    Jul 2022

    Portfolio 13/07/22 - 14/07/22 2 comments

    CCADS Theatre revive their award-winning 2017 production of this magical, truly heart-warming sequel to the mighty ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo, one of the world’s most successful and well-loved authors.

    Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpa’s eye. This beloved horse was sent to be a War Horse in World War One – and Grandpa had joined the cavalry to find and fight with him.

    FARM BOY brings us forward fifty years with Grandpa telling his grandson not only the story of Joey but a closely guarded secret which he has kept for many years …

    Set in Devon and joyously, through laughter and tears, celebrating the bond between the generations, FARM BOY is a delightfully entertaining play suitable for all ages … adults and children alike.

    Come and join us in the perfect, balmy setting of The Half Moon gardens in Sheet as part of their Summer Music Festival supporting Home-Start Butser.

    Music by Alan Menken; Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater; Book by Doug Wright

    Based on the Hans Christian Andersen story and the Disney film produced by Howard Ashman & John Musker and written & directed by John Musker & Ron Clements

    Multi award-winning CCADS Theatre return to the Festival Hall for the first time since their spectacular, sold-out production of Starlight Express in 2018 with a Disney classic for all the family.

    Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs including “Under the Sea”, “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”

    Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above and bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems and Ariel needs the help of her colourful friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

    SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE The Play
    Dec 2021

    Portfolio 07/12/21 - 11/12/21 2 comments

    This amateur production is given by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. http://www.concordtheatricals.co.uk 

    Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall. Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard. Music by Paddy Cunneen

    Originally produced on the West End by Disney Theatrical Productions & Sonia Friedman Productions, directed by Declan Donnellan, and designed by Nick Ormerod

    Penniless and indebted to two demanding producers, struggling young playwright William Shakespeare is tormented by writer’s block until he meets the beautiful Viola de Lesseps, daughter of a wealthy merchant, whose fiery passion for poetry and drama leaves her secretly longing to be an actor. Both are despondent when they learn that Viola’s father has promised her to the stuffy Lord Wessex in order to gain a title for their family. Under the veil of secrecy, Will and Viola’s passionate love affair becomes the basis of the very play he is writing – Romeo and Juliet. With opening night – and the wedding day – fast approaching, the plots race toward a parallel conclusion. Will it all work out in the end or are the two star-crossed lovers destined for tragedy?

    ‘A joyous celebration of theatre.’ Daily Telegraph
