Oldham Coliseum

18th March 2023

Very disappointed to hear of the closure of Oldham Coliseum theatre. I worked there as an actor, once with Anne Kirkbride (Coronation Street’s Deidre Barlow) in her first job, and it was Kenneth Alan Taylor who mounted the very first production of Alfie the Musical there. It is sad that a theatre that nurtured so many wonderful actors and plays has closed its doors forever.
