Tickets: £11.00


October 2, 3, 4, & 5 2019 7:45pm

The great orchestral conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler had a choice when Hitler came to power in Germany. He could have left and showed his disgust at a violent racist dictatorship. Or he could have stayed to protect the values of German civilisation and help his fellow musicians.
He stayed and conducted for Hitler. Did he do the right thing? Was he just putting his personal ambition above his principles? Should he have left the country and lived as an exile? What would we have done?
The play takes place in the ruins of Berlin after the German defeat. To work again Furtwängler must be investigated by an American de-Nazification tribunal. But this is run by a hard-nosed, hostile US officer who has no interest in music and little sympathy for the great conductor. As the interviews go on, the tension between the two men rises. It is increasingly difficult to know what is right and which side to take.
The powerful and compelling play explores a fascinating and disturbing dilemma that faced creative artists in Nazi Germany. But it raises wider issues – as what point do we say ‘NO’ before it is too late?

Sneaking a peek in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, Bill, and Harry. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when all three turn up, it may not be as clear as she thought!
Told through the legendary music of ABBA, MAMMA MIA! has been seen by over 60 million people around the world and is one of the top 5 highest-grossing Broadway musicals of all time!

Author: Bernard Pomerance

The Elephant Man

UK
Dorset


Venue: Lytchett Matravers Village Hall, High Street, Lytchett Matravers, Poole. BH16 6DD

Box Office: https://www.castleplayers.com/tickets

9th-12th October 2019

The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to the prestigious London Hospital. Under the care of Frederick Treves, a famous young doctor from Dorchester, Merrick changes from an object of pity to the urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy. But his belief that he can be a man like any other is a dream never to be realised.
The year is 1884. In small, dingy, run down shop, Joseph Merrick, hideously disfigured and alone, awaits the arrival of the paying public. They will taunt, deride, threaten and show their fear, loudly and without discretion.
He is found by Frederick Treves, surgeon and lecturer at the London Hospital in Whitechapel. Treves, a native of Dorchester, is intrigued by Merrick’s condition and in the hope of obtaining an indication as to its cause, gives a lecture to the Royal College of Physicians with Merrick once again on show.
This is the start of a professional relationship and a personal friendship between the two men. In many ways Merrick’s life changes for the better. He makes friends with the highest of society. The question is, is he still on show but to a different class of people?
'An enthralling and luminous play. Haunting, splendid...'

WORLD PREMIERE!
You'll laugh!
You'll cry!
You'll even sing along!
In times of war, there are many acts of herosim and bravery and the dark days of World War Two were no different.
Many men and women rose to the challenge of tyranny with great courage and determination, and were consequently decorated, quite rightly by a grateful nation.
This, however is a story about children, who with equal courage and in their own way faced that same challenge. They did not win any medals, they did not need to, for they won the hearts and admiration of everyone who knew them or came into contact with them. This is a story about the very brave, very strong young members of The Blitz Club!

Featuring four well-known local actors at the top of their game and directed by playwright, director and theatre critic Paul T Davies, this story of a dysfunctional relationship between a spinster and her domineering mother will be sure to entertain and shock you in equal measure!
If you've seen 'In Bruges', 'Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri' or the production of 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' you'll know you're in for a treat! Colchester Theatre Group's "Beauty Queen of Leenane" is a DARK comedy! It deals with the trivial day to day life of Mag an old woman and her spinster daughter Maureen. But don’t be deceived! Their story is not as bland as the Complan that Mag is made to take. Their ongoing toxic power struggle has a shocking conclusion.

Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and on the day of his funeral, friends and colleagues gather beside his coffin to pay their last respects. There’s Harvey, who wrote Dave’s material, Harvey’s wife; Kevin, Dave’s agent, and Kevin’s wife Jane. Dave’s glamorous widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with a horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog. An unfamiliar woman in flamboyant mourning clothes turns out to be Kay, Dave’s ex-wife from before he was famous, and a series of revelations end with Kevin throwing a drink into the coffin and all the guests asking themselves if they ever knew the “real” Dave.
Act II opens three weeks later for the disposal of Dave’s ashes. The atmosphere is tense and Kevin is wearing a controversial tie, but as more truths are revealed, even from beyond the crematorium Dave seems to be having the last laugh.……

Cyrano de Bergerac is a play written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand. Although there was a real Cyrano de Bergerac, the play is a fictionalisation following the broad outlines of his life.
Swordsman, Philosopher, Poet, Raconteur Cyrano de Bergerac is all these things, but none of them makes him happy. What he desires above all is the love of the beautiful Roxane. But his problem is as plain as the nose on his face. Surely he is too ugly ever to be loved?
Salvation of a kind arrives in the form of the handsome yet tongue-tied Christian de Neuvillette - might not Cyrano's eloquence and Christian s beauty together win Roxane? Yet duelling foes, powerful rivals, and a war against Spain will all put our hero to the test before he finds his way at last into his lady's arms.

15 Oct – 19 Oct 7:45pm

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a 1979 musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. Many regard it as Sondheim’s masterpiece and this is the first time that BROS has taken it on.
Originally set in Victorian London, it tells the tale of a vengeful barber on the hunt for the crooked Judge who transported him to Australia for a crime he didn’t commit so he could make moves on Sweeney’s wife.
And while it might have been set in the 1850s, the show makes the point that it’s as relevant now as it might have been back then, with hidden Sweeneys walking among us.
So roll up, roll up, and come and taste the best pies in London as we present...Sweeney Todd!

BLOOD WEDDING

UK

Venue: Corn Exchange, Wallingford

Box Office: www.cornexchange.org.uk/book-now/ or 01491 825000

16th - 19th October 2019 7:45pm

THE STORY, on a basic level, tells the true story of a passionate man who cannot let go of his first love, despite the fact that he is now married with a child, and she is on the cusp of marriage to another. Given the entrenched and unforgiving conditions of turn of the century rural Spain, there can be no other outcome but tragedy, and Lorca reveals it to us in true Greek style.
Lorca was a leading member of a group known as the Generation of ‘27, a group of mostly poets who introduced Symbolism, Futurism and Surrealism to Spain. He was also a fervent activist for the Socialists in the Spanish Civil War, for which he was murdered by the Fascists, though Lorca’s sexuality is also believed to have been a factor in his death. His body was buried by his murderers and has never been found.
The play was written, we are told, in a frenzied few days in 1932, and was inspired by a newspaper cutting telling of a runaway bride and a murder in which the murdered and the murderer were cousins. The themes (ties) of family, blood and the soil are central to Lorca’s vision and they are powerfully portrayed in Blood Wedding.

16 Oct – 19 Oct 7:45pm

Just how far would someone go for the advancement of science?
Join us this October and discover what lurks beneath the surface!
An Experiment with An Air Pump is a gripping drama that deals with the ethics of science and women scientists at the turn of two significant centuries.
In 1799 Newcastle Joseph Fenwick, a radical forward-looking physician and scientist carries out experiments while his neglected wife consoles herself with brandy, his twin daughters feud, and one of his two assistants attempts to seduce the deformed maidservant. In the same house in 1999, Ellen, an eminent geneticist, is torn between ethical doubts and the lure of a new job offering a significant and much-needed increase in salary. A gruesome discovery under the kitchen floor adds further complications.
This is a thought-provoking and moving play. It demonstrates the differences in attitude towards ethics, towards women, towards science and towards women in science in two different eras - how much has changed and, sadly, how much hasn’t. The characters are convincing, with their complexities slowly revealed. Having the same actors playing the main roles in both eras underlines the differences and similarities.

When Eric Dawson, a stranger, turns up claiming to have known Richard's second fiancee - a woman Richard claims does not exist - Barbara's health worsens and she isn't the only one. With bad luck spreading almost as quickly as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill Barbara - and anyone else who gets in their way.

It's 1994... one hotel suite, four sparkling comedies
In Settling Accounts, the suite is occupied by an explosively drunk Welsh writer holding his sleazy business manager - caught absconding with his money - at gunpoint.
An American widow and daughter take over the suite in Going Home. At the daughter’s insistence, 'Mother' spends her last evening in London on a disastrous date with a very rich and very strange Scotsman...
Diana & Sidney adds a bittersweet note to the comedy. Oscar-winning actress Diana is reunited with her ex-husband for the first time in years... and Sidney has a secret.
The evening ends in hilarious slapstick fashion: the guests in The Man on the Floor are a married couple who have lost their precious Wimbledon Final tickets and are about to lose their suite to Kevin Costner: the hotel manager is unhelpful, the bellboy is clueless, and a back injury means the eccentric hotel doctor is called for...

Once installed in the convent, Deloris proceeds to upend the quiet lives of the resident sisters. In an effort to keep her out of trouble, the Nuns assign Deloris to direct the convent's choir, an ensemble that she soon turns into a vibrant and soulful act that gains widespread attention, and some unexpected but firm friendships are created along the way.
Sister Act The Musical is based on the 1992 film of the same name starring Whoopi Goldberg, and the musical version came to London's West End in 2009 starring Patina Miller and Sheila Hancock.

New York, 1936. The Footlights Club provides a warm sense of community for the budding female performers who lodge there. Terry Randall is a talented and witty girl from the Midwest who is determined to become a leading stage actress. But, when she’s offered a Hollywood movie contract, will she sell out her love of theatre and head West?
The Broadway life of the Depression Era is all here: the heart-breaking round of auditions and agents – the sudden closing of a show that should have been a meal ticket for months – the opportunistic romances – and the rare breakthroughs to stardom. All punctuated with witty one-liners and smart comments on the uphill struggle that is ‘making it’ in show business.
The women of the Footlights Club know the odds are stacked against them. As Terry says to her egotistical playwright boyfriend: “You don't know what it is to be an actress. You're a writer--if you feel something you can write it. But I can't act unless they let me.”
Historical note: The Footlights Club was based on the Rehearsal Club, a Broadway haven for women performers during the 1930s. It was conceived by the play’s co-author Edna Ferber, whose niece was a struggling actress in New York at the time.

Thornbury Musical Theatre Group are delighted to be performing the circus based musical ‘Barnum’ at the Armstrong Hall in Thornbury from Wednesday 23rd to Saturday 26th October.
We have a fantastic directing team at the helm for this magnificent show, which promises much in the way of stage presentation and skill. Steve Blackmore (Director), has a wealth of experience directing for BMCC, BAOS and his own production company The Worx Productions, Brendan Casey (Musical Director) will be knocking our vocals into shape and Donna Podesta (Choreographer) will be casting her own magic on the company's moves.
Michael Crawford famously played the role of Barnum at the London Palladium and in the film version and we are delighted that Rose Bowl Award-winning actor Simon Vardakis will be more than filling those dancing shoes.
This musical tells the story of Phineas Taylor Barnum the self-proclaimed Greatest Showman on Earth! P T Barnum will never be satisfied unless he is living a life full of colour, fame and fortune. No matter what his wife Charity might say it won’t be easy for Barnum to keep his feet on the ground. This show marries musical theatre and circus to tell the true story of a charming man who wanted to sell his vision to the world. From humble beginnings selling lottery tickets to being one of the world’s most celebrated showmen, courted by Presidents, Kings and Queens and producing such greats as the magnificent Tom Thumb, Jenny Lind and Jumbo the Elephant. A joyful and moving musical portrait of the nineteenth century’s greatest show-biz legend, ‘Barnum’ is a colourful, dynamic spectacle full of circus, side-show legends, toe-tapping songs and immense heart. Come follow the band!

Harvey is a 1944 play by the American playwright Mary Chase. Chase received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the work in 1945. It has been adapted for film and television several times, most notably in a 1950 film starring James Stewart.
Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta Louise, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium. When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues.

The Lyric Players will be getting back in the habit at the Adrian Mann Theatre in Epsom with the uplifting and miraculous musical comedy, Sister Act and we would love to see you there.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent!

Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet, Sister Act was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical and features original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty And The Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors). Together with Glenn Slater’s clever lyrics and a book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner (Cheers) this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music will leave you ready to get down with that Sunday Morning Fever!

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 a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the twentieth century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colourful 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 Sound of Music has a special place in our history. Nottingham Operatic Society last performed Rodgers & Hammerstein’s blockbuster musical in 1970, only three years after the original production starring Jean Bayless and Constance Shacklock had closed in London. We were the first amateur society to stage the show, and we are delighted to bring it back once again to the Theatre Royal in Autumn 2019, to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary.
The Sound of Music remains one of the top three most successful films in history, and could be the world’s most popular musical, translated into dozens of languages, with record-breaking productions still touring across the world.
Telling the uplifting true story of the von Trapp Family Singers, you can enjoy this unforgettable score once again - Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev'ry Mountain, My Favourite Things, Edelweiss and The Sound of Music. This will be the perfect half-term family treat, so be sure to book your seats soon.

Tuesday 29 October~Saturday 2 November & Matinee on Saturday

Our next show will be the fantastic King and I, surely a classic among musical shows.
Set against a dazzling and exotic backdrop in Siam, now Thailand, the King and I is the moving story of Anna, an American governess, who tries to help the king to come to terms with the modern world, but he is unable to resist the forces of ancient customs. The conflict between Eastern and Western cultures inspired this well-loved musical, which has been revived professionally many times and is always a firm favourite with the public. The score includes "I Whistle A Happy Tune", "Hello Young Lovers", "Getting To Know You", "Something Wonderful" and "Shall We Dance?".

31st Oct to 2nd Nov, 7.30pm nightly with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday

This autumn, AmEgos Theatre brings GUYS AND DOLLS to Wantage, Oxfordshire.
Many of you will be familiar with this award winning musical, set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score makes Guys And Dolls a true crowd pleaser.

‘The Elephant Man’ is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, who has been a freak attraction in travelling side shows, is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. Under the care of a famous young doctor who educates him and introduces him to London society, Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realised………..

June 1944. The allied forces stand ready to launch for the Normandy beaches. Eisenhower is under pressure to give the right command. His decision hangs upon the weather. Meteorologist James Stagg is under pressure to produce the perfect forecast. The wrong conditions could jeopardise 350000 lives.
“Pressure” is a gripping new play exploring the little known back-story of D-Day, itself a pivotal point in modern history.

31st October, 1st and 2nd November at 7:45pm

The Coal Hole
London in the late 1940s. Diana Fox, a glamorous and beautiful widow in her fifties, lives in a townhouse overlooking Regent’s Park with Jane, her only child. Jane is 33, single and lonely and spends her life serving her mother’s every whim. She carries a sense of guilt related to the accidental death of her father, for which she feels responsible. Diana’s and Jane’s already brittle domestic relationship is tested by the arrival of a lodger, retired actor and widower, Stratton Doyle.

Curtain Call
Actors take over an abandoned theatre to pay tribute to their friend and brilliant writer who died in a tragic road accident, ten years earlier. Each year on that anniversary they produce one of the writer’s plays in his honour – even though there is never an audience to see it. As the play progresses their various relationships are revealed, as is the driving force behind the annual commemoration. The cast, though, are at a loss to know where one of the actresses has got to, and they search everywhere for her. When she does finally arrive it brings about an unexpected revelation that may well change all of their lives.
