               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

with Music

Free And Easy by Bill Cronshaw

(5m, 4f) Musical Comedy Play
Enjoy a real nostalgia treat with this gently humorous, hugely entertaining, piece of escapism. Set to a backdrop of over fifteen hits of the 50s and 60's, we follow the trials and tribulations of Eric Dobbins, the dryly nonchalant publican, and his matriarchal wife, Iris (a stereotypical landlady), as they, their staff and their regulars fight to save the pub from the unscrupulous hands of the brewery manager who sees it as a potential lap-dancing venue. Requires a cast of competent singers and a three-piece band.
Drama Play Script: 'Lumley Mill' by John Bartlett

Lumley Mill by John Bartlett

Cast Size : 37 (Adults & Juveniles) Large Cast Musical Drama
Set in the fields and farms of England circa 1890. John Bartlett's play is a lovingly created look back at those simpler times of shepherds and squires; innocence and indulgence; Morris men, maidens and milk-maids. Using traditional English folk tunes, this play is an unusual, but fascinating glimpse at the social mores and constraints of Victorian agricultural society. The cast list is quite large, so there is ample scope for doubling if necessary, or for involving a large number of actors where this is possible.

Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure At Sir Arthur Sullivan's by Tim Heath

(3m, 2f)
Holmes and Watson meet a friend of the composer Sir Arthur Sullivan outside the Opera House, Covent Garden, and are invited to recount some of their adventures on stage at a charity gala. The two stories that they choose to perform are Conan Doyle’s 'A Scandal in Bohemia' and 'Charles Augustus Milverton'. But why those stories, and why were they asked to perform in the first place? "I know an optical illusion when I see one," quips the great detective. But does he?

'Sunshine Mountain' - a play with music by John Bartlett

Sunshine Mountain by John Bartlett

(15m, 11f, 3m/f) Large Cast Musical Drama 
Set in the mid-1930's, a group of excitable children are taken to the seaside for a day. An endearing look back at more relaxed past times, when Sunday School charabanc outings were very popular and deckchair attendants ruled the beach! Suitable for either adult or school productions.
