We’ve real treats in store to chase away the Jan­uary blues

Midweek Visiter - - Southport Bid St Joseph’s Hospice -

HAPPY New Year from all at South­port Lit­tle The­atre, we hope you’ve had a fab­u­lous Christ­mas.

There are now only a few per­for­mances left of our mag­i­cal pan­tomime, Cin­derella.

If you’re for­tu­nate enough you might still be able to get a ticket and go to the ball!

The show runs un­til Sun­day, Jan­uary 6.

This is a good op­por­tu­nity to look ahead to the sec­ond half of our sea­son; we have some real treats in store for you to chase away the Jan­uary blues long af­ter the sparkle of panto and the fes­tive break has faded away.

There are few Bri­tish comic writ­ers more cher­ished in the world the­atre than Alan Ay­ck­bourn and our next pro­duc­tion, How The Other Half Loves, is ar­guably one of his finest pieces of work.

A peren­nial favourite since its de­but back in the late 60s, it plays with the morals of that age.

Di­rec­tor Mike Yates has as­sem­bled a won­der­ful cast to play the three cou­ples whose in­ter­twined lives pro­vide the plot and re­hearsals are well un­der­way.

In Feb­ru­ary we will in­tro­duce you to The Pit­men Painters.

Lee Hall’s fas­ci­nat­ing play tells the true story of a group of coal min­ers from the North East who wanted to ap­pre­ci­ate art and ended up pro­duc­ing fine pieces.

Af­ter you have sat back and en­joyed that, we will have you on the edge of your seat for pacy thriller Dan­ger­ous Ob­ses­sion, then we will close our main sea­son with a de­light­ful ver­sion of clas­sic favourite, Jane Eyre.

As well as these spec­tac­u­lar shows, our youth the­atre will be pre­sent­ing Nick Dear’s adap­ta­tion of Franken­stein in March.

Di­rec­tor Paul Wilkin­son ap­plied spe­cially to of­fer this op­por­tu­nity and has re­cently held au­di­tions.

His tal­ented cast will be­gin re­hearsals as soon as he hangs up his Dame cos­tume for an­other year.

Our more in­ti­mate bar pro­duc­tion fol­lows the main sea­son.

This June Michèle Martin will present en­gag­ing two-han­der Vis­it­ing Mr Green.

As well as our own sea­son we will wel­come a host of shows from vis­it­ing so­ci­eties.
