Theatre Club

For a one-off payment of £5, members can join our Theatre Club.  Ros Joynes organises theatre trips to matinee performances throughout the year, with coaches leaving and returning from Elizabeth House. Members must however organise their own transport home from Elizabeth House.

Please call 01628 527621, email theatre@elizabethhousecookham.org or visit Elizabeth House (Monday to Friday 9am-3pm) for more information. Due to the limited number of places, a place can only be reserved when signed by the member against the interest sheet and on receipt of a non-returnable deposit of £10. 

Please note all participants attend at their own risk and must be mobile without assistance. Whilst we do our best to minimise risk with easily accessible theatres and coaches, members are responsible for themselves. 

Here are the upcoming shows:

Wednesday 24 July: Oklahoma at Chichester

With its glorious score and spirit of exuberant optimism, Oklahoma! is the American musical by which all others are judged. Rodgers and Hammerstein broke new ground in perfectly integrating music and dance to tell a story whose darker undercurrents never overwhelm its rapturous vitality. Among the unforgettable songs are Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’, The Surrey With The Fringe On Top and the show-stopper Oklahoma.
