    Jack and the Beanstalk

    Sign Of The Times

    From the author of such popular classics as ‘Neville’s Island’, ‘The Flint Street Nativity’and ‘Calendar Girls’,comes a funny,moving and ingenious comedy.

    Frank is a would-be spy novelist and Head of Installation at Forshaws, a commercial lettering factory. His reluctant teenage trainee Alan is more interested in listening to music and dreaming of great things for his band ‘Lizard’ than following Frank’s instructions on how to install bracketing systems.

    As they attempt to fix the company name in giant letters on the side of its building, it becomes apparent that the letters are supposed to spell something wholly unexpected - resulting in a change of direction for both men.

    The second act moves the action on three years and with their roles reversed, the pair soon find themselves in familiar territory when an emergency prompts them to confront some uncomfortable truths.

    This gem of a comedy represents Tim Firth at his laugh-out-loud best.

    Veronica's Room

    This chilling mystery thriller by the author of Rosemary's Baby, Deathtrap and The Boys From Brazil explores the thin line between fantasy and reality, madness and murder.

    It is 1973 and students Susan and Larry are invited to visit the mansion home of the Brabissant family by dissolute caretakers the lonely Mackeys when they meet by chance in a restaurant.

    The Mackeys are struck by Susan's strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long-dead daughter of the family for whom they work. Susan is gradually induced to impersonate Veronica in order to provide comfort to the only living Brabissant,Veronica’s ailing and addled sister who still believes Veronica is alive.

    But as soon as she is dressed in Veronica's clothes, Susan finds herself locked in Veronica’s room and trapped in the role of Veronica. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan?

    This spine-chilling tale of betrayal, illusion and identity will keep you guessing to the last.

    The Lion The Witch & the Wardrobe

    A Youth Theatre Production

    C.S.Lewis' classic story Dramatised by Adrian Mitchell. Music by Shaun Davey

    A musical adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ classic childrens’ story.

    Following recent successful adaptations of Grimm’s Tales and Tales from Oz, Grove Park’s talented Youth Section presents a musical adaptation of C.S. Lewis's classic children's story.

    The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe tells the story of four children - Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan, who are evacuated from London during the Blitz to stay at the home of the Professor. Lucy stumbles across a mysterious wardrobe while exploring the house - and discovers a gateway to another world.

    This incredible land - known as Narnia - is under the spell of the wicked White Witch and very quickly the children find themselves in the middle of a deadly battle between the forces of good and evil.

    This play features an original musical score created for the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon. It promises to be a fantastic addition to the Youth Section’s growing list of impressive productions.

    Just Like That

    Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, misfiring magic, trademark fez and quick-fire gags made him an international star.

    "Just Like That!" embarks on a nationwide tour after sell-out success at the West End's Museum of Comedy. This all-encapsulating show features John Hewer (Tony Hancock, Hancock's Half Hour - The 'Lost' Episodes) giving "a perfect illusion of time travel" and delivering "nuances both obvious and subtle" as the man in the fez.

    Complete with live musical accompaniment, this critically acclaimed tribute show is full of magic and mirth and is the perfect celebration of Britain's favourite comedian.

    Just Like That

    Just The Ticket

    From Peter Quilter, the writer of the hilarious relationship comedy ‘Duets’ and the brilliantly funny ‘Glorious’ (recently made into a film starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant) comes a story of love, life, loneliness and one very special lady.

    Susan is an eccentric sixty-year-old who decides to celebrate her birthday by repeating a journey to Australia she made with a group of friends when she was 20.

    Now she is travelling alone and carrying the excess baggage of 40 years of bittersweet experience which she recounts with wit and charm as she tells her unique story and slowly starts to write the next chapter.

    Just the Ticket is an unexpected, poignant and often hilarious trip through the life and loves of a remarkable woman - and proof to us all that it’s never too late for adventure - and maybe even for true love!

    Charley's Aunt

    It is Commemoration Week in Oxford, 1892. Jack Chesney loves Kitty Verdun and Charley Wykeham loves Amy Spettigue. To impress the objects of their affection, the boys invite the ladies to meet Charley's exotic and wealthy aunt Donna Lucia, who comes from Brazil, "where the nuts come from".

    But when Donna Lucia cancels her visit at the last minute, the boys turn in desperation to their feckless Oxford undergrad pal Lord Fancourt Babberley (Babbs to his friends), dressing him in a black satin skirt, bloomers and wig.

    All proceeds well, especially for Babbs who enjoys the attentions of his pals’ girls, until the real Donna Lucia appears, concealing her own identity and creating chaos for all concerned.

    Brandon Thomas’ classic farce is one of the great plays of the English stage.

    Fresh from a West End revival, this is a wonderful slice of life in a bygone age, as fast and funny today as it was on its debut 125 years ago.
