A Christmas Carol

Venue: Halifax Playhouse, 33 King Cross Street, HX1 2SH Halifax, West Yorkshire

Box Office: Available from Halifax Playhouse TicketSource

24th-26th January 2019 7:30pm

There’s something rotten at the heart of a dark city. A malevolent presence that drains the life from all it touches resides within a crooked counting house. The people fear it, as it wrenches, clutches and claws at their very livelihoods.
This presence is a man, a man called Scrooge!
Join Grim North Theatre this festive season and experience their take on the Dickensian classic ‘A Christmas Carol’. Expect sadistic spirits, the worst examples of human nature, and a very merry Christmas.

Open Auditions for our Spring 2019 Play

An amateur drama group is rehearsing in a theatre at the end of a pier. A storm is building up and any thought of leaving the theatre is baulked by finding that somehow all the exit doors are locked from the outside. A ghostly presence flits across the stage and when the assistant stage manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, the players begin to flap. Then one of the actresses is found poisoned, and it becomes clear that a murderer is in their midst . . .

Salisbury Playhouse

The Night Before Christmas A musical by Glyn Kerslake and Gareth Machin

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

10th to 30th December 2018

Venue: The Lamb and Unicorn, 42-44 Gaisford St, London, NW5 2ED

Salisbury Play House’s latest performance in the Salberg Theatre is the festive tale of The Night Before Christmas. The estimated one-hour long play is aimed at preschool-aged children. There was a very keen group present on the day who were getting into the spirit and whole heatedly joining in. Smiles all round too which is a very good sign.

The show has captured the true essence of Christmas and it’s true meaning. That spending time with loved ones and the simpler things are the important aspects. Not the over-commercialisation it has become.

No Christmas show would be complete without letters written to Santa as seen in the photo below. These are magically flown up up the chimney by a little bit of magic, helped on their way by the participation of the audience. We see a family of three preparing their home as they are excitedly anticipating the annual visit from Father Christmas.

The entertaining singing and dancing performance is captured in the two photos below. This kept their younger audience engaged throughout. During one scene there is an opportunity for two of the younger ones to join in the wrapping up with the man in the red suit.

Although it is aimed for the younger members it appealed to the older audience members too who were joining in with the singing and dancing. The stage is simply dressed as can be seen below and the unseen staircase is a clever addition which takes you by surprise.

This is a lovely way to start off your Christmas celebrations. This shorter length of the performance is a great way to introduce smaller children to what is possibly going to be their first theatre visit.

A well earned Four stars

The Pipes, the Pipes

One-act play, situation comedy.

Imagine a World where seemingly innocent occupations have been bomb-dropped into the same category as drug-taking and alcohol abuse. Occupations such as bagpipe playing, for example. Should pipe addict Dan Hunter hide his 'problem', or bow to the wishes of his wife Judith? This is the dilemma facing Dan as he tries to manage his addiction in the face of increasing pressure from Judith, his friends, and society at large - with comical results.

Stage and Screen Production Arts

Introducing Our Stage and Screen Production Extended Diploma Course!

Our new Stage and Screen Production Arts Diploma developed in partnership with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School - part of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama, and one of the leading drama schools in the world, brings a strong new offer for young people in Bristol. There are so many opportunities for well-trained people ‘backstage’ in the arts and entertainment industry and yet so few people are aware of these hidden careers.

boomsatsuma boomsatsuma boomsatsuma boomsatsuma

The course is a full time two year Extended Level 3 Diploma (that’s the equivalent of up to 3 A* A-levels) at the end of which you can choose to progress to university, a drama school technical theatre such as The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School course or you'll be able to go straight into a higher apprenticeship or employment.
On the course you will take units in:
• Lighting design
• Sound design
• Set design
• Lighting and sound technician skills
• Stage and TV floor management
• Event management
• Camera operation
• Film editing
• Music production techniques

Qualification: Stage and Screen Production Arts Extended Diploma
UCAS: Up to 168 points - Equivalent to 3 A levels
Duration: 2 years
Attendance: Full-time

Have you ever thought how great it would be to control the sound desk at Glastonbury, be part of the backstage team on the latest hit musical, or be a camera operator the latest Bond movie? Well those jobs are achievable and your first step should be the new boomsatsuma stage and screen production arts course.

You'll need to be on track to get at least five GCSEs grades A*- C or a BTEC Level 2 Diploma (at merit or distinction). In exceptional cases we can take students who don’t have GCSE English or Maths at grade C or above and we can provide tuition in those qualifications alongside the course. Though experience of dance, drama or expressive arts subjects are advantageous in giving you a sense of what’s involved, we are more interested in raw talent and welcome your application even if you have had little or no experience.


If this sounds like something you would be interested in then get in touch by DM on Facebook and Instagram, or email us at hello@boomsatsuma.com. We would love to hear from you!

Bidborough Dramatic Society


Bidborough Village Hall, Tunbridge Wells

The Bidborough Dramatic Society has been staging plays and musicals in the Village Hall since 1972 and has staged over 90 shows with two main productions each year, normally in April and November. A few shows have been for children but most are for a wider age group. In all of our productions we invite members of Age Concern in Southborough to attend the dress rehearsals, who have been to-date a very appreciative audience. Rehearsals normally take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the Bidborough village hall or school hall.
The society also organises two social events each year, one a summer soirée with entertainment in July and the other a Christmas party, as well as play readings during the year where any member can take part. All this happens because we have members who want to provide entertainment to the local community. We are always seeking new members who may be interested in acting, singing and dancing or helping out in the many tasks involved in back stage, front of house, lighting and sound. No previous experience needed!
Membership costs as little as £7.50 per year (£3.50 for those in full time education) which entitles you to priority booking of our productions at reduced rates. There are currently over 100 members.

Does anybody have multiple copies of Same by Deborah Bruce that they would be willing to sell?
We would like to perform in the Wellington Drama Festival but the cost of purchasing 9 scripts is quite prohibitive as we would not recoup the costs from the performance. Thanks :-)

Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society

Facebook  Twitter  

Press release- ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’

This Christmas Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society are celebrating 50 years of Copythorne pantomimes with a production of ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’. In 1968 the local British Legion put on a panto to raise funds. It proved so popular that it became an annual event. In 1995 CATS was formed to continue the tradition when the Royal British Legion changed their fundraising rules. Over the years, hundreds of local people have been involved with the shows and thousands of pounds have been raised for charity.

This year’s show has been specially written to mark the occasion and includes all the characters you’d expect, plus quite a few that might surprise you, including some panto ghosts.

Robin Hood has returned from the Crusades to find that the people of Nottingham are in desperate need of help. The wicked Sheriff of Nottingham keeps taking their money in taxes and burning down their houses. Things get even worse when Prince John demands even more money and the Sheriff decides to get rid of his two young wards and marry Maid Marian so that he can get his hands on their lands.

Can Robin rescue the Babes and Marian and defeat the Sheriff? Maybe. With the help of his merry men (and women) and, of course, Nurse Nora, the dame, who knows everything there is to know about the soldiers in the castle, including the bungling Private Eye and Private Parts. A true village panto with plenty of songs, swash buckling and audience participation. The show also features dancers from the Jo Hyne School of Dance, who will bring some magic to Sherwood and a bit of Rock n Roll to Nottingham Castle.

Performances are: Saturday 24th November at 7.30
Sunday 25th November at 2.30
Saturday 1st December at 7.30
Sunday 2nd December at 2.30
At Copythorne Parish Hall, Pollards Moor Road, S04 2NZ
Tickets: Adults £8, under 16s £5, Family Ticket (2 adults and 2 children) £22
Available from Bartley Post Office, Landford Stores and Bramshaw Village Stores or by phoning our box office 02380 813415
