Latest News About Our Upcoming Productions For Both Youth And Community Theatre Groups
Both our Youth and Community (the adults!) theatres put on a show for your enjoyment. In 2018 we have 3 separate groups performing. The Community theatre will be performing Bad Girls whilst the Teens (Teens with 'tude) will be performing 'Wonderland High.' Our Youngest group ( Reach 4 the Stars) will be performing 'Christmas is forever.' More details will follow shortly.
Bad Girls the Musical stars Wayne Morse as Jim Fenner, Sarah Moulder-Hurdesfield as Sylvia (Bodybag) Hollamby and Francesca Brown as Shell Dockley amongst other talented performers in the cast.
This lovely comedy musical brings to life the wonderful characters of the women prisoners of Larkhall prison. The back stories of the characters and fantastic musical numbers take the audience through a journey of right and wrongs that can happen inside a women’s prison. Based on the cult television series of Bad Girls, it’s set in the fictional HMP Larkhall, it’s the story of new idealistic Wing Governor Helen Stewart and her battles with the entrenched old guard of Officer Jim Fenner and his sidekick Sylvia Hollamby. It also follows the love story that develops between Helen and charismatic inmate Nikki Wade. Other featured characters include Shell Dockley and her runner Denny Blood, old-timer Noreen Biggs, The Two Julies and the ultimate Top Dog, King-of-Gangland’s missus, Yvonne Atkins.
A tragic death on the wing – in which Jim Fenner is implicated – leads to an angry protest from the women and forces Helen and Nikki to their opposite sides of the bars. But when it’s clear that Helen stands to lose her job over Jim Fenner’s misdeeds, the race is on for the women to nail Jim once and for all.
Wonderland High the Musical starring Robyn Greeves as Alice and Josh Stares as Arthur are amongst other very talented young people in the cast.
The first day in a new school can be difficult but for Arthur Bloom, it may prove impossible. Newly relocated from Kansas City, Arthur discovers that Wonderland High is not your ordinary high school. Thrown into a school where croquet is bigger than football, the school store sells much more than paper and pens, and lockers hold a lot more than books, Arthur finds that being “cool” is the only rule... and even eating lunch in the cafetorium is an ordeal. As he makes new friends (and a couple of enemies), Arthur learns to stand up for himself and helps others learn the importance of self-reliance and commitment to ones’ principles and passions.
This production is filled with an assortment of characters that are based on Lewis Carroll's creations – like Principal Cheshire, zany Matt Adder; April May (who had her hair done in March); Dora Mouskowitz (who can barely stay awake); Lily, Rose, Daisy and Violet (the Garden Glees – an all-girls a capella group); and Alice (of course!), Wonderland High is a wonderful musical for all the family with lots of toe tapping songs.

Christmas is Forever Agent 00ps – starring Zoe Brookes as Blonde, Leon Conway as Scarymonger plus some very talented elves and Henchpersons.
Jane Blonde, double 'O' PS (OOPS!), licensed to do whatever, goes to rescue Father Christmas from the clutches of the evil Scarymonger.
His cunning plan is to flood the Christmas scene with counterfeit Santas who are SO nasty that nobody will ever want Christmas again. All this because Scarymonger did not get presents when he was a little boy... but then he was a very naughty little boy!
Christmas Is Forever is an exciting production with a James Bond connection - expect all your old favourite 007 type characters!
The story line is combined with some truly inspirational songs with touches of Madness and the Bee Gees.
