Bryan Singer

Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee

One Man Two Governors

One Man Two Governors

Presented by Congleton Players Amateur Theatre Club

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.

Pinked Floyd

Pinked Floyd

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

www.pinked-floyd.co.uk

“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)

“Stunning rendition of Echoes and Andrea’s Great gig in the sky was the best I have heard since the release of DSOTM. Can’t wait for the next show” (Brian Parker)

“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)

Congleton Town Council Youth Committee present..

At 2pm.

Tickets now available from Congleton TIC - ONLY £3.00

It’s 1930s London and everyone’s favourite nanny has returned – Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) is ready to spread joy and magic in the much-anticipated sequel to the 1964 classic. This time, she finds that the Banks children have grown up and found themselves in need of a friendly face – as well as a little bit of magic. A Disney musical and sequel starring Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Ben Wishaw, along with Dick Van Dyke, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, and Meryl Streep.

Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) has a habit of turning up when she’s least expected – and when she’s needed the most.

And that’s exactly what happens on a particularly stormy day in 1930s London.

Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer) and her brother Michael (Ben Whishaw) are all grown up. But times are hard in Depression-era Britain, and, Jane, Michael, and Michael’s three children are heavy with sadness, reeling from the recent death of the children’s mother. To make matters worse, Michael is struggling to pay the bills and is at risk of losing their home.

Which is why they’re so glad when, at the very house where it all began on Cherry Tree Lane, Michael and Jane’s former nanny returns.

Presented by Congleton Players Amateur Theatre Club

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.
