A party of assorted railway travellers find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country station in the evening. The Station Master tries to get them to leave the site as he is closing the station for the night.
Given their reluctance to go, and after they’ve refused his order (citing the lack of alternative accommodation for them within several miles), he warns them of a threat, if they remain, from the supernatural danger of a spectral old railway carriage train, the ghost of one that fatally wrecked in the locality several years before, that sometimes haunts the particular line they are now on at night, which brings death upon all those who set eyes on it. Incredulous of his story they still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a fateful night on the station ...
Why not enjoy a superb two course dinner ahead of visiting the theatre to watch Congleton Players in action at Bojangles Brasserie in central Congleton?

The Greatest Showman is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
The Greatest Showman is directed by exciting new filmmaker, Michael Gracey, with songs by Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land) and starring Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman. Jackman is joined by Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Zac Efron and Rebecca Ferguson.

Daneside Theatre is an independent theatre with a charitable status that aims to provide a venue for the community that all ages can benefit from.
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.
For further details of our shows this current season see the What’s On section.
Over the next two years we will be embarking on an exciting project to improve the foyer area of the theatre, and small improvements to the auditorium and back stage areas.
