The Government Inspector
THU 2 - SAT 4 JUNE 7:30pm | Saturday matinee 2:30pm
In Gogol's classic 1836 comedy, Hlestakov, a minor St Petersburg clerk defined by his intemperate greed, is mistaken for the imminently due government inspector. The townspeople discover their mistake too late. The Government Inspector ridicules the extensive bureaucracy of the Russian government under the tsar as a thoroughly corrupt system. Universal themes of human corruption and the folly of self-deception are explored through this drama of Russian life. "If your face is crooked, don't blame the mirror."

Friday 3 June and Saturday 4 June 2016
NOSTALGIC CONCERT - ‘ON AIR AGAIN!’ Come along and be part of the studio audience at Thornbury's ‘Television Centre’ for a trip down memory lane or to gain an insight into yesteryear.
On 3rd and 4th June (including a matinée) the Thornbury Musical Theatre Group will be bringing the home-produced concert ‘On Air Again!’ to the Armstrong Hall in Thornbury BS35 2BJ. Like its prequel ‘On Air’ in 2005 in which the world of radio was explored, the sequel ‘On Air Again!’ is a concert which explores the world of television and brings to the stage the sight and sound of television, from the 30 lines of John Logie Baird through to the high definition of the modern era. The journey will include some great popular songs across the decades from the 1920s to the present day, songs associated with the all-time great television performers, popular hits synonymous with programmes like Top of the Pops, and so much more. This variety entertainment will appeal to mixed age groups and tastes in entertainment. Like its prequel, the box office is likely to be very busy for ‘On Air Again!’, so don’t delay in booking a seat. There will be only three performances - on Friday 3rd June at 7.30 pm and on Saturday 4th June at 2.30 pm and 7.30 pm. For more information about ‘On Air Again!’ and our group generally, take a look at www.tmtg.org.uk or contact us by e-mail at email@example.com. You can also follow us on Facebook.
Author: A Classic Comedy with a Twist by Neil Simon
6th – 11th June 2016
Neurotic, neat freak Florence Unger leaves her husband and moves in with friend Olive Madison, a slovenly sports-writer. Despite Olive's problems – careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food – she seems to enjoy life. Florence, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out her own, and other people's, mistakes and foibles. Florence may seem suicidal, but Olive is the one with murder on her mind. Wildly, irresistibly and unremittingly funny, this classic comedy from one of the best comedy writers to date, still feels fresh and original.

The Resurrection!! After last year’s unfortunate cancellation we cant wait to finally bring this fantastic show to the stage. Revellers are finally off to Craggy Island in June next year as we bring much-loved sitcom Father Ted to the stage. The sitcom gave us some of the best comedy characters ever – the well-intentioned but occasionally amoral priest, Father Ted; his impossibly dense sidekick and priest-in-training, Dougal; the constant pestering of his house maid, Mrs Doyle; and the verbally abusive alcoholic, Father Jack. Throw into the mix an explosive Bishop whose only goal is to be finally rid of the whole bunch and you have a perfect comedy mix!
Sondheim created a stunning tour de force by taking Ingmar Bergman's comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, and turning it into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Described as "a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre" Set in Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt. This musical theatre smorgasbord is packed full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire.

Jack the Ripper doesn't immediately make you think of music and comedy, but what better way to lighten the subject! In actual fact, the show follows those living in the East End and their speculation around who the Ripper could be, so not too much gore! The show is full of catchy tunes and humour, and slips in and out of a music hall setting which again helps to tell the narrative of the story and lighten the subject matter.

What is Urinetown – The Musical? Don’t be put off by the title. It’s twisted, it’s dark, and it’s hilarious!
Winner of three TONY Awards, Urinetown is a tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. A musical satire set in a fictional future where a terrible drought has crippled the city. Water is so scarce that the government enforces a ban on all private toilets in an effort to control water. The citizens must now use pay-per-use toilets owned and operated by a corrupt corporation. Those who try to dodge the fee risk being taken away to “Urinetown”, a mysterious place where many have been sent but no one ever returns. The oppressed masses rise up under the leadership of Bobby Strong, a hero who decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Will they win? The only way to find out is to see Urinetown – The Musical. Urinetown started a trend of ironic, self-aware, breaking the fourth wall shows that spawned the likes of The Producers and Book of Mormon. Combining social themes that are relevant to today’s climates with an outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and the magic of musical theatre the show produces gales of unbridled laughter. Urinetown is unique, it’s everything a musical should be and somehow more. Its clever lyrics, brilliant script and captivating score were praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be. It is hilariously funny and touchingly honest. Providing a fresh perspective on ‘the musical’ it parodies everything from the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics, climate change to musical theatre itself!

Confirmed bachelor Malcolm and his recently separated friend Clive bite the bullet and attend a Singles' Evening in the bar at The Royal Hotel. Clive, a hospital porter, is masquerading as a doctor while Malcolm is “big in imports” – really a market stall trader. In the deserted hotel bar, to the depressing soundtrack of the next-door ballroom, they meet two recent divorcees: upwardly-mobile Julie and cynical, defiant Liz. Malcolm is determined to break down Liz’s defences while trying to pair Clive off with Julie.

John, a charismatic witty politician, and Brian, a bluff no nonsense chairman from the school of hard knocks and the university of life, seem set to be the Green Party's new leadership dream team. But fate intervenes and both must rethink. In this fast-paced novel comedy our attitudes to perception and appearance are held up for scrutiny in a most surprising way.

The other one act play is a comedy by David Tristram and it’s called “Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish”. For Henry Smith life was rarely dull. For Alice Smith life was rarely anything else. Enter Michel – French waiter – tall, dark, and available. Exactly what happened next, no-one’s quite sure … Our monologue is the Alan Bennett classic “A Cream Cracker Under The Settee”. This was first performed by the wonderful Dame Thora Hird in 1987. A poignant piece full of pathos and humour in equal measure which never fails to strike a chord somewhere in your soul. Tickets will be on sale in the Spring.

The Shakespeare Revue
PLAYERS SET FOR BRUSH WITH THE BARD!
A Bridgnorth amateur theatre company is set to take a light-hearted look at Shakespeare in its forthcoming production. Bridgnorth Players will be staging The Shakespeare Revue, originally performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company, at different local venues during June and July. The group have adapted the series of sketches and songs to provide an irreverent take on the work of the great playwright. “The Shakespeare Revue is a glorious cocktail of comedy and chaos!”, says production co-director Liz Fisher. “Some sketches are loosely based on excerpts from Shakespeare plays, others are the work of some wonderful contemporary writers such as Victoria Wood, Dudley Moore, Dillie Keane and Bernard Levin. The music is based on songs by Cole Porter and Ned Sherrin and the audience are invited to sing along – and take part in a Shakespeare quiz.” “Our company of actors and backstage team have worked very hard to produce what we hope will be a truly riotous production”, adds fellow co-director Liz Herdson. “We are always so well supported by local audiences and we look forward to inviting them all to ‘Brush up Your Shakespeare!”

A new musical lovingly ripped off from the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail" from the original screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin.
Spamalot is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score for the new production, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez. Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader’s Digest Poll 2010 - before it went bust), Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.
