Amanda Whittington's gripping play dramatises the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and takes a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines.
Born in Rhyl, a divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there's more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Then Ruth meets the wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver with whom she becomes obsessed. Fame comes - but not the way she imagines.

Our Country’s Good:
Friday 5 July, Sunday 7 July (matinee), Tuesday 9 July, Friday 12 July, Saturday 13 July (matinee & evening), Wednesday 17 July, Friday 19 July, Saturday 20 July (evening).

This July, Garden Suburb Theatre will be returning to one of our favourite venues – the Little Wood Open Air Theatre, NW11 6QS (entrances from Denman Drive, Oakwood Road and Addison Way), for our annual set of summer performances.
But this time there’s a big difference: we’ll be putting on not one but TWO shows, so there’ll be plenty of opportunity to experience some top-notch outdoors amateur theatre.
A pair of talented casts will be getting their teeth into The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare, directed by Diana Bromley, and Our Country’s Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker, directed by Kayne McCutcheon. These two very different plays will be running in rep, with nine performances each between 4th and 20th July – and as an added extra, if you book to see both shows we’ll be running a Buy One Get One Half Price deal which will give you great value for money as well as the chance to see two moving, exciting and engrossing pieces of theatre.
The Merchant of Venice probably needs no introduction – this Shakespeare classic explores the universal and always relevant themes of justice, intolerance and law, alongside a number of romantic subplots. We’re really looking forward to bringing this well-known text and characters like Portia and Shylock to life in a new, exciting way. Anyone who has seen one of Garden Suburb Theatre’s previous Shakespeare productions (like Measure for Measure last year) will be aware of just how well his plays work in the Little Wood Open Air space, so this is one not to be missed.
Our Country’s Good, by female playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker, tells the amazing true story of the first penal colony in Australia, focusing on a group of convicts who put on a play under the guidance of Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark. With a variety of colourful characters based on real people, actors playing multiple roles, and a brilliant mixture of comedy and tragedy, this dramatic and insightful play shines a light on the power of theatre to combat prejudice and bring people together.

It’s 1936 and nail-biting thrillers like The Shadow and Lights out are all the rage in radio dramas. Tonight, the WSCC station might put itself on the map too, when the first episode of their own Radio Suspense Theatre takes the airwaves.
As love blossoms backstage, and a plucky sound technician steps in for an absent star, the company bands together to bring two original, thrilling tales of suspense to life, framed by music and ads of the era.

Join Stage 27 for tales from a bygone past……

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to performance, and there will be refreshments available.

Helene Alving is about to dedicate an orphanage she has built in the memory of her dead philandering husband to deplete her husband’s wealth so that their son, Oswald, might not inherit anything from him. She discovers that her son Oswald is suffering from syphilis that he inherited from his father.She also discovers that Oswald has fallen in love with Regina Engstrand, Mrs. Alving’s maid, which is a serious problem because Regina is revealed to be an illegitimate daughter of Captain Alving, and therefore Oswald is falling in love with his half-sister. When the sibling relationship is exposed, Regina leaves, and Oswald is in a state of despair and anguish. He asks his mother to help him die by an overdose of morphine in order to end his suffering from his disease, which could put him into a helpless vegetative state.Mrs. Alving has to confront this decision: whether or not to euthanize her son in accordance with his wishes.

Venue: Moot Hall, Harlow CM20 3AG

Box Office: TicketSource

14th, 15th and 16th July 2019, 7.30pm

The man in the end cell isn’t like the others.
The man in the end cell is a gentleman, or so she’s heard.
The man in the end cell can read.
The man in the end cell is Dick Turpin.
Unknowing that she is imprisoning one of the most dangerous outlaws in the country, Abigail visits the curious man in the end cell each day, bringing him his meals and letters.
But there is more to life than waiting on the scum of the earth, and Abigail knows it.
In exchange for ale pilfered from her father, she begs for writing lessons – her key to the outside world lying in making sense of the spidery black letters on white parchment.
For although she is the gaoler, she is as much imprisoned as he – born within the four walls, she has never known life outside the cells.
What starts as a bargain morphs into a strange, uneasy friendship.
When Abigail finds out the true identity of the man she has been visiting, she ought to flee – but instead offers him a new deal, her liberty in exchange for his.
With a brand new script, set, and score, I Am Turpin is a ground-breaking piece of immersive historical drama from the critically-acclaimed playwright Antonia Goddard.

Somewhere in Surrey, Shingley Hill Allotments is not doing very well. There is not much interest and commitment from a lot of the allotment holders and it is in a bit of a state. The exception is Margaret Ellwood. She prides herself on her allotment which is looked after by her long suffering husband, Eric. She despairs at the way that Shingley Hill Allotments is declining.
Then, the Inspector of allotments from the council unexpectedly turns up. He has been sent on a secret assignment to assess Shingley Hill allotments as the council are looking to redevelop the site. He gets to know Margaret and also meet some of the unusual characters who have allotment plots at Shingley Hill. He sees how bad things have become and lets slip to Margaret that the Council have plans! Margaret, much to the frustration of Eric, decides to take matters into her own hands. She decides to reform the Allotment Committee.
Margaret decides that there is going to be a big shake up at Shingley Hills Allotments – things are going to improve and she plans a grand relaunch. A lavish function to show off to everyone just how good Shingley Hills actually is. There is lots of detailed planning and jobs are allocated. Various dignatories including the local MP are invited to the great re-launch.
Will it all go to plan? Will it be a success? Will Margaret save Shingley Hill Allotments?

Box Office: https://www.theatreroyal.com/

16th - 20th July 2019

In addition to Les Miserables, the great Victor Hugo also wrote this equally famous and revered literary classic.
The tale of Quasimodo- bell ringer of Notre Dame, and his hopeless love for Esmeralda, inspired a Walt Disney animation and many more well known adaptations.
But NOW there is a brand new theatrical experience which brings the original book – with all its romance and passion, bitter jealousy and murderous subterfuge- vividly to life!
This is a story as relevant and poignant today as it was when it was first written, both hilariously funny and heartbreakingly tragic.
So, ring out the bells! .. because this Summer, Western College Players are celebrating their 90th anniversary year with their most exciting, ambitious and entertaining theatrical event yet…

Set in early 19th Century France, and follows the story of Jean Valjean, a convict who through the kindness of others, finds redemption; but, having broken parole and changed his identity in order to make a new life as the kindly mayor of a small town, is hunted mercilessly by Javert, who is unable to believe that anyone with a criminal record, can be anything but evil. After rescuing Cosette, the small daughter of a woman forced into poverty, from near-slavery, and escaping re-arrest by Javert, he reaches Paris. Years later, grown into a beautiful young woman, Cosette falls in love with a student and revolutionary, Marius. But their marriage is forbidden by Marius's aunt, on the eve of 1832 revolution. The revolution is brutally quelled, and Marius is rescued by Jean Valjean. Javert, who had been taken captive by the revolutionaries, is released by Valjean, but unable to comprehend this kind behaviour from someone who he viewed as evil, Javert takes his own life. Marius and Cosette are finally given permission to marry, and Valjean gives them a diary telling his life story....

30 May - 8 June 2019

Evita is one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. It tells the story of Eva María Duarte de Perón, her rise from rural poverty to become the first lady of Argentina and her transformation into a national icon. Winning 7 Tony Awards in its first year on Broadway, the show features songs including “A New Argentina”, “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, “High Flying Adored” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”.
Epic in its scope, ambition and stature, Evita was a ground-breaking musical when it made its debut in 1978. In the intervening years it has lost none of its power to move audiences and sweep them up into the whirlwind life and extraordinary story of one of the most charismatic figures of the late 20th Century.

I Am a Camera was initially inspired by Christopher Isherwood’s The Berlin Stories. The play itself went on to inspire the musical show and film ‘Cabaret’ which famously starred Liza Minelli. It centres around Isherwood’s life during the time he spent in Germany during the Second World War and the action takes place in the bed-sitting room of Fraulein Schneider’s lodging house in Berlin. Confronting frank subjects such as pregnancy and unwanted racism it’s a tellingly real piece of history and life.

Introducing Horseshoe Theatre Company. Their debut play is a play written by the acclaimed British playwright Richard Harris in 1984 called ‘Stepping Out’, a play which concerns eight individuals from disparate backgrounds and with differing motivations who attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy North London church hall. Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions and showing little co-ordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness. The dance routines are the background for the focus of the play, the relationship and interaction of different people.

'This is the most spectacular, gripping and wickedly entertaining piece of lèse-majesté that British theatre has ever seen .....' The Telegraph
The play opens in Westminster Abbey with the death of Queen Elizabeth II – and finds Prince Charles struggling in his new role as King in the strange atmosphere which grips the Nation.RIn turn domestic satire around the Royal Family, political thriller as Charles clashes with Parliament and Shakespearean history/tragedy as he is forced to submit to the will of the people, the play explores the luxury and isolation of the greatest power in the land – the Monarch.

They said it was... UNSTAGEABLE
They said it was... UNACHIEVABLE
They said it was... IMPOSSIBLE in today’s financial climate.
But we’re going ahead and doing it anyway!
Based on the timeless story from one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, the Southwick Players present this rip roaring comedy stage adaptation, which condenses the epic tale so that it can be told by just seven (7) actors.
We follow an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur.
He falls low as a galley slave and rises to become a champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ...
All while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere.
Complete with chariot race, sea battle, and stage combat, Patrick Barlow weaves his compressed style popularized by The 39 Steps into one of the largest stories ever told.

8 June 2019

Chrissie Garrett directs Mike Bartlett’s Contractions as BCP’s entry to The Lighthorne Festival of One Act Plays and the Oxfordshire Drama Network Festival.
From the writer of Doctor Foster and King Charles III, Contractions is a dystopian play; a powerful, disturbing, chilling drama about work and play in which the audience are invited to a meeting. Come in. Sit down. How are you? Emma's been seeing Darren. She thinks she's in love. Her boss thinks she's in breach of contract. The play shows there is no place for individualism and privacy in a growing corporate world, and that compliance is the only accepted way forward.
BCP have taken part in The Lighthorne Festival since its inauguration in 2013 and love performing in this welcoming environment.
Our performance this year at Lighthorne Village Hall is on 8 June 2019.
The evening is already sold out but there are tickets available for our performance at the Oxfordshire Drama Network Festival at the Unicorn Theatre, Abingdon, on 4 June 2019.
Both festivals being in the same week mean it’s going to be a busy time for BCP’s cast and crew!
If you can’t make the festival performances, there is a Preview Performance at Church House, Adderbury on 29 May 2019 which is followed by a Q & A Session with the Director and Cast. Tickets are £8.00 (including a glass of wine or soft drink) and are available from Adderbury Library or chrissiegarrett@btinternet.com / 01295 810412.

Harriet solves her financial problems by entertaining two married gentlemen callers on different days of the week. The scheme falters when her friend Anne arrives hotly pursued by her husband and both of Harriet’s lovers turn up at the same time, closely followed by their irate wives. The indescribable confusion that ensues builds to a rich complexity of mistaken identity, splendidly farcical situations and a climax of comic wizardry.

When Lizzie met Maggie. What might have happen when two female icons of the twentieth century were forced into each other’s company? Handbagged is a sharply comic imagining of the fictional relationship between Queen Elizabeth who vowed to serve society and Margaret Thatcher who allegedly denied society’s existence. With such apparently contrasting beliefs, could there be anything other than tension between the two?

Venue: The Brentwood Theatre, Shenfield Road 15

Thursday 13 - Saturday 15 Jun 2019 8:00pm

Written in the 1950s high-lighting the atrocities of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, The Crucible used primary source documents/real names to play out on stage these violent killings.
In the Puritan town of Salem, Massachusetts, the town minister, Reverend Parris, discovers his daughter Betty, niece Abigail, and other girls ‘dancing’ in the forest with his slave Tituba. Betty faints in fright at being discovered and reprimanded, thus the girls begin to claim the devil possessed them to do it. They accuse any adults in the town with whom they disagreed of being witches. “From time to time, we human beings have periods of moral panic that overtakes us.” The Crucible is one such timeless telling. While it focuses on the literal witch hunts, it is also an allegory for any number of misguided crusades through the ages, including ominous opinions against select groups of people in our current state of the world. This extraordinary classic is as relevant today as ever. Brought to you exclusively (and unashamedly) by Early Doors Productions.

13 Jun – 15 Jun 7:15pm

Fasten your seatbelts, return your tray tables to the upright position and prepare to blast off! In this Olivier-award-winning musical, the many works of Shakespeare are aligned with a fabulous rock ‘n’ roll score to create a fun-filled, jiving-in-the-aisles musical. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest and the 1956 sci-fi classic film Forbidden Planet, RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET finds a spaceship, helmed by Captain Tempest, making an emergency landing on the uncharted planet D’Illyria. The only residents there are the mad scientist Doctor Prospero, his daughter Miranda, and their robot Ariel. They were banished into hyperspace when Miranda was just a baby, and she has known no other world than this. Featuring rock ‘n’ roll hits of the 50s and 60s (“Great Balls of Fire”, “The Monster Mash”, “Good Vibrations”, and others), a B-movie atmosphere, and dialogue in iambic pentameter, Return to the Forbidden Planet is Shakespeare’s unwritten rock ‘n’ roll masterpiece. Throw in a roller-skating robot, unrequited love, and a scary space monster, and you’ve got one groovy show!

This show replaces the previously advertised show - The Wedding Singer.

I Love You Because

Box Office: https://www.atgtickets.com/

Tue 25th - Sat 29 June 2019 7:45pm
Sat Mat 2:45pm

I Love You Because is a modern-day musical love story: think the cast of Friends goes to the bar from Cheers on a Tinder date. It is a nostalgic, feel-good heart-warming tale about love, life and relationships, full of all the ups and downs, lows and highs that you would expect from any classic romantic comedy. With a sumptuous score by Joshua Salzman, and the acerbic wit of Ryan Cunningham (book and lyrics), this drama-desk nominated show deserves to be seen.
This musical is the story of Austin, a young and uptight greeting-card writer whose life is changed when he meets the enigmatic and free-spirited photographer Marcy. Throw in a brother who sees himself as God’s-gift to women (provided there are no strings attached), a best friend who sees relationships as calculations and probabilities, and a whole host of slightly larger-than-life New-Yorkers, and you get the perfect Romance tale for the modern age: will they learn to love each other, warts and all?
With a nod towards Jane Austen’s exploration of what attracts people to one another, laced with some true Mr Darcy/Elizabeth Bennett passion-fuelled arguments, this musical is set to question what it is like to date in a modern world: how do you meet someone in today’s society? Is the best way to meet Mr or Mrs Right to date someone who is completely Mr or Mrs Wrong? Just how do you go from friends-with-benefits to something more? Is it even possible?
Epsom Players are delighted to be bringing this comedy musical to the Wimbledon Stage. Dubbed as being ‘everything an off-Broadway musical should be’ and ‘a charming piece of work that will send you home smiling’, get booking those tickets!

26 to 29 June, 2019 7:30pm

SDC’s production of Flare Path by Terence Rattigan will mark end of RAF’s centenary year

Rattigan’s play is a tribute to the collective spirit of wartime bomber crews and their partners, and drew on his own wartime experiences as a gunner and Flight Lieutenant in Coastal Command.

Set in the residents’ lounge of a small Lincolnshire hotel during 1941, a place where the RAF pilots and crews would ‘hang out’ before and after raids, the core of the play concerns a personal dilemma between three characters - Peter Kyle, a successful Hollywood actor whose star is about to wane, his former lover the young actress Patricia Warren and her husband Flight Lieutenant Teddy Graham DFC.

Although it was Patricia who initiated the break-up with Peter, she finds that she still has strong feelings for him, and his unexpected appearance at the hotel forces her to face up to the conflict of her emotions and decide who needs her more – the former lover who is afraid of what his future holds or her pilot husband, whose breezy manner is a veneer to cover his shattered nerves.

Commenting on the play, director Rosalind Garrard said: “Flare Path was first performed in 1942 in London at a time when there was constant attack by enemy aircraft, but nevertheless it drew large audiences who felt a close affinity with the characters in the play and it enjoyed a long and successful run. The plot reveals how the contained emotions, typical of the British at that time, underpinned the strength of the air crew who routinely risked their lives on every mission, as well as those who remained behind. The story also shows up what love and loyalty can really mean in what were extraordinary conditions".

Bugsy Malone

Venue: Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch

Box Office: www.queens-theatre.co.uk or 01708 443333

Wednesday 26 to Saturday 29th June

Set in 1920s prohibition-era New York, where two rival gangs are fighting for turf, the story follows smooth city slicker Bugsy Malone. Bugsy falls for a would-be singer, Blousey Brown, who ultimately dreams of making it big in Hollywood. The musical showcases a world of speakeasies, glamorous club singers and deception, and even a revolutionary new weapon which both gangs are keen to get their hands on to try and eliminate the opposition. Throw in a potential championship boxer and an army of "down and outs" and you have a musical with grown up themes, this time around performed by a grown up cast. Bugsy Malone has traditionally only ever been performed by children, but SOS will now have the opportunity to bring out the more mature aspects of the show without taking away the fun and humour that comes with Alan Parker's tremendous parody of the film noir genre. Director David Pridige says: "It will be an exciting and fun challenge to portray these characters with their more adult traits. From the brash Fat Sam, who owns the Grand Slam Speakeasy and is constantly surrounded by his gang of mobsters; to the sultry and sexy Tallulah, who is the Grand Slam's main draw; to the elegant and sophisticated Dandy Dan (who this time around will be Dandy Danielle, with her own equally elegant female gang), there's a character for everyone to root for." There are of course certain aspects of the show that will remain unchanged: Splurge guns and custard pies will be our weapons of choice, echoing the silent movie era, and all this will be set against the brilliant and familiar songs of Paul Williams

Using a post-colonial analysis of the play, we are telling a tale which mirrors the colonial past of Britain, demonstrating the past through an artistic medium rather than a history book. A spectacular retelling of Shakespeare’s classic “The Tempest”, with exciting physical theatre, dance and an innovative, original score. It promises to be a colourful spectacle with breathtaking movement sequences, astonishing staging, and fantastic music written by Durham University students.

The plot of Spamalot is almost exactly the same as the movie; King Arthur along with his squire, Patsy and a selection of knights go on an epic quest to find the Holy Grail, amongst them are Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot, and Sir Galahad. On their quest they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, a castle full of farting Frenchmen, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight, a killer rabbit and the Knights who say Ni.
Spamalot is jam packed with silly songs to match the action such as “I Am Not Dead Yet,” “The Song that Goes Like This,” and “The Diva’s Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part.” The show also includes the song originally made famous by Monty Python in The Life of Brian, “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” which is always a crowd pleaser!
Spamalot is an evening of all singing, all dancing silliness set in the time of King Arthur and Camelot. You can be sure it’ll be a ‘Knight’ to remember!!

How does this happen?! Come and see what lengths a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.” Featuring some memorable tunes, including the classic "Luck Be a Lady", the hilarious “Adelaide’s Lament,” the romantic “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” and the exuberant "Sit Down Your Rocking the Boat”.

At the very start, let me say that we both have something in common. You don’t know what I’m going to say… and neither do I !
A blend of commedia dell’arte and British farce, ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ is a knockabout comedy set in swingin’ 1963 Brighton, as one man tries to serve, and hoodwink, two employers at the same time.
Throw in a sweet and beautiful, but dimwitted, young woman, a vain actor – is there any other kind? – a woman disguised as her murdered twin brother, a crooked lawyer, and a couple of low-level hoodlums, and it’s almost more than one man can govern.
Music, drama and total mayhem.

A Month of Sundays

Author: Bob Larbey

The Lichfield Players present A Month of Sundays, a play by Bob Larbey, is a bittersweet comedy about growing old.
The main character, Cooper, has voluntarily gone into a nursing home rather than become a burden on his family. We deduce his valiant determination to hold on to his remaining dignity and independence through his banter, as he jokes with the other senior residents, flirts with the female staff, and keeps a close check on his own "record of physical deteriorations". Cooper drives the emotional development of the play with his acerbic wit and waspish asides, but we also glimpse his vulnerability.

Tiptoe Through the Tombstones

Tiptoe Through the Tombstones

Author: by Norman Robbins

Welcome to Monument House, ancestral seat of the Tomb family, professional assassins through the centuries. Mortimer Crayle, a crusty old lawyer, and his secretary Zoe, have gathered the last of the family (an outlandish bunch) to inform them about their inheritance. As fog descends on the gloomy mansion, in the cobwebby corridors things - and people - are seldom what they seem. With poison in every decanter and mysterious disappearances into secret passageways, there is an increasing number of bodies in the cellar.

Who is enemies with whom? Who wants who dead? And just who is Vesta? Join us for a good laugh while trying to work out who will kill who next - and why.

Mix together with one bewildered hostess, add flour eggs and sugar and you've got a recipe for a hilarious new musical comedy which originally aired at the Edinburgh Fringe.
So come and join the folk of Bakewell for their annual bake off, where signature bakes combine with song and dance in a fantastic feast of fun, especially when the European Union steps in to say there must only be one pudding recipe in Bakewell. They decree second round must be added to the competition to resolve the matter once and for all.

Harvey is a Pulitzer-prize winning play and is a lively and funny comedy.
Elwood P Dowd, a good-natured and charming man is befriended by a playful Celtic spirit in the form of a large white rabbit called Harvey.Harvey is invisible unless he chooses to reveal himself and his close friendship has dramatic effects on Elwood’s family and life. Comedy mayhem ensues when they try to commit Elwood to a sanatorium and more than one person sees the fun-loving rabbit.The play pokes fun at psychiatry and at times you wonder if the doctors are in more need of help than their patient. In this screwball comedy, there is a real message of the importance of simple human kindness and it's delivered in a subtle and cheerful way.
If you are in the mood for a wonderful comedy that the whole family can watch together, do yourself a favour and see Harvey

The Mount Home for Retired Theatricals is an unusual place - more like a country house hotel than a home for the elderly. As some of the residents say ... " Waited on hand and foot - no meals to prepare - beds made - heaven!" and the manageress positively encourages residents to carry on working as long as they can.
So when Walter Neville (small-part veteran of 212 films) arrives, he is overhoyed to find some of his best friends in residence. All is well until the serial womaniser, Edmund Sullivan, ex-husband of threeof the residents goes missing - apparently on the run from Russian gangsters. The ladies decide that "He who pays the bills" must be rescued - but how to go about it?
What follows is a truly daft journey into the world of eccentric luvvies!

Meet Eugene Jerome and his family, fighting the hard times and sometimes each other – with laughter, tears, and love.
It’s 1937 in Brighton Beach, New York, during the heart of the Depression where fifteen-year-old Eugene lives with his family. He is witty, perceptive, obsessed with sex, and forever fantasising about his baseball triumphs as star player for the New York Yankees.
As our guide through his “memoirs”, Eugene takes us through a series of trenchant observations and insights that show his family meeting life’s challenges with pride, spirit, and a marvelous sense of humour. As his father says, “If you didn't have a problem, you wouldn’t be living here.”
But, as World War II looms ever closer, Eugene sees his own innocence slipping away as the first important era of his life ends – and a new one begins.

22nd - 25th May 2019

Based on the 2010 film of the same name and featuring a rousing score with emotionally uplifting songs, Made in Dagenham is drawn from the real-life 1968 sewing machinists strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex. This strike was influential in the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970. The musical focuses on the leader of the strike, Rita O’Grady, as she encourages the women of the Ford factory to walk out after they are re-classified as unskilled workers, while their male counterparts see their wages increase.
After Rita is patronised and snubbed by the factory at a union meeting, the women’s grievances over their worker status turn into a fight for equal pay. Determined not to be treated like the poor relation, the women vote unanimously to strike (“Everybody Out”) and encourage the women at the Liverpool factory to strike also. However when the American bosses fly in and lay off 5,000 men as a result, including Rita’s husband Eddie, cracks begin to show in the women’s solidarity. Risking her marriage and friendships, Rita continues her efforts for equality and gives a rousing speech at a televised Trade Union Conference (“Stand Up”), leading to the passing of equal pay within the union. As Eddie finally recognizes his wife’s achievements, the women celebrate their life-changing success.

Venue: Chestnut Grove Theatre, Boundaries Road Balham

Box Office: Online at www.southsideplayers.co.uk or 07914657524

Wednesday 29 May to Saturday 1 June (7.45pm Wed to Friday 3pm Saturday)

Gently does it! Follow-up comedy from Hitch-hiker’s Guide author lands in Balham
Balham’s award-wining theatre group, Southside, will perform ‘Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency’ by Douglas Adams, author of ‘The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’, at Chestnut Grove Academy Theatre….
Dirk Gently is the proprietor of a detective agency whose operation is based on the principle that all things in the universe are fundamentally interconnected. Normally, Dirk specialises in missing cats and messy divorces, but he makes an exception when a fairly gruesome murder means that the existence of human life on earth might be threatened. And he has to cope without the music of Johann Sebastian Bach – because in Dirk Gently’s space-time continuum, no such composer has ever existed. Although pizza does, obviously. And cats (of course).
Confused? Don’t worry, because you are in the hands of Douglas Adams, the genius author of ‘The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’. Douglas Adams himself described ‘Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency’ as a ‘thumping good detective-ghost-horror-who dunnit-time travel-romantic-musical-comedy-epic’. What’s not to like?

Wednesday 29th May – Saturday 1st June 2019 8pm

I Am a Camera was initially inspired by Christopher Isherwood’s The Berlin Stories. The play itself went on to inspire the musical show and film ‘Cabaret’ which famously starred Liza Minelli. It centres around Isherwood’s life during the time he spent in Germany during the Second World War and the action takes place in the bed-sitting room of Fraulein Schneider’s lodging house in Berlin. Confronting frank subjects such as pregnancy and unwanted racism it’s a tellingly real piece of history and life.

Box Office: www.adctheatre.com/evita , 01223 300085

30 May - 8 June 2019

Evita is one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. It tells the story of Eva María Duarte de Perón, her rise from rural poverty to become the first lady of Argentina and her transformation into a national icon. Winning 7 Tony Awards in its first year on Broadway, the show features songs including “A New Argentina”, “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, “High Flying Adored” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”.
Epic in its scope, ambition and stature, Evita was a ground-breaking musical when it made its debut in 1978. In the intervening years it has lost none of its power to move audiences and sweep them up into the whirlwind life and extraordinary story of one of the most charismatic figures of the late 20th Century.

Venue: Stewarton Area Centre, Avenue Street, KA3 5AP Stewarton

Box Office: Tickets priced at a flat rate of £8.00 each are on sale every day at Stewarton Library or can be reserved now by emailing stewartondramagroup@hotmail.co.uk

Thu 30th & Fri 31st May 7:30pm

Plaza Suite will be familiar to many of you who will have enjoyed the classic 1971 comedy film of the same name starring Walter Matthau, which was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture.
The play is composed of three acts, each involving different characters, but all set in Suite 719 of New York City's Plaza Hotel.

The first act, 'Visitor from Mamaroneck', directed by Dee MacColl, introduces the audience to not-so-blissfully wedded couple Sam and Karen Nash (played by David Robertson and Julie Gorman), who are revisiting their honeymoon suite in an attempt by Karen to bring the love back into their marriage. But her plan backfires as the two become embroiled in a heated argument about whether or not Sam is having an affair with his secretary, Jean (played by Dee MacColl).
The second act, 'Visitor from Hollywood', directed by Walter Findlay, involves a meeting between Hollywood movie producer Jesse Kiplinger (played by Jim Goldie) and his old high school girlfriend, suburban housewife, Muriel Tate (played by Laura Mundell). Muriel – well aware of Jesse’s reputation as a smooth-talking ladies' man - has come for nothing more than a chat between old friends, promising herself she will not stay too long. Jesse, however, has other plans in mind and repeatedly attempts to re-ignite the old flame.RThe third act, 'Visitor from Forest Hills', directed by Paul Glasswell, introduces the audience to married couple Roy and Norma Hubley (played by Walter Findlay and Nancy McPherson) on their daughter Mimsey's wedding day. In a rush of nervousness, Mimsey has locked herself in the bathroom and is refusing to leave. There are laughs aplenty, with increasingly outrageous slapstick moments, as her frantic parents attempt to cajole their daughter into attending her own wedding while the gathered guests await the trio's arrival downstairs.
Smaller parts in the play are played by four brand new members of SDG, all of whom joined the group earlier this year - Matthew Montgomerie, Mags McDowall, Kirsty Carson and Adam Rattray.
A licensed bar of wine will be on sale from 7.00pm and during the two intervals. You can find out more about the play, and see some photos of the cast, by following our Facebook Page

Introducing Horseshoe Theatre Company. Their debut play is a play written by the acclaimed British playwright Richard Harris in 1984 called ‘Stepping Out’, a play which concerns eight individuals from disparate backgrounds and with differing motivations who attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy North London church hall. Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions and showing little co-ordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness. The dance routines are the background for the focus of the play, the relationship and interaction of different people.
Directed by the company founder and local lady, Anne Stringer

Following five years in the West End, sell-out runs worldwide and smash hit tours in the UK in 2014, 2015 and 2016 (packed with mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness!), the irresistible Tony Award winning musical created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, co creators of Book of Mormon The Musical and writer of the songs from Disney's Frozen, is the irresistibly charming tale of the loveable characters of a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life's burning issues.
Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account; Brian, the out of work comedian and his therapist fiancee, Christmas Eve; Nicky, the good hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod; internet 'sexpert' Trekkie Monster; Lucy the Slut (the name says it all!) and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster.
Featuring hysterical songs including 'The Internet is for Porn' and 'Everyone's A Little Bit Racist', Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart. Hilarious, cheeky and uproariously entertaining, Avenue Q is a musical like no other.

Another premiere for Solihull as Peterbrook Players (who produced the hilarious Spamalot in 2018 and Singin' In The Rain in 2017) celebrate 50 years of Musical Theatre with their Spring production.
Legally blonde is a high energy, roller coaster of a musical, based on the hit film, written by Lawrence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin.
Elle Woods is dumped by her boyfriend as she is considered "too Marilyn" for him, as he leaves for Harvard Law School. So she sets out to win him back and prove him wrong by getting enrolled too. Along the way she is laughed at, degraded and told she is not good enough, but with her dog bruiser, her sorority friends from Delta Nu and some new friends like Paulette the Hairdresser by her side, she achieves what she had always been told was impossible and much, much more.
Hilariously funny, sassy and dramatic in equal parts this modern classic musical is suitable for all ages and features a great moral story about standing up for what is right and believing in yourself.

Murder in the Studio

Author: Agatha ChristieDirected by Ivan Moody & Lyn Baynham

This is a new venture for the Cuffley Players as (for the first time) we are performing 3 Radio Plays by Agatha Christie. The set is a 1950's BBC Studio and the audience get to watch the cast recording the plays in all their finery (the cast not the audience). In addition we will have an onstage sound person who will create the majority of the sound effects live.
We are very excited about bringing Agatha Christie back to the Cuffley stage. As some of you may know Murder in the Studio was previously Murder on Air when the Agatha Christie Theatre Company toured with it 4 or 5 years ago. It has only recently been licensed for amateur companies and the Cuffley Players will be one of the first to stage it.

The evening will consist of three Radio Plays, Personal Call, Yellow Iris and Butter in a Lordly Dish. They are all different and Yellow Iris is (I believe) the first story Agatha Christie wrote with Hercule Poirot as the lead character. David Suchet was unavailable but our very own Andrew Kent is returning to the stage to perform this challenging role.

Box Office: 01730 816478

Wednesday April 3rd to Saturday April 6th at 7.30

Who’d have guessed how perfectly Michael Frayn and Tom Basden’s plays fit so well together as companion pieces.
‘A Pair of Comedy Shorts’: two contemporary short plays about the foibles and absurdities of human life.
The first play, Doubles, which left audiences “physically helpless with laughter” is a sublimely written piece by the master of farce, Michael Frayn.
It follows the adventures – and misadventures – of two couples holidaying slightly too close for everyone’s comfort in a hotel that looks rather like every other hotel.
The second piece, Party, is an “astonishing well written and incredibly funny play” by the critically acclaimed comedy writer, Tom Basden.
In a humble garden shed, five young idealists have decided to form a new political party ready to take their place on the international stage… as soon as they can decide on a name, a logo, a slogan and any policies at all!

A double-bill of one-act plays about life, love and relationships

GHOST STORY by Mark Ravenhill - directed by Troy Chessman
A satirical look at 'positive thinking', exploring issues ranging from faith healing to women's relationships, poignantly depicting the lies and half-truths we tell ourselves and each other. Director Troy Chessman: “The power lies in the dialogue: the script allows three actresses wonderfully poignant and powerful moments.”

AND TELL SAD STORIES OF THE DEATHS OF QUEENS by Tennessee Williams - directed by Paul Cresser
A tragicomic melodrama by famed US playwright Tennessee Williams, Candy Delaney is a successful interior decorator in steamy New Orleans: a drag queen approaching her 35th birthday, and on the rebound from a 17-year relationship. On the day of the dreaded birthday, her latest 'friend' - a rough sailor - walks out...

Mention "Fame" to anyone and they are bound to think of the exuberant Oscar-winning title song with its high energy chorus." Fame the Musical" is the stage show full of more of the same breathtaking singing and dazzling dancing.
Ultimately a bittersweet but inspiring story of a diverse group of classmates, we follow them in their pursuit of fame through four years of gruelling artistic and academic work at New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s. With honesty and humour the show confronts issues that still face teenagers today - from encountering prejudice, struggling with illiteracy or substance abuse, to more universal themes such as growing up, dedication and determination to succeed.

In a deceptively simple domestic scene of rural tranquillity, two retired nuclear physicists invite a former friend and colleague to their isolated cottage, to catch up on the old days, only for dark recriminations to surface.
Against a background of a disaster at the local power station, she makes a frightening request which confronts the awful question of whether the legacy left by the baby-boomers is a world poisoned for the next generation. We may still listen to Radio 4, but do we really care?
A disturbing, dark comedy, which leaves you pondering some of the big issues.

From the award-winning company who recently brought you ‘West Side Story’, ‘Calamity Jane’, and ‘Singin’ In The Rain’, this spring, Epsom Light Opera Company proudly presents: HOT MIKADO.

ELOC’s production of the musical comedy ‘Hot Mikado’, sees East meet gangster Chicago in this ‘hot’ updating of Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘The Mikado’. With modern jazz arrangements of Arthur Sullivan's glorious music whilst retaining all of W. S. Gilbert's bitingly acerbic wit, this show has everything; beautiful ballads, stunning choreography and laugh-out-loud humour. The show is set in Japan in the late 1940s and transports you to the fantasy city of Titipu, where a ban on flirting has just been passed. A fabulous cast brings to life a story of disguise, intrigue, star-crossed lovers and hopefully a happy ending for all. With a mix of dance and musical styles from blues to swing and gospel, plus a few surprises along the way, classic songs such as ‘The Sun And I’, ‘Three Little Maids’ and ‘Tit Willow’ are transformed into jazz-tastic numbers to have you swingin’ all the way home!

If you like your jazz hot and your comedy cool, you will love this sizzling musical. Be sure to book your tickets today!

10 Apr – 12 Apr 7:30pm

Adapted by Alan Acykbourn, Tons of Money is one of the famous Aldwych Farces, and has all the ingredients for a classic farce – a convoluted plot, mistaken identity, and everyone madly overacting!
An unsuccessful, debt-ridden inventor, Aubrey Allington, and his wife Louise, are presented with a solution to all of their money troubles.
Quickly realising that the money would go no further than to simply pay off their existing debt, the couple hatch a plan to avoid this, a faultless plot so long as definitely dead cousin George does not show up to claim his stake in the money.
With high-speed action, many twists and turns, and a frantic pace you will love this side-splitting, rolling in your seat, riotous comedy.
Produced by Cirencester Theatre Company who brought you the highly successful Brassed Off in 2018

10th - 13th April 2019 7:30pm

186th Production. Volpone was written by Ben Jonson and first performed in the early 1600s. Originally it had 5 acts/34 scenes, a cast of 20+ (2F, 18+M) and ran for over 4 hours with songs and dances! Whilst it had an ingenious plot and some wonderful characters, author Tony Frier thought the original was a bit too ambitious for RDG in the Barn, particularly as the language is of its time and difficult for the modern ear (and some say the Jacobean ear) to understand fully. It is also often criticised for having a sub-plot that simply does not tie into the main plot and serves only to provide a vehicle for Johnson to have a pop at events and personalities of the time, many of which are meaningless to us now.

CTG is proud to present this classic by Arthur Miller following its recent sellout successes with “The Foreigner” and “The Lady Killers”.
The embodiment of the American Dream, Joe Keller, a self-made successful businessman, is devoted to his family. His factory makes aircraft engine parts. The family is mourning their older son Larry, missing in action.
As the drama unfolds in August 1947 emotions of loss, cowardice, greed, deception and love are met in the raw.
Above all, does a lust for money outstrip any other motivation?
“Sure, he was my son. But I think to him they were all my sons. And I guess they were, I guess they were.”

This award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 30 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented small cast), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance! In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organisation called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a (nearly) death-defying finale! The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!

23-27 April 2019 @7:30

Road is the first play written by Jim Cartwright, and was first produced in 1986.
The play explores the lives of the people in a deprived, working class area of Lancashire during the government of Margaret Thatcher, a time of high unemployment in the north of England. Despite its explicit nature, it was considered extremely effective in portraying the desperation of people's lives at this time, as well as containing a great deal of humour. The play won a number of awards and was voted the 36th best play of the 20th century in a poll by the Royal National Theatre. Set on a road on a busy night, the audience delve into the houses on the street and the characters lives.

Step aboard the SS AMERICAN in the 1930s bound for England. Everyone is on board including Billy – who shouldn't be!

Unfortunately not as may celebrities are making the journey as usual – but Reno Sweeney, famed Evangelist turned nightclub singer is, with her four beautiful Angels. And the reason Billy stayed on board after dropping his boss off? Hope – the girl he met and fell in love with the other evening. Unfortunately for Billy, Hope's overbearing mother and her English fiancée Sir Evelyn Oakleigh are also on board.

How is Billy going to make Hope (and more to the point Hope's mother) see that he is the one she has to marry... and how is he going to so it without being caught as a stowaway? You may well ask... but it has something to do with two Chinese converts, the 13th most wanted man in America and a rice field!

‘Most of what she told me about herself is a cover story. She is a British Intelligence Officer. How far whould she go to get information out of me? The answer is, quite far.’
A young woman is found dead. Her sister sets out to find out what happened, and stumbles into a world of secrets and subterfuge that makes her question who Justine really was. How well can you ever know someone who lies for a living?
Ciphers is a smart and provocative thriller about spies and double agents.
‘an ingenious spy thriller... echoes of le Carré...’ The Guardian

UK
Cambridgeshire


Venue: Emmanuel College Chapel, Cambridge

Box Office: https://www.melerlor.com/tickets

Fri 26th & Sat 27th April 8:00pm

This exciting operatic double bill, jointly organised by the Cambridge University Baroque Ensemble and Emmanuel College Music Society will include the prologue from Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s Céphale et Procris, which has been little performed to date, coupled with Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Les arts florissants.

The opera will be fully staged and include dancers.

Our singers, who will receive coaching with French Baroque expert James Halliday, are joined by an experienced early music ensemble conducted from the harpsichord and violin.

The allegorical prologue to Céphale et Procris (for which we are making a new edition in the hope other companies will also discover this gem of French Baroque!) is a celebration of Louis XIV. Flore and Pan are joined by a choir of nymphs and other mythical sea creatures to sing the praises of the sun-king and present to him their games and concerts:

Continuing in an allegorical nature, Charpentier's Les arts florissants depicts the eponymous arts 'Music', 'Architecture', 'Poetry' and 'Painting' at the court of Louis XIV, protected by the 'Peace' which the king maintains through his valour. 'Discord', furious about this prosperity on earth leaves hell to upset this fine balance. 'Peace', with the help of Jupiter resist him and chases him back to hell.

The plot of Spamalot is almost exactly the same as the movie; King Arthur along with his squire, Patsy and a selection of knights go on an epic quest to find the Holy Grail, amongst them are Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot, and Sir Galahad. On their quest they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, a castle full of farting Frenchmen, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight, a killer rabbit and the Knights who say Ni.
Spamalot is jam packed with silly songs to match the action such as “I Am Not Dead Yet,” “The Song that Goes Like This,” and “The Diva’s Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part.” The show also includes the song originally made famous by Monty Python in The Life of Brian, “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” which is always a crowd pleaser!
Spamalot is an evening of all singing, all dancing silliness set in the time of King Arthur and Camelot. You can be sure it’ll be a ‘Knight’ to remember!!

Irene's daughters, Beth & Louise have conflicting views on how to manage their mother's memory issues - while Irene herself spends most of her time discussing how best to write her 'memory book' with her hallucinatory friend, the romantic novelist Barbara Cartland.
Pathos and comedy abound in this family drama with disclosures of long kept family secrets along the way. A drama about memory, secrets, loss and above all, love.
Gail Young has worked in community theatre for many years but began writing plays relatively recently, drawing on her own life's experience to produce many internationally performed plays.

As a sudden and mysterious storm whips the coast of England, a young woman sleepwalks along the edge of a cliff. In the teeth of the gale, a ship crashes through the harbour entrance, abandoned except for an immense dog and fifty boxes of grave dust. The Transylvanian Count Dracula has arrived in England. Immortal only as long as he is able to drink the blood of the living, he pursues his victims with brutally devastating effect. From the remote wilderness of Yorkshire to a vast ruined castle near to London whose windows omit no light, the race to end Dracula’s lustful power is underway, if only there is still time . . .

Backstage in a provincial English theatre, as WWII rages outside, one of the last of a dying breed of great classical actors is losing his way. It is up to his faithful dresser Norman, to prepare him for a performance of King Lear and prevent the show and its star from falling apart.
A snapshot of theatre culture from a bygone era; this wickedly funny and deeply moving play is also a touching study of mutually dependent relationships, loyalty and sacrifice.

Based loosely on Harwoods own experiences as a dresser, the play has been nominated for Olivier and Tony awards and an Academy Award for the screenplay of the film.

6th to 9th March 2019

Set during Christmas 1183 at Henry II of England’s castle in Chinon, France, the play opens with the arrival of Henry’s wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, whom he has imprisoned since 1173. The story concerns the gamesmanship between Henry, Eleanor and their three surviving sons Richard, Geoffrey and John and their Christmas court guest, King Philip II of France (the son of Eleanor’s ex-husband King Louis VII of France.) Also involved is Philip’s half sister Alais, who has been at the English court since she was betrothed to Richard at the age of 8, but has since become Henry’s mistress. The aim is to sort out a successor to the English throne – Henry favours John, Eleanor favours Richard and Geoffrey will play both sides against each other and come out on top (he hopes). Henry would also like to have another heir by his mistress Alais, but that would only add to the confusion.
A fast paced, witty piece of drama – ‘Dynasty’ for the Middle Ages.

The Crown Players and The Phoenix Players join forces to perform a brilliant night including two fantastic one act plays.

Kevin's Above A Drama by Alice M Underwood presented by The Phoenix Players

A Comedy by Claire Scott presented by The Crown Players
Directed by Shawn Reed
Suddenly and without warning, two men named Kevin find themselves dead and in the waiting room of Afterlife Relocation Services (Earth Division). The problem is only one of them should be dead, but no-one seems to know which one. And as if death wasn't hard enough, there's no way back and it seems no practical way forward either. Faced with a harassed afterlife supervisor and an incompetent office trainee, the two Kevins have to find their way through the bureaucratic nightmare of sudden death and find a way to live (or die) together.

Conkers
A Drama by Alice M Underwood presented by The Phoenix Players
Directed by Jackie Howard
Paradoxically, the setting is a spa, the purpose of which is to create an air of serenity and relaxation, but in this instance, proves the location for angst, anger and recrimination!
In early middle-age Mel deserted her marriage to a clergyman, abandoning their teenage daughter Rachel and her religion in a desperate bid to overcome loneliness, frustration and an increasing alcohol dependency.
Ruth, happily married and step-sister to Rachel, understood and forgave her mother's desertion and now hopes to arrange a spontaneous but surprise meeting between Mel and Rachel within the confines of a spa hoping that with their defences down, truth and mutual understanding may better be realised.
Now in her twenties and an aspiring actress, Rachel's astonishment and resentment at unavoidably meeting her incredulous mother in this contrived way dramatically unleashes years of pent-up grief and fury.
Addy, a Polish immigrant, works as masseuse and beautician in the spa earning money to send home for her small daughter whom she has left in the care of her mother in Poland.
In the intimacy of the spa the three women reflect upon their lives, and share long-held secrets and confidences. Motherhood, guilt, angst and fear; a potent mix for a relaxing day at the spa!
However, we have three intelligent women of varying ages and experience in this drama...
surely something can be salvaged from the fall-out... or can it?

Dave’s glamorous widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with a horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog. An unfamiliar woman in flamboyant mourning clothes turns out to be Kay, Dave’s ex-wife from before he was famous, and a series of revelations end with Kevin throwing a drink into the coffin and all the guests asking themselves if they ever knew the “real” Dave.

Venue: Oswaldtwistle Civic Theatre

Box Office: TicketSource
Tickets: £7.50


Friday 8th March 2019 7:30pm

Guaranteed a hilarious, emotive & thought provoking evening
A play of 2 very distinct halves, of 2 turbulent journeys. Bryan and the crew from the Working Men’s Club are back and there’s a new bout as the battle of the sexes continues with those women from next door. It’s all ‘argie-bargie’, for a while at least, until events take a turn and a period of reflection is forced upon everyone. It’s International Women’s Day and what better time to look back at a woman’s life – at women’s lives. We’re driving gender balance, will you join us on the journey?

In “Top Hat” we follow Jerry Travers as he arrives in London to appear in a stage show from producer Horace Hardwick.
But this being a screwball comedy things do not go according to plan and pretty soon a case of mistaken identity and romance sends things off course. Travers attempts to win the heart of Dale Tremond but she mistakes him for Hardwick – a married man – meaning that his advances horrify her as he attempts to gain her hand in marriage.

Building Bridges is a contemporay, comedy with an environmental theme. It's nerdy Clive's first time with The Ferrets - a group of environmental volunteers under the management of Trish.
Today they're building a boardwalk over some boggy ground. What will Clive make of officious Bob, strident Beryl and ASBO Mandy? And what's so special about Molly's culinary offerings?
Conservation volunteers are a friendly, benign lot, aren’t they? Maybe it’s not just the terrain that’s a bit mirky.

Manor Musical Theatre Company are proud to present their 2019 production, The Addams Family Musical!
A fully staged production featuring a 12-piece professional orchestra!
The Addams Family is a musical comedy based upon the ghoulish comic strip cartoon characters created by Charles Addams and popularised by US TV series and feature films, etc. This Addams Family musical was the first staged production featuring the iconic characters of Morticia, Gomez, Uncle Fester, Wednesday, Lurch, Pugsley, and Grandma. Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice with Andrew Lippa’s music and lyrics featuring 23 musical numbers, it was successfully launched on Broadway in 2010 followed by world-wide tours including the successful UK tour in 2017 starring Samantha Womack as Morticia.RThe story is set in the Addams family spooky mansion in Central Park, NY, surrounded by the graves of their ancestors (who ghoulishly appear from time to time). Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, want the family to secretly maintain their dark, macabre tradition, but 18-year-old daughter Wednesday has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family. Unadvisedly, she has invited the Beineke family to their home for dinner. Hilariously, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family traditions are threatened by change.

“Nice town, y’know what I mean?”
It’s only a few weeks now until Hagbourne Village Hall is lovingly transformed into Small-town New Hampshire, and we all drift back to life as it was in the early years of the last century. You won’t hear American accents but you WILL witness a homely tale of love, life and beyond in a community which, although distant in time and place, remains endearingly familiar.
It is 100 years since the famous three-act play Our Town was first presented in the United States. Its ground-breaking style and staging has kept it relevant and performed almost continuously in the USA ever since, and it remains a favourite of US drama societies, large and small.
In comparison, Our Town is seldom staged in the UK, so HAMS are particularly proud to present it as our 10th annual production, in association with Samuel French, London..
Age note: There is no age limit, but Our Town may not be fully appreciated by young children.
