So, if you think you're good at Charades, come along, enjoy mince pies, sausage rolls and mulled wine and try to outwit your friends with impossible challenges for them to mime. If you don't think you're any good, come along anyway and watch us all making fools of ourselves!
Hay Fever by Noel Coward
Directed by Louise Adams
4th - 7th February
Hay Fever is set in the hall of the Bliss family home. The eccentric Blisses—Judith, a recently retired stage actress, David, a self-absorbed novelist, and their two equally unconventional children— live in a world where reality slides easily into fiction. Upon entering this world, the unfortunate weekend guests—a proper diplomat, a shy flapper, an athletic boxer, and a fashionable sophisticate— are repeatedly thrown into melodramatic scenes wherein their hosts profess emotions and react to situations that do not really exist. The resulting comedic chaos ends only when the tortured visitors tip-toe out of the door.
A Berlin Cabaret
22nd March 20115 at 7:30pm
A night of great classical cabaret with a unique edge. Come along and visit the Berlin Cabaret and hear the purring songs of Marlene Dietrich alongside lyrical soprano melodies. This is bold, sassy and funny… Let the Bluebirds entertain you!
The Bluebirds are singing duo Sasha Herriman and Tami Tal and for this concert they are working with talented pianist, John Human. Together they combine classical singing and comedy with their own unique twist of irreverence.
Sasha and Tami take you to the true heart of cabaret with its cutting edge, glamour and fun. They bring songs of the era to life: music by Weill, Hollaender and Spoliansky side by side with great operatic favourites.
