Venue: VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE

August 2020 onwards

THE ASSASSINATION OF ROBERT OPRAY

Taking inspiration from other amdram groups who have produced ‘virtual’ entertainment during lockdown. Southwell Theatre Club have a free to listen to podcast radio play, ‘THE ASSASSINATION OF ROBERT OPRAY’. Nearly half an hour long, the inhouse produced comedy/drama was made via Zoom, with actors using their smart phones to record their voices, and then emailing to the producer/sound engineer to work some magic, and spend hours and hours putting it together!
Here is the synopsis: ‘Simon Blundell is a writer on a tv quiz show. He longs to be a serious writer, but has been sucked into a cycle of writing scripts for the quiz show host, Robert Opray, who he hates. He hates him because he is successful, handsome, and women love him.
Simon wants to break free, but hasn’t any other income. His one big hope is that his play ‘Amlet’, will be put on by The National Theatre. His frustration builds up, and he vents it in the crass dialogue and stupid jokes that he puts into Robert’s mouth. But his hopes of assassinating Robert’s character, and exposing him as a fool, backfire when this only increases his popularity! When things go pear shaped nearer home, there is another kind of assassination to consider!’

Box Office: To listen, just Google www.soundcloud.com and tap in ‘The Assassination of Robert Opray.’ Enjoy!

Wednesday 26th August at 7.00pm 09:20pm

We are delighted to invite you to our very first virtual performance on Wednesday 26th August 2020 at 7.00pm.

We've got seven fantastic, short monologues for your enjoyment, written by Nancy McPherson and Paul Glasswell, that take a sideways look at the recent lockdown and unmask the funny bits !

We'll be using the Zoom app - which many of you will be familiar with already - so if you'd like to join us for a bit of armchair theatre please let us know by joining the event on our Facebook page.

As you'll appreciate, virtual seats are limited so we'll need to know in advance how many different devices on which you wish to watch the performance (e.g. if three of you will be watching in separate rooms, we'll need to reserve three places for you. But if three of you are gathered around one computer or ipad, we'll only reserve one place for you).

A few days before the performance, we'll email you the information you need to join. Virtual "doors" will open at 7.00pm. Performance starts promptly at 7.30pm and there will be one 10 minute break and one 15 minute break built in to the evening. The event will finish at 9.20pm.

What you will need:
• A device with a camera or a webcam (eg a computer, laptop, ipad, tablet or mobile phone)
• A connection to the internet
• If your device uses apps, you'll need to download the Zoom app beforehand. Search for Zoom in your app store.
• If your device doesn't use apps, you don't need to download anything.
• If you've never used Zoom before, why not download it early and practice by setting up a meeting with that family member or friend you've been meaning to check in on.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 26th August at 7.00pm !

Please join, share or invite friends to our first ever VIRTUAL production on Wed 26th August 2020 at 7.00pm

Zanna, Don’t! A Rebooted Quantum Football Fable

Author: Book, Music, and Lyrics by TIM ACITO
Additional Book and Lyrics by ALEXANDER DINELARIS
Originally produced Off Broadway by Jack M. Dalgleish in association with Stephanie A. Joel
New York Premiere presented by Amas Musical Theatre: Rosetta LeNoire, Founder; Donna Trinkoff, Producing Director
Orchestrations and Arrangements by Edward G. Robinson
“Zanna, Don’t! A Rebooted Quantum Football Fable” is presented through special arrangement with and all authorised performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW), 122-124 Regent Street, 3rd floor, London W1B 5SA. www.theatricalrights.co.uk

Zanna, Don’t! A Rebooted Quantum Football Fable

UK
London


Venue: The Bridewell Theatre, 14 Bride Ln, Fleet St, London EC4Y 8EQ

Box Office: www.centrestagelondon.co.uk
Tickets available early 2020


14th - 18th July 2020 7:30pm
2.30pm Saturday Matinee

The critically-acclaimed and award-winning Off-West End cult musical is back! Re-written and re-booted reflecting today’s evolving LGBTQIA+ community. Returning to London for a European Premiere just in time for Pride in London and a strictly limited run!
Welcome to Hearstville, USA. A wholesome, patriotic town where everyone is LGBTQIA+ and the straight people are the unfortunate subjects of “heterophobia.” The big-man-on-campus is the chess champion and the captain of the football team is only made popular by being cast in the school musical. The students write a controversial show called “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” about straight people in the military, which becomes the catalyst for a young man and woman to fall in love. Knowing their love is forbidden, this straight couple try to hide their love until a spontaneous show of affection lets the cat out of the bag. Enter Zanna, a magical pangender hall monitor (and coolest person in school). Will Zanna be able to use his magic to help his friends find respect, loyalty, acceptance and love?
Those who remember the original Zanna, Don’t! will find this new Rebooted version has the same basic story, with all the original characters but with new dialogue, four new songs and ten original songs substantially revised. This sparkling new Zanna has only had one production in the US since it’s revision in 2017 and by special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide, Centre Stage London is extremely proud to be producing the European Premiere of Zanna, Don’t! A Rebooted Quantum Football Fable.
Author Tim Acito says, “I’m thrilled that Centre Stage will be presenting the UK premier of the new version of Zanna, Don’t! In this rebooted version, instead of trying to make the show bigger and more current, I’ve tried to do the opposite – to return it to the humbler, vintage roots that spurred its original conception. Hopefully the characters and story have deepened without losing their innocence, playfulness, or ramshackle charm.”
Take a trip back to Heartville and see the European Premiere of the new Zanna, Don’t! A Rebooted Quantum Football Fable at The Bridewell Theatre during Pride celebrations in July 2020!
Running time is 90mins, no interval

Thu 23 - Sat 25 July 2020

It is the most loved Gilbert & Sullivan opera, and its topsy-turvy story delights audiences the world over.
Gilbert & Sullivan is a truly British phenomenon and certainly much of its absurdity and eccentricity appears in this exciting new production.
The glorious music of Sullivan performed by the Ploverleigh Savoy Orchestra, under the baton of Musical Director Alison McFadyen, and Gilbert’s wonderful, witty dialogue and outstanding political satire, is crafted to perfection by award winning Artistic Director Shane Collins.
There is simply nothing else quite like it, G & S is special, and it has that rare quality of lifting the spirits, putting a skip in the step, and making life just feel better.

Set in the 1930s, Bobby Child is a talented song & dance man, longing for a life in the theatre. He’s sent away on business by his domineering mother to the run-down, gold mining town of Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose the Gaiety Theatre. Once there, despite already having a fiancée, he falls in love with the feisty Polly, daughter of the theatre owner. Failing to impress her, he dreams up the idea to put on a magnificent show to raise money for the theatre in order to save it.RThe elaborate plot involves Bobby impersonating Bela Zangler (an established New York producer) & inviting the glamorous dancing follies to support his cast of singing, dancing cowboys. All this goes awry when no-one comes to see the show on opening night. Then Bobby’s fiancée, Irene, turns up followed by the real Zangler. Bobby confesses to Polly who can’t forgive his deceit. The path of true love rarely runs smoothly, but the town is reinvigorated, the theatre is saved, and eventually the two fall in love.

Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show comes to Derby this May with Kaleidoscope Player’s spirited rendition of Irving Berlin’s classic western: Annie Get Your Gun!
When the show rolls into Cincinnati, famed sharp-shooter Frank Butler challenges any local shot to a shooting match but his enormous ego is taken down a notch when he is beaten by the rough and tumble Annie Oakley. Her shooting is remarkable and Buffalo Bill manages to persuade the backwoods girl into his show, much to the chagrin of Frank’s personal showgirl Dolly. But the scheme to use Annie to rake in the dough is quickly put in jeopardy. Never mind the star-crossed lovers Winnie and Tommy, or rival Pawnee Bill’s Far East show – it is the tumultuous passions of Annie and Frank that threaten to take down the whole show!
Annie’s unwavering talent might be able to wow the crowds but is it enough to soften Frank’s heart? After all, you can’t get a man with a gun!
Award-winning amateur dramatics group Kaleidoscope Players bring this much-loved, female-led show to life May 8th & 9th at Landau Forte Theatre, Landau Forte College. Based on real-life events, it’s the fun-loving, feet-tapping, rootinest, tootinest story of love, money and friendship in the whole gash-darned west!

Directed by Brian Theodore Ralph

MACBETH

UK
Suffolk


Venue: The Sir John Mills Theatre, Ipswich

Box Office: 01473 211498 or https://easternangles.co.uk/event/macbeth

March 30 - April 4

Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill?
What changes a man from being his country’s hero to its most loathed and dreaded murderer? Ambition? Sorcery? Fate – or simply innate evil?
One of Shakespeare’s most perfectly crafted plays explores one man’s terrifying descent to tyranny.
The Sir John Mills Theatre brings you close to the man and his mania in a brutal and violent age.
Brian Theodore Ralph directs his first play with Gallery Players. Brian is a hugely experienced theatre actor, director and educator who has spent most of his life working in the theatre and in associated media. He spent many years at The Wolsey theatre as leading actor and director, from its opening in 1979 until the early 90s. He subsequently became Programme leader of Performing Arts and Music at Suffolk New College, where he directed many Shakespeare productions.
Brian has assembled an exciting ensemble of the finest local actors and creatives for the project, including professionally trained Liam Gregory and Jo Lewis as Lord and Lady Macbeth.
‘For many, the name Macbeth is synonymous with evil and tyranny. But what does Lady Macbeth say when she learns from Macbeth that the ‘weird sisters’ have hailed him …‘Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter.’? She considers his nature to be…… “too full o’ the milk of human kindness….” he is… “not without ambition, but without the illness should attend it”.
So what happens, and why and with what consequences?
I am so excited to be working with this amazing company and to exploring these extraordinary characters and the chain of events that lead to the play’s tragic conclusion’
The production will be performed in the intense cockpit atmosphere of the Sir John Mills Theatre. The atmosphere will be enhanced by Alfie Harries’ music, which he will play live at each performance.

Lady Dorothy, a peeress and ex-model, lives in this mouldy old pile with her companion, Iris, and is mortified by the suggestion that it is opened to the public in order to stave off selling; Dorothy's archdeacon sister, June, is attempting to ...

Venue: The Thomas Hardye School, Dorchester

Monday 6th April to Saturday 18th April 2020 for 11 nights with NO performance on Good Friday 10th or Easter Sunday 12th April

Spinning the Moon is a compelling new community play based on documents provided by the DCPA Research Group.
Set in the early 16th century, the play, like Shakespeare’s history plays, has taken a sense of what was happening in Dorset over a fifty-year period and has conflated those happenings to create a work of dramatic fiction.
Central to the action are the Trenchard family, who lived at Wolfeton House on the outskirts of Dorchester. The Trenchards are desperately trying to stop their home, and the people who work their land, from spinning towards economic collapse and ruining the lives of all who depend on the estate for their livelihoods. But the advice they take from a monk leaves their community fractured to the point of violent disintegration.
Characters in the play include: the Trenchard family, farmers, shepherds and their families, the Queen of Spain and her entourage and the cunning women who live in the hills.

22nd – 25th April 2020

It’s 1994 and the residents of SunnySide care home, a quiet residential home for the elderly, are going about their mundane routine, overseen by the anally-retentive manager, Mr Maybrick. Their invisible existence has become an accepted way of life until one day a letter arrives and a dramatic discovery prompts seven World War II veterans to reflect on their lives and their value as human beings.
As the 50th anniversary of D-Day approaches, these unsung heroes decide to journey to the beaches of Normandy one last time. However, disaster strikes in the form of a newly appointed nurse whose strict methods soon make the residents feel like they are prisoners of war. Consequently, they must plan their greatest escape yet… to go behind enemy lines and spring themselves from the home.
There’s the formidable serial knitter Betty, an ex-Ministry Of War secretary; wheelchair-bound Brian, a former spitfire pilot; the flamboyant Ron and the forever-sleeping Sid, two ex-prisoners of the infamous Colditz; the mysterious Bletchley code breaker, Flo; and two heroes of the D-Day landings: wide boy wheeler-dealer Reg, and the secretive and withdrawn, Bill.
Join them on an unforgettable adventure of honour, love, loss, official secrets, balaclavas, biscuits and Ninja Turtles in this poignant, yet funny, play, inspired by the true story of Bernard Jordan.

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 but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Wed 22 - Sat 25 April 2020

Showtime! Is the 100th production since the current Dedham Players were formed 50 years ago in 1970. There is evidence of a Dedham drama group entertaining the village in the late 1940s and early 1950s with the Dedham WI drama group keeping this going during the 1960s before becoming The Dedham Players in 1970.
Showtime! Is an evening of fun showcasing the talents of members of the Players, past, present and future through comedy, music, prose and light hearted poetry. What better way to spend an evening than joining us to help celebrate our 50th birthday with the profits of this production going to Colchester Committee of Cancer Research UK.
Colchester Committee CRUK was established in 1962 and has continued to produce amazing contributions to CRUK towards their research into finding ways to beat/cure cancer. To date they have raised over £1.6 million and last year were awarded CRUK’s highest accolade The Flame of Hope. However, this was only possible thanks to the constant support from the general public attending functions and donating in whatever way possible.

Look Back in Anger

UK
London


Venue: King Alfred Phoenix Theatre, Ivy Wood, North End Road London NW11 7HY

Box Office: TicketSource

Wednesday 23rd - Saturday 25th April 2020

Directed by Michael Reffold (Assistant Director for Garden Suburb Theatre’s acclaimed open-air production of Our Country’s Good in July 2019), Look Back in Anger explores the breakdown of a marriage between original “angry young man” Jimmy Porter and his wife Alison, who Jimmy resents for being of a higher social class than him. Their relatively stable life in a small, dingy apartment with Jimmy’s friend Cliff is disrupted by the arrival of Helena, a long-time friend of Alison’s, who seems to have her own agenda and turns their existence on its head.
With a number of intense stand-offs, characters with depth, and a host of psychological avenues to explore, this dark 50s drama is sure to be explosive.
Please note that this play contains adult themes, including domestic abuse, which will be explored in a sensitive manner but may not be suitable for everyone.
Look Back in Anger will be GST’s entry into the Barnet & District Drama Festival Awards (the Barnies) for 2020.

From Panto to Farce!
The Latimer Players production of Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates last November was a huge success, playing to full houses. The new members to the group made a big hit with our audience and we are pleased to say that some of them will be appearing in our spring production.
Our spring production will be ‘Love and Money’ by Raymond Hopkins. We have built up a good rapport with Ray, having performed several of his plays, which our audiences appear to like, and our members enjoy performing.
‘Love and Money’ is a farcical comedy which takes place in the lounge of the Feltons’ house.
Life has been passing fairly smoothly for Derek and Pauline Felton until one evening when they return home to find their home has been burgled. Derek has always had a materialistic outlook on life and decides that their new house insurance policy will yield a lucrative pay out. Pauline becomes increasingly unhappy about her husband’s course of action.
Neighbour, Joyce Clements witnessed the robbery and calls in daily to offer support, advice and unwelcome comments. To add to the mayhem the vicar unexpectedly calls round. The hilarious confusion which follows has a surprising twist at the end which means the Feltons’ lives will never be the same again.

Uncertain Times!
Following Government guidelines it is with regret that the Latimer Players have cancelled their production of ‘Love and Money’ due to be staged on 23rd, 24th and 25th April. Rehearsals were in full swing and the cast were enjoying taking part but we thought, in the interest of our members and audience, cancelling at an early stage was the sensible thing to do. At the moment, this is only a postponement and we hope to bring it back either this November, instead of our annual pantomime, or April 2021. It is too soon for us to have made any decisions, but as soon as we do you will be the first to know. In the meantime from all the Latimer Players, we send our apologies and hope in these unprecedented times you keep safe and healthy, ready for us to entertain you when the situation changes.

Sylvia's Wedding

Venue: Adrian Mann Theatre, NESCOT, Reigate Road, Epsom Surrey KT17 3DS

Box Office: Tickets - £11 each can be obtained via company box office (01737 760 163) or company website - www.wpds.co.uk

April 23rd and 24th - 8.00pm
April 25th - 2.30pm

Sylvia's Wedding is yet another clear-sighted and even-handed drama written by the splendid Jimmie Chinn with all his customary wit, humanity and keenness of observation. Gordon proposes to Sylvia, after ten years of courting, and throws his family, and Sylvia's, into turmoil. Joyce and Vic, Sylvia's parents, are hardly the sort of people Gordon's pompous father, Stanley, wants his family connected with, and Vic feels much the same in return. Sylvia's best friend, Yvonne, isn't much help either - as she's all too ready to deflate Sylvia's joy with her cynical, world-weary comments. Against the odds, the two warring families co-operate in the wedding preparations and all looks set for success - but fate intervenes. The spirited comedy of the early scenes gives way to bitter irony....as again family values and relationships are given a stern examination in a stylish Chinn piece.

Worcester Park Dramatic Society (WPDS) was founded in 1927 and has been delighting audiences with a wide variety of awards -winning drama productions ever since. Our next production will be staged:

Box Office: 0208 851 9881 or necpneweltham@yahoo.co.uk

Thursday 23rd - Saturday 25th of April at 7:30pm

Based on Melvyn Bragg's stirring novel of Cumbrian rural and industrial working life, set in the first quarter of the twentieth century, The Hired Man tells the story of the Tallentires during 2 periods of their lives in rural Cumbria. John Tallentire’s attempts to settle down in a new village working as a hired farmhand who enjoys nothing more than a day's hard work on the land, as his wife Emily adapts to her new home, neglect from her industrious husband and the temptations of the farmers son Jackson.
Set against the background of working class ritual-whippet racing, hiring fairs, hunting, drinking bouts, union meetings-the musical brings alive that cavalcade of British history which swept us into a new century and the horror of a war to end all wars, Howard Goodall's superb score is strong in the British choral tradition-a marvellous succession of chorales, operatic duets and vigorous foot-stomping rhythms which will have you singing along long after the show is over.
In 1984, during its West End run, The Hired Man was awarded the Ivor Novello Award for Best Musical, earned four Olivier Award nominations, and was voted Best Musical of the Year by the critics of Time Out, The Guardian, Punch & The Stage.
With as many highs as lows come along and see this story of love, loss and betrayal which will have you gripped from start to finish, so live the life of Riley and join us for a show like no other!

However, the family encounters an unforeseen obstacle when Wednesday decides to introduce her new “normal” boyfriend Lucas to the family. In protest, Uncle Fester enlists the help of the Addams’ ancestors to call an end to the young budding romance.
As the families of Wednesday and Lucas come together for dinner one fateful evening, chaos ensues and the two families find themselves admitting deep secrets and coming together in ways they never would have imagined.

He’s sent away on business by his domineering mother to the run-down, gold mining town of Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose the Gaiety Theatre. Once there, despite already having a fiancée, he falls in love with the feisty Polly, daughter of the theatre owner. Failing to impress her, he dreams up the idea to put on a magnificent show to raise money for the theatre in order to save it.RThe elaborate plot involves Bobby impersonating Bela Zangler (an established New York producer) & inviting the glamorous dancing follies to support his cast of singing, dancing cowboys. All this goes awry when no-one comes to see the show on opening night. Then Bobby’s fiancée, Irene, turns up followed by the real Zangler. Bobby confesses to Polly who can’t forgive his deceit. The path of true love rarely runs smoothly, but the town is reinvigorated, the theatre is saved, and eventually the two fall in love.

It’s jolly hockey sticks at the ready as Daisy Meredith, a plucky girl from a poor background, is the first pupil allowed to attend the posh Grangewood School for Girls on a scholarship.
This parody of a typical English boarding school is a rip-roaring, whizzo of a treat that was a long-running success in London’s West End.
Not only must Daisy fit in with her snobby and snotty chums, it seems like saving the school is a lesson she must learn.

In Victorian London, while the Jack Manningham is on the town each evening, his new wife Bella is home alone at number nine, Thornton Square. She can’t explain the disappearance of familiar objects, the mysterious footsteps overhead, or the ghostly flickering of living room gaslights, which seem to slowly dim down until they barely cast any light at all. Is she losing her mind, as her mother did before her? Her memories are haunted by an aunt violently murdered and a mother consigned to the asylum. Is the terror all in her mind, or are there dark secrets dwelling in her home?
Just as she is on the point of despair, she is visited by Rough, a retired detective, who has been on Manningham’s trail for 20 years. He has been using the maid Nancy’s boyfriend as an informant, and after enlisting the help of the housekeeper, Elizabeth, he manages to convince Bella to go along with his scheme to snare Manningham once and for all.
Nail biting tension is worked up to a frightening crescendo…
Better known on Broadway under the title Angel Street, the 1944 American movie of Gaslight starred Charles Boyer, Joseph Cotton, and Ingrid Bergman, who won the Best Actress Academy Award for her role as Bella.

Venue: The Bob Hope Theatre, Wythfield Rd, Eltham, SE9 5TG

Box Office: TicketSource

4th-7th March - 7.45pm

From the Director of Bob Hope Theatre’s version of Kindertransport comes Allan Osborne second production Bluebird. Staring Laura Ashenden (Nell Gwynn; Bomshells; Little Voice and Road) and Piers Newman (Road and Nell Gwynn) and 12 other sensational actors who have all performed at the Bob Hope Theatre - this promised to be a sesational moving production.
From the writer/adapter of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Bluebird is a sensitive and melancholy play, composed of brief conversations and lifelong sorrow.
Taxi driver Jimmy hears about other people’s lives, just for a few moments.
In the time it takes to drive them where they want to go, Jimmy hears about walking the streets, lost daughters and changing the lightbulbs by the tube tracks. He is asked whether he believes in ghosts, in love, in the human spirit. And as he drives through the night, the play gets closer to the core of his silences, to the tragedy of his own life, and to where he goes when there’s no one in the back seat of his cab.
The play has 13 characters who share a cab journey in one evening. All are somehow connected to Jimmy; as we finally find out what has led to Jimmy’s downfall.
The play is about redemption and deep grief but told in a humorous way with a real sense of pathos.

Instead of slicing off James’s right nipple, as planned, he heads back home to the island of Inishmore. But, when he arrives at the family home, he discovers that Wee Thomas isn’t sick but has had his brains squeezed out like toothpaste. Padraic, a man considered too mad for the IRA and sorely trying the patience of his INLA comrades, is intent on revenge, even if that means wiping out his own father. Just as he’s about to put a bullet through Dad’s head, there’s an unexpected knock at the door.

The Magic Tower
In 1930s New York, Linda has left her job as a Vaudeville actress to marry Jim, a young struggling painter. She thinks herself blissfully happy, living in poverty, in their tiny, run down, studio apartment (their “magic tower”) but visits from their caustic landlady and two former colleagues push Linda towards re-evaluating her situation. When Jim returns home disconsolate after failing to sell any paintings to a dealer, Linda faces a stark dilemma about her future.

Me & My Friend (Acts 1 & 2)
Originally performed as a three-act play, the first two acts are also free-standing plays in their own right.
Me and My Friend is a black comedy exploring the relationships within two “odd” couples thrown prematurely out of hospital care. In Act 1 Oz and Bunny conduct fantasy interviews for jobs they will never get. In Act 2 Julia and Robin are trying to “make plans” as urged to by the hospital. Me and My Friend is a funny, moving and heartbreaking look at mental health issues set against the Care in the Community initiative of the late 1980’s.

The Elephant Man is based on the life of Joseph "John" Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, who has been a freak attraction in traveling side shows, is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. 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 favorite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realized.

Based on the film ‘A Private Function’, written by Alan Bennett and starring Michael Palin and Maggie Smith, it’s a musical romp set around the impending wedding celebrations of young Princess Elizabeth to the dashing Philip Mountbatten in 1947. But these are desperate times where rationing is even worse than it had been in the war. And desperate times call for desperate measures! Enter the mild chiropodist Gilbert Chilvers and his social-climbing wife Joyce. When they are snubbed one too many times by the local establishment, Gilbert takes matters into his own hands and kidnaps a pig from the local bigwigs who were planning a very exclusive private function where the pig was to play a starring role – on several plates! Needless-to-say keeping a pig quiet in a suburban street proves rather difficult and hilarity ensues.
Join Concept Players, fresh from recent successes of ‘My Fair Lady’, as you’ll never forget Betty Blue Eyes once you’ve met her.

Box Office: TicketSourcce

14th March 2020 15:30 (doors open 3pm)

Trelawny of the "Wells" is an 1898 comic play with four acts set in the 1860’s by Sir Arthur Wing Pinero, who started his career in British theatre as an actor at the age of 19 and between 1877 and 1934 was a successful society dramas and comedies playwright.
This particular production tells the story of a theatre star, renown for her performances in melodrama plays - Rose Trelawny - who attempts to give up her acting career for love when she marries her well-to-do sweetheart. Alas, family life turns out to be a bit too dull for her outrageous personality and Rose struggles to fit into conventional society.
Feeling rather fed up, Rose runs back to the theatre however her experience of the "real world" has affected her talent and she finds it impossible to recapture that "special something". Not willing to give up so easily though, Rose and her troupe of talented individuals find a new way to present her new stage self, with some romantic and jolly good fun shenanigans along the way.
Trelawny of the 'Wells' has been adapted for stage, film and TV in various guises and has featured the likes of Cecil Hepworth, Alma Taylor, Sidney Franklin, Norma Shearer, Arthur Cox, Jason Connery, Patricia Brake, Sarah Brightman, Peter Bayliss, Helena Bonham Carter, Richard Bremmer, Helen McCrory and Adam Kotz.
Join us as we experience a fine late-19th-century melodrama with a contemporary audience at this one-off performance in Lewes on 14th March 2020.

MACBETH

Author: William Shakespeare
Directed by Brian Theodore Ralph

MACBETH

UK
Suffolk


Venue: The Sir John Mills Theatre, Ipswich

Box Office: 01473 211498 or https://easternangles.co.uk/event/macbeth

March 30 - April 4

Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill?
What changes a man from being his country’s hero to its most loathed and dreaded murderer? Ambition? Sorcery? Fate – or simply innate evil?
One of Shakespeare’s most perfectly crafted plays explores one man’s terrifying descent to tyranny.
The Sir John Mills Theatre brings you close to the man and his mania in a brutal and violent age.
Brian Theodore Ralph directs his first play with Gallery Players. Brian is a hugely experienced theatre actor, director and educator who has spent most of his life working in the theatre and in associated media. He spent many years at The Wolsey theatre as leading actor and director, from its opening in 1979 until the early 90s. He subsequently became Programme leader of Performing Arts and Music at Suffolk New College, where he directed many Shakespeare productions.
Brian has assembled an exciting ensemble of the finest local actors and creatives for the project, including professionally trained Liam Gregory and Jo Lewis as Lord and Lady Macbeth.
‘For many, the name Macbeth is synonymous with evil and tyranny. But what does Lady Macbeth say when she learns from Macbeth that the ‘weird sisters’ have hailed him …‘Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter.’? She considers his nature to be…… “too full o’ the milk of human kindness….” he is… “not without ambition, but without the illness should attend it”.
So what happens, and why and with what consequences?
I am so excited to be working with this amazing company and to exploring these extraordinary characters and the chain of events that lead to the play’s tragic conclusion’
The production will be performed in the intense cockpit atmosphere of the Sir John Mills Theatre. The atmosphere will be enhanced by Alfie Harries’ music, which he will play live at each performance.

His Dark Materials - Part II

Author: Philip Pullman

His Dark Materials - Part II

UK
Sussex


Venue: All Saints Centre, Friars Walk, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2LE

Box Office: TicketSource

1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th of February 2020 3:30pm

Following a sell-out success of His Dark Materials Part I in Lewes in Jan-Feb 2019, Lewes Drama Collective's Youth Group is very proud to present Part II this Winter.RLewes Drama Collective (formerly known as Lewes Theatre Youth Group) will complete the two-play stage adapted dramatisation of Philip Pullman's award-winning fantasy trilogy, His Dark Materials. Published by Nick Hern Books, Nicholas Wright's version premiered on London's Royal National Theatre revolving Olivier stage in 2003 and was quickly followed by a much longer run due to the production being so very popular.
Pullman's books were first released in 1995, have sold 17.5 million copies around the world over the years and have been translated into 40 different languages. Since our brave cast members performed Part I of His Dark Materials multi-world realities in early 2019 at Lewes Little Theatre, the BBC's own first series covered the events of Northern Lights and premiered on 3rd November 2019 on BBC 1. Filmed in the UK and starring Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, Anne-Marie Duff, James Cosmo and Ariyon Bakare, this adaptation of Pullman's magical story has earned prestigious reviews and entertained millions of viewers across the globe.
Everything is now set for the Lewes Drama Collective to bring Philip Pullman's modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction to life on the 1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th of February 2020, as our local talented actors, who are aged between 11 and 18, will take audiences of all ages on a thrilling journey!
On their path to discover the truth, extraordinary orphan Lyra Belacqua, her Daemon Pantalaimon and courageous Will Parry have been through many different worlds so far, both familiar and unknown, and on their quest have encountered the sinister and all-controlling power of The Magisterium and the child-snatching Gobblers, as well as boat dwelling gyptians, mystical witches and armoured polar bears.
The quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust is set to keep audiences on the edge of their seats as the struggle between good and evil continues in the mysterious and yet strangely familiar worlds created by the controversial genius of Phillip Pullman.
Join Lyra and her friends as they make the arduous journey to the 'republic of heaven' through the dark and haunting land of the dead, where they encounter some fantastical and frightening beings and conclude the thrilling trilogy of His Dark Materials.
Here are some of the comments received from audience members and participants of Lewes Drama Collective's performances of His Dark Materials Part I:
"When you think you've seen the best, along comes His Dark Materials! You can see how much these students thrive and enjoy what they do, they are all amazing."
"Of the many youth theatre productions I have seen, this is THE BEST!"
"We were blown away!!! Such a gripping performance by everyone. Definitely going to read the books now thanks to the inspiring show. Bring on the next one!!!"
"An incredibly complex story, very very well done!"
"His Dark Materials was such an amazing show to be involved with. I couldn't imagine a professional actor doing any better as the lead, and the entire company excelled. Direction, lighting and sets were all outstanding. Thanks so much for giving the children this incredible experience!"
Please note that due to the extensive use of staging for this production only balcony and stall seats will be available. This, in turn will mean that tickets will be limited for these matinee only performances in February at the All Saints Centre in Lewes.

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.

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!

Box Office: 07914 657 524 or book online at: southsideplayers.co.uk or On Line : TicketSource
Tickets: £12.00, concessions (Wednesday and Saturday only) £9.00


Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 February 2020
Wednesday – Friday at 7.45pm, Saturday at 3.00pm

The political arena of the inter-war years will form the backdrop to this production of Shakespeare’s thriller, depicting the Machiavellian rise to power and short reign of King Richard III of England.
Richard is the villain audiences love to hate – with wicked wit he draws us in as co-conspirators, even as he plots the murder of his nephews, the princes in the tower. And the story of intrigue and conspiracy, ambition and entitlement, will find echoes in current events.
Richard III, written in 1592-3, was the last in a series of plays about the civil war in England– the so-called ‘Wars of the Roses’, where the God-fearing Tudors finally wrest the crown from their nasty Yorkist enemies.
With an ensemble cast of 16, Southside will project the narrative onto the uncertain 1930s, showing us how a mix of extremism and apathy can allow a narcissistic and ruthless dictator to flourish.

Box Office: Tickets are now on sale for our February production priced at £10. Available from Mansell McTaggart on the High Street in person, and CASH only please.
Also available online on the WeGotTickets website subject to a 10% booking fee.
Here's the all important link or go to the "Buy Tickets" tab above


Wednesday 19th, Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd February
The plays will start at the usual time of 7:45pm
PLEASE NOTE - there will NOT be a performance on Thursday 20th February, but the performance will be rescheduled to Wednesday 19th February.

If you didn't get a chance to see our entry of the one act play "Snowed Under" by Anne-Marie Latter at the West Chiltington Drama Festival this summer, it will be reprised in February with the same cast.
The library is snowed in, stranding librarians Brenda and Sue along with one of their regular customers, Mr Whitely, for whom, as rescuers are awaited, there are surprising and dire consequences.

In addition, Caro will be directing another one act play, "Gosforth's Fete" by Alan Ayckbourn.
Forming part of Alan Ayckbourn's "Confusions", this hilarious play can be performed without the other four in the series. It is set at a village fete, and things aren't running quite as smoothly as they should. A temperamental PA system, an incontinent tea urn, and a thunder storm give the five characters much more than they bargained for when agreeing to run the fete.
There won't be food at this production, but we will have a licensed cash bar.

One young woman, one old lady. Their lives were poles apart but fate took a hand and threw them together. The only problem being they were more alike than anyone could begin to imagine, both battling adversities beyond comprehension. This funny and poignant story follows the ups and downs of the two women, as mutual dislike and mistrust turns into an unusual and heart-warming friendship. A play full of humour, pathos and sentimentality and will leave you laughing and crying, probably at the same time.

The Vagina Monologues has been translated into over 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries. The play ran for over 10 years in the UK, France and Mexico. A staggering number of the world’s most famous and talented women, including Maureen Lipman, Jerry Hall, Kate Winslett and Whoopi Goldberg, have taken part in the show in New York, Los Angeles and London.
This hilariously witty, and often moving, collection of tales gives voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories.
“Ensler breaks taboos by talking, talking and talking some more – stripping fear and shame from what she celebrates here. It makes for quite a party…..funny, outrageous, emotionally affecting and occasionally angry. The Vagina Monologues confronts words to demystify and disarm them. In so doing, Ensler disarms the audience too” – Associated PressR“Probably the most important piece of political theatre this decade” – New York Times
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS PRODUCTION CONTAINS VERY STRONG LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL CONTENT - UNSUITABLE FOR PERSONS UNDER 16 YEARS.

Merrily We Roll Along

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.

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)

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.

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!

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! Will Jasper win the day, and the hand of the Princess Pamilla (Serena Gilberthorpe), for a purr-fect ending with the help of Puss (Josephine Kelly) and Fairy Girdle (Helena Jodrell)? Thereby hangs a tail!

28th January - 1st February 2020

'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.

UK
Leicestershire


Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Box Office: 01509 231914 http://www.loughboroughtownhall.co.uk/events/2020/01/28/mack_and_mabel

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!

Box Office: 07475 634 474 / Email: thurrockcourtsplayers@live.co.uk or https://www.thurrockcourtsplayers.co.uk/whats-on/

30th January - 1st February 2020 7:45pm

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.
