Footloose

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home.
When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.
To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
Presented by the Ripley and Alfreton Musical Theatre Company through special arrangements with Rodgers & Hammerstein.

Roger is having trouble getting a team together for the afternoon’s fixture against the British Railways Maintenance Division Yeading East but this proves to be the least of anyone's worries. Bob is having marriage trouble as he is still doing odd jobs for his ex-wife behind his current wife Ginnie's back. Dennis is also having marital trouble, as his wife seems intent on moving house despite the fact they only moved recently. When he finally puts his foot down she sets fire to his new car. Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie while at the same time nurse his injured spinning finger and Alex's new girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics. Even Roger's seemingly perfect marriage to Miriam hits the skids when she discovers he was playing away from home in more ways than one on a trip to Dorking last year. Just when it seems things can't get any worse for them, it starts to rain.
Love Life, Love Cricket, Love watching them all come crashing down in a hilarious play by Richard Harris.

The Witches of Eastwick

In the tiny New England town of Eastwick, Rhode Island, three modern day witches innocently plot and conjure over a heady brew of weak martinis and peanut butter brownies. But when their longings are made flesh in the arrival of one Darryl Van Horne, all hell breaks loose. Quite literally.
Dana Rowe and John Dempsey’s stage musical of the smash hit movie, was originally produced at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and Prince of Wales Theatre by Cameron Mackintosh during 2000 and 2001. The show was re-written for a successful UK tour which starred Marti Pellow.

Hairspray

It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland, and quirky, plus-sized, teenage Tracy Turnblad has one dream: to dance on the “Corny Collins Show”. When she gets put in detention with the African-American students in the school, they teach her some of their dance moves, and her new found groove wins her a spot on Corny’s show. Overnight, Tracy transforms from a nobody into a star, and uses her newfound influence to advocate for racial integration on the television show.

Author: William SHakespeare Richard II

Shakespeare’s beautifully written play, RICHARD II, brings into sharp focus the last two years of a turbulent a twenty two year reign which swung violently between the people’s adulation for God’s anointed ruler and their fear of a vicious, spiteful despot.
In 1397, when the play begins, after being continually frustrated and humiliated by his powerful uncles and magnates who want to curb his power, he takes his revenge. He has his uncle, Gloucester, murdered, banishes his cousin Bolingbroke and steals the lands of John of Gaunt, his uncle and Bolingbroke’s father, when he dies. These fateful decisions bring about the tragedy that is RICHARD II. We watch an increasingly desperate, deluded and frightened monarch literally fighting for his kingdom and his life.
Our touring production brings all the pain and drama of both a ruler and a country trying to reconcile power and governance with the right of the people to be heard and considered. This tale has many parallels with what we see today in news from around the world. It is an emotionally powerful story very much for the twenty-first century.

The society are delighted to welcome back director Christine Scarry in her second show with the society, after directing last year’s hugely successful award winning production of “Michael Collins – A Musical Drama”.
Christine will direct a stellar cast that includes Kevin Reade and Sarah Brennan in the iconic roles of the tormented and vengeful barber - Sweeney Todd, and the entrepreneurial and amoral meat pie shop owner - Mrs. Lovett. They will be joined by David Doyle as Anthony - a naive young sailor - and Kevina Hayes as Johanna – Todd's long-lost daughter and Anthony’s love interest.
Ciarán Dunphy plays the flamboyant Italian rival barber Adolfo Pirelli, with Adam O’Brien as Tobias Ragg - Pirelli’s downtrodden apprentice.
The lecherous Judge Turpin will be played by Fergal Millar, while Alan Grant will play Beadle Bamford - a pompous public official who is deeply loyal to the corrupt Turpin. Delia Larkin will play The Beggar Woman - a deranged and schizophrenic woman who harbours a dark, surprising secret.
This magnificent cast will be supported by a 12 piece orchestra, a chorus of nearly 50, and the usual high standard production values associated with Kilkenny Musical Society performances.
Christine will be joined on the creative team by renowned musical director David Wray in his first show with the society.
This production will also feature scenic design by John O’Donoghue, and lighting design by Gerry Taylor.

Little Shop Of Horrors

House Plants...
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood Sci-Fi smash musical, 'Little Shop Of Horrors' has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years.
The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names 'Audrey II' - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it...BLOOD! Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's 'The Little Mermaid', 'Beauty & The Beast', and 'Aladdin') are the creative geniuses behind 'Little Shop Of Horrors'. One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, this charmingly tongue-in-cheek, dark comedy has been produced worldwide to incredible success and critical acclaim.

It Could Be Any One Of Us

Author: Alan Ayckbourn

A thunderstorm. In a windswept country house a family of failures wrangles over a will: a detective who has never solved a case; a writer, an artist and a composer whose works have never been published, shown or performed, and a dysfunctional teenager. Here are the prime ingredients for a murder mystery, but this diversion is by Alan Ayckbourn and it has a number of surprises. The victim is not who it should be, the murder's identity changes overnight and the thrills are leavened with tongue in cheek humour and ironic comment.

Author: Verdi La Traviata

Stanley Opera bring Verdi’s great opera to Hinckley’s Concordia Theatre in a brand new production set in the captivating post-war glamour of 1920s Paris.
Written by Verdi at the peak of his powers, La Traviata is heartbreaking and unforgettable. He poured some of his most poignant music into this intimate story of family tensions and blighted love. The result is a profoundly moving masterpiece with a story and music which tug intensely at the heart-strings.
Violetta Valéry is a celebrity courtesan at the heart of Parisian society, an intoxicating life she grasps with both hands until she unexpectedly falls in love. Only then does she discover that – looked on as a fallen woman of no moral worth and forced by circumstances to sacrifice her one chance of true love – she can never escape the consequences of her past.
With a cast led by Rachel-Louise Stonehouse, Alexander Anderson-Hall and Chris Marlow and with supporting cast and the full Stanley Opera Chorus, La Traviata is the perfect two hours in the theatre for anyone with a heart

Author: Patrick Marber After Miss Julie

The power of wealth – or the power of sex?
If you missed our November 2014 production, you will be pleased to know that you have another chance to see the play when it performs at this year's Hertford Theatre Week…
Step inside the downstairs world of a privileged country home and discover that all is not as it seems. Escalating sexual and class tensions end in tragedy for Miss Julie in Patrick Marber’s reworking of Strindberg’s classic.
After Miss Julie is not a translation of Miss Julie but a version of it, moving the action from the original nineteenth-century Sweden to the England of 1945 – specifically to 26th July, the day of the Labour Party’s landslide election victory. Miss Julie is the daughter of an aristocrat who, drunk after a party, flirts with her father’s chauffeur John and sets in train a series of events that lead to tragedy. Class suspicions and resentments, the erotic collusion of the antagonists, the struggle against repressive social mores — all feature in this sharp, tense drama which combines Strindberg’s original vision with Patrick Marber’s own consummate skill in drawing believable and psychologically astute characters whose every word has point and deadly meaning.

Author: Andrew Lloyd Webber Sunset Boulevard

With Christmas just around the corner, why not take some time out from the hustle and bustle of the local shops to treat yourself and your friends to something a little bit special.
Winner of 7 TONY Awards including BEST MUSICAL , this lush and sweeping tale of Hollywood’s darker side features one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best scores, including the hit songs ‘With One Look’, ‘As If We Never Said Goodbye’ and the number one hit ‘The Perfect Year’.
Sunset Boulevard weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Silent movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of ‘talkies’. Having escaped from repossession agents finds Joe Gillis at Norma’s faded, dilapidated mansion. “You used to be in pictures – you used to be big?” Joe asks, to which Norma responds, “I am big… it’s the pictures that got small!”. Their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion.

With shootings, plane crashes, train crashes, villains with missing fingers and an escape over the Forth bridge, it’s easy to forget that this cult tale is predominantly a love story of a man and woman who have never fallen in love before, discovering a reason to love and be loved .. whilst running through the Scottish mist and clinging to bridges!

‘There’s a beast at the door and he’s wild and he’s free, but we don’t let him in ‘cos we don’t want to see what is lurking, right behind the façade’
Jekyll & Hyde is an evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart.
Convinced the cure of his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of man’s evil nature and his good, Dr Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
Music by Frank Wildhorn.
Book and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.

Author: a murder mystery by Richard Harris Death In High Heels

It's a big day at Christophe et Cie, a small couture house off Regent Street. Mr Bevan will announce which of his staff he is sending to France to be general manager of a new branch in Deauville. Will it be the talented and elegant Miss Doon or the loyal and long-serving Miss Gregory? Perhaps senior saleswoman Irene or showroom manager Dorian will get the job. Events take a dramatic turn over a lunch of rabbit curry when Miss Doon collapses and dies, poisoned by the oxalic acid crystals that another employee, Rachel, has been using to clean her hat.
Inspector Charlesworth and Sergeant Wyler have a murder enquiry on their hands. Behind the glamour and gossip of a 1930s fashion house, secrets and lies are rife and more than one person may have harboured resentment towards Miss Doon.

Author: Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd-Webber Evita

The stunning musical from Rice and Lloyd-Webber
This iconic musical presented by Portrush Music Society tells the remarkable and real life story of Eva Peron, the second wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron.
It follows Eva Duarte’s journey from humble beginnings in the slums of Argentina through to extraordinary wealth, power and status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the spiritual leader of the nation.
The story begins at Evita’s funeral in 1952 where we are treated to the cynical reflections of our narrator Che, who has watched her meteoric rise to fame. It then backtracks over her earlier life, noting her seduction by the tango singer Magaldi, her move to Buenos Aires, her many romantic dalliances there before her introduction to Colonel Peron, whom she helps groom for presidential office by persuading him to leave the military and affiliate with the trades unions, the unflattering reactions she receives from the elite middle classes, her inspirational charity work and eventual ill health and death aged just thirty three.
Its music, by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice, includes some of theatre’s most beautiful and best loved songs, including Don't Cry for Me Argentina, On This Night Of A Thousand Stars and High Flying, Adored.

When the understudy takes the stage at a provincial theatre, the gun fires bullets instead of blanks and she is killed. Who was the intended victim? Who loaded the gun? The focus is on human motivation rather than police investigation in this theatre mystery.

The legends of Atlantis prove true as Sirens and sea monsters take centre stage in the new Redmoor Academy production.
A boy, Adam, found by the sea shore as a baby, lives in fear of being bullied each day by the children of the orphanage in which he lives. His only hope lies in the friendships he has made, particularly that with Evie, a young girl who loves him.
Meanwhile in the undersea kingdom of Atlantis the Regent plots with the evil Siren queen to invade the surface and bring about a new world order. Those who stand against him are mercilessly killed or exiled. His daughter, Marina, joins a group of rebels in a bid to stop her father.
The two stories intertwine when Adam is stolen by Sirens and meets Marina. They share a secret which, when discovered, could mean their deaths or their victory.
Filled with intrigue, battles, monsters and heroes Full Fathom Five is an epic new musical with the simple love of a girl for a boy at its heart.

Sister Act


SISTER ACT is a feel-amazing musical comedy. It tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to REJOICE!
There have only been a limited number of licenses released so our production will be the local premiere. The show has fantastic roles for men’s and woman, and a choir of all-singing, all-dancing nuns. There are lots of great clips on YouTube if you haven’t seen the show.
The show will be directed by Lorraine Bottomley with her team of Andy Merrifield as MD, Ella Martin as choreographer and David Bottomley as assistant director and stage manager.

Ladies' Day

Author: Amanda Whittington
Directed By Therese Ball

A play about friendship. Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome, Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot at York. Out go the hairnets and overalls, in come the outrageous hats and heels, as the four ditch work, don themselves up to the nines and head off to the races for a drink, a flirt and flutter. If their luck holds, they could hit the jackpot - and more besides....

Drums in The Night

“It was you I wanted to see. Otherwise I’d be lying where I belong, would have wind in my skull, dust in my mouth, and know nothing. But I wanted to see you first.”
What do you do when you return from war to find your life turned upside down?
How do you act when your beloved country is in turmoil and your fiancée is celebrating her engagement to someone new?
Where do you go when you don’t fit in with the impassioned revolutionaries or the heartless middle class?
At a time when we are commemorating the centenary of World War One, Drums in the Night (winner of the 1922 Kleist Prize) focuses on the impact of the War in 1919 Germany, as we follow Andreas Kragler through the streets and bars of a Berlin in turmoil. This is the story of one soldier struggling with the aftermath of the First World War. Yet the personal and political conflicts he faces can be felt just as keenly today.
Staged with a multi-rolling ensemble cast and live music, Drums in the Night is a little seen gem from the start of Brecht’s illustrious career, with a “language you can feel on your tongue, in your gums, your ear, your spinal column” (Herbert Ihreing).
When the final drums sound, will you fight for the revolution, or for the one you love?
