Summer Shows include Blackpool, Guernsey (x 2), Bridlington, the Isle Of Man (x 3) and numerous tours of Holiday Centres.
The Stage Review
‘Comedy band Schooner have been reborn with a new line-up and a topical approach…Costumed sketch comedy is their stock in trade and it is tough to condense this type of act into a showcase set, but Schooner showed with their Little Britain sketch and a Simpsons item to suggest that busy times are just around the corner’.
