Our fun-filled, hilarious family panto!

When the wicked Squire also discovers the cat can talk, he decides he wants the cat for himself. Aunt Maisie arrives to help Mark with the mill, but in the meantime he has fallen in love with the beautiful Princess Rose. Not knowing what to do or which way to turn, help arrives unexpectedly from Mark's magical cat.
Suitable for ages 3+.

Chameleon Theatre presents
Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves (The Pantomime)
by Nigel Holmes

A tale from the Arabian Nights set in old Cairo. A nasty villain with his band of thieves. A poor family who will become rich because the Spirit of the Desert weaves her spell. A magic cave with a secret password. There are pots full of thieves and a scary Egyptian mummy. Oh help! It's behind you.
And, oh yes, I nearly forgot the dancing camel.

Bishopstoke Players presents
Beauty and the Beast
by Charles Philip

Bishopstoke Players present a traditional family pantomime next January with our production of “Beauty and the Beast”.

This enchanting tale of heroic adventure, true love, fun and frivolity is destined to be our most beautiful and beastly panto yet!

Will Annabelle ever find true love? Will Gaston ever marry Annabelle? Will the Twinkle twins catch up with Gaston? Will the Beast and his staff have their curse lifted before the daisy runs out of petals? And just who will clean up after the horse…?

Find out the answers to these questions and more at Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from Wednesday 23rd to Saturday 26th January 2019 at 7.30pm, with a matinee on Saturday 26th at 2.30pm.

A Bunch of Amateurs
by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman

Hollywood star plays Lear at Stratford! But it’s with a bunch of amateurs and not in Stratford-upon-Avon. What could possibly go wrong?

Comfort Me with Apples
by Nell Leyshon

The loss of English country ways?
Winner Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright.
Shortlisted for Susan Smith Blackburn Award.
Irene's husband has died suddenly and she's falling apart, just like the West Country cider orchard where they lived for 40 years. Irene is confused and agitated, but she's determined not to relax her iron grip over her middle-aged son Roy, and her simple-minded brother, Len. In this heightened atmosphere of autumnal decay, and the demise of an ancient way of life, old family wounds are re-opened. Money has run out and the banks are threatening to foreclose. Then Roy's twin sister Brenda arrives, along with his former girlfriend Linda - both of them expelled from the house years before.
Can the family heal their wounds or, like the neglected orchard, has their relationship shrivelled beyond repair?

Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons
by Sam Steiner

Say what you think.
The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there were a limit? Oli and Bernadette are about to find out. Set in a world where a new hush law has limited each person’s speech to 140 words per day, it explores a young couple's struggles to communicate – both before and after the law comes into effect. This clever play is about what we say and how we say it; about the things we can only hear in the silence; and how inequalities are intensified by austerity in any form, even linguistics. Sam Steiner’s debut play premiered at Warwick Arts Centre in 2015, before appearing at Latitude Festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Camden People’s Theatre, London.
