    The Memory Of Water

    Written by Shelagh Stephenson
    Directed by Anne Charbel

    This is a poignant and very witty play in which three sisters gather at their mother's home for her funeral. They discuss memories of childhood, which inevitably leads to disagreement on the detail – to great comedic effect!

    Their reminiscences and relationships are encapsulated in some very sharp and moving dialogue.

    The play won the Sony award for Best Original Drama in 1997, and Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2000.

    Tickets: Standard £14 with concessions; Available online.

    Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em

    Written by Guy Unsworth
    Directed by Rob Cording-Cook
    Based on the TV Series by Raymond Allen

    Hilarious mishaps and DIY disasters bring the house down, quite literally, as the lovable accident-prone Frank Spencer and his long-suffering wife Betty create comic mayhem in Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em.

    Betty has exciting news for Frank, but he’s preoccupied by possible newfound fame as a magician. With guests arriving for dinner and crossed wires all round, priceless misunderstandings are on the menu.

    Based on the 1970s classic TV comedy by Raymond Allen and written by the award-winning Guy Unsworth, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is the ultimate feel-good night out. Quite Frank-ly, you’d be a fool to miss it!

    Directed by Rob Cording-Cook, this amateur production of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

    Tickets: Thursday – Saturday Evenings £17, Wednesday Evening & Saturday Matinee £15.

    Telephone the Box Office on 01202 885566 or book online (Booking fees may apply).

    And Then There Were None

    Written by Agatha Christie
    Directed by Edward Funnell

    Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal – and a secret that will seal their fate. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

    One of Christie’s darkest tales and a masterpiece of dramatic construction, its growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing to the very end.

    Please note the performance may contain flashing flights and some themes which may cause offence.

    Tickets: Centre Members £12, Non-members £14; Available from 22 January 2024 online.

    The Ballad Of Maria Marten

    Play by Beth Flintoff
    Directed by Luke Kernaghan
    By arrangement with Nick Hern Books

    This theatre production is a collaboration between the following courses at Arts University Bournemouth:

    BA (Hons): Acting, Performance Design and Film Costume, Costume, and Make Up for Media and Performance

    The Ballad Of Maria Marten is a revisionist retelling of a harrowing true crime in 1827, which sheds light on a complex tale of love, loss, prejudice, and patriarchal power.

    Despite the fact that this is a true crime dram, this is also very much a story of female friendship and joy, and one that sadly resonates strongly today.

    This show is recommended for people aged 12 and over.

    Tickets: Full £13.20, Concessions £4 (Student, child, senior, disability and low income; you may be asked for proof of eligibility); Available online.

    The Memory Of Water

    Written by Jack Sharkey
    Directed by Don Cherrett

    A mystery farce with one-liners all the way and a lot of visual humour throughout…

    Never has murder been this funny. A spoof of all crime thrillers, it is good clean mirth all the way. The quick smart, extremely well timed dialogue of Jack Sharkey comes through loud and clear with never a dull moment.

    Edgar suspects that Mavis, his new second wife, is having an affair. Mavis wants rid of Edgar to inherit his money.

    This play runs from comic twist to comic twist from the moment it opens with some wonderful eccentric characters!

    Tickets: standard £14 with concessions; available online.

    Blithe Spirit

    Written by Noël Coward
    Directed by Claire Nicholson

    Blithe Spirit is a comic play by Noël Coward, described by the author as “an improbable farce in three acts”. The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his wilful and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles’ marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.

    Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters

    Written by Terry Pratchett
    Adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs

    When Duke Felmet murders King Verence and takes over Lancre on the Discworld®, three witches are tasked with protecting the king’s baby son, Tomjon: Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down to earth, common) and Magrat Garlick (innocent, naive, slightly hippy).

    In a script that channels inspiration from the juiciest plot twists of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and Hamlet, plus a dose of essential HG Wells time-travel, we encounter a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, and strolling players, plus a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Our three witches.

    Ferndown Drama

    The Ghost Train

    Written by Arnold Ridley
    Directed by David Pile

    Take a journey back to the 1920s with Ferndown Drama when they present The Ghost Train at the Barrington Theatre from 24 – 27 April. This comedy drama written by Arnold Ridley (Dad's Army's Private Godfrey) tells the story of a group of passengers stranded at a remote West Country railway station, facing the prospect of a night in the waiting room. But when the old Stationmaster warns them about the phantom train that haunts the tracks after dark, they are subjected to one chilling moment after another.

    Performances are at 7.30pm each evening from Wednesday 24 April to Saturday 27 April, plus a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

    9 To 5 The Musical

    Milton Musical Society are excited to be back at the Regent performing 9 To 5 The Musical. With music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, the musical is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie from Twentieth Century Fox. Set in the late 1970s this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.

    Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged", the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

    Performed by the award-winning Milton Musical Society, who have previously performed Kipps – The New Half A Sixpence, Chess, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and the highly acclaimed sell out My Fair Lady.

    Please Note: This production contains comic sexual reference, light drug use, and the occasional swear word.

    Tickets: Full price £21, Concessions £20; Early bird offer: Book before 29 February 2024 and get £1 off each ticket; Tickets available via phone (01202 499199) or online.

    'Allo 'Allo

    Written by Jeremy Lloyd & David Croft
    Directed by Amanda Harber

    Based on the hugely successful British television series, which ran for seven seasons, this uproarious comedy relates the adventures of a hapless Café owner, René, in occupied France. You can see all of your favourite TV characters in the flesh, including René's tone-deaf wife Edith, Major-General von Klinkerhoffen and the Gestapo officer, Herr Flick!

    René and his wife have stashed a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis in a sausage in their cellar, where two British airmen are also hiding until the Resistance can repatriate them. Communications with London using the wireless that is disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarrassments this intrepid proprietor endures in the company of his patrons. News that the Führer is scheduled to visit the town inspires tricksters disguised as Hitler to frequent the Café. Meanwhile, René summons all the wit he can muster to save his café and his life.

    Please note the performance may contain flashing lights and themes which may cause offence.

    Tickets: Full £14, LCA Members £12 (booking fees apply); Available online.

    Luck, love and laughter collide in the glamorous world of Guys And Dolls this summer! With its colourful characters, dazzling dances and standout songs (including ‘Luck Be A Lady’ and ‘Sit Down, You’re Rocking The Boat’) it’s no wonder Guys And Dolls is one of the most loved shows from the golden age of Broadway musicals.

The company’s audience numbers have grown over successive productions at MAST Mayflower Studios, with Seussical (June 2023) and Monty Python’s Spamalot (January 2024) breaking records for SOS audience numbers in their new theatrical home. Given the broad popularity of Guys And Dolls, early booking is strongly advised!

    This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
