Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he'd come to the mountain kingdom of Lancre for a simple little religious ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches. Lancre’s newest residents are a thoroughly modern, sophisticated vampire family. They've got style and fancy waistcoats. They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future. But they haven’t met the neighbours yet: between them and Lancre stand the witches – young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything, Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg, who is far too knowing... and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble. Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but wishes he had an axe.

ALARMS AND EXCURSIONS
Friday 5th August and Saturday 6th August at 7.30pm
KATS are currently rehearsing for the following ‘playlets’ entitled ALARMS AND EXCURSIONS Four old friends sit down for a quiet evening together. But they are harassed by various bells, sirens, buzzers, warblers, beepers and cheepers, all trying to warn them of something. What are these electronic voices so urgently trying to tell them? Can they understand the mysterious messages before disaster strikes? It’s a race against time — because there are seven more plays and twenty more characters still to come before the evening is through, plus a lot more strange noises — and increasingly desperate calls from eleven separate pay-phones...

Author: Richard Green
We are taking this play to the Edinburgh Fringe but are previewing it in Bloxwich and Moseley.
R.I.P. Mr Shakespeare is a mad, fun-packed cavalcade of colour and characters quoting “Shakespeare” as never before. With a nod to Reduced Shakespeare and Horrible Histories and presented by a company of clowns, this award-winning show will keep you laughing but also make you realise you know more Shakespeare than you think.
Over twenty plays are intertwined amid the modern text, eclectic music and ever-changing presentation. Its 23rd April 2016 - Shakespeare is on his deathbed but his dreams turn to nightmares as the clowns unravel a real comedy of errors. Hand in Hand Theatre’s multi-award winning show is to be performed for one last time at St George’s Hall Concert Room on 11th August at 7.30pm Having won the Merseyside, North West and Northern Regional rounds of the All England Theatre Festival collecting an assortment of trophies, they performed at the Grand Final in Maidenhead where they won another for “exceptional creativity”. Having wowed audiences on Wirral the ensemble are delighted to perform in Liverpool’s prestigious venue as the highlight to complete their journey. This production is also part of RSC Openstages and Hand in Hand also performed last year at Stratford upon Avon with an extract from their acclaimed version of The Winter’s Tale and previously in 2012 with a modern sequel to A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

THE PLAY THAT IS OSCAR WILDE AKA THE LIFE OF OSCAR WILDE
MON 15 AUG to WED 17 AUG
What is your view of Oscar Wilde? This new play is about the life of this brilliant but flawed man. He had taken the western world by storm by the age of 30.
He knew all about PR long before the expression was invented. He was an ‘A class’ celebrity by 1884. SUCH OUTRAGEOUS LUCK AND UNIMAGINABLE SUCCESS !
Then, just a few years later… the Courts, prison, ignominy. exile in France. SUCH UNBELIEVABLE TRAGEDY AND FALL FROM GRACE !
With James Holdsworth’s talented direction the play has some surreal aspects. Yet it nevertheless strives to be loyal to the history.
The play forwards the notion that Oscar Wilde was always an actor on a stage wherever he happened to be at the time. He was the real author and producer of this play (rather than Roger Clark), the director of it (rather than James Holdsworth) and a key member of the audience (in addition to you) of THE PLAY THAT IS OSCAR WILDE. So he has to be in every part of it, and he has to miss nothing. So he definitely would not wish to miss his own court cases – he is the leading man in this play after all and these are key scenes in the drama that is his life. He just HAS to be in them. He wanted to experience everything to do with himself. He did just that, and paid dearly for it.
He was the recipient of so many awards and accolades. FAME ! At his downfall, these meant nothing… instead, it meant: SHAME !
It’s a roller coaster ride which you will enjoy alongside a talented and versatile cast playing multi-roles. Join us in this ride. There may be a little audience participation at key points from volunteers among those sitting in the auditorium … to compose the Court jury, persons in the public gallery, rowdy students and miners in the theatres he actually addressed.
Come and experience the grand rise and fall, the roller coaster ride that is THE PLAY THAT IS OSCAR WILDE aka THE LIFE OF OSCAR WILDE. We look forward to joining you in this amazing ride.
Box Office: Tickets will be available at Grandad Jim’s Traditional Sweet Shop on Chapel Brow in Leyland PR25 3NH, or on line from TicketSource. £7 Concessions £5

17 - 20 August 7:30pm
Blithe Spirit is a comic play by Noël Coward. The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost. The play was first seen in the West End in 1941, creating a new long-run record for non-musical British plays of 1,997 performances. It also did well on Broadway later that year, running for 657 performances. Coward adapted the play for film in 1945, starring Rex Harrison, and directed a musical adaptation, High Spirits, on Broadway in 1964. It was also adapted for television in the 1950s and 1960s and for radio. The play enjoyed several West End and Broadway revivals in the 1970s and 1980s and was revived more recently in London in 2004, 2011 and 2014.

Thursday 18th – Saturday 20th August 2016 at 8.00pm
On a park bench in Central Park, you can meet anyone. Here two strangers meet and strike up a familiar conversation, familiar, at least to Penderton. Finally he recognizes his new bench mate, Jackie Jack, the Sturgeon King -- a character in an unfinished play Penderton had penned years ago. Jackie Jack pleads his case for a second act, a completed life, as he offers examples of too many other characters in unfinished or discarded plays, who are wandering around waiting for their second acts.
