated on stage 50 years in show business. This is also his 1st solo concert
tour of the UK, in 4 years so no wonder why it was a massive sell out. This

summary of his extraordinary life so far. On stage he delivered many of these
Donny told the media that:- "I am thrilled and delighted to
be coming back in Liverpool, and to tour the UK. The UK audiences have always
been very special to me, especially Liverpool. Once the British people welcome
and accept you, they really do take you to their hearts and no more so than in
Liverpool. Performing a real joy for me and to do it to such an amazing audience
makes it even more memorable."
With a live band, dancers and multi media screens to enhance the
performance, this was also a memorable night for the audience as well.

THE builders are in, but Unity Theatre is still continuing
to bring radical theatre to the City in its:- 'Out of Space'
season, which reaches out of the theatre and into the community, with a
selection of bold and reactive shows.
The shows Cathy has will be hosted witin the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral Lady

current homelessness crisis in Liverpool and we are told that both preformances
have now both been sold out. The group putting on Cathy, But Cardboard Citizens,
said that:- "We have been encouraging audience members to make a donations
to this cause instead of buying a ticket. This seemes to have gone down well."
Actor and Unity Theatre Patron, David Morrissey said:- "Cardboard Citizens
do fantastic work for excluded people, and have done for the past 25 years. I'm
really pleased that Unity Theatre are able to bring the astounding show CATHY to
Liverpool, which has suffered a rise in homeless people over the last few years.
In addition to a suggested donation to the local foodbank, Hope+, Unity will
also be collecting for Shelter, the housing and homeless charity. The charity
was established 50 years ago in response to public calls for action following
the release of the original TV play, Cathy Come Home. Even after 50 years Ken
Loach's story is still very relevant today so please give generously!"
Acclaimed Theatre Company Cardboard Citizens presents this powerful and emotive
Forum Theatre show, exploring resonances in today's society with the story told
in the ground-breaking Ken Loach film, Cathy Come Home, 50 years ago.
Candid, poignant and intimate, this four star hit new play (The Stage, The
Upcoming & The Reviews Hub) by award winning playwright Ali Taylor (Cotton Wool,
OVERSPILL, Fault Lines) offers a timely reflection on the social and personal
impact of spiralling housing costs, gentrification and the challenges of the
forced relocation away from London.
