The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. By Noah Smith. October 2020
This is the classic horror story with a twist. Dr. Jekyll is a brilliant young scientist who is impressed with the duality of nature and decides that this must also be true with man. He proceeds to invent a special formula which transforms him to the evil Mr. Hyde.
Moon Over Buffalo. By Ken Ludwig. March 2021
The hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950’s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.
Frosted the Panto. By Warren McWilliams
The audience will probably be familiar with the storyline, given the panto’s affinity to a certain children’s film with a vaguely similar title, but it’s been given the full panto treatment, and so it’s packed with gags, new characters and is something totally new.
The story tells the tale of two Princesses as one struggles to come to terms with the magical powers she has been given. Can they survive the snow storm? Will they ever find true love? Or will their kingdom be taken over by a wicked Prince? Watch the show to find out how strong the bond between sisters can be and that they’ll stop at nothing to look after each other.
Featuring all the traditional elements of pantomime this new show promises to warm the hearts of children of all ages and adults alike.
The Rocky Horror Show. Book, Music and Lyrics by Richard O'Brien. June 2021
In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”
Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper, and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever..
