Until November 18, 2018

Welcome to the opening night of 'The Murder at Haversham Manor' where students of the Cornley University Drama Society are attempting to stage this 1920s production. However, everything that can go wrong is and the opening night is quickly going from bad to disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can't play dead and actors who trip over everything they struggle to get to their final curtain call.

Rufus Wainwright's lush, theatrical pop harks back to the traditions of Tin Pan Alley, cabaret and even opera. Son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, brother to musical siblings Martha and Wainwright, songwriting is in his blood. He remains firmly out of their shadows though, with a folk legacy of his own that includes seven studio albums and a fully-fledged opera.

With the release of Mannheim Steamroller's first holiday album 1984 came the kind of fame that made the act a veritable Christmas time tradition. With founder and composer Chip Taylor at the helm, the all-American music troupe continues to tour extensively, bringing Yuletide cheer to audiences throughout the US with a unique Neo-Classical take on popular carols and songs. It's no wonder that Mannheim Steamroller is the top-selling Holiday Act of all time!

December 18 - 30, 2018

Rogers and Hammerstein's classic adaptation has been reincarnated for the 21st Century, with a new book by Douglas Carter Beane that updates the fairytale with new sub-plots, whilst keeping the heart of this wonderful story of Cinderella, her glass slipper and the Prince who falls for her. This fresh and sweet revival is an opulent affair, with high spirited choreography, stunning costumes, against the soundtrack of R&H's best songs.
