The Ghost Train
By Arnold Ridley
Saturday 5 – Saturday 12 October 2019
Written by Dads' Army's very own Godfrey, this play revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country station one evening.
Despite the station master trying to persuade them to leave the site, they refuse – citing the lack of alternative accommodation for several miles around as their reason. He warns them, however, of the supernatural danger of a spectral old railway carriage train that sometimes haunts the line at night, bringing death to all who set eyes upon it. Incredulous of his story, the group still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a terrifying night at the station.
This is a Halloween tale bound to raise the hairs on your neck.
A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Karen Louise Hebden
Saturday 7 December – Saturday 14 December 2019
Charles Dickens’ timeless classic is brought to life in a joyous adaptation by Karen Louise Hebden.
One bitter Christmas Eve, a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts. Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to, and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?
All the iconic moments are here from this timeless epic, and we have gone to great lengths to find the most miserable "Baa Humbug" actor we can find and stuffed him full of Christmas Spirits.
By Richard Harris
Saturday 15 – Saturday 22 February 2020
They're back! The ladies from 'Ladies Day' and 'Ladies Down Under' are joined by some new friends to bring you this hilarious and touching play by Richard Harris.
'Stepping Out' centres around eight individuals from disparate backgrounds, with differing motivations who all attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy church hall.
Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions and showing little co-ordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness that culminates is a spectacular dance number.
The Road to Nab End
By William Woodruff
Adapted by Phlip Goulding
Saturday 28 March – Saturday 4 April 2020
A true taste of Lancashire, 'The Road To Nab End' chronicles the early life of William Woodruff, who grew up in Lancashire through the turbulent times of a crippling economy, poverty and social unrest of the 1920s.
What makes this play particularly emotive and powerful is that we experience these historic events through Woodruff’s childhood reflections.
