Thursday, 4th October 2018 - Friday, 5th October 2018
The Kaiser and I
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A powerful drama set against the back drop of the First World War.

It's Berlin, 1914, and the music has to stop. Kaiser Wilhelm has summoned a dance instructress from England to put his officers through their paces, but now war is only days away…

From ballroom to battlefield and beyond, this intriguing two-person show charts the friendship of a man and a woman caught in their nations' crossfire.

Written by Stuart Fortey and directed by Dominic Goodwin, the production stars Cal Stockbridge and Dominic Goodwin who is making a welcome return to The Georgian Theatre Royal following his years as the legendary pantomime dame.

“An unusual story . . . a wonderfully written play skilfully combining humour and stark moments of wrenching sadness.”
Buxton Fringe Review

Thursday, 11th October 2018
We Are Bronte
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A riotous interpretation of the Bronte myth, taking the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings as their inspiration.

Morecambe and Wise meets David Lynch in this madcap reimagining of the Brontë myth, presented in Publick Transport's irreverent and playful style.

With only a handful of props, two performers combine rigorous physical theatre with anarchic comedy to deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness and revenge, but also themselves. So, expect wind, spooky houses and really bad coughs!

Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Brontë adaptation.

"a mini comedic masterpiece...ambitious, risk-taking, edgy, just downright different." StageTalk Magazine

“masters of their art" The Scotsman

Tickets from £11 to £16 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.

Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal

The show is a 2-hour journey through the whole musical career of Eric Clapton including all of his best-known hits - Wonderful Tonight, I Shot the Sheriff, Lay Down Sally, Crossroads, Tears in Heaven, Layla and even an unplugged segment.

Saturday, 13th October 2018
Richmondshire Concerts present a piano recital by Joanna MacGregor
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
One of the world's most innovative and creative classical pianists.

Joanna MacGregor combines her role as Head of Piano at the Royal Academy of Music with a busy career as concert soloist, teacher and festival curator. She is famous as a performer of Bach and Scarlatti, but her repertoire is diverse, as she shows tonight on a powerful Steinway D concert grand.

From their strong opening chords, through the lyrical middle sections to the stormy finish, Beethoven's 32 Variations explore not only the range and colour of the piano but also every imaginable technique. Then Chopin's Mazurkas, rich and flamboyant, lead into the young Alberto Ginastera's vividly imagined Argentinian folkloric dances, concluding a virtuosic first half. Sofia Gubaidulina's Chaconne follows, another youthful work based on an older form. Black Earth, written by Fazıl Say in 1997, is a fusion of Eastern and Western styles and brings a note of loneliness and loss . Finally, Beethoven's great middle-period Appassionata sonata closes an evening of extraordinary emotions.

Tickets are £20 at www.rsconcerts.org or at Castle Hill Bookshop or on the door, subject to availability

Phil Nichol: Your Wrong
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
An evening with popular stand-up comedian Phil Nichol.

Trump. Your wrong. Brexit. Your wrong. Facebook. Your wrong. Tinder. Your wrong. Religion. Your wrong. Fashion. Your wrong. Grammar. Your wrong!

We are being watched. Whether it’s the grammar Nazis on the Internet, the court of public opinion in the media, the government through our smart phones, the aliens from deep in the crust of the moons of Jupiter, or by God himself, we are being monitored. The pressure to ‘get it right’ is tremendous! Right?

'Your Wrong' questions the nature of understanding and explores our modern day need to be right about everything.

“…a show that makes you laugh and think while you are watching, and then wakes you up in the night to laugh and think again.” The Scotsman

“.. not just comedy but soul-quenching storytelling at its finest” EdFestMag

14+ Age Recommendation. May contain adult themes and strong language.

Jimmy's Fiddle
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A fantastic evening's entertainment presented by Tom McConville and Alan Fitzsimmons.

James Hill was probably the most famous fiddler on Tyneside during the late Georgian and early Victorian periods. He wrote more than 40 tunes, mainly for hornpipes, inspired and informed by the places and characters he came to know.

This story is a reflective account of his life, told through ‘Jimmy’s ghost’ and set in and around The Hawk public house, which was owned by his future father-in-law. The narrative unfolds to a back-drop of James Hill’s own compositions, clog dancing and songs from the time, incorporating some newly commissioned pieces.

Featuring two top virtuoso fiddle players Tom Mcconville (BBC Musician of the Year) and Stewart Hardy, this show provides fantastic entertainment for all the family. Tom and Stewart will be joined by two of the North East’s finest singers Alan Fitzimmons and Jim Mageean and clog dancing champion Natalie Rae.

Tickets costing £15 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.
