Panto - Sleeping Beauty

The 2017 Panto is the classic Sleeping Beauty, penned as ever by the ever-reliable team of Chris Shinn and Julie Petrucci and directed this year by Phil Law and Holly Collas. As always this will be a classic family panto with heros, villains, a singalong, a UV scene and much, much more - what more could you ask for during one of those long dark evenings! Below, some photos from the dress rehearsal.


Spring - Lady Glanville's Fratillery

Our Spring production is a new play by WCP's Tim Boden. Starting life three years ago as a very successful festival production of the same name, this full length development retains the mix of comedy, pathos with a touch of supernatural much admired in the original. The are open auditions for the large cast, with lots of opportunities for parts both small and large, on Thursday 26th and Monday 30th January at 7:30pm at Waterbeach school. For more details see here.


Festival - The Dumb Waiter

This year's festival entry is Harold Pinter's The Dumb Waiter, a truly classic piece of theatre. 1960: two men in a basement in Birmingham, the lavatory doesn't flush and there's no tea, and now someone wants an Ormitha Macarounada. As the tension mounts, can things get any worse...?

With Chris Shinn as Gus, and Martin George as Ben, this promises to be an entertaining and engrossing 40 minutes. The Dumb Waiter is on at Sawston Drama Festival (Thur 21st-Sat 23rd March) and Cambridge (Tue 25th-Sat 29th April) - please do come and give us your support!
