Author: Book and lyrics by Eric Idle Music by John Du Prez & Eric Idle
Wed 29 June - Sat 9 July 2016 at 7.45pm
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.

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?
Join Bath Theatre School this July as they draw you into the heartwarming story of timeless traditions that define faith and family when performing the Tony award winning musical Fiddler on the Roof. The story centres on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family's lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love – each one's choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith. Featuring the classics “To Life,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker” and “Tradition,” Fiddler On the Roof provides an uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life! With critics praising last year’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Techicolor Dreamcoat as a “visual spectacle”, which gave “an excellent opportunity to utilise and showcase their training in a high quality production,” make sure you get your tickets to this uplifting and fascinating show which is suitable for the whole family.

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Author: William Shakespeare Director Sue Baxter
18 – 23 July, 2016
The fantastical world of A Midsummer Night’s Dream invites us to let our imaginations run riot. This year’s spectacular production of one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies does just that, taking us to the grounds of Theseus’ estate, where the mortal and immortal worlds collide. By day a disciplined domain, bound by convention and the established order, when mortal backs are turned the immortals make free – and how! Fascinated by the mortals and their antics, there is always at least one fairy keeping an eye on what is going on, for this is their place, and they were here first. Exotic, colourful, funny and moving, this magical production is inspired by Shakespeare’s changeling child – “A lovely boy, stolen from an Indian king” - and by Hatherop’s own fascinating history. Come and picnic and then enjoy one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays in the ‘spiced air’ of a summer evening in Gloucestershire.

Three sisters meet on the eve of their mother’s funeral in Shelagh Stephenson’s Olivier Award-winning examination of the structures of memory and family. As they attempt to organise her funeral, the memories of their childhood run together and the secrets of their separate lives are revealed.

Guy Jones, a recently widowed law practitioner moves to Wales and joins PALOS, a familiarly organised Operatics society. Guy is a friendly chap whose only character flaw is his inability to say “no”, which stands him in good stead with the show as he is unwittingly elevated to the dizzying heights of the lead role in their next production, A Beggar’s Opera. However, advances from the cast and chorus lead to him forging some slightly more unwelcome relationships which he simply cannot resist. The show has been performed across the country, most recently in the West End with a performance of note from comedian and actor Rob Brydon . The 1989 film adaptation starred Anthony Hopkins, Jeremy Irons, Richard Briers, Lionel Jeffries and Patsy Kensitt. See you at the show!
