Our day out - 16th - 18th November 2017
Our next show, to be staged over the period Thursday to Saturday 16th to 18th November 2017, is a stage play based on the 1977 BBC television play "Our Day Out" by Willy Russell. Willy Russell is famous for his Liverpool based plays including “Educating Rita” and ‘Blood Brothers” which also features, as our show will, children played by adults.
The musical is the story of students from an inner-city school in Liverpool who go on a trip to Conwy Castle in Wales. Mrs Kay teaches a class of illiterate pupils, called the "Progress Class". These are not well-behaved students and matters are made worse when the disciplinarian, deputy head teacher, Mr Briggs joins and tells them they are no longer allowed to go to Alton towers, where they had originally planned to go. Instead they go to Wales. On the journey, they make some stops: at a petrol station, a zoo, the beach, Conway castle and a fun fair. They end up losing one of the children which causes havoc!

Nell's Belles - 22nd - 24th March 2018
Our next Junior show is Nell's Belles by Kjarten Podkitt. 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!
Tickets go on sale from 3rd February 2018.
