AVENUE Q THE MUSICAL

AVENUE Q THE MUSICAL

UK
Cheshire


Venue: Hyde Festival Theatre, Hyde

Box Office: TicketSource

Tue 2 - Sat 6 Apr 2019, 7:30PM

Following five years in the West End, sell-out runs worldwide and smash hit tours in the UK in 2014, 2015 and 2016 (packed with mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness!), the irresistible Tony Award winning musical created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, co creators of Book of Mormon The Musical and writer of the songs from Disney's Frozen, is the irresistibly charming tale of the loveable characters of a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life's burning issues.
Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account; Brian, the out of work comedian and his therapist fiancee, Christmas Eve; Nicky, the good hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod; internet 'sexpert' Trekkie Monster; Lucy the Slut (the name says it all!) and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster.
Featuring hysterical songs including 'The Internet is for Porn' and 'Everyone's A Little Bit Racist', Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart. Hilarious, cheeky and uproariously entertaining, Avenue Q is a musical like no other.

Sat Mat 2:30pm

Another premiere for Solihull as Peterbrook Players (who produced the hilarious Spamalot in 2018 and Singin' In The Rain in 2017) celebrate 50 years of Musical Theatre with their Spring production.
Legally blonde is a high energy, roller coaster of a musical, based on the hit film, written by Lawrence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin.
Elle Woods is dumped by her boyfriend as she is considered "too Marilyn" for him, as he leaves for Harvard Law School. So she sets out to win him back and prove him wrong by getting enrolled too. Along the way she is laughed at, degraded and told she is not good enough, but with her dog bruiser, her sorority friends from Delta Nu and some new friends like Paulette the Hairdresser by her side, she achieves what she had always been told was impossible and much, much more.
Hilariously funny, sassy and dramatic in equal parts this modern classic musical is suitable for all ages and features a great moral story about standing up for what is right and believing in yourself.

Murder in the Studio

Author: Agatha ChristieDirected by Ivan Moody & Lyn Baynham

This is a new venture for the Cuffley Players as (for the first time) we are performing 3 Radio Plays by Agatha Christie. The set is a 1950's BBC Studio and the audience get to watch the cast recording the plays in all their finery (the cast not the audience). In addition we will have an onstage sound person who will create the majority of the sound effects live.
We are very excited about bringing Agatha Christie back to the Cuffley stage. As some of you may know Murder in the Studio was previously Murder on Air when the Agatha Christie Theatre Company toured with it 4 or 5 years ago. It has only recently been licensed for amateur companies and the Cuffley Players will be one of the first to stage it.

The evening will consist of three Radio Plays, Personal Call, Yellow Iris and Butter in a Lordly Dish. They are all different and Yellow Iris is (I believe) the first story Agatha Christie wrote with Hercule Poirot as the lead character. David Suchet was unavailable but our very own Andrew Kent is returning to the stage to perform this challenging role.

A BLACK COMEDY ABOUT LIFE, DEATH & NOT COPING VERY WELL WITH EITHER
Join us this April for the first production of our 70th year -
Laura Wade's beautifully poised intimate family drama Colder Than Here. First performed at the Soho Theatre, London, in 2005, Wade’s original and beautifully observed play balances raw emotion with a deliciously delicate black humour.
Nobody can ignore the fact that Myra is dying, but in the meantime, life goes on. There are boilers to be fixed, cats to be fed and the perfect funeral to be planned. As a mother researches burial spots and biodegradable coffins, her family are finally forced to communicate with her, and each other, as they face up to an unpredictable future.

A double-bill of one-act plays about life, love and relationships

GHOST STORY by Mark Ravenhill - directed by Troy Chessman
A satirical look at 'positive thinking', exploring issues ranging from faith healing to women's relationships, poignantly depicting the lies and half-truths we tell ourselves and each other. Director Troy Chessman: “The power lies in the dialogue: the script allows three actresses wonderfully poignant and powerful moments.”

AND TELL SAD STORIES OF THE DEATHS OF QUEENS by Tennessee Williams - directed by Paul Cresser
A tragicomic melodrama by famed US playwright Tennessee Williams, Candy Delaney is a successful interior decorator in steamy New Orleans: a drag queen approaching her 35th birthday, and on the rebound from a 17-year relationship.

Evening 7.30pm, Saturday matinee 2.30pm

Mention "Fame" to anyone and they are bound to think of the exuberant Oscar-winning title song with its high energy chorus." Fame the Musical" is the stage show full of more of the same breathtaking singing and dazzling dancing.
Ultimately a bittersweet but inspiring story of a diverse group of classmates, we follow them in their pursuit of fame through four years of gruelling artistic and academic work at New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s. With honesty and humour the show confronts issues that still face teenagers today - from encountering prejudice, struggling with illiteracy or substance abuse, to more universal themes such as growing up, dedication and determination to succeed.

Gloucestershire


Venue: Sundial Theatre, Stroud Road, GL7 1XA Cirencester

Box Office: TicketSource

10 Apr – 12 Apr 7:30pm

Adapted by Alan Acykbourn, Tons of Money is one of the famous Aldwych Farces, and has all the ingredients for a classic farce – a convoluted plot, mistaken identity, and everyone madly overacting!
An unsuccessful, debt-ridden inventor, Aubrey Allington, and his wife Louise, are presented with a solution to all of their money troubles.
Quickly realising that the money would go no further than to simply pay off their existing debt, the couple hatch a plan to avoid this, a faultless plot so long as definitely dead cousin George does not show up to claim his stake in the money.
With high-speed action, many twists and turns, and a frantic pace you will love this side-splitting, rolling in your seat, riotous comedy.
Produced by Cirencester Theatre Company who brought you the highly successful Brassed Off in 2018

Venue: The Kelvin Studio Theatre

23-27 April 2019 @7:30

Road is the first play written by Jim Cartwright, and was first produced in 1986.
The play explores the lives of the people in a deprived, working class area of Lancashire during the government of Margaret Thatcher, a time of high unemployment in the north of England. Despite its explicit nature, it was considered extremely effective in portraying the desperation of people's lives at this time, as well as containing a great deal of humour. The play won a number of awards and was voted the 36th best play of the 20th century in a poll by the Royal National Theatre. Set on a road on a busy night, the audience delve into the houses on the street and the characters lives.

Step aboard the SS AMERICAN in the 1930s bound for England. Everyone is on board including Billy – who shouldn't be!

Unfortunately not as may celebrities are making the journey as usual – but Reno Sweeney, famed Evangelist turned nightclub singer is, with her four beautiful Angels. And the reason Billy stayed on board after dropping his boss off? Hope – the girl he met and fell in love with the other evening. Unfortunately for Billy, Hope's overbearing mother and her English fiancée Sir Evelyn Oakleigh are also on board.

How is Billy going to make Hope (and more to the point Hope's mother) see that he is the one she has to marry... and how is he going to so it without being caught as a stowaway? You may well ask... but it has something to do with two Chinese converts, the 13th most wanted man in America and a rice field!

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

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!!
