A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac dazzles whether with ferocious wordplay at a verbal joust or with brilliant swordplay in a duel. But, convinced that his appearance renders him unworthy of the love of a devoted friend, the luminous Roxanne, Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her and Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN tells the remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer from Barrow-in-Furness who, with the support of his family and friends, managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open qualifying, despite never playing a round of golf before. With pluckiness and unwavering self-belief, Maurice pulls off a series of stunning, hilarious and heartwarming attempts to compete at the highest level of professional golf, drawing the ire of the golfing elite but becoming a British folk hero in the process.

Pinked Floyd

Pinked Floyd
20 May 19:30pm

This exciting Pink Floyd tribute band return for what has now become an annual appearance following their highly acclaimed shows at Daneside Theatre in the last four years.

Offering an engaging and energetic show, they have been especially praised for the accuracy of their performance based on the studio versions of music spanning the entire output of the Floyd from early days, with firm favourites Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall particularly featured. The music is enhanced by a fabulous light-show including Floyd's distinctive circular screen. All your favourites are featured, and maybe a couple of less familiar tracks for the real afficionado.


“Unbelievably awesome! Music buzzing in our heads on our walk home and still singing today” (M&T)

“What a brilliant performance, the band was faultless. A brilliant set of tracks. Can’t wait to see them again” (P Abbott)

“Finishing with Comfortably Numb, Alan Tarpey blew the crowd away with his jaw-dropping solo that the audience were still gasping and chattering about as they left the room” (Seren Hughes-Jones, QuaysNews)

“My heroes will never be forgotten as long as you are on the stage and that’s from a 68 year-old roadie of the original PF! You are another brick in the wall!" (David Larkin, former PF roadie)

Bouncers and Shakers

Bouncers and Shakers
21 Jul 19:30pm
22 Jul 19:30pm
23 Jul 19:30pm

Presented by Phoenix Theatre Company

Two plays, one night!

Bouncers is Bursting with imagination and wit and presented by just four actors, it is an outrageous and hilarious parody of the disco scene. The four brutish bouncers of the title portray over twenty different characters as we are invited for a night out on the town. We see them as giggly girls and lads on the make preparing for the big night out as we follow their progress to the disco floor. There, we also meet an entire cross-section of disco-goers, including Hooray Henrys, pogoing punks and drunken slobs! The evening’s events are set against the tatty glitzy glamour, flashing lights and pulsating beat of the nightclub scene.

Shakers is the local trendy cocktail bar where everyone wants to be seen, from the local check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads tittering at the thought of a `long comfortable screw’. We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses who work there. Rushed off their feet, underpaid and overworked, they try to smile and help the difficult customers whilst coping with their own personal problems. A fascinating and often hilarious view of the reality which lurks behind the plastic palms and the pina coladas. `Another excellent piece of theatre which leaves the audience well entertained and also thinking.
