BERYL by Maxine Peake

 

Beryl, which celebrates the extraordinary sporting achievements of this inspirational cyclist, has been specially commissioned as an adaptation from Maxine Peake's acclaimed 2012 Radio 4 play and marks her stage-writing debut. 

It was 1954 when Beryl Charnock met keen cyclist Charlie Burton. In those days they cycled in clubs and once Beryl started she was smitten, not only with Charlie, but by the thrill and freedom found on two wheels. Beryl was better than good, she was the best, and she was determined to stay that way.

THE SWING COMMANDERS

The Swing Commanders take well crafted songs from the thirties to the fifties, from American Songbook classics to Western Swing and Novelty songs, and overlay them with lush vocal harmonies and hot solos. The rhythms, varying from ballads to jive to quicksteps, are great for dances, theatre shows, and parties.

The Swing Commanders have appeared, often headlining, at most of the UK’s top Vintage and Country Music festivals. They are loved by fans of Jazz, Country, Swing and Blues, and find it easy to fill dancehalls with lindy hoppers, modern jivers, line, partner and social dancers. They play all over the UK, regularly tour Europe and when they can, cross the pond to visit the US!

The band members have a wealth of musical experience, from bar room to classical concert hall, as well as an understanding of dance and theatre. This results in a stage show that is technically precise and wildly entertaining. Everyone involved loves performing the music, and this shines through.

OUR DAY OUT

 by Willy Russell

Songs and music by Bob Eaton, Chris Mellor and Willy Russell

 

Some underprivileged schoolchildren are taken on a day's outing by their teachers.  The children boisterously rampage through a roadside café, a zoo, Conway Castle and a beach.  

 

A joyous celebration of the joys and agonies of growing up, but also a sharp pointer to the depressing present (1970s) and empty future, for a day out is as much as these children can expect.

NOSFERATU 

 

Nosferatu is arguably the film that gave birth to the horror genre.

Notable as the first cinematic interpretation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, its combination of expressionistic acting and unforgettable images render it just as powerful and unsettling today as when it first thrilled cinema goers 100 years ago.

 

Chris Green’s new score was commissioned by English Heritage for a live outdoor screening of the film at Dracula’s spiritual home of Whitby Abbey. The music is a haunting blend of electronic and acoustic instruments performed by the composer and combined with FW Murnau’s iconic images makes for a genuinely remarkable and unique cinematic experience.

René’s mother-in-law, Fanny, objects to the radio used to communicate with London being hidden under her bed. No one can understand what Officer Crabtree (the British agent disguised as a Policeman) is saying. Michelle of the Resistance has a series of increasingly hare-brained proposals. Herr Flick of the Gestapo, Colonel Von Strohm and Captain Geering all have their own plans to get hold of the money, and Lieutenant Gruber still wants to take René away for a ride in his little tank… The cash, a set of forged notes and a bomb all end up hidden in identical camembert cheeses. What could possibly go wrong?
