Sunday 19th October, 8:00pm
Tickets £15.00*/£13.00* (conc)

Karine draws from folk music’s long tradition while keeping pace with the ceaselessly changing times. Her talent for crafting unique, enduring melodies, her gift for saying just enough without overstating her case, the range and dynamism of her arrangements, all come together in songs of powerful contemporary relevance. She also has the purest and most approachable of singing voices, drawing the listener towards her in the same way one might lean towards a late night tale by the fireside.

With glowing reviews for the evocative lyricism and cinematic musical depth of her 2012 album "Traces", Scottish singer-songwriter Karine Polwart will be playing a raft of songs from the album and some live favourites at all her dates in 2014.

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.

HELEN FORRESTER’S TWOPENCE TO CROSS THE MERSEY
THE SMASH HIT SHOW RETURNS AS A BRAND NEW STAGE PLAY!

The producers that brought you the record-breaking musical are delighted to announce the return of Helen Forrester’s Twopence To Cross The Mersey in a new format of a straight stage play. Based on Forrester’s best-selling memoir, Twopence will cross the Mersey for the first time when it visits Wirral’s Floral Pavilion Theatre from Sunday 19th – Thursday 23rd April 2015.

This much loved account tells the true story of a young girl and her formerly wealthy family as they are suddenly thrown into poverty during the Great Depression of the 1930’s.

Unbeknown to them however, they are in for a terrible shock. Loved by millions, see Helen’s dramatic, moving and heart-warming tale come to life as she and her family are forced to survive in the slums amongst the streetwise working class.

A full all-star cast to be announced soon.
