Take a look at the exciting shows to follow in our current season.
Wendy and Peter Pan – Wed 9th – Sun 13th Jan 2019 &
Wed 16th – Sat 19th Jan 2019
By Ella Hickson
Directed by – Debs Brooks
Ella Hickson’s critically acclaimed reworking of J M Barrie’s classic tale of ‘Peter Pan’ puts the female characters in the forefront of the action. We follow Wendy on her journey of discovery from Nursery to Neverland. Both heart breaking and side splitting, this joyous adaptation takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions as the Darlings are transported to a world of pirates, crocodiles and lost children. Originally performed by a cast of adults, this delightful production is an ideal vehicle for the traditional joint cast of adults and youth at The Courtyard Theatre.
The Ladykillers – Mon 25th Feb – Sat 2nd Mar 2019
By Graham Linehan
Directed by – Lauren Milsom and Noel Harris
Based on the classic screenplay by William Rose, this is a hilarious new version of The Ladykillers, written by Graham Linehan (IT Crowd, Father Ted, Black Books). Professor Marcus and his gang rent a room in Mrs Wilberforce’s lopsided house. Posing as amateur musicians, their real aim is to involve the unwitting Mrs Wilberforce in a robbery. However, despite Marcus’s meticulous planning she discovers their deceit and is left at the mercy of five desperate men with only her parrot General Gordon to help her.
