Merrily We Roll Along

Author: Stephen Sondheim

Merrily We Roll Along

UK
Cambridgeshire


Venue: ROBINSON THEATRE, HILLS RD, CAMBRIDGE

Box Office: TicketSource
Tickets: £12/£9 + booking fee


7 – 11 JANUARY 2020

We are very excited that our first show in 2020 is the wonderful Stephen Sondheim/George Furth musical ‘Merrily We Roll Along’. With the same creative team that brought you the hugely successful and acclaimed 2018 production of ‘Company’ – Cat Nicol directing and Ana Sanderson as MD. Plus David Mallabone as choreographer. Sondheim’s mastery of emotional observation is again to the fore in this tale of three friends and how their relationship evolves. Or, one should say, un-evolves – as the time-line is reversed . We start in 1976 and the scenes move back in tim to end in 1957, in an attempt to answer the question – how did we get to there from here? The messy, complex lives of songwriter-turned-Hollywood-producer Frank, lyricist Charley and theatre critic Mary are revealed though some incredible music and lyrics of poignancy, sharpness, truth, and warm intelligence. Everything you’d expect from Sondheim & Furth’s ever-so-slightly autobiographical gem.

Cheshire


Venue: Stockport Garrick Theatre, Stockport

Box Office: https://stockportgarrick.co.uk/whats-on/productions/the-children-studio

7-11 JANUARY 2020, 7.30PM

The Children is a new, thought-provoking play set in the near future.
Robin and Hazel are retired nuclear engineers living near the plant where they used to work. The plant has suffered a meltdown. Then their ex-colleague Rose turns up from America unexpectedly. Secrets of their collective pasts come out and they discuss what might have been. Rose then reveals the real, frightening, reason behind her visit.
The Children not only paints a picture of a world where a human-made environmental catastrophe could all too easily happen, it also explores the personal responsibilities people feel when things go wrong – and what they decide to do to make amends.
The Children was recently nominated as one of the top three “Best Theatre Shows of the 21st Century” by The Guardian newspaper.
(This play contains strong language and deals with adult themes)

Venue: The Barn Theatre, Southwick Community Centre, Southwick

Box Office: 01273 597094 or https://sa1.seatadvisor.com/

January 8, 9, 10, & 11 2020

From TV’s Dead of Night series –
It’s never absolutley dark, is it? There’s no such thing as absolute darkness ..?
Dan and Margaret have come to spend Christmas with Rachel and Edmund in their renovated seventeenth century cottage in beautiful countryside.
As Rachel plays the piano, she suddenly gets a sinister feeling of déjà vu … shortly afterwards the electricity fails and the phone is out of order … it is the start of a series of macabre events which mount relentlessly to a bizarre and terrifying climax.
This classic ghost story set in 1972, when exorcism had more general meanings, is about a centuries old injustice, exorcised by long silent spirits and the four unfortunate people who are .. drawn .. unwillingly .. in ..
Don Taylor’s play is perhaps best known for being the first in the Dead of Night TV series, broadcast on BBC in November of 1972; Mr Taylor directed the TV adaptation.

Box Office: 01206 366000

15 Jan 2020 – 18 Jan 2020 7:45pm
Sat Mat 2:30pm

For its first production of 2020, Colchester Theatre Group takes two contrasting one act plays and puts them in the hands of two relatively new directors to the Colchester theatre scene – with the excellent acting talents of energetic and youthful casts combined with CTG’s long pedigree of high quality production, these exciting comic plays will make for a perfect evening out to brighten up a dark January evening!

Numbers by Kieron Barry:
A brutal and hilarious comedy, billed as Mean Girls meets Lord of the Flies and declared one of the greatest plays of all time for women in Lucy Kerbel’s volume “100 Great Plays For Women”. A vicious battle of wills breaks out between four sixth formers at an all-girls boarding school the hour before a new Head Girl is announced. As the girls vie for the coveted position, old friendships and loyalties give way to ambition and betrayal. ‘Clever, fast-paced, witty and caustic ... well-crafted and wonderfully funny’ (Time Out)

Our Little Secret by Rollin Jewett:
A comic drama and award winner in the 2016 Helen Jean Playwriting Contest. A lonely young lady is enjoying a peaceful night in her condo in Miami when she is surprised by an armed intruder breaking into her home on the run from the police. As pressure builds she finds out that the outlaw is not what he seems and as their relationship builds she must make a decision whether to help him ... or turn him in. ‘This play will delightfully surprise any audience by pleasantly tricking them into accepting an incredible, but ultimately entertaining premise’

The True Story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the Worst Singer in the World – but she simply didn't realise it.
In 1940s New York, she was the performer who everyone wanted to see live even though her pitch was far from perfect! Known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale', she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who fell about with laughter. But this joyously happy woman was determined to show her passionate love for classical music - whatever the cost.
This is a delightful, blissfully funny play; surprisingly touching - yet comically sublime.
A glittering comedy with a big heart. One not to be missed!

Venue: Chapel Playhouse, Eccles Road, Chapel-en-le-Frith, High Peak

Evening performances 7.30pm 17th, 18th and 24th, 25th January.
Matinees 2pm - 18th, 19th and 25th January

This year, the group takes you back to magical and mysterious times. “Puss in Boots”, written by Graham Barraclough, is a vim and vigour version of Charles Perrault's famous fairy story.
When young Jasper (Charlotte Jodrell), a poor miller’s son, finds he has only one possession, an enchanted, clever, chatty cat, his future seems uncertain. But his feline friend isn’t one for pussyfooting around. This slyboots comes up with a plan to make his master a man of means. However, the best laid plans of cats and men often go awry, especially when the main obstacle is a witch (Helen Bates) with a terrifying band of trolls and an ogre (Dan Mason) for a brother!

'Fickle thing, memory', Malcolm discovers how true his words are when he takes his friend Clive to a singles’ evening. Clive, a hospital porter masquerading as a doctor, has just been left by his wife, while Malcolm is a confirmed bachelor and 'big in imports' - really a market stall trader.
In the deserted hotel bar, to the depressing soundtrack of the next-door ballroom, they meet two recent divorcees; upwardly-mobile Julie and cynical, defiant Liz.
Malcolm soon finds that life, like the evening, is full of surprises.

28 JAN – 1 FEB 2020

CTC are thrilled to bring Mack & Mabel to Loughborough Town Hall. A glamorous and dazzling musical comedy, Mack & Mabel is both a poignant love story and a riveting tribute to the grit and glamour of the era of silent movies.
Not long ago, and without saying a word, a group of pioneering film-makers changed the world. Helped by heroes in capes, pies in the face, and girls tied to the tracks, they made stars out of street kids, and riches from rags.
Based on the real-life romance between legendary filmmaker Mack Sennett and his beautiful, talented rising star Mabel Normand, Mack and Mabel captures the excitement of Hollywood’s golden age, the fun and action of the silent screen, the hysterical madcap chaos of Fatty Arbuckle and the Keystone Kops, and the glamour of the bathing beauties.
Mack & Mabel received eight Tony Award nominations when it originally opened on Broadway. Featuring music and lyrics by the great Jerry Herman (Hello, Dolly!, La Cage Aux Folles, Mame) and a book by Michael Stewart (42nd Street, Barnum), Mack & Mabel is packed full of Broadway hits, including; I Won’t Send Roses, Tap Your Troubles Away, Time Heals Everything and Movies Were Movies.
Featuring a hugely talented cast, a stunning orchestra, breathtaking costumes and sets, and fabulous choreography, this is a fantastic opportunity to see CTC’s brand new production of one of the all-time great musicals, book now to avoid disappointment!

A group of three couples, old friends and all married on the same day in the same chapel, gather at the Helliwells’ home to celebrate their silver anniversary. When they discover that may not be legally married, each couple initially reacts with proper Victorian horror – what will the neighbours think? – and all three couples find themselves re-evaluating their marriages; hovering closely over the proceedings is the Yorkshire Argus' alcohol-soaked photographer, keen to record the evening's events for posterity, and a wickedly destructive housekeeper who is hoping to use the couples' mortification to her own advantage.
