Reviews of Dad’s Army Radio Hour

What the public say

What a wonderful show. David Benson and Jack Lane had perfected every single voice, and mannerisms, of the cast of Dad's Army. It was a privilege to be in the audience. Well done Wolsey Theatre for bringing us another brilliant show and a good night's entertainment!

Shirley Dodman

Excellent show. The 2 performer's were brilliant in their portrayals of such family favourite characters. If you close your eyes you wouldn't know the difference. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was very funny. Recommended viewing if you fancy a great time and can find where the next show is being performed or maybe it can come back to the New Wolsey?
