A Jolly Sinister Jape (by Elliot Strange)
A pastiche 1920’s thriller with a plot that defies description. This is Famous Five fun for adults as Stubby, Ophelia, Biffy and Fatty find themselves trapped in a mysterious house during a thunderstorm. Is this someone’s idea of a jape? Or is something far more sinister going on? All is revealed in this madcap comedy set in the Roaring Twenties. It’s fast and furious with a liberal sprinkling of hilarious period slang, along with mystery and thrills.
(Running time approx 30 minutes)
Membership of the local amateur dramatic society has dwindled to four and the audiences aren’t much bigger. If they don’t come up with some rent money soon, they’re going to be thrown out. Time for dramatic action. “There’s only one thing that sells tickets these days” argues Georgie the Chairwoman. “Sex!” But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this hilarious play and thus begins the chaotic build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama – an evening the locals would never forget!
(Running time approx 30 minutes)
Sequel to Last Tango in Little Grimley, Last Panto in Little Grimley features the same incompetent characters. The society members tackle the Christmas Pantomime with predictable riotous results. It’s Dick Whittington…but not as you know it!
(Running time approx 45 minutes)
Friday 28th July – 7:30pm
LAUREL and HARDY in YORKSHIRE
Just how this legendary screen double-act came to appear ‘live on stage’ at theatres in Yorkshire is engagingly told by “A.J” Marriot – author of “LAUREL & HARDY – The British Tours” (recently made as a film).
Stan and Ollie played Leeds, Sheffield, Bradford, and York — equally thrilling and bemusing audiences with their presence. The story is richly illustrated with scores of rare photos and actual news footage of Laurel and Hardy in Britain.

Tickets: £10 – Admission includes a voucher for £5 off any of “A.J” Marriot’s book titles
We are so excited to welcome Official Number One Bestselling Soprano, Joanna Forest, to The Little Theatre. Joanna, who has performed to millions on the BBC, ITV, Sky and Classic FM at events such as The Royal Variety Performance, is taking her album on a tour of LTG theatres this Autumn.
Described as one of the most exciting and important Sopranos performing today, she made chart history earlier this year when her debut album, Stars Are Rising, entered the Official Classical Charts at Number 1, knocking Alfie Boe off the top, making her the first independent artist to get to number one with a debut. Produced and orchestrated by world renowned pianist, Robert Emery, it was applauded by the National Press, Radio and TV for its eclectic mix of dramatic arias, cinematic classics and crossover versions of popular gems such as Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars’ and Slade’s ‘How Does It Feel?’.
Joanna, who made her West End Debut at just 13, will be performing the album and many other popular classical and musical hits in an evening not to be missed accompanied by a local choir and some surprise familiar faces!
Saturday 2nd September – 7:45pm
SCAR Productions Presents:
‘September in the rain’ is a gentle lyrical comedy, with what a first glance appears to be an innocent and rather sentimental story: a couple, Jack & Liz look back on there holiday times together in Blackpool. But peel back in the surface and we realise this is a play fuelled by the mining industry and the effect it had on individuals. September holiday week was known as Leger Week in Doncaster and most miners had that week for their holiday. It was ironic that miners trapped underground during their work time ended up having a week’s holiday where it rained upon them for the duration.
Join Jack & Liz in Blackpool on the beach ad up the Tower or on Pleasure Beach for a riotous ride!
