Thankfully our hero - none other than the brave Robin Reliant - is on hand to save the love of his life. With the help of a pair of hapless servants, Fetch and Carrie, Robin risks the infamous Black Tower to save Flora, her father, and her eccentric sister Ruby.

Dates Required: January 2018


Production: Step in Time

Magpie Performers are looking for a Musical Director for our 2018 Summer production, 'Step in Time'
'Step in Time' is an all singing, all dancing production which follows the events of history using some of the most well loved songs from WestEnd productions, including but not limited to, Les Miserables, Bugsy Malone, Annie, Hairspray and the new but ever popular Hamilton.
Our group boasts about it's inclusivity, having members ranging from 9 years old up, of all genders and a few members with varying disabilities. Our group is proud to support people of all walks of life and to help them achieve something great either working on or off the stage.
We are looking for a Musical Director that is confident in teaching groups of people of varying ages, and leading specific dance rehearsals. Experience in teaching music would be nice but not an essential, just a knowledge of music is okay with examples of work.
Rehearsals for our production take place every Tuesday in Ipswich. The show dates themselves have not been officially confirmed, however will either be at the end of June or during July.
As a non-profit group we do not pay our team and everything is done through volunteering, so we are looking for a Musical Director who is willing to donate their time free of charge.
We need this role filled by January 2018.

Contact: If interested in this role please contact Bridie at with information about yourself and examples of any experience you may have relating to this role.

Starbrite Studios
Students November 2017

PRESS RELEASE 6th November 2017

Starbrite Studios are to have Beverley ‘singing loud for all to hear’ with their forthcoming production of Elf Jr. The Musical.

Beverley residents will embrace their inner ‘elf’ when Starbrite Studios School of Performing Arts students present their production of Elf Jr. The Musical, it was announced today by Emma Bailey-Hague, Creative Director and Principal of Starbrite Studios.

The show features 60 Starbrite students, aged between 3 and 16 years, and premieres on Sunday 3rd December 2017 at The Hayward Theatre in Beverley.

Emma Bailey-Hague says: “Elf Jr. The Musical is an uplifting musical about one boy’s quest to find his true identity. The story encourages each of us to approach each day with goodwill, wonder and cheer. From the first rehearsal, the students have worked together as a team to create this wonderful experience for our community to enjoy. We think they deserve a standing ovation for all their work.”

Starbrite Studios will present two showings of Elf Jr. The Musical on Sunday 3rd December 2017 at 2:30pm and 5:00pm at the theatre, which is located on Flemingate, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 0PW. There is already much excitement around it, so people are being encouraged to book their tickets early to avoid disappointment. Show and ticket booking details can be found by visiting the Starbrite Studios website at

The musical tells the story of a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is given the name Buddy and raised by elves in the North Pole. Buddy lives happily unaware that he is actually a human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list, and his stepbrother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of the holidays.

Elf Jr. The Musical is based on the 2003 New Line Cinema hit ‘Elf’ starring Will Ferrell, and features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer) and Chad Beguelin (Disney's Aladdin On Broadway, The Wedding Singer), a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).

Mrs H of Baker Street

Mrs H of Baker Street

While Sherlock Holmes is away on his cases, his landlady, Mrs Hudson & her Cockney maid, Fanny-Annie Grubbins, secretly do their own detective work - and save Holmes and Watson from their enemies.

The Conan Doyle private detective stories of Holmes and Watson have been a perennial favourite ever since they were first published in the Strand Magazine in the 1880s. I in fact wrote a radio adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles a hundred years later in the 1980s! It occurred to me at the time that the landlady character, Mrs Hudson, must have acquired some knowledge of how a detective works, by osmosis at least, if nothing else.
So I wrote and co-produced this stage farce for the Playhouse, Salford, directed by Gabe Kern, which had a week’s premiere run at the Manchester Comedy Festival a few years to great success. I couldn’t have wished for a better response. Maybe you can prove me wrong!

Name: Julia Galbraith
Hi Im 50 is there a group for me?

Peter's response:

Hello Julia,

The answer is yes of course, age is no barrier to joining an amateur dramatics group.

You don’t say where you are located and I’m afraid I probably wouldn’t know the groups or schools in your area and so would be unable to make any recommendations. I suggest you take a look at the Groups section of the website and check the groups and schools in your County/Region. There will be groups and societies listed with contact details. If in doubt click on the group name or logo and that will take you directly to the group’s own website. In my experience most groups and schools would welcome any new member with open arms.

Best of luck, let me know how you get on.
