Dunstable’s Grove Theatre is lining up a season of drama for 2015 – but before then there is an autumn packed with music, comedy and variety acts (oh, and the luscious Dreamboys!)
Autumn features the Beds venue’s entree into live screenings of major stage productions and first up is Billy Elliott: The Musical.
It will be followed by a live screening of the Royal Opera House’s I Due Foscari.
Immersion Theatre arrives in October for a 1960s version of Taming Of The Shrew.
But, in another first for the theatre, there is the introduction of the much anticipated 2015 Drama Season.
The Ghost Train and Stone Cold Murder are two thrillers that are set to make a chill run down your spine while Alan Ayckbourn’s Table Manners will have you laughing out loud.
Opera is represented by heart-warming and tear-jerking productions of Madama Butterfly and La Traviata.
QI’s resident dunderhead, Alan Davies, Cornish legend Jethro, Iranian Omid Djalili and Jim Davidson lead the funnymen while there is also the monthly Barnstormers sessions for rising stars of the comedy circuit.
There are also two comic plays – Su Pollard and
Cannon and Ball in Ha Ha Hood! and the return of the ever popular Stones in his Pockets?
Take a trip back to the 1970s with Think Floyd and Showaddywaddy; the best of the 80s with Jackson Live and the 90s with Songbird: The Music of Eva Cassidy.
If you’re a fan of rock then don’t miss out on Toploader and the ever-popular Vampires Rock.
And ladies – did I mention The Dreamboys are also back at the theatre this season in an action-packed night of music, muscle, magic and mayhem!
The theatre continues its First World War Centenary Season with a great selection of delicious cream teas, films and shows.
Other highlights include, Des O’Connor and Richard Digance in September; Medium Colin Fry in October plus the unique and bizarrew Circus of Horrors
This year’s panto is Robin Hood And The Babes In The Wood with Neighbours’ Alan Fletcher, X Factor’s Andy Abraham, Britain’s Got Talent ventriloquist Steve Hewlett and 90’s pop sensation Anna Kumble (Lolly).
