Limehouse Lizzy
Limehouse Lizzy
Saturday 27th September, 8:00pm
Tickets £17.00*/£15.00* (conc)

Please note that this is an all standing gig

Limehouse Lizzy have been officially named one of the hardest working acts in the UK, alongside some of the country's biggest & most popular performers. They were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society, and recieved their award from PRS Chairman and Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter (Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Tom Jones) Guy Fletcher OBE.

Renowned for an action-packed pyrothechnic-fuelled explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute in their set to the late Gary Moore (ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist and world renowned solo artist) who sadly passed away last year.

Attention to detail, playful audience interaction and that all important X-factor that leaves you with the feeling of witnessing the real thing have led to their performance being described as “beyond tribute”, by both audience and critics alike.

Following the enormous success of their ˜Live & Dangerous” & ˜Dedication” tours, the band embarked upon their “Into the Limelight” tour to tie in with their appearance on an episode of BBC2’s ‘Arena’ documentary series of the same name.

The tour travelled as far as a headline slot at a rock festival in Greece, and the Virgin Atlantic Music festival in Barbados. The band appeared alongside diverse world music acts, and played a Thin Lizzy set representing the celtic rock genre.

In 2014 the band's European tour continues to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of the hard-living, hard-rocking, yet at times surprisingly tender and romantic artist that was Philip Lynott. This year they will be appearing in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium.

Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like ”Whisky in the Jar” and “Black Rose”, amongst the usual razzamatazz and classic tracks “The Boys are Back in Town”, “Sarah” and many others we’ve come to expect from one of the most highly rated acts on the circuit.

Jason Durr is the new Poirot. 

Hercule Poirot
returns to the stage in Agatha Christie's Black Coffee, now starring Jason Durr from ITV's hit series Heartbeat in the role of the famous Belgian sleuth. The cast also includes Agatha Christie Company regulars: Gary Mavers who is best known for playing heart-throb doctor Andrew Attwood in Peak Practice and Ben Nealon, perhaps best loved for his role as Capt Forsythe in the ITV drama Soldier Soldier. Also included in this year’s cast are Deborah Grant, who has starred in numerous television shows including Not Going Out, Peak Practice and Bergerac, Oliver Mellor, who for 4 years has played Dr. Matt Carter in Coronation Street, and Georgina Leonidas whose credits include playing the cursed Katie Bell in the last two Harry Potter movies.

A quintessential English country estate is thrown into chaos following the murder of eccentric inventor Sir Claud Amory, and the theft of his new earth shattering formula. Arriving at the estate just moments too late, one man immediately senses a potent brew of despair, treachery, and deception amid the estate's occupants. That man is Hercule Poirot.

In the first play ever written by Agatha Christie we are introduced to a character who went onto become the most famous detective of all time and the only fictional character ever to receive a full-page obituary in the New York Times.

WATCH THE WIRRAL GLOBE'S VIDEO OF THE PANTO LAUNCH

A beautiful girl, Snow White, takes refuge in the forest in the house of seven dwarfs to hide from her stepmother, The Wicked Queen. The Queen is jealous because she wants to be "the fairest in the land," and Snow White's beauty surpasses her own. Can the seven dwarfs save Snow White from the Wicked Queen’s evil plans? Let’s put it this way, red apples don’t get a particularly good reputation in this enchanting tale!

Leading the cast as The Wicked Queen is Coronation Street’s TUPELE DORGU, Preston born Tupele trained in drama and musical theatre at the London Studio Centre. She made her West End debut in Mamma Mia! although she is probably best known for playing Kelly Crabtree (also known as Legs) in Coronation Street for five years. Tupele’s other TV credits include: MI High (CBBC), Natalie Vance in Merseybeat, and Keely James in Waterloo Road. Her other theatre credits include: Teechers (UK Tour) Educating Rita (Lichfield Garrick), and Chicago (No1 Tour).

From Channel 5’s Milkshake!, the hugely talented OLIVIA BIRCHENOUGH will be play a glittering Snow White. Olivia trained at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and with the National Youth Theatre. She will resume touring with the nationwide theatre show Milkshake! Party Party! after Christmas.

Director CHRIS PIZZEY will also plays Muddles. With extensive theatre credits, Chris will be recognisable to television audiences as Mr Stephen in The Basil Brush Show, Trevor in The Legend of Dick and Dom and Sarah Jane’s father in The Sarah Jane Adventures. He has been a long-time member of the UK Productions panto company and this will be his second time directing Snow White.

Panto dame extraordinaire, STEPHEN DAVID, plays the hilarious Nursie, whilst a cast of seven dwarfs will create more madness and mayhem as they try to keep Snow White safe from the evil clutches of The Wicked Queen.

Musical Director STEVE ALLAN JONES and Choreographer and Assistant Director ANDREW MARGERISON return for the 5th year running for what has become one of the most successful pantos in the Liverpool City Region.

With a mix of well known songs, cheeky comedy, great casts, stunning sets, beautiful costumes, outstanding quality and value for money, it’s become an unmissable festive treat for families across the region.
