_________________________________________
Forget Assassins Creed; the real history and legends of the Knights Templar is equally exciting, with many unsolved mysteries to this day. Historically a monastic order of crusading knights in the middle ages, the Knights Templar began from humble origins, but soon became a powerful, international organisation, answerable only to the Pope, and institutionally extremely wealthy. As the medieval crusades failed, so did the Templars, and in 1307, among accusations of heresy, and treason, the senior members of the Order were arrested. Legend tells that their wealth, seen by eyewitnesses only months before, had vanished. With the accusations of heresy upheld, the Order was disbanded, and the last Grandmaster, Jacques de Molay, burned at the stake in 1314.

Legends remain. What became of the Templars treasure? Were they really heretics, or victims of a political trap? Legends tell of them protecting various secrets, including those that could destroy the church - some of those legends relate to the Holy Grail; the cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper, or lost gospels, or even that Jesus himself had descendants who lived on through the ages.

Based tightly on the history, and some of the theories, the film follows Hughes and Angelo, formally of Jacques de Molays inner council, from the fall of Acre, to Paris, and then as they go on the run to the Bristol preceptory, tonwards to Templecombe in Somerset and then to Trebeigh in Cornwall .

Spamalot.

Eric Idle & John Du Prez's musical lovingly ripped off from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Once in every show…. there’s a song that goes like this….

Arthur, King of the Britons, is on a special quest to find a rabble of knights good enough to join him and rule around his round table in Camelot, so he sets off with his faithful companion, Patsy to find his “Grail”.

On his way he manages to come across the Knights that go Ni, the Lady of the Lake, a set of cheer-leading Laker Girls, some rather  rude French people and a man who’s “Not Dead Yet’.

Mix together some of Monty Python’s best loved song, “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life” and some “Fisch Schlapping” and you have Monty Python’s hilarious and riotous humour brought alive on stage by the award winning Sharnbrook Mill Theatre Trust.

Spamalot has everything a hit musical needs; sparkling costumes, jokes a plenty, boundless energy, lots of hair flicking and just a few reference to a once popular tinned meat.

Join King Arthur and his knights for a night of fun - and remember, “What happens in Camelot, stays in Camelot”.

Pippin - Bridewell Theatre
Pippin

Book by Roger O.Hirson

Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Box office: sedos.co.uk

Think about your life, Pippin.
Days are tame and nights the same.
Now think about the beauty
In one perfect flame…

Meet Pippin. Young, ambitious, full of potential and ready to change the world. But things are never that simple.

Setting out to make his mark, Pippin dabbles with the horrors of war, the lure of sex and the sordid world of politics, failing at every turn. But there is someone Pippin can rely on. Someone he can trust. Someone who can help Pippin be remembered forever… in one final, extraordinary blaze of glory.

With its infectious and unforgettable score from four-time Grammy and three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has delighted audiences across the world. The most recent Broadway revival swept the New York awards circuit, including winning the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

Join us. Perhaps you’ll find your very own corner of the sky.

People by Alan Bennett
Dorothy’s inheritance is an old, run-down mansion she can’t afford to maintain. The play follows various attempts by her and her sister to resolve the issue. These include “gifting” to the National Trust; selling to a property developer, and film-making (of a less than salubrious nature where Dorothy is clearly aware of the comings and goings in the four-poster bed). Underground rumblings from a disused coalmine, the discovery of a large number of (still full) chamber pots and an untimely visit from the Bishop make for a show full of fruitful conflict.

People completed its National Theatre tour in 2015 and BCP are one of the first amateur companies to perform this entertaining, funny and touching play where Bennett successfully blends satire with nostalgia to produce a thought-provoking piece of theatre.

You Can't Take It With You - Bridewell Theatre
You Can’t Take It With You

 

By Moss Hart and George S Kaufman

Box office: sedos.co.uk

Set in the summer of 1938, New York City, You Can’t Take it With You introduces you to the Sycamores, an eccentric family who live life to the fullest by pursuing their passions – no matter how bizarre. Their routine is disrupted when their daughter Alice wants to bring her new fiancé and his ultra conservative Wall Street family home for dinner. The brusque Sycamores must straighten up to meet the new in-laws, but despite all best-laid plans, mishaps and mayhem ensue.

The play won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was then adapted for the screen, winning the 1938 Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director. The play had a Tony award-winning revival on Broadway in 2014 starring James Earl Jones and Rose Byrne.

This light period comedy explores the bizarre antics of the middle class, ultra-Bohemian Bliss family. Judith Bliss is a retired actress to whom all the world is literally a stage. The play takes place over a summer weekend in the mid 1920’s and follows the catastrophic and dramatic effect the family have on their four individually invited house guests.The writing is brilliant and a fine example of the camp, sarcastic, acidic humour for which Coward was renowned.

Tickets are £9(concessions £8) from www.staffordgatehousetheatre.co.uk or 01785 619080

Open Auditions (Theatre, Radio & Film) Medieval drama 1307
Open auditions for our coming project 1307. This is to be performed in and around Torbay, and Plymouth, in 2018. We are also looking into the possibilities of performing in Bristol, where part of the drama is set. 
2- Full length scripted and dramatised radio drama for local radio 
Recording to take place on at local radio station for subsequent broadcast. This will then pass back to us for online distribution, to create (we hope!) profit shares for everyone. This will be a single day, or two half-days of audio recording in Paignton, Devon

3- Short 10-min film (adapted from the above script) 
We are using part of the script, from the 1307 dawn raid on the Paris Temple, onwards, to create a short film, This will be filmed on location in Devon and Cornwall, with one short additional scene in Bristol. Actors doing the theatre show and radio play have priority on these roles, but if not able to appear in the film, we will be open to casting differently for this. 

Nb: with this project, we do need the full length cast to be the same for radio and theatre. Ideally we would like to cast the same actors in the same roles for the short film, but are open to changes if someone is unavailable for filming.

Mother Goose instantly loves Priscilla and agrees she should stay with her, but what she doesn’t know is that the good Fairy Friendship has played a hand in their meeting. For Priscilla is a princess from Goosegog Land and before she can assume her royal duties she must learn the way of mortals. The king and queen ask the fairy to find someone who is kind and true to help Priscilla on her first journey to Earth, and the fairy knows Mother Goose will bring out the best in her.

Everyone is over joyed when Priscilla begins to lay golden eggs, and suddenly Mother Goose is rich and her money troubles are over. However, all doesn’t stay happy for long when the Demon sets his sights on Mother Goose. He taunts the good fairy that he will tempt Mother Goose with greed and resentment, so selfish she’ll become she’ll lead a life of discontentment. The fairy disagrees, and warns the demon not count upon that prize as she hold the key to cause his downfall and demise.

Soon the Demon has his way and tempts Mother Goose with the one thing she doesn’t have and the thing she wants the most, youth and beauty. He persuades her to visit the magic pool and turns her against her dear friend Priscilla. As Mother Goose leaves the pool as a beautiful woman, Priscilla returns to Goosegog land having failed to complete her task.

Everyone wants the old Mother Goose back, but is it too late? Will she realise that beauty is not everything, and get Priscilla back? Or will the Demon succeed in his plan?

Elf The Musical JR. is based on the 2003 New Line Cinema hit and features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer) and Chad Beguelin (Disney's Aladdin On Broadway, The Wedding Singer), a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).

With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list, and his stepbrother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of the holidays

Huntingdon Drama Club present Arthur Miller’s masterpiece of 20th century drama The Crucible. Premiered in 1953 Miller’s dramatization of the Salem witch trials is a metaphor for Senator Joseph McCarthy’s communist witch hunts that rocked America in the 1950s. Miller’s play (though lukewarmly received on its premiere) has gone on to become his most-performed piece, revived regularly around the world, including recent productions in London at the Old Vic in 2014 and on Broadway in 2016 with British actor Ben Whishaw in the role of John Proctor.  

For this particular production the Club have chosen a venue that will add a certain spice to proceedings. The historic Court Room in Huntingdon Town Hall was built on the site of the 16th century trial of the ‘Warboys witches’. Alice Samuel and her family from the nearby village of Warboys were accused of witchcraft by a neighbouring family in 1589 & by 1593 had been tried & executed in Huntingdon. The intimate wooden court room lends itself perfectly to an atmospheric ‘in the round’ interpretation of the play where audience members will be just inches from the action.

Director Rae Goodwin has assembled a strong cast for the production, a mixture of familiar faces along with a number of actors making their debut performances with the club. The Crucible runs at Huntingdon Town Hall from 21-25 November at 7.30pm. Tickets available from Ticket Source via the club website www.huntingdondramaclub.org.uk, by telephone 0333 666 3366 or on the door. Tickets are limited to 69 per performance so early booking is advised! For more information about the Club and the production, visit the website and the club’s Facebook page.
