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.
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!" 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.
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!
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.
But it's not all doom and gloom; Alice Fitzwarren, Idle Jack and, of course, pantomime Sarah the Cook will be on hand to add magic, mirth and mayhem to the proceedings.
Will Dick defeat King Rat and save the day? Will Dick and Alice live happily ever after? Will Sarah the Cook and Idle Jack get in the way somehow?
Well, you'll have to join us at Grove Park Theatre's 37th Annual Pantomime to find out. We pride ourselves in offering a fantastic night for all the family aged 5 to 95.
