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.

UK
Oxfordshire


Venue: King Alfred's Academy Theatre, Portway, Wantage

Box Office: AmEgosTheatre.com

31st Oct to 2nd Nov, 7.30pm nightly with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday

This autumn, AmEgos Theatre brings GUYS AND DOLLS to Wantage, Oxfordshire.
Many of you will be familiar with this award winning musical, set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score makes Guys And Dolls a true crowd pleaser.

An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create an evil and murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th-century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
Jekyll & Hyde is pure, pulse-pounding theatre, with a lush, romantic score hailed as a modern classic.
Recommended age 12+
This is an amateur production by arrangement with Music Theatre International.
Please note on Thursday 31st Oct there will be a BSL interpreted performance.

Under the care of a famous young doctor who educates him and introduces him to London society, Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realised………..

Venue: Daneside Theatre, Park Rd. Congleton, CW12 1DU

Tuesday 29 October~Saturday 2 November & Matinee on Saturday

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?".

31st October, 1st and 2nd November at 7:45pm

The Coal Hole
London in the late 1940s. Diana Fox, a glamorous and beautiful widow in her fifties, lives in a townhouse overlooking Regent’s Park with Jane, her only child. Jane is 33, single and lonely and spends her life serving her mother’s every whim. She carries a sense of guilt related to the accidental death of her father, for which she feels responsible. Diana’s and Jane’s already brittle domestic relationship is tested by the arrival of a lodger, retired actor and widower, Stratton Doyle.

Curtain Call
Actors take over an abandoned theatre to pay tribute to their friend and brilliant writer who died in a tragic road accident, ten years earlier. Each year on that anniversary they produce one of the writer’s plays in his honour – even though there is never an audience to see it. As the play progresses their various relationships are revealed, as is the driving force behind the annual commemoration. The cast, though, are at a loss to know where one of the actresses has got to, and they search everywhere for her. When she does finally arrive it brings about an unexpected revelation that may well change all of their lives.

A Comedy In Two Acts
Somewhere near the coast in Britain is a Naval Intelligence Cold War Bunker, manned by four naval personnel nearing retirement. Only, as far as the Royal Navy is concerned, the bunker was decommissioned in 1991 and the staff were made redundant.
But somehow they all slipped through the net and continued to receive monthly pay cheques from the Ministry of Defence computer system.
Peter decides to bring a friend in to bring all the equipment up to full working order.
Imagine the alarm at Naval Headquarters when they start getting distress signals from a defunct bunker.
Time to panic! With hilarious consequences...

Based on the classic 1933 movie-musical, 42nd Street is a big, bold Broadway musical that celebrates the stuff that dreams are made of.
It tells the story of an aspiring chorus girl, Peggy Sawyer, who arrives in New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, armed with her tap shoes and big dreams. Peggy’s talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh, who gives her a spot in the chorus of ‘Pretty Lady’, his newest show. ‘Pretty Lady’ stars Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva, who takes an instant dislike to the new girl in the cast. When Dorothy is injured during the show’s previews, ‘Pretty Lady’ looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl, talented enough to lead the show, can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!
42nd Street is set to delight audiences, with its timeless tunes, crowd-pleasing tap dances and classic ‘rags to riches’ story. So, come and meet those dancing feet, as 42nd Street brings to life legendary songs such as We're In The Money, Shuffle Off To Buffalo and Lullaby of Broadway.

1960s Baltimore, Maryland. Quirky, plus-sized, Tracy Turnblad dreams of dancing on The Corny Collins Show. When she gets put in detention with the African-American students in school, they teach her some dance moves, which help her win a spot on Corny’s show. Overnight, Tracy becomes a star. She advocates racial integration despite bullying from the network producer, Velma, and her popular, but vicious, daughter, Amber. Helped by teenage heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (the host of ‘Negro Day’), Tracy succeeds in her mission.
The bright, energetic story of Tracy Turnblad teaches us all to look past the colour of one’s skin and fight for everyone’s equal rights.

Tickets: £16.50


WED 06 - SAT 09 NOV 7.30pm

Shropshire Drama Company’s forthcoming production will be Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy Round And Round The Garden at Theatre Severn, which takes place from 06 to 09 November and celebrates a double milestone for the playwright.
Set over a weekend in July, the play centres round Annie who has arranged to go away for a respite break from looking after her bedridden mother. In order to facilitate this her brother Reg and his wife Sarah have agreed to take over the care of their mother during her absence. However, the question that intrigues them is whether she is going away solo or with a companion, possibly the local vet Tom who seems to be a regular caller. Brother-in-law Norman turns up bringing mayhem in his wake, and then later his wife Ruth. Chaos and hilarity ensue as Annie’s plans unravel, resulting in a memorable few days together but for all the wrong reasons!
Commenting on the play, Rosalind Garrard who is directing the play together with Michèle Rowland-Jones, said: '2019 is the year of Sir Alan’s 80th birthday and the 60th anniversary of his first professional production, so we decided to celebrate by staging this play which is one of the three that makes-up his famous Norman Conquests trilogy. Our performance of Bedroom Farce two years ago proved to be a very popular choice with audiences, so we hope this very funny play will have similar appeal. For all who love comedy, this is one not to be missed!'

'Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes. It’s awful!'
These lines from Samuel Beckett’s absurdist play Waiting for Godot were quickly taken up by outraged critics. When the play was first performed in Paris in 1953 it was derided. However, in the intervening half-century Godot has taken on iconic status as the play which redefined modern theatre.
Two tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, pass their days waiting for the mysterious Godot who promises to improve and explain their lives. On a bare stage featuring just a tree and a mound our two protagonists grapple with their lot and with human existence, waiting each day for their salvation to come.
Common Ground Theatre Company has been performing in Lincoln for almost two decades. They bring this timeless masterpiece to the intimate stage in The Room Upstairs.

Venue: Craanford Community Centre, Craanford, Co. Wexford

Box Office: Tickets are available on the door or booking through www.gr8events.ie
Ticket Price: Adults €10 (including booking fee), Children €5 (including booking fee)


Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th, Thursday 14th, Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th of November @8pm

Cupid Wore Skirts revolves around Andrew Coulter, a widower who lives with his elderly father and teenage son Brian. Andrew attempts to find a wife to win a bet with his sister-in-law, Harriet Courtney, a spinster with whom he has never got on well. His married daughter Daphne suggests he advertises for a wife but he finds that the respondents are not quite what he imagined. Three women accept Andrew’s ‘proposal’, leading to complete mayhem.
As the scenes unfold the audience meet Ingrid Hansen, a young Swedish girl who replies to Brian’s advertisement for a singer for his band, only to find herself mistaken for a respondent to Andy’s advert; Gladys Gilmore, in search of a fourth husband to be a father to her latest baby and Isobel Stansfield, a prim and proper spinster who changes completely after drinking too much dandelion wine. To help solve Andy’s problem, Brian Coulter’s friend Ronnie is roped in to give the impression that Andy is more interested in men than women.
As you can imagine all this confusion is a recipe for a fun filled night’s entertainment that will leave the the audience rolling in the aisles.

Venue: The Place Theatre, Bedford, MK40 3DE Bedford

Box Office: theplacebedford.ticketsolve.com

12 Nov – 15 Nov 7:30pm

Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s first great tragedy. It is a play about politics in which the demands of honour, patriotism and friendship are brought into conflict; it is as relevant today as when it was written 420 years ago.
The honourable Brutus must decide whether to join the conspiracy against his friend Julius Caesar. As the political tension escalates, Brutus’ defence of the conspirators is countered by Mark Antony and Rome slides into civil conflict, with Brutus and Cassius on one side and Antony and Octavius Caesar on the other.

Venue: The Old Court Theatre 233 Springfield Road, CM2 6JT Chelmsford, Essex

Box Office: https://www.chelmsford.gov.uk/theatres
Tickets: £12.00
Concession: £10.00 (except Friday and Saturday)


12 Nov – 16 Nov 7:45pm

Upon her second husband’s death, domineering matriarch Bernarda Alba imposes an eight-year mourning period on her household in accordance with her family tradition. Bernarda has five daughters, aged between 20 and 39, whom she has controlled inexorably and prohibited from any form of relationship.
Lorca’s seminal play was completed barely two months before he was assassinated in a fascist uprising, leading to the Spanish Civil War in 1936. The play has endured, with many productions finding the relationship between the domineering Bernarda Alba and her daughters fertile ground for bringing forward difficult truths centred around repression and the danger of an unremitting patriarchal influence on personal liberty and choice. As a gay man, Lorca was mercilessly persecuted with regard to his own sexuality. This play, part of his “rural trilogy”, preceded by Blood Wedding and Yerma, poses unrelenting questions about how, even in death, men exert their influence on women and society.
The production uses the translation by Jo Clifford, and features original guitar music composed and performed by a CTW member.

Venue: Sheffield University’s Drama Studio on Glossop Road

Box Office: Tickets are £11 (£9 for concessions), and can be purchased in advance at http://bit.ly/AWONISUDS or reserved by phone (0114 255 3417) and by email (suds.tickets@gmail.com)

November 13-16th Doors at 7 pm

Oscar Wilde's most fascinating play arrives at the Drama Studio in November, directed by Ian Gledhill. His long-time production manager collaborator, Lynda Liddament, also appears in the play as Lady Hunstanton. The pair first performed Wilde together in The Importance of Being Earnest in 1989 - thirty years ago exactly!
The play sparkles with all the customary wit the writer is known and loved for. However, beneath his jokes, Wilde was making a critical observation on upper class morality and society’s double standards for women - unwed mothers in particular - and men in the Victorian Era. RFirst performed in 1893, A Woman of No Importance follows bachelor and insatiable flirt, Lord Illingworth (Dave Herbert), who is widely admired for his wit. When he offers Gerald Arbuthnot (Nick Lewis) a once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity, it sets in motion a chain of events that sets Illingworth against Gerald’s mother (Martha Greengrass).
Also performing are Caroline Denby-Hollis, Mollie Kerrigan, Ian Brownlee, Anthea Sutton, Lottie Creasey, Andy Challis, Nigel Harper, David Walker, Fred Hawkins, Raman Maiti, Kathryn Williams, Lesley Cottingham and Lucy Jepson. Music is by Society rising star James Peacock.

After an apocalyptic event the once powerful and important (or so he believes) Hamm, is left blind and wheelchair bound, looked after by his servant Clov, who both adores him and hates him.
They share their small refuge with Nagg and Nell, Hamms elderly, and (literally) legless parents.
These desperate characters live out the last days of mankind, unwilling to give up, but with no reason to keep going.
The play was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in London, opening on 3rd April 1957. The follow-up to Waiting for Godot, it is commonly considered to be among Beckett's best works.

19th - 24th Nov 2019

Based on the original 1967 film, with lyrics by Mel Brooks and music by Mel Brooks, arranged by Glen Kelly and Doug Besterman, the smash hit stage version of THE PRODUCERS has won a whole collection of awards including a record-breaking 12 Tonys. Those of you who are familiar with Mel Brook's work will know that you're in for an enormous amount of fun and laughter!
It is 1959 and Max Bialystock, once the toast of Broadway, is now a washed-up has-been who spends his time romancing wealthy old ladies to finance a series of second-rate theatre shows. A chance encounter with an accountant, Leo Bloom, starts the idea of making more money from a theatrical flop than a hit. Leo is a nervous man prone to hysterics, but he lays out a plan for Bialystock to produce the worst musical EVER on Broadway! They plan to get finance from Max's 'ladies' to give them enough money to stage the show and when it flops on the first night, they will take off to Rio to live the good life!
Having found the worst story, Springtime for Hitler, written by deranged ex-Nazi Franz Liebkind as a loving tribute to Franz's hero Adolf Elizabeth Hitler, the show will be so inappropriate, it will close down instantly! Max and Leo hire a second-rate, cross-dressing producer Roger de Bris to direct the show, which unexpectedly becomes a hit with the audience who find it fabulous and hilariously funny! It's a hit - just what they didn't want!
THE PRODUCERS is packed with brilliant musical numbers such as The King of Broadway, I Wanna Be a Producer, Der Guten Tag Hop-Clop, Keep it Gay, When You've Got It Flaunt It, Along Came Bialy, That Face, and of course Springtime for Hitler.
Come along and enjoy this off-the-wall, clever, crazy, fabulous musical spectacular - it's guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat with laughter!
To quote Mel Brooks himself: "You don't want to miss it. The best laugh you'll have in ages! Only Mel Brooks could have written this show. It's wonderful!"
THE PRODUCERS will be a first for St. Augustine's MTC - some come and join in the antics and fun!

This is an iconic Rock Opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and lyrics by Tim Rice. Rock n' roll and gospel songs are coupled with high energy dance numbers to tell the story of the last days of Jesus’s life.
Imagine a crowded rock concert: people are cheering, lights are flashing, music is blaring and there, in the middle of the stage, is Jesus. Yep. That Jesus. The New Testament, the Messiah. Jesus Christ is not generally the central figure we expect in a rock show, but that's exactly what makes the musical Jesus Christ Superstar so entertaining.
The story unfolds through the words of Judas Iscariot, the disciple who ultimately betrays Jesus. This electrifying theatrical story promises a fantastic evening’s entertainment.

Box Office: TicketSource

20th – 23rd November 2019

‘It Runs In The Family’ is a Farce by Ray Cooney, the award winning Master of this genre. The play is set in the Doctors’ Common Room of a large hospital where, as in all the best farces, mayhem reigns and the laughter begins.
Dr Mortimore is preparing to deliver a career-defining lecture in an international conference, which requires careful preparation and precise rehearsal. His rehearsals are immediately disrupted by the sudden appearance of an estranged lover complete with “baggage”! Various Christmas arrangements, a Policeman, a difficult matron and a touch of cross-dressing added to an assortment of nutcases running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else makes for a great evening’s entertainment with laughter all round.

“My glasses steamed up with laughter…A must for the bruised in spirit and the young at heart.” – The Sunday Times

“Tickles the funny bones quite shamelessly.” – Sunday Express, London
“As in every good farce from Ben Travers to Joe Orton, the location becomes a madhouse filled with an epidemic of unbridled lunacy.” – London Financial Times

In a small, gloomy pub in Oldham in the mid-60’s, Harry wade is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day that they abolished the death penalty?
Amongst the journalists, motley crew of pub regulars, and his enervating former deputy Sid, all eager to hear his reaction to the news, a peculiarly menacing young stranger lurks with a very different motive for his visit…
A Viciously, black comedy from the write of ‘The Lieutenant of Inishmaan’, and ‘Cripple of an Irishman’, Martin McDonagh’s play won both the 2016 Olivier and Critics’ Circle Awards for ‘Best New Play’. Gallows humour at his best!
“Gripping, funny and dramatically tense, Hangmen is a thoroughly great play, riveting from start to finish. Almost every line is laugh-out loud funny, and filed with dramatic tension” – The Sunday Times

Poor Bella, she is not well and she knows it. After all, her mother went mad and died in a lunatic asylum when she was Bella’s age. Her loving husband, Jack is doing his best to care for her, which can be pretty demanding at times. However, all is not what it seems in the Manningham household. When former Police Detective Rough arrives, investigating a 20 year old unsolved murder, things get more sinister.
This Victorian Psychological thriller is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat from the opening sequence to the final curtain. It’s because of this play and subsequent movie that the term “Gaslighting”, has established itself in the Oxford English Dictionary, bearing the definition, “To manipulate (someone) by psychological means into doubting their own sanity”.
Sligo Drama Circle guarantees you a nail biting evening of drama!

The antics at the Wicksteed home are a satirical merry-go-round. Family, friends and the sexual satisfaction of the “corpus” (body) are the ruling passions in this farcical comedy of ill-manners. Through a dance of mistaken identities and carnal encounters, one motto holds fast: “He whose lust lasts, lasts longest.”

20th – 23rd November 2019

After our success back in 2014 CADS are proud to be doing three more hilarious episodes of The Vicar of Dibley, based on the popular TV series written by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer and supporting COMIC RELIEF
Autumn
Alice and Hugo return from their honeymoon and Alice reveals she's been putting on weight at an alarming speed as well as throwing up every morning! Baby Horton is on the way and everyone is thrilled, except father in law David Horton. Meanwhile Geraldine begins seeing David’s handsome brother Simon. Will this finally be her happy ever after? Probably not!
The Christmas Lunch Special
Geraldine is so popular in the village, this year she has been inundated with several tempting offers of Christmas lunch; None of which she can refuse without grossly offending someone. Reluctantly, she agrees to go to all three: a very filling Christmas lunch with David and Hugo; a traditional Dibley serving with Jim and Frank; and a bizarre meal with Alice, her mum and sister. Geraldine politely eats her way through some very big Christmas dinners in order to be nice to her parishioners, before Owen surprises her with a fourth!
Winter
For Christmas, Geraldine wishes to put on a Nativity play for the Church. Her bungling parishioners are no help – David is sure that Herod is not as terrible as the Bible makes out and Owen wants to play the king…the ‘King of Rock and Roll’ Elvis! Poor Alice is desperate to play Mary, as she is also heavily pregnant, however no one expects her to actually give birth during the play! The only question in Alice’s mind though is has she actually given birth to the son of God?
The Vicar played by Dawn Dodwell and Verger Alice Tinker played by Amy Whistance, Richard Mayes plays David Horton the father of Hugo played by Chad Dent .Then we have two best friends “No no no no yes” Jim Trott and Frank Pickle played by Jack Grainger and Richard Corrado. Owen Newitt, the famer who has more than a few tricks up his sleeve’s played by Ryan Corry. Laura Simpson plays the parts of Mary Tinker, Alice’s even stranger sister, and Aoife and Tammy Steventon plays Mrs Tinker.
For this play we also have three new male members; Simon Jerrison who will be playing Simon Horton, David Horton’s better looking brother and love interest for the Vicar, Chad Williams-Allen is playing Tristan Campbell, and Jacob Melia playing the Boy - our youngest member at 16.

Alone, except for her butler Max, faded movie star Norma Desmond resides in her mansion on Sunset Boulevard. She lives in her own fantasy world of when she used to be a silent-screen goddess, when she used to be 'big'.
Down on his luck screen writer Joe Gillis comes across Norma’s mansion by chance, while trying to evade debt collectors, and gets drawn into her reclusive world. Joe is persuaded to work on a script that Norma believes will put her back where she was born to be – in front of the cameras – and very soon he is seduced by her lifestyle. It’s not long until Joe feels trapped and can see no way out – that is until he finds love in the arms of Betty Schaefer. Joe finds the courage to leave Norma but it comes with deathly consequences.
Winner of seven Tony Awards, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s score is nothing short of a masterpiece with Don Black and Christopher Hampton’s wonderful book and lyrics.

THURSDAY 21st – SATURDAY 23rd NOVEMBER 7.30pm
SATURDAY MATINEE 2.30pm

'The Flint Street Nativity', a hilarious comedy by 'Calendar Girls' and 'Neville's Island' playwright, Tim Firth, and to be directed by David Thompson, after his successful CADS directorial debut with 'The Accrington Pals'.
Mizzis Horrocks' class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads - and the occasional social worker. Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles he's not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won't stop waving to his mum and dad and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script. And then the stick insect escapes...
The children are played by adults, who later play their parents so the set changes to reflect the difference in scale. This warm, witty play is an ideal alternative to the usual Christmas fare with original lyrics set to the tunes of Christmas carols.

Songs For A New World

Directed by Lindsay Scott-Jones, Musical Direction & Design by Richard Andrew-Gregg

Songs For A New World

UK
Kent


Venue: The Guild Theatre, Gravesend

Box Office: TicketSource

Thu 21 - 23 Nov 2019, 7:30PM

Songs for a New World is a concept musical that explores the struggles and challenges we encounter in life and how our own coping mechanisms enable us to reach for the hope on the horizon. Like the explorers and immigrants who arrived in the New World of America, we all journey through life searching for a place where we can finally be free, successful, happy and fulfilled; in this production of Jason Robert Brown's song cycle, that literal journey acts as a metaphor for the journey we all make internally, asking us how we feel, how we cope and ultimately if we will be fine.
Moving, challenging, funny, gut-wrenching but in the end filled with the promise of hope, this production is for anyone who has lived! Join us on this journey of song through what it means to be human; join Liam as he feels the responsibility and pressure of work, Kat as she suffers the insecurity in her love life, Nat as she weighs up the true value of her possessions or Coralie as her cheating husband pushes her to the edge - literally.
It's about one moment
The moment before it all becomes clear
And in that one moment
You start to believe there's nothing to fear
A new world calls for me to follow
A new world waits for my reply
A new world holds me to a promise
Standing by, standing by

Box Office: Tickets £8.00 from Dixon Kelley Estate Agents or on the door.

21 - 23 November 2019

'Murder On Cue' is a murder mystery set in Maple Lodge, a retirement home for actors, where gossip and old rivalries sustain the residents as much as the dry sherry and shepherd’s pie. A fall of snow means the home is cut off from the outside world. No-one can leave, including Gareth, the young solicitor who arrived that afternoon to re-do the will of his waspish Aunt Sybil. Sue, the manager, and Judy, her assistant, discuss the problem that the home is under threat of closure and what to do about a spate of poison pen letters, that Sue means to get to the bottom of. There are many rivalries between, and old grudges held by, the other residents: sensible Molly, camp Larry, ditzy Desiree, gentlemanly Charles and grande dame Olivia. It would appear that everyone has cause to dislike one of the residents, namely bitchy Sybil........

Venue: The Mill Arts Centre, Spiceball Park Rd, Banbury OX16 5QE

Box Office: www.themillartscentre.co.uk
Tickets from £13.50


25th - 28th November 2019 7:30pm

Ruth Ellis was the last woman to be hanged in Britain in 1955 after being convicted of shooting her lover, David Blakely. The Thrill of Love dramatises this true story, taking a closer look at the women behind the headlines.
A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there’s more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Ruth meets wealthy, womanising David – a racing driver – with whom she becomes obsessed. She also begins seeing Desmond Cussen, a man driven mad with jealousy by her tempestuous and often violent relationship with David.
Whittington’s play focuses on Ruth’s interior life, as well as her friendship with three women all working the club scene: the dependable club owner, Sylvia, aspiring actor and model, Vickie and charwoman, Doris. These friends provide comfort to her as she battles abusive lovers and a rabid press.
Detective Jack Gale follows her story from the beginning, hoping to piece together her motive for murdering David and, more importantly, whom she might be protecting.

Venue: Arc Theatre, Trowbridge

Box Office: TicketSource

Tue 26 - Sat 30 Nov 2019, 7:30PM

Little Shop of Horrors is a horror comedy rock musical with music by Alan (‘Disney’) Menken and lyrics and a book by Howard Ashman. The story follows a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh. The musical is based on the low-budget 1960 black comedy film The Little Shop of Horrors and pays homage to (whilst gently making fun of) the low-budget US sci-fi horror film genre of the 1950s and 60s. The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, “Skid Row (Downtown)”, “Somewhere That’s Green”, and “Suddenly, Seymour”.

In a small bar called The Weir in a rural town in Ireland, three local men are settling down for the night, enjoying good beer and company. Their normal routine is shaken up when their friend Finland enters the bar and introduces them to Valerie, an attractive woman from Dublin who has just moved into an old haunted house in the town. As the night (and the amount of liquor) progresses, each local from the bar starts to tell a tale of ghostly happenings in the town to impress her. What starts as innocent braggadocio between the men turns into a real fright when Valerie reveals a real, haunted tale of her own from the past. Examining chances of missed opportunity and the loneliness that results in it, The Weir is a haunting play with its roots in Irish folklore.

The great orchestral conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler had a choice when Hitler came to power in Germany. He could have left and showed his disgust at a violent racist dictatorship. Or he could have stayed to protect the values of German civilisation and help his fellow musicians.
He stayed and conducted for Hitler. Did he do the right thing? Was he just putting his personal ambition above his principles? Should he have left the country and lived as an exile? What would we have done?
The play takes place in the ruins of Berlin after the German defeat. To work again Furtwängler must be investigated by an American de-Nazification tribunal. But this is run by a hard-nosed, hostile US officer who has no interest in music and little sympathy for the great conductor. As the interviews go on, the tension between the two men rises. It is increasingly difficult to know what is right and which side to take.
The powerful and compelling play explores a fascinating and disturbing dilemma that faced creative artists in Nazi Germany. But it raises wider issues – as what point do we say ‘NO’ before it is too late?

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?

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!

Colchester Theatre Group's play for autumn 2019 is this superb, multi-award winning dark comedy from Martin McDonagh, author of In Bruges, Three Billboards and A Very Very Very Dark Matter. Featuring four well-known local actors at the top of their game and directed by playwright, director and theatre critic Paul T Davies, this story of a dysfunctional relationship between a spinster and her domineering mother will be sure to entertain and shock you in equal measure!
If you've seen 'In Bruges', 'Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri' or the production of 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' you'll know you're in for a treat! Colchester Theatre Group's "Beauty Queen of Leenane" is a DARK comedy! It deals with the trivial day to day life of Mag an old woman and her spinster daughter Maureen. But don’t be deceived! Their story is not as bland as the Complan that Mag is made to take. Their ongoing toxic power struggle has a shocking conclusion.

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.……

Argosy Players present Oscar Wilde’s most popular play, The Importance of Being Earnest, which tells the story of Jack and Algernon, two bachelors and best friends, trying to avoid social obligations. They create 'Ernest', a persona which gives them reason to leave their families.
Jack is in love with Algernon's cousin, Gwendolen while Algernon is in love with Jack's ward, Cecily - but the two ladies have both fallen in love with Ernest.
The Importance of Being Earnest is both comedy and a social farce - about love, position, and a handbag...

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.

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

Author: The classic Spanish folk tragedy by Federico Garcia Lorca. The director is Kirsty Van Den Bulk

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.

UK
London


Venue: St Michael's Centre, Elmwood Rd, SW6 2 Chiswick

Box Office: stmichaelsplayers.cloudvenue.co.uk/anexperimentwithanairpump

16 Oct – 19 Oct 7:45pm

Just how far would someone go for the advancement of science?
Join us this October and discover what lurks beneath the surface!
An Experiment with An Air Pump is a gripping drama that deals with the ethics of science and women scientists at the turn of two significant centuries.
In 1799 Newcastle Joseph Fenwick, a radical forward-looking physician and scientist carries out experiments while his neglected wife consoles herself with brandy, his twin daughters feud, and one of his two assistants attempts to seduce the deformed maidservant. In the same house in 1999, Ellen, an eminent geneticist, is torn between ethical doubts and the lure of a new job offering a significant and much-needed increase in salary. A gruesome discovery under the kitchen floor adds further complications.
This is a thought-provoking and moving play. It demonstrates the differences in attitude towards ethics, towards women, towards science and towards women in science in two different eras - how much has changed and, sadly, how much hasn’t. The characters are convincing, with their complexities slowly revealed. Having the same actors playing the main roles in both eras underlines the differences and similarities.

When Eric Dawson, a stranger, turns up claiming to have known Richard's second fiancee - a woman Richard claims does not exist - Barbara's health worsens and she isn't the only one. With bad luck spreading almost as quickly as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill Barbara - and anyone else who gets in their way.

"All the best thrillers have their fair share of humour, just as every comedy should have an element of tragedy - and the assured, comic touch of Norman Robbins is present here."

It's 1994... one hotel suite, four sparkling comedies
In Settling Accounts, the suite is occupied by an explosively drunk Welsh writer holding his sleazy business manager - caught absconding with his money - at gunpoint.
An American widow and daughter take over the suite in Going Home. At the daughter’s insistence, 'Mother' spends her last evening in London on a disastrous date with a very rich and very strange Scotsman...
Diana & Sidney adds a bittersweet note to the comedy. Oscar-winning actress Diana is reunited with her ex-husband for the first time in years... and Sidney has a secret.
The evening ends in hilarious slapstick fashion: the guests in The Man on the Floor are a married couple who have lost their precious Wimbledon Final tickets and are about to lose their suite to Kevin Costner: the hotel manager is unhelpful, the bellboy is clueless, and a back injury means the eccentric hotel doctor is called for...

The show tells the story of lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier who, after witnessing her mobster boyfriend committing a murder, is forced to relocate to a Convent under the guise of a Nun for her own protection. Once installed in the convent, Deloris proceeds to upend the quiet lives of the resident sisters. In an effort to keep her out of trouble, the Nuns assign Deloris to direct the convent's choir, an ensemble that she soon turns into a vibrant and soulful act that gains widespread attention, and some unexpected but firm friendships are created along the way.
Sister Act The Musical is based on the 1992 film of the same name starring Whoopi Goldberg, and the musical version came to London's West End in 2009 starring Patina Miller and Sheila Hancock.

New York, 1936. The Footlights Club provides a warm sense of community for the budding female performers who lodge there. Terry Randall is a talented and witty girl from the Midwest who is determined to become a leading stage actress. But, when she’s offered a Hollywood movie contract, will she sell out her love of theatre and head West?
The Broadway life of the Depression Era is all here: the heart-breaking 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 rare breakthroughs to stardom. All punctuated with witty one-liners and smart comments on the uphill struggle that is ‘making it’ in show business.
The women of the Footlights Club know the odds are stacked against them. As Terry says to her egotistical playwright boyfriend: “You don't know what it is to be an actress. You're a writer--if you feel something you can write it. But I can't act unless they let me.”
Historical note: The Footlights Club was based on the Rehearsal Club, a Broadway haven for women performers during the 1930s. It was conceived by the play’s co-author Edna Ferber, whose niece was a struggling actress in New York at the time.

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 musical inspired by and featuring the music of Elvis Presley

All Shook Up

Scotland

Venue: Kings theatre, Glasgow

Box Office: www.glasgowlightoperaclub.co.uk/book

Oct 23rd-26th

The music of Elvis comes alive in All Shook Up. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up follows a small Midwestern town that is thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town to town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart.
Repressed by their conservative mayor, the town begins to come alive once more under Chad’s influence. Lovers meet, woo, pursue, and more, all in one zany night that will change the town forever. All Shook Up is a rocking, heart warming tale about following dreams, opening up to love, and the power of music

23rd, 24th, 25th & 26th October 2019 at 8pm

Harvey is a 1944 play by the American playwright Mary Chase. Chase received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the work in 1945. It has been adapted for film and television several times, most notably in a 1950 film starring James Stewart.
Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta Louise, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium. When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues.

The Lyric Players will be getting back in the habit at the Adrian Mann Theatre in Epsom with the uplifting and miraculous musical comedy, Sister Act and we would love to see you there.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet, Sister Act was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical and features original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty And The Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors). Together with Glenn Slater’s clever lyrics and a book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner (Cheers) this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music will leave you ready to get down with that Sunday Morning Fever!

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today.
Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the twentieth century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colourful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story.
Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road.
That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!

They love dreams
Alice, Dan, Larry and Anna meet, fall in love, betray each other, fall out of love and…more… These fours lives intertwine in a stinging tale of love, deception, obsession, anger and devastation. This is modern love.
There’s a moment. There’s always a moment…before we fall in love. When we can resist. When we can say No. But we don’t always resist. Strangers become lovers and lovers become strangers.

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.

This autumn, AmEgos Theatre brings GUYS AND DOLLS to Wantage, Oxfordshire.
Many of you will be familiar with this award winning musical, set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score makes Guys And Dolls a true crowd pleaser.

Under the care of a famous young doctor who educates him and introduces him to London society, Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realised………..

31st October, 1st and 2nd November at 7:45pm

The Coal Hole
London in the late 1940s. Diana Fox, a glamorous and beautiful widow in her fifties, lives in a townhouse overlooking Regent’s Park with Jane, her only child. Jane is 33, single and lonely and spends her life serving her mother’s every whim. She carries a sense of guilt related to the accidental death of her father, for which she feels responsible. Diana’s and Jane’s already brittle domestic relationship is tested by the arrival of a lodger, retired actor and widower, Stratton Doyle.

Curtain Call
Actors take over an abandoned theatre to pay tribute to their friend and brilliant writer who died in a tragic road accident, ten years earlier. Each year on that anniversary they produce one of the writer’s plays in his honour – even though there is never an audience to see it. As the play progresses their various relationships are revealed, as is the driving force behind the annual commemoration. The cast, though, are at a loss to know where one of the actresses has got to, and they search everywhere for her. When she does finally arrive it brings about an unexpected revelation that may well change all of their lives.

BUNKERED

Author: Lynn Brittney

Venue: Elstead Village Hall, Thursley Road, Elstead, Surrey GU8 6DG

A Comedy In Two Acts
Somewhere near the coast in Britain is a Naval Intelligence Cold War Bunker, manned by four naval personnel nearing retirement. Only, as far as the Royal Navy is concerned, the bunker was decommissioned in 1991 and the staff were made redundant.
But somehow they all slipped through the net and continued to receive monthly pay cheques from the Ministry of Defence computer system.
Peter decides to bring a friend in to bring all the equipment up to full working order.
Imagine the alarm at Naval Headquarters when they start getting distress signals from a defunct bunker.
Time to panic! With hilarious consequences...

4th Sept till the 7th Sept 7:30pm

A set of five interlinked one act plays: Mother Figure, Drinking Companion, Between Mouthfuls, Gosforth's Fete and A Talk in the Park. Each play deals riotously, but with sharply pointed undertones, with human eccentricities and the human dilemma of loneliness: a mother unable to escape from baby talk, a disastrous fete, an unsuccessful seduction attempt, a fate fraught dinner encounter and the final play sums up with five self-immolated characters on park benches.

7th Sept 7:30pm

Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew
Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

9th to 14th September

A very English drama, where nothing is quite how it seems, is coming to the award-winning Sharnbrook Mill Theatre Trust.
Grace is everything you expect a vicar’s wife to be: loyal, organised, a pillar of the community and very well-behaved, but after the death of her husband, Bardolph, things start to change.
Grace has been left angry, lonely and without her main role in life and she wants everyone to know it.
As she prepares to leave her family home to make way for the new vicar, Grace uses her razor-sharp tongue to take everything out on those nearest and dearest to her, including her sister, Ruth and daughter, Jo.
She is not the only person questioning her position. Can the new vicar, Sarah, cope with being a modern woman in a man’s role and is her faith as strong as she originally thought?
Made famous by Penelope Keith, Entertaining Angels will leave you crying, laughing and wondering if the skeletons in their closets should remain where they are.

Venue: The Paget Rooms, Penarth

Box Office: 02920708037

11th, 12th, 13th and 14th September 2019

The award-winning Concept Players continue their celebration of the company’s 25th anniversary, after bringing the classic musical My Fair Lady to Penarth in March, by presenting the romantic comedy, She Loves Me, at The Paget Rooms this September.
Based on the 1937 play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklós László, this heart-warming musical takes place in the 1930s, where Maraczek's Parfumerie shop clerks, Georg and Amalia, often do not see eye to eye. However, both have replied to a lonely-hearts advertisement in the newspaper looking for a pen pal, with neither realising that they are each other's secret admirer! Will their love continue to blossom once their identities are finally revealed? The endearing innocence and old-world elegance of this charming musical has been keeping audiences spellbound for more than 50 years.
Adapted a number of times for the big screen, this wonderful tale was the basis of the Tom Hanks Meg Ryan film You’ve Got Mail and this musical adaptation has had numerous award winning revivals in London and on Broadway recently.
Concept Players have been entertaining and intriguing audiences for a quarter of a century and recent productions such as Evita, The Pirates of Penzance, Blood Brothers and Merrily We Roll Along show off their wonderful attention to detail and just how diverse and imaginative their productions can be. So book soon to see SheLoves Me as it is not to be missed.

Venue: Jubilee Hall, Kings Worthy, Winchester

Box Office: The easiest way to book tickets is via the website at www.theworthyplayers.co.uk from August 1st.

Friday and Saturday, 13th & 14th September 7:3-pm

Those Worthy Players have come up with a second ‘Radio Show’ to accompany the biennial Worthies Festival in September. For an amateur group, producing a new show when most of the cast are learning their lines for the December panto is not so easy, so the producers, David and Alison Woolford, devised a format where the actors are permitted to read their scripts, radio style, in front dummy microphones, with audiences as ‘the studio audience’. (No canned laughter here!) In honour of the occasion, the cast dress formally, as in the days of good old Auntie BBC when newsreaders wore dinner jackets and black tie.
Like the successful production of 2017, the show includes comedy sketches, songs and a thriller series with some not-so-subtle similarities to ‘Dick Barton, Special Agent’. Much of the material is written by the team.

UK
West Midlands


Venue: Stourbridge Town Hall

Box Office: www.seaty.co.uk/QBMTYS-SWEENEY

18-21st September 2019

One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public. Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the signal achievements of the American musical theatre of the last fifty years, and it’s the high water mark of Sondheim’s six remarkable collaborations with director Harold Prince.

First performed at the Thorndike, Leatherhead on the 8th May 1990 "Out Of Order" was subsequently produced at the Shaftsbury Theatre, London and went on to win London’s Lawrence Olivier Award for “Comedy of the Year".
Richard Willey MP is meeting Jane Worthington (the personal assistant of the Opposition Leader) in the room of his Westminster hotel.
A problem arises in the shape of a dead body stuck in the window of their suite.
As Richard shouldn’t be with the young lady in the first place he can’t report the body to either the hotel management or the police so (foolish fellow) he enlists the aid of George Pigden. RRichard’s wife, the wily waiter and the suspicious hotel manager are on hand to add to the mayhem which includes a private detective (where did he come from?) and George’s mother’s nurse (where did she come from?)
In the time honoured tradition of bawdy "Carry On" style comedy and seaside humour this is British farce at its very best!

Thurs 1st - Sat 3rd August @ 19:30

In a virtual space of an internet chatroom, a group of bored and restless teenagers spend their time deconstructing anything from children’s literature, to the mixed messages in modern pop music and even… suicide.

When a new member joins to share his thoughts and depression the conversation takes a dark turn. The group is torn between those who want to help and those who see this as a chance to create a martyr for the teenage population.

Inspired by real life events and current (and at times worrying) trends involving teenagers, loneliness and the internet. This show is about manipulation, cyber bullying, adolescent insecurity and the dangers young people can find themselves in when looking for reassurances from certain platforms online.

With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

Born in Rhyl, a divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there's more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Then Ruth meets the wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver with whom she becomes obsessed. Fame comes - but not the way she imagines.

Our Country’s Good:
Friday 5 July, Sunday 7 July (matinee), Tuesday 9 July, Friday 12 July, Saturday 13 July (matinee & evening), Wednesday 17 July, Friday 19 July, Saturday 20 July (evening).

This July, Garden Suburb Theatre will be returning to one of our favourite venues – the Little Wood Open Air Theatre, NW11 6QS (entrances from Denman Drive, Oakwood Road and Addison Way), for our annual set of summer performances.
But this time there’s a big difference: we’ll be putting on not one but TWO shows, so there’ll be plenty of opportunity to experience some top-notch outdoors amateur theatre.
A pair of talented casts will be getting their teeth into The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare, directed by Diana Bromley, and Our Country’s Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker, directed by Kayne McCutcheon. These two very different plays will be running in rep, with nine performances each between 4th and 20th July – and as an added extra, if you book to see both shows we’ll be running a Buy One Get One Half Price deal which will give you great value for money as well as the chance to see two moving, exciting and engrossing pieces of theatre.
The Merchant of Venice probably needs no introduction – this Shakespeare classic explores the universal and always relevant themes of justice, intolerance and law, alongside a number of romantic subplots. We’re really looking forward to bringing this well-known text and characters like Portia and Shylock to life in a new, exciting way. Anyone who has seen one of Garden Suburb Theatre’s previous Shakespeare productions (like Measure for Measure last year) will be aware of just how well his plays work in the Little Wood Open Air space, so this is one not to be missed.
Our Country’s Good, by female playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker, tells the amazing true story of the first penal colony in Australia, focusing on a group of convicts who put on a play under the guidance of Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark. With a variety of colourful characters based on real people, actors playing multiple roles, and a brilliant mixture of comedy and tragedy, this dramatic and insightful play shines a light on the power of theatre to combat prejudice and bring people together.

Helene Alving is about to dedicate an orphanage she has built in the memory of her dead philandering husband to deplete her husband’s wealth so that their son, Oswald, might not inherit anything from him. She discovers that her son Oswald is suffering from syphilis that he inherited from his father.She also discovers that Oswald has fallen in love with Regina Engstrand, Mrs. Alving’s maid, which is a serious problem because Regina is revealed to be an illegitimate daughter of Captain Alving, and therefore Oswald is falling in love with his half-sister. When the sibling relationship is exposed, Regina leaves, and Oswald is in a state of despair and anguish. He asks his mother to help him die by an overdose of morphine in order to end his suffering from his disease, which could put him into a helpless vegetative state.Mrs. Alving has to confront this decision: whether or not to euthanize her son in accordance with his wishes.

Venue: Moot Hall, Harlow CM20 3AG

Box Office: TicketSource

14th, 15th and 16th July 2019, 7.30pm

The man in the end cell isn’t like the others.
The man in the end cell is a gentleman, or so she’s heard.
The man in the end cell can read.
The man in the end cell is Dick Turpin.
Unknowing that she is imprisoning one of the most dangerous outlaws in the country, Abigail visits the curious man in the end cell each day, bringing him his meals and letters.
But there is more to life than waiting on the scum of the earth, and Abigail knows it.
In exchange for ale pilfered from her father, she begs for writing lessons – her key to the outside world lying in making sense of the spidery black letters on white parchment.
For although she is the gaoler, she is as much imprisoned as he – born within the four walls, she has never known life outside the cells.
What starts as a bargain morphs into a strange, uneasy friendship.
When Abigail finds out the true identity of the man she has been visiting, she ought to flee – but instead offers him a new deal, her liberty in exchange for his.
With a brand new script, set, and score, I Am Turpin is a ground-breaking piece of immersive historical drama from the critically-acclaimed playwright Antonia Goddard.

The exception is Margaret Ellwood. She prides herself on her allotment which is looked after by her long suffering husband, Eric. She despairs at the way that Shingley Hill Allotments is declining.
Then, the Inspector of allotments from the council unexpectedly turns up. He has been sent on a secret assignment to assess Shingley Hill allotments as the council are looking to redevelop the site. He gets to know Margaret and also meet some of the unusual characters who have allotment plots at Shingley Hill. He sees how bad things have become and lets slip to Margaret that the Council have plans! Margaret, much to the frustration of Eric, decides to take matters into her own hands. She decides to reform the Allotment Committee.
Margaret decides that there is going to be a big shake up at Shingley Hills Allotments – things are going to improve and she plans a grand relaunch. A lavish function to show off to everyone just how good Shingley Hills actually is. There is lots of detailed planning and jobs are allocated. Various dignatories including the local MP are invited to the great re-launch.
Will it all go to plan? Will it be a success? Will Margaret save Shingley Hill Allotments?

In addition to Les Miserables, the great Victor Hugo also wrote this equally famous and revered literary classic.
The tale of Quasimodo- bell ringer of Notre Dame, and his hopeless love for Esmeralda, inspired a Walt Disney animation and many more well known adaptations.
But NOW there is a brand new theatrical experience which brings the original book – with all its romance and passion, bitter jealousy and murderous subterfuge- vividly to life!
This is a story as relevant and poignant today as it was when it was first written, both hilariously funny and heartbreakingly tragic.
So, ring out the bells! .. because this Summer, Western College Players are celebrating their 90th anniversary year with their most exciting, ambitious and entertaining theatrical event yet…

I Am a Camera was initially inspired by Christopher Isherwood’s The Berlin Stories. The play itself went on to inspire the musical show and film ‘Cabaret’ which famously starred Liza Minelli. It centres around Isherwood’s life during the time he spent in Germany during the Second World War and the action takes place in the bed-sitting room of Fraulein Schneider’s lodging house in Berlin. Confronting frank subjects such as pregnancy and unwanted racism it’s a tellingly real piece of history and life.

Introducing Horseshoe Theatre Company. Their debut play is a play written by the acclaimed British playwright Richard Harris in 1984 called ‘Stepping Out’, a play which concerns eight individuals from disparate backgrounds and with differing motivations who attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy North London church hall. Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions and showing little co-ordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness. The dance routines are the background for the focus of the play, the relationship and interaction of different people.

4-8 JUNE 7:30pm

This June Wild Duck Theatre in co-production with Barnes Community Players brings to SW London an exciting ‘in the round’ staging of Mike Bartlett’s standout play King Charles III - first performed in 2014 and lead by a stella cast that included the late Tim Pigott-Smith it received rave reviews
'a splendid provocation and a really fine play' The Guardian
'Featuring the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the ghost of Diana and a full-blown constitutional crisis– this is not for the faint-hearted' The Guardian
'This is the most spectacular, gripping and wickedly entertaining piece of lèse-majesté that British theatre has ever seen .....' The Telegraph
The play opens in Westminster Abbey with the death of Queen Elizabeth II – and finds Prince Charles struggling in his new role as King in the strange atmosphere which grips the Nation.RIn turn domestic satire around the Royal Family, political thriller as Charles clashes with Parliament and Shakespearean history/tragedy as he is forced to submit to the will of the people, the play explores the luxury and isolation of the greatest power in the land – the Monarch. What price Democracy?

They said it was... UNSTAGEABLE
They said it was... UNACHIEVABLE
They said it was... IMPOSSIBLE in today’s financial climate.
But we’re going ahead and doing it anyway!
Based on the timeless story from one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, the Southwick Players present this rip roaring comedy stage adaptation, which condenses the epic tale so that it can be told by just seven (7) actors.
We follow an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur.
He falls low as a galley slave and rises to become a champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ...
All while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere.
Complete with chariot race, sea battle, and stage combat, Patrick Barlow weaves his compressed style popularized by The 39 Steps into one of the largest stories ever told.

Crime novelist and amateur sleuth Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croosty), finds herself in the middle of a series of murders whilst visiting her sister-in-law Alice in the small village of Chortelby. The members of the All Saints Village Hall committee seem to be dropping like flies and our Agatha can’t help herself but to get involved in trying to solve the clues as to whoodunnit – particlarly since the incompetent D.I.
