bag

In the next couple of months the Tarvin Community Centre is to put on a cornucopia of good theatre. Aiming to serve a varied audience the Committee has lined up three productions that should please theatre goers of all ages.

On March 6th at 4.15pm younger audiences and their significant grown-up can enjoy CAKE, an imaginative piece of theatre from the Whalley Range All Stars. A heroic knight does battle with a set of false teeth threatening the community that live in a large cake. Following the performance, and after refreshments that will include cake, there will be an arts activity session based on the play. Tickets are £4 for children under 10, which includes refreshments, and £5 for adults. They are now available in the Post Office, from 01829 741962, and on line at www.cheshireruraltouringarts.ticketsource.co.uk. The show should be over by 5.30 just to get the little ones home for tea — though maybe not more cake!

A couple of weeks later sees the return of the incomparable Ashton Hayes Theatre Club with a sparkling production of The Ladykillers. Written by Graham Lineham, whose other works include Father Ted, this is the story of a ruthless gang of robbers who get their comeuppance when they lodge with the seemingly sweet and innocent little old lady. Some of you will remember a wonderful Ealing Comedy made in 1955 and starring Alex Guinness and Peter Sellars. There are 4 performances, on March 17th, 19th 20th and 21st starting at 7.45pm. Tickets always sell out very fast for this and are available by calling 01829 751943 or 07707 830286. They are £8 for adults and £6 for children.

To complete the trio of great plays, on April 16th there will be a performance of Oscar Wilde's witty comedy of manners The Importance of Being Earnest. This company is new to us, Consensus Theatre is based in Warrington and are a group of experienced amateur actors dedicated to bringing live theatre to rural venues. Having been to the Community Centre with marketing material they seem to be extremely well organised and passionate about their production. Tickets will be £10 and will be available for sale soon.

The Community Centre has more plays planned for later in the year. For details of these and for all other community Centre activities, please go to our website www.tarvincommunitycentre.org, or visit our Facebook page www.facebook.com/tarvincc
