Black Box presents
Bully Beef and Whizzbangs
by Chris Hawley

A touring production of a brand new play, premiered at the Totton Drama Festival in March 2018.
Set in the battlefields of France during 1916. Smudger, a new arrival at the Front, is keen to shoot his first German whilst Harry is more interested in keeping his head down, thinking of home and enjoying his mug of tea.

Full of trench humour, WHIZZBANGS is a wry look at life in the trenches through the eyes of two reluctant heroes. Stuck in a hole, surrounded by mud and death, how will our boys cope with the ever present danger of being shot or blown to smithereens? “Cheer up chum! The first seven years is the worst!”

RAODS presents
Life Of Riley
by Alan Ayckbourn

Bittersweet, but hilarious - classic Ayckbourn
(Communicating with my husband) is like "talking through a sheet of glass, as if you're in prison - or at the post office". It is lines like that which make every Alan Ayckbourn play a poignant, funny and memorable way to spend an evening at the theatre. In Life of Riley he tells the story of George Riley's closest friends, as they struggle to come to terms with the news that George ("a hippie Peter Pan") has just weeks to live.

The Worthy Players presents
Cinderella
by Stuart Ardern and Bob Heather

Pantomime! – Yes, it’s that time again, when the players and backstage teams put all their energies into creating that special magic that comes through panto. Humour and wit for all ages, romance, wicked characters, good fairies, great songs and glamorous costumes; they’re all here.
This year, Director Nick Kearns has elected to go to the heart of traditional pantomime with an audience favourite, Cinderella. The 16 roles are allocated and rehearsals are well under way. With characters like the Ugly Sisters, the wicked stepmother, Baron Hardup, Buttons and Cinders herself, the experienced cast are relishing the chance to exploit their parts to the full. Once again, Musical Director, Miriam Edmond will be adapting well-known songs to fit the plot in her inimitable style.
As usual, at each performance there are a licensed bar, raffle prizes and a detailed programme available.
It’s a family-friendly show suitable for every age, taking place at 7.30pm on 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th December 2018 with an open matinee at 2.30pm on the Saturday afternoon of the 15th.
Look out for posters and leaflets, and check out all details on our website www.theworthyplayers.co.uk or on Facebook /theworthyplayers. Tickets are £8 for adults and £6 for concessions (Senior, Child or Student), and can be obtained online via tickets@theworthyplayers.co.uk or by calling 07788 888200.

And, oh yes, I nearly forgot the dancing camel.
