For the last twenty years Wychcraft Big Band has enjoyed entertaining audiences all over the North West. We are a local group of twenty musicians who love playing Big Band arrangements from the 1930s to the present day. Our playlists feature classic numbers made famous by artists such as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Frank Sinatra and Micael Buble.

We'll get you "In the Mood" and "Fly you to the Moon" with our tunes! Our Musical Director, Simon Lodge, studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and leads us from the front on trombone and vocals.

Director Nigel Evans

Mortimer Brewster is living a happy life:

he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene -- his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt and his great-grandfather used to scalp Indians for pleasure -- but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan. (who strangely now resembles Boris Karloff) returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé -- all while trying to keep his own sanity. as well. An uproarious farce on plays involving murder, Arsenic and Old Lace written by Joseph Kesselring has become a favourite amongst theatres.

Tickets £8 (£7 concessions) each night, available online and from Congleton TIC.

Please note our Early-bird offer of a ticket price of just £7 including a free programme for all tickets purchased before the end of March 2019

The Daneside Theatre

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.
