Current Weekly Shows
Tap dancing pigs and flying sheep...a high-kicking farmer and a 6-ft dog gliding gracefully across the stage in a fiery tango? You can only be watching Shaun's Big Show, a wonderfully surreal stage adaptation of Aardman's hit animation Shaun the Sheep, enjoyed by children and adults alike during its critically-acclaimed 2011 UK tour.
This is family entertainment at its very best...the world of Aardman plus magnificent costumes, a delightful set, 11 fantastic dancers and top West End choreography all brought together under the magical touch of the nation's favourite children's dramatist, David Wood.
"...if you're looking for the ideal introduction to dance and theatre for very young children, this is it." Anne Morley-Priestman, What's On Stage, 5-star review
Duet for One
Directed by Robin Herford (The Woman in Black), Tom Kempinski's multi-award-winning play returns to the stage with a major UK tour in the Autumn of 2012. Resonant with echoes of the life of cellist Jacquelin du Pre, Duet for One leads celebrated concert violinst Stephanie Abrahams (Haydn Gwynne) through a series of highly-charged encounters with her doctor, Alfred Feldman (William Gaunt), as she is forced to re-evaluate her life and face a truth too difficult to comprehend.
Haydn Gwynne (Peak Practice, MerseyBeat, Nice Work and Drop the Dead Donkey) has made numerous stage appearances, most recently Billy Elliot The Musical (West End and Broadway) and Richard III with Kevin Spacey. William Gaunt became a household name for his role as Bob Marriott in ITV's Sergeant Cork. He also starred in BBC TV's Next of Kin, No Place Like Home and ITV's The Champions.
