HANSEL, GRETEL & THE STROLLING PLAYERS
Written & Directed by Ellie King

A Traditional British Panto

Surrey Arts Centre – Dec. 21-30, 2018

The apple crop has failed for the past five years which is a disaster for the famous strudel makers of the little village of Unterstrudel, situated somewhere between Austria and Hungary. But the Strolling Players have come to town bringing their own silly brand of entertainment to lighten the mood, and now love is in the air so it can’t all be bad, right?

Oh but what’s this? Young Hansel and his sister Gretel are in terrible danger from Mistress Grimm, their father’s fiancee who is scheming to kidnap them for her own nefarious ends. And nothing attracts youngsters like a Gingerbread House full of candy. Oh dear – who can save them from a terrible fate? (no, in this version she doesn’t eat them!)

All your favourite panto characters are here in this, the most traditional panto in BC. Join in the fun by booing the bad guys, cheering the good guys and add to your Holiday Cheer as this feel-good show sets your feet tapping and lifts your heart.

Suitable for the whole family.

A BEDFULL OF FOREIGNERS
Written by Dave Freeman
Directed by Ellie King

Surrey Arts Centre – March 8-9, 2019
Anvil Centre, New West – March 14-16, 2019

Fawlty Towers meets Benny Hill in this hilarious, face-paced farce with a succession of enough disasters and misunderstandings, twists and turns to create the perfect comedy of chaos… and just the thing for an end-of-winter celebration.

The setting for the play is the dingy “Hotel Heinz” on the border between France and Germany where the inept staff create pandemonium when they book two couples into the same guest room! Mistresses, mistaken identities, misunderstandings and unexpected wives along with food poisoning outbreaks, monks and nun and a Bulgarian lady cyclist all add to the mayhem during the “Festival of St. Wolfgang.”

Some slightly suggestive situations.
