In the twilight world of gangsters and their molls, Nathan Detroit is losing his grip on the institution of the floating crap game (the dice gambling scheme he runs which keeps changing venue in order to avoid detection by the local police) and is desperate to find the money to pay for the only location he can currently get his hands on. To seal the deal and quell the tempers of the gangsters who are gathering in town and keen to 'shoot crap' he bets his buddy, Sky Masterson, a thousand dollars that Sky will not be able to take a local Salvation Army girl, Sarah Brown, on a date to Havana.
Meanwhile Nathan, engaged for fourteen years to cabaret artist Miss Adelaide, is struggling to keep her demands for marriage at bay, whilst she continues to battle with the symptoms of an incessant psychosomatic cold which plagues her all the time she is waiting to go down the aisle.
Sarah isn't taken in by Sky's obvious charm and brushes off his advances until it becomes clear that her struggling Salvation Army mission will be closed down by General Cartwright if it doesn't prove itself to be more successful in attracting the local population of 'sinners'. Since Sky has promised her that one dozen of his comrades will show up at a forthcoming prayer meeting, she is convinced to travel with him to Cuba where, under the influence of alcohol, her defences slip and they realise they are falling in love with each other.
On returning to New York, Sarah discovers that, unbeknown to Sky, Nathan and his buddies have been using the empty mission as a site for the crap game. Sarah feels duped and Adelaide is furious that Nathan can't give their relationship priority over his gambling habits. At a crap game held in the sewers of New York, Sky bets all the members of the floating crap game that if he wins his roll of the dice, they will have to join him at the mission to repent their sins. After winning his bet, and after Sarah and Adelaide plot to reform their respective lovers after marriage, the mission is saved by a successful prayer meeting led by Nicely's gospel-like confession and the couples tie the knot in a joyous double wedding.

Run by “big-boned” Maureen, Jackie comes to get away from her philandering husband and she’s started to bring her young sister Whitney along to keep her out of trouble, and Donald comes because he secretly loves Maureen – he’s lost 12 stone so far – if he doesn’t ask her out soon there’ll be nothing left of him! Things seem to be on the up when Sophie, a researcher for a reality TV programme, comes to check out the club but when a snowstorm arrives it brings with it revelations that will change their lives forever in this comedy about friendship, frostbite and French fries.

Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me



Frank McGuiness

3rd, 4th and 5th April 2014

Box Office: 0161 292 2420

Have you heard the one about the Englishman, the Irishman and the American? It may sound funny but this comic combination is no joke when they are slowly going mad in a bare, Beirut cell. Strangely, Frank McGuiness’ play about inhumanity could almost be listed as a comedy since there are so many funny lines in this award-winning drama.
The three men, a brash, athletic American, a cynical Irish journalist and a “buttoned up, stand-offish” English lecturer are taken hostage by unseen captors in the Middle East. Their very different cultural backgrounds add a whole other dimension to their struggle to simply stay alive and sane. The three’s vivid imaginations are the only defence they have against their daily battle with the despair about the grim reality of their seemingly endless incarceration, but how those imaginations shine through. You could be forgiven for thinking that this play would be filled with doom and gloom but Frank McGuiness has crafted an utterly compelling, humour riven, piece of drama which ebbs and flows with almost heart stopping moments of hilarity, tension, friendship and fantasy and as such is an absolute “must see”.

An amateur drama company is rehearsing in the theatre at the end of the pier. Storms rage overhead and the doors are locked — they are trapped! Then a mysterious, ghostly presence passes across the stage, and when the Assistant Stage Manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, the remaining actors are thrown into disarray. Their panic increases when one of the actresses is poisoned and it becomes evident that a murderer is in their midst...

Rossini’s comic masterpiece tells the rib-tickling tale of how Figaro, the barber and jack-of-all-trades, uses his wit and trickery to help the young Count Almaviva woo the lovely Rosina from under the twitching nose of her jealous old guardian. Stunning disguises and wild impersonations are all part of his cunning plan – and even then it nearly ends in catastrophe (as these things generally do). All of this marvellous comic action is set to Rossini’s sparkling music and utterly irresistible tunes – including Figaro’s famous aria loved by millions across the world.

The opera is a parody of the stock melodrama—the villain who carries off the maiden; the priggishly good-mannered poor-but-virtuous-heroine; the hero in disguise, and his faithful old retainer who dreams of their former glory days; the snake in the grass who claims to be following his heart; the wild, mad girl; the swagger of fire-eating patriotism; ghosts coming to life to enforce a curse; and so forth. But as one critic noted, Gilbert turns the moral absolutes of melodrama upside down: Good becomes bad, bad becomes good, and heroes take the easy way out.
The Baronets of Ruddigore are cursed. Anyone who succeeds to the title has to commit a crime every day—or perish in inconceivable agony.
Robin Oakapple, a young farmer, loves Rose Maybud, but both are too shy to tell the other. But Robin has a secret. He is really Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd, the rightful Baronet of Ruddigore, in disguise. His younger brother, Despard, believing Ruthven to be dead, has assumed the title. Robin's foster brother, Richard, seeking Rose for himself, tells Despard of Robin's deception, and Robin is forced to accept his true position, losing Rose to Richard in the process.
Now the Baronet of Ruddigore, Robin is confronted by the he ghosts of his ancestors who step from their picture frames in the gallery of Ruddigore Castle to confront him for failing to conscientiously commit his daily crime. Robin eventually finds a way of satisfying his ancestors demands whilst continuing to live a blameless life…

Where Is The Life?



by Martin Roche

4 - 12 April 2014

Box Office: http://www.lyceumtheatre.org.uk/ or Ticketsource

The Lyceum Theatre is proud to have been chosen to present the World Premiere of Martin Roche’s “Where Is The Life”. Martin is a local playwright best known for his award winning musical “Witchfinder” that had its world premiere at Mossley in 2008.
“Where Is The Life” features four retired thespians, Tom, Colin, Alan and Don, in The Beeches, a residential home for retired gentlemen of the stage. Despite their ups and downs they have created their own family in The Beeches to replace the families they no longer seem to be part of.
When Kelly, the new care assistant arrives, Colin, angry, cutting and sarcastic, who is the queen of this castle, preys on her relentlessly as she has all the things he can no longer have: youth…..and time.
Despite this Kelly finds in them a family she has never really known and she gives them a priceless gift…by helping them come to terms with their life in their remaining years.
“Outrageously funny yet intensely moving.”

It is a challenge for our cast to keep straight faces and do all the things they have been trained not to do resulting in a good night out for you and all the family.

WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND is this Easter’s family treat from the award winning TOpS, supported by The Young Set. Based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell and subsequent Richard Attenborough film, Whistle Down the Wind follows the fortunes of a fugitive caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young. Whistle Down the Wind revolves around the time and place where the word teenager was invented. Swallow, a 15 year-old-girl growing up in America’s deep South in the fifties, discovers a mysterious man hiding out in a barn. When she asks who he is and the first words he utters are “Jesus Christ”, it’s as if all her prayers have been answered. Swallow and the town’s other children vow to protect the stranger from the world that waits outside – the townspeople who are determined to catch a fugitive hiding it their midst. As fantasy and reality collide, Swallow is torn between the two and begins to discover who she is and where she is going.

The air is thick with factory smoke, children play with rats in the gutter and London is ablaze with sin and treachery. A young boy, unaware of the cruelties of the city, rescues an escaped convict and sets in motion events that will lead to the creation of the most notorious and glamourised serial killer of the 19th Century - Sweeney Todd.
When corruption of the law is rife and crime lurks on every corner, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street sets out to bring the upper classes to it's knees and the lower classes to the table.
Prestwich Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society (PADOS) are proud to present their adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's razor-sharp tale of vengeance, true love and one man's crusade to right a terrible justice.

Drunken romances come back to haunt the characters of Garforth Amateur Dramatic Society’s next production in April. Brian (David Battersby) turns up unexpectedly for Sunday dinner at the home of Sheila (Anita Rushforth) and Andrew (Martyn Drake).
Brian had enjoyed a few glasses of wine with Sheila a week earlier – a night Sheila cannot remember – and she has to create a web of lies to hide Brian’s identity.
To add to the confusion, solicitor Andrew’s secretary Carole (Stephanie Selwood) appears and believes her boss had promised her a romantic trip to Italy at an alcohol-fuelled party.
The characters all have to cover their tracks which sets off a chain of misunderstandings during an enjoyable farce.
Our licenced bar, serving beer, wine and soft drinks will be available from doors open to curtain up and also during the interval.

As night falls and fog descends on Monument House Hotel and Alternative Health Spa, Hecuba Tomb and her niece Drusilla receive a series of unexpected visitors.
Novelist Philippa and her assistant Daphne are seeking refuge from a mysterious follower they fear may be the notorious "Norfolk Strangler". Hot on their heels come TV historian Quentin Danesworth and vacuous honeymooners Robert and Miranda.
The uninvited guests are soon snooping around the secret passages of the creepy old mansion and asking too many questions for comfort. Sure enough, one by one they fall victim to violent deaths by devious techniques, no secret panel is unoccupied, no cup of tea untouched, and nobody is who they appear to be.

It is the final match of the season and the winners take the league title. The problems start when the keenly-fought match is a draw between the rival bowling clubs and must be replayed a week later.
Abbeywood {the home team} suspect that WestWorth {the away team} may attempt to sabotage the green so set up an all night vigil to keep watch.
Having an occasional nip from an illicit vodka bottle to keep the cold away.
The arrival of a suspicious 'alcohol intolerant' Police officer causes disruption so they slip her a coffee laced with powerful Polish vodka, before too long they have a drunken member of the constabulary on their hands, who they quickly hide in the mower shed.
When they are joined by a suspicious senior police officer investigating the disappearance of the first one, their troubles really begin.
The reality of the dilemma of having two hidden police officers and a police car to hide away until after the match dawns on the bungling, bowler kidnappers and things go from bad to worse with hilarious results!

South Pacific is a musical composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and book by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan. The work premiered in 1949 on Broadway and was an immediate hit, running for 1,925 performances.
Can a girl from Little Rock find happiness with a mature French planter she got to know 'one enchanted evening' away from the military hospital where she is a nurse? Or should she just 'wash that man out of her hair'?
Bloody Mary is the philosopher of the island and it's hard to believe she could be the mother of Liat who has captured the heart of Lt. Joseph Cable USMC.
While waiting for action in the war in the South Pacific, sailors and nurses put on a musical comedy show. ... the drama of South Pacific unfolds. The story is backed by an outstanding musical score including some of Rodgers & Hammerstein's immortal songs:
"You've Got to Be Carefully Taught", "Younger Than Springtime", "Some Enchanted Evening, "Bali H'ai"
"I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair"
"There Is Nothing Like a Dame", and many more ...
If you know the show and you know the quality of SDMS then please get your tickets early - we are expecting 'sell out' performances!!

In a world devastated by natural disasters, tender love and unbridled desire are notable survivors. As part of the struggle to control the planet’s dwindling resources and rebuild a crumbling society, both the big guns and the little fellas are soon up to all their old games – seduction, adultery, trickery and all manner of earthy comedy familiar to readers of 21st century tabloids.
The big question is, who can afford love? With music of exquisite eloquence, Cavalli gives us the answer.

LOOT



by Joe Orton

25th Apr - 3rd May

Box Office: 01732 363849

Director: Phil Porter
“Loot” follows the fortunes of two young thieves, Hal and Dennis. Together they rob the bank next to the funeral parlour where Dennis works and return to Hal’s home to hide the money. Hal’s mother has just died and the money is hidden in her coffin, while her body keeps appearing around the house. With the arrival of Inspector Truscott the plot turns topsy-turvy. To the dismay of Hal’s father, Mr. Mcleavy, Hal and Dennis, aided by Nurse Fay, try to keep the Inspector off their trail.
This is a dark farce that satirises the Roman Catholic Church, social attitudes to death and the integrity of the police force. Playing with all the conventions of popular farce, Orton creates a world gone mad and examines in detail English attitudes at mid twentieth century. The play has been called a ‘Freudian nightmare’, sporting with superstitions about death and life. The Sunday Telegraph described it as: “The most genuinely quick-witted, pungent and sprightly entertainment by a new, young, British playwright for a decade”.

Stewarton Drama Group are all set to represent the West of Scotland at the National Final of the Scottish Community Drama Association’s One-Act Play Festival, at the Village Theatre, East Kilbride on Friday 25th April at 7.00pm, with their multi-award winning production of ‘Waste Management’, written and directed by SDG member, Nancy McPherson.
If you would like to come and support Stewarton Drama Group at their performance at the National Final you can book tickets priced at £12.50 each, by telephoning the East Kilbride Village Theatre Box Office on 01355 261 000 / 248 669 (or 0141 613 000) quoting Scottish Community Drama Association One Act Play Festival.
Our journey to the National Final began back in February, when we were placed First in Ayrshire at the first round of the competition in Kilmarnock’s Palace Theatre where our team also lifted the trophy for the Best Stage Lighting. Following on from our win in Ayrshire, our team’s success continued when, for only the 5th time in our 40-year history, we were placed first from an original entry of 46 plays across the whole of West of Scotland, at the Western Divisional Final last month in the Fullarton Theatre in Castle Douglas. We also lifted the trophy for Best Stage Presentation.
At the National Final in East Kilbride at the end of April, our team will compete as one of the top 8 plays in Scotland, performed by clubs from as far afield as Orkney, Aberfeldy, Inverness and Plockton for a single coveted place at the British Final of the competition in Stirling this summer, and the chance to represent Scotland at the conclusion of this annual competition which began with an original entry of 125 plays.
This is only the 10th occasion in our 40-year history that Stewarton Drama Group have made it to the prestigious National Final of the competition. The Group have previously achieved third place overall at the National Finals in 2001, 2004 and 2013 with our productions of ‘Bar and Ger’, ‘Murphy’s Law’ and ‘Excess Baggage’, and second place overall at the National Final in 1986 with our production of ‘The Choristers’. In 2008 – in our most successful year to date - we won the National Final for the first time with our production of ‘One Good Beating’, which then also went on to win the British Final in Wales later that year.
This year’s entry, ‘Waste Management’, which was first performed in the Stewarton Area Centre in May 2013 as part of SDG’s ‘Evening of Comedy and Drama’ was runner-up in the UK wide ‘Geoffrey Whitworth Play Writing Competition’ in 2011. The play focuses on the relationship of Danny (Jim Goldie) and Linda (Laura McPherson), a couple who bump into each other at a recycling bank after a split-up. As they debate what is to be discarded or salvaged, it emerges that they are at a clearing point in their fragile relationship. The dynamic and spark in their relationship gives rise to some sharp humour, but underneath they are struggling with the confusions, chaos and disappointments of life and gender role expectations. The casual and brief intervention of two strangers (David Robertson and Caren McLean) curiously helps them to focus, and in the end they have cleared enough space to move on.

Comedy Thriller by Patrick Barlow
Directed by Sean Duxbury
Hold onto your hats and maintain your stiff upper lips - this gloriously exciting thriller is full of danger, hilarity, derring-do, double-crossing, and dastardly murders.
Loosely based on John Buchan’s novel, and inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s film this fast-paced play set in 1930s England puts the cast through it’s paces as handsome hero Richard Hannay is forced on the run from double-crossing double agents after being accused of murder. With our hero being tracked from London to Edinburgh (and back again) nowhere is safe and no-one can be trusted.
This ripping yarn will have you laughing out loud as bungling policemen, underwear salesman, and Scottish hoteliers conspire to stop our hero clearing his name and saving King and country.

Tickets £12 (concessions £10)

Guildburys Theatre Company will be serving up a treat for your Bank holiday enjoyment at the Electric theatre from April 30 – May 3.
‘Ten Times Table’, by the master of comedy, Alan Ayckbourn, has a delightful array of zany characters – at least one of whom you will have met, and all of whom you will recognise. Ray Dixon is the all round enthusiastic ‘nice chap’ who chairs the committee from hell as they attempt to organise a pageant to celebrate a local historical event; regretfully, push comes to shove as arguments ensure that it turns into a fete worse than death.
Lefty Eric has an axe to grind and he would really love to bury it in opinionated Helen’s head.
Not content with pointing out grammatical errors in the minutes, Donald Evans tries to calm everything down with his ‘exciting’ tales of serving on the leisure and amenities committee.
Audrey, Donald’s aged piano-playing-deaf-but-not-so daft mother, has a solution to it all – boiled sweets!
Sophie has designs on lefty Eric, but Eric’s girlfriend Phillipa isn’t as quiet as she seems.
Sophie’s brother Tim is armed with a gun and determined to win the day; as for poor old Lawrence – he is permanently armed with a very large whisky in which he can drown his sorrows. Mayhem is only a heartbeat away and it can only end in tears – but yours will be of laughter.
A superbly talented cast in a cracking comedy. Don’t miss it.
