Wed 1st Feb - Sat 4th Feb 2017 7:30pm Sat Mat 2:30pm
In a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive mill-worker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent ‘up there.’ Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day fifteen years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father’s reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instils in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love.

Wed 1st Feb – Sat 4th Feb
The classic BBC TV comedy series set in WWII of the Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea who battle daily against the Germans and local ARP Warden Hodges, comes to the Garrick stage complete with all the well-loved characters: “stupid boy” Pike, “Don’t panic, don’t panic” Jonesy, “Doomed, we’re all doomed!” Fraser, “May I be excused, sir?” Godfrey, and all under the command of the redoubtable Captain Mainwaring and his effacing deputy Sergeant Wilson.
Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic send-up of the British government, Parliament and class system is as fresh today as when it was premiered in the 1880s. Iolanthe, a fairy, has been banished from fairyland because she married a mortal. Her son Strephon is half a fairy and wants to marry the lovely Phyllis – but so do all the House of Lords! Will there be a happy ending? Favourite songs include ‘Tripping hither, tripping thither’, ‘Strephon’s a member of Parliament’, ‘When Britain really ruled the waves’ and ‘Faint heart never won fair lady’.

31st January – 4th February 2017
“Shove them down the front of your trousers. People notice what’s missing more than they notice what’s there. Only one pair though, don’t get ambitious.” It started as a sudden strange fancy: Polly Perks needs to join the army to find her lost brother. Except that in Borogravia, women aren’t allowed to join the army. A haircut, a change of clothes, and an extra pair of socks later, Polly is now Private Oliver Perks, marching off to war as part of the finest army in the world, an army with a secret. Joined by a (reformed) vampire with a coffee habit, a troll, an igor, a Lieutenant who is more of a danger to himself than the enemy, and Sergeant Jackrum the most legendary sergeant in Borogravia. With enemy forces fast approaching, Polly and her fellow recruits are suddenly in the thick of it, without any training, and the enemy is hunting them. Will the best man for the job be a woman? Monstrous Regiment is the adaptation of the best-selling Terry Pratchett novel of the same name. A real treat for existing fans and those who are totally new to Discworld. (A flat planet supported by four elephants standing on top of a giant turtle who swims through space going no one knows where).

Author: A new musical by Elliot Davis & James Bourne
13th - 18th Feb 2017
Loserville takes geek to a whole new rock-pop level. Nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Musical in 2013 and many more accolades, Loserville is based on the groundbreaking album "Welcome to Loserville" from the band Son of Dork. It's 1971. Misfit computer geek Michael Dork and his friends are about to change the world. It's just that no one knows it yet. Michael has also discovered a girl, Holly, a prospect (almost) as exciting as his love of binary. If only he had the courage to talk to her! Perhaps things haven't changed that much after all! You would never expect that the geeks would have inherited the world. But they did! Loserville gives us the seventies with a cast of characters that are totally recognizable and a score that's entirely contemporary. Featuring an electric pop-rock score and a hysterical book, this is an ideal show for high schools and colleges looking to rock out in a high-octane, no-holds-barred feel-great musical.

When he starts taking vitamin pills... well now... that proves he's chasing after other women! Shhh... Don't Tell the Wife!
Three estranged sisters meet on the eve of their mother’s funeral to argue and misremember in Shelagh Stephenson’s examination of the structures of memory and family. As they attempt to organise her funeral, their memories of their childhood run together and the secrets of their separate lives are revealed. Theresa, owner of an alternative therapy business, is angry that she was left to care for their dying mother. Mary, a doctor, is still struggling with a deep loss from her past. Catherine seeks attention through a succession of short-term partners. When the play opened at the Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1996 it was awarded the Olivier Award for Best Comedy. But it is melancholic too, as the emotional bruises of the sisters’ childhood emerge. Memories fade, blur and persist as the sisters bicker, watched over by the ghost of the mother to whom they are preparing to say goodbye.

On a summer's day in a makeshift theatre by a lake, a group of people gather to see Konstantin's radical new play performed. What follows will alter the course of their lives forever. Chekhov's classic meditation on how the old take revenge on the young is both comic and tragic, and Tom Stoppard's witty and fast paced adaptation draws out perfectly the irony of this biting satire.

Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for human blood. As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of blood. Just when it’s too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial origins and his true drive for world-domination

Do you remember a gentler time, when poets were superstars? When television was an important part of family entertainment? When the pace of life was perhaps a little slower, with no internet to impart events before they happen? Come back in time with us, to a Girton with a burgeoning TV station. To a Girton whose main stage was second in desirability only to the London Palladium for the Top Stars. To a Girton with a first class dairy, where cows were milked by milkmaids with film star looks. Where groups of Maidens could have the pick of positions in the Entertainment Industry and be as indecisive as they wished about marriage proposals. Where any man had to pursue the girl of his dreams with no certainty his affections would be returned - for long. This long-forgotten era can be revisited in the hall at Girton Glebe School during the last weekend in February, when some of the following questions may be answered. Will the 'Boys' of Dragoon'd recapture the hearts of the star-struck girls they were once engaged to? Will the heartless poet get his comeuppance? Will Major, Colonel and Duke overcome cramp and aestheticism to become the heart throb frontmen of Cambridgeshire's Number One Boy Band once again? And will Girton's answer to Marilyn Monroe marry her childhood sweetheart, who has become a writer of verse with so much god-like grace, he is besieged by Maidens wherever he goes?

This Happy Breed
Author: Noel Coward
Saturday 25th February at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Sunday 26th February at 2.30pm
If you think that Noel Coward is all about posh people with cocktails and cigarette holders, think again. "This Happy Breed" was written in 1939 and produced in London in 1942 Although a popular film was made in 1944, this is a rarely produced play. The play takes place over a period of twenty years and follows the trials and tribulations of the lower middle class Gibbons family in Clapham, South London between 1919 to 1939. It is a long play in three acts. We are producing this play at Larkfield Village Hall for three performances on 25th and 26th February. Tickets are available now - the excellent cast are currently working very hard at the moment and we are all very excited about producing this rarely performed and amazing play, which will make you both laugh and cry - don't miss it. This play is one of our entries into the Kent Drama Association's 2016 festival.

Set during World War II, this play is based on real-life stories of Jewish children given safe passge to the UK from Germany and Austria. It focuses on Eva, daughter of Helga and Earnest, who arrives in Manchester to live with Lil, an unemployed mother-of-one. Faced with indifference and exploitation, but also sympathy and kindness Eva comes to peace with her new environment. A touching and intimate play shedding light on a little-known period of British history.
