Happy New Year and welcome you to another superb season at the

Princes Theatre.

This Spring we have a feast of exiting new shows and are pleased to

welcome back some of your favourites. New for 2019 is ‘Sounds of the

All Star Band and singers plus some special guests. Join us in March for a

trip down memory lane with ‘That’s Life – The Frank Sinatra Story’. This

brand new production celebrates the life and music of one of the greatest

icons of the 20th century and will include some of Frank’s biggest hits Fly

Me to the Moon, Come Fly with Me, My Way plus many more.

For families TV Presenter and host Richard Cadell will bring some magic

to the theatre with a brand new laugh out loud magic show ‘The Sooty

Show’ which is sure to be a great treat for the kids and any Sooty fans old

and new. Be sure to pop along to the meet and greet after the show too.

Finally in April we have a tribute to the legendary Queen of Rock

Tina Turner. With a tracklist that spans more than three decades of

international hits, ‘Totally Tina’ will be ‘Simply the Best’ show that will

recreate the spectacle and energy of the legend Tina Turner with their six

piece live band and dancers.

Please look through our brochure for all our other upcoming shows. We

are certain there will be something for everyone!

OF HORRORS

FRIDAY 1st FEBRUARY

Imagine a brilliant rock show combined with amazing, bizarre

& dare devil Circus acts, a stella light show and all performed

with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. If Quentin Tarantino

had directed Cirque Du Soleil you would be half way there.

The Circus of Horrors is back with a bang & a brand new show,

Psycho Asylum which includes an amazing amalgamation of

acts, driven by a rock n roll sound scape, a show that will have

you sat on the edge of your seat when not falling off it with

laughter.

The almighty cast that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got

Talent is now a West End & World Wide Hit will take you on

a roller coaster ride of sword swallowers, cross bow & knife

throwing ultra vixens, flaming hula hooping divas, hair hangers,

strong men, whirlwind acrobats, twisted contortionists, sinister

aerialists, the darkest of Magic & lots lots more.

It is a circus like no other and a show you simply can’t afford

to miss.

Whether you are a Rock fan or theatre goer The Circus of

Horrors has something for everyone, listed number 2, just

behind Guns n Roses and ahead of Marilyn Manson & Ozzy

Osbourne at this years Download Festival & previously winner

of the UKs top contemporary Circus - is now celebrating an

astounding 23 years on the road with it’s latest incarnation

Psycho Asylum.

THURSDAY 7th FEBRUARY

7.30PM

Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous

The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony

Stockwell has a long established credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums

and has shared the stage all round the world with international mediums such

as Colin Fry, James Van Praagh and Lisa Williams. Tony demonstrates his belief

that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with

detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations and all

delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include

psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.

Recent legislative guidelines insist that any Evening of Mediumship

should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’. Tony certainly uses

his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertain

but more important, Mediumship has the potential to change

someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort

and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to come away

untouched by the experience.

FRIDAY 8TH MARCH

7.30PM

That’s life is a brand new theatre production

celebrating the life and music of one of the 20th

centuries greatest icons, Frank Sinatra.

The authentic show takes you from his first early

recordings with the big bands, his rise, fall and the

women, notorious connections and collaborations that

assured his rise again to international stardom, in a

spectacular career spanning 70 years.

Frank Cognoscenti assumes the persona of Frank down

to the finest detail being a natural body double with

blue eyes and the uncanny ability to convey the most

subtle vocal nuance when interpreting the classic torch

songs and the swagger of the Vegas years - all with a

dry and mischievous sense of fun honed from years

of performing the Sinatra songbook to audiences

worldwide.

The concert includes a specially arranged collection

of his biggest hits including I’ve Got You Under My

Skin, Fly Me to the Moon, Come Fly with Me, My Way

and New York alongside stunning and captivating

set piece recreations of other pivotal collaborations,

tours, TV specials and landmark concerts rarely heard

in mainstream productions, from Count Basie, Louis

Armstrong, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Red Norvo, Rod

McKuen and more.

SUNDAY 10th MARCH

7.30PM

Legends of Irish music & song The FUREYS, renowned for their

hit songs ‘I will love you’, ‘When you were sweet 16’, ‘The Green

fields of France’, ‘The old man’, ‘Red rose café’, ‘From Clare to

here’, ‘Her father didn’t like me anyway’, ‘Leaving Nancy’, ‘Steal

away’ etc return to the Princes Theatre, Clacton-on-Sea on

Sunday 10th March 2019.

The FUREYS have been entertaining audiences worldwide for

41 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime

Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese

and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated

his favourite peace song of all time is the FUREYS “Green Fields

of France” and President Michael D Higgins attended their last

concert in National Concert Hall.

The FUREYS are responsible for some of the most stirring

music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based

music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest

concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability

to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians

themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from

a very early age and there was live traditional music in

their house almost nightly. Their emotive songs stir many

emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy.

A FUREYS concert is always a night to remember

PRINCES THEATRE

PROPOSED NEW

SEATING LAYOUT

After listening to numerous constructive customer

comments, the Princes Theatre’s management have

evaluated how the layout of the stalls area can be modified

to better accommodate everyone, whilst taking into

consideration the needs of wheelchair users and those with

various mobility issues.

With the advent of motorised wheelchairs over recent

years the length and width have increased considerably,

meaning the old seating layout is no longer able to

comfortably accommodate as many spaces. Customers

have also demonstrated the need for more aisle seats

STAGE

which was another key criteria in the redesign process.

Here at the Princes Theatre we realise that this change will

directly affect our valued customers so we feel it only fair

that we should have consultation sessions where we can

create the proposed layout, open our doors, put the kettle

on and listen to any feedback.

Session 1 Tuesday 15th January 6.00pm

Session 2 Wednesday 16th January 11.00am

If you are unable to make either session and

wish to provide feedback please email us at
