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.

UK
Oxfordshire


Venue: King Alfred's Academy Theatre, Portway, Wantage

Box Office: AmEgosTheatre.com

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.

Jekyll & Hyde is pure, pulse-pounding theatre, with a lush, romantic score hailed as a modern classic.

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………..

Our next show will be the fantastic King and I, surely a classic among musical shows.

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.

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.

Based on the classic 1933 movie-musical, 42nd Street is a big, bold Broadway musical that celebrates the stuff that dreams are made of.
It tells the story of an aspiring chorus girl, Peggy Sawyer, who arrives in New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, armed with her tap shoes and big dreams. Peggy’s talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh, who gives her a spot in the chorus of ‘Pretty Lady’, his newest show. ‘Pretty Lady’ stars Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva, who takes an instant dislike to the new girl in the cast. When Dorothy is injured during the show’s previews, ‘Pretty Lady’ looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl, talented enough to lead the show, can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!
42nd Street is set to delight audiences, with its timeless tunes, crowd-pleasing tap dances and classic ‘rags to riches’ story. So, come and meet those dancing feet, as 42nd Street brings to life legendary songs such as We're In The Money, Shuffle Off To Buffalo and Lullaby of Broadway.

1960s Baltimore, Maryland. Quirky, plus-sized, Tracy Turnblad dreams of dancing on The Corny Collins Show. When she gets put in detention with the African-American students in school, they teach her some dance moves, which help her win a spot on Corny’s show. Overnight, Tracy becomes a star. She advocates racial integration despite bullying from the network producer, Velma, and her popular, but vicious, daughter, Amber. Helped by teenage heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (the host of ‘Negro Day’), Tracy succeeds in her mission.
The bright, energetic story of Tracy Turnblad teaches us all to look past the colour of one’s skin and fight for everyone’s equal rights.

WED 06 - SAT 09 NOV 7.30pm

Shropshire Drama Company’s forthcoming production will be Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy Round And Round The Garden at Theatre Severn, which takes place from 06 to 09 November and celebrates a double milestone for the playwright.
Set over a weekend in July, the play centres round Annie who has arranged to go away for a respite break from looking after her bedridden mother. In order to facilitate this her brother Reg and his wife Sarah have agreed to take over the care of their mother during her absence. However, the question that intrigues them is whether she is going away solo or with a companion, possibly the local vet Tom who seems to be a regular caller. Brother-in-law Norman turns up bringing mayhem in his wake, and then later his wife Ruth. Chaos and hilarity ensue as Annie’s plans unravel, resulting in a memorable few days together but for all the wrong reasons!
Commenting on the play, Rosalind Garrard who is directing the play together with Michèle Rowland-Jones, said: '2019 is the year of Sir Alan’s 80th birthday and the 60th anniversary of his first professional production, so we decided to celebrate by staging this play which is one of the three that makes-up his famous Norman Conquests trilogy. Our performance of Bedroom Farce two years ago proved to be a very popular choice with audiences, so we hope this very funny play will have similar appeal. For all who love comedy, this is one not to be missed!'

Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s first great tragedy. It is a play about politics in which the demands of honour, patriotism and friendship are brought into conflict; it is as relevant today as when it was written 420 years ago.
The honourable Brutus must decide whether to join the conspiracy against his friend Julius Caesar. As the political tension escalates, Brutus’ defence of the conspirators is countered by Mark Antony and Rome slides into civil conflict, with Brutus and Cassius on one side and Antony and Octavius Caesar on the other.

A holiday classic from the writer of the musical theatre classic, The Music Man!, and based on the movie of the same name, Miracle on 34th Street features a book and score by none other than Meredith Willson.
Single mother, Doris Walker, doesn't want her six-year-old Susan's head filled with romantic notions. Their neighbour, Fred Gailey, tries to woo Doris by charming Susan and taking her to see Santa Claus at Macy's, where Doris works. Doris is not impressed, but when it turns out that Macy's Santa may, in fact, be the real Kris Kringle, a wave of love spreads across New York City that melts even the most cynical hearts.
Filled with humour, spectacle and such loved songs as "Pinecones and Holly berries," "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" and "My State, My Kansas," this joyous, heart-warming musical is pure family entertainment, wholesome without being cloying. A star-vehicle for a female actress that features great roles for children, the show is a cast- and crowd-pleaser. With its built-in audience base, Miracle on 34th Street the Musical is the perfect holiday treat for any theatre!

After an apocalyptic event the once powerful and important (or so he believes) Hamm, is left blind and wheelchair bound, looked after by his servant Clov, who both adores him and hates him.
They share their small refuge with Nagg and Nell, Hamms elderly, and (literally) legless parents.
These desperate characters live out the last days of mankind, unwilling to give up, but with no reason to keep going.
The play was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in London, opening on 3rd April 1957. The follow-up to Waiting for Godot, it is commonly considered to be among Beckett's best works.

19th - 24th Nov 2019

Based on the original 1967 film, with lyrics by Mel Brooks and music by Mel Brooks, arranged by Glen Kelly and Doug Besterman, the smash hit stage version of THE PRODUCERS has won a whole collection of awards including a record-breaking 12 Tonys. Those of you who are familiar with Mel Brook's work will know that you're in for an enormous amount of fun and laughter!
It is 1959 and Max Bialystock, once the toast of Broadway, is now a washed-up has-been who spends his time romancing wealthy old ladies to finance a series of second-rate theatre shows. A chance encounter with an accountant, Leo Bloom, starts the idea of making more money from a theatrical flop than a hit. Leo is a nervous man prone to hysterics, but he lays out a plan for Bialystock to produce the worst musical EVER on Broadway! They plan to get finance from Max's 'ladies' to give them enough money to stage the show and when it flops on the first night, they will take off to Rio to live the good life!
Having found the worst story, Springtime for Hitler, written by deranged ex-Nazi Franz Liebkind as a loving tribute to Franz's hero Adolf Elizabeth Hitler, the show will be so inappropriate, it will close down instantly! Max and Leo hire a second-rate, cross-dressing producer Roger de Bris to direct the show, which unexpectedly becomes a hit with the audience who find it fabulous and hilariously funny! It's a hit - just what they didn't want!
THE PRODUCERS is packed with brilliant musical numbers such as The King of Broadway, I Wanna Be a Producer, Der Guten Tag Hop-Clop, Keep it Gay, When You've Got It Flaunt It, Along Came Bialy, That Face, and of course Springtime for Hitler.
Come along and enjoy this off-the-wall, clever, crazy, fabulous musical spectacular - it's guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat with laughter!
To quote Mel Brooks himself: "You don't want to miss it. The best laugh you'll have in ages! Only Mel Brooks could have written this show. It's wonderful!"
THE PRODUCERS will be a first for St. Augustine's MTC - some come and join in the antics and fun!

It Runs in the Family

UK
Manchester


Venue: Woodford Community Centre, Chester Road, Woodford, Stockport. SK7 1PS

Box Office: TicketSource

20th – 23rd November 2019

‘It Runs In The Family’ is a Farce by Ray Cooney, the award winning Master of this genre. The play is set in the Doctors’ Common Room of a large hospital where, as in all the best farces, mayhem reigns and the laughter begins.
Dr Mortimore is preparing to deliver a career-defining lecture in an international conference, which requires careful preparation and precise rehearsal. His rehearsals are immediately disrupted by the sudden appearance of an estranged lover complete with “baggage”! Various Christmas arrangements, a Policeman, a difficult matron and a touch of cross-dressing added to an assortment of nutcases running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else makes for a great evening’s entertainment with laughter all round.

“My glasses steamed up with laughter…A must for the bruised in spirit and the young at heart.” – The Sunday Times

“Tickles the funny bones quite shamelessly.” – Sunday Express, London
“As in every good farce from Ben Travers to Joe Orton, the location becomes a madhouse filled with an epidemic of unbridled lunacy.” – London Financial Times

In a small, gloomy pub in Oldham in the mid-60’s, Harry wade is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day that they abolished the death penalty?
Amongst the journalists, motley crew of pub regulars, and his enervating former deputy Sid, all eager to hear his reaction to the news, a peculiarly menacing young stranger lurks with a very different motive for his visit…
A Viciously, black comedy from the write of ‘The Lieutenant of Inishmaan’, and ‘Cripple of an Irishman’, Martin McDonagh’s play won both the 2016 Olivier and Critics’ Circle Awards for ‘Best New Play’. Gallows humour at his best!
“Gripping, funny and dramatically tense, Hangmen is a thoroughly great play, riveting from start to finish. Almost every line is laugh-out loud funny, and filed with dramatic tension” – The Sunday Times
Please note : This play contains strong language and is not suitable for young children.

Oxfordshire


Venue: The Mill Arts Centre, Spiceball Park Rd, Banbury OX16 5QE

Box Office: www.themillartscentre.co.uk
Tickets from £13.50


Wednesday 20 - 23 Nov 2019 7:30pm

Ruth Ellis was the last woman to be hanged in Britain in 1955 after being convicted of shooting her lover, David Blakely. The Thrill of Love dramatises this true story, taking a closer look at the women behind the headlines.
A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there’s more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Ruth meets wealthy, womanising David – a racing driver – with whom she becomes obsessed. She also begins seeing Desmond Cussen, a man driven mad with jealousy by her tempestuous and often violent relationship with David.
Whittington’s play focuses on Ruth’s interior life, as well as her friendship with three women all working the club scene: the dependable club owner, Sylvia, aspiring actor and model, Vickie and charwoman, Doris. These friends provide comfort to her as she battles abusive lovers and a rabid press.
Detective Jack Gale follows her story from the beginning, hoping to piece together her motive for murdering David and, more importantly, whom she might be protecting.

Poor Bella, she is not well and she knows it. After all, her mother went mad and died in a lunatic asylum when she was Bella’s age.

When former Police Detective Rough arrives, investigating a 20 year old unsolved murder, things get more sinister.
This Victorian Psychological thriller is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat from the opening sequence to the final curtain.

'The Flint Street Nativity', a hilarious comedy by 'Calendar Girls' and 'Neville's Island' playwright, Tim Firth, and to be directed by David Thompson, after his successful CADS directorial debut with 'The Accrington Pals'.
Mizzis Horrocks' class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads - and the occasional social worker. Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles he's not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won't stop waving to his mum and dad and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script. And then the stick insect escapes...
The children are played by adults, who later play their parents so the set changes to reflect the difference in scale. This warm, witty play is an ideal alternative to the usual Christmas fare with original lyrics set to the tunes of Christmas carols.

In a small bar called The Weir in a rural town in Ireland, three local men are settling down for the night, enjoying good beer and company. Their normal routine is shaken up when their friend Finland enters the bar and introduces them to Valerie, an attractive woman from Dublin who has just moved into an old haunted house in the town. As the night (and the amount of liquor) progresses, each local from the bar starts to tell a tale of ghostly happenings in the town to impress her. What starts as innocent braggadocio between the men turns into a real fright when Valerie reveals a real, haunted tale of her own from the past. Examining chances of missed opportunity and the loneliness that results in it, The Weir is a haunting play with its roots in Irish folklore.

Meanwhile, the high seas are terrorised by the evil Captain Blacktashe in his search for the lost temple of treasure on Skull Island but the map where X marks the spot has been lost for years… Will Robinson ever find his treasure? Will Dame Crusoe end up battered? And what is that mysterious writing on the back of the chip shop menu?
We are pleased to welcome lots of new faces to the stage who are eager to make their debut, helped along by our usual pantomime actors. It’s all good family entertainment with an opportunity to join in and sing along, or even to come on stage and show us how it should be done!

We are always looking for new members and now could not be a better time to join us. Come and be a villager on stage or help back stage moving scenery, painting and building. You don’t have to be experienced in any of the tasks - just enthusiastic! Give me a ring if you are interested - Christine 0116 237 6855.
