MAKE IT A

MEMBER-ABLE YEAR If you’re in need of a laugh comedian Mark Watson is touring his funniest show yet and we’re really looking forward to Dirty Dusting; a feel good comedy about three ‘mature’ cleaning ladies who start up their own sex chat line. To mark the centenary of World War I, we are presenting two very poignant pieces of theatre in our Studio; Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful and A November Day, created by Thingumajig Theatre Company in association with the Imperial War Museum North. We will remember them. For this year’s International Air Display we will be swinging with Chris Dean’s Syd Lawrence Orchestra and, later in September, Toploader will play here live. Also this season, we welcome back Albert Lee, Hats Off to Led Zeppelin, Talon: The Best of Eagles, and UK Pink Floyd Experience with their bigger show, The Pulse Tour, complete with backing vocals, saxophones and a fantastic light show. We have something for all the family with Sing-a-Long-a Frozen; the interactive version of the Disney animation film, plus we bring you the classic Rudyard Kipling tale, The Jungle Book. 2

www.jerseyoperahouse.co.uk

Our increasingly popular screenings this season include Stephen Fry: More Fool Me, Monty Python Live (mostly), Treasure Island, and classic operas; Madama Butterfly, Carmen and Le Nozze di Figaro.

INTRODUCING

OUR KOMODO DRAGONS Following the success of our children’s drama classes The Dragons (for 5-7 year olds) and The Chameleons (for 8-10 year olds), we have launched a brand new class for 11 to 13 year olds called The Komodo Dragons. We still have some places available for the autumn term, but you need to get in quick for the Dragons and Chameleons as they are already full. For more details contact admin@jerseyoperahouse.co.uk
