Tuesday 30th April - Saturday 4th May 2019 7:30pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm

The plot of Spamalot is almost exactly the same as the movie; King Arthur along with his squire, Patsy and a selection of knights go on an epic quest to find the Holy Grail, amongst them are Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot, and Sir Galahad. On their quest they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, a castle full of farting Frenchmen, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight, a killer rabbit and the Knights who say Ni.
Spamalot is jam packed with silly songs to match the action such as “I Am Not Dead Yet,” “The Song that Goes Like This,” and “The Diva’s Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part.” The show also includes the song originally made famous by Monty Python in The Life of Brian, “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” which is always a crowd pleaser!
Spamalot is an evening of all singing, all dancing silliness set in the time of King Arthur and Camelot. You can be sure it’ll be a ‘Knight’ to remember!!

Curtain up at 19.45.

At the very start, let me say that we both have something in common. You don’t know what I’m going to say… and neither do I !
A blend of commedia dell’arte and British farce, ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ is a knockabout comedy set in swingin’ 1963 Brighton, as one man tries to serve, and hoodwink, two employers at the same time.
Throw in a sweet and beautiful, but dimwitted, young woman, a vain actor – is there any other kind? – a woman disguised as her murdered twin brother, a crooked lawyer, and a couple of low-level hoodlums, and it’s almost more than one man can govern.
Music, drama and total mayhem.
Contains occasional bad language.

Tiptoe Through the Tombstones

Tiptoe Through the Tombstones

Author: by Norman Robbins

Welcome to Monument House, ancestral seat of the Tomb family, professional assassins through the centuries. Mortimer Crayle, a crusty old lawyer, and his secretary Zoe, have gathered the last of the family (an outlandish bunch) to inform them about their inheritance. As fog descends on the gloomy mansion, in the cobwebby corridors things - and people - are seldom what they seem. With poison in every decanter and mysterious disappearances into secret passageways, there is an increasing number of bodies in the cellar.

Who is enemies with whom? Who wants who dead? And just who is Vesta? Join us for a good laugh while trying to work out who will kill who next - and why.

The Mount Home for Retired Theatricals is an unusual place - more like a country house hotel than a home for the elderly. As some of the residents say ... " Waited on hand and foot - no meals to prepare - beds made - heaven!" and the manageress positively encourages residents to carry on working as long as they can.
So when Walter Neville (small-part veteran of 212 films) arrives, he is overhoyed to find some of his best friends in residence. All is well until the serial womaniser, Edmund Sullivan, ex-husband of threeof the residents goes missing - apparently on the run from Russian gangsters. The ladies decide that "He who pays the bills" must be rescued - but how to go about it?
What follows is a truly daft journey into the world of eccentric luvvies!

16th to 18th May 2019 7:45pm

Meet Eugene Jerome and his family, fighting the hard times and sometimes each other – with laughter, tears, and love.
It’s 1937 in Brighton Beach, New York, during the heart of the Depression where fifteen-year-old Eugene lives with his family. He is witty, perceptive, obsessed with sex, and forever fantasising about his baseball triumphs as star player for the New York Yankees.
As our guide through his “memoirs”, Eugene takes us through a series of trenchant observations and insights that show his family meeting life’s challenges with pride, spirit, and a marvelous sense of humour. As his father says, “If you didn't have a problem, you wouldn’t be living here.”
But, as World War II looms ever closer, Eugene sees his own innocence slipping away as the first important era of his life ends – and a new one begins.

22nd - 25th May 2019

Based on the 2010 film of the same name and featuring a rousing score with emotionally uplifting songs, Made in Dagenham is drawn from the real-life 1968 sewing machinists strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex. This strike was influential in the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970. The musical focuses on the leader of the strike, Rita O’Grady, as she encourages the women of the Ford factory to walk out after they are re-classified as unskilled workers, while their male counterparts see their wages increase.
After Rita is patronised and snubbed by the factory at a union meeting, the women’s grievances over their worker status turn into a fight for equal pay. Determined not to be treated like the poor relation, the women vote unanimously to strike (“Everybody Out”) and encourage the women at the Liverpool factory to strike also. However when the American bosses fly in and lay off 5,000 men as a result, including Rita’s husband Eddie, cracks begin to show in the women’s solidarity. Risking her marriage and friendships, Rita continues her efforts for equality and gives a rousing speech at a televised Trade Union Conference (“Stand Up”), leading to the passing of equal pay within the union. As Eddie finally recognizes his wife’s achievements, the women celebrate their life-changing success.

Evita is one of the most celebrated musicals of all time.

Winning 7 Tony Awards in its first year on Broadway, the show features songs including “A New Argentina”, “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, “High Flying Adored” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”.
Epic in its scope, ambition and stature, Evita was a ground-breaking musical when it made its debut in 1978. In the intervening years it has lost none of its power to move audiences and sweep them up into the whirlwind life and extraordinary story of one of the most charismatic figures of the late 20th Century.

Plaza Suite will be familiar to many of you who will have enjoyed the classic 1971 comedy film of the same name starring Walter Matthau, which was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture.
The play is composed of three acts, each involving different characters, but all set in Suite 719 of New York City's Plaza Hotel.

The first act, 'Visitor from Mamaroneck', directed by Dee MacColl, introduces the audience to not-so-blissfully wedded couple Sam and Karen Nash (played by David Robertson and Julie Gorman), who are revisiting their honeymoon suite in an attempt by Karen to bring the love back into their marriage. But her plan backfires as the two become embroiled in a heated argument about whether or not Sam is having an affair with his secretary, Jean (played by Dee MacColl).
The second act, 'Visitor from Hollywood', directed by Walter Findlay, involves a meeting between Hollywood movie producer Jesse Kiplinger (played by Jim Goldie) and his old high school girlfriend, suburban housewife, Muriel Tate (played by Laura Mundell). Muriel – well aware of Jesse’s reputation as a smooth-talking ladies' man - has come for nothing more than a chat between old friends, promising herself she will not stay too long. Jesse, however, has other plans in mind and repeatedly attempts to re-ignite the old flame.RThe third act, 'Visitor from Forest Hills', directed by Paul Glasswell, introduces the audience to married couple Roy and Norma Hubley (played by Walter Findlay and Nancy McPherson) on their daughter Mimsey's wedding day. In a rush of nervousness, Mimsey has locked herself in the bathroom and is refusing to leave. There are laughs aplenty, with increasingly outrageous slapstick moments, as her frantic parents attempt to cajole their daughter into attending her own wedding while the gathered guests await the trio's arrival downstairs.
Smaller parts in the play are played by four brand new members of SDG, all of whom joined the group earlier this year - Matthew Montgomerie, Mags McDowall, Kirsty Carson and Adam Rattray.
A licensed bar of wine will be on sale from 7.00pm and during the two intervals. You can find out more about the play, and see some photos of the cast, by following our Facebook Page

After rescuing Cosette, the small daughter of a woman forced into poverty, from near-slavery, and escaping re-arrest by Javert, he reaches Paris. Years later, grown into a beautiful young woman, Cosette falls in love with a student and revolutionary, Marius. But their marriage is forbidden by Marius's aunt, on the eve of 1832 revolution. The revolution is brutally quelled, and Marius is rescued by Jean Valjean. Javert, who had been taken captive by the revolutionaries, is released by Valjean, but unable to comprehend this kind behaviour from someone who he viewed as evil, Javert takes his own life. Marius and Cosette are finally given permission to marry, and Valjean gives them a diary telling his life story....
