The Frow Show. Mansell McTaggart East Grinstead presents: The Frow Show – Barmy Farmy Ah, the smell of the greasepaint. The roar of the crowd. The moo of the cows. Wait – cows? Sussex’s favourite sketch show The Frow Show is back – but not in the village Hall. This year the show is decamping to Springhill Farm, next to the Weirwood Reservoir on the outskirts of Forest Row for a three-week run. The 2022 show will bring a whole new swag of original songs and sketches presented socially-distanced, cabaret style. Inspired by life in the whacky village of Forest Row and the world at large, The Frow Show aims to bring simple and much-needed light relief to these heavy, complicated times. The show runs across three weekends: Thursday 29th, Friday 30th September and Saturday the 1st of October, and the following week: Thursday 6th, Friday 7th and Saturday the 8th of October, and then the week after: Thursday 13th, Friday 14th and Saturday the 15th of October. “We are marking some big firsts with the show this year. Not only are we performing in the performance space at Springhill Farm, which gives us a chance to create an exciting new home for the show, we have also teamed up with a new partner, AgeUK East Grinstead,” says the Frow Show’s director and producer Mike Sengelow. “We wanted to highlight issues around aging and the aged – so we’re partnering with AgeUK to explore these themes, present them in the show – and of course have lots of laughs along the way.” Mike Sengelow is no stranger to skit comedy. In his native New Zealand he starred in a primetime TV comedy show called ‘Skitz’. The rest of the Frow Show cast and musicians are professional performers from all around RH19. Tickets: From £16 (early bird) via the Frow Show Facebook page: www.facebook.com/thefrowshow Start: Doors open 6.30 for a 7.00pm start, with a bar and food.
