Jenkins is the hottest ticket in town, an enthusiastic soprano with less than perfect pitch, she warbles and screeches her way through arias by Mozart and Strauss, accompanied by her trusty pianist. But this delusional and joyously happy woman pays little attention to her critics, and surrounds herself with devoted friends and fans nearly as eccentric as herself.

Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up, and the carnage has only just begun!

"A landmark work in women's empowerment, as relevant today as ever after a year marked by unprecedented social and political protest in the face of unapologetic misogyny and racism, the play honours women's sexuality. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, this award-winning masterpiece gives voice to women's deepest fantasies, fears, anger and pleasure, and calls for a world where all women are safe, equal, free and alive in their bodies."

This play contains explicit sexual references and language

Bucks


Venue: Winslow Public Hall

Box Office: Tickets now on sale from our fabulous fancy dress supporter Costume Crazy 76 High Street, Winslow 01296 712728 (office hours only) or tickets@winslowplayers.co.uk
£7.00 Thursday evening
£9.00 Friday & Saturday evening


4, 5, 6 October


A Tomb With A View is set in as sinister an old library as one is likely to come across presided over by a portrait of a grim faced, mad eyed old man. There, a dusty lawyer reads a will (involving some millions of pounds) to an equally sinister family one member of which has werewolf tendencies, another wanders around in a toga of Julius Caesar and a third member is a gentle old lady who plants more than seeds in her flower beds. By the third act, there are more corpses than live members left in the cast and what about the sympathetic nurse and the author of romantic novels are they all, or more than, they seem to be? All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.

We begin our 51st year with a cracking murder mystery - with quite a few laughs for good measure.

A winner of 8 Tony Awards and Olivier Awards, this musical thriller tells the well-known tale of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, with Stephen Sondheim's dark yet comedic score.
Set in the Victorian era, Sweeney Todd returns to London to reprise his trade as a talented barber, as well as settling an old score. When he meets Mrs Lovett, the somewhat quirky owner of a struggling pie shop on Fleet Street, he's encouraged to set up his new barber shop above her store...
From the dark elements of the score, through to love songs such as Johanna and Not While I'm Around and the brilliantly amusing A Little Priest, this is a show not to be missed!

The Effect

Author: by Lucy Prebble
Directed by Mat Rees

The Effect



Tues 9 - Sat 13 October 2018 @7:30
The Effect is a clinical romance. Two young volunteers, Tristan and Connie, agree to take part in a clinical drug trial. Succumbing to the gravitational pull of attraction and love, however, Tristan and Connie manage to throw the trial off-course, much to the frustration of the clinicians involved. This funny, moving and perhaps surprisingly human play explores questions of sanity, neurology and the limits of medicine, alongside ideas of fate, loyalty and the inevitability of physical attraction.

Back at Edith's house, Anna urges Edith to write to Charles on her behalf. Edith reluctantly agrees, but has no idea of the impact on the three of them.

For each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme. One of Christie’s darkest tales and a masterpiece of dramatic construction, its growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing to the very end.

This stage version is based on the hit 1980 movie of the same name, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick.
Set within the offices of Consolidated Industries, three downtrodden female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with their ‘sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot’ of a boss and in a hilarious turn of events, get to live out their wildest fantasy of getting rid of the boss. While he remains "otherwise engaged," the women have the chance to give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that has always kept them down.
Set in the late 1970s. this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.

11th - 13th October 7:30pm

Based on the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock.
Set in 1935, Richard Hannay, a man with a boring life, meets a woman with a thick accent at a London Theatre who says she's a spy and that she has uncovered a plot to steal vital British military secrets by a group known as "The 39 Steps".
She talks him into taking her home to his flat but in the morning he finds her dead.
Fearing he will be accused of her murder he flees to Scotland in search of the leader of the espionage group in hope of saving the country's secrets.
The pace of this frenetic farce moves quickly from place to place and from muddle to mess. The conclusion combines mishaps, mistaken identities, and tongue-in-cheek references to everything we like about murder mysteries and film noir detective movies.

"How The Vote Was Won" by Cicely Hamilton & Christopher St John

In 1918 women over 30 and men over 21 won the right to vote in British elections. In 1928 the franchise was extended to include all women over 21.
This play was and remains one of the most popular and well known suffrage plays. It is set in the living room of Horace and Ethel Cole in Brixton, London, on the day of a general women’s strike called by Suffragettes because the Government has said that women do not need votes as they are all looked after by men! A play that highlights the absurd beliefs and contradictions of the time with with wit, humour and elements of farce.

"Lions and Donkeys" by Steve Harper
September 1918 on the Western Front and Tommy Atkins and Dave Rawlings, struggling to stay alive until the end of World War I, receive an unexpected visit from Lieutenant Hargreaves announcing that Tommy is to be awarded the Military Medal. Why, then, are they so keen to see the back of him and who is the strange Icelandic character who enters the scene, brandishing a sausage!

"After the flags and bands" by Allan Williams
Throughout the First World War we follow the women left at home, through letters and monologues, as their good companionship helps them cope with the devastating events on the Western Front.

A great evening’s entertainment and an opportunity to remember these important events from our past.

Smother

A brand new piece of theatre written by Caxton's own Ben Parfrement-Parkes You are cordially invited to the birthday party from hell. To mark 75 years of The Caxton Theatre, Smother is a brand new play from local writer Ben Parfrement Parkes (Dead and Breakfast), which has been commissioned exclusively to commemorate this momentous milestone. Recently widowed Joan Merrifield is also preparing to turn seventy- five. And what better way to celebrate her special day than with a visit from the whole family, reunited after many years apart? Could she have asked for a better birthday present? What could possibly be nicer than being surrounded by her nearest and dearest? Well, as it turns out, just about anything… The festivities get off to a disastrous start when Joan accidentally finds herself in bed with her sleazy ex-husband, Malcolm. Things only go downhill from there, and, as the gin starts to flow, and the social niceties subside, it soon becomes clear why this family have nothing to do with one another. As tensions reach breaking point, it’s all-out war. With long-buried secrets and resentments running chasm deep, who needs party games? Bold and brutal, SMOTHER is a savage, scathing black comedy in which blood really is thicker than water. **Please note that we have a no refunds policy on our tickets**

West Side Story is regarded by many as the finest work of the world-famous composer, Leonard Bernstein, whose centenary is being celebrated in 2018. It won a near-record 10 Oscars including best film and best score, the lyrics of which represent the major debut of Stephen Sondheim. 60 years after it first opened, West Side Story remains many people’s favourite musical and has even been described as one of the greatest pieces of musical literature.
The Bernstein-Sondheim combination comes together with electrifying effect producing a string of gloriously memorable numbers including "Something's Coming", "Maria", "America", "Somewhere", "Tonight", "I Feel Pretty", "A Boy Like That", "One Hand, One Heart", and the hilarious "Gee, Officer Krupke".
Combining all this with the special magic supplied by the wonderful cast of the Epsom Light Opera Company makes it easy to see that an amazing evening of musical entertainment awaits.

And there's the substitute doctor, Corey Phillips who believes Ellen can walk again and soon.

Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he’s handed a note that says simply “I love you” by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for the real truth. In a world where cheap entertainment keeps the proles ignorant but content, where a war without end is always fought and the government is always watching, ca Winston possibly hold on to what he feels inside? Or will he renounce everything, accept the Party’s reality and learn to love Big Brother?
Frighteningly relevant in the current political climate, Maldon Drama Group’s production is directed by Paul Warner and stars Paul Macklin as Winston with Heather Simms Lucas as Julia and Carey Brown as O’Brien. A strong supporting cast and an award nominated technical team make this one not to miss.

‘Colder Than Here’, by Laura Wade, is an unsentimental play of love, death and grief, which ‘balances raw emotion with a deliciously delicate black humour.’ It is about control, cardboard coffins and woodland burials. It’s about a family’s preparation for the inevitable and the conversations which many of us dread. First performed at London’s Soho Theatre in 2005, this production of ‘Colder Than Here’ by Wildgoose Theatre, marks its premiere performance in York.

NECP invite you to join us for our October production, a stage adaptation of Edith Nesbit's famous children's novel "The Railway Children". Living as she did at Well Hall in Eltham for 22 years where she wrote many of her famous books including The Railway Children, she was one of our most famous and fascinating former residents.
The story tells us about an Edwardian family, the Waterburys, living a happy suburban life in Edgecombe Villa in London, a house with "every modern convenience" as the estate agents would say. But that happy life comes to an abrupt end when their father, who works at the Foreign office, is suddenly and mysteriously taken away. The family is forced to move to a small house far away in the country close to a railway line where they must lead a life of near-penury. The adventures they have as they roam the fields by the railway waving to the 9.15 train each day, the friendships they make, and the way in which the children learn to deal with their new situation are lovingly told in the book and re-created for you in this stage adaptation by Mike Kenny.

Monty Python’s Spamalot is a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical, and received 14 Tony Award nominations. During its initial run of over 1,500 performances, it was seen by more than two million people and grossed over $175 million

Firstly – no – it is not a pantomime!!! There have been many fairytale stories over the years that are brought to life as stage musicals......think ‘Beauty and The Beast’, ‘Aladdin’, even ‘Frozen’ now on Broadway. ‘Cinderella’ by Rodgers and Hammerstein was probably the first of these - the timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with all the R&H hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance.
Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, the musical was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.
As adapted for the stage, with great warmth, a beautiful score and more than a touch of hilarity (there are lots of these!), the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper finally fits. We will be doing the Enchanted Edition based on the modern 1997 teleplay – so it will be modern, a traditional show delivered in an up-to-date fast-moving way – without forgetting the touches of magic along the way. Old shows don’t need to be dated; we will be working hard to bring it to life for today.
There are 6 principal roles for the ladies – Cinderella (of course), the Fairy Godmother, the wicked Stepmother, the two Stepsisters and the Queen. All are significant roles. For the men, there are 3 main roles – Christopher the Prince, Lionel his Steward and the King, again all have a lot to do. This will be a full company show with lots to get involved in – from townsfolk, market sellers, servants at the royal household, guests at the ball etc......There will also be a lot of choreography for the dancers – both ladies and gents – and company and dancers will be added in to as much of the show as possible. Some energetic dance numbers where possible in ‘The Prince is giving a ball’ for example, and more sedate in the elegant grand waltz scenes of the Ball.
It is a new show for all of us, but another winner from R&H I would suggest. A truly beautiful score combined with a good amount of humour and magical touches. Not necessarily easy from a staging point of view but we love a challenge! If you still aren’t sure, take a look at the 1997 film version starring Brandy, Whitney Houston, Bernadette Peters and Whoopi Goldberg.......you might just be surprised and see why we are excited to be bringing this rather unknown musical to the Witham stage!

Expect two hours of blissfully uncomplicated silliness in this classic farce set in 1944 in the vicarage of Merton-cum-Middlewick. Described as arguably the funniest farce ever written, it's outrageously contrived plot transforms, with madcap energy, a preposterous situation into spiralling chaotic hilarity.
A cast of the Lindley's finest farceurs pile on the misunderstandings, mistaken identities and pratfalls and with it, the laughs.

A Necessary Woman
It is Sunday 2nd April 1911 – the night of the Census.
Emily Davison, a Suffragette, is hiding in a cupboard in the crypt of the Palace of Westminster. Security is tight. There is a heavy police presence, but she is planning a daring act on Monday morning. Will she achieve her ambition or will Mary, a cleaner, give away her hiding place?
This brand new play is based on a true event and was written by Deborah Clair and Philippa Urquhart to celebrate the 2018 suffrage centenary.

How The Vote Was Won
In the days before radio, one effective way to get a message out and to have it discussed was to produce short plays that could be performed around the country, and so suffrage plays were born!
The Government has said that women do not need the vote, as they are all looked after by men! Horace Cole does not believe in Women’s suffrage……but who knows how a man’s mind may be changed!
This suffragette comedy was first performed on 13th April 1909 at the Royalty Theatre in London.

Moving drama of Rudyard Kipling’s grief and loss comes to Balham
Exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War, Balham’s award-wining theatre group, Southside, will perform ‘My Boy Jack’ by Olivier award-winner David Haig
Rudyard Kipling, acclaimed author of ‘The Jungle Book’, pulled strings to enable his only son to join the Army at the beginning of the First World War. John (known as Jack) was very short-sighted and had already failed three medical tests to be an infantry officer. But Kipling – an ardent imperialist – was determined that John should have the chance to prove himself as a warrior in what Kipling and many others saw as a moral crusade.
When John is reported missing after the horrific Battle of Loos in 1915, Kipling and his wife Carrie begin their own crusade to discover what happened to their only son.
‘My Boy Jack’ is a deeply moving drama that traces John’s journey from the Kipling family home in Sussex to the trenches of the Western Front – where the bespectacled John has to earn the respect of ordinary soldiers in the Irish Guards.

Together Violet, Doralee and Judy form an unlikely friendship & partnership to live their fantasy & take control of the office and achieve the ultimate revenge by giving their boss the boot. 9 to 5 is a jubilant musical about friendship, female empowerment and getting ahead in the Rolodex era of the late 1970s.
Featuring original numbers from Dolly Parton's Oscar, Tony® and Grammy Award nominated score including Backwoods Barbie, Shine Like the Sun and the original hit song 9 to 5.
Leave the daily grind behind, grab your friends and come to the theatre for a night of outrageousness, romance and a lot of heart!

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

High Society is a musical based on the film of the same name which starred Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. This in turn was based on the Phillip Barry play ‘The Philadelphia Story’ the film of which stars Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, and Jimmy Stewart. The show features a score by Cole Porter and uses songs he wrote specifically for the production, along with a number of songs from his back catalogue. The story focuses on a wedding between a Long Island socialite and a pretentious executive that is thrown into disarray when her ex-husband arrives back on the scene. The year is 1938 and the era gives us an excuse to brighten up autumnal October with some lovely late deco glamour as we take a voyeuristic peak into the lives of the rich and glamorous inhabitants of Newport, Rhode Island.

October 30th-November 3rd 2018 7:30pm

One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public.
Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years, and it’s the high water mark of Sondheim’s six remarkable collaborations with director Harold Prince.

Murder's In The Heir

Murder's In The Heir



1st September 2018 to 8th September 2018 7:30pm
Turn the game Cluedo into a play and you have the masterfully entertaining Murder’s in the Heir! Almost every character in this hilarious mystery has the weapon, opportunity and motive to commit the unseen murder; and it’s up to your audience to decide who actually did it! Each of the heirs to the tyrannical billionaire Simon Starkweather has the means and the motive to do away with him. Starkweather gathers his family and employees to announce the contents of his will. His lawyer, Lois van Zandt, reveals that he has bequeathed vast fortunes to his befuddled niece Fiona, her playboy son Jordan, his great-niece Paula (a Southern belle) and his grandson Simon III, as well as to his many servants. Then Lois delivers the bombshell! Within hours this will becomes invalid. Of course, the rejected heirs are not pleased, so it’s not surprising when they roam the old mansion carrying such items as an axe, a gun and poison. Predictably, the lights go out, and Simon is discovered murdered. Simon III (played by the same actor who plays the elderly Simon) is determined to find his grandfather’s killer, with the help of detective Mike Davis. The play’s unique ending, utilizing secret ballots gathered at intermission from the audience, determines the killer in this Billy St. John maze of murder. **Please note we have a no refunds policy on ticket sales**

It's time to let your 80s hair down and get ready for a big night out, with not one, but two Godber classics.
Start the evening in the disco, where Ralph, Judd, Les and Lucky Eric, your friendly local Bouncers, will take you on a journey through the lives of the many and varied customers who enter through their well-managed doors.
After a brief interval, join waitresses, Nicki, Mel, Carol and Adele in oh-so trendy cocktail bar Shakers, and observe their portrayal of the people whose patronage both pays their bills and gives them aggro.
Written in the 1980s, and retaining all the 'charm' of that era, yet still every bit as relevant and relatable today, we present a back-to-back showing of John Godber and Jane Thornton's Bouncers and Shakers. At rip-roaring speed, over two one-act plays, our eight actors employ physical and vocal humour to play multiple roles, giving you a glimpse into the lives of dozens of different characters. Wince at some, cringe at others, but above-all, laugh with our Bouncers and Shakers.
Please note, these plays feature adult themes and moderate swearing

Kipps and Ann were childhood friends. When they were parted as children, Kipps cut a sixpence in half and told Ann to look at it whenever she missed him. Years later, Kipps is working as an apprentice in a draper’s shop in Folkestone. Ann arrives in the town, looking for him. They meet and re-kindle their childhood friendship. Then everything changes. Kipps meets Chitterlow – an eccentric actor/playwright – and finds out that he has inherited a fortune. He leaves the shop and is drawn into high society. He meets and falls in love with Helen Walsingham. They get engaged but Ann finds out before Kipps has a chance to tell her. She tells him that she never wants to see him again and is furious and upset at how he has treated her. But Kipps isn’t happy in high society and with the changes it forces upon him. After a showdown with Helen’s tyrannical mother, Mrs Walsingham, he calls off the engagement with Helen, realising it is Ann he loves, and he begs Ann to take him back. She does and they marry and start a new life with Kipps’ fortune. But all is not well. Ann just wants a simple life without all the trappings that Kipps’ money has brought with it. The money just causes rows between them. It looks as though their marriage won’t survive until Kipps learns that his financial adviser, Helen’s brother, has speculated all his money away and there is nothing left. Kipps and Ann are reconciled, realising that all that matters is that they have each other. In a surprising twist, Kipps comes into money again, but this time he realises that love is more important and has been all along.

Tuesday 11th - Saturday 15th September


The play is set in Tilling during the early 1930s where the pace is slow and there’s not an awful lot to do for the genteel with private income other than gossip, paint the occasional landscape, daily shop for groceries, gossip, entertain and play bridge. They are led by Miss Mapp who has a strong hold on one and all until the arrival of Lucia. Miss Mapp has met her before, briefly, in Riseholme where… Lucia held sway and all followed her lead.
The Tilling residents swap houses with each other for the summer season by downgrading thereby saving on rental. Lucia,the outsider, rents Miss Mapp’s residence called “Mallards” and so the drama begins…
The play is a story of two women trying to gain the upper hand. It is gently funny and each and every character, however long on stage, can make an impression on the viewing audience

Goodnight Mister Tom

Author: Michelle Magorian

DeOne of the most uplifting stories ever written, Michelle Magorian’s book is brought gloriously to life in this stage adaptation by David Wood. Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to The Second World War, the play follows sad young William Beech who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving relationship with the elderly recluse, Tom Oakley. All seems to be perfect until William is devastatingly summoned back to London by his troubled mother.ails

Whatever became of ‘a land fit for heroes’
In the cosy England of 1932, the Ardsley family seems to be managing their lives very well following World War I and the Great Depression. Yet each of them struggles for survival in a world turned upside down. This brilliant commentary was originally considered defeatist, even subversive, but certainly still resonates today.

ONLY ONE PERFORMANCE - Sunday, September 16 at 2pm.

Gilbert & Sullivan Austin presents a Concert Performance of “Patience; or, Bunthorne's Bride.” A hilarious and lilting comic opera, Patience satirizes the "aesthetic craze" of the 1870s and '80s, when the output of poets, composers, painters, and designers of all kinds was indeed prolific but whose followers and admirers, some argued, were empty and self-indulgent.
However, we are going to take a few liberties: The Dragoon Guards become university frat guys, the poets are hipsters, and our Patience the milkmaid works in the dairy department of an everyday grocery store. It will be the same delightful story and the same wonderful music, but with a contemporary twist in the setting.
“Patience” has some of Gilbert’s finest comedy and Sullivan’s most captivating tunes, adding up to a masterwork fully equal to their very best. It has wit, charm, poetry ... and a delightfully complicated love triangle – surely perfect musical entertainment for the whole family!
We hear over and over that too much time passes between productions, so that any individual opera is unseen for many years. With this concert version of “Patience” we hope to be responding to those concerns.
The performance will include slightly edited dialogue and music with grand piano accompaniment performed by some of your favorite singers. Principal actors in suggested costuming will perform the actions of the play, accompanied by a four-part chorus.
All dialogue and lyrics will be captioned.
Artistic Director is Janette Jones, with Music Director Jeffrey Jones-Ragona.

TICKETS £18 CONC. £16


THU 20 - SAT 22 SEP


Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general.
How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. This is theatre at its best - exuberant, passionate, and joyous.

This revue tells the story of one man's luck, another man's misfortune - and how it will all turn out alright in the end!... Or will it?
This show tells the story of happy-go-lucky Mikey Morton, an ex-gangster and party crasher. Upon discovering an 'unattended' wallet at a society party, it looks like things are looking up. Taking on the persona of the wallet's owner, Mikey has it all - money, connections, friends - and the girl. Enter Diana, the beautiful society butterfly who falls head over heels for the man she thinks is Lucas DuMont - the unfortunate owner of the wallet.
Meanwhile, the real Lucas is at risk of being disinherited by his parents for losing his credentials - again. Deciding to win back favour with his family by proving he can look after himself, Lucas gets a job in a downtown speak-easy as a club singer. The resident hostess Camille, however, is not as glad about this as Lucas. Immediately the feud between Lucas and Camille begins, a high-society toff against a club girl from the block - what could go wrong?
Everything is going great - Mikey has Diana, Lucas has... a job. Camille is as in love with her own reflection as ever. What Mikey did not count on was his old gang buddies showing up expecting their cut of his new-found fortune. All at once it seems to go downhill for Mikey, his gang are back, and to top it off Chicago P.D. are onto him.
Will Mikey make it out of this? Will Diana find out who he really is?
Will Camille and Lucas ever duet?
Only one way to find out...

The Glass Menagerie

Ireland

Venue: Athlone Little Theatre, St Mary’s Place, Athlone

Box Office: www.athlonelittletheatre.ie/box-office/

Friday, September 21st to Friday, September 28th 8pm

Athlone Little Theatre opens its 2018-19 season with that classic American tale of love, bitterness and abandonment, The Glass Menagerie. This intense drama by Cat on a Hot Tin Roof author Tennessee Williams was first performed in 1944, then transferred to Broadway, where it won a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. It is considered Williams’s most autobiographical work.
Tom Wingfield (played by Frank O’Brien) looks back on the impoverished Wingfield family at a time when his domineering mother Amanda (Annette Dowling) is putting pressure on him to find a suitor for his fragile sister Laura (Emma O’Neill).
Laura devotes her time to her collection of glass animals, the favourite of which is the unicorn, an unusual creature that her could-be suitor Jim (Tomás Glynn) observes is “extinct in the modern world” – much like Laura herself, out of place in the world around her.
Mel O’Flynn directs the Little Theatre’s production with set design and construction under the artistic direction of Geoff Boles, lighting and sound design by Paddy Martin.

Vivie Warren, a young Cambridge graduate is horrified to learn that her education and entire luxurious life-style has been financed by her mother’s career in the world’s oldest profession.
The play was written in 1893 but was not performed until 1902 after which it was banned from public performance until 1925. Apparently Shaw wrote the play “to draw attention to the truth that prostitution is caused - not by female depravity or male licentiousness but simply by underpaying, undervaluing and overworking women so shamefully that the poorest of them are forced to resort to prostitution to keep body and soul together.”
This ground-breaking period drama is full of insight and humane understanding and ranks as one of Shaw’s masterpieces.

Following on the success of our two previous Community Musicals,‘The Hired Man’ and ‘The Dreaming’, we are proud to present our third Community Musical, Once Upon A Mattress.
If you thought you knew the story of Hans Christian Andersen's famous fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, you might be in for a big surprise!
Twelve princesses have tried to win the hand of Prince Dauntless in marriage, but each has failed a rigourous and almost impossible test of their true royalty set by his mother, the Queen. Desperate to marry his Lady lover, Sir Harry finds princess number 13, Winnifred who's test involves sleeping on a pea. Will Winnifred pass the test?
With a 1920's twist, sparkling with glitz and glamour and backed by a wonderful musical score, this hilarious, romantic, raucous and rollicking spin on the classic tale of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for many side-splitting moments.
Chances are you'll never look at fairytales quite the same way again!

HMS Pinafore & Trial by Jury

UK
London


Venue: Greenwood Theatre, 55 Weston Street, SE1 3RA

Box Office: TicketSource

24 Aug – 25 Aug 7pm


H.M.S. Pinafore sets love against duty in a timeless tale of broken hearts and unconfessed truths. The captain's daughter, Josephine, is in love with a lower-class sailor, Ralph Rackstraw. But her father intends her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty and a professed advocate of equality. Meanwhile Captain Corcoran loves the bumboat woman Buttercup, despite a similar disparity in rank. This production is set in the roaring twenties, bringing a touch of glamour to a classic operetta.
-
Trial by Jury is a lively courtroom drama filled with love, betrayal... and puppets. Edwin and Angelina were rapturously in love. Until, that is, their wedding day. Edwin decided to play the field before settling down, leaving Angelina in the lurch. She sued for breach of promise. But is the judicial system as fair as it seems, or is it all a puppet show? And who's really pulling the strings?

KCL Gilbert and Sullivan Society will also be performing this production at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate on Wednesday 22nd August. For more information, go to www.gsfestivals.org

Nothing quite says “Summer” like Picnic and Prosecco. Add in a little Outdoor Theatre and you’re in for a delightful afternoon. In the middle of this glorious summer we are experiencing why would you not want to bring a blanket and a bottle of fizz along to Kings Sutton to experience a unique performance of Shakespeare’s glorious comedy - A Midsummer Night’s Dream? When it’s raising funds for Save the Children so much the better.
Performers from local theatre companies in Banbury, Middleton Cheney, Aynho and Adderbury have joined forces to bring Shakespeare’s feisty fairies, madcap mechanicals, luscious lovers and graceful courtiers to Kings Sutton. Local resident Margot Bell has worked for Save the Children for a number of years and last year saw donations of over £6500.00 handed over to the charity.
“We’ve had events ranging from Yehudi Menuhin School of Music concerts to Autumn Fairs in Country Houses to charity lunches and fashion shows, but this is the first time that thespians have joined us to give three days of performances. It will be such a treat to have them performing in a garden in the village as well as the church. “
So if you’d like a little Shakespeare on a sunny afternoon, do come along and join “Shakespeare’s Sister Productions” for this worthwhile event.

Bringing Charles Dickens’ beloved novel to life, Lionel Bart’s Oliver! takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England. Join young,orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates the London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and - most importantly - for love. When Oliver is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, to the dismay of Fagin’s violent sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill’s thumb, but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results.
With spirited, timeless songs like As Long as He Needs Me, Food, Glorious Food, Consider Yourself and Where is Love, Oliver! is a musical classic not to be missed.

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favourite.

Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is an uplifting musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.
Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning, Rita O’Grady is just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled.’ Quickly drawing on strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?
Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.

The Dedham Players are delighted once again to be presenting our popular and distinctive open-air event in the delightful grounds of Castle house, Dedham.
From the Italian style of ‘Commedia dell'Arte’ to ‘English Restoration Comedy’ we have been delighting our audiences since 1995 with colourful costume dramas. This production in July 2018 will be our eighth and will again incorporate our unique style of presentation. As You Like It (one of Shakespeare’s early plays), is a light-hearted, charming comedy set in an enchanted forest. The play follows a multitude of characters driven from a nobleman’s court to exile in the magical Forest of Arden where they find refuge from ambition, intrigue and envy but ultimately find love!
To make the evening extra special, gates open at 6pm giving audiences the opportunity to bring their picnics and enjoy the beautiful Castle House grounds before the show starts at 8pm. Refreshments are available to purchase during the evening, including delicious beers from local brewers and free car parking.

The wood panelled hall of Acton Reynald Hall, just off A49 at Hadnall, once again provides the setting for Shawbury Village Players Summer production of this classic British farce by J B Priestley by very kind permission of the owners Chris and Judith Mackley and directed by Richard Bray.
A group of old friends, three Yorkshire couples, all married on the same day in the same chapel, gather at the Helliwell home to celebrate their silver wedding only to discover that they were never legally married. Pandemonium breaks out when these pillars of society believe they have been living in sin for twenty five years! Social embarrassment and Victorian horror is followed by a dawning awareness that their lives have been overturned and each couple starts to re-evaluate their marriage.
In the end of course, everything turns out well, and the play ends on a happy note.

We Are Three Sisters

Author: by Blake Morrison

We Are Three Sisters

Against the backdrop of a windswept northern village, three remarkable young women live their lives brightly.
In Haworth in the 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage, where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And throughout their confined lives intensely lived… they write.
With a touch of poetic licence, Morrison shows us the overwhelming humanity, charged emotions and brooding unease which characterise the Brontë household – and that of Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

Measure for Measure is very much a play for our times. With themes of corruption, abuse of power and sexual exploitation it holds a mirror to our world as much as the 17th century. Duke Vincentio absents himself from court leaving Angelo to rule as his deputy. Angelo condemns Claudio to death for getting Juliet pregnant: they are betrothed but not yet married. Claudio’s sister Isabella pleads for her brother’s life; Angelo will relent only if she gives herself to him. Scenes of intense emotion are interspersed with an earthy comic sub-plot in which Mistress Overdone and her side-kick Pompey navigate their way round Angelo’s edict closing down the brothels. All this is observed by Vincentio, who has disguised himself as a friar and return at the end to bring all to book.

Three London chums decide that a boating trip up the Thames is just the ticket to help cure them of their imaginary ailments, including "a general disinclination to work of any kind". Accompanied by their feisty fox terrier Montmorency, our hapless heroes set off for the river where they embark upon a series of madcap adventures involving a banjo, an Irish stew, an enormous trout, an uncooperative tin of pineapple, a gang of murderous swans and lots of eccentric and colourful characters. Oh, and a comic song or two along the way! This hilarious tale of a disastrous boating trip was written in 1889 by Walsall-born author Jerome K. Jerome and has been adapted by Jack Babb - a perfect summer evening's entertainment guaranteed to have you crying with laughter.

In the run-down period, the common man can easily be swept away in politics in any negotiation. The issue is small, which can be resolved by discussion.
But the same little thing makes a person change in contention. And society, system and media disseminate those issues by adding fuel to the flames. Unknowingly, there is a transformation in the same war.
Suddenly the war became so fierce that peace disappeared altogether.
Because the seeds of war have been planted on their own.

Our play has got 5 nominations at the ZEE NATYA GAURAV AWARD,2018 .

A perceptive and comedic look at a modern issue… Siobhan, the ‘Achiever of the Year’ inspires her hopeful new recruits in the Slim For Life dieting club. Siobhan has lost seven stone, found a new self, a fulfilling job and a wonderful husband. Now, she encourages others to achieve the same.
These are seven very contrasting women – Siobhan, the leader of the group and a total control freak, who struts around the stage in her ‘Achiever of the Year’ banner and her ever faithful Kelly, quiet and deep and heading for disaster from the moment the play opens. Claudette the Liverpudlian, with an obsession for food, attractive, confident and loud, who is the exact opposite of Rosie, the dowdy and lank-haired loser. There is Lucinda, who feels far more at home with a large gin and tonic, is sophisticated , smart and could organise any office in the city. Celia is a jolly hockey sticks lady and everybody’s friend with a perfect marriage, or so we are lead to believe, initially, and Jean who is being ripped off by Siobhan and cannot afford to be.

The Cripple of Innishmaan



11-14 July 2018
In 1934, on a small island off the West coast of Ireland, the arrival of a Hollywood film crew (who we never see) on a neighbouring island gives local youngsters the chance to escape the island and head for the USA.
Local disabled orphan, Billy, able and bright, and in love with local girl Helen, is cared for by two aged aunts. He is derided by the locals (and his aunts) as no-one understands him. His aunts protect him from discovering his parents tried to drown him at birth. Billy, desperate to audition, to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life, persuades a local fisherman to take him to the neighbouring island by telling him he is dying of TB.
Billy is cast in the film and goes to the USA. He discovers Hollywood alone is no better than Innishmaan alone so returns home. Helen finally agrees to go out with him. Ironically, at the end of the tale, he ‘gets the girl’ only to discover he really does have TB.
The characters are funny, alcoholic, vicious, bigoted and cruel, and all crippled – one physically, others emotionally. This bleakly comic tale, with vivid images of all aspects of human life, where truth is uncovered gradually, successfully plucks at your heartstrings with deep, dark and powerful humour.

Chaos ensues, as the bumbling Francis Henshall attempts to keep apart his two guvnors: Roscoe Crabbe, a small time gangster and Stanley Stubbers, an upper class criminal. This award winning play is a glorious celebration of British comedy, laugh out loud satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.

One of them, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they’ll go “the full monty”—strip all the way. As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie.

As baking fever hits the country, the village fete organisers in the usually sleepy village of Crabblebottom are delighted when celebrity chef Eduardo D’Angelo takes up residence in the village and agrees to judge the annual cake baking competition. But this year there is a change of plan, as the bake-off turns into a bump-off.
The format of the event is a short play during which one of the cast is 'murdered', followed by an opportunity for the audience to question the remaining characters on various aspects of what they have seen and heard (whilst they enjoy a meal). They then have do work out who did it, and why.

This is a fantastic warm, funny, witty yet poignant comedy about three women who meet at University ass students when they share a house. The play is about their lives and close friendship over the next thirty years. This was hugely successful and received much praise from the critics when it was first performed in London in 2015 with Tamsin Outhwaite, Gina McKee and Anna Maxwell Martin. Written by talented writer and actor Amelia Bullmore ,of Scott and Bailey fame, this play will make you laugh, cry and has some surprises along the way. Any women who have made lasting friendships will relate to this fabulous story, although it will appeal to men and women alike. **Please note we have a no refund policy on our tickets**

Note this is an OPEN AIR production


This National Theatre adaptation provides moments of hilarity, fast-moving action, romance and pathos. A memorable piece of theatre ideal for Hamptworth's beautiful outdoor surroundings.
Alonso Quijano is an ageing minor aristocrat obsessed with books of medieval knights and their fantastic adventures, slaying giants, fighting evil wizards, rescuing maidens, and acts of great chivalry.
One day he launches himself into his fantasy (or is it his madness?), takes the title “Don Quixote de la Mancha”, and sets off with his loyal servant and squire, Sancho Panza, a local farmer, to rid La Mancha's towns & villages of giants, villains and injustice.
In Quixote’s feverish mind, windmills become giants, inns are mistaken for castles, and sheep turn into warring armies. Sancho’s down-to-earth advice and common sense are to no avail against his master’s fantasies as they ride from one mad adventure to the next.
Meanwhile, back home, Quixote’s friends, anxious to cure his madness, are devising desperate schemes to bring him back to the safety of his own bed!

Venue: The Victoria Hall Theatre, Harlow, Essex

Box Office: TicketSource

Wed 18th - Sat 21st July 2018 8pm


Bertolt Brecht's shrewd and razor sharp The Threepenny Opera.
Set in modern day - but not quite as we know it - director Mel Guest's production takes a dark look at a capitalist world where beggars, whores, murderers and corrupt police compete for power, reputation and control. While London prepares for the coronation of King Charles III, the scheming Peachums do battle with Police Commissioner Tiger Brown. But their daughter, Polly, didn't come home last night - and Mac the Knife is back in town...

A bawdy and brutal political satire - with adult content.

Fantastic Mister Fox!

Author: Roald Dahl
adapted by David Wood

Fantastic Mister Fox!

UK
Sussex


Venue: Barn Theatre, Southwick

Box Office: www.southwickplayers.org.uk or 01273 597094 or on the door!
Tickets from £12


18-21 July 7:30pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm


A real children's favourite from the mind of Roald Dahl
Fantastic Mr Fox is a tale of "goodies vs baddies", with the wonderfully witty Mr Fox running rings around his enemies … the revolting Boggis, Bunce & Bean.
When Mr Fox steals one chicken too many from a local farm, the farmers decide the only cure is to rid themselves of Mr Fox by any means possible. Outwitted at every turn, the farmers ploys backfire, and the animals celebrate with an enormous feast at their expense.
This adaptation is enormous fun, and will capture the imagination of young and old alike - and most of all, will have audiences enthralled ... with creative, magical staging, it will be a wonderful play for the
Southwick Players Youth Group.
David Wood has adapted many children’s stories for stage, including Dahl's "The Twits" and "The Witches".

RENT! The Musical

RENT! The Musical

UK
Lincolnshire


Venue: Grantham College Refectory, Stonebridge Road, NG31 9AP Grantham

Box Office: www.eventbrite.com
Tickets: £13.52


20th - 21st July 7:30pm


RENT! tells the tale of a group of artists struggling to survive in the East Village Location of New York City. Based on the opera La Boheme, the musical is shown through the lens of Mark’s camera as he films the lives of his friends and the surrounding community, which includes a large homeless population. Many of the cast are living with HIV/AIDS and a major aspect of the show is how the various characters cope with the idea of their own mortality.
Many people who don’t know RENT! think it is a show about angry people shouting at each other. It is not. It’s about love and it’s about family. Sometimes people who love each other get mad and shout at each other, and sometimes life is shitty and you scream about it. Anger is not what this show is about; love is. All aspects of love: family, friendship, romance, sex, self-love, passion for your work, passion for humanity.
No day but today.
Please note this production contains adult themes.

A fast-moving farce full of fun, frolics, near misses and doors opening and closing!
Desperate to find the funds to pay for his daughter’s wedding, Church Warden, George Williams, seizes the opportunity to rent out the vicarage while waiting for a new vicar to be appointed. The booking is to a touring Theatre Company, who are to stage a Murder Mystery weekend in which a female Vicar and a Bishop are among the cast.
Unfortunately for George, a new female Vicar is appointed to the vicarage just before the Murder Mystery weekend can take place. George thinks he is still in luck when the new Vicar, Caroline Timberlake announces that she is to visit friends at a college reunion over the weekend. However, events take a turn for the worse when Bishop Herbert rings the vicarage to announce that he is to visit to meet his new vicar.
Matters get worse as half of the Theatre Company fails to make an appearance and the remainder spend most of their time either fighting with each other or getting drunk, or both. This is even before we meet the guests!

The Queen of the Elves will stop at nothing to claim the land of humans for her own, but she never counted on the power of Granny Weatherwaxand her coven - Nanny and Magrat - fighting back.
With a cast of larger-than-life wizards, witches, yokels, rude mechanicals, elves, trolls, a dwarf, orangutan (not a monkey!) and Oberonesque King of the Fairies; With a Royal Wedding, live band and quirky folk songs and an exciting talent filled collaboration between Beaconsfield Theatre Group and The Young Theatre - this show promises to be a visual summer feast of funny and fun Discworldian entertainment not to be missed!

The Unknown Theatre Company in collaboration with Arts Active present Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel.
The 1945 work was adapted from Ferenc Molnár's 1909 play Liliom, transplanting its Budapest setting to the Maine coastline. The story revolves around carousel barker Billy Bigelow, whose romance with millworker Julie Jordan comes at the price of both their jobs. He participates in a robbery to provide for Julie and their unborn child; after it goes tragically wrong, he is given a chance to make things right.
The show includes the well-known songs "If I Loved You", "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" and "You'll Never Walk Alone". Richard Rodgers later wrote that Carousel was his favourite of all his musicals.
Following the successful production of the Pirates of Penzance last year St David’s Hall are delighted to welcome back this highly talented and youthful company to work with our Arts Active team.
This is an amateur production by arrangement with R&H Theatricals Europe.

Following on the success of our two previous Community Musicals,‘The Hired Man’ and ‘The Dreaming’, we are proud to present our third Community Musical, Once Upon A Mattress.
If you thought you knew the story of Hans Christian Andersen's famous fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, you might be in for a big surprise!
Twelve princesses have tried to win the hand of Prince Dauntless in marriage, but each has failed a rigourous and almost impossible test of their true royalty set by his mother, the Queen. Desperate to marry his Lady lover, Sir Harry finds princess number 13, Winnifred who's test involves sleeping on a pea. Will Winnifred pass the test?
With a 1920's twist, sparkling with glitz and glamour and backed by a wonderful musical score, this hilarious, romantic, raucous and rollicking spin on the classic tale of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for many side-splitting moments.
Chances are you'll never look at fairytales quite the same way again!

THE ADDAMS FAMILY Young@Part® A NEW MUSICAL

After the hugely successful Seussical The Musical Jr, The Athenaeum Youth Masqueraders bring everyone’s favourite kooky gothic family in The Addams Family Young@Part.

She has fallen in love with Lucas, a young man from a respectable family and only her father, Gomez knows who has to keep her secret from the family but even worse from his cherished wife Morticia whom he shares everything with. All is fine until the two family meet for a fateful dinner. Will Gomez manage to keep his promise to Wednesday? Join them along with all the rest of the family for a heart-warming story of young love, family and friendship… with the famous Addams Family twist… as if it was going to be that easy!

Tickets: £12.00 concessions ( Wed & Sat ) £9.00


Wednesday 30 May to Friday 1st June 7:45pm
Saturday 2 June 5:00pm
Award-winning actor Rory Kinnear’s first play is a witty and heartfelt look at an ‘ordinary’ family with all the tensions and conflict that can mean.
It’s Andy Griffiths’ 21st birthday. The cake is baked and presents are wrapped. But Andy is severely disabled and spends most of his life in a care home. His mother Carol nervously awaits the guests.
As in all family dramas there are unexpected visitors who bring painful memories and awkward complications. The stage is set for ‘the fissions inside the nuclear family’ to explode.
The Herd debuted at the Bush Theatre, London, in September 2013 directed by Howard Davies, for which Kinnear went on to win the Critics’ Circle Most Promising Playwright Award 2014.
‘An accomplished debut… a vivid and unsentimental portrait of domestic life, flecked with wry humour’ – Evening Standard
‘Witty, agonising and eye-opening… a weave of painful insights and playful humour’ – Independent
‘Kinnear clearly understands the tensions of family life. [He is] good at exposing the fissions inside the nuclear family.’ – Guardian

www.wegottickets.com


Thursday 31st May, Friday 1st June and Saturday 2nd June 7.45pm


My Three Angels is a comedy set in French Guiana in 1910 and takes place over Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. The temperature is 105 in the shade, so a play set at Christmas to be performed in the summer doesn't seem such a daft idea after all!
In brief, the story is about three prisoners at a penal colony in French Guiana who are on loan fixing a roof for a local merchant, the kindly Felix Dulay. Working at Dulay’s home and business on Christmas Eve, the three inmates—Joseph, Jules and Alfred—befriend the merchant, his dutiful wife Emilie and beautiful daughter Marie Louise. The latter is in love with Paul, who is due to visit the Dulays with his demanding uncle, Gaston, a cousin of Felix’s who also happens to own the Dulay business. When the unpleasant Gaston and his timid nephew arrive unexpectedly late on Christmas Eve, the three prisoners decide to ‘help’ Felix and his family in their own fashion.
My Three Angels was originally performed by BDS in 1975. We are dedicating the performance to the memory of our President, Nevin Davies, who passed away in December 2017.

A beautifully crafted, award winning, tragi-comedy

Set in a rural town in County Kerry over run by a Hollywood film crew, two friends are employed as extras. One has aspirations to get his own script turned into a movie and the other is mesmerized by the leading actress.
The film does not accurately portray the town and its people and soon the extras begin to feel abused as the glamour wears off.
A suicide ensues and it is soon apparent that the funeral is not seen as a reason to take a break in filming. The crew appear to have their own agenda without any concern for the actual people involved…

Tickets: £18 conc. £16


Tues 29th May - Sat 2nd June 2018 7:45pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm


West Side Story, with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and conception and choreography by Jerome Robbins, is a classic re-telling of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. Its backdrop is the ethnic, working-class Upper West Side neighbourhood of New York in the mid-1950s. The show explores the violent rivalry between two street gangs: the Jets, white New Yorkers and the Sharks, Puerto Rican immigrants. The male protagonist, Tony, a former Jet and best friend of their leader Riff, falls in love with Maria, the younger sister of the Sharks’ leader, Bernardo. Prejudice and pride fuel a gritty violence which ultimately ends in tragedy.
The incredibly intricate score and extended dance sequences bring light and shade to this musical, with well-known stand-outs like Maria, America, Somewhere, Tonight, I Feel Pretty, and Gee, Office Krupke among many others.
The show’s creative lens on social strife marked a turning point in American musical theatre, with themes of prejudice, family, love and neighbourhood rivalry.

We are pleased to present this Comedy - A CHORUS OF DISAPPROVAL by Alan Ayckbourn by arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH limited. A diffident widower attempts to escape loneliness by joining the local amateur light operatic. By accident rather than by design (in fact by not saying no to anything be it a request to obtain confidential information from his company or an offer of illicit sex) he advances from a small part to the lead. Parallels are skilfully drawn between The Beggars Opera and the day to day activities of the society which is performing it.

Charles decides to convert part of the mansion into a comfortable guest house for discerning gentlefolk. 1939 Today, the Inspector responsible for investigating the original case, returns, to inform Charles that his wife has escaped from the asylum, where she was kept, and that she is now on her way to kill Charles. Inspector Pratt becomes Charles’s armed protector. Before long a number of mysterious guest begin to arrive at the house, each with their own dark secret.

Into the Woods

Author: music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine

Into the Woods

The musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from "Little Red Riding Hood", "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Rapunzel", and "Cinderella", as well as several others. The musical is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family (the original beginning of The Grimm Brothers' Rapunzel), their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.

Once in every show…. there’s a song that goes like this….RArthur, King of the Britons, is on a special quest to find a rabble of knights good enough to join him and rule around his round table in Camelot, so he sets off with his faithful companion, Patsy to find his “Grail”.
On his way he manages to come across the Knights that go Ni, the Lady of the Lake, a set of cheer-leading Laker Girls, some rather rude French people and a man who’s “Not Dead Yet’. RMix together some of Monty Python’s best loved song, “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life” and some “Fisch Schlapping” and you have Monty Python’s hilarious and riotous humour brought alive on stage by the award winning Sharnbrook Mill Theatre Trust.
Spamalot has everything a hit musical needs; sparkling costumes, jokes a plenty, boundless energy, lots of hair flicking and just a few reference to a once popular tinned meat.
Join King Arthur and his knights for a night of fun - and remember, “What happens in Camelot, stays in Camelot”.

Dial M for Murder

Author: by Frederick Knott
Director James Kay

Dial M for Murder

Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder and blackmails an old acquaintance into strangling her and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately things don’t go according to plan and Tony’s cunningly orchestrated scheme begins to unravel. Keys, lies, deceit and and double cross are on the menu, and the tension mounts, as Tony has to use all his wits and guile to shake off a relentless policeman.
Full of twists, turns and suspense, this claustrophobic drama of deception, passion and betrayal from Frederick Knott – author of Wait Until Dark – is a masterpiece of writing that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is one of the most famous of all stage thrillers, and it has lost none of its power to grip and surprise, and will be an exciting finish to our season.
It was filmed in 1954 by the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock and starred Ray Milland and Grace Kelly.

Orchestrations by Michael Starobin
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe)
All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe www.mtishows.co.uk

Assassins

Liverpool theatre company WHAT WE DID NEXT will be performing the award-winning musical, Assassins, from 6-9 June at Unity Theatre.
Assassins delves into the lives of nine people throughout history who have attempted to assassinate the most powerful man on Earth, some with greater degrees of success than others, but all sharing in the desire to pull the trigger.
First performed off-Broadway in 1990, it went on to win five Tony Awards after it debuted on Broadway in 2004.
The complex score from Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, Company) takes the audience on a dark journey of discovery as we explore the motivations behind wanting to kill the President of the United States. John Weidman’s non-linear book enables the assassins from different historical periods to meet and interact, examining why they were prepared to go so far in the name of the American Dream.
What We Did Next is excited to return to the Unity stage, a venue it has performed in regularly since 2011, with their take on several modern and classical musicals such as Pippin, Bonnie & Clyde, Carousel, Urinetown, Spring Awakening and Bat Boy. The company has also presented Rent, Three Sides, The Last 5 Years and two other Sondheim productions - Company and Into the Woods.
It is fitting that the company returns to Sondheim in the year it celebrates its tenth birthday, having performed Sondheim’s Company as their inaugural production.
“We’ve contemplated tackling Assassins ever since the early days and it just feels like the right time to take it on with ten years’ experience under our belts. We’re reminded of our first challenge a decade ago by returning to Sondheim’s work and the current political climate encourages audiences to consider this piece in a new light.”. Zoë Thirsk, Assassins Director.

two one-act plays by an all-female cast and Director.

The Book Club
The regular ladies of the Book Club, all friends since school, are wary of letting a newcomer to the village join. But there’s more to Paula than meets the eye, and she may even have what it takes to get around the appallingly snobbish Belle.

After the Fete
The ladies of the village book club have gathered to discuss Neville Shute’s ‘On The Beach’. Some of the members have not read the book and the others seem more interested in discussing – or rather gossiping – about people and events in the village which spill over into the meeting.

Sat Mat 2:00pm


Rude Frenchmen, can-can dancers, the Lady of the Lake and her Laker girls, killer rabbits, catapulting cows and the somewhat odd Knights who say ‘Ni!’ are just part of the adventures and dangers awaiting King Arthur and his trusty (sorry) rusty Knights of the very, very, very round table in their quest for the Holy Grail!
Spamalot charts King Arthur’s quest, firstly to gather his Knights of the very, very, very, very Round table, then to find the Holy Grail. Arthur and his band of brave, cowardly, confused, flatulent and fragrant (it is the 10th century after all) knights have to dodge over-enthusiastic Finnish singers, the plague, the appalling French and their flying cows. Along the way they must find a shrubbery, do battle with a homicidal Knight who has no idea when he’s beaten and a psychotic rabbit. Oh and do quite a lot of singing – the most ridiculous lyrics you’ve ever heard. All in the best possible taste!
Lovingly ripped off from the classic 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is the fun-filled irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend that has had audiences roaring in the aisles around the world. A smash hit on Broadway and the West End, it was nominated for a staggering 14 Tony Awards on its’ debut, winning Best Musical and was seen by an astonishing 2 million people during its original run.
Join us on an adventure of a lifetime, (no sorry lunchtime). CODS is proud to bring you one of the most hilarious and silliest pieces of theatre you’re ever likely to encounter.

Blood Brothers is the hugely popular play by the well-known author of Educating Rita, Willy Russell. It is perceptive, hugely entertaining, funny and thought-provoking. It tells the tale of twin brothers who are born into a large working-class family and what happens when their mother decides to have one of them adopted. Blood Brothers looks at the differences and conflicts of their upbringings, their relationships with each other and with their real and adopted mothers.
A compelling play and absolute “must-see”.

The play tells of the search for the "American Dream" and what happens when a man can't attain it. The play tells the story of 63 year old salesman Willy Loman, who has strived to achieve the "American Dream" and cannot understand why he has not been successful. It explores his relationships with those around him; his jealousy of his older brother and his fortune; and how he tries to manipulate the lives of his sons, Biff and Happy, through his own dreams. Told using flashbacks and illusions, the play depicts Willy's struggle through a series of soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, sons and business associates. With a fantastic cast, new simplistic take on the setting and inventive lighting, the show promises to be a hit.

Meet The Essex Girls Who Changed The World!
50 years ago, on the 7th of June 1968, headlines were made when female machinists at the Ford Dagenham went on strike. Those women turned of their sewing machines and walked out in protest at the pay grades which unfairly favoured men.
The strike lasted three weeks and made the front pages. The women brought production in the UK to a halt and cost Ford Motor Company millions of pounds in lost orders. On the 28th of June the women went to Whitehall to meet union leaders, Ford executives, and Barbara Castle, the then Employment Secretary.
A deal was struck at the TUC conference and the women returned to work. This led to the concept of the 1970 equal pay act.
Today we see still issues such as the Gender Pay Gap in the headlines and we must not forget those women who changed working life for millions of women!
Our show “Made In Dagenham” The Musical, honours the 50th Anniversary of those events.
Set in the 1960s, and based on the hit movie. It is an uplifting musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.

Somewhere between a delayed transatlantic flight and the clocks changing, Lisa has lost an hour - she's an hour slow, and it's spoiling her life.
So she's travelled to the country of Dissocia to try and get it back, but Dissocia is a surreal and wonky place, filled with insecurity guards, musical fields, time flies and a violent scapegoat, all under threat from the Black Dog King.
Is this an alternate universe or a state of delirium? And are the characters she meets along the way friends or foes?
But Lisa's partner, her sister, doctors and nurses want her to come back to the real world.
Please note this production is not recommended for children under the age of 14.

Funny Money!!

Author: Comedy by Ray Cooney
Directed by Ann Mortimer

Funny Money!!

Never has this master of farce been frenetically funnier! Henry A. Perkins, a mild mannered C.P.A, accidently picks up the wrong briefcase one full of money. Henry assumes it is illicit cash and he decides to keep it. Knowing that the former owner must have his briefcase, he rushes home to book one way fares to Barcelona. He tells his confused wife to leave everything behind; if she doesn't like Barcelona, they can go to Bali. In fact, they can buy Bali! The doorbell rings as they wait for their taxi. The police detective at the door thinks Henry was soliciting in the men's room of the local pub actually, he was sitting in the loo counting the cash. The bell rings again. Another detective arrives thinking Henry is dead; a man with bullet holes in his head and Henry's briefcase were found in the Thames. Henry's inept attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations.

Author: Bizet

Venue: St Barnabas Church Centre, Erdington, B23 6SY

Tickets: £10/9

Friday 22nd June 7.30pm
Saturday 23rd June 2.30pm
BROC’s new production of Carmen moves the action to a faceless estate in the North of England, where young women are devalued and sexually exploited, both by law enforcement and local gangs. Carmen and her teenage friends have become used to a lifestyle where men entirely disregard them as people, and instead have expectations of sexual favours in return for money and alcohol. At the same time, they are used as mules by drug runners, with the hope that they might become customers. In this toxic environment, Carmen and a local policeman tentatively begin a romance that will drag both of them down, until it’s too late to find their way back.
Inspired and horrified by the stories that have come out of recent BBC documentaries Three Girls and Drugsland, we hope this piece explores how poverty and the marginalisation of the working classes has bred situations where women in particular are treated as less than human and degraded as property. All of this is set against Bizet’s timeless and heartbreaking score, which has already convinced generations of music lovers that opera is worth trying! Adult themes throughout and not suitable for under 12s.

We Are Three Sisters

Author: by Blake Morrison

We Are Three Sisters

Against the backdrop of a windswept northern village, three remarkable young women live their lives brightly.
In Haworth in the 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage, where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And throughout their confined lives intensely lived… they write.
With a touch of poetic licence, Morrison shows us the overwhelming humanity, charged emotions and brooding unease which characterise the Brontë household – and that of Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

Every Town has its Cocktail Bar where everybody wants to be seen. From the check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads. We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the Pina Coladas and the practised smiles. Relationships are tested and tempers fray as the evening wears on, but each of them has a story of their own to tell.

Anything Goes

Anything Goes

First performed in 1934, Anything Goes features music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The original book was a collaborative effort by Guy Bolton and P G Wodehouse, heavily revised by the team of Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. The story concerns madcap antics aboard the SS American ocean liner bound from New York to London. Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Evangelist turned nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope. The musical introduced such songs as 'Anything Goes', 'You're the Top', and 'I Get a Kick Out of You'.
Since its debut at the Alvin Theatre (now known as the Neil Simon Theatre) on Broadway, the musical has been revived several times in the United States and the UK, and has been filmed twice

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Author: Music and lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM. Book by HUGH WHEELER
From an adaptation by CHRISTOPHER BOND, Originally directed by HAROLD PRINCE
Orchestrations by JONATHAN TUNICK. Originally produced on Broadway by Richard Barr, Charles Woodward, Robert Fryer, Mary Lea Johnson, Martin Richards in association with Dean and Judy Manos
An amateur production presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe)
All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun.
Sweeney Todd opened on Broadway in 1979 and in the West End in 1980. It won the Tony Award for Best Musical and Olivier Award for Best New Musical. It has since had numerous revivals as well as a film adaptation.
This new production of Sweeney Todd will evoke the spirit and feel of the original play on which it is based and the source material which inspired it. Written in the 1840s, the characters of Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett first appeared in the Penny Dreadful ‘The String of Pearls’. Written at the height of Fleet Street’s influence on the print industry the paper was produced cheaply for the working classes as ‘sensationalist media’ that would often inspire acts of crime and violence. Christopher Bond’s play and Sondheim’s musical capture the melodrama of the original source and in its original production, evoked the wider ‘Beehive’ structure of Victorian society. In a contemporary world once again ruled by sensationalist media, the idea of ‘Fleet Street’ as a political influencer and oppressor is all the more relevant. The mechanics of the print industry in the 1860s and Sweeney Todd’s legacy as a creation of terror moulded by the social structure will be explored in a physical and relevant manner.

All Shook Up

All Shook Up is a new musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It's NOT a biographical revue. It takes place in 1955, somewhere in middle America, where one girl's dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll. Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like "Heartbreak Hotel," "Love Me Tender," "Don't Be Cruel," "Can't Help Falling in Love," and of course the title tune.

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood smash hit musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years.
This charmingly tongue in cheek comedy tells the story of the meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn as he stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

Mrs Warren's Profession

Author: by George Bernard Shaw

Mrs Warren's Profession

George Bernard Shaw’s scathing comedy about social hypocrisy and the excesses of capitalism.
Mrs. Kitty Warren worked her way out of the London slums and now lives abroad, having provided her daughter Vivie with the education and means to grow into a smart, independent young woman of strong convictions. When Mrs. Warren returns, mother and daughter discover that neither is the woman they thought they knew.
This provocative comedy was written in 1893. It was originally banned by the Lord Chamberlain and eventually performed in 1902.

Box Office: 07541 346639

Mon 7th - Sat 12th May 2018 7:30pm
The Barony Players are delighted to announce our Spring 2018 production as Graham Linehan’s stage adaption of the Ealing comedy classic, The Ladykillers. Rehearsals are well underway as is a traditional “Barony set build”. Tickets are now on sale via our online Box Office or by calling 07541 346639 and are already selling fast.
The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?

“This is no pale stage rip-off but a new-written piece of perfection.” – The Times
“A joy from start to finish.” – Daily Express
“The show works and, at its considerable best, works triumphantly.” – The Daily Telegraph
“An exuberantly inventive evening.” – The Guardian

After the fun and frolic of their adventures in Ladies’ Day as seen at the Quay back in March 2017, Pearl, Jan, Linda and Shelley return in the sequel ‘Ladies Down Under’ which, as its name suggests, follows the ladies on an Australian sojourn.
If you saw Ladies’ Day you’ll know the quartet ended up winning a ‘lorra lolly’ on a six horse accumulator bet during Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot and, some eighteen months later, are about to depart for a four week mega holiday to Australia when Ladies Down Under kicks off.
As with Ladies’ Day the foursome get up to plenty of high jinks and encounter a variety of men they have fun with, laugh with and (maybe) love with.
All the women used to work together in a Hull fish packing factory, but since Ladies’ Day Pearl has taken early retirement and Shelley left soon after the women won their six figure sum.

9th May 2018 to 12th May 2018
Patience, by Gilbert and Sullivan, is the duo’s comic opera lampooning the Aesthetic Movement of the 1880s, with fleshly poets, lovesick maidens, an earthy milkmaid and burly dragoons galore. With some of Sullivan’s finest music and Gilbert at his most satirical, this is a rare treat to enjoy at the Maddermarket.

PRICES FROM: £17.50


9th-12th May


Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, Spamalot is the fresh Broadway hit and irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend. Rude flatulent Frenchmen, cancan dancers, the Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls, killer rabbits, catapulting cows, and the somewhat odd Knights who say “Ni” are just part of the adventures and dangers awaiting King Arthur and his knights of the very, very, very round table in their quest for the Holy Grail.
Songs from the show include “I Am Not Dead Yet”, “The Song That Goes Like This”, “Run Away!” and the classic hit “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life”. On Broadway the show was the recipient of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical and fourteen Tony Award nominations.”

Barry Manilow's unforgettable hit songs are brought to life onstage in this entertaining nightclub spectacle.
"Her name was Lola. She was a showgirl…" So begins this tale of romance and stardom that has captivated audiences across the globe. With sensational originality, Copacabana is a show that will leave you breathless.
Stephen, a present day aspiring songwriter, is in the midst of writing a tune telling the story of Lola: fresh off the plane from Tulsa, she arrives in New York with show-biz aspirations. Tony is a bartender/composer who falls in love with her and helps her become a Copa girl. Lola, of course, attracts the amorous attentions of Rico. When Rico goes a bit too far by abducting Lola and taking her to his rival nightclub in Havana, Tony and the whole Copacabana crew set off to rescue Lola!

England. Easter 1955. Ruth Ellis - the last woman to be hanged in Great Britain - for the murder of her racing driver lover, David Blakely.
Public protests, petitions and newspaper articles at the time all appealed for clemency. Why did the Home Secretary not issue a last minute stay of execution, as had so often happened before, despite a plea from the Judge in the case himeself!
The Thrill of Love is a sensative examination of the real Ruth Ellis and her situation. It is an emotional script and, perhaps surprisingly, MArie Straker's production contains laughter as well as almost every other emotion - and all in one evening. Do not miss!

WINNER: TOTTON FESTIVAL OF DRAMA 2018 - BEST PLAY, BEST ACTOR, BEST TECHNICAL ACHIEVEMENT, BEST ORIGINAL SCRIPT
Bully Beef and Whizzbangs written and directed by Chris Hawley
This darkly comic World War I tale is set in the battlefields of France. Smudger, a new arrival, is keen to shoot his first German, while Harry is more interested in keeping his head down, thinking of home and enjoying his mug of tea. Full of trench humour, WHIZZBANGS is a wry look at two reluctant heroes. How will our boys cope with the ever-present danger of being shot or blown to smithereens? Features authentic WWI costumes, props and a 12-foot section of trench.

Darlings, You Were Wonderful! by Derek Lomas, directed by Paul Cresser
A comedy... the action takes place in the dressing room of a Little Theatre, where the all-women Amazon Theatre Group is performing a little-known 17th century Spanish play for a drama festival. With multiple tensions and increasing chaos backstage, missing cast member Lesley finally staggers in, very drunk, dressed in full motorcycle gear... Will the festival judge be impressed by the seething passion of the cast - and with Lesley’s motorcycle regalia? *Cast member nominated for BEST ACTRESS at Totton Drama Festival 2018
