THE SOUND OF MUSIC

Award winning Nogal Productions are presenting 'The Sound of Music'. This new production of the famous musical is sure to be a family favourite.
It is 50 years ago that the story was first brought to the stage and then transformed into the most popular musical film of all time.  The story is timeless.  Young naïve novice nun Maria finds herself thrown in the middle of a family of seven children ruled with a rod of iron by their widowed father.
How she transforms their lives and the lives of all those around her is a true family favourite.  With lots of wonderful songs like ‘Edleweiss’, ‘Climb Every Mountain’, ‘The Lonely Goatherd’ and many more this show is sure to have you singing along and shedding the occasional tear at the more sentimental moments.
Nogal Productions presented ‘Oliver’ at the Charter last year which was an outstanding success.
‘The Sound of Music’ stars local actress Vicki Gallagher as Maria and local radio presenter Tim Walford as Captain Von Trapp.  Mother Abbess is played by the wonderful Una Bird and with two fabulous teams as the Von Trapp children this show is one not to miss.

THE BOHEMIANS

A Concert Celebrating Queen’s Finest Live Performances, from 1974 to Magic ‘86

Internationally renowned Queen Tribute band The Bohemians take you back to the early 1970’s. . Remember when Bohemian Rhapsody was number one in the charts, (the first time round) and Queen played the Legendary Hammersmith Odeon show as shown on the BBC Whistle Test program? Remember the long hair, the big winged shirts, even the harlequin leotards of ’77?! Yes? The Bohemians take you back to the decade that taste forgot.

Move on to 1979, ‘The Crazy Tour’, deemed to be one of Queen’s most exhilarating performances within the Queen fraternity, Queen certainly hit the peek of their live performances on this highly regarded tour. The red, skin tight, PVC trousers, Fat Bottom Girls, Don’t Stop Me Now, ‘The Pizza Oven’ lighting Rig and a crazy live performance to take you to the end of an exhilarating first half of the show.

The second half celebrates Queen’s most successful and famous tour - ‘The Magic Tour’. How can anyone forget the classic yellow jacket and the massive hits such as, A Kind of Magic, I Want to Break Free and One Vision. The Bohemians then celebrate Queen’s triumphant ‘Live Aid’ performance in 1985, universally regarded as one of Queen’s finest hours.

The Bohemians re-create the show we all wanted to see (and some were lucky enough to get tickets) in ‘86, ending in grand style and pomp as you would expect from any of Queen’s magnificent live performances.

His renditions of Thriller, Beat it and Billie Jean are truly sensational.
