Tickets £18.50* (£16.50* conc)


Starring Tina Malone, Billy Butler, Asa Murphy, Lynne Fitzgerald and Lesley Butler.

Wirral writer Brian McCann’s Down Our Street is the musical play celebrating the life and times of Cammell Laird, from the industrial revolution to the present day. For well over a century and a half, ‘The Yard’ was the employer of thousands upon thousands of people from, the Wirral, across the water in Liverpool and beyond. The town of Birkenhead was built around the Shipbuilding industry and most families, if not all had some connection to Cammell Laird. Through drama, comedy and song, Down Our Street celebrates this through the eyes of the people of Merseyside and the workers ‘down the yard’.

The show, once described in the media as ‘Birkenhead’s Les Miserables’ has had several outings, the last being here at the Floral Pavilion in 2017, which enjoyed packed houses and audiences leaving the theatre singing! This new production has a revised Act 2, bringing the Cammell Laird story right up to date.

"Down Our Street is a triumph of belief and sincere honesty and a wonderfully funny, enlightening, educational and sometimes heart-breaking musical" - Ian D. Hall, Liverpool Sound and Vision

Shylock
Sunday 22nd September 2019, 7:30pm
Tickets £15.00 (£13.00 conc)


Winner of best touring production – Wales theatre awards 2018

"Shylock deserves to be packed out every show. It reflects the deepest love and understanding of Shakespeare's genius, and mixes us adeptly into the problems, pressures, traditions, censors prejudices and passions of Elizabethan theatre."(The Scotsman)
"Innovative, delightful, exceptional!"(The Independent)

A new one man play from the team that brought you Burton and Dylan Thomas: Clown in the Moon. -

'The tragic, funny and often unbelievable life of fiction's most famous Jew'.

Is Shylock the Jewish moneylender from The Merchant of Venice a villain or victim?

He has been portrayed in ways which reflected how Jews were popularly viewed - from comic villain in Shakespeare's day to a victim of racial discrimination nowadays. Gareth Armstrong's award winning solo play confronts these Jewish stereotypes through the eyes of his only friend - and the only other Jewish man in the whole of Shakespeare - Tubal. Promoted to centre stage from his minor role in The Merchant of Venice, he proves a born comic storyteller.

Celebrating the richness of Shakespeare's language and conjuring up a whole cast of characters from Portia to Pontius Pilate, from Romeo to Max Reinhardt, and from Barabbas to Richard Burbage, this dazzling, moving, often hilarious play is a fascinating exploration of Shylock and his people.

Written and Directed by Gareth Armstrong
Performed by Rhodri Miles
SHYLOCK runs 90 minutes and plays with an interval.

Ruby Wax - How To Be Human
Wednesday 9th October 2019, 7:30pm
All Tickets £23.75


Based on her bestselling book, Ruby’s new show How To Be Human answers every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.

We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we’ll still have our minds. Hopefully we’ll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness.

This show is the follow up to Ruby’s sell out shows Sane New World and Frazzled and incorporates what she discovered whilst writing her latest book, including finding out about how the mind works with monk Gelong Thubten and learning from neuroscientist Ash Ranpura where everything that makes us ‘us’ can be found in the brain.

Outrageously witty and smart, blending brilliant comedy and insightful life lessons, How To Be Human is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone.

In fact, it’s said the first word he spoke was ‘Uranus’. In this, his brand-new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment you’ll currently find, in the world, possibly? as he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all-round entertainers shy away from. Such as:

Are we alone in the universe?
Is there life on Mars bars?
2lbs of potatoes.
Packet of ginger nuts.
Don’t lose this shopping list.

‘Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasn’t in the show I’d definitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and definitely not asking for a refund. Also not rustling sweet wrappers and fiddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!’. Arthur

“The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.”

Professor Henry Higgins makes a wager that he can raise a lowly Cockney flower girl—Eliza Doolittle—to the status of a high-society debutante in Lerner and Loewe's hit musical, My Fair Lady. Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 play, Pygmalion, My Fair Lady plays as powerfully for modern-day audiences as it did in the original 1956 Broadway production. Eliza's transformation illuminates society's prejudices, the gender divide and personal identity. Featuring much loved songs such as ‘On the Street Where You Live’, ‘With A Little Bit of Luck’ and ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’, My Fair Lady has been described as ‘wise, witty and winning’, ‘a work of theatre magic’ and ‘an irresistible hit’.

Dangerous Obsession
by N.J. Crisp

A sunny afternoon... Sally Driscoll waters the plants in the conservatory of her luxurious home. It’s a peaceful scene until John Barrett unexpectedly appears - and he’s not selling double glazing. What happened in Torquay? Will Sally and her husband ever feel safe in their own home again?

Dangerously obsessed, Barrett strips away the conflicting secrets of the Driscoll’s apparently perfect lives until nothing is left in this compulsive psycho-thriller by a master of the genre.

‘If you value your life, you will not move. Do you hear me? Do You?’

Quotes from the London production...

'...a gripping play, punctuated with gunshots and eliciting complete silence in the theatre at critical points, when the audience is clearly holding its collective breath' The Stage
'...Has so many surprises that each new revelation turned up like unexpected hidden cards in a poker game' London Evening Standard
'Achieves the near impossible by tightening its grip in a steady way, then exerting greater pressure after the breaking point seems inevitable' Daily Mail
'So powerfully applies the tricks of suspense that the audience dared not to cough for fear of missing the next turn of the screw' The London Times

The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a long established credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums and has shared the stage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, James van Praagh and Lisa Williams. Tony demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.

Recent legislative guidelines insist that any Evening of Mediumship should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’. Tony certainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertain but more important, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to come away untouched by the experience.

The show is investigational and for the purpose of entertainment.

The hysterical sequel to the smash hit show Menopause the Musical is coming in 2020!

In our brand-new show, Cruising Through the Menopause, we fast forward five years to catch up with the same four ladies as they set off on the high seas for tales of their lives, loves and losses.

Hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, memory lapses, weight gain - these are a few of our favourite menopausal things! Cruising Through the Menopause is a hilarious, heartfelt, reassuring and unflinching look at the joys of menopause and friendship. When your life is a bumpy ride full of twists and turns it’s hard to find true friends. But step on board the Hot Flush and we’ll take you on a sail of self-discovery, love and friendship all backed by a soundtrack of toe tapping parodied hits!

For these four ladies the menopause was not the beginning of the end, but the beginning of a beautiful friendship where love conquers, and friendships never fail.

So, it’s all aboard and we’ll have you laughing, singing and maybe even dancing on¬stage, on the high seas as you join us for “Menopause the Musical 2 - Cruising Through Menopause”.

Nathan Carter and His Band (plus support)
Thursday 13th February 2020, 7:30pm
All Tickets £31.75


One of the UK’s most exciting live performers, his energetic showmanship is proving irresistible for fans, even scoring him a prestigious slot performing for Pope Francis in Croke Park in Dublin, as well as shows in Ireland as the 3Arena Dublin and SSE Arena Belfast. This year, he marked St Patricks day with his very own show on BBC Radio Ulster, joined by fellow Country stars Catherine McGrath and Chloe Agnew.

With tracks such as ‘Wagon Wheel’ and ‘I Wanna Dance’ receiving hit status, he is one of Ireland’s biggest artists, and with an incredible 7 top 10 albums under his belt, he is well on his way to becoming a household name. Most recently, the 2018 ‘Born for the Road’ shot straight into the top 5 at number 3.

Growing up in a house where Country and Western music filled the air, Nathan was exposed to classic songs of Johnny Cash, Don Williams and Dolly Parton. From the tender age of 4 years old, not only learning to play guitar, piano and accordion, which plays a vital part in his live show, Nathan quickly became head chorister in the Liverpool Boys choir where he toured the world and even performed in front of the Pope in Rome.

Taken out of school to care for her younger brothers and sisters while her parents struggled to re-build their shattered lives, Helen is treated as an unpaid slave and desperate to escape.

By 1939, now aged twenty and with Britain on the brink of war, she has never been kissed by a man. But things start looking up for Helen when she meets a tall strong seaman and falls in love.

Starring Mark Moraghan who plays John Forrester (Helen’s father). Mark is best known in Holby City, Coronation Street and BrooksideEric Potts will play 'Mr Ellis', Helen's fiery-tempered boss.

The Russian State Opera
Presents premiere of

Aida – Timeless and emotional opera with breath-taking melodies
Music by Giuseppe Verdi sung in Italian with English surtitles.

‘A boon to the opera in regional theatres.’ The Stage

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live Orchestra numbering over 30 musicians

After its successful season of Madama Butterfly, Carmen and La Traviata last year, Russian State Opera returns to delight you with the premiere of Opera, Aida. The brand-new production guarantees to delight you with sumptuous sets and splendid new costumes.

Verdi brings the ancient Egypt on stage with evolving love story at the backdrop of war. The princess of Ethiopia (Aida) falls in love with the Egyptian General (Radames) and he is also besotted by her. Radames is chosen to lead the war with Ethiopia by the king and Aida is left to choose between her lover or her father and her country.

Aida is a gripping love story that will keep you on the edge of your seats until the very end.

Aria such as ‘Se quel Guerrier io fossi!’ sung by Radames in the first act is one of the most famous arias of the operatic world. The most powerful melody comes in the second part of the Opera in the form of Triumphal March to highlight victory and triumph.

A deeply moving opera overflowing with emotion and containing moments of despair and uncertainty. Aida is an unforgettable, inspiring experience.
