Rebecca's Summer Concert
Rebecca Newman - The People's Soprano
Saturday 2 June 2012
Rebecca is returning to the Joseph Rowntree Theatre following the tremendous success of her concert last year. This time she will be joined by the fabulous award-winning choir Spirit of Harmony and professional ballet dancer, Laura White. She will be singing some old favourites, like Time to Say Goodbye and Love Never Dies, but she will also be debuting some new songs she has never before sung in public ahead of her next classical album, due out in 2013. There will even be a little 'nod' to the Olympics...
Rebecca has sold over 10,000 albums and has been featured on TV and radio across the UK. A cheque presentation for the fundraising Rebecca has achieved so far will be made to Childline (part of the NSPCC) on the night.
Not to be missed!
Bazaar and Rummage
A touching comedy about three housebound agoraphobic women
Thursday 14 June to Saturday 16 June 2012
Set in a church hall in Acton, London, this is the funny but moving story of a group of agoraphobic women who, as part of a self help group, decide to break through their troubled and insular lives for one day at least by bravely staging a bazaar and rummage sale. Sue Townsend, author of the very popular Adrian Mole books, has crafted a very entertaining, witty and poignant play of ordinary people striving to overcome all obstacles in an effort to rejoin society.
Gwenda, an ex-agoraphobic, leads a self-help group of three women, Katrina, Bell Bell and Margaret who have been unable to leave their homes for a variety of reasons. She forces them to help at a local bazaar, enlisting the support of Fliss, a trainee social-worker. While sorting through the rummage their individual fears erupt but calm is restored by the ever-sensible Fliss. As they leave the hall it is apparent their agoraphobia is not cured but they have made the effort.
Stepping Out - The Musical
Wednesday 20 June to Saturday 23 June 2012
Stepping Out, which enjoyed a hugely successful West End run and won Evening Standard Best Comedy Award for 1984, is a warm and very funny play about the lives of a group of women (and one man) attending a weekly tap-dance class in a dingy church hall. As the play progresses the dancing improves to such an extent that by the climax, (a grand charity show performance), they have been transformed into triumphant tappers, worthy of any chorus line. The musical version lifts the story to a new dimension.
Now for two nights only
