GaGa - The Ultimate Tribute to Queen

gaga-queen-tributeSaturday 16 May 2015

Performed by a multi-award winning band who have headlined the 'International Guitar Festival' on several occasions, this is a Queen show like no other.

From numerous Queen Conventions to TV appearances, GaGa have consistently proved why they are so highly rated by critics and audiences alike. There are no wigs, no make-up and definitely no false moustaches but instead, a host of massive Queen songs played like they were meant to be.

"Stunning" - Official Queen Fan Club
"Superb" - Brian May

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

josephWednesday 21 October - Saturday 24 October 2015

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colours comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favourite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves grovelling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

Evening performances start 7.30pm with doors at 7pm
Saturday Matinée starts 2.15pm with doors at 1.45pm

Tickets: Adults £13, Children & Concessions £11, Family ticket £42

One day she tells him they are so poor that he must take the cow to market to get some food. On the way Jack meets a man who gives Jack five magic beans in exchange for the cow. His angry mother throws the beans into the garden. Overnight the beans grow into a huge beanstalk and Jack climbs up. At the top he finds a castle where a giant lives.
