Sister Act
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Richmond Operatic Society presents this popular musical that is sure to get you rocking in the aisles!

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and the uptight Mother Superior.

Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act is a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship and a reason to REJOICE!!

Tickets cost from £7.50 to £14.50 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

Orlando
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Orlando: Who is she? Who is he? Who are we?

Find out in the life-affirming, comedic tale of an immortal poet, whose gender cannot be pinned down, whose spirit cannot be caged, and whose irreverent, romantic adventures across British history – from the 1500s to the present day – provide a magic-realist exploration of human identity; personal, sexual and national.

Drawing on a decade’s worth of critically-acclaimed theatre-making, Dyad Productions – performer Rebecca Vaughan and writer/director Elton Townend Jones – explore what it means to find our place in the world whilst remaining utterly true to who we are.

Based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf, this production comes from the award-winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Christmas Gothic, Dalloway, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic, The Time Machine and Austen’s Women.

***** ‘A towering performance‘ - The Scotsman

***** ‘A luscious sweeping tale’ - The i

***** ‘Truly extraordinary… one of the most exciting young performers on the British Stage’ - British Theatre Guide

***** ‘Quite simply: it’s astounding’ - Broadway Baby

David Scheel in Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A runaway success in London’s West End, this entertaining show is a hilarious send-up of classical music.

Australian pianist, David Scheel, is one of the finest solo musical comedy performers in the world. In his concerts you can expect to hear anything from a well-known folk tune played in the styles of various famous composers; two different pieces played with different hands at the same time; and a medley of the 20 worst tunes ever written.

His raconteur-style includes hilarious stories of pianos that he has played, accompanied by sharp-edged commentary on the lives of various celebrities and politicians.

“As funny as any, wittier than most, and, uniquely, a concert pianist of international stature...He stands alone, in a class of his own.” - BBC Arts Review

“The only show in town that can satisfy lovers of classical music and comedy alike.” - San Francisco Chronicle

Tickets cost £15 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
The Georgian Theatre Royal Youth Theatre Tuesday Senior Acting Classes perform a double act of plays.

Drama Baby by Jamie Brittain


It’s the final rehearsal before the practical exam for A-Level Theatre Studies and two competing groups attempt to achieve the ever-elusive top grade whilst negotiating sex, alcohol and Antonin Artaud. As egos clash and new relationships are formed and broken, Drama Baby goes to the heart of what it means to perform and what it’s like when the costumes and lights are stripped away.


The Changing Room by Chris Bush


This lyrical piece explores what it means to be a young person in the age of digital nativism. Are they teenagers? Are they adults? Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires.

In a virtual space, a group of teenagers spend their time deconstructing children’s literature and the messages in modern music, but when a new member of the chat joins to share thoughts of depression and suicide, the conversation takes a dark turn.


Forty Five Minutes by Anya Reiss

When a computer error means a group of students are given an incorrect deadline for their UCAS application they take to the school IT suite in a state of sheer panic. Forty Five Minutes explores what happens when young people are forced to make decisions about their future and being rushed headlong into adulthood when you still feel like a child.

Scary Play by Judith Johnson

The twins are having a birthday sleepover; as night draws in, the group attempts to scare the living daylights out of each other. Kal recounts the legend of a local house, said to be haunted by the ghost of a strange old lady who once lived there. The evening takes a terrifying turn when they challenge each other to sneak into the house, but what is lurking in the upstairs bedroom?


Mobile Phone Show by Jim Cartwright

A communication cacophony, a fully charged chorus line of chaos in a rhapsody of text, tweet and gabble.

With 80% of school age children spending on average 90 minutes a day on their phones, this challenging play explores the vital messages they can send.

He soon has to succumb to blackmail because of his daughter, and this is only the first in a series of moral compromises he will have to make.

Alan Ayckbourn’s riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed won the London Evening Standard Drama Award for Best Play.

Antiques Valuation Event
Venue: The Station
Time: 10.00am - 3.00pm
Top antiques expert David Elstob will be hosting a free valuation day at The Station for all your antiques, fine art and collectables.

David is one of only a small number of auctioneers in the country to be recognised as a RICS Chartered Arts and Antiques Surveyor; a rare distinction that puts him firmly into the industry’s elite. Having held senior positions at premier auction houses in the region, he has launched his own business with his wife Beth, a leading jewellery consultant and valuer.

Elstob & Elstob is based at Bedale Hall in Bedale and aims to provide a focal point for buying and selling high-quality antiques, fine art and objects of distinction. The couple are joined by a team of specialists who have previously worked at high-end institutions including Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Bonhams and Doyle in New York.

This free valuation day provides an ideal opportunity for people to find out more about a whole range of contemporary or antique objects, including silver, ceramics, glass, pictures, sculpture or other collectables.

While there is no obligation at all attached to the valuations, anyone wishing to sell an item will be given the option to have it included in the next auction at the Bedale saleroom.

Shanghai: Revolutionary City
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm to 8.30pm
Museum Director, Lynda Powell explores the role of the men sent to Shanghai to serve British interests.



During the 1920s, Shanghai was crawling with spies, missionaries, political agitators and colonial entrepreneurs. Many countries, including Britain, made lucrative treaties with the Chinese, enabling them to establish trading outposts outside the ancient fortress city, and channel much-needed cash into near bankrupt post-war economies back home. The Green Howards were part of this intoxicating environment.


Tickets are £5 and can be ordered online or by phone.
