choice with the diverse range of amazing shows coming to

our venue.

A fantastic line up of comedy entertainment will be hitting

in hysterics from beginning to end. Finally later in the year

we welcome Britain’s Got Talent Winner Lee Ridley AKA Lost

Voice Guy. Be prepared to be roaring with laughter with his

unique comedy routine in ‘I’m Only In It For The Parking’.

For the music fans this Autumn we are pleased to be offering

a number of brand new tribute shows. A Gaga Star Is Born

will be joining us in October and in the month of November

we have an Aretha Franklin tribute ‘Respect’, Mark Daniels

performs as Michael Bublé in his production of Ultimate

Bublé Christmas Special, William Hicks will serenade you

with music from the legendary Barry White and lastly take a

trip down memory lane with hits from two of the most iconic

bands of the late 70s From Gold to Rio featuring songs from

Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran.

Finishing off this superb line up of shows is our Christmas

pantomime production Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs

with new company Anton Benson Productions. Hi Ho Hi Ho

you need to get your tickets for panto!! Yes don’t delay! Book

your favourite seats now for this year’s festive treat.

Over the coming months you will start to notice that the

seating layout for the stalls area may differ for each show

as we are now introducing the new layout. To specify which

layout is being used I have added the wording ‘Old Stalls

Layout’ or ‘New Stalls Layout’ next to the show price at

the foot of the page. Please see page 13 for image of new

seating layout.

We do hope you enjoy what is on offer this season and

once again a huge thank you to all our customers for their

continued support and ongoing feedback. As a result of

achieving consistent high ratings on

TripAdviser for five consecutive years we

have now been awarded a Hall of Fame

Certificate of Excellence which is a huge

achievement.

Godspell, The Rock Musical

Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Gospel

According to St. Matthew.

Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy

Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by

storm. Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs,

including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good

Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games,

storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging

in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage.

Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness,

tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Jimmy’s brand new show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things.

Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love.

But they’re just jokes - they are not the terrible things.

Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo.

Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.

SUNDAY 6th OCTOBER 7.30PM

Now in it’s 12th year touring, the award winning ‘Rule The

World’ has been recognised as the Number 1 ‘Take That’ tribute

show in the world!

The cast recently appeared alongside THE REAL ‘TAKE THAT’

on BBC1’s ‘The Graham Norton Show’ and after hearing Dan

Maines (Gary), a stunned Gary Barlow said in amazement “He

sounds like me!”. The real Gary then also praised the whole

band saying “They’re very good these guys!” - not an easy

statement to acquire from the former X Factor judge.

This production will take you through the musical highlights of

‘Take That’s’ career. From the moment the fresh faced boys first

stepped on stage in the early 1990’s, to Robbie’s huge success

as a solo artist. The show also features the hugely popular 4

piece years and the big reunion everybody was waiting for in

2010 when all 5 members of ‘Take That’ reunited for a brand

new album and tour. The show is an accurate portrayal of

Take Thats concerts through the years. With the accuracy in

mannerisms and vocals, this show will leave you questioning

whether you just saw the real thing. You will get the feel and

look of all their biggest arena tours... in a far more intimate,

close-up setting!

For this tour, the fantastic Robbie Williams tribute act Dan Budd

is joining the ‘Rule The World’ cast. Dan was a contestant on

BBC1’s ‘Let It Shine’ and head judge Gary Barlow was amazed

by him. He commented “You are an amazing impersonator and

it’s unbelievable how much you look and sound like Rob”.

If you like ‘Take That’ you will LOVE ‘Rule The World’. Prepare to

be amazed and transported back throughout the past 25 years

of ‘Take That’ magic.

simply wouldn’t

be Christmas

without a visit

to 26 Oil Drum

Lane to catch up

with the nation’s

Albert and

But Harold has his

flights of fancy…

including a flight he

fancies abroad or

to throw the biggest

Christmas party London’s ever had to offer! His “dzirty old man” Albert, of course, has other ideas…

Who wouldn’t want to spend Christmas at Mrs. Boxwood’s B&B in Bognor Regis anyway??

These much-loved episodes of classic comedy from Ray Galton and Alan Simpson have been

freshly adapted for the stage and are presented by Hambledon Productions – the company behind

the recent sell-out successes’ “Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show” and “Steptoe and Son”.
