Malvern Theatre Players are proud to present
A technical comedy by Nick Wilkes

THE GET OUT

 

The curtain has fallen…

The performance has concluded and the audience are on their way home.
For some however, the evening has only just begun…

Props to pack away,
Furniture to move,
Scenery to take down,
Lights to lower,
Ropes to haul,
A lorry to pack,
A lost microphone to locate,
A romance to conclude,
And no accidents please…!

THE FOUR SEASONS STRING QUARTET WITH ALAN FAIRS @ The Coach House Theatre
Sep 14 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
THE FOUR SEASONS STRING QUARTET WITH ALAN FAIRS @ The Coach House Theatre

Style and fashion have been important in the evolution of dance and the concert displays some short dance pieces that show the way that dance has evolved through the last three hundred years. So let us entertain you with a minuet, a rumba, a waltz and a tango and other toe tappers. In the second part of the concert we listen to“the breath of the night wind” in a setting of Dover Beach by Samuel Barber with Alan Fairs as soloist, and some other songs for String Quartet.

The Four Seasons (Vyvyan Lucas and Celia Thomson: violins; Naomi Gaffney: viola; Robina Sabourin: cello) have known each other for many years and thoroughly enjoy meeting to explore the rich and intimate quartet Repertoire. As individuals we have played orchestrally in concert venues all round the country but the pleasure of playing chamber music comes more rarely. It is not often that one finds friends who happen to play the particular instruments that form a string quartet, find time when you are all free to meet to play, let alone travel for miles to meet!

Alan Fairs is an award winning opera singer from Worcestershire who now concentrates on concerts and oratorio. His performing career has ranged from recitals on BBC Radio3 to principal roles in operas around the world. He has also toured the UK with companies including the Welsh National Opera, English Touring Opera, Covent Garden and Glyndebourne.

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN

Adapted for the stage by Dave Simpson
From the novel by E Nesbit

By arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

A superb adaptation for the stage of E Nesbit’s classic novel. Following the wrongful arrest of their father, an Edwardian family are forced to move from their London home to the country and endure a life of genteel poverty. Their modest house, “Three Chimneys”, is close to a railway line which becomes the children’s main interest and source of many adventures, shared with the family of the station porter. Saving lives, rescuing a Russian refugee, looking after an injured schoolboy, the children enlist the help of a wealthy passenger to get their father out of prison and reunite the family.

The story was first performed as a play in 1984 at the Coliseum in London, became a famous film starring Jenny Agutter as Roberta and Bernard Cribbins as Perks, and continues to be performed regularly, most recently as a musical. Malvern Theatre Players reprise their sell-out 1990 Malvern Festival Theatre production in their new home at the Coach House Theatre.

A Christmas treat for all the family.

          A brilliant adaptation

                    Chuffing marvellous

                              A classic masterpiece

                                        It’s perfect

                                                  Glows with innocence

                                                            A First Class journey
