Play of the Month
extremely freely adapted from R. L. Stevenson
Nigel TimmsWhen Billy Bones dies of the black spot at Jim Hawkins' Inn, Jim (who's a bit of a lad), together with the Very Upper-Class Squire Trelawny and the equally Stiff Upper-Lip Dr. Livesey, find his secret treasure map and resolve to get rich quick. They hire a ship, whose trusty crew turn out to be pirates, led by the monopod parrot fancier, Long John Silver. Jim's mother, a formidable lady, has stowed away on the ship, causing all manner of complications, which are in no way reduced once the island is reached and the true identity of Ben Gunn - custodian of a collection of rare historic coins and patron of amateur dramatics - is finally revealed. Calamity and hilarity compete throughout the piece but all the fatal episodes are rapidly cleared up by the two ubiquitous Undertakers for whom business remains good.

The 'Reel' Movie Musical
Book and Lyrics by DIANE BROOKS
Music Composed and Arranged by NEIL STEVENS
A young boy called Joe, who is obsessed with films, is given a special TV remote control by his friends, which unbeknownst to them, magically transports him into the films he is watching, unable to return to real life. Trapped in a world of fantasy, he journeys through several genres in an adventure fraught with danger, encountering along the way Cowboys, Pirates, Wizards and Aliens to name a few. His three friends realise what has happened and go in after him to try and bring him back, but are always one step behind, thus resulting in some rather awkward and farcical situations, as they get caught up in the action of the various films.

BLACKOUT OPERATION PIED PIPER
Mark Wheeller's wartime musical focusing on the plight of the evacuees in this famous "operation" is being re-launched under this new title (from one of the catchy songs) as part of the 70 years anniversary of the start of World War II. Previously known simply as BLACKOUT it was Mark's most performed musical in 2008.
" The evocation of the period was so good that I spent the first act waiting for Vera Lynne's entrance." Hugh David: Times Educational Supplement.
