REVIEW: Scunthorpe audiences now enjoying Best Little Whorehouse in Texas at Plowright Theatre
A thigh-slapping, toe-tapping performance of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas will make you want to do the dosey doe.
The talented cast of Scunthorpe’s Wilton Productions fitted right in with the country and western theme.
The apt dance routines and glamorous stocking and suspender costumes gave the show its wow factor but it was the showing of skin that put the ‘wild’ into the wild, wild, west.
Glamorous girls and hunky cowboys appeared in some show-stopping musical numbers when The Best Little Whorehouse had its opening night at the Plowright Theatre in Laneham Street.

The ‘seedy’ theme to the storyline was presented in a tasteful and refreshing way with added comedy.
The show follows the journey of two new recruits at Mona’s Chicken Ranch.
The whorehouse is an establishment that had been part of the passage of youth for many a boy in Texas but the 1970s rise of TV saw the demise of the institution.
A battle to save the establishment from closure begins and Miss Mona’s girls entertain the college local football team.
The footballers dancing in the locker room in preparation for their wild night is the build up to something sensational.
In particular, the scene where the Whorehouse is raided, captures the essence of Wilton Productions – in their creativity to use slapstick comedy to portray the most awkward of situations.
Ladies in the audience might find themselves blushing when one of the cast gallops down the stairs holding just a cowboy hat to hide his modesty!
Miss Mona is played by Wilton newcomer Ali Newell, in her first leading role for the group, and Andrew Jackson, one of Wilton’s most experienced members, plays the role of Ed Earl Dodd, the feisty sheriff of Lanvil County, Texas.
The solo singing parts were executed superbly and as a group there was a buzz both on and off the stage.
This production is directed by John Parsons, musical direction is in the capable hands of Damian Bell and the Choreography has been created jointly by Danielle Singleton and Eve Ridley.
If you’re after a wild night out, grab your cowboy boots, checked shirts and denim delights and book tickets to the show.
You can join them at 7.30pm each night until Saturday, September 15.
Tickets are £11 and £9 for concessions.
