|Tower Theatre Company|
The Bridewell Theatre, off Fleet Street
The Habit of Art (London amateur première)
Author: Alan Bennett"Bennett the maestro returns with a multi-layered masterpiece." (The Independent - 5 stars)
Directed by Victor Craven
"Another absolute cracker, often wonderfully and sometimes filthily funny, but also deeply and unexpectedly moving." (Daily Telegraph - 5 stars)
Composer Benjamin Britten, sailing uncomfortably close to the wind with his new opera, Death in Venice, seeks advice from his former collaborator and friend, poet W. H. Auden. During Alan Bennett's imagined meeting of these two great men, their first for nearly twenty years, they are observed and interrupted by amongst others their future biographer and a young man from the local bus station.
"You are a rent boy. I am a poet. Over the wall lives the Dean of Christ Church. We all have our parts to play."
Alan Bennett's play is as much about the theatre as it is about poetry or music. It looks at the unsettling desires of two difficult men, and at the ethics of biography. It reflects on growing old, on creativity and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion is spent : ultimately, on the habit of art.
"Auden often said that metre and rhyme led him down unexpected paths to thoughts he wouldn't otherwise have had, and in this respect versification and fornication are not so different."

Author: Alan Aykbourn
Directed by Andrew Hamel-Cooke
|This play was first presented at the Stephen Joseph Theatre-in-the-Round Scarborough then subsequently at the Olivier Theatre. National Theatre, London on the3rd June 1980, directed by Alan Ayckbourn.|
The action of the play is clever, funny, at times poignant: and centres on the lives of two sisters Abigail and Dorcas. Abigail is struggling with an unsatisfactory marriage to an upwardly mobile businessman: Patrick, whilst Dorcas is involved with a less than inspiring boyfriend: Stafford. Into the sisters’ lives comes bronzed, athletic Simon who appears the epitome of each sister’s innermost desire. A tussle between the two sisters as to which one of them can ‘win’ Simon provides moments of hilarious Ayckbourn comedy, whilst the more serious implications of modern relationships are not overlooked. A hilarious Ayckbourn comedy.

Author: A two act play
By Phil Mac Giolla Bháin
|The O’Donnell family have been in Glasgow for three generations.|
Young Séamus O’Donnell first set foot in Scotland in the 1940s to build the great hydro plants in the Highlands.
The young fella from Donegal was proud that there was no stronger man on the site.
Séamus wasn’t planning on staying in this foreign place, but he married and settled and in time he became just plain “Jimmy”.
In early 2014 Séamus “Jimmy” O’Donnell has defied medical common-sense and stubbornly refuses to die after a massive stroke.
His legendary physical strength has abandoned him and will not return, but the spirt remains.
He wants to return home to his house in Govanhill where he reared his family, but the professionals are concerned about how he will manage on his own.
When the play opens his son Michael and his granddaughter Annemarie are discussing what is best for him. As the events of the independence referendum campaign unfold in the streets of Glasgow and in the Scottish media what unites and divides the different generations of the O’Donnell clan come into sharp relief.

|AODS (Alton Operatic and Dramatic Society) is proud to announce its next performance. Flushed by the roaring success of Fawlty Towers last Autumn, AODS have turned their varied and impressive skills to an original World War II time theatrical and musical revue, a commemoration of 70 years since the decisive final stages of that epic conflict, with popular songs from the era, set in a Radio Station somewhere in deepest darkest Home Counties.|
Radio Days is set during WWII and follows a group of people working in a radio station during the war, losing friends and loved ones who receive their call up papers, the departures and arrivals of letters and the emotion of the continual goodbyes or the arrival of a dreaded telegram. We hope to evoke the atmosphere of the period 1939 to 1945 through songs, play excerpts and monologues. This specially created show uses a variety of songs from the period toe create laughter, sadness and acknowledges the lives of those who were on the home front.

THE LATE EDWINA BLACK
Author: William Dinner and William MorumThe domineering Edwina Black has just died, and the general feeling appears to be of relief rather than grief. The local community whispers that her death is a disguised blessing for all concerned, particularly her henpecked widower Gregory (Farrar) and downtrodden personal companion Elizabeth (Fitzgerald). Unknown to anybody, Gregory and Elizabeth have been clandestine lovers for some time, and matters take a serious turn when the local doctor, feeling uneasy about Edwina's sudden and unexpected death, orders an autopsy. The result come back, revealing that Edwina's body is full of arsenic.

BONNIE & CLYDE
|At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, their electrifying story of love, adventure and crime captured the excited attention of an entire country. Now, the most notorious couple of the twentieth century takes on a whole new adventure: the stage.|
When BONNIE AND CLYDE meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run from every southern state’s police force, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.
BONNIE AND CLYDE is a thrilling and sexy musical with a non-traditional score, combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music.

|Set at the outbreak of the Second World War, this is the funny, moving story of the invasion of a Somerset village by child evacuees from London – the Vackees – and their adventures with the (at first) hostile native children. The musical centres around a young London lad, Kip, and follows his first experiences of love and war. With a memorable score by TV and film composer Carl Davis, this evocative musical, with many big production numbers, offers great scope for a large cast.|

Andrew Crocker-Harris is a classics teacher at an English boys' school. After eighteen years of teaching there, today is his last day before moving on to a position at another school.

Millie Crocker-Harris, his wife, is younger and vivacious and quite different from her husband. She no longer loves him but rather loves Frank Hunter, another teacher, yet despite having an affair with him she knows he is not in love with her.
On this last day, one student named Taplow, who does not hate Crocker-Harris but feels sorry for him, gives him a small going-away gift.

Author: Book by Thomas Meehan, Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Martin Charnin. Original production directed by Martin Charnin. Based on "Little Orphan Annie" by permission of the Tribune Media Services Inc.
For this production, we are delighted to welcome back Lucy O'Hare as director and Graham Thomson as Musical Director. Click here for audition details.
|Annie is the lone cheery spirit at the Municipal Orphanage. Eleven years ago her parents left her there until they could afford to reclaim her. Around her neck she wears half a silver locket, longing for the day her parents will present the matching half and take her home. Now she decides it's time to look for them, and she escapes. |
She befriends a mongrel dog and names him Sandy. However, the police pick her up and return her to the care of Miss Hannigan, the tyrannical spinster in charge of the orphanage. Before she can beat Annie, Grace Farrell, secretary to billionaire industrialist Oliver Warbucks, arrives to choose a child to spend Christmas at his home. Miss Hannigan is enraged as Annie is chosen and driven off to Warbucks' Fifth Avenue mansion.
Warbucks arrives and expresses his displeasure that Grace has not chosen a boy. However, Annie wins him over so completely that Warbucks wants to adopt her. Grace returns to the orphanage to inform a very distraught Miss Hannigan of the new developments. As Grace leaves, she bumps into Miss Hannigan's con-artist brother Rooster and his floozy girlfriend Lily. The shady trio reflect on how nice it would be to be on Easy Street like Annie.
Back at the mansion, Warbucks presents Annie with a new locket and tells her that he has arranged for adoption. Annie breaks into tears, explaining the old locket and that she wants to find her real mother and father. Disappointed, Warbucks vows to find them for her. He buys time on the most popular radio show to offer a $50,000 reward to anyone who can prove they are Annie's parents.
That night Ralph and Shirley Mudge arrive at the orphanage claiming to be Annie's parents. Miss Hannigan knows they are fakes but is amazed to discover they are really Rooster and Lily in disguise. She agrees to provide them with convincing background proof in return for a split of the money.
Warbucks takes Annie to meet the President. Upon arrival in Washington they find FDR and his cabinet as depressed as the nation. Annie cheers them up and tells them that everything will be all right tomorrow.
A telegram arrives, advising Warbucks that people are jamming the streets outside his house claiming to be Annie's parents. Returning to New York they find that all are imposters, for none knew of the locket. Alone, Annie and Warbucks joyfully conclude that adoption would be best. At the adoption party the next evening, high spirits are dashed when the Mudges arrive with conclusive evidence that Annie is their daughter. Warbuck tells them that the $50,000 will be ready in the morning and then asks if Annie can spend one more night at his home.
When they leave, Annie rushes up the stairs in tears just as FDR arrives for a surprise visit. Grace vaguely recalls Rooster from the orphanage and relays her suspicions to Warbucks. He asks Roosevelt for help from the FBI. When Annie awakes on Christmas morning, Warbucks is sad to inform her that her parents died many years ago. When the Mudges arrive to collect the money they are unmasked, and they implicate Miss Hannigan. As the police take them away, a large box arrives for Annie. Inside is Sandy. It's the most wonderful Christmas ever - and the beginning of a whole new life.

The Accrington Pals
Author: Peter WhelanAccrington Pals is a warm, unsentimental play based on events in Accrington and at the Front in 1914 - 1916. There is toughness and poignancy but humour shines throughout the play, enabling us to empathise with the characters. It is a chronicle of the terrible waste of war and the tensions of class and ideals between a group of personalities that we come to care about deeply. Much of the action is concentrated on the developing strengths of the women left behind.

Arden of Faversham
|The play depicts the true story of the murder of Thomas Arden by his whife Alice together with her lover, and their subsequent discovery and punishment. The author is unknown, but the play has been attributed to Thomas Kyd, Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare - solely or collaboratively.|
It is about passion, violence, infidelity, predatory capitalism, jealousy and incompetence. If it was written today it could be described as a dramatised documentary. It is certainly a black comedy.
Our version sets the action in the present day as the themes are timeless.
This production has been chosen by The Royal Shakespeare Company as one of their plays in the Open Stages Project.
Arden of Faversham is also entered in the Kent Drama Association Full Length Play Festival 2015.

Don't Dress for Dinner
|Don't Dress for Dinner. It is a two-act play by French playwright Marc Camoletti. The play ran in France and then in London, running there for six years, and then opened on Broadway in 2012.“Don't Dress for Dinner” is a madcap mix of mistaken identities, flimsy lingerie and a million laughs. It's a frenetic case of mistaken identity with more twists than a corkscrew. When Jacqueline decides to visit her mother for a few days, her husband Bernard sees an opportunity for a cozy weekend with his new mistress. His bachelor pal Robert calls to announce his return from Hong Kong, so Bernard invites him along as his alibi, also hiring a Cordon Bleu-level cook to cater a delicious dinner. But when Jacqueline realizes Robert is coming for a visit everything changes, and the high speed farce begins! One impossible situation leads to another as the hapless friend Robert finds himself the target of both amorous attention and wrathful vengeance, while Bernard tries desperately to salvage a scrap of illicit bliss from the wreckage of a weekend. Carol Jewel will be directing this play, which has a cast of six people. |

Author: Jason Robert Brown
|Set in 1913 Parade tells the true life story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, who is put on trial for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker under his employ. Already guilty in the eyes of the community, a sensationalist publisher and a janitor’s false testimony seal Leo’s fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience, and, eventually, his assimilated Southern wife who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion. Parade is however, more than just a murder mystery, a courtroom drama or a love story and has its audience gripped, fraught with tension but also with hope as it builds towards the final climatic scene.|
Daring, innovative and bold, Parade won well-earned Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score in 2000. Its subject matter offers a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.

|He’s The Wiz and he lives in Oz! He’s also the man Dorothy needs to help her get back home to Kansas! But in this modern, urban version of the much-loved ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ by L.Frank Baum, Dorothy’s journey through the surreal Land of Oz to the Emerald City is told through amazing rock, gospel and soul songs and energetic dances. Flying Ducks Youth Theatre are very proud to present this spectacular award-winning musical adventure written by Charlie Smalls and William F.Brown. The Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion all join Dorothy on her quest, and there is still the matter of the Wicked Witch of the West to contend with!|

|“First night in here? Well you’ll get used to us...not going to ask you what you’re doing here, never do, that’s one of our few rules.”|
There’s plenty to keep you entertained in the local pub: a quick game of darts, have a dance to your favourite tune on the jukebox, meet the love of your life in the newly refurbished snug area or maybe just grab a drink at the bar and pull up a stool to watch the local punters as they spend a typical evening in their local boozer.
Two hugely talented performers, playing 14 characters, will take you through a range of human emotions creating a colourful tapestry of life in a working class town. This performance of the award winning script will astound you, make you laugh and you might even shed a tear as each character gives you a fleeting glimpse in to their lives.
This show should not be missed.
