OLIVER!

Author: Music, lyrics and book by Lionel Bart

OLIVER!



3rd - 7th July 2018 7:00pm
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.

UK
Kent


Venue: Playhouse Theatre, Whitstable

Box Office: TicketSource
Tickets £12


3rd-7th July 2018 7:45pm


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.

Made in Dagenham The Musical

Made in Dagenham The Musical

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.

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

Author: by Martin McDonagh
Directed by Chrissie Garrett

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.

Mustard Theatre Company's production of the hit West End and Broadway comedy, by Richard Bean. Set in Brighton in the 1960s. 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.

He has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for the weekend but when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn to danger.
It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears.
Murder, comedy and farce rolled into one with a touch of Sherlock Holmes on the side.

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.

By popular demand GADS present their second Murder Mystery evening.
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.

The play is about their lives and close friendship over the next thirty years.

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.

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!

Fantastic Mister Fox!

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".

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.

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!

Witches and Queens. The trousers of time. Elves and...iron.
New young upstart witch Diamanda and her small (but adequate for purposes) coven (Amanita and Perdita) are knowingly doing things they shouldn’t up at ancient Standing Stones known as ‘The Dancers’. These Stones are a magical doorway for The Elves, who, being glamorous and eager for power, come when called, and Diamanda is stupid enough to call them, lured by Elf power and...Glamour.
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!
Will Magrat become the Queen she always wanted to be or will the Queen of the Elves defeat them all and defy centuries of folklore, folk songs and storytelling happy endings? Come and join us for a funny, family fuelled Midsummer’s Evening of magical Sir Terry Pratchett (May-he-rest-in-peace) penned entertainment - and find out!
The Young Theatre joins Beaconsfield Theatre Group in this great play, to be performed in the open air at Davenies School

Thurs 26th - Sat 28th July 2018 7:15pm


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!

All is fine until the two family meet for a fateful dinner. Will Gomez manage to keep his promise to Wednesday?

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…

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.

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.

Assassins

Author: Music and Lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM
Book by JOHN WEIDMAN
ASSASSINS is based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.
Playwrights Horizons, Inc. - New York City Produced ASSASSINS Off-Broadway in 1990
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.

CATS

Author: Andrew Lloyd Weber

CATS

“Are you mean like a minx? Are you lean like a lynx? Are you keen to be seen when you’re smelling a rat? Were you there when the pharaohs commissioned the Sphinx? If you were and you are you’re a Jellicle Cat”
CATS is one of the most iconic and loved musicals of all time. Since taking the West End and Broadway by storm in 1981 the songs of the Jellicles, based on the poems of TS Eliot, have delighted and entranced theatre lovers young and old around the world. Now the award-winning Festival Players bring the full CATS experience to Cambridge for the very first time with a new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s feline musical masterpiece.
Discover, or re-discover, the tails(!) of the most charismatic cats ever to assemble under the Jellicle Moon. Macavity, Mr Mistoffelles, The Rum Tum Tugger, Grizabella, Skimbleshanks and many others share their stories, their friendships and their conflicts and reveal just a tiny glimpse into the secret world of Jellicle Cats.

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.

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.

Oh What A Lovely War may sit under the banner of ‘musical entertainment’ but it is so much more than that. This now iconic show delivers humour and heartache in equal measure, sweeping audiences on an emotional roller-coaster through four years in history while compelling us to reflect on the huge sacrifices made during the First World War from the perspective of the ordinary soldier.

Will he accept the challenge? Will he ever be able to learn the lines? or will he head for the nearest airport back to LA?

Funnier than the black death! Spamalot arrives at the KMT for the very first time.

Join King Arthur as he travels with his hapless Knights of the Round Table on a divine mission to locate the illusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences.
This hilarious show is written by Python legend Eric Idle, who has been entertaining the British public for over 50 years. With comic tunes including ‘Brave Sir Robin’, ‘We’re Knights of the Round Table’ and perennial favourite ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’, Spamalot audiences are sure to be dancing in the aisles. Don’t be a knight who says ‘No’ ….

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.”

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!

Trevor and Susannah, whose marriage is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest; three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. Taking place in the three beleaguered couples' bedrooms during one Saturday night, we witness beds, tempers and domestic order being ruffled, leading everyone to a hilariously touching epiphany.

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

Nell Gwynn

Author: Jessica Swale

Nell Gwynn

London, 1660. King Charles II has exploded onto the scene with a love of all things loud, extravagant and sexy. And at Drury Lane, a young Nell Gwynn is causing stirrings amongst the theatregoers.
Nell Gwynn charts the rise of an unlikely heroine, from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to her success as Britain's most celebrated actress, and her hard-won place in the heart of the King. But at a time when women are second-class citizens, can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the Court?
Jessica Swale's exhilarating take on the heady world of Restoration theatre premiered at Shakespeare's Globe, London, in September 2015, before transferring to the West End in February 2016, starring Gemma Arterton. It won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2016 and completed a UK Tour in Spring 2017.

Inspector Drake and the Perfekt Crime

When a genius commits a murder, the plan is perfect. But is it foolproof?
The legendary Inspector Drake is back to face his greatest ever challenge, as he attempts to unravel a plot with more twists in it than, well, a really twisty thing. Who is the mysterious Doctor Short, and why did he marry a warthog? Has he murdered his fourth wife - or did she murder him first? Has he really got two daughters called Sabrina, or is one of them telling porkies? Where is Frank the taxi driver? What was the Pope doing in the woods? And, perhaps most importantly of all, why is there a lamppost in the living room?
These are just some of the questions facing the world's most famous dick, as he gropes for the answer to the perfect crime, groping some of the suspects along the way.
Directed by the team behind 2017's hugely successful "Blackadder's Christmas Carol"

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear.

Welcome to the sleepy market town of Mendisham, with its two churches, two pubs, two schools and now – two funeral directors. Positioned directly opposite one another across the High Street, the long established firm of Frobisher’s does not take kindly to the brash newcomers. When an important member of the community dies, both establishments are determined to handle the funeral. As neither trusts the other to play fair, their rivalry leads to attempted spying which descends into total confusion and great hilarity.

With more widows than you can shake an Arum Lily at, both establishments set out to fight for the death (but watch out for Rambo - he can get over-excited!).

16th to 19th of May 2018 (7:30pm start)


For the first time in its 51 year history, Aldridge Musical Comedy Society (AMCS) is proud to present West Side Story at the Prince of Wales theatre in Cannock. A hallmark show for any society, the stunning contemporary adaptation of Romeo and Juliet is a rollercoaster event that will surely have you on the edge of your seats.
In one of the largest casts ever to grace an AMCS production, over 30 Jets, Sharks and Adults take to the stage for a show filled with jovial musical comradery to contrast with the heartbreaking underlying story and it's tragic conclusion.
In an almost impossibly challenging double header, Sarah Beckett takes on both Director and Choreographer roles in West Side Story along with a few cameos on the stage itself; “West Side Story has been my favourite show since I was young and I am so proud of everyone in the production who has bought my ideas to life.” Sarah says about her undertaking. “It has been one of the most challenging shows I have done, but also one of the most enjoyable.”
Musical Direction is taken on by AMCS staple Mark Bayliss in his first undertaking of the Leonard Bernstein score; “West Side Story is one of the most challenging musicals in the history of musical theatre, and certainly my biggest yet” Mark admits. “The show is musically genius from the get go with little hidden melodies within the score from start to finish to symbolise the two main types of music featured in the show.”
AMCS currently has a core of over thirty members and is always on the lookout for new recruits of all ages. The society rehearses in Aldridge every Wednesday, and in addition to two shows a year, also stages concerts for charities and other good causes.
Not to be put off by performing a show on the scale of West Side Story, AMCS is already planning its next 2 productions with Sleeping Beauty the Pantomime planned for November 2018. The following May AMCS will grace the stage with Me and My Girl (2019) for the third time in their history.

A murder mystery farce set in Squire Grange where all is dull and peaceful ...
Lady Amelia (Wendy Croft) searches for new ideas for her latest mystery novel as Sir Malcolm (Paul Lockwood) sleeps off the excesses of another idle day. Family friend Freddy (Gareth Atkinson) is persuaded to try and think of new ideas.
Meanwhile the hapless Vic Tim (Sam Smethurst) arrives and is promptly dispatched by an unknown assailant. Everyone tries hard to discover the murderer before he or she can strike again. The first problem, however, is how to get rid of Vic's body, not just because he is making an untidy mess on the stage, but also because he has to come back in ACT II as a policeman!
Smalls (Nick Gulvin), the butler, and Mabel (Caroline Blair), the maid, try to assist the inept police led by DI Sides (Rosie Wilson), and Sir Malcolm attempts to give the delicious WPC Eve Nunnall (Maeve Adair) a hand, but it's not in time to prevent the Producer being murdered. There is even a suspicion that someone may have poisoned the audience. Eventually Miss Marbles (Tina Seeley) arrives to reveal, Agatha Christie-style, the culprit.
This is a murder mystery - but not as we know it - which steadfastly refuses to take itself (or anything else) seriously.

The programme for the spring show includes Gilbert and Sullivan’s one act comic opera Trial by Jury and compositions from British favourites such as Ethel Smyth, Benjamin Britten and Henry Purcell.
Eleanor Graff-Baker, conductor of the Choir, said:
“Following the 'musical world tour' at Christmas, the Loughborough University Choir is staying firmly rooted in England for this concert.
“The performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's 'Trial by Jury' will see the Choir in court, as they sit on the jury or speculate from the press gallery.
“Will dastardly Edwin be fairly tried or will slighted Angelina see justice? Will the bewigged, if not bothered or bewildered, Judge bring all his experience to bear on this "nice dilemma"?
“Or will you, the audience, get to decide in this unique version of a very English favourite?”
For those who want to do more than listen, Loughborough University Choir is open to all University staff and students plus members of the public aged 16 and over.
New members are welcome to join for free at any time – no auditions or previous experience is required. The Choir meets every Monday during term time to rehearse.
You can email luarts@lboro.ac.uk for more information on joining.

Wednesday 16th May at 7.30pm



Box Office: Tickets are £7.00 or £5.00 for students and can be bought online (arts.lboro.ac.uk) or from the LU Arts Box Office at Loughborough Town Hall on 01509-231914.

As You Like It

Author: By William Shakespeare

As You Like It

Comic twists and turns abound in the fertile Forest of Arden. Rosalind and Celia, best friends and cousins, escape from the violent and repressive kingdom of Duke Frederick in search of a better life in the Forest of Arden. There they find love and freedom to be who they want to be. But Arden cannot solve all their problems. Love is never simple, idealism is sometimes naive, and the border of the forest cannot keep the world out forever.
A firm favourite among Shakespeare’s comedies, it runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion.

17th, 18th and 19th May 2018 at 7.30pm


A cabaret evening of original plays, verses and songs to celebrate the centenary of women getting the vote (some of them, anyway!).
Many plays were written by suffrage campaigners and their supporters to highlight the arguments for and against giving women the vote. They were performed at rallies and other public meetings, primarily to entertain and encourage those who already supported the cause. Most were not written by professional playwrights and they are not necessarily literary masterpieces. Their power lies in their subject matter, not in the quality of the writing.
The Monday Players decided that the centenary of (some) women getting the vote in February 1918 was a historic moment well worth commemorating and celebrating in its own right. But women’s suffrage campaigners wanted the vote, not just as a matter of principle, but because of the ability it would give women to put pressure on politicians to address other issues where women were badly treated. These included double standards in sexual matters and unequal pay. Recent stories of the abuse of women by men in positions of power over them, and of the persistence of unequal pay, demonstrate the continuing relevance of the battle that reached a milestone, but not a conclusion, one hundred years ago...

SINGLE SPIES

Dorset


Venue: Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne

Box Office: Tel: 01202 885566
Tickets £12.50 evenings, £10.50 Saturday matinee


17th - 19th May 2018


Alan Bennett’s award-winning comedy double-bill, An Englishman Abroad and A Question of Attribution, explores our fascination with Russian spies and the Royal Family, depicting the lives of two members of the notorious ‘Cambridge Five’ spy ring – Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt – who operated at the heart of the British Establishment in the 1940s and 1950s.
Spanning the globe from Moscow to London, Single Spies gives a glimpse into lives lived under cover of forgery and fraud, exile and espionage, and paints a portrait of what it might be like to be interrogated by Her Majesty The Queen.
An Englishman Abroad is the true story of actress Coral Browne’s chance encounter with Guy Burgess, exiled in Moscow and missing England. Invited to dine at his flat, she receives just one simple instruction – “bring a tape measure”.
A Question of Attribution follows Anthony Blunt, esteemed art historian and Surveyor of The Queen’s Pictures, as he tries to solve the riddle of an enigmatic painting, while himself being the subject of investigation by MI5. An accidental audience with The Queen induces a sharp and dangerous exchange of wits.
Alan Bennett’s classic comedy masterpieces are being staged by Wimborne Drama Productions by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD., and are directed by Sam Moulton.

An unfortunate over-booking of the Church Hall results in a gathering of a wonderful mix of local characters, ranging from Evonne (the nervous Vicar's wife), to Leonard (a man intent on delivering a talk on steam locomotives to anyone wanting to listen!!). Eventually they all unite to produce a pantomime but, as rehearsals proceed, alliances are forged and switched as the opening night looms. Events culminate backstage after the final performance.

On 11th April 1955, Ruth Ellis shot and murdered her lover, David Blakely, outside a Hampstead pub. Ellis was found guilty and became the last woman to be hanged in Britain.
@2K Theatre are excited to offer this wonderful and popular play that explores the private lives of Ruth and her companion hostesses who work in the seedy world of nightclubs that offer more than a drink in the upstairs rooms, but dream of a movie star existence. Why was Ruth she so keen to admit her guilt and why did she offer no mitigation for her actions?

“Every theatre has got ghosts. Well this one has got more than most.”
As the Citizens closes its door for the next two years for a major redevelopment, the Gorbals Ghosts have got the place to themselves. So it’s time for a bit of 1918 style entertainment! But another kind of memory gets awakened by the songs and stories of a hundred years ago.
The story of Glasgow in the First World War is also the personal story of the Donaldson family and what became of them in the trenches of Flanders and back home in the streets and pubs and munitions factories of the Second City of the Empire.
Drawing on texts of the time from casualty lists to advertisements, with songs, jokes and a bit of mind reading, join a company drawn from the Gorbals and across Glasgow (and a few ghostly presences) for A Night to Remember, where telling the truth about the past is a matter of life and death.
Part of the Southside Fringe programme.

On their shared 25th wedding anniversary three couples, now local dignitaries, get together for a cosy celebration. Suddenly, their self-satisfied existence is punctured by a scandalous revelation that threatens everything they think they know.
Relationships, marriages and allegiances are all suddenly called into question as the power shifts beneath their feet.
JB Priestley is known for satirising middle-class pomposity, and is rightly considered one of our finest writers. This play features a host of characters who are a long way from being on their best behaviour, using the finest comedy to entertain us while parodying god-fearing (and gossip-fearing) folk.

Eve and Leslie arrive at a timeshare villa in Portugal. But Eve has told her husband Sid, who is back in England, that she is staying in a Portuguese convent for the week.
Henry and Mary then arrive and it transpires that the villa has been double booked.
Both couples initially believe the others to be locals Maria & Pedro, the villa servants, and try to converse with each other in Portuguese …. albeit none of them can speak the language.
When they finally realise they are all English, Harry discovers Leslie & Eve are having a fling.
He tries to kick them out so that he and Mary can enjoy the villa alone.
He nearly succeeds … but then his Mother-in-Law, Celia, just drops in ….. and she is not Mary’s mother ?
Henry & Mary are also having a dirty week away and to cover his tracks Henry introduces Leslie as his old school friend, saying they’re playing golf for the week, and his girlfriend Mary as the maid.
Chaos follows and things get even more confusing when Pinky, who is the old school friend, actually turns up and has to be introduced as Pedro, Maria’s cum Mary’s boyfriend.

James and the Giant Peach

UK
Bucks


Venue: The Curzon Centre, Beaconsfield

Box Office: TicketSoource

Sat 26th May 3:00pm & 5:30pm


The story of Roald Dahl’s classic tale is faithfully told by James himself and the insect characters – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird, and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York.
A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York. The insects play the other roles, like James’s cruel Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, and the epic journey across the Atlantic is acted out with live action, puppetry and storytelling in David Wood's masterful adaptation.
“… a great introduction for first-timers to the work of the masterful Dahl … a theatrical treat for children and adults alike.“ Belfast Newsletter?

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.

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

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…

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.

3-7 April 2018


Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show.
While spying on their wives at a "Girls' Night Out," Jerry and Dave, two steelworkers from Buffalo, New York, come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they're stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to "let it go."
The Full Monty is a story full of heart. With a raucous mix of razor-sharp humor and toe-tapping pizzazz, this heartwarming, upbeat comedy is a must for everyone.
THIS SHOW CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND SOME NUDITY

Macbeth

Author: by William Shakespeare
directed by Bethan Tanner

Macbeth

For this production we are going to do things a little different: the part of Macbeth will be gender swapped. This will alter the dynamic between the core murderous couple: turning the idea of “behind every man…” diatribe on its head with the ‘woman in the relationship’ acting as both the brains and the brawn.
We will also set this play in corporate1980’s, the heyday of excess, ambition ad greed. The time of Grace Jones, Margaret Thatcher and other powerful women on the rise. This production will see the protagonist fight for the control of her company, rather than the crown of Scotland, and kill off boorish men in the process. The themes of this show, while iconic for the new setting, resonate within our current culture of female empowerment and gender and sexual equality.
So, imagine Dynasty, but with murder and lesbianism…

Blackadder Goes Forth

Blackadder Goes Forth

It's 1917, and deep inside the Allied trenches, Captain Edmund Blackadder is an intelligent, self-centered officer whose aim is to survive until the war is over. He is assisted by the eager but stupid Lt. George Colthurst and the moronic, grungy Private Baldrick. Blackadder's commander is the insane General Melchett, who is assisted by Blackadder's rival Captain Darling...and Edmund will stop at nothing to avoid going 'over the top'.
We present four episodes from the hit BBC sitcom:
'Captain Cook' - Blackadder learns of a secret mission in search of a talented artist within the Trenches;
'Corporal Punishment' - Edmund is put on court martial for the 'murder' of General Melchett's beloved pigeon 'Speckled Jim';
'Major Star' - when the Russians pull out of the war, the way to increase morale is a music hall type concert for the men, but George finds himself in a sticky situation;
'Goodbyeee' - the day arrives when the men are ordered to advance into No Man's Land, but can Blackadder make one last ditch attempt to avoid the inevitable push?

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU

Author: by MOSS HART and GEORGE S. KAUFMAN

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU

“How many of us would be willing to settle when we're young for what we eventually get? All those plans we make...what happens to them? It's only a handful of the lucky ones that can look back and say that they even came close.”
Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman's biting comedy celebrates non-conformity and has been delighting audiences since 1936.
You Can't Take it With You introduces audiences to the freethinking Sycamore family and the mayhem that ensues when their daughter's fiancé brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to dinner on the wrong night.
The play won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was adapted for the screen, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director. The show was revived on Broadway in 2014 starring James Earl Jones and Rose Byrne.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Author: Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest



11th - 14th April 2018
The Importance of Being Earnest is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives.

They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure.

The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved, and indeed bizarre, characters to be found on the modern stage.

Taken from real experiences of First World War veterans, “A More Perfect World”, by Tony Green, takes place in three different time zones - 2018, 1978 and during the years of the war. It is actually three plays in one – three characters with three distinct stories and experiences.
In 1978 three people are drawn together to be interviewed for a documentary on the realities of their experiences during the conflict. A soldier, an officer, and a nursing volunteer all discuss their memories and the events they witnessed. Together they use the platform to push against the culture that is telling them how to feel about their experiences…a culture that is in the process of building the myth around them.
40 years later, their recollections are finally to be broadcast – the myth now written.
This play is not suitable for under 12s.

Saturday matinee 2.30 p.m.
Gangsters, gamblers, showgirls and missionaries are all coming to Chelmsford this Spring. That’s right, it’s Guys and Dolls – the musical comedy based on stories by Damon Runyon, which will see Essex Police Musical Society’s cast gambling with luck and love under the bright lights of New York City.
Set in Depression-era Manhattan, Guys and Dolls follows loveable gambler Nathan Detroit as he tries to find a new location for his floating dice game, whilst trying to appease his fiancée of 14 years, Miss Adelaide, who wants nothing more than a happy marriage and a white picket fence. In a desperate bid to fund his game, Nathan bets the coolest high roller in town, Sky Masterson, that he can’t get a date with Sergeant Sarah Brown of the ‘Save a Soul’ mission, who is more interested in redeeming the sinners of New York. Will Sky manage to win her over? And will Nathan manage to keep one short step ahead of the law long enough to make an honest woman out of Adelaide?
With a fantastic musical score that includes songs such as ‘Luck be a Lady’, ‘A Bushel and a Peck’ and ‘Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat’, this high-spirited story of unlikely couples will have you laughing and tapping your toes the whole way through.

Author: Oscar Wilde

A Woman of No Importance

Oscar Wilde's classic drama A Woman of No Importance is coming to King Alfred Phoenix Theatre in Golders Green, from 12-14 April.
A house party is in full swing at Lady Hunstanton's stately country home. One of the guests is Gerald Arbuthnot, an earnest, upright young man whose prospects are limited, so he is overjoyed when the suave Lord Illingworth offers him employment as his secretary. His mother, however, implores him to refuse this brilliant entrée into sophisticated society.
Should she reveal the shameful secret that she has kept hidden for twenty years and possibly destroy her beloved son's happiness forever? How can she tell Gerald that, contrary to appearances, Lord Illingworth is a 'man of no importance'?

In this powerful and moving play Stephanie Abrahams (Ciara O'Sullivan), a brilliant concert violinist who has it all, is forced to re-evaluate her life when struck down by an unforeseen tragedy. Faced with a truth too difficult to comprehend she consults psychiatrist Dr Feldmann (Kevin Walshe) and through a series of highly charged encounters is led to examine her deepest emotions and finally to consider a future without music.
Through the course of their encounters in his consulting room, Dr Feldmann delicately probes away at Stephanie's brittle coating of resilience, to expose the truth about her background, her marriage and her self-esteem.
The play is blessed with wit, insight and a refusal to wallow in misfortune. This is a beautiful piece of drama, directed by Donal Bray.

Catherine has inherited her late father’s mathematical brilliance, but she is haunted by the fear that she might also share his debilitating mental illness. She has spent years caring for her now-deceased father, and upon his death, she feels left alone to pick up the pieces of her life without him. Caught between a new-found connection with Hal, one of her father’s former students, and the reappearance of her sister, Claire, Catherine finds both her world and her mind growing increasingly unstable. Then Hal discovers a groundbreaking proof among the 103 notebooks Catherine’s father left behind, and Catherine is forced to further question how much of her father’s genius or madness will she inherit. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, David Auburn’s Proof is a passionate, intelligent story about fathers and daughters, the nature of genius, and the power of love.

A summer evening's barbecue is the setting for a meeting of the Trealaw and District Operatic Society. Next season's play is to be announced but Nick, the society's business manager, has promised a different show and the plum roles to four different people. As the evening progresses each character's foibles and talents are revealed: Joyce, once talented and well meaning, is a lush; Teddy is alternately sweet and strident; Derek is pathetic but lovable. The complex relationships between players emerge as moments of pure slapstick and farce alternate with ones full of real drama and pathos. Not every hitch is resolved, but at the end of this exploration, by turns ironic and serious, of the joys and heartaches of amateur theatrics, the society is intact and its members ready for another season of testing the magic and artifice that is theatre.

Play On



21st April - 28th April
This is the hilarious story of a Theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. When the authoress decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects should reap their share of laughter. **Please note that we have a no refund policy on our tickets**

Agatha Crusty & The Village Hall Murders

Nothing very much happens in Chortlebury. Well, not until recently, that is. Somebody has now started killing off members of the Village Hall Committee. The detective responsible for sorting all this out is not exactly ‘ the sharpest tool in the box’ and it is left to amateur sleuth Agatha to solve the crime. There’s a water butt involved and, somehow, the Vikings seem to have got involved as well!
You might be able to sort out who did what far more swiftly than the incompetent detective. You might even be quicker than our Agatha. Come and have a go.

One of the greatest American musicals, Gypsy has appeared on Broadway no less than 5 times and the recent West End revival of Gypsy marked the first showing of the widely celebrated musical in London in over 40 years!
The musical is famous for helping to launch the career of lyricist Stephen Sondheim, who went on to write complete musical scores of his own. Arthur Laurents wrote the book of the musical, and it is widely considered to be one of the classic examples of a traditional ‘book musical’ which became popular during the middle of the 20th Century.
The show is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, and focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with "the ultimate show business mother." The musical contains many songs that became popular standards, including "Everything's Coming up Roses", "Together (Wherever We Go)", "Small World", "You Gotta Get a Gimmick", "Let Me Entertain You", "All I Need Is the Girl", and "Rose's Turn".

Knowledge and a Girl



Tues 24 - Sat 28 April 2018 @7:30
Howard Barker twists Grimm's Little Snow White into a spiky fable. 'I sleep with seven men,' she says.
There are no innocent maidens or wicked stepmothers here, only women seeking enlightenment through erotic transgression. Barker delves into the intricacies of sexual maturity, explodes contemporary obsessions with youthfulness, and exposes how women are punished for a visible sexuality. But there's no social realism here - this is a truly Grimm world of mirrors, where the Queen's punishment is taken to the fairy tale extreme, where the cost of desire and its knowledge is paid in blood.

Dangerous Corner is one of J B Priestley’s three time plays. Robert and Freda Caplan are entertaining guests at their country house. After dinner there is a chance remark by one of the guests about a musical cigarette box and a discussion about whether one should always be honest and tell the truth. This ignites a series of devastating revelations, bringing to light a hitherto undiscovered tangle of clandestine relationships and dark secrets, the disclosure of which has tragic consequences. Is it better to “let sleeping dogs lie” and avoid the “dangerous corner”?

Very much in the genre of Les Miserables, ‘Quasimodo’ tugs at the heart strings with its passion and haunting music.

A Bunch of Amateurs

Author: Ian Hislop and Nick Chapman

A Bunch of Amateurs

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele is drawn to England to play the title role in King Lear in what he believes will be a prestigious production in Stratford-upon-Avon. Alarmingly for Steele he finds that he has been tricked by his agent, and is in fact starring with an amateur dramatic company in the tiny Suffolk village of Stratford St John.
Steele’s horror only increases when it becomes blindingly obvious that there’s no Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench and his fellow cast are in fact a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic amdram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Steele’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!
“Terrific comedy packed with killer comic dialogue… plenty of twists and turns” ~ Whatsonstage
“Deliciously stuffed with Shakespeare…a laugh-a-minute” ~ Mail on Sunday
Ian Hislop is a British journalist, comedian, writer, broadcaster and editor of the magazine Private Eye. He has appeared on countless radio and television programmes, and is perhaps best known as team captain on the BBC’s comedy quiz show Have I Got News for You.
Nick Newman is best known for his work as a satirical cartoonist, working regularly for Private Eye since 1981, and as pocket cartoonist for The Sunday Times since 1989. His cartoons and strips have appeared in many other publications including Punch and The Spectator.
As writers, Ian and Nick have collaborated for over 30 years, with co-writing credits including Spitting Image, Murder Most Horrid for Dawn French, two series of My Dad’s the Prime Minister for BBC1, sketches for The Harry Enfield Show and the BBC Radio 4 series Gush.

The Producers

Author: by Mel Brooks

The Producers

Laugh along with this irreverent, sometimes raunchy comedy about two theatrical producers who scheme to get rich with a Broadway flop, but end up with an unexpected hit!
Newtown Musical Theatre Company is delighted to present Mel Brooks’ award-winning smash hit ‘The Producers.’
In 1959, Broadway’s worst producer Max Bialystock schemes with neurotic accountant Leo Bloom to make millions by putting on a play that is guaranteed to flop.
Written by a not-so secret fan of the Third Reich, staged by the most over-the-top director in history, and financed by a gaggle of raunchy little old ladies, Bialystock and Bloom’s ‘Springtime for Hitler’ seems sure “to close on page four”—what could possibly go right?
With some adult humour, this zany, hilarious musical farce will bring tears (of laughter) to your eyes as it pokes fun at just about everything and everyone!

Patience

Patience

Author: by Gilbert & Sullivan

It’s 14 years since our last G&S and 43 years since we staged Patience!
Patience is lighthearted, witty, laugh out loud funny in places and the music is tuneful and catchy:
All of the maidens in the village are besotted with Reginald Bunthorne, a moody and handsome poet, but he has eyes only for the simple milkmaid, Patience. The problem? Bunthorne’s artistic ways are all just an actto attract women to him--he doesn’t even like poetry! Besides, Patience is in love with her childhood sweetheart, who happens to be a real poet named Archibald Grosvenor, but feels she cannot marry him because he is just too perfect.
In the meantime the serious (and decidedly non-poetic) platoon of Heavy Dragoon Guards that were meant to marry the village maidens find themselves dismayed and perplexed by their sudden loss of prospects, in a story of love, superficiality and vanity come along and see us perform one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most successful shows and find out just who will be Bunthorne's Bride?

The Fifteen Streets

Author: by Rob Bettinson
Adapted from the novel by Catherine Cookson
Directed by Wendi Sheard

The Fifteen Streets

Set in 1910, this is the simple yet evocative story of one family's fight for physical and moral survival in the poverty and squalor of the dockland slums of Tyneside. At the centre of the tale of tragedy, humour, intrigue and love, is the apparently impossible love affair between rugged docker John O'Brien and Mary Llewellyn, a schoolteacher.

THE RETURN OF INSPECTOR PRATT

Author: Peter Gordon

Following last year’s success with ‘Secondary Cause of Death’, the Latimer Players are pleased to announce that Inspector Pratt will return in April to solve more murders in ‘Murdered to Death’ written by Peter Gordon. In this production you will meet some of the same characters again, along with numerous others for the hapless inspector to interrogate in his clumsy fashion. The Latimer Players first performed this play in 1998 and two members of the original cast will perform those same parts again, older and wiser!
This hilarious spoof is set in a country manor house with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight - Bunting the Butler, an English Colonel, a shady French art dealer and his moll, the bumbling inspector and a well-meaning sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes. They are all caught up in the mysterious death of the house’s owner, but it soon appears that the murderer does not stop at one murder.
Will the murderer be unmasked before everyone meets their doom, or do the audience die laughing first?
There will be café style seating and you are invited to bring your own drinks and nibbles.
Every effort will be made to seat parties together on tables of 4,6,8 or 10 people.
