Independent Observer Evening Standard Edinburgh Evening News Metro Financial Times The Arts Desk Yorkshire Post Manchester Evening News The Herald, Scotland

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century. Retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production. Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female

corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Collecting over thirty international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.

From the original screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

Based on the best-selling novel that inspired the hit film, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin is an unforgettable love story set on the Greek island of Cephallonia against the turbulent backdrop of World War II. Iannis loves the island and his strong-willed daughter Pelagia. Carlo, an Italian soldier, discovers love whilst fighting in Albania. Pelagia loves her father and the fisherman Mandras. The young Italian Captain Corelli loves only his music. And then in 1941, the

idyllic island awakes to find itself at war, under Italian and German occupation. Everything they thought they knew and understood changes. Marking the 25th Anniversary of the novel’s original publication, Olivier and Tony Award nominee director Melly Still (My Brilliant Friend) and adaptor Rona Munro (The James Plays) bring this epic story vividly to life on stage with this world premiere.

Monty Python’s SPAMALOT” is presented through special arrangement with and all authorised performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW), 122-124 Regent Street, 3rd floor, London W1B 5SA. www.theatricalrights.co.uk. This is an amateur production.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. In a magical land filled with song, show girls, killer rabbits, farting French men, cows and oddly, grails, Arthur and his servant Patsy

embark upon a quest that shreds Hollywood conventions about mythic heroes, chivalry, damsels in distress and shrubberies. An amateur production from Newcastle Musical Theatre Company. SPAM® is a registered trademark of Hormel Foods LLC.
