Forthcoming Shows


27th April - 2 May 2020

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls is based on the tales of Damon Runyan and set in 1950s New York.

Gambler Nathan Detroit is trying to set up the biggest craps game in New York, while avoiding the authorities and his long-time fiancee, Miss Adelaide. Fellow gambler Sky Masterson might help, but he's got his eye on straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Packed with great tunes, including "Luck Be A Lady Tonight", "A Bushel And A Peck" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat", Guys and Dolls is a toe-tapping treat.



2nd - 7th November 2020

Based on a popular American comic strip, Annie is one of the world's best-loved family-friendly musicals, with such classic songs as "Tomorrow" and "It's a Hard Knock Life".

Little orphan Annie is plucky and positive, despite living in a harsh orphanage in 1930s New York. In a series of fun-filled adventures, she escapes the hard-knock life of the orphanage, befriends a stray pooch, is adopted by the billionaire Oliver Warbucks, and even wins the heart of the President - and the audience - foiling the plans of the nasty villains along the way.


Thoroughly Modern Millie

April - May 2021

We have just announced our first show for 2021!

Thoroughly Modern Millie is the stage adaptation of the 1967 film musical, which is itself an adaptation of the stage musical "Chrysanthemum"!

Set in the Roaring 1920s, it's the story of small town Millie who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love - a thoroughly modern girl!
