Our Spring 2015 show is...
Rent is a rock musical with music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson, loosely based on Giacomo Puccini's opera La bohème.
Showing Wednesday 18th to Saturday 21st March, 7.30pm
RENT is a powerful, emotional, compelling rock operetta based on the opera LA BOHEME. It centres on the relationship between two artists struggling to earn a living (as in the opera) and sustain the lifestyle of modern bohemia. We encounter their friendships and relationships as they experience love and loss. We see them battle against the corporate world trying to change their neighbourhood and the way they live. The musical explores some hard hitting issues including Aids and Drugs but its main focus is the importance of community. Because of this I would love to work with a diverse cast which will reflect a true community in terms of all ages and experience. The music is stunning and the narrative is emotionally charged. Ultimately the show is a celebration of living in the moment and making every moment count.
“NO DAY BUT TODAY”
Our Autumn 2014 show was...
To commemorate the start of the first world war, we presented our autumn show
Oh! What a Lovely War.
Showing Wednesday 8th to Saturday 11th October, 7.30pm
The scheme for a chronicle of the First World War, told through songs and documents in the form of a seaside pierrot entertainment of the period, was devised and presented by Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop at the Theatre Royal, Stratford East, London, in 1963.
It was the result of close co-operation between writer, actors and director, where the whole team participated in detailed research into the period and in the creative task of bringing their material to life in theatrical terms.
It won the acclaim of audiences and critics and the Grand Prix of the Theatre des Nations festival in Paris in 1963 and has become a classic of the modern theatre
