The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Share Share this!

Illyria presents

The Sorcerer's Apprentice

adapted by Oliver Gray

The original boy-wizard story, most famously told in Disney’s Fantasia, starring Mickey Mouse. Bored of his chores, the apprentice waves his wand and a broom magically fetches water. But he can’t find a spell to stop it. In desperation he saws it in half - and everything spirals out of control… This show features breathtaking magical illusions, non-stop laughter and more water then you have EVER seen in a play before! There’s a spectacular set from the designer of George’s Marvellous Medicine, amazing effects from the scenic builders of The Twits, the original music by Paul Dukas (as used in Fantasia) - and eye-popping magical illusions designed by the world famous illusionist Paul Daniels. Exciting, magical family fun for all ages 5+!

Duration 1hr 30min (inc 20 min interval)

The second half of the show picks up the pace and promises a barrage of block-buster hits that span the decades!

“If I didn’t know better I’d have said that was Neil Diamond singing!” - Pat Marsh, BBC

Britten's The Rape Of Lucretia

Share Share this!

Live From Glyndebourne's 2015 Festival

Britten's The Rape Of Lucretia

World class opera live via satellite from Glyndebourne! Fiona Shaw’s award-winning production of a dark British masterpiece. Britten’s extraordinarily tense and chilling treatment of this historic tale is explored in a brilliant production by Fiona Shaw, best known as an actress in films such as Harry Potter and TV series including True Blood. Lucretia is a model of fidelity among Roman wives until the Etruscan prince Tarquinius, provoked by his Roman army comrades, gallops back to Rome to ruin her virtue. Described as ‘opera at its most nakedly powerful’ by the Daily Telegraph, this production live from the 2015 Glyndebourne Festival will be conducted by Leo Hussain and performed by some of the most exciting British singers on stage today, including Christine Rice, Kate Royal, Allan Clayton and Duncan Rock.

‘searingly beautiful… (a) triumphant production’ The Observer

‘This may be a deeply unsettling evening but it’s a richly rewarding one too.’ The Stage

Mr Stink

Heartbreak Theatre presents

Mr Stink

by David Walliams

On a perfectly average afternoon, two restless souls unite on a bench in an average English town – one of them the lonely 12 year old Chloe and the other an incredibly smelly homeless man. Oh, and let’s not forget his loyal dog, the Duchess. Acting upon her curiosity and responding to her kindness, Chloe and Mr. Stink forge an extraordinary and rewarding friendship that takes them to the heady heights of live television and Downing Street via a garden shed. An outdoor show packed with fun, humour and a heart-warming message, Heartbreak Productions’ adaptation of Mr Stink from the infamous novel by David Walliams is suitable for the whole family to enjoy together.

Iolanthe

Share Share this!

Illyria present

Iolanthe

by Gilbert & Sullivan

In 2011 Illyria raised the bar for the major UK open-air touring theatre companies by becoming the first and only one to add Opera to its regular season. Gilbert and Sullivan's most magical comic opera is about Iolanthe, a fairy, who falls in love with a mortal. Many believe its sumptuous harmonies to be the most beautiful Sullivan wrote. It gets the complete Illyria treatment, faithfully performed by a reduced cast and accompanied by a Musical Director on keyboard. Despite the reduction in scale not a single word from WS Gilbert's libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan's score unsung. Following the runaway popularity of HMS Pinafore, The Mikado and The Pirates of Penzance, Illyria returns with another romantic summer opera to leave you with a song in your heart.

Running time (approx): 2hrs (including 20 minute interval) Suitable for: all ages 5+

Othello

Royal Shakespeare Company Live

Othello

Othello is the greatest general of his age. A fearsome warrior, loving husband and revered defender of Venice against its enemies. But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride. After more than a decade working in film and television on projects from Star Wars to Holby City, Hugh Quarshie returns to the RSC to play Shakespeare's Othello. He was last seen with us in Faust and Julius Caesar (1996). Hugh will play opposite Lucian Msamati in the role of Iago, returning to the RSC following his role as Pericles in 2006. The production is directed by Iqbal Khan (Much Ado About Nothing, 2012).

Heartbreak Theatre

Emma

by JaneAusten

Fall in love with Heartbreak Productions this summer as you relax with a picnic on a summer’s eve in front of Austen’s classic, ‘Emma’ and are transported back to a time when finding the perfect match was the order of the day. In true Heartbreak style, the adaptation of ‘Emma’ is introduced and performed by a group of artists who tell the story in the hope that the Romantic nature of Austen’s writing inspires their portraiture and landscape skills. As the play within a play unfolds, you’ll be entertained by the lovable, meddling Emma as she tries to match up her friends and fails miserably. Laugh at the non-stop chatter of Mrs Bates, the worrisome Mr Woodhouse, snobbish Mrs Elton and swoon for reluctant hero, Mr Knightley. Admire the wit and humour of Austen’s characters that are still recognisable and relevant today. Exploring themes of class, dating and friendship, there’s something for everyone in this pastoral rom-com straight from Regency England. Suitable for 8yrs+
