Coming up next

We will rock you! A biopic of Freddie Mercury of Queen was maybe a biopic you didn't know you wanted. That is until you get into the cinema for a foot-stamping, heart-beating, joy-rousing film that captures the birth of the original super-group and their flamboyant larger than life stage presence, here played by Rami Malek.                         

 

Director:
Bryan Singer
Starring:
Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee

The play is set in 1963 in Brighton. Out-of-work skiffle player Francis Henshall becomes separately employed by two men – Roscoe Crabbe, a gangster, and Stanley Stubbers, an upper class twit.

Francis tries to keep the two from meeting, in order to avoid each of them learning that Francis is also working for someone else. Complicating events, Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe in disguise, her twin brother Roscoe having been killed by her boyfriend, who is none other than Stanley. Complicating events still further is local mobster Charlie the Duck, who has arranged his daughter Pauline's engagement to Roscoe despite her preference for over-the-top amateur actor Alan Dangle. Even further complications are prompted by several letters, a very heavy trunk, an extremely elderly waiter and Francis' pursuit of his twin passions: Dolly, Charlie's feminist bookkeeper, and food.

Tickets available on-line and from Congleton TIC and online

The 300-seat theatre is located just on the edge of the town centre near the leisure centre. It is the home of various amateur groups as well as being available to hire for shows. The original theatre built in the 1980s has been extended. The extension has rehearsal rooms, scenery store and provides better access and facilities for all theatre users.

These facilities enable shows of all types to be staged, from plays to musicals, films to dance shows. pantomimes to concerts. So we aim to have during our season something to all tastes.
