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

In The Heights

In The Heights

IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

MACBETH

Author: William Shakespeare
Directed by Mark Oldknow
Produced by Tom McGrath

MACBETH

Full of sound and fury, Macbeth and his wife seize on the prophecy of the wyrd sisters and plunge Scotland into civil war.
No-one is safe as he takes the bloodiest of paths to take the crown and secure his legacy.
The production, whilst contemporary in feel, uses Shakespeare's words, and his raw, passionate poetry throughout.
If you were lucky enough to catch the group's stunning production of 1984 last Easter, you will not want to miss this.

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.

A More Perfect World

Author: By Tony Green

A More Perfect World

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.

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'?

13 and 14 April at 8pm
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.

A Bunch of Amateurs

Author: Written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman

A Bunch of Amateurs

A Bunch of Amateurs is a love letter to amateur dramatics. This is a heartwarming comedy telling the tale of the Stratford Players and their plans to save their theatre from closure. Directed by Helen Rasmussen, co director Ian McDonald, the play features Scott Peters as faded Hollywood star Jefferson Steele who comes to take the lead in the players’ production of King Leer. Expecting the RSC, not deepest Suffolk, misunderstandings and comedy collide to bring you a highly enjoyable evening, and there will be a bar ??????

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

Directed by Sam Grayston

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”?

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?

Thursday 26th, Friday 27th and Saturday 28th of April (7:30pm)
and a matinee on Saurday 28th of April (3:00pm)

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.

26th, 27th and 28th April 7:30pm
