Dirty Rotten Scoundrels | 13th - 17th November 2018

Our November 2018 production will be 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels'. Book by Jeffrey Lane and Music and Lyrics by David Yazbeck.

Based on the popular 1988 MGM film, this show takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress, Christine Colgate, wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!

Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.

9 to 5 - The Musical | 26th - 30th November 2019

We are pleased to announce that our November 2019 production will be '9 to 5 The Musical'!

Based on the 1980's hit movie of the same name, 9 to 5 tells the story of three female coworkers who concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. With original music and lyrics by Dolly Parton including her well known song 9 to 5, this show features a large cast with a variety of different character roles!

More information is soon to follow.
