The Elephant Man

Author: Bernard Pomerance

The Elephant Man

UK
Dorset


Venue: Lytchett Matravers Village Hall, High Street, Lytchett Matravers, Poole. BH16 6DD

Box Office: https://www.castleplayers.com/tickets

9th-12th October 2019

The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to the prestigious London Hospital. Under the care of Frederick Treves, a famous young doctor from Dorchester, Merrick changes from an object of pity to the urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy. But his belief that he can be a man like any other is a dream never to be realised.
The year is 1884. In small, dingy, run down shop, Joseph Merrick, hideously disfigured and alone, awaits the arrival of the paying public. They will taunt, deride, threaten and show their fear, loudly and without discretion.
He is found by Frederick Treves, surgeon and lecturer at the London Hospital in Whitechapel. Treves, a native of Dorchester, is intrigued by Merrick’s condition and in the hope of obtaining an indication as to its cause, gives a lecture to the Royal College of Physicians with Merrick once again on show.
This is the start of a professional relationship and a personal friendship between the two men. In many ways Merrick’s life changes for the better. He makes friends with the highest of society. The question is, is he still on show but to a different class of people?
'An enthralling and luminous play. Haunting, splendid...'

WORLD PREMIERE!
You'll laugh!
You'll cry!
You'll even sing along!
In times of war, there are many acts of herosim and bravery and the dark days of World War Two were no different.
Many men and women rose to the challenge of tyranny with great courage and determination, and were consequently decorated, quite rightly by a grateful nation.
This, however is a story about children, who with equal courage and in their own way faced that same challenge. They did not win any medals, they did not need to, for they won the hearts and admiration of everyone who knew them or came into contact with them. This is a story about the very brave, very strong young members of The Blitz Club!

Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and on the day of his funeral, friends and colleagues gather beside his coffin to pay their last respects. There’s Harvey, who wrote Dave’s material, Harvey’s wife; Kevin, Dave’s agent, and Kevin’s wife Jane. Dave’s glamorous widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with a horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog. An unfamiliar woman in flamboyant mourning clothes turns out to be Kay, Dave’s ex-wife from before he was famous, and a series of revelations end with Kevin throwing a drink into the coffin and all the guests asking themselves if they ever knew the “real” Dave.
Act II opens three weeks later for the disposal of Dave’s ashes. The atmosphere is tense and Kevin is wearing a controversial tie, but as more truths are revealed, even from beyond the crematorium Dave seems to be having the last laugh.……

Cyrano de Bergerac

UK
Bristol


Venue: The Kelvin Studio Theatre

Box Office: www.kelvinplayers.co.uk/tickets

15-19 October 2019 @ 7:30

Cyrano de Bergerac is a play written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand. Although there was a real Cyrano de Bergerac, the play is a fictionalisation following the broad outlines of his life.
Swordsman, Philosopher, Poet, Raconteur Cyrano de Bergerac is all these things, but none of them makes him happy. What he desires above all is the love of the beautiful Roxane. But his problem is as plain as the nose on his face. Surely he is too ugly ever to be loved?
Salvation of a kind arrives in the form of the handsome yet tongue-tied Christian de Neuvillette - might not Cyrano's eloquence and Christian s beauty together win Roxane? Yet duelling foes, powerful rivals, and a war against Spain will all put our hero to the test before he finds his way at last into his lady's arms.

Box Office: TicketSource

15 Oct – 19 Oct 7:45pm

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a 1979 musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. Many regard it as Sondheim’s masterpiece and this is the first time that BROS has taken it on.
Originally set in Victorian London, it tells the tale of a vengeful barber on the hunt for the crooked Judge who transported him to Australia for a crime he didn’t commit so he could make moves on Sweeney’s wife.
And while it might have been set in the 1850s, the show makes the point that it’s as relevant now as it might have been back then, with hidden Sweeneys walking among us.
So roll up, roll up, and come and taste the best pies in London as we present...Sweeney Todd!

BLOOD WEDDING

BLOOD WEDDING

UK
Berks


Venue: Corn Exchange, Wallingford

Box Office: www.cornexchange.org.uk/book-now/ or 01491 825000

16th - 19th October 2019 7:45pm

THE STORY, on a basic level, tells the true story of a passionate man who cannot let go of his first love, despite the fact that he is now married with a child, and she is on the cusp of marriage to another. Given the entrenched and unforgiving conditions of turn of the century rural Spain, there can be no other outcome but tragedy, and Lorca reveals it to us in true Greek style.
Lorca was a leading member of a group known as the Generation of ‘27, a group of mostly poets who introduced Symbolism, Futurism and Surrealism to Spain. He was also a fervent activist for the Socialists in the Spanish Civil War, for which he was murdered by the Fascists, though Lorca’s sexuality is also believed to have been a factor in his death. His body was buried by his murderers and has never been found.
The play was written, we are told, in a frenzied few days in 1932, and was inspired by a newspaper cutting telling of a runaway bride and a murder in which the murdered and the murderer were cousins. The themes (ties) of family, blood and the soil are central to Lorca’s vision and they are powerfully portrayed in Blood Wedding.

Tickets: £12, £9 concessions on Wednesday and Saturday


Wed 23 to Sat 26 October 2019

Set in the mid-1930s, this witty comedy concerns a group of women who have come to New York City to find work as actors and performers. The play is set in The Footlights Club – a boarding house run by ex-actress Mrs Orcutt.
The Broadway life is all here: the desperate round of auditions and agents; the sudden closing of a show that should have been a meal ticket for months; the opportunistic romances and the emotional breakdowns.
Stage Door has a large cast with a wide range of roles: aspiring actresses – some more talented and dedicated than others; young and not-so-young ‘gentlemen callers’; a movie magnate and an idealistic young playwright who sells out to Hollywood. So there will be opportunities for both members and non members.

Thornbury Musical Theatre Group are delighted to be performing the circus based musical ‘Barnum’ at the Armstrong Hall in Thornbury from Wednesday 23rd to Saturday 26th October.
We have a fantastic directing team at the helm for this magnificent show, which promises much in the way of stage presentation and skill. Steve Blackmore (Director), has a wealth of experience directing for BMCC, BAOS and his own production company The Worx Productions, Brendan Casey (Musical Director) will be knocking our vocals into shape and Donna Podesta (Choreographer) will be casting her own magic on the company's moves.
Michael Crawford famously played the role of Barnum at the London Palladium and in the film version and we are delighted that Rose Bowl Award-winning actor Simon Vardakis will be more than filling those dancing shoes.
This musical tells the story of Phineas Taylor Barnum the self-proclaimed Greatest Showman on Earth! P T Barnum will never be satisfied unless he is living a life full of colour, fame and fortune. No matter what his wife Charity might say it won’t be easy for Barnum to keep his feet on the ground. This show marries musical theatre and circus to tell the true story of a charming man who wanted to sell his vision to the world. From humble beginnings selling lottery tickets to being one of the world’s most celebrated showmen, courted by Presidents, Kings and Queens and producing such greats as the magnificent Tom Thumb, Jenny Lind and Jumbo the Elephant. A joyful and moving musical portrait of the nineteenth century’s greatest show-biz legend, ‘Barnum’ is a colourful, dynamic spectacle full of circus, side-show legends, toe-tapping songs and immense heart. Come follow the band!

The play ‘thrillingly explores the responsibilities of leadership, the challenges of prophecy and the personal toll of taking a stand’.
The Dedham Players were one of the first amatuer groups to be granted the rights to perform this play following the successful UK tour and West End run which ended in late 2018.

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

Set against a dazzling and exotic backdrop in Siam, now Thailand, the King and I is the moving story of Anna, an American governess, who tries to help the king to come to terms with the modern world, but he is unable to resist the forces of ancient customs. 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. The score includes "I Whistle A Happy Tune", "Hello Young Lovers", "Getting To Know You", "Something Wonderful" and "Shall We Dance?".

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.
