Will they triumph?! Don’t miss your chance to find out…!

    Filled with amazing stage spectacle including the high-flying car herself and unforgettable songs by the Sherman Brothers - including the Academy Award-nominated title song along with Toot Sweets, Me Ol’ Bamboo, Hushabye Mountain and many more - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, is a fantasmagorical, fun-filled, simply unmissable stage experience.

    Book by Jeffrey Lane, Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek

    Based on the film “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” written by Dale Launer and Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning

    This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York

    Two con men, a beautiful woman and the elite of the French Riviera collide in this sexy and irreverent farce.

    Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the hugely popular MGM film starring Michael Caine & Steve Martin, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave and with a good dash of mischief, this hysterically funny comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards on Broadway before its smash-hit West End run that starred Robert Lindsay & Rufus Hound.

    Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson swindles women with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end ...

    From the writer of current record-breaking West End hit Harry Potter and the Cursed Child comes this dark and visceral coming-of-age vampire love story, adapted from the best-selling novel and award-winning film.

    Oskar is a bullied lonely teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town, when a spate of sinister killings rock the neighbourhood. Eli is the young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time ...
