Tickets in the front 3 rows - £23.50, all other seats - £20.50, students - £16

John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’. Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today’s pop culture. Aside from his trademark ‘look’ continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge. 

His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B. These collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 recent global number 1 albums - with The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed A:M Album 

This latest show is a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat - a chance to witness a living legend at the top of this game.

LLOYD & ROSE BUCK: Our Life with Birds

Tuesday 6 March at 7.30pm

Tickets - £15, concessions - £13, family ticket from £48

It’s not often you see birds on stage in a theatre and even more rare to see one flying over the audience but ‘Our Life with Birds’ promises to give audiences arare opportunity to meet Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, hawks, owls, starlings and many more - all raised and trained with the utmost loving care by bird handlers Lloyd and Rose Buck.

Over the last 25 years, Lloyd and his wife Rose have devoted their lives to taking care of birds and mastering the art of capturing them on film. They are, without a doubt, the world’s experts at tracking birds and in-flight filming. Between them Lloyd and Rose have been involved with over 100 different productions and feature films and have worked with every natural history television star including Sir David Attenborough, Steve Backshall, Bear Grylls, Michaela Strachan, Chris Packham, Kate Humble and many more. 

They often appear on camera themselves and are frequent guests on BBC programmes such as 'The One Show', ‘Springwatch' and ‘Countryfile'. From Tilly the Golden Eagle to Poppy the pigeon, it’s unusual to find Lloyd and Rose without one of their feathered family under their arms. 

’The Bucks are remarkable people because when they do imprint, they form a bond they can’t break and it means those swans are with them for life’ - Sir David Attenborough 

'Looking after our birds is not just our career and job, it is a lifestyle, as you have to be there for them seven days a week, but we love it' - Lloyd Buck 

This show is illustrated with Lloyd and Rose’s own film footage and photography and is suitable for all ages.  It promises to be an interactive wildlife experience like no other!

Newsflash! There's been a series of high-profile crimes right across the city - but fear not...The police chief's put his best man on the job - Dick Tracy. It's now down to the square-jawed, hard-hitting, fast-shooting, comic book detective to solve the crime the only way he knows how...the crime solving way...Will Tracy be able to save the day, get the girl and get to the bottom of who's causing the mayhem? Or perhaps the truth is closer than he thinks....

With their work rooted in the ridiculous, Le Navet Bete's Dick Tracy is a physical comedy influenced by the world-famous detective incorporating fooling, original live music, plenty of audience interaction, lightning quick character changes, incredibly authentic accents spattered with mystery, malice and mischief. 

Having wowed audiences across the globe since 2007 with their inimitable, tightly-honed style of comedy performance, the award winning Le Navet Bete team up once again with one of the UK's most exciting comedy directors John Nicholson (Peepolykus) and supported by Arts Council England, Dick Tracy promises to have the bad guys in handcuffs and the audience in stitches.

Presented by Gonzo Moose

In Association with The Pound Arts Centre and Pegasus Theatre

Directed by Abigail Anderson

 

Saturday 10 March at 7.45pm

Tickets - £12, concessions - £10

A rip-roaring comedy adventure, inspired by the Horror movies of the 1950’s, 'The Thing That Came From Over There' is a fast-paced rollicking ride, mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome deaths.

It’s 1912, and as Scott and Amundsen begin their race across Antarctica, the hapless explorer, Captain Reginald Cranston Scot-t-t, has accidentally landed on the wrong side of the continent.

As Cranston and his motley band set up base camp, a meteor crashes nearby.  Deciding to investigate, they set out towards the crash site - unaware of the danger that awaits not just them, but the whole of planet Earth.

What ancient evil lurks inside the crater? What is the dark secret of the slimy fungus? And what is the horrifying fate of those who encounter the parasitic space worms?

Join three daring actors as they play over 15 roles in 85 minutes of shocks, spine tingling silliness, and blood curdling terror.

With comedy and thrills galore, the show features visual gags, verbal wit, giant puppetry, and even a little bit of live music.

Inspired by a true story. Dan and Billy, two young soldiers, forge a friendship in the heat of the build up to the infamous battle. When Billy is killed in Mametz Wood, he leaves behind a devastated friend and, back home, a heart-broken and pregnant wife. 

Altered by his experiences on the Western Front, Dan returns home to step into his friend’s shoes, ultimately marrying Billy’s widow and raising their baby son as his own. 

Fifty yearsl ater, in a clearing in the wood, Dan has returned to lay a ghost to rest.

Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he’s close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong…or very right. And suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde. 

A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London’s fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn.

The Pharaoh hears of Joseph's ability and appoints him to the post of Number Two man in Egypt.

LOUDER IS NOT ALWAYS CLEARER (Ages 14+)

A Mr and Mrs Clark Production

Thursday 26 & Friday 27 April at 7.45pm

Tickets - £10, concessions - £8
Approximate running time 1 hour, late comers may not be admitted

Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. He’s just become a father. His friends say that he’s outgoing and that he loves music, festivals and nightclubs. Jonny is deaf. He was born deaf to hearing parents who were afraid that disability would stigmatise their son and the family.

'Louder Is Not Always Clearer' is an honest portrayal of the vulnerability of a deaf man. For a hearing audience it is an illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the show is a familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation. For all audiences it is a humorous and at times moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted.

Mr and Mrs Clark make new and innovative performances that engage audiences.  The Clarks were short-listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Speech Award in 2015 and presented (F.E.A.R.) as part of Wales In Edinburgh this year.

THE KING OF POP - THE LEGEND CONTINUES... STARRING NAVI

Friday 27 April at 7.30pm

Tickets - £20, children - £14

 

Get ready to moonwalk the night away at a show whose star performer ‘Navi’ once earned a standing ovation from Michael Jackson himself.

 

King Of Pop – The Legend Continues is currently on tour in the UK and is taking British theatres by storm. The superb production stars the world’s No.1 MJ impersonator ‘Navi’ who was actually invited to perform at two of Michael Jackson’s birthday parties in LA and New York. Michael not only applauded Navi but also gave him a standing ovation and invited the impersonator to spend a day at his home ‘Neverland’. The pair remained close and due to Navi’s uncanny resemblance to the star, he was often hired by Michael to act as a decoy to distract mobs of fans and press.

 

Navi has since continued to work at the highest level performing in a whopping 57 different countries and is now back in the UK for a national theatre tour along with his incredible live band and dancers. Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a show the whole family will enjoy.

THE BLUES BAND 2018

Saturday 2 June at 7.30pm

Tickets - £24

The Blues Band: 39 Years and Counting!

Formed in 1979 by five seasoned musicians, The Blues Band are celebrating 39 glorious years as Britain and Europe’s leading exponents of one of the greatest musical traditions of all time.

It began back then with a phonecall by Paul Jones, actor, singer, musician and radio presenter, no stranger to the pop charts throughout the 1960s as front man for the hugely successful Manfred Mann. His fellow Manfred Tom McGuinness shared the same love of the music - he’d started out with Eric Clapton in the Roosters. And they knew the right people to make their idea for a band ‘just to play the blues’ work; they brought in legendary slide guitar man and singer Dave Kelly, who brought along a talented fellow musician, bassist Gary Fletcher. With the addition of Tom’s chart-topping partner from McGuinness Flint, drummer Hughie Flint, (ex-John Mayall’s Blues Breakers), that first line-up stormed the post-punk music scene, and contrary to their expectations, they soon left the pub scene behind for an international career playing the music they loved. After two and a half years, Hughie Flint left due to the pressures of touring. His place was admirably filled by another fine drummer, Rob Townsend, a member of one of Britain’s most eclectic, legendary outfits, Family.

The rest, as the saying goes, is history.

Other blues groups come and go, but it takes something special to achieve the iconic prestige enjoyed by The Blues Band. If you want to know what 38 years of skill and devotion sound like, here’s your chance - if you love the blues, it doesn’t get any better than The Blues Band.

Lady Rhondda’s actions paved the way for women’s rights in the personal, professional and political worlds.

CROONERS

Saturday 26 October at 7.30pm

Tickets - £22.50

 

This rip roaring comedy musical has been wowing audiences with its witty and exhilarating show full of satirical energy, hilarious one liners, laugh out loud silliness and superb musical numbers.

Crooners follows the story of three very British gentlemen who exhume the characteristics of a crooner; suave, self-assured, stylish, as they defend the role of a crooner in our modern world. By the very same nature, it is not always obvious that these characteristics are adopted quite so well by the quintessentially British. Cue a splendiferous injection of British comedy. Tongue firmly in cheek. And an Outrageous injection of Big Band Swing.

Featuring the outstanding and uncompromising live, on stage musicianship of the 9-piece band ‘The Mini Big Band’, these Crooners feature songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Matt Monro, Nat King Cole and Bobby Darin. Expect some Lady is a Tramp, Come Fly With Me,L.O.V.E, When You’re Smiling, Fly Me To The Moon, Beyond The Sea, Mac The Knife any many more…

Running Time; 2h20 min (inc interval)

SUN RECORDS: Where Rock'n'Roll Was Born - the Official Sun Records Concert Show

 

The legendary record label that brought you Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Rufus Thomas and scores morer ockin' pioneers, comes to life live on stage.

Revisit the blessed recording studio where the distinctive sound we know and love today was crafted from gospel, blues, hill billy, country, boogie and western swing by musical visionary Sam Phillips.

His trailblazing Memphis studio brought us That's Alright Mama, Great Balls of Fire, I Walk the Line, Whole Lotta Shakin', Bear Cat, Blue Suede Shoes, Good Rockin’ Tonight. . . hundreds of hits that would influence the world of music for generations to come.

 

Sam Phillips was a patient, honest man and a perpetual optimist. In 1954 he combined a modest 19-year-old Elvis Presley with musicians Scotty Moore, Bill Black and then DJ Fontana to create music that infused country and r'n'b.

 

It transcended musical and racial barriers. The ‘Sun Sound’ was born.

Rehearsed in an exact replica of the Sun Studios, featuring the musical instruments of the era, starring a multi-talented cast of singers and a supporting cast of amazing musicians, the sound of Sun is brought to life live on stage in the official concert show that takes you back to the birth place ofrock'n'roll.
