We Found Love and an Exquisite Set of Porcelain Figurines Aboard the SS Farndale Avenue

We Found Love and an Exquisite Set of Porcelain Figurines Aboard the SS Farndale Avenue

Dragon Theatre Company’s June production is the wonderfully madcap ‘We Found Love and an Exquisite Set of Porcelain Figures Aboard the SS Farndale Avenue’ by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr. 

The ladies of Farndale Avenue Townswomen’s Guild feature in a series of delightful plays that preceded the likes of ‘Peter Pan Goes Wrong’ and ‘The Gone Wrong Show’, and have proved time and again that their determination will not be thwarted by the disintegration of costumes, sets and, occasionally, memory. 

Flushed by their previous successes, the stalwart veterans of the Dramatic Society are poised to conquer yet another dramatic idiom: their current production sails the luxury ocean liner SS Farndale Avenue into the world of thirties musical comedy, proving that the age of elegance, glamour and enchantment may be a little creaky, but is certainly not yet dead. 

Doors open at 7.30pm. 

Wheelchair-friendly premises. The entrance is opposite the Co-Op supermarket in Moray Way, RM1 4YD. 

Tickets: £10 & £8.

Spamalot

Spamalot

SPAMALOT retells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail.

The 2005 Broadway production was nominated for fourteen Tony Awards of which it won three including Best Musical and was followed by two successful West End runs.

Inspired by the classic comedy film, Monty Python and the holy Grail, SPAMALOT features shenanigans including a chorus line of dancing divas, legless knights, men in tights, killer rabbits and a flatulent Frenchman.

Throughout the show Arthur, travelling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad. Besides the rabbits and farting Frenchman, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight and the Knights who say Ni.

After arriving in Las Vegas-inspired Camelot, the knights are contacted by the voice of God who wants them to search for the Holy Grail., After some silly encounters and surprising discoveries, Arthur and the knights end up finding the Grail in an unexpected place.

“Spamalot” is presented through special arrangement with and all authorised performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW). www.theatricalrights.co.uk

We know only that there will be handbags…..

Nell Gwynn

Nell Gwynn

Huntingdon Drama Club return with the Olivier award-winning comedy Nell Gwynn by Jessica Swale. This “bawdy, playful and highly entertaining” play runs at the Commemoration Hall, Huntingdon from 22-25 November. The action takes place in the 1660s where Charles II has returned from exile and is restored to the throne after the puritan rule of Oliver Cromwell. The merry monarch re-opens the theatres and decrees that women are to be allowed to perform on stage. Enter our heroine, the poor orange-seller Nell Gwynn, who under the tutelage of the King’s Company becomes a star of London theatre. Praised by none other than Samuel Pepys for her comic performances she soon catches the eye of the King himself and becomes his most famous mistress. It’s a true story of rags to royalty – a real life Cinderella. Written in a modern comedy style and first performed in 2016, the play echoes the likes of Shakespeare In Love, Upstart Crow and Blackadder. Full of big laughs, colourful characters and live music, Nell Gwynn is not to be missed. Directed by HDC chairman Dean Laccohee, tickets are on sale from Monday 2 October via Ticket Source and the play runs from 22-25 November with two performances on Saturday.

A Bunch of Amateurs

A Bunch of Amateurs

Washed-up Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is a sleepy Suffolk village with a Bunch of Amateurs!

11-14 October with a matinee on Saturday starting at 2.30.
Synopsis:
Keen to boost his flagging career, washed-up Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village and the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from being bulldozed to make way for executive homes rather than RSC stalwarts.
Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians – who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people… along with his inner Lear!

Sheila’s Island

Sheila’s Island

Somehow, while participating in a company team building weekend in the Lake District, Sheila has unwittingly stranded her team of middle managers on an island in the middle of Derwent Water. They are not amused!  No food, soaking wet, mobile battery dead and some very odd noises in the undergrowth. Is someone stalking them?  Are there murderous pike in the lake? Why won’t Julie’s husband return her call? And why does the rescue boat have a disco on it?  From the writer of Calendar Girls and Kinky Boots comes a comedy about fog, friendships, survival and one cold sausage.

Blithe Spirit

Blithe Spirit

“I long ago came to the conclusion that nothing has ever been definitely proved about anything.” Have you ever been haunted by your past? Charles Condimine is. Somewhat more literally than most actually. The cantankerous writer and his new wife, Ruth, are dealing with the less than wanted attentions of Charles’ former (and rather late) wife Elvira. There must be a solution to this mess, surely. In walks the “happy medium” Madame Arcati. Problem solved…right?

Directed by Margaret Reading, Noel Coward’s hilarious farce hits The Blue Room stage this summer. Sarcastic ghosts, flying crockery and Coward’s famous turn of phrase will have you laughing all the way through.
