    Portfolio 13/07/22 - 14/07/22 2 comments

    CCADS Theatre revive their award-winning 2017 production of this magical, truly heart-warming sequel to the mighty ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo, one of the world’s most successful and well-loved authors.

    Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpa’s eye. This beloved horse was sent to be a War Horse in World War One – and Grandpa had joined the cavalry to find and fight with him.

    FARM BOY brings us forward fifty years with Grandpa telling his grandson not only the story of Joey but a closely guarded secret which he has kept for many years …

    Set in Devon and joyously, through laughter and tears, celebrating the bond between the generations, FARM BOY is a delightfully entertaining play suitable for all ages … adults and children alike.

    Come and join us in the perfect, balmy setting of The Half Moon gardens in Sheet as part of their Summer Music Festival supporting Home-Start Butser.

    Taken from the great Arthurian legends and based on TH White’s ‘The Once and Future King’, Camelot is the musical masterpiece from Lerner & Loewe (My Fair Lady) which triumphed on Broadway in a legendary original production that lead to a film version, and numerous revivals in New York, London and across the globe.

    Its original Broadway cast album topped the charts for 60 weeks, with a rich score boasting such gems as ‘If Ever I Would Leave You’, ‘How to Handle a Woman’ and, of course, ‘Camelot’.

    The idealistic King Arthur hopes to create a kingdom built on honour and dignity, embodied by his Knights of The Round Table. His ideals, however, are tested when his lovely queen, Guenevere, falls in love with the young Knight, Lancelot, and the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance ...

    CCADS Theatre return to the Station Theatre for the first time since 2020’s sell-out run of Chicago with the regional premiere of this brand new version of a timeless classic. You are
    guaranteed a passionate, gripping and compelling new production that brings you closer to this powerful story and its remarkable score than ever before ...

    CALENDAR GIRLS: THE MUSICAL
    Jan 2023

    Portfolio 24/01/23 - 28/01/23 2 comments

    Book by Tim Firth; Music and Lyrics by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth

    Poignant and funny in equal measure, CCADS Theatre return to this inspirational story in its musical form ten years after being one of the first companies to perform the play.

    The death of a much loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a women’s institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.

    The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record breaking movie, stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term “craughing” - the act of crying and laughing at the same time.

    With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
