Happy Days

Happy Days

Presented by SOL Theatre School

Goodbye grey skies, hello blue!. Happy Days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the inforgettable "king of cool" Arthur "the Fonze" Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures television series, Happy Days, a new Musical reintroduces one of America's best loved families, the Cunninghams -- yes Howard, Marion and Joanie are here too -- to a whole new generation of kids and parents.

The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hangout, Arnold's,  is in danger of demolition. So the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and a TV-worthy wrestling match. Even Pinky Tuscadero, Fonzie's childhood swaetheart, returns to help and -- lo and behold! -- they rekindle their old flame.

Tickets £10.00 (£8.00 concessions) from Congleton Tourist Information Centre on 01260 271095 or Louise Carter on 01260 290050.

Murder at Checkmate Manor

Murder at Checkmate Manor

Presented by Congleton Players Amateur Theatre Club

 The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery ..


MURDER AT CHECKMATE MANOR

by David McGillivray and
Walter Zerlin Jnr
Directed by Howard Bell
by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

The Farndale Avenue Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr.

 Dates
Tuesday 3 rd - Saturday 7 th October at 7.30 pm
TICKETS: £8 (£7- Concessions) - each night

The four ladies of The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society are a force to be reckoned with. The sheer scale of their ambition in mounting “Murder at Checkmate Manor” is only matched by their overwhelming confidence in their abilities to master all fourteen parts.


Even though Gordon, their stage manager, nobly steps into the breach at the last minute their production is blighted by a series of disasters. The play is set in the drawing room of Checkmate Manor. The family gathers for the reading of the will of the late Sir Reginald Bishop. However someone else has designs on the Checkmate millions and will stop at nothing to get them. A string of grisly murders ensues where everyone has a motive and everyone is a suspect in a classic whodunnit farce. The crunch comes in the denouement when the murderer is about to be revealed. Luckily Mrs Reece, doyenne of the group, can be relied upon to save the day with a final twist to the plot. Sit back, sympathise and enjoy!


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?

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 ...
