St David’s Hospice Care

Saturday 20 October at 7pm

Tickets - £21

Based on the 2010 film of the same name, the story of Made in Dagenham is centred around the true-life events of the Ford sewing machinists strike of 1968. It follows Rita O’Grady, a working class machinist and mother who strives for equality and an end to discrimination in the workplace. The actions of the Ford employees brought about huge positive change in the UK as the Equal Pay Act 1970 was introduced as a result of their bravery in challenging unfair practices. The play is a historically important and uplifting story told with music, dancing and vigour. 

Performed by the London based award winning ‘Impact Theatre Company’ with its Stellar Cast , this is one glorious show not to missed.

Kaiser: The Greatest Footballer Never To Play Footall (15)

Saturday 20 October at 7.45pm 
Running time – 97 minutes 

Director – Louis Myles 

This is a fascinating documentary from British film-maker Louis Myles about someone who, in the 1980s and 90s, became a legend in the world of Brazilian football. Someone whose pure outrageousness was hiding in plain sight. His rackety career tells you a lot about human nature and people’s willingness to be fooled; about a media that saw its job simply as cheerleading; and about the nature of celebrity.

Aneurin Bevan and Jennie Lee were comrades and flatmates who together fought and preached for socialism as they saw it; he the Tredegar firebrand on the Labour back benches, she the miner’s daughter from Fife who became a Socialist MP before she was old enough to vote.  

Then they were married; he deeply in love with her; she on the rebound from a tragic love affair. Both of them were loved and loathed by their fellow MP’s; he the Bollinger Bolshevik; she his Lady Macbeth, the dark angel at his shoulder. Life together unfolded through the desolate war years, the trials of founding the NHS, and the vicious internal feuds of the 1950’s. But as it did so their love deepened and matured.

This is the story of a partnership that became one of the outstanding political marriages of the twentieth century.

The UK’s longest running Musical Theatre Concert Tour features past principal performers from Les Miserables. Delivering over two hours of the best of Broadway and the West End, and of course ending with a stunning finale from Les Miserables. The concert features David Fawcett (Valjean) Andy Reiss (Enjolras & Resident Director for the National Tour of Les Miserables) Katie Leeming (Eponine) and Poppy Tierney (Cosette), together with a live band who capture the feel of the original orchestrations of the chosen musicals. To this day every musical note is still played and sung live – very rare indeed. Beyond the Barricade gives musical theatre songs a bold concert format treatment – but with the conviction and intention to deliver the material as if the audience are watching the original performance.

This incredible concert is now in its 19th successive year.

SUN RECORDS: THE CONCERT

Saturday 24 November at 7.30pm

Tickets - £25, concessions - £23

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 more rockin' pioneers, comes to life, live on stage.

Re-visit 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 of rock'n'roll.

THE HUMOURS OF BANDON

Saturday 24 November at 7.45pm

Tickets - £13, concessions - £11

 

 

‘Don’t be afraid of that floor, hammer it!’

 

On the eve of the Irish Open championship, we meet Annie, a 16 year old Dubliner, as she charts us through the various successes and disappointments of her Irish Dancing life. We share her mind numbing commitment and burning desire to win the Irish Open title. Will she win and, if so, in what way?

 

From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium.

 

The Humours Of Bandon is a coming of age story, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life.

 

Developed as part of Show in a Bag an artist development initiative of Tiger Dublin Fringe, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.

Celebrating the iconic Frank Sinatra who was born in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1915, this show is far more than atribute to Ol' Blue Eyes. The magic of Sinatra live in concert is captured perfectly by the award winning David Alacey who is recognised worldwide as one of the leading interpreters of his music.


This lavish production encapsulates not only the wonderful hit catalogue of the original legend, but also the remarkable personality of the star who ruled the world of entertainment for over half a century. It also features The stunning L.A Showgirls, The Swinging Buddy Greco Band under the Direction of Paul Drakeley and guest star the evergreen all-round entertainer Anita Harris.
.
All of the hit songs and anthems made popular by the legendary performer such as "Come Fly With Me", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "My Way", "Strangers in The Night” and of course, "New York New York" are included along with many rarer gems.

 

So don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the life of a true legend and experience what it was really like to spend an evening in the presence of the greatest entertainer of the twentieth century doing it as only he could – his way!

Ladies and gentleman from here on in it’s Frank Sinatra
