Nell's Belles - 22nd - 24th March 2018
Our next Junior show is Nell's Belles by Kjarten Poskitt. The Juniors will perform this from Thursday to Saturday 22nd to 24th March 2018.
It's the swinging 1660s. King Charles II wants nothing too heavy: politics are a bore. When Nell and her friends, from the local Bawdy house, join the new Drury Lane Theatre, Charles is delighted by their saucy songs and cheeky antics. Nell rises to stardom and she and Charles embark on one of the most infamous love stories. A whole army of Charladies and delectable seventeenth-century characters take us through the story of the affair that led to the Great Fire of London and the recovery from the plague; the jealousy and outrage of Charlie's rejected women and to political jiggery-pokery. This hilarious, easily-staged musical, with thirty-five speaking parts and a rock and roll score, should make learning history a little more fun - even if all this only probably happened. But then, anyone who claims to know it all can't have been there!

One Man two guvnors - 7th - 9th June 2018
Our next adult show is 'One man two guvnors', a show poularised by National Theatre staging in 2011 starring local boy, James Corden.
In 1963 and out-of-work skiffle player Francis Henshall becomes separately employed by two men – Roscoe Crabbe, a gangster, and Stanley Stubbers, an upper class twit. Francis tries to keep the two from meeting, in order to avoid each of them learning that Francis is also working for someone else. Complicating events, Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe in disguise, her twin brother Roscoe having been killed by her boyfriend, who is none other than Stanley. Complicating events still further is local mobster Charlie the Duck, who has arranged his daughter Pauline's engagement to Roscoe despite her preference for over-the-top amateur actor Alan Dangle. Even further complications are prompted by several letters, a very heavy trunk, several unlucky audience volunteers, an extremely elderly waiter and Francis' pursuit of his twin passions: Dolly, Charlie's feminist bookkeeper, and food.
Tickets for our show go on sale on Saturday 21st April 2018.
