Monty Python Live (Mostly)
Live on The Big Screen

Sun 20 July & Sat 2 August, 7.00pm
For the first time in more than three decades, comedy legends Monty Python will perform live on stage together this year. Broadcast from London’s O2 Arena, Monty Python Live (mostly) will play in venues around the globe.

At a combined age of just 358, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again perform some of their greatest hits, with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.

Monty Python are rightfully regarded as among the world’s finest-ever comedians. They influenced a generation and revolutionised comedy. Their eagerly awaited reunion promises to be among the biggest live events of 2014.

£15 (£13 conc), £10 Gala Friends


  Hat Fitz & Cara

Saturday 26 July, 7.30pm
Aussie bluesman Hat Fitz and Irish-born folk and soul singer Cara Robinson are a striking pair. A veteran wild-man of the blues scene in Australia, he is a giant raggedy-bearded man, who lives deep in the woods and eats anything that moves. She is a petite blonde, who barely reaches his shoulders. He has a deep, gruff Howlin' Wolf-esque voice while her vocals dance with the angels. Together they produce a shabby hill-country blues that oozes cool.

“contemporary but at the same time as old as the hills” American Roots

£12 (£10 conc)

A Chorus Line

Tuesday 5 - Saturday 9 Aug, 7.30pm (+ Sat 2.30pm)
It’s the chance of a lifetime for a group of performers auditioning for a new Broadway show. Set on a theatre stage, this wonderful musical provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers as they describe the events that have shaped their lives. All from different backgrounds, with varying abilities, they each reveal their most personal stories in interviews with the director.

With brilliant songs, great drama and stunning choreography A Chorus Line became the longest running musical in New York theatre history. Following its recent Broadway and West End revival, the talented performers from Gala Theatre Stage School, who recently staged the smash hit Grease and the spectacular Miss Saigon, take on this musical masterpiece.

Music by Marvin Hamlisch; lyrics by Edward Kleban; book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante.

£16.50 (£14.50 conc); £14.50 Groups 10+, £14.50 (£12.50 conc) First Night
