Three Little Pigs

Posted on: August 9th, 2013 by admin No Comments

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS a very curly musical tale is a “great big little West End show” for audiences of three years and up from Stiles and Drewe the award-winning writers of the international smash hits MARY POPPINS and HONK!
He can huff and puff until the cows comes home, but will the Big Bad Wolf get the better of the three little superstar piglets in this brand new retelling of the classic story?
Full of catchy songs, jokes and japes for little ones and parents alike, this endearing musical will leave you squealing with glee and howling with laughter.
For ages 3+. May not be suitable for vegetarians.

Corpse

Posted on: July 26th, 2013 by admin No Comments

By Gerald Moon (2002)

Gerald Moon’s wonderful comedy thriller starred Mark McGann, Colin Baker and Louise Jameson and was directed by Robin Herford. Sibling rivalry is taken to the extreme when Evelyn, a ‘resting’ actor engages the genial but shady Major Powell to dispose of his identical twin brother in order to assume his persona and inherit his riches. The play is packed full with surprises, theatrical tricks and hokum as one actor plays both of the twins and sometimes appears to be seen as both characters on stage at the same time.
