Frith Piano Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
Return visit by a high-quality chamber ensemble

Schubert Piano Quintet in A major, 'The Trout'
Mozart Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor K478
----------
Vaughan Williams Piano Quintet in C minor

We haven't had a visit from the full Frith Quartet since 2009, and it's good to welcome them back. This time the group is accompanied by John Tattersdill (double-bassist for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra). In Schubert's Trout the unusual instrumentation brings an added richness to this sunny, attractive work, and allows the cello to be more playful than is usual. Vaughan Williams chose the same un-familiar lineup for his own Brahmsian Piano Quintet. In between the two quintets is Mozart's K478, widely held to be the first major piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire, and considered exceptionally difficult when it was published. Fortunately that shouldn't be a problem for tonight's pianist, the excellent Benjamin Frith.

Audition for 'The D-Day Dodgers'
Venue: Arthaus Gallery Mackenzie Thorpe
Time: 15:00
We are producing a closet drama of a play called 'The D-Day Dodgers' by Rob Wilson. And WE WANT YOU to audition for it.

'The D-Day Dodgers' by Rob Wilson tells the story of two men in the Eighth Army during World War Two. They become close friends through interests in music and singing and amidst all the fighting they enter a talent contest... All else is to be revealed, but it's reminiscent of 'It Ain't Half Hot Mum'!

A closet drama means that it will be read rather than acted, so we're looking for good storytellers and anyone who can play around with a few accents is a bonus! It's a full male cast but we are also casting for a narrator to be spoken by a woman.

RSVP to the audition here https://www.facebook.com/events/755967371218882/

For more info, call Rhiannon (Producer) on 01748 826605

Mr Darcy Loses the Plot
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A comic look at the world of Jane Austen with award-winning LipService Theatre.

Jane Austen sits writing, her quill scurrying across the vellum. She is dreaming up Darcy, a proud, lip-curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her work. Now left to his own devices, Darcy embroiders his own storyline whilst his creator stitches her quilt. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a different tune.

Award-winning comedy duo LipService, makers of Withering Looks and Inspector Norse, explore the world of women writers, scribbling in secret or under pseudonyms, squeezing in their writing amongst the hustle and bustle of taking tea, choosing chintz and the odd attack of the vapours. A celebration of Jane Austen’s life 200 years on.

“The glorious, splendidly silly comic duo” The Independent

“The Laurel and Hardy of literary deconstruction” The Guardian

Friday, 24th February 2017 - Saturday, 25th February 2017
Northanger Abbey
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: Various
A delightful stage version of Jane Austen's earliest novel.

Catherine Morland loves a good novel and the more ‘horrid’ it is the better. At 17, she is taken by her aunt to Bath where she encounters the social whirl denied her at home. When Catherine accepts an invitation to the Tilney’s country seat at Northanger Abbey, lurid images from her favourite gothic novel Mysteries of Udolpho threaten to overwhelm her. However, all misunderstandings are eventually resolved and, as in all the best Jane Austen novels, the young heroine finally gets her man!

This delightful stage version of Jane Austen’s earliest novel is adapted by acclaimed Austen specialist Tim Luscombe, whose Mansfield Park was also produced and toured by the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds.

“Tim Luscombe’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds has all the shiny qualities of a piece penned yesterday.”
****The Telegraph

Friday 24 February at 7.30pm & Saturday 25 February at 2pm and 7.30pm.

After the interval comes a real monster: Beethoven's Op. 130 Quartet - one of his celebrated 'Late Quartets' - in six movements, ending with the optional, mighty Grosse Fuge.

Jane Eyre: An Autobiography
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
‘Truly extraordinary… one of the most exciting young performers on the British Stage’ (British Theatre Guide)

This fabulous show comes from the creators of: Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Female Gothic and Dalloway.

Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation.

Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Brontë’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones.

Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities.

Michael Finnissy’s new score responds to themes from Puccini. Although the focus is on the crisis between son and absent father, Butterfly is an inevitable presence in their struggle. This must-see show features live singing.

Thursday, 23rd March 2017 - Saturday, 25th March 2017
The Herbal Bed
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society present a show about the secret life of Shakespeare's daughter.

Based on actual events which occurred in Stratford-upon-Avon in the summer of 1613, Shakespeare’s eldest daughter Susanna was publicly accused of having a sexual liaison with Rafe Smith, a married family friend.

Despite a recanting by her accuser, Susanna sues him for slander in the court of Worcester Cathedral. Faced with political divisions within the church, the hearing in the bishop’s court becomes a risky gamble as three people’s private lives are held up to the glare of intense public scrutiny in this emotional thriller whose outcome is anything but certain.

Originally produced to great acclaim by the RSC, The Herbal Bed was a huge hit in the West End and on Broadway, with an Olivier Award nomination and writer Peter Whelan winning Playwright of the Year.

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

The Thing That Came From Over There!

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.

Being Brel
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A tribute to Jacques Brel - one of history's greatest lyricists and performers.

Presented by Nick O’Connor, Being Brel is a multi-layered production, which celebrates the life and chansons of Jacques Brel. 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.

A theatre piece not to be missed – whether you’re a Brel aficionado or discovering his work for the first time.

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