June Buckridge, famous for her portrayal of Sister George, the district nurse in a rural radio soap, is suffering a dual crisis. Professionally, she is terrified that her character is due for the chop. Domestically, she also worries that she is losing her powerful grip over her longtime lodger and probable lover, the child-like Alice. As a result, she becomes increasingly impossible to live with. Relationships are explored through scenes of clown-like comedy juxtaposed with moments of real pathos. There are interventions in the action from Mercy Croft, June's producer at the BBC who has her own private agenda, and Madame Xenia, a clairvoyant from the flat downstairs who offers warnings that all in the future is not looking rosy.

Tickets €12 and €6 for children. Members €10 on opening night and half price for Members over 80 on opening night. Complimentary tickets only available on opening night.

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up 'till the knob comes off. It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naive, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

'Wyrd Sisters' is sponsored by Columbia Worldwide Movers:

By: Denise Deegan
Directed by: Liz Pearce

Audition Dates:Tuesday 23rd and Thursday 25th October 2018 at 7.00 pm.

Daisy Meredith is the new girl at the spiffy Grangewood Boarding School for Girls – and the first girl from a poor background to win a scholarship. She dreams of midnight feasts, learning to play hockey and making new friends with the jolly rich girls. But not everyone wants to be Daisy’s friend – Sybil and Monica aren’t too keen for such riff-raff to join their prestigious educational establishment. Lines are drawn, enemies are made and soon Daisy is on an adventure to disprove false accusations, search for the hidden treasure that is rumoured to exist, and discover who the mysterious man is seen wandering the grounds. A long running success in London’s West End, Denise Deegan’s comic spoof of 1920s schoolgirl adventure stories is jolly spiffing fun! Come and see it or Matron will send you to your dorm with no tea.

7th - 11th MAY 2019, Curtain Up 7.30pm at Emba Theatre.

By: J B Priestley
Directed by: Peter Sandwith

Audition Dates:To be announced.

A group of three couples, old friends and all married on the same day in the same chapel, gathers at the Helliwells’ home to celebrate their silver anniversary. When they discover that they are not legally married, each couple initially reacts with proper Victorian horror – what will the neighbours think? – and all three couples find themselves re-evaluating their marriages; hovering closely over the proceedings is the Yorkshire Argus' alcohol-soaked photographer, keen to record the evening's events for posterity, and a wickedly destructive housekeeper who is hoping to use the couples' mortification to her own advantage. In the end, of course, everything turns out well, and the play ends on a happy note.
