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.

Box Office: www.hamptonhilltheatre.org.uk/hhp-calendar or 0845 519 4546

27 – 31 Oct 2020

The charming, hilarious, and original new Broadway musical It Shoulda Been You, invites you to a wedding that you’ll never forget at Hampton Hill Theatre next March, where anything that can go wrong does, and love pops up in mysterious places.
This madcap musical comedy is a modern farce. In a world where nothing is what it seems, religions collide, Machiavellian plots are revealed, promises are broken, secrets are exposed, and hope springs from the most unlikely of places.
The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And, when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride!”. It’s up to the sister of the bride to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after in this musical comedy.
Nominated for six Outer Critics Circle Awards, three Drama League Awards and three Drama Desk Awards, BROS Theatre Company is delighted to present this wonderful show as part of its 2020 schedule.

The Thrill of Love

Author: Amanda Whittington

The Thrill of Love

UK
Oxfordshire


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

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


25th - 28th November 2020 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.

February 10 - 13 2021 7:30pm

Kenneth and Hilary have been married nearly twenty years. But as middle age approaches, Ken finds himself in the arms of another woman. At first, Laura appears to be everything that is missing from Ken’s life with Hilary – young, slim, attractive and a vibrant free spirit – but his little fling quickly becomes desperately out of hand. Juggling the affections of two women, his world becomes a tangle of lies and deceit. Ken denies Hilary’s increasing suspicions. Forced to confront the truth he leaves Hilary for Laura. Only one problem – Laura can’t cook.
As time passes, Kenneth mourns the loss of Sunday roasts and haute cuisine, and the comforts of the settled life he once knew. When Hilary invites Ken and Laura over for dinner, he readily accepts, unaware of what delicacies Hilary plans to serve. Told through a series of flashbacks. Highly entertaining exploration of the old adage “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”!
