FROM the cast of the Australian TV soap 'Neighbours' to the top of the pop charts and star billing in musical theatre, Jason Donovan is now sharing his stories with his 'My Amazing Mid-Life Crisis' touring shows.

It comes to Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury, next Wednesday, September 5, and crosses the border next year when he comes to Newtown’s Hafren theatre on Thursday, March 14.

The ultimate 1980s heart-throb who scored 16 hit singles, has been celebrating his 50th birthday by extending his tour to include a final series of dates.

Donovan presents autobiographical 'in conversation' style nights examining every aspect of his life and career, including his times in 'Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' on 'I’m a Celebrity' and 'Strictly Come Dancing' as well as with 'Neighbours' and Kylie, in a witty and entertaining way full of music and laughter.

Jason was in Shrewsbury earlier this summer as part of the 'Let’s Rock Shrewsbury 10 Years of Retro' festival line-up at Shrewsbury Quarry, and previously appeared at the theatre as the legendary record producer Sam Phillips in the touring show 'The Million Dollar Quartet'.

Theatre Severn welcomes a host of personalities this month with Sir Michael Parkinson in conversation with his son Mike and revisiting highlights from the Parkinson archives on Sunday, September 9; music mogul behind more than 100 Top 40 hits Pete Waterman on Sunday, September 23; and acclaimed Irish cameraman and presenter Colin Stafford-Johnson with a talk illustrated with his own stunning film footage and photography, on Sunday, September 30.
