Top Hat

Top Hat



Tuesday 31st October to Saturday 4th November, with performances starting at 7:30pm each night, and an additional matinee performance at 2:30pm on Saturday 4th November.
Top Hat brings the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age and the glorious, tap-dancing magic of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to the stage in one of the greatest dance musicals of all time. Packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits – including “Cheek to Cheek”, “Top Hat, White Tie and Tails”, “Let’s Face the Music and Dance” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz” – Top Hat tells the story of Broadway sensation Jerry Travers who dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society girl Dale Tremont.
An uplifting and hilarious romantic comedy celebrating 1930s song, style and romance, Top Hat dazzles with beautiful costumes, breath-taking dance and captivating comedy.
Geoids’ production of Top Hat will be London’s amateur premiere of this show and will transform the Bridewell Theatre into an Art Deco wonderland worthy of this joyful score.

Classic Jacobean revenge tragedy mixing sex and death with wicked humour.
Beautiful and rich, Beatrice-Joanna is in love, so she hires her father’s trusted manservant, the repellent De Flores, to kill her current fiancé. But Beatrice discovers that, in return, De Flores wants something far more precious than money.
Meanwhile, two chancers feign madness in order to gain admittance to the local madhouse, to test the virtue of the jealous owner’s wife, who proves more than capable of turning the tables on them both.
Directed By Shirley Wootten and Hannah Lester

Talking Heads

Author: Alan Bennett

Talking Heads



Wednesday 1st to Saturday 4th November 7:30pm
Following the success of ‘The Lady in the Van’, we will be staging three of Alan Bennett’s ‘Talking Heads’ this autumn.
Of the six that are available for stage performance, we will be presenting three. Three very different characters living or reliving their memories and experiences as each remembers them.
In the first, 'A cream cracker under the settee', we see an elderly lady, aware of causing her own situation but perhaps unaware that it derives from both her obsessive nature and determination.
The second, 'Her big chance', features Lesley, a young aspiring actress who believes she has much to offer, both as a person and especially as an actress with 'stardom' in her sites.
'Lady of letters', the third story concerns Miss Ruddock who writes copious letters. She regards herself as public spirited in the comments she makes.This appears to be her downfall but is it?

Invincible

Author: by Torben Betts
Director Mark Scanlon

Invincible



Friday 31st October to Saturday 4th November 7.45pm.
It’s 2012; Emily and Oliver are finding the costs of living in the capital too much to bear so decide to downsize and downshift their middle class life to a small town in the north of England.
To try and break the ice and integrate themselves with their new surroundings, Emily and Oliver invite their neighbours, bimbo-esque Dawn and footie fanatic Alan, round for ‘drinks and nibbles.’
During a catastrophic evening of olives, cashews and bad cat paintings (amongst other things), class and culture collide in a mix of tragic and hilarious consequences.
Think Alan Ayckbourn combined with John Godber with a bit of Mike Leigh thrown in and you’re in the right area.
Invincible is a powerful yet very funny modern drama that won widespread high critical acclaim both during its London run in 2014 and when it toured nationally in 2016 and earlier this year.

“A spiky comedy of culture clash and embarrassment” - London Evening Standard

“A keenly perceptive play for today” - The Independent

Breaking the Code

Author: by Hugh Whitemore

Breaking the Code



2nd, 3rd and 4th November 2017
Alan Turing - genius, mathematician and father of the modern computer - broke both the German Enigma code during the Second World War and the sexual code of post War England.
Hugh Whitemore's fascinating play weaves the story of Turing's triumph together with that of his later humiliation. "Breaking the Code" is thought provoking and tragic, yet told with flashes of humour.

Anna Karenina

Author: by Leo Tolstoy, adapted by Helen Edmundson

Anna Karenina



Tuesday 7th - Saturday 11th November 7.45pm
“I’ve always loved you and when you love someone, you love the whole person, just as he or she is, and not as you would like them to be.” Through the impact of one woman’s decision, Helen Edmundson’s celebrated and ‘exemplary adaptation’ (The Times) of Anna Karenina looks at the cost of love on the human soul. Anna is enchanting and admired but empty – until a chance encounter throws her into emotional turmoil and a scandalous affair. Contrasting with this tale of destructive love is the story of Levin, an idealistic man striving to finding meaning in life. This fast paced and stylish production is sure to intrigue both those new to Tolstoy’s seminal novel and fan’s of one of the greatest works of fiction.
Presented by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books Ltd

Out of Focus

Author: Peter Gordon



Wed 8th November to Sat 11th November 7.30pm
Cleverly crafted and stunningly funny, Out of Focus is set in the annexe of church hall, where a series of over-bookings have occurred. A wonderful mix of characters from the local community descend on the church hall for a Brownie troop meeting, a badminton game, table tennis, auditions for the Vicar’s wife’s new pantomime and an illustrated talk on steam locomotives, each claiming their rightful place. Confusion reigns until everyone finally unites for a common cause: the production of the pantomime.
Over the following weeks of rehearsals, alliances are formed and switched as the cast battle against the odds and the opening night nears. Events finally culminate backstage after the final performance at the cast party, when everyone receives their just deserts.

Season's Greetings



8th November to 11th November 2017 at 7:30pm
Christmas is coming early to Banbury in the shape of Alan Ayckbourn's Season's Greetings. This black, often farcical, comedy is the opener to Banbury Cross Players’ 2017/2018 Season and follows a dysfunctional family over a period of four days at Christmas. Hilarious highlights include a drunken game of snakes and ladders, a chaotically incompetent puppet show and a midnight love scene!

Director Trish Thompson, looks back with fondness at her previous productions with BCP. “I realise they have all been comedies and two were by Alan Ayckbourn. This says a lot about me. I love to hear the audience’s vocal response. That first laugh is very special - it's the audience’s seal of approval."

As well as familiar and returning faces in the cast, BCP are delighted to welcome Simon Grey to his first production with BCP in the role of Eddie.
This is an ideal opportunity for you to try out the plush new seating at The Mill Arts Centre if you’ve not visited the theatre since their installation in September this year.
Christmas Jumpers welcome!
Do come along early to make sure you don't miss our new 7.30pm start time!

The Shaughraun

Author: by Dion Boucicault

The Shaughraun



November: Thurs 9, Fri 10, Sat 11 and Thurs 16, Sat 18 and Thurs 23 and Fri 24
With a cast of more than 20, it is going to be a harem-scarem mad-cap show. James Clancy of Clancy’s Bar and Guesthouse is taking up the role of the rogue himself Conn The Shaughraun. He is a lovable blackguard and spends his time “fishin’ and huntin’ and sportin’ and drinkin’ and lovemakin’”. His best friend in the world is his dog Tatters and we have two wonderful local dogs destined for stardom who are sharing the role, namely Nydia and Poochy.
Conn is a vagabond and is to be found at the heart of every skirmish in the county Sligo. He spends the duration of the play trying to keep his friend Robert from harm. Robert, played by William Curley, is an escaped convict who is on the run from the Red Coats (Martin Murphy and James Hyde) and the local squire Corry Kinchela (Tomas Roche).
Kinchela has a band of baddies played by John Cullinane, James Ahern, Sean Twomey, Tom Doyle and Bart O’Donoghue (They are already the biggest blackguards in West Waterford) who are all out to get Robert, his fiancé (Emma O’Neill), his sister (Suzanne Kirwan) and his estate.
Luckily, the baddies are well matched by a team of goodies who are all trying to save Robert. Father Dolan is played by the ever reverent Donal Howard of Castlelyons.

Play Safe

Author: By Paul A J Rudelhoff & Jane Hilliard

Play Safe

Ex game show host Lance and his wife ‘Matron’ run “Fairlawn”, a small rest home for retired showbiz entertainers. They are an eccentric group of people who are still trying to re-live their days of fame on the small screen. Florrie was once the presenter of a wild life show and Mavis played a nurse in a hospital drama. Together they cause mayhem as they search for animals and injured bodies.
Miriam solved crimes and knitted! Peter was a vicar in a soap opera but prefers to remember his days as a Shakespearian actor and never misses an opportunity to quote the Bard. Poor old ex-stand-up comedian Charlie Chuckles! No one seems to get his jokes and now he is just a grumpy old man who enjoys causing mischief.
Carina the hired help does her best to keep them all in order and Matron runs the home with a rod of iron. Their patience is severely tested with the arrival of the “Bentley Boys”, two teenage mini crooks sent to the rest home to serve out their Community Service. It is soon apparent that “The Boys” have an ulterior motive for being at the home. They are looking for something and they are not the only ones! Who will find it first?
Chaos and mayhem run riot in this world of ex entertainers and small time crooks resulting in an extremely funny play with a great finish.

Jekyll & Hyde

Author: Originally conceived for the stage by Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden, it features music by Wildhorn, a book by Leslie Bricusse and lyrics by Wildhorn, Bricusse and Cuden.

Jekyll & Hyde



11th - 18th Nov 7:30pm
BLOS are proud to present the spine-chilling tale of Jekyll & Hyde. A musical phenomenon based on the novel The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, Jekyll & Hyde is the gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry, set to a powerful pop-rock score by Frank Wildhorn with book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. In an attempt to cure his ailing father’s mental illness by separating “good” from “evil” in the human personality, talented physician Dr. Jekyll inadvertently creates an alternate personality of pure evil, dubbed Mr. Hyde, who wreaks murderous havoc on the city of London.
As his fiancée Emma grows increasingly fearful for her betrothed, a prostitute, Lucy, finds herself dangerously involved with both the doctor and his alter ego. Struggling to control Hyde before he takes over for good, Jekyll must race to find a cure for the demon he has created in his own mind.

Buddy Cop 2

Buddy Cop 2



13-18 November 2017, performances at 7.45pm
Doors open at 7.15pm.
Two cops...in the kind of quiet little town where a kid dreams of growing up to be a fireman. Or a racecar driver. Where the only question you ask yourself at the end of the day is if you're gonna knock back your cold one at Swanky's, Spanky's, or Zingers. A town where neighbours pitch in to help neighbours in need, and where if you wake up in the middle of the night...you should keep your eyes closed. Because the man in red is there in the corner. Watching you. Smiling at you with his yellow eyes and black teeth. Best to pretend you're still asleep.
When a flood destroys the police station, the local cops set up shop in the nearby community centre, in this early 80s comedic action/mystery of holiday nostalgia and athletic rigour.
Directed by Dan Clarke
This amateur production of “Buddy Cop 2” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy ? giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.

Present Laughter

Author: Noel Coward

Present Laughter



Wednesday November 15th to Saturday November 18th
Hawk’s Well Theatre this November with its production of the Noel Coward classic comedy “PRESENT LAUGHTER”.
First staged in 1942, the play surrounds Garry Essendine, a self-obsessed actor who is in the throes of a mid-life crisis. Before he embarks on a tour of Africa, he finds that his past is catching up with him.
The theatre’s favourite leading man suddenly finds himself caught between a fawning ingénue, his estranged wife, a crazed playwright, and his best friend’s wife who wants to seduce him! The comedic events that follow have the makings of a sparkling evening’s entertainment.
The central role of Garry Essendine is played by Robert Fitzpatrick with Niamh Burke playing the role of Daphne Stillington, his young admirer. Shona Heffernan plays the role of Garry’s secretary Monica Reed; Muireann Tóibín plays the role of his housekeeper Miss Erikson and Gerry Ryan plays his valet Fred.
Garry’s ex-wife is played by Sarah Burns; his manager Morris Dixon is played by Paul Cadden; his producer Henry Lyppiatt is played by Barry Deignan; Joanna Lyppiatt is played by Orla Mc Sharry; Roland Maule, an aspiring young playwright, is played by Roy Mitchell; Lady Saltburn, Daphne Stillington’s aunt, is played by Margaret Curley.
One of Noel Coward’s lesser-known plays, “Present Laughter” is nevertheless a sharply written, stylish and very funny play – classic Noel Coward. It’s guaranteed good fun! Present Laughter offers a light, fun-filled evening at the theatre

Wagner concert with Stockholm Student Singer + guests



November 19, 2017, 16:00
On 19 November, a seldom heard work will be performed in the Berwald Hall: Richard Wagner's "Das Liebesmahl der Apostel" - one of the most famous man's sketches, the most grandiose works written for five (!) Manuscripts and orchestras. In addition to Stockholm Student Singer, Muntra Musicians (MM) from Helsinki and AF's Old Gossars participate. Everyone together creates a men's choir of about 150 men who will knock big in the Berwald Hall. Player makes the Royal Chapel, an orchestra that knows Wagner's music better than most.
In addition to this rare work, other well-known winners of Wagner will be performed, such as the Pilgrim choir of Tannhäuser. The choir singers can rest the voices when the Hovkapellet plays the outrage to the Masters singers, and we are invited to visit some of Sweden's most famous Wagner songs - tenor Lars Cleveman, Baron Marcus Jupither, Soprano Elisabeth Meyer and Alten Anna Larsson!
Do not miss this unique opportunity to experience a powerful driving force of one of the greatest composers; all lovers of Wagner's music will of course be there - you too?
The PS Concert is a charity concert whose surplus will go to UNICEF and their work with children in war-hit areas. We would like to take the opportunity to do good with Wagner's music, in an attempt to distinguish it from its ever-controversial author.

A young stranger, Clive, suddenly becomes romantically involved with Belinda even though it is Belinda’s sister, Rachel, who has brought him to the party. There is a shooting the next day, a case of mistaken identity, before normality is resumed at the house.

Nicholas Nickleby - The Musical



Wednesday 22nd - Saturday 25th November 2017
World Premiere of Nicholas Nickleby The Musical
After the death of his financially replete father, Nicholas Nickleby and his family travel to London to seek assistance from his father's older brother Ralph. Taking an immediate dislike to his nephew, Ralph employs Nicholas under the sadistic Mr. Squeers and his interminable wife, owners of a boys' school in northern England. In the meantime, Ralph seeks to use Nicholas' beautiful sister Kate as a ploy to influence his investors. Discourse forces Nicholas to flee the school with the crippled Smike, an orphan with no memories of his former life before he was brought to Dotheboys' Hall. On their journey back to London they meet up with Vincent Crummles and his acting troupe, befriend Ralph's good-hearted secretary Newman Noggs, and ultimately rise over adversity.

PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT

Author: by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott

PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT



22 November – 2 December 2017
Evenings at 7.30pm, Saturday matinees at 2.30pm
No performance on Sunday 26 or Monday 27 November
Based on the Oscar-winning 1994 hit movie, the critically-acclaimed stage musical version of Priscilla has played to packed houses all over the world during its journey over the last 10 years!
A colourful and vibrant spectacular featuring all-time dance and pop hits from the 80’s and 90’s, the story follows three friends brought together under very differing circumstances on their adventure from the glamour and sparkle of Sydney as they ‘Go West’ into the heart of the Australian continent and desert.
Their journey through the desert introduces them to a variety of memorable characters and situations that only three drag queens could find themselves in. Technicolour costumes and wigs, sky-high platform boots and dance anthems entertain from start to finish but at the very the heart of the story is the rekindling of relationships and new romances which will keep you smiling, laughing – and singing along!
Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical was first presented at the Lyric Theatre, Sydney, on 7 October 2006, directed by Simon Phillips.

November 23rd, 24th and 25th. Doors open at 7pm, curtain up at 7:30
Coleshill Drama Group now offers ticket sales online at coleshilldrama.org.uk for it latest production ‘Quartet’ by Ronald Harwood.
Although Coleshill Drama Group has been running for over 80 years, catching up with the 21st Century has often seemed a step too far for the small group of people who volunteer their time to the running and performing of plays. An inordinate amount of time is needed to maintain the performances, membership and day to day running of the group, so much so that moving with the times has tended to be at the bottom of the list.
But not anymore! With an almighty push the group has grabbed the bull by the horns (or the computer by the keyboard) and now offers ticket sales online. The group hopes this will encourage more people to buy tickets and come along to the performances, especially younger people who are much more at ease with online sales.
The next performance is ‘Quartet’ by Ronald Harwood, now also a major motion picture, this play follows the lives of Reggie, Cecily and Wilf, three retired opera singers, whose sunset days are disrupted by Reggie’s ex-wife turning up and being the Diva she always was, refusing to sing at Verdi’s Birthday Gala. Full of cheeky comedy and poignant thoughts on life and ageing this will have you laughing and sighing in equal measure.

Saturday 2nd December 7.30pm
Sunday 3rd December 2.30pm
Following the success of last years “Dick and the Big Bad Rat” Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society have added an extra performance for this year’s production of “Cinderella”.
An original script, directed by Caz Littleton-Gray, this is a modern take on the traditional Cinderella story with all the characters you would expect plus some you might not.
Cinderella’s new Fairy Godmother has to make sure Cinders and Prince Charming marry to save the Kingdom of Copythorne. The trouble is the Prince doesn’t want to get married, the fairy Godmothers evil sister is jealous and doesn’t want there to be a happy ending and Cinderella’s two new “celebrity” stepsisters both want to marry the Prince too. Added to that, two trolls are trying to steal a famous dancing cow and the Chancellor is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
Will Cinderella and Prince Charming meet, fall in love and live happily ever after or will it be a “Disaster Darling”.
This year CATS will be joined for the first time by dancers from the Jo Hyne school of Dance who will be adding some extra fairy magic.

The Sisterhood (A Rehearsed Reading)

Author: by Molière translated by Ranjit Bolt

THE SISTERHOOD



Saturday 25th November 8.00pm, Main Stage
In ‘The Sisterhood’, Ranjit Bolt translates Molière’s 17th century comedy, ‘Les Femme Savantes’, to 1980s Paris, while retaining the rhyming couplet style of the original. Molière is famous for his satirical attacks on the pompous, pious, pontificating and proud. ‘The Sisterhood’ pitches a family of pseudo-intellectual women, and their pusillanimous pet poet, against two young lovers, who are ineffectually supported by the male side of the family. In a frenzy of exquisite and hilarious wordplay, insults fly, egos are pumped and pierced, and perceptions are exposed as deceptions. But at the end of this battle of wits and sexes, will love or learning win the day? Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

BLACKADDER'S CHRISTMAS CAROL

BLACKADDER'S CHRISTMAS CAROL



29th November - 2nd December 2017

This Christmas, we're presenting a very special adaptation of Blackadder's Christmas Carol!
In addition to adapting the script from the 1988 TV show, John Myhill is penning extra scenes in bring in all of Blackadder's incarnations - meaning this a Blackadder like you have NEVER seen it before!
The story is that of Ebenezer Blackadder who owns a moustache shoppe in good old Victorian London, and who happens to be the kindest and nicest man in all England. It is Christmas eve, and Blackadder's generosity means that he and his trusty man-servant Baldrick have the leanest of Christmases to look forward to. Visited by a Christmas Spirit, on his way home from giving spooky messages to the mean and miserly, Ebenezer is treated to hilarious visions of his ancestors' notoriously bad behaviour, as well as a vision of his decendants' future!
This adaptation includes unique scenes from all eras of Blackadder, including the Medieval and WW1 series not included in the 1988 TV show.

With the help of the Starlight Barking; dogs big and small; some helpful humans; and two very clever cats, Pongo and Missis set out on the adventure of a lifetime to find their pups and bring them home. Their quest to reunite their family leads them to the despicable Cruella de Vil.
Cruella hates dogs but loves fur coats and has her heart set on a new one with a black and white spotty pattern. Will clever Pongo and caring Missis manage to defeat evil, rescue their puppies, and get home safely in time for Christmas? Come and see.

The Crucible

Author: By Arthur Miller

The Crucible



29th Nov - 2nd Dec 2018
Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, this exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie—and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.

Stepping Out

Author: by Richard Harris

Stepping Out



Thursday November 30th until Sunday December 3rd 2017
Stepping Out, which enjoyed a recent hugely successful West End run and won Evening Standard Best Comedy Award for 1984, is a warm and very funny play about the lives of a group of nine women (and one man) attending a weekly tap-dance class in a dingy North London church hall. As the play progresses, the class's dancing improves to such an extent that by the climax, a grand charity show performance, they have been transformed into triumphant tappers, worthy of any chorus line. So get your dancing shoes on and head over to Moyne Community Centre next Wednesday night for a fun way to fill the winter evenings.
The production, will be directed by Susan Troy

A Tomb with a View

Author: Norman Robbins

A spooky thriller which puts the fun in ‘dysfunctional’!
The play is set in the library of a sinister, old house where an equally sinister family, the Tomb family, await the reading of their late father’s will. When the curtain rises the audience will soon be embroiled in twists, turns and shocks as the characters are bumped off one by one ….. but, the question is whodunit ???

The wacky characters are played by a strong Stewarton Drama group team. Hamilton Penworthy (Walter Findlay) is the all-knowing, pompous family solicitor who tries to keep the unruly, voraciously greedy Tomb family in check. The outrageously bossy, butch Emily Tomb (Alison Barr) vies constantly with her sisters – the vampish Monica (Laura Mundell) who oozes seductive charm, and the worryingly sweet and oh-so-sensitive Dora (Caren McLean).
The petulant Lucien (David Robertson) keeps reminding everyone that he is now head of the household, while he obsesses with his dubious scientific experiments, and his brother Marcus (Paul Glasswell) is so completely deluded, believing himself to Julius Caesar, that he needs a resident nurse, Anne (Julie Blackburn) who somehow manages to stay sane in the midst of all this madness.

Of course, such a play needs a formidable housekeeper - Agatha (Dee MacColl) imposes her dominance on the family and brings a chilly shiver with her everywhere she goes ! To complete the set, add in a couple of strangers who visit Monument House for the will reading – a female writer of romantic fiction, Ermyntrude Ash (Patricia Morrison), and her hapless secretary, Peregrine Potter (Jim Goldie). Now, who in their right mind, would want to visit the Tombs ?

Director of the show, Nancy McPherson said:

“A Tomb With a View” will put you right in the mood for the Halloween season. What with werewolf howls, weird characters - ranging from the eccentric to the completely bonkers - grizzly murders, startling revelations and panic attacks on stage, you will need a cool head to unravel the mysteries you witness in Monument House, home of the creepy Tomb family.

“If you’re looking for an evening of murder mystery, with a bundle of laughs along the way, this really is the show for you. Make sure you’re first in the queue for tickets and … watch your back ! ”

Thursday 5th and Friday 6th October 2017 7:30pm



Box Office: Tickets for the production priced at £8.00 each are on sale now at Stewarton Library or can be reserved by emailing the Group at stewartondramagroup@hotmail.co.uk

Sat Mat 2:30pm
This October Halloween, Argosy Players presents a night of Victorian mystery and the tale of a Gothic like creature roaming wild across the Moors in legendary author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most chilling tale of them all…. The Hound of the Baskervilles!
Let Argosy take you on a Victorian journey, back to the famed 221b Baker Street address, where a certain, world famous detective, studiously sits with a keen eye, hawked nose, and the trademark hat and pipe, patiently he awaits his next case…
Dr Mortimer, unveils an 18th century manuscript, as he recounts the myth of the lecherous Hugo Baskerville, and a family named plagued by a mysterious ancient and supernatural curse.
This surely is a case for a two pipe problem!
Sherlock and his ever trusted side kick Dr Watson, will have to wrestle with questions of natural and supernatural occurrences. Travelling to the ominous Baskerville Hall, encountering the strange butler, Barrymore who skulks the mansion alone at night with lantern in hand, keeping watch of the moors. The local town folk of Devonshire are gripped in fear and somewhat transfixed by the curse of the moors. Will Holmes' powerful intellectual faith in logic, on examining the facts and separating the fiction lead him to the answer this mysterious curse…. Indeed will yours?
An ancient family curse, a desolate moor, a spectral hound, and a deranged killer on the loose. The game really is afoot!
Argosy Players is proud to celebrate its 70th anniversary, bringing live theatre and entertainment to the Hillingdon community.

ANIMAL FARM: A DRAMATISED READING

Author: Adapted by Nelson Bond from the book by George Orwell

ANIMAL FARM: A DRAMATISED READING



5th – 7th October 2017 (3 nights)
Animal Farm is a fable with a sting. Much has been written about the threat of Communism, but it remained to the late George Orwell, farsighted author of the brilliant and frightening 1984, to expose the Russian experiment for what it really is; an idealist’s dream, converted by realists into a nightmare.
In a staged dramatic reading version of this timely allegory, you will meet beasts whose prototypes have dominated news headlines for many fearful years. Opening on a note of joyous triumph for the creatures who have emancipated themselves from the cruel mastery of a human owner, the reading mounts inexorably to a climax of disillusionment in which the other animals discover themselves now subject to the rule of even more ruthless autocrats: the greedy, cunning pigs.
BIntermingling humour and drama, Animal Farm wrings the emotions of its listeners, leaving audiences shaken with the tale of a tragedy that happened in a mythical barnyard far away but could happen in our own back yard.

A View from the Bridge

Author: by Arthur Miller

A View from the Bridge



Weds 11 - Sat 14 October 2017 and Weds 18 - Sat 21 October 2017 7:30pm
A View from the Bridge is a modern take on a Greek tragedy. It tells of a strong man who destroys himself in a clash between his blind passions and the primeval ideas of honour and justice within his own community.
Eddie Carbone, an Italian-American who works the docks in New York, agrees to shelter two illegal immigrants from Sicily, his wife's cousins.
Trouble begins when his wife's niece Catherine, whom he has brought up with a possessive love, is attracted to the good looking younger brother, Rodolpho.
It ends, as Greek tragedies do, with a frightening inevitability which builds as the play unfolds...
Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

GHOSTS

Author: by Henrik Ibsen translated by Mike Poulton

GHOSTS



Wednesday 11th - Saturday 21st October (Wed-Sat only) 7.45pm
Helen Alving is about to dedicate an orphanage she has built to the memory of her late husband, determined to keep his proud legacy alive despite their secretly unhappy marriage . Slowly the hidden secrets of the family are revealed, leading to devastating consequences. Ibsen’s Ghosts attracted controversy at its premiere for its scathing commentary on nineteenth century societal norms. It deals with contentious subjects such as religion, incest and euthanasia and, most shockingly at the time, venereal disease. But at it's heart it is a play about people and the personal ghosts they live with. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

GDS Productions return to the Central Theatre with 9 to 5: The Musical, a tribute to anyone who’s ever been overworked, underpaid or pushed to the edge by an ungrateful boss!
With music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, 9 to 5: The Musical is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.
At Consolidated Industries, the women run the show, but never get the credit. When their boss Franklin Hart Jr. pushes them to boiling point, unlikely friends Violet, Judy and Doralee join forces to turn the tables on him! The trio hatches a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot, and that plan quickly spins wildly and hilariously out of control.

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD

Author: adapted by Jessica Swale from Thomas Hardy’s novel

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD



MONDAY 16th to SATURDAY 21st OCTOBER at 7.30pm, with a matinee on Saturday 21st October at 2.30pm.
“It is my intention to astonish you all!”

When a spirited young working woman inherits a farm from her uncle, no-one expects her to run it alone…

This powerful story of swift sexual passion and slow-burning loyalty centres on Bathsheba Everdene – proud, intelligent and impulsive – whose life is complicated by three different men – respectable farmer Boldwood, seductive Sergeant Troy and devoted Gabriel Oak – making her the object of scandal and betrayal.

Thomas Hardy’s famous novel was listed at number 48 on the BBC’s survey The Big Read in 2003, and finished 10th on The Guardian‘s list of greatest love stories of all time in 2007. Still as relevant today as when it was written, it explores the precarious position of a woman in a man’s world who desires to live life on her own terms, and vividly portrays the superstitions and traditions of a small rural community.

Adapted for the stage by award-winning playwright Jessica Swale (Nell Gwynn: winner of the Egerton Foundation New Play Award 2015)

FRANKENSTEIN

Author: by NICK DEAR, based on the novel by MARY SHELLEY

FRANKENSTEIN



17-21 October
"Slowly I learnt the ways of humans: how to ruin, how to hate, how to debase, how to humiliate. And at the feet of my master I learnt the highest of human skills, the skill no other creature owns: I finally learnt how to lie."
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.
Frankenstein was first presented at the National Theatre, London, on 5 February 2011, directed by Danny Boyle.

A Kick in the Baubles



Tue 17th – Sat 21st October 2017
‘A laugh out loud Christmas comedy’
Frank Bauble does not wish it could be Christmas every day – in fact, he’s dreading the arrival of snobbish in-laws who only ever bring a single bottle of wine for the entire festivities. Throw in a couple of larger-than-life neighbours, let the drink flow merrily, and everything is set for a car-crash Christmas. But when Frank and Jean’s estranged daughter Milly suddenly appears, the rug is pulled out from underneath the chaos and the heartstrings are firmly tugged.

My Fair Lady

My Fair Lady



18th to 21st October 2017 7:15pm
Sat Mat 2:15pm
My Fair Lady, based on George Bernard Shaw’s classic play Pygmalion, tells the familiar story of Eliza Doolittle, a Covent Garden flower seller who, inspired by phonetician Henry Higgins’ public boast that he could change her social status by teaching her how to speak correctly, turns up at his door asking for lessons in order to fulfil her dream of working in a flower shop. However, Eliza eventually succeeds so well that she outgrows her lowly ambitions, and manages to become an indispensable part of Higgins’ life.
The original 1956 production of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews helped define the modern musical theatre. The original production enjoyed a seven-year run on Broadway leading to the 1964 film, which won several Oscars, including Best Picture.
The most recent London West End revival won the Olivier Awards for “Outstanding Musical Production” – “My Fair Lady” is an undoubted masterpiece which richly deserves, and repays, all the loving care the director Trevor Nunn and his company have lavished on it.”
Its classic musical numbers include “With A Little Bit of Luck”, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “On the Street Where You Live” and “Get Me to the Church on Time”.

Grow Up Grandad

Grow Up Grandad



18 October to 21 October at 19:45
The UK Mainland Amateur Theatre premiere for this play.
Grandparents! Look past the title of the play. This is an inter-generational story that deals with love and loss, hope and sadness as the relationship between Poppy and her Grandad is first thrown together and eventually torn apart. Poppy is 11, has attitude, but dreams of dancing in Blackpool. Ken is something of a hermit, a man living in the past with no television, no computer and no patience. While their relationship is volatile, it's also very funny and strewn with moments of real tenderness. This play is provocative, touching and not at all predictable! A UK mainland amateur premiere. Contains mildly offensive language.

This will be on at Poole’s Lighthouse from Thursday 19th October through to Saturday 21st October every evening at 7.30 pm and there will also be a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30 pm which will be captioned.
The Gondoliers is full of fun and wonderful music. It centres around two Venetian gondoliers who have just got married when they are told that one of them is actually the King of a small island kingdom of Barataria, but which one is not very clear! The Duke and Duchess of Plaza Toro from Spain are also looking for this ‘king’ because their daughter Casilda was betrothed to him when they were children, before he was smuggled away to live in Venice! She is, of course, in love with someone else. The tangled web is all sorted out in the end.
The production will be directed once again by Claire Camble-Hutchins who has brought such wonderful sparkle to our last 3 years’ shows and the music is under the very capable direction of Helen Brind who has joined us for the first time, but whose pedigree is extensive.

Power is a play full of wit and humour, scheming for money and power, and sexual conquests, set in France at the court of the young King Louis XIV between 1661 and 1664. When the all-powerful Mazarin dies, Louis decides to take the reins of power to reshape France and become an absolute monarch.

It is 1929 – on a night not unlike any other night, Brandon and Granillo commit murder. They strangle a fellow Oxford University student for the simple sport of it. What do you do to top a murder?

The only flaw in the plan? One of the guest knows them better than anyone else, understands how their twisted minds work…will their crime be kept secret or will their next encounter with a rope be the hangman’s noose? An engrossing psychological thriller, famously adapted for the screen by the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock. Clever, dark and wickedly enthralling.

TEN TIMES TABLE

Author: Alan Ayckbourn

TEN TIMES TABLE



20 and 21 October 2017
Set in the ballroom of the dilapidated Swan Hotel, a group of local members of the Pendon community are brought together to organise a town pageant based on a lost piece of local history, the massacre of the Pendon Twelve - where the Earl of Dorset crushed an uprising of rebellious workers, led by John Cockle. The committee comprises disparate characters with very different views of what the pageant should be and what it represents.
As the meetings progress, the group becomes ideologically divided with the left-wing side, led by a Marxist Polytechnic teacher, building it up as a political rally. The right-wing side of the committee formulating plans for a violent confrontation in response.
The day of the pageant eventually comes with the two sides firmly entrenched and reflecting the sides of the original event. The pageant ends in chaos, having broadly recreating the original event, leaving no-one better off.

24 to 28 October
Sat Mat 3:00pm
Hailed by critics and audiences for its heart and its wit, My Fair Lady is a beautiful musical about transformation, patronage, gender politics and class, based on George Bernard Shaw’s play, Pygmalion. The plot is relatively simple. Acclaimed Professor and confirmed bachelor Henry Higgins makes a wager with his linguistic colleague Colonel Pickering that in six months he can pass off gutter snipe Eliza Doolittle as a duchess at an embassy ball. Through arduous training, day and night, Eliza learns how to speak English properly, and transforms into a lady respected and adored by all classes. Along the way she bewitches young Freddy Einsford-Hill into falling in love with her, and convinces a supposed linguistics expert that she is royalty. However, she finds herself in a difficult position, now too refined to go back to her old life and not with any means or desire to live life as a lady of leisure.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Dirty Rotten Scoundrels



24th-28th October 7:30pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.
Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on the French Riviera, they attempt to work together, but soon decide the town isn’t big enough for the both of them. They agree on a settlement: the first to extract $50,000 from young heiress Christine Colgate wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing and guessing to the end!

Mendoza

Author: by Los Colochos

Mendoza



24 - 28 OCTOBER 2017
Start Time 8pm
Matinee Starts 3.30pm
An earthy, radical reimagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth set during Mexico’s War of Independence in the early 19th Century. General Mendoza is returning to camp when he stumbles across an old witch who prophesises that he will come to lead the army. Convinced into action by his wife, he begins a chain of grisly murders that will come to seem endless.
Inspired by Juan Rulfo and Elena Garro and deeply connected to the Mexican soil, this thrilling fast-paced and blood-soaked ensemble production exposes Mexico’s downward spiral into the gruesome violence that exploded into the world’s consciousness with the massacre of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa.
Presented in Spanish with English surtitles.
Please note this production contains smoking onstage and a live animal.

First performed in the West End in 2009 and now a global sensation, musical comedy Sister Act is about wannabe stage star Delores Van Cartier on the run from her gangland boyfriend, who’s given refuge in a rundown Philadelphia convent. At first in conflict with the nuns in the convent, Delores helps to turn round its fortunes– and finds love with cop Sweaty Eddie.
MHMTC is bringing the larger-than-life production, featuring the music of Oscar-winner Alan Menken, to the leafy Mill Hill suburbs with five performances running from Wednesday 25-Saturday 28 October 2017 at 7.30pm (Saturday Matinee at 2.30pm).

The Wedding Singer

The Wedding Singer



25th-28th October, 7:30pm nightly with a 2:30pm matinee on the Saturday
Are you ready to rock out with TMTG? Grab your widest shoulder pads and the biggest can of hairspray you can find, as we present hit comedy-musical, The Wedding Singer.
Based on the classic movie of the same name, The Wedding Singer will transport you back to 1985: a time when hair was big, music was loud and money was everything. Robbie Hart, a small-town wedding singer is engaged to marry the love of his life, but fate has other plans. Meanwhile, will Julia Sullivan, a cheerful if slightly naïve waitress ever marry her slimy boyfriend Glen and fulfil her dream of becoming Mrs Julia Guglia? Featuring a totally awesome 1980s score, this show is sure to leave you with a smile on your face and a head full of catchy tunes.
Tickets start at £10.50 and are available online now at www.tmtg.org.uk/tickets or from our box office at Lisa Costa Residential Sales and Lettings, 53 High Street, Thornbury from one month before the show.
Please note this production does contain some strong language and mild drug references.

Separate Tables



25th - 28th OCTOBER 2017
Based on one of Terence Rattigan's best loved plays, this delightful light classic takes place in the late 1950's during the 'off' season at the Beauregard Hotel, Bournemouth where the secrets of some of its regular guests are exposed. The Lovely, but vulnerable, Anne Shankland travels to the hotel hoping for a reconciliation with her ex-husband, not realising that he is now in a relationship with the hotel manageress.
Meanwhile other gusts are discovering the hidden truth about another of the regular residents - the alleged war veteran Major Pollock.

Drakul

Author: John Heimbuch

Drakul



Wednesday 25 October to Saturday 28 October (Wed to Fri 7.45pm Sat 5pm)
Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” is the quintessential vampire tale, and it created the most unforgettable horror icon in literature. Part charming aristocrat, part violent murderer, Count Dracula is a chilling combination of the supernatural and the human: a being of unimaginable evil lurking just beneath a skin-deep mask of civility.
John Heimbuch’s stage adaptation “Drakul” stays faithful to the original novel but brings Mina into the centre of the action.
Under the electric lights of Victorian London, she is enamoured of a handsome young solicitor. But when Jonathan disappears on a business trip, her friend mysteriously falls ill, and Mina is approached by an alluring foreign prince, a shadow falls over their lives.
As the Count’s influence grows across London, Mina and a group of near-strangers, band together to rid the world of the Un-Dead terror.
“Heimbuch intriguingly explores the psychology of these characters and the peculiar motivations that drive their actions.” ~ Examiner.com.

Following the roaring success of the last Pierrot production by playwright Peter Gordon, Murdered to Death, the Pierrots are proud to present the third in the series: Death by Fatal Murder.

Also joining the mayhem is a return visit from the clever Miss Maple. With more twists and turns than a Helter Skelter, Death by Fatal Murder promises to be a very entertaining evening full of hilarity and surprises.

60th ANNIVERSARY OF “THE MITCH” – now THE MITCHELL ARTS CENTRE

The history of the “Mitch” from the wartime appeal for a memorial to Reginald Mitchell through initial plans and development to its opening this week in October 1957 and on through 60 years of plays, shows and play festivals - celebrated by many societies and individuals closely linked to the Mitch, illustrated with photos and memorabilia. Hear about the fundraising and see the original architect’s impression of the proposed building and all its facilities. The famous Spitfire pilot Douglas Bader's speech is included, when he officially opened the building in 1957. The Mitch is the City's Memorial to Reginald Mitchell and has always been a great asset to the Youth and Community of the Potteries. There are behind-the-scenes videos and lots of pictures and reminiscences from some of the many drama groups to enjoy, and we conclude with a photo-montage of the work done to regenerate the building into The Mitchell Arts Centre and the opening show by the great illusionist Van Buren.

THE BROWNING VERSION - A REHEARSED READING

Author: by Terence Rattigan

THE BROWNING VERSION - A REHEARSED READING



Sunday 29th October 7.45pm, Main Stage
Andrew Crocker-Harris, or 'The Crock' as his students cruelly call him, teaches classics at an English boys' school. He is despised by pupils and staff alike as being strict, stern and humourless. Even Millie, his wife, no longer loves him and has started an affair with Frank Hunter, another teacher. On his last day at work before retiring, one student, Taplow, who feels sorry for him, gives him a small going-away gift. This puts into motion a series of events that cause Crocker-Harris to reflect on his past, contemplate his future, and evaluate how he is going to finish his tenure at the school. The Browning Version, first performed in 1948, cemented Rattigan’s reputation as a serious, mature playwright. It is considered one of his best works, and one of the best one-act plays ever written. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

Invincible

Author: by Torben Betts
Director Mark Scanlon

Invincible



Friday 31st October to Saturday 4th November 7.45pm.
It’s 2012; Emily and Oliver are finding the costs of living in the capital too much to bear so decide to downsize and downshift their middle class life to a small town in the north of England.
To try and break the ice and integrate themselves with their new surroundings, Emily and Oliver invite their neighbours, bimbo-esque Dawn and footie fanatic Alan, round for ‘drinks and nibbles.’
During a catastrophic evening of olives, cashews and bad cat paintings (amongst other things), class and culture collide in a mix of tragic and hilarious consequences.
Think Alan Ayckbourn combined with John Godber with a bit of Mike Leigh thrown in and you’re in the right area.
Invincible is a powerful yet very funny modern drama that won widespread high critical acclaim both during its London run in 2014 and when it toured nationally in 2016 and earlier this year.

“A spiky comedy of culture clash and embarrassment” - London Evening Standard

“A keenly perceptive play for today” - The Independent

The Rivals

Author: Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Director Denis Brogan

The Rivals



Tuesday 5th - Saturday 9th September 2017
This delightful comedy of manners by Richard Brinsley Sheridan mocks the conventions of romantic love, even as it follows the fortunes of two pairs of young lovers. In Bath 1775, the beautiful Lydia is living with her old aunt, Mrs Malaprop, a widow whose ability to mangle the English language is legendary. Lydia is determined to elope with the penniless Ensign Beverley, and refuses an arranged marriage with Captain Jack Absolute, whom she has never met. However, it is really Jack Absolute who is courting Lydia under the guise of Beverley. Lydia’s friend Julia is tormented by her devoted but suspicious lover, Faulkland. Sir Lucius O'Trigger, a bellicose Irishman, also thinks he is courting Lydia, but is being led on by Mrs Malaprop. Lydia’s other suitor, a country Squire, is persuaded, despite his extreme cowardice, to challenge the fictitious Beverley to a duel. However, no blood is shed, and although the course of true love does not run smooth, everything ends happily

Spring Awakening
A new musical


Author: By Steven Sater & Duncan Sheik
By arrangement with Music Theatre International of New York

Spring Awakening



5th - 9th September 2017 7:30pm
Based on Frank Wedekind’s controversial 1891 play this brilliantly scored, Tony Award winning rock musical takes you on a journey of sexual awakening, youth revolt, and self-discovery in a time when the establishment held all the cards. Although many will find the themes and subject matter disturbing, the underlying strength of this piece of theatre lies in its ultimate truth as the young men and women of Wedekinds original play together with todays music travel the fraught and rocky path of adolescence, discovering their bodies, their minds, and much more! An electrically charged and vibrant celebration of youth and rebellion, Spring Awakening fuses issues of morality, sexuality, and modern music into a story that packs a powerful emotional punch.

9 to 5: The Musical

Author: Dolly Parton

9 to 5: The Musical



Tuesday 5th to Saturday 9th September 2017
Performances evenings at 7.45pm, with a 2.30pm Saturday matinee
Cygnet Players are incredibly excited to be adding this show to our upcoming line-up: Dolly Parton’s hilarious musical comedy, 9 to 5: The Musical, based on the 1980 movie of the same name.
Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do – even in a man’s world! 9 to 5: The Musical is a story of friendship and getting ahead in the Rolodex era.
Outrageous, thought provoking, and even a little romantic, this show is about teaming up and taking care of business. Featuring original numbers from Dolly Parton’s Oscar, Tony and Grammy Award nominated score, including Backwards Barbie, Shine like the Sun, and the original hit song, 9 to 5.

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

Author: Jim Cartwright

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice



Mon Sep 11 to Sat Sep 16 2017 7:30pm
Blown fuses, real and metaphorical, punctuate the action with flashes of pent up energy in this acclaimed play. The diminutive heroine frequently plunges the dilapidated house she shares with her alcoholic mother into darkness by playing her dead father's records at a volume matched only by the soulful power of her vocal impressions. Little Voice has a hidden talent: she can emulate every chanteuse from Judy Garland to Edith Piaf. She hides in her room, crooning and dreaming of love, while her disheveled mother mistakes a seedy agent's interest as affection rather than enthusiasm for the gold mine buried in her daughter's throat. This is an engaging fairy tale of despair, love and finally hope as LV finds a voice of her own.

Goodnight Mr. Tom

Author: David Wood

Goodnight Mr. Tom



September 13-16, 2017 7:30pm
One of the most uplifting stories ever written, Michelle Magorian’s Goodnight Mister Tom is brought gloriously to life in this stage adaptation by David Wood. Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows sad young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley. All seems perfect until William is devastatingly summoned by his mother back to London.
Goodnight Mister Tom is a tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age scale that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers.
Goodnight Mr. Tom is Southwick Players entry for the 2017 Brighton And Hove Arts Council Drama Awards

And Evermore Shall Be So



Wednesday 13 September 2017 to Saturday 16 September 2017 19:30
A murder mystery with more than a touch of humour. Taking its title from the traditional song "Green Grow the Rushes O" the play explores the events surrounding a murder which took place four years previously and how strangely the song lyrics seem to fit so well with the circumstances. The story twists and turns, leaving the audience guessing until the very last speech of the play.

Joe and Samantha have been in a relationship for nearly 6 months (or 5 months, 3 weeks, 2 days as Joe points out), but Joe wishes they’d met many years earlier and had had a whole lifetime together. Samantha, however, is convinced it could never have worked as Joe thinks.
In a series of imagined past meetings, with none turning out as Joe hoped, Samantha tells him: ‘Life isn’t a set of what if’s. It’s what is’.

Cheshire Cats

Author: Gail Young

Cheshire Cats



18th - 23rd September 2017
Blisters, bras and best friends!
Cheshire Cats is a simple tale of grown women, aching feet, blisters, new trainers and bras!
Join Hilary, Siobhan, Yvonne, Vicky and Maggie as they prepare to speed-walk 13 miles round the London Moonwalk to raise funds for cancer charities.
Hilary just wants a good walking time, whatever the cost; Siobhan wants to help; Maggie wants to lose weight; Yvonne wants some time away from the men in her life and all Vicky wants is a man!
So, armed with their cats’ ears, tails, bow ties and skirts, follow the Cheshire Cats through their gruelling training to the event itself.
It’s about real women on a real girls’ night out with a mission to raise money for breast cancer.
It’s full of plenty of laughs, a few tears along the way and a rather interesting addition to the group that puts the cat amongst the pigeons.

THE RIVALS

Author: RICHARD BRINSLEY SHERIDAN

THE RIVALS



19-23 September 2017
“COME, COME, WE MUST LAY ASIDE SOME OF OUR ROMANCE - A LITTLE WEALTH AND COMFORT MAY BE ENDURED AFTER ALL”
Wealthy, head-strong beauty, Lydia Languish, wants to marry a poor man to offend her guardian Aunt and hopefully prompt a romantic elopement. Jack Absolute, himself a wealthy man, learns of this, and adopts the fake identity of Beverley, a poorly paid Ensign, in order to win her affections.
From this deception, many complications arise with hilarious consequences, not least because she has two other eager suitors in the shape of Bob Acres and Sir Lucius O’Trigger.
This pedigree comedy is too often staged simply as an academic opportunity to study the period. It is here to be presented as the fine situation comedy it is and it will definitely be played for laughs. That, after all, was the writer’s intention.

Goodnight Mr Tom



19 September to 23 September at 19:15
Sat Mat 2:00pm
A musical version of Michelle Magorian’s award-winning book, regarded as a modern classic. It is the story of William Beech, an artistically-gifted but abused young boy who escapes his brutal home life when he is evacuated to the countryside during World War II. He is ultimately rescued from his hideous upbringing when he is taken into the care of Mister Tom, a lonely old man. The original television version starred the late John Thaw. With Gary Carpenter’s soaring, tuneful score and Michelle Magorian’s beautiful lyrics, this is a wonderful, ultimately uplifting show which will appeal to young and old alike.

Habeas Corpus



ShowDates
The antics at the Wicksteed home are a satirical merry-go-round. Family, friends and the sexual satisfaction of the "corpus" (body) are the ruling passions in this farcical comedy of ill-manners. Through a dance of mistaken identities and carnal encounters, one motto holds fast: "He whose lust lasts, lasts longest."

It is some while since Thorpe Players have had a comedy evening, so it is time to remedy that. Last year we were saddened by the death of Victoria Wood, so this year we are staging a tribute to her, called, understandably enough, Victoria Wood: a Tribute Evening. Featuring her sketches and songs, this will be a chance to enjoy her humour and observational skills once again. We will also be sharing the proceeds of the evening with the Thorpe Village Hall Trust to help them pay for the (much-needed) new kitchen at the Hall.
Seating is cabaret-style at tables and, whilst we are not providing food or drinks, you are welcome to bring your own if you wish, and we will have an interval to enjoy it in. You do not have to book a whole table, although you can; singles, pairs and small groups are all equally welcome!

ORDINARY DAYS

Author: Music and Lyrics | ADAM GWON

ORDINARY DAYS



27-30 September 2017
“[Ordinary Days] captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility." — Charles Isherwood, The New York Times”
From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes Ordinary Days, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point).
Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life.
Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.
For Ordinary Days, Adam Gwon won the 2008 Fred Ebb Award for excellence in musical theatre songwriting and the 2011 Kleban Award in the Lyricist category.
PLEASE NOTE: Ordinary Days is being performed as a 'late night' show, and the Wednesday to Friday evening performances will start at 9pm after performances of The Nether.

Elsie and Norm, an elderly Northern married couple, are tired of inviting the neighbours round for board games and telly of an evening.
Realizing that what they all need is a good shot of culture, they decide to transform their living room into a theatre and put on their very own production of ‘Macbeth’.
However, it’s obvious that there are aspects of the play that need improving – the poetry doesn’t rhyme and no-one would laugh at what William thought of as jokes.
So Norm comes up with his very own and in his opinion, far superior version.....
What follows is an evening of total chaos as the hapless pair flounder their way through a hilarious mash-up of the Bard’s (once) great work.

No Sex, Please – We’re British!

No Sex, Please – We’re British!



Thursday 28th to Saturday 30th September at 7.30pm
This riotous comic farce notched up a staggeringly successful sixteen-year run in London’s West End. It premiered in 1971 and ran to 6,761 performances.

Peter and Frances could reasonably expect to look forward to a calm, happy start to their married life. Owing to an innocent mistake, however, they find themselves inundated with dubious material from the ‘Scandinavian Import Company’. Senior bank officials, Peter’s snobbish mother, and a prim, respectable bank cashier become inextricably entangled in the rumbustious events that follow.

Director Barry Kitchen said, “After directing ‘The 39 Steps’ last year, I was looking for another top-notch comedy and what better than ‘No Sex, Please – We’re British!’?”

This production marks Bishopstoke Players’ 70th anniversary and, like all previous productions, proceeds will be donated to the children’s charity ‘Action for Children’.

This amateur production of “No Sex Please – We’re British!” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

ARCADIA

Author: Tom Stoppard

ARCADIA



Thurs 17th - Sat 19th August 2017 at 7.30pm
Arcadia is a play of ideas, mixing elements of farce, romantic comedy, mystery and tragedy. The story goes back and forth in time between the early 19th century and the modern day, tied together by the same location; a stately home in Sidley Park, Derbyshire. In April 1809, a comedy of manner ensues. The tutor to the Earl of Croom's daughter has been spied in sexual congress with the wife of the poet, Ezra Chater, and is determined to avoid a duel of honour while trying to keep his indiscretions away from Lady Croom. Arguments and confusion over landscape architecture, carnal embrace and rice pudding ensue. Over 200 years later in the modern day, two researchers are visiting the home still lived in by the descendants of Lord and Lady Croom. One seeking information on a mysterious 19th-century figure called the Sidley Hermit, the other looking for information regarding Ezra Chater and his sudden disappearance from literature in 1809. Together, they piece together the events of the past and draw differing conclusions, resulting in a conflict of ideas between the two that could potentially tear history itself apart.

Run For Your Wife



Weds 28th June - Sat 1st July 2017 7:30pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm
This will be directed by Alex Bass, whose first directorial venture 'Par For The Course' has recently been nominated for the NODA District 11 - 'Best Drama' award!
Run For Your Wife is a superb example of the British farce which had audiences rolling in the aisles in London and New York! A taxi driver gets away with having two wives in different areas of London because of his irregular working schedule. Complication is piled upon complication as the cabby tries to keep his double life from exploding.
John Smith is a taxi driver and very ordinary, he has a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Streatham and a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Wimbledon. And he flits between Streatham and Wimbledon – a distance of only 2 miles – like an over-sexed bumble bee.
This could have gone on forever except that one day a policeman...but that would be giving the game away. RUN FOR YOUR WIFE ran for over eight years in London followed by a New York production. It was described by the critics as “British comedy at its best” and is constantly being revived all over the world.

Monty Python’s Spamalot

Monty Python’s Spamalot



7 - 8 July 19:30
9 July 15:30
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score for the new production, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader’s Digest Poll 2010 – before it went bust), Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
This is an amateur production brought to you by the Broadway Players. Licensed through Theatrical Rights Worldwide

Macbeth

Author: William Shakespeare

Macbeth



11th – 22nd July 2017
Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a play well-known to many of us, perhaps even going back to our school days where we suffered the slings and arrows of English teachers’ endless analyses of the power-crazed Monarch and his various treacheries, his over-ambitious queen and her descent into madness, and the weird sisters’ prophesies and exactly how a man could qualify as being “no woman’s son”.
The play is brought to life in Peterborough Central Park and on tour this summer, when Mask Theatre bring you their annual Shakespearean offering. Action-packed and full of emotion, this Shakespearean play takes no prisoners!

This thriller is set in a theatre that has been closed for sixty years following the accidental death of a child during rehearsals for Murder by Poison, a Victorian thriller. Now Micky, the great-grandson of the theatre's original owner, has set about restoring the theatre to the glory of its former heyday, and to cap his plans he's intent on reviving the very same play to re-open the renovated theatre. Only Micky's elderly and eccentric father William knows the truth of what happened all those years ago. He tries to warn Micky that the play is doomed and urges him to abandon his plans, but Micky ignores the warning and, as rehearsals progress, unusual and mysterious occurrences begin to mount with deadly and terrifying consequences.

The script is drawn from many of the excellent biographies available, particularly those by David Nokes, Park Honan and Claire Tomalin.
Another valuable source was ‘A Memoir of Jane Austen’ by her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh. Her own letters also provide a wonderful source.
Extracts include not only her popular novels such as ‘Sense and Sensibility’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Northanger Abbey’ ,’Emma’ and ‘Persuasion’ but many lesser-known works which can surprise even those who think they know their Jane Austen.

Pericles, Prince of Tyre

Author: William Shakespeare

Pericles, Prince of Tyre



25 – 29 July 2017 7:30pm
Pericles, Prince of Tyre is a swashbuckling adventure story, complete with kings and queens, handsome princes and beautiful princesses, marauding pirates, wicked stepmothers, sleazy lowlife and mysterious wizards; it offers shipwreck, plague, kidnap, murder, hope and despair, love and loss. The fast-moving narrative whisks us around the Mediterranean Sea, to Tyre, Tarsus, Antioch, Ephesus, Mytilene and Pentapolis, exotic locations rich with romantic connotations. We visit ships, palaces, seashores, and a brothel. It is a tale such as old sailors traditionally tell, one that would not be out of place alongside those of Sinbad, Aladdin and Ali Baba in the Arabian Nights. Which is why we shall be setting it in the magical world of Middle Eastern storytelling, where the content hovers in that tantalising zone between reality and fantasy.
Pericles, Prince of Tyre is one of Shakespeare's four late 'romances', all of which span a whole generation, allowing him in each case to show us a complete cycle of life. The central characters of The Tempest, Cymbeline and The Winter's Tale all find happiness after many years of pain, providing us with Shakespeare's most memorable and moving final acts. Not to give the story away, Pericles has arguably the best ending of the lot!

Cyrano de Bergerac

Author: by Edmond Rostand, adapted by Glyn Maxwell
Directed by John Savage

Cyrano de Bergerac

Romance, war, poetry, sword fighting, and a little baking – what more could you want from a theatrical experience?
A witty and delightful modern adaptation of the classic tale of Cyrano, who can express his love for Roxanne through his words, but whose enormous nose blights his prospects of winning her hand.

Bedroom Farce

Author: by Alan Ayckbourn

Bedroom Farce



Wednesday 31 May to Saturday 3 June (half-term)
Performances: 7.45 pm Weds-Friday, Saturday at 5.00 pm
Trevor and Susannah’s marriage is on the rocks. Over a long Saturday night they bring chaos to the homes of three beleaguered couples' bedrooms and by doing so expose the cracks in other people’s marriages as well as their own. But hope springs eternal even in the married breast, and redemption is always at least a faint possibility.
‘Bedroom Farce’, by Olivier and Tony award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn, is an intricate comedy that makes clever use of time and space. By turns funny and poignant, it charts the changing pressures on relationships at different stages of life, and shows us an ‘hilariously bleak view of middle-class marriage’ (Guardian). ‘As funny as anything he has written’ (The Times).
‘Bedroom Farce’ was Southside's first production in Clapham in 1987. Thirty years on, Southside is a thriving theatre group staging three main productions a year in Balham. This anniversary production will be directed by Liz Steer, one of the founders of the group.
“ The original production 30 years ago the audience was 145 and the production cost £600 to stage, 30 years performances are to 400 and cost £6000. Technology has changed significantly sound and ticketing is now all computerised, and instead of transporting the set on a bus we hire a van ! “

MACK & MABEL

MACK & MABEL



Wed. 31st May to Sat 3rd June/ at 7.15pm/ Sat Mat. 2.15pm
Based on the real life romance between Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand.
Sennett, famous director of the ‘silent movies’ with a passion for ‘making people laugh’ churned out ‘one reelers’ at a prolific rate which were lapped up by an adoring public.
We see his first meeting with Mabel (queen of the ‘silent movies) and follow the ups and downs of their stormy romance. The story unfolds through the wonderful comedic characters of that time-
Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle, the Keystone Kops and of course we have the obligatory custard pie fight!
Jerry Herman’s wonderful score is best remembered for helping Torvill and Dean to win the World Ice Dance championship in 1982.

2 one-act plays - Black Comedy and Who Calls?



Wednesday 31st May – Saturday 3rd June 2017 8pm (Doors open 7.30pm)
To celebrate 60 years of The Alexandra Players, we bring to you two one-act plays for your enjoyment!
BLACK COMEDY by Peter Shaffer
Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindlsey Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d’arte “borrowed” from the absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancee’s pompous father and a wealthy art dealer, Schuppanzigh. The fussy neighbour, Harold Gorringe returns just as a blown fuse plunges the apartment into darkness and Brindsley is revealed, teetering on the verge of very ripe farce. Unexpected guests, aging spinsters, errant phone cords and other snares impede his frantic attempts to return the purloined items before light is restored.

WHO CALLS? by David Campton
In the kitchen of a large Victorian house, four servants sit solemnly in the evening gloom. Upstairs, a midwife attends to the laying-out of their mistress, who has died suddenly, sitting in front of a mirror, adorned with all her jewellery. Mrs Abernethy, the housekeeper, and Lane, the Mistress’s personal maid, are supposed to have listed and locked away all this jewellery, but when Twilley, the maid of all work, finds a diamond ring on the floor, Cook realises that they have appropriated some of the jewellery for themselves and demands a share. Reluctantly, they agree, but then the bell in the Mistress’s room rings. The servants stare at the line of bells in disbelief and mountain apprehension – the midwife has gone, her duty done, and all the servants are in the kitchen – so who calls?

CLOUD; A New Musical (World Premiere)

Author: Kaye Vincent & Kaye Tompkins

CLOUD; A New Musical (World Premiere)



5th - 10th June 2017
An epic tale of forbidden love, hope and intrigue in a brave new world?
By Kaye Vincent and Kaye Tompkins.
In a future time, the human race has left a dying Earth. Small colonies tried to survive on other planets, but only one tribe remains, on the tempestuous Cloud. Join the survivors at Sharnbrook Mill Theatre Trust from 5th to 10th June 2017, where they’ll present this world premiere.
With a stunning score and thrilling plot, Cloud: a New Musical tells a story of hardship, hope, and conflicted love.
Hannah, a passenger aboard the final ship to leave Earth, falls alone into the colony on Cloud. Her arrival sparks tensions between the young, who yearn for adventure, and the elders, struggling to maintain order. Resentment also grows between the law enforcers and the workers, as resources run low. Passions run high and cracks appear as the Keeper (their spiritual leader) and Farin (their Governor) try to keep control of a population hemmed in between fiery lava fields and raging electric storms at sea. As the future of the Sand Tribes hangs in the balance, Hannah may be their last chance for survival.
Amid the action, struggles for power and forbidden love, are stories of misfortune and endurance. Above all, Cloud brings a message of hope. This is a tale of human resilience and the will to survive.
With a 40-strong company, featuring some of Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire’s finest talent, the stage is transformed into a rocky seascape, with crags and caves, bizarre creatures and raging sea storms. This world is inhabited by a population of families, rebellious youths, council members, workers and spiritual guides. Cloud boasts soaring ensemble work, passionate solos and duets, including tribal hakas, young fishers swinging ropes and young sirens swinging their hips. A world brought to life by the vision of the creative team and the talent of the performers.
From the imagination of Kaye Vincent and Kaye Tompkins, the creative team behind Chase Dark and Wired …..this is not a post-apocalyptic future you’ve seen before…….
This is Cloud.

Thursday 8th - Saturday 10th June at 7:45pm
Magenta Place, a prime time TV soap, is in trouble. Ratings have fallen like a stone and the writers can't come up with any new plots. After some advice from Natalie Thorpe, leading lady of a rival soap, Grover's Avenue, and "The World's Most Famous Northern Woman", they decide to take some action and hire Sasha Martindale, a notorious Production Consultant. Sasha turns out to be an eccentric genius, whose drastic actions turn around the fortunes of the failing soap, but not without some casualties along the way.
What follows is a ratings war between the two soaps and a whole load of devious and dirty tricks - not to mention the exposure of Natalie Thorpe's long-held secret!
But is all as it seems? As the Executive Producer of Magenta Place says "I'm beginning not to be able to distinguish between reality and fiction anymore." To which the seriously bonkers Sasha Martindale replies "Why would you want to, darling? Life is so much more exciting when you abandon that ability!

Hay Fever is a comic play written by Noël Coward in 1924 which was first produced in 1925. Best described as a cross between high farce and a comedy of manners, the play is set in an English country house in the 1920s, and deals with the four eccentric members of the Bliss family and their outlandish behaviour when they each invite a guest to spend the weekend. The self-centred behaviour of the hosts finally drives their guests to flee while the Blisses are so engaged in a family row that they do not notice their guests' furtive departure.

Tuesday 13th - Saturday 17th June 2017 7:30pm
Hilarious comedy of the worst singer in the world in 1940's New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale', she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics - instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels The Musical

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels The Musical



Wed 14th June 2017 - Sat 17th June 2017 at 7.30pm.
Sat matinee at 2pm
DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS is the hit musical comedy which opened on Broadway in 2005. Based on the 1988 film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, it received a staggering 11 Tony Awards nominations.
The show is set in the colourful world of the French Riviera where casino culture is rife.
Master con-artist Lawrence Jameson makes a living tricking rich ladies out of their money. But when Freddy arrives on the French coast, he challenges the status quo, and Lawrence’s position as chief con-artist is threatened.
They decide the town just isn’t big enough for the two of them and challenge each other to a bet. The first one to swindle $50,000 out of a woman wins.
They both take on the bet. However, they fall for the same woman and quickly realise that they may have bitten off more than they can chew!
Following on from the huge success of '9 to 5' last year, Beverley Musical Theatre are delighted to have secured the rights to perform this modern, hilarious musical.
With a cast of 30 and an 8 piece band, the show has a cracking score full of upbeat music that whisks you off to the Riviera's Beaumont sur Mer.

Author: G&S

Iolanthe; or, the Peer and the Peri



14th - 17th June at 7.30pm, with a matinee at 2.30pm on Saturday
Meet Strephon, a lowly Shepherd, and Phyllis, the ward of the Lord Chancellor. They're madly in love. There's just one problem - Phyllis' guardian won't let them get married, and the whole House of Lords wants to marry her instead. Oh, and Strephon's half-fairy, and his fairy family will turn the country upside down to make him happy. So, nothing can possibly go wrong then...

Iolanthe is a hilarious classic of the G&S canon, with brilliant music and sharp commentary on the House of Lords that remains as relevant now as it was in 1882.

The Game’s Afoot or Holmes for the holidays



14th to the 17th June 2017
Doors open at 7:00pm. Curtain-up at 7:30pm
Come and join the Circle Players for an evening of non-stop danger and hilarity in this glittering whodunit.
It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow actors, Aggie & Simon and Felix & Madge, to his Connecticut home for a weekend of revelry. This elaborate home, filled with gadgets and hidden passageways, becomes the setting for a murder and when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to uncover the secrets his guests are hiding? Will he discover who the murderer is before he or she claims another victim? Will he and his guests survive the weekend?

Run For Your Wife

Author: a comedy by Ray Cooney.

Run For Your Wife



Weds 28th June - Sat 1st July 2017 7:30pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm
This will be directed by Alex Bass, whose first directorial venture 'Par For The Course' has recently been nominated for the NODA District 11 - 'Best Drama' award!
Run For Your Wife is a superb example of the British farce which had audiences rolling in the aisles in London and New York! A taxi driver gets away with having two wives in different areas of London because of his irregular working schedule. Complication is piled upon complication as the cabby tries to keep his double life from exploding.
John Smith is a taxi driver and very ordinary, he has a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Streatham and a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Wimbledon. And he flits between Streatham and Wimbledon – a distance of only 2 miles – like an over-sexed bumble bee.
This could have gone on forever except that one day a policeman...but that would be giving the game away. RUN FOR YOUR WIFE ran for over eight years in London followed by a New York production. It was described by the critics as “British comedy at its best” and is constantly being revived all over the world.
