The Architect is disarming, funny and true, and dances nimbly around sentiment for so long, it feels more akin to the unlikeliest sort of romantic comedy than an end-of-life drama. When John is heading overseas to indulge his passion for historical re-enactments of famous medieval battles, he decides to employ a carer for his partner, Helen, who is ill. Initially Helen is appalled by the idea and only agrees by choosing the least likely candidate; a dubious young drifter and jack-of-all-trades. Lennie seems to be a fish out of water but nevertheless makes himself right at home. A touching rapport develops between him and Helen, delicate and spontaneous, gentle but unflinchingly honest.

A tragedy of passion and beauty, Miss Saigon is one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. Nominated for an incredible number of Olivier, Tony and Drama Desk Awards, Miss Saigon is the second massively successful offering from the creators of Les Misérables, Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, Chris, an American soldier, and Kim, a Vietnamese girl, fall in love and marry but are distressingly separated when Saigon falls. As years pass, Chris, unable to contact Kim, remarries and attempts to move on with his life. Kim, however, gives birth to Chris’ son and waits faithfully for Chris’ return. When circumstances bring Chris back to Vietnam, he learns the truth.. Miss Saigon is an epic, daring musical that is universal in its emotional power. The sung-through, pop-inflected score gives a multi-ethnic cast of strong singers ample opportunities to shine. Meanwhile, its fluid cinematic structure gives directors and designers a field day.

Our mid year production in July 2021 will be The Addams Family. Based on the TV show of the same name, this production moved ahead on time where the children are young adults' though the family is still as dysfunctional as ever. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents. It features the much loved off-beat family: Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Wednesday, Pugsley, Grandmama and Lurch, and introduces the “normal” Beineke family of Lucas, Wednesday’s love interest, and his parents Mal and Alice. The chorus of Addams “Ancestors” over the ages is kept busy throughout.
In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus Lippa, Brickman, and Elice’s musical: the Addams kids are growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change

For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs... who just happened to be there too. This clever and inventive play gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers. Their heartfelt and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. Please note that there are TWO versions of this show: - Thursday & Friday performances are recommended ages 15+. They contain adult themes and strong language. - Saturday performances are recommended for Young Wizards aged 8+. Contains some adult themes, but young wizards will not learn any unforgivable curse words.

The Fabulous 40’s and 50’s is a musical snapshot of these twenty years seen through the eyes of two people who lived through them. It is an uplifting and nostalgic look at the music which brought people close together when dancing in the 40’s and began to slowly separate them when introduced to “rock-&-roll” in the 50’s.
