SING-A-LONG-A
GREASE

The brand new sing along screening of the classic film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John brought to you by the producers of Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music.

Ever wanted to know what it's like to be a T-bird or a Pink Lady but never quite felt cool enough to pull it off?  Well, now is your chance to don those pink jackets, grease up those quiffs and let your inhibitions go for an evening where you are the stars and remember GREASE is the word...

The evening begins with your host leading a vocal warm-up before they show you how to use your fun pack. You'll even get a chance to learn how to hand jive.

Then just sit back and watch Danny & Sandy and the gang, while singing and dancing along to the lyrics as shown on the screen.

It couldn’t be easier... or more fun! Fancy dress is strongly encouraged and full audience participation essential.

THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED
 

In January 1959 Buddy Holly began a tour of Americas mid-west and due to an untimely airplane accident on the 3rd February, Buddy was lost to us forever. That day would eventually become known as 'The Day The Music Died'.

55 years on, we present a celebration of Buddy’s music. From the early songs such as 'Blue Days, Black Nights' and 'Rock around with Ollie Vee' to 'True love Ways’, and 'It Doesn’t Matter Anymore'.

This show proves that the music did not indeed die but lives on and is as vibrant and relevant as ever.

PRESTON COLLEGE PRESENT
JEKYLL & HYDE

A true musical theatre phenomenon, JEKYLL & HYDE attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run. Now, Preston’s College Performing Arts are bringing the grisly gothic musical to the Charter Theatre stage for a limited run. 

An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, JEKYLL & HYDE is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from his good, Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde. 

This gripping tale and the stunning performances from the Preston’s College performers will have you captivated and with a rock-based musical score, you’re sure to be gripped right to the end.
