Welcome to CCADS

Welcome to CCADS Theatre.                                 

Well, what a truly ‘loverly’ week we had at the Kings Theatre with MY FAIR LADY. All four performances played to enraptured audiences and culminated in standing ovations ... and we are so grateful to all those who came to see us over the run. It was another very special and unforgettable show experience.

We are delighted to be able to confirm an array of exciting productions from CCADS Theatre over the next 15 months or so.

Next up, in December, our final offering of 2019 is a new production of John Steinbeck’s American classic OF MICE AND MEN that sees us return to the atmospheric surroundings of the Square Tower (3 - 7 December) with this timeless, beloved tale of a remarkable friendship; the Tower is also the venue for our (slightly delayed from the originally announced dates) area premiere of Oscar-winning Martin McDonagh’s blackly comic London & New York success, HANGMEN, which we will bring to you in March of next year.

Our musical productions for 2020 are the previously announced smash hits CHICAGO and JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, which will be joined by the area premiere of the musical based on the iconic 1970s film SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, telling the story of Brooklyn born Tony Manero to a score of Bee Gees hits.

The year will begin on Saturday 25 January with our sixth annual ‘Songs from the Shows’ concert at Hayling’s Station Theatre, CRAZY FOR MUSICALS, which will include, amidst the many showstoppers from musicals old and new of the stage and screen, a tribute to the master composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim, who celebrates his 90th birthday in 2020.

To further celebrate this milestone for a man whose work we have often presented, we are thrilled to announce the UK premiere of the only non-musical play which (with George Furth) Sondheim has ever written, GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER, a twisting, turning murder mystery which will be presented in association with Torchlight Theatre at the spookily appropriate Wymering Manor in an immersive rendering.

We look forward to a very busy, varied programme that takes us right up to the end of 2020 ... with an exciting 2021 already ‘under construction’!

We very much hope that you will continue to follow us in our quest to bring a host of exciting productions to the South as part of the thriving local theatre community that we are so proud to be part of.

Watch this space for dates, booking news and further details ... !

Thank you again for joining us at the Kings for a remarkable week with MY FAIR LADY ... and thank you sincerely for your support of CCADS Theatre.
