Come and experience the magic of Glyndebourne on the Ropetackle big screen for this spectacular HD, Blu-Ray screening of the Opus Arte production of Billy Budd.
The tense and stifling atmosphere on board a British boat during the Napoleonic wars, with discipline brutally enforced and danger of attack ever present, is powerfully evoked in this production by Michael Grandage. Don’t expect grand tunes – the orchestration is brilliantly descriptive. Featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus. Conducted by Sir Mark Elder.
Running Time: 3hrs 20mins. Starts: 5pm. Tickets: £12 (includes free glass of bubbly on arrival).
Feel free to bring your own interval picnic and support the centre by purchasing wine from our bar.

Victoria Melody and Farnham Maltings present:
// Major Tom
The true story of how Victoria became a beauty queen and her Bassett Hound (Major Tom) became a champion show dog, reflecting the British fascination with celebrity, beauty and winning.

*Nominated* Total Theatre Awards 2013
*Nominated* Arches Brick Award 2013
“A truly winning comedy, I laughed till I cried.” ★★★★★ Donald Hutera, The Times

Major Tom is the story of how an average 34 year old became a beauty queen and how her unruly pet basset hound, Major Tom, became a championship show dog.

Major Tom and Victoria increasingly immerse themselves in the obsessive and confusing realm of personal scrutiny as they participate as genuine contestants, determined to win.

Victoria, accompanied on stage by documentary film footage and her dog, tells this true story. It explores the British fascination with celebrity, beauty and winning.

"Major Tom is the antidote to overly-earnest attempts to usurp our idiocies. It is the type of show young women (and men) should see to ensure they get angry, but stay funny. And then get a dog."

Attila The Stockbroker presents Gentle Men: a history of the First World War through the lives of Pt. Ern Johnson & Pt. Harry Jenner.
Performed by folk legends Roy Bailey and Robb Johnson.
‘A really moving piece of work’ ~ Billy Bragg
‘A brilliant project to soundtrack the looming centenary of the start of the Great War’ ~ The Living Tradition
Robb Johnson’s highly acclaimed song suite Gentle Men focuses on his grandfathers’ experience of the war. The songs present the effect of history on two of its statistics, two ordinary soldiers, two gentle men, who survived the war but were forever in its shadow. ‘In all the artistic commemoration of the First World War, I wager nothing will show more humanity or understanding than Gentle Men, Robb Johnson’s song cycle about his two grandfathers’.
Before the start of the show Attila will be reading a poem in memory of his father, Bill Baine, who was also a soldier in the First World War.

The Muddy Choir
A new play by Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War for young audiences aged 13+
Commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre.
The summer of 1917 and the third battle for Ypres is lurching towards its bloody conclusion. Young soldiers Will, Rob, and Jumbo are thrust into a landscape starkly different to the playing fields and estates of their Sunderland home. When the trio’s singing causes a disturbance up the line they face unwelcome attention from their commanding officers. Is music their ticket away from the front, as Robbie dreams, or will the passion it brings about prove more dangerous than bullets and gas?
The Muddy Choir is a story about boys growing up and the humanising power of music. Commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre, the play has been written by Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The play, which includes period songs, tells the story of three young boys serving with the Durham Light Infantry in 1917.
“In this centenary year, there is a particular significance in bringing to venues work that reflects the reality of the First World War for the millions caught up in it, including so many young people.” ~ Jesse Briton, Playwright
We welcome bookings from schools and can offer a discounted rate, please call us on 01273 464440 to enquire.
Duration: approx. 1hr. Suitability: Key Stages 3, 4 & 5 | Ages: 13+ | Years 8-13. Subject Links: Drama & Performing Arts, English, History, GCSE & A-Level Music.

Sometimes it feels like everyone in the county hates young Tom. Except her. Dangerous comedy, performed by different actors on different nights. Affecting, unnerving yet laugh-out-loud-funny theatre. Tom is a character like no other with a story that you wont forget in a hurry. Former Brightonians, Fine Mess Theatre return with their shocking yet touching one-man show.

More twists than Agatha Christie and very funny!
Two Irish gem thieves embark on an audacious heist, exploiting the services of three unsuspecting young girls. Yet distress and trauma multiply in this bizarre, dark comedy that finds an entirely alternative use for cling-film and keeps you guessing until the final twist!

Another great show from this award-winning company!

TOM & Y2D Productions in association with Chamaeleon
LEO is a solo physical theatre piece that challenges our sense of gravity and reality through the clever interplay of superlative acrobatic performance and high tech video projection. Universally appealing to adults and children alike, this is the funny, intriguing and moving journey of a seemingly ordinary man whose world becomes physically unhinged.

Sondheim 's cult musical comes to Emporium
An Emporium / Chocolate Box Theatre co-production.

They're all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. Chocolate Box Theatre revisit and reimagine their sell-out 2012 production in this Emporium co-production.

The mannequins are forced to spend their days being glared at, but when their family is torn apart they must do everything they can to make people listen to them. Inspired by the relationship between surveillance culture and the London riots, 'Mannequins' is a brand new devised play.

Joe Orton's wicked domestic drama in it's 50th anniversary year
by Joe Orton

It is fifty years since Orton's domestic drama of lusty landladies and leather-clad psychopaths first outraged West End audiences. Today its themes of murder, blackmail and delicious deviance are just as shocking, tittivating and darkly hilarious as they were then.
