High Society is a musical based on the film of the same name which starred Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. This in turn was based on the Phillip Barry play ‘The Philadelphia Story’ the film of which stars Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, and Jimmy Stewart. The show features a score by Cole Porter and uses songs he wrote specifically for the production, along with a number of songs from his back catalogue. The story focuses on a wedding between a Long Island socialite and a pretentious executive that is thrown into disarray when her ex-husband arrives back on the scene. The year is 1938 and the era gives us an excuse to brighten up autumnal October with some lovely late deco glamour as we take a voyeuristic peak into the lives of the rich and glamorous inhabitants of Newport, Rhode Island.

October 30th-November 3rd 2018 7:30pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm


One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public.
Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years, and it’s the high water mark of Sondheim’s six remarkable collaborations with director Harold Prince.

Tickets: $7.00 - $18.00


Preview: November 1, 2018
Performances: November 2-4, 9-11, & 16-18, 2018

Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.
This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine – “something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”

This is a truly gut-bustingly funny and unique show that will definitely make you feel “special”.

Monday 5th - Saturday 10th NOVEMBER 2018 7.30pm Nightly

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatregoers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world. In this gleefully gruesome musical which has made audiences scream with laughter, Seymour, a poor florist's assistant, allows his craving for fame and fortune to seduce him into playing nursemaid to a man-eating plant he names "Audrey II” This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it BLOOD. Goings-on surrounding the growing plant's demand for more, more, MORE are accompanied by witty parodies of Sixties music including such classics as “Suddenly Seymour” “Somewhere That’s Green” and of course the title song. Remember whatever you do, DON’T FEED THE PLANT!

Geoids Musical Theatre is delighted to present The Pajama Game, an all-American musical comedy featuring songs such as Fosse classic "Steam Heat" and infectiously happy "Once a Year Day".
A hidden gem in the canon of classic musical theatre, the show was awarded the 1955 Tony for Best Musical and then claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical when it was brought back to the stage over half a century later. Today it is more relevant than ever, with a socially conscious message about workers’ rights at its heart.
The story revolves around Sleep-Tite, a small-town Pajama Factory in the 1950s, where sparks fly between new factory superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and well-loved employee Babe Williams. When the workers strike for a pay increase, it sets off a conflict between the big boss and the factory floor who are willing to do what it takes to win the right to fair pay. In the midst of the strike, romance blossoms between two headstrong characters on opposite sides of the tensions. What follows is a rollercoaster ride of exuberant music, dance and drama!
Geoids is excited to return this vibrant musical to the stage and uplift you with an exciting story of love, laughter and playing fair.

Set in a dugout in March 1918 near St Quentin, France, this is an iconic first world war play written by a man who had himself experienced the horrors of that war.
Set over the course of four days leading up to a massive German attack on the British trenches in March 1918, Journey’s End charts the tension and claustrophobia as the new recruit to the company, Lieutenant Raleigh, discovers that Captain Stanhope, his former childhood friend and hero, has changed almost beyond recognition.
One of the most famous plays of the 20th century, Journey’s End was written by R C Sherriff who himself had experienced the full horror’s of trench warfare as a 2nd Lieutenant for ten months from 1916 to 1917. This is why the dialogue in the play is so authentic as he ‘ merely had to write down what the people said at the time ‘. At times funny but also deeply moving this is one of the best plays ever written about warfare.

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. Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. 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. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe). All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe www.mtishows.co.uk

Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!"

The hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centres on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1050s. At the moment, they're playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New Yourk with five actors.

On the brink of a disasterous split-up caused by George's daliance with a young ingenue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter's clueless fiance and hilarious uncertainty about which play they're actually performing, caused by Charlotte's deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George's body.

Alan, a teacher of theatre, as well as a chauvinistic boor, makes fun of the play and as he continues to drink, of his wife as well. The “reading” turns into an emotional free-for-all as he recognizes himself being parodied in the script and as his relationship with Kelly is revealed. From then on, reality keeps changing, and the audience is repeatedly surprised until the final twist.

Based on the original 1963 script by Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and members of the original cast and used by Joan in her small Stratford East theatre, we celebrate not the First World War, but the songs and people of that war.
Imagine if Frank Muir had met Joan Littlewood; full of laughter and popular singable songs, it shows how those at home and in the trenches dealt with the monumental stresses of warfare. Call it skitting, satire, musical or farce, this is for everyone to enjoy - a big show in a little hall!
Based on the 1963 stage show, this is a satire on World War I (and by extension against war in general), the title coming from the music hall song "Oh! It's a Lovely War," which is one of the major numbers in the production.
Joan Littlewood wanted audiences to leave the theatre laughing at the "vulgarity of war". This is a show with everything - slap-stick comedy, songs, tragedy, and total respect for the fallen.
This will be part of the commemoration of the 100 years since the end of WW1 and we are working alongside Chertsey Museum and their Runnymede Remembered project.

Thurs 22nd to Sat 24th Nov 2018 7:45pm


The action of this clever whodunnit takes place in the dressing room of a provincial theatre during a performance of a thriller. The star, Addie, is attempting a comeback, and is understudied by her best friend Millie. Their constant bickering backstage belies a long history of friendship - which includes each of them having been married to the same charming impresario, Ed Gibb, many years ago. Suspense builds when Addie begins to feel unwell and, for the first time, Millie must take her place in the dramatic and violent last act of the play. In a startling twist, the violence becomes real - and Millie is dead. Was it suicide? Was it murder? Who put a real bullet in the gun she was using? With everyone a potential suspect, the tension doesn't let up until the final revelation unveils not only the murderer but the price some actors pay to practise their art.

It’s 1993 and the first female vicars are being ordained. Church Warden George Williams has rented out the vicarage (which was empty while waiting for a new vicar to take up the post) to a travelling drama company for a Murder Mystery weekend in order to pay for his daughter’s wedding. Unfortunately, Bishop Herbert, determined to have the first parish with a female vicar, appoints Caroline Timberlake before the weekend can take place. Luckily Caroline decides to keep a long-standing reunion with her college friends and the Murder Mystery goes ahead. But events take a farcical turn when Bishop Herbert decides to visit his new vicar! Actors, guests and church dignitaries create total confusion as George tries to salvage the weekend – and still get paid!

Oh yes it does!
The next production by the Latimer Players will be ‘Rapunzel’, a traditional pantomime, with jokes, sketches and audience participation for all the family to enjoy. Originally based on a 17th century French fairy tale, ‘Rapunzel’ tells the story of a princess who was stolen at birth from her parents the King and Queen. Gothel, the wicked witch, has Rapunzel prisoner in a tall tower and the only way in is for Rapunzel to let down her hair for the witch climb up. The King and Queen and the villagers long to have Rapunzel home to celebrate her eighteenth birthday and work together to get her back helped by three fairies and Prince George. Ball and Socket , Gothel’s inept henchmen, add to the mix. Also, as part of the plot, Hetty, the Princess’s Nurse, is desperate to marry to Willie, the gofer, who is having nothing to do with it.
As well as some of our usual pantomime actors, we are pleased to have four new acting members join us who are taking on principal roles.
Just like Rapunzel, let your hair down and come and join us.
We are always looking for new members and now could not be a better time to join us. Come and be a villager on stage or help back stage moving scenery, painting and building. You don’t have to be experienced in any of the tasks - just enthusiastic! Give me a ring if you are interested - Christine 0116 237 6855.

22nd, 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th November and 1st December at 7:30pm

"Blackadder" needs no introduction to most having been an enormous comedy hit series in the late 1980's. But this work is still fresh and extremely funny, yet pertinent, today.
Depicting in this final series of "Blackadder", in it's unique satirical manner, the events of the First World War ending in 1918 that changed social structures for ever; it is fitting to put this production on stage in 2018.
This stage adaptation is faithful to the original work and characterisation but there is sufficient license to bring surprises and additional content to engage the audience at many levels beyond the enormously funny and edgy comedy that was controversial in some quarters when it was first written.
New to Guilsfield Director Graham Wood and a very experienced cast expect that this will delight and entertain our regular audiences and many more besides.
We hope you find that we do justice to the talents of the original cast including Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Laurie, Tony Robinson, Stephen Fry, Tim McInnerny

THURSDAY 22 NOVEMBER, FRIDAY 23 NOVEMBER, SATURDAY 24 NOVEMBER - 7.45PM

Henry Higgins, author of Higgins Universal Alphabet is persuaded to transform Eliza Doolittle from a cockney flower girl into a duchess, by teaching her to speak ‘properly’. Convinced of his superiority through birth, wealth and because he is a man, we observe his teaching methods with a mixture of amusement and distaste. For Henry, Eliza is an object to be manipulated so that he can prove a point. But, of course, as the experiment proceeds Eliza grows in confidence and is determined that ‘her voice’ will be heard and her feelings understood.
Throw into the mix Henry’s surprisingly enlightened mother, Eliza’s philosophical dustman father and we have one of Shaw’s wittiest and most enduring plays.
Frome Drama Club are delighted to welcome the experienced and highly respected Simon Blacksell to direct this classic piece, of which he says: “Pygmalion is a play about the way men treat women as things and not as people, let alone as equals. It is also about class and the way the working classes are patronised by the upper classes. Shaw makes certain that we are left in no doubt where our sympathies must lie”.

Weds 28th November – Sat 1st December 2018 7:30pm
Sat Mat 2:3-pm

This is a very moving play which follows the story of the innocent and enthusiastic men who volunteered their services to their country after Kitchener's calls for a New Army. Their experiences of life on the Western Front are contrasted with the women who are left behind in Accrington; women who come together as friends when facing financial, social and sexual deprivation, as well as being thrown into the social changes that came along with the absence of many men.
The main characters are; May, independent, hard-working, fruit and veg stall holder, Tom her lodger, optimistic and idealistic and Eva, May's trusted and generous confidante and sweetheart of Ralph. The play has fun and light hearted moments, which are starkly contrasted with the terrifying reality hundreds of men faced at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

A guitar-player, he is a rural Orpheus who descends to rescue his love—not in Hades, precisely, but amid the intrigue, gossip and violence of a hot-tempered town…Orpheus Descending is one of Mr. Williams' pleasant plays, with characters determined to free themselves from corruption, with some sensitive philosophical comments in passing about the loneliness of the human being condemned in his world to solitary confinement for the whole of his life.

With the help of her friends Hilda and Harry, pensioner Mavis Davis has been writing best selling books in the style of ’50 shades of Grey’ under the assumed name of ‘M.S. DIAS VIVA’. So far she has managed to hide her identity from her family and the public. The books prove to be a huge success and there is talk of a film but Mavis wishes to remain anonymous and much to her agent’s dismay is now writing her very last book.
With the deadline approaching Mavis needs to be in her in her own home finishing the final chapter of the final book.
Her family however have other ideas and have arranged for her to go into a nursing home for the Christmas period while they are on holiday in America.
Mavis hatches a plan to send her forgetful friend Esme to the nursing home in her place and as Esme cannot remember who SHE is most of the time and the nursing home has not met Mavis before, she seems like the perfect replacement.
Harry and Hilda arrive to assist with the writing and to spend Christmas with Mavis. However, their plans are thwarted when Christopher, Mavis’s grandson, turns up at the house thinking it will be empty and planning a party for his ‘mates’
With the arrival of several more unwanted guests chaos soon reigns and to add to their problems someone has leaked Mavis’s address to the press and a journalist from ‘Take a Look’ magazine is on her way to expose Mavis and her double life.
Mavis and her friends go to great lengths to keep the journalist out of the house with unexpected consequences and hilarious results.
