As Cranston and his motley band set up base camp, a meteor crashes nearby. Deciding to investigate, they set out towards the crash site - unaware of the danger that awaits not just them, but the whole of planet Earth.

Join three daring actors as they play over 15 roles in 85 minutes of shocks, spine tingling silliness, and blood curdling terror.

Carducci Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
The Carducci are always a huge hit with our audiences - superb musicians, and one of the finest string quartets around.

Haydn String Quartet Op. 20, No. 4
Glass String Quartet No. 2
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 11
----------
Webern Langsamer Satz
Beethoven String Quartet Op. 95

How many times have we had the Carducci Quartet? We think this must be their sixth visit to Richmond, and they are always a huge hit with our audiences. Superb musicians, personable, with an exceptional rapport, they are one of the finest string quartets around.

Tonight the Carduccis perform a generously proportioned concert. It includes a much-loved Haydn piece, one of the very first 'modern' string quartets, and Webern's highly charged Langsamer Satz, described as a "little masterpiece". Composed in 1905, Langsamer Satz was never publicly performed - astonishingly - until 1962, just a few years before Shostakovich's very different, very intense Quartet No. 11. The piece by Philip Glass is a companion to his Third Quartet, which the Carduccis performed in Richmond a few years ago, and which gave our audience such pleasure.

What a wonderful close to the 2016-17 Richmondshire Concerts season.

This live and passionate performance of Brel's songs (sung in English, French and Flemish) is interwoven with projected imagery, monologue and a narrative based on interviews and research of Brel's complex life.

Time: 7.30pm
My Sweet Patootie is contemporary roots and ragtime at its best.



It brings tight harmonies, monstrous guitar, sizzling fiddle and percussion together in one perfect package.

Founded in 2007 by Canadian Folk Music Award winners Sandra Swannell and Terry Young, the trio has a growing international reputation.

From humorous original swing to funky fiddle-tunes to exquisite ballads, their vintage-style song writing is rooted in folk, Americana and jazz; heavily influenced by the likes of Chet Atkins, Lenny Breau, Les Paul and Mary Ford, and the Andrews Sisters. Throw in a penchant for light-hearted satire and their love of artists like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams, and you get a show that has been described as two parts exemplary musicianship and one part vaudeville comedy.

Tickets from £8 to £16 (includes £1 restoration levy).

The Loves of Mars and Venus (or Mr Weaver's Dramatick Entertainment)
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 4.00pm - 5.00pm
This event is part of The Swaledale Festival.

Celebrating the 300th anniversary of the world’s first ballet, performed at Drury Lane Theatre in 1717, this enchanting production tells the story of John Weaver’s heroic struggle to create his groundbreaking dance drama in a theatre world which saw dance as a frivolous side show.

The magic and excitement of early 18th century theatre is evoked by an actor portraying Weaver and his stage character Vulcan, baroque dancers playing Venus and Mars, and an on-stage ensemble performing contemporary music by Lully, Purcell, William Croft and Jeremiah Clarke. The production includes original 18th century choreographies and splendid baroque costumes.

Tickets for this event are available from The Georgian Theatre Royal box office only, and not from Swaledale Festival.

Tickets from £12 to £16 with under 19s half price (includes £1 restoration levy).

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A production by Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society.

Every drama group knows the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! Scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and sound effects mistimed, as the ladies entertain with the cunning whodunit, ‘Murder At Checkmate Manor.’

And just in case the audience should get bored there's a Film Show and Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a prize! The crunch comes in the denouement when the ‘murderer’, about to be revealed, has to rush home to bandage up an injured daughter. But Mrs Reece, doyenne of the group, rises above the slings and arrows of outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide the final inventive twist.

Performances from Thursday 27 to Saturday 29 July and Thursday 3 to Saturday 5 July.

Tickets from £7.50 to £13.50 (includes £1 restoration levy).
