Thursday, 15 June: Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoes

Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes

Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale, The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart.

A beloved fairytale and Academy Award-winning movie, The Red Shoes has seduced audiences and inspired generations of dancers with its tale of obsession, possession and one girl’s dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion.

Tickets £30 (some steps) from Elizabeth House.  Depart 1.30pm for 2.30pm matinee at The Swan, Wycombe.

 

 


Thursday 3 August: Fiddler on the Roof at Chichester Festival Theatre

Join us on Thursday 3 August for a matinee performance of Fiddler on the Roof, featuring Omid Djalili and Tracey-Ann Oberman in Chichester. 

Ticket including transport to/from Elizabeth House £35 per person.  Coach departs at noon.


Thursday 14 September: A Little Night Music at Watermill Theatre

Join us for a matinee performance of A Little Night Music at The Watermill, Newbury on Thursday 14 September.

Oozing with sophistication and wit, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s A Little Night Music (based on Ingmar Bergman’s Smiles on a Summer Night) is a passionate story of intertwined love affairs, regret and longing centred on elegant actress Desirée Armfeldt, and her family and flirtations.  The show is full of laughter and loss and second chances. The Watermill’s unique, rural setting is a perfect place to tell this story which takes place over the course of a golden summer.

Ticket including transport to/from Elizabeth House £37 per person.  Coach departs at 1pm.


Thursday 8 February 2018: Twelfth Night at Stratford

Twelfth Night is a tale of unrequited love – hilarious and heartbreaking. Twins are separated in a shipwreck, and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land. The first twin, Viola, falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Viola but is idolised by Malvolio. Enter Sebastian, who is the spitting image of his twin sister…

Christopher Luscombe, Director of the ‘glorious’ (Daily Telegraph) Love’s Labour’s Lost and Much Ado About Nothing (2014 and 2016), returns to tackle Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, a brilliantly bittersweet account of “the whirligig of time”.

Cost £60 including lunch and travel to/from Elizabeth House.
