Following the success of (Almost) A Christmas Carol... Outdoor Theatre in Victoria Gardens

r Get you

M BOTTO ! outside

Written by Nick Wilkes Directed by Colin Smith Special Opening Event: Monday 21 June 7pm Friday 25 June 7pm Saturday 26 June 11am, 3pm & 7pm Sunday 27 June 11am, 2.30pm & 6.30pm Friday 2 July 7pm Saturday 3 July 11am, 3pm & 7pm Sunday 4 July 11am, 3pm & 7pm


Welcome A warm welcome to our first brochure in over a year! I’ve found it incredibly difficult to write this introduction after such a momentous year. Do I start with reflecting on the mind-meltingly tough year we have all just had? Do I look forward in hope to a return to live art and performance? Do I begin with the fact that since starting full time in March last year, I still feel like I have no idea what to expect from my role as Director here at The Roses, without the chance to really get to know you and The Roses' community? How on earth do I sum up what has happened and what is to come? One thing I am completely certain about is that The Roses team and I are delighted to be bringing you this brochure before reopening and welcoming you all back into the venue. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait! Like many businesses over the last year, The Roses has been through huge change and many challenges. At times it’s been extremely difficult. Last year we had to reduce our business model to survive and as a result said goodbye to some valued colleagues, we closed our much-loved youth theatre, and some of the team were directly impacted by Covid-19. However, like many of you, the pause that continuous lockdowns have provided has allowed us space to think deeply about who we are, what we do and how we do it. We’ve had time to fundraise and have been awarded over half a million pounds in grants. Alongside helping us survive the crisis this money has enabled us support local artists and creative practitioners, implement a new £5 cinema ticket scheme for 16-25 year olds, and work with 16-30 year olds to improve our programming and branding for young people with some big plans in the pipeline. We’ve also launched our first ever online programme, The Feel Good Festival, and staged a wonderful Christmas show, (Almost) A Christmas Carol.

Instagram: the.roses.theatre

Following the success of this show we are now working with the creative team to develop a series of shows, with an ambition to tour The Roses nationally and grow a new strand to our work. We are delighted we will be opening our live season with an outdoor (Almost) A Midsummer Night’s Dream on June 21st, a hilarious take on Shakespeare’s summer classic, and a perfect antidote to the last year. Thanks to our supporters and staff team we are coming out of this crisis more resilient than we have ever been. However, there will still be a bumpy road ahead. The crisis has left us needing to raise Contents £60,000 to support costs over the next year. To combat this we are launching a new fundraising campaign, Regrow The Roses. If you have the means to contribute you can find out more over the page. Obviously, all of the above really has one goal: to bring back the joy of live performance and creativity and the magic of cinema. We have a fantastic programme for you that runs all the way through to next year. We open our live programme with an eclectic outdoor season in partnership with Tewkesbury Abbey, including Oddsock’s version of A Comedy Of Errors. Other highlights include include John Lydon, a night with Britain’s notorious punk icon that promises to be the most intimate on his UK tour of larger venues, cutting edge African dance company, Tavaziva; and Blokes of a Feather, an entertaining evening with Maurice Gran and Laurence Marks, the writers of Birds of a Feather, and the former of which just happens to have written our 2021 Panto, King Arthur. Finally, a huge thank you to our donors and members. The financial contributions you made to The Roses over the last year have been fundamental to our survival. We wish you all health and happiness and look forward to seeing you all back at The Roses.

Appeal

Since March 2020, The Roses has been through many challenges and huge change. Closed for 75% of the time, we only made 2% of expected sales income and had to restructure our business in order to survive. Because of this our future is uncertain and we are asking, urgently, for your support.

Can you help The Roses recover and thrive? Over the last 45 years The Roses has been the centre of culture in Tewkesbury. We are the largest cultural organisation - and only theatre – in the borough, and one of the largest employers on the High Street. Run by 17 staff and over 100 volunteers, in normal times we welcome over 80,000 visitors per year and are a much-loved community centre that provides a space for people to find joy and creativity. Without us, thousands of people will be deprived of access to live theatre, live dance, live music, film and denied participation in projects for their cultural enrichment and wellbeing. Our staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes throughout the pandemic: over the last 12 months we’ve financially supported local artists and creative practitioners; we launched our Feel Good Festival, with over 300 people taking part in a series of free creative and wellbeing workshops that built new skills and connected the community during lockdown; and commissioned and staged a wonderful two-man Christmas show that we are hoping to turn into our first ever self-produced touring show. None of this would have happened without your generous support, and we are hugely grateful to all our donors.

Why we matter As well as the eclectic mix of theatre, music, dance, talks and a nationally renowned independent film programme you see on our stage, we are nationally recognised for our participatory work with our local community and young people with a focus on creative skills and wellbeing. We host weekly and monthly creative groups including a writers group and a choir; plus knitting and painters groups, all providing vital social and creative activities every month to over 200 older people. We've also worked with many other organisations over the years, specialising in projects that reach marginalised communities. This year we will launch a new participatory department and a new group for 8 – 25 year olds that will provide a range of opportunities to learn performance, theatre-making, film making, gaming and backstage skills, and provide Arts Awards. We also been selected by the British Film Institute as a member of the Young Audience Generator Scheme, and have been awarded a grant to work with 16-30 year olds to improve our programme, branding and venue to be more accessible and usable for young people.

Why we need your help Due to impact of Covid-19 and the unprecedented events of the last year, our future is uncertain. The Government’s recently published roadmap, outlining steps to emerge from lockdown, means that we will be able to reopen on 17 May. In addition, the roadmap sets out that social distancing measures will be in place until at least 21 June. However, the impact on these timings on theatre means that we have a limited programme in place until at least September. This means that, while we can hopefully reopen safely in mid-May, we will continue to operate with a reduced capacity and income for at least 4 months. Managing and maintaining our building throughout another 4 months of closure will further decimate our income, and will severely threaten our ability to launch our community programme, our work with young people and stage our fabulous pantomime.

How you can help In order to regrow, The Roses needs to raise an extra £60,000. By donating you will directly contribute to restarting our community and participatory work, like reestablishing our weekly sessions for older people crucial to preventing social isolation or helping young people, who have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, to build new creative skills. It will also help us stage our renowned pantomime that we were devastated to have to postpone from 2020. Whatever you can give, every penny will have a big impact and help our beloved theatre thrive. You can also help by sharing our campaign on social media with #RegrowTheRoses. Thank you for your support.

Film at The Roses Films are back from Thursday 27 May! At the time of going to press, we are eight weeks away from our planned cinema reopening night on Thursday 27 May and it is too early yet to confirm titles with distributors. In fact, it's very unlikely we'll be able to feature films in our brochures from now on for this very reason; the last minute nature of booking the best film titles available simply don't work with the timescale of producing a season brochure, where live events need to be featured many months in advance. So, where can you find out what films we're showing at The Roses?

» Online at www.rosestheatre.org/events (choose the film filter to see all titles) » Follow our Facebook page, where we post all events » Pick up a printed flyer from the theatre Here are a few of the titles we hope to be able to bring you from May onwards (subject to availability):

Emotional, funny and relaxed, An Interesting Evening with Steve Davis gives you a rare insight to how one of this country’s sporting superstars has stood the test of time to become a key member of the BBC’s snooker team.

Woman Like Me: The Little Mix Show

Peter Knight's Gigspanner Big Band

Cate Cody

The energetic show that follows in the footsteps of the awardwinning girl band, Little Mix.

As collaborations go, they don’t get more mouth-watering than this…

This iconic 5-star rated show has live vocals and is full of commercial pop video choreography. Suitable for kids, tweens, teens and adults alike, The Little Mix Show brings the full pop concert experience to you. There are lots of added extras including Dance Competitions, Free Giveaways and a Meet & Greet with the girls after the show! Dance & scream to a packed out playlist of songs that include Black Magic, Power, Break Up Song, Woman Like Me, Wings, Shoutout To My Ex and even a few covers from their time on The X-Factor.

BBC ‘Best Duo’ folk award winners Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin and Bellowhead co-founder John Spiers, join forces with legendary fiddle player Peter Knight’s highly acclaimed trio, Gigspanner to form the Gigspanner Big Band. Taking self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, they produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator”. “Put them all together and some alchemical magic occurs” Spiral Earth

“I’m old-fashioned...” sings Cate Cody in a hauntingly beautiful voice that has been compared to a young Peggy Lee. She might well be describing herself, because these days it’s very rare to find a jazz chanteuse with such authentic phrasing, who genuinely understands the nuances, and is capable of capturing the idiomatic gradations and modulations required to swing. Indeed, most of the songs she has chosen to put her stamp on belong to that great age of song sophistication, coming from the pen of the masters of the art. She does full justice and breathes new life into them. Accompanying Cate are Dave Newton (voted best Jazz Pianist thirteen times) and double bass player John Day (Acker Bilk, Chris Barber).

Down For The Count: Legends Of Swing Down for the Count are a mini big band with an electrifying show full of incredible energy and musicianship. Described as “a breath of fresh air on the swing scene” they are now regularly found at jazz clubs in the UK and abroad, at festivals and on BBC Radio.

Combine that with the band’s top class instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre, and you get a show that will leave you feeling uplifted and wanting more. “Awesome!!!” Michael Bublé

Jack Boskett: 10 Years Of Saying Cheese!

Blokes Of A Feather

Seann Walsh: Same Again?

Forty years ago, Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran gave up their day jobs to become full-time comedy writers: their 40-year mission, to make millions laugh. The following decades took them from Borehamwood to Pinewood via Hollywood. They created a hatful of hit TV shows, including The New Statesman, Goodnight Sweetheart and, of course, Birds of a Feather. Along the way they won two BAFTAs and an Emmy, and founded one of the most successful TV production companies of the 1990s.

Seann wanted to be a stand-up comedian from the age of 10. In this show, he tells us how he got here, from growing up in Brighton to gathering a slew of TV credits and glowing reviews, to becoming a tabloid villain. This fresh show mixes some of his best loved routines with new candid stories from the last ten years.

Jack celebrated his tenth year as a professional photographer in 2020 and returns to The Roses to celebrate and entertain a live audience with a brand new stand up photography show. Since Jack began his business at nineteen in the height of a national financial crisis, he has been on a fast paced journey which has taken him all over the country. Alongside his photography work, Jack has made several appearances on stage playing various roles in Shakespeare and pantomime productions; and on screen in short films and in BBC, ITV and Channel 5 Documentaries including, 24/7 Paddington Station and The Wonderful World of Chocolate. His photographs are widely sought after and regularly published in the national papers and magazines.

Blokes of a Feather will provide a highly entertaining evening of anecdotes, revelations, indiscretions, insights and lots of laughter, and plenty of classic video clips from their enormous back catalogue (Oooh, missus, as Frankie Howerd would have said).

Stand up comedy

Omid Djalili: The Good Times Tour After experimenting with a Zoom gig where he got muted by 639 people and a drive-in gig where Omid witnessed an audience member get out his car, attach a hose pipe to his exhaust and feed it through the window; the multi award-winning comedian and actor is now where he belongs, on a stage and bringing back the Good Times. Folk Music

Sarah McQuaid Her award-winning musicianship, distinctive chocolatey vocals and mastery of the songwriting craft have led reviewers to describe Sarah McQuaid as a “triple threat”. Add to that a warm, charismatic stage presence, five critically acclaimed solo albums and a battery of instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, drum and piano — and you’ve got a onewoman powerhouse who defies categorisation because there simply isn’t anyone else out there quite like her. Not to be missed!

Intelligent, always provocative, entertaining; Omid’s legendary stand-up performances are a captivating comedy masterclass. "So hysterically funny and at the same time so poignant and powerful that calling it stand-up barely does it justice.” Michael Levin, Huffington Post "A thin, high cheek-boned, flamboyant luvvie” The Guardian

“She reached parts other singers fail to do ... There is emotion, beauty, passion and musically great arrangements and fab playing. It’s a complete package. I loved the show and was very moved” Rob Bozas, Bozas International (Publisher, Peter Gabriel/Real World)
