Friday 1st July at 7.30pm Scamp Theatre presents The Virginia Monologues: Why Growing Old is Great Written and performed by Virginia Ironside Directed by Nigel Planer “...a gentle, life-affirming ramble through the joys of being a sexagenarian – the bus passes, the bird watching, the glamorous dressing gowns.” - The Independent When an agony aunt reaches sixty, she can lie like a trooper, jump off a bridge – or take to the stage. Virginia Ironside explains that unlimited free drugs, fun funerals, grandchildren and sex – or, even better, no sex – make the sixties the best – and funniest - time of your life… The Virginia Monologues premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to great acclaim and played limited season of UK sold out gigs in 2010. "Virginia’s become, effectively, a stand-up comedian. Her show is really funny…. I urge you to see it.” - Arthur Smith ‘Loose Ends’ BBC Radio 4 “This doyenne of Fleet Street delivers her observations with precision, style and wit. Her writing is beautiful, funny, sensible and smart – and her show, directed by The Young Ones’ Nigel Planer, is an absolute delight.” - Scotsman Tickets £10, £8 (concessions) Saturday 2nd July at 3pm & 6pm TPA Presents Rock Toyz An All Electric, Rock'n'Roll Cinderella Rock Toyz is a fun, fantasy musical with attitude about what happens when the Toyz from the attic meet the Ratz from the cellar, with love, leather jackets and cartoon comedy thrown in!

Tickets: £4.50 (£3.50 concessions) Saturday 9th July at 2.30pm Stig of the Dump By Clive King Is Stig real or is he the product of Barney’s boyhood imagination? Lou sees Stig, and so do lots of other people, but does this mean they really go back in time to the building of the stone circles? This wonderful musical production of Clive King’s famous story, with lots of opportunity for the audience to take part, will be a truly magical experience. During the light hearted first act rehearsal some children are rehearsed into small parts in the show while the rest of the audience are taught the chorus songs. This is family theatre at its very best. Said by the author to be the best adaptation of his novel, this wonderful production will be another moving and stimulating experience of high quality musical theatre for both children and adults. Continues over page


Clive King's wonderful story of Barney and his Neolithic friend Stig has been a firm favourite with children and adults since it was first published in the early sixties. Barney and Stig's many adventures in and around the chalk pit, near his grandfather's house, culminate in a fascinating journey back in time to the days when there were only Stigs and stone circles. With beautiful costumes, an ingenious set and wonderful music from Robert Hyman, this production will continue Image Musical Theatre's tradition of providing the very best touring productions for theatres and primary schools.

Friday 22nd July at 7.30pm The Magnets "a cappella band The Magnets are complete pros...they're a band to watch in 2011" The Guardian They are the singing secret that the stars have kept to themselves, the vocal group with a word-of-mouth reputation for spicing up the parties of supermodels, heads of state and billionaires with their blend of glorious harmonies and jaw dropping beat-boxing. But now, after selling out London’s legendary Roundhouse, electrifying performances at the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury Festivals, and their current sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, The Magnets are emerging from the shadows as one of Britain’s hottest musical acts. Literally a ‘six-man sound machine’, The Magnets make all their music with their mouths alone, including the drums of vocal percussionist/beat-boxer Andy Frost and the richly textured bass of Fraser Collins. However, this is no attempt to mimic instruments, but rather the blending of six distinctive voices to create a unique sound that rivals any band with guitars and keyboards. At the heart of The Magnets music lies a gift for extraordinarily imaginative arrangements that radically restyle and subvert songs from artists as diverse as Kraftwerk and Beyoncé. Highlights include a sun soaked lounge version of Blur’s ‘Girls & Boys', a sultry 'Poker Face' by Lady Gaga (recently performed for Scott Mills on Radio 1), and their trademark mega-medleys, currently a show-stopping A-Z of movie themes from A-Team to Zulu. Now centre-stage in the current revival in vocal harmony music, seen everywhere from Glee to The Choir, The Magnets have risen from humble beginnings as street performers in London's Covent Garden. They have enjoyed a colourful subsequent history, including an EMI record deal, support tours with Tom Jones and Michael Ball, and continuous international touring from Singapore to the Cayman Islands. They have recently been seen and heard on ITV1’s Magic Numbers, BBC Breakfast, and BBC Radio 1 and 2. "a cappella singing straight from the Gods…The Magnets are the epitome of cool" Edinburgh Evening News Tickets £12.50

Saturday 3rd September at 7.30pm Trinity Arts Centre present Tickled Pink A night of the best female stand-ups aid of The Breast Cancer Campaign: Researching the cure.

She guarantees an audience with her biting deadpan observations' The New York Times Shazia is an award winning British Asian stand up Comedian and columnist from Birmingham sticking the figurative knife into political correctness with devastatingly funny effect. She performs all over the world and has toured the US, Sweden, Denmark, France Holland and Germany. Her vast array of TV credits includes CBS ‘60 Minutes’, NBC's ‘Last Comic Standing’, Paramount’s ‘The World Stands Up’ and BBC’s ‘Have I Got News for You’. Diane Spencer 'A rollickingly good slice of frank, un-gimmicky stand-up. She could be the female Jim Jefferies, with an honesty and humility that makes her abject embarrassment riotously hilarious' **** - chortle.co.uk Nominated for Best Female Comedian by the New Zealand Comedy Guild, Diane is a globetrotting gagster who is witty, wordy and intelligently armed with hilariously challenging stories. She performs with such an affable humility she might have you thinking of the girl next door, but swiftly turns heads as she explodes in a raucously rude and rib-tickling manner. Ruth E Cockburn 'She does something the best comedians do; finds material that the audience recognises from their own lives, and simultaneously makes them realise how foolish they are.”' – Underground A regular fixture at ‘Laughing Cows’ at Manchester’s legendary Frog & Bucket comedy venue and an established playwright with her work having being performed at numerous festivals from Edinburgh to Sydney; Ruth’s comedy is a perilously potent mix of spot-on, slightly surreal social commentary and brilliantly inventive, hummable and instantly hilarious songs. Compere - Kate Mulgrew 'An exuberant and affable personality with plenty of memorable jokes' - bbc.co.uk A resident compere at several comedy venues, Ms Mulgrew supported the Boy with Tape on His Face on UK theatre tour dates.

Tickets £4.50, £3.50 (concessions) Thursday 8th September at 8pm The Hoot Comedy Club Headline - Kevin Precious 'If he were any more laid back he'd fall over - we fell over laughing' - Evening Standard Compere – Elliot J Huntley Plus full supporting undercard Tickets £5.00 Thursday 8th - Saturday 10th September Heritage Weekend Take a journey through Trinity’s conversion from Church to Arts Centre with photographic memories, memorabilia and artefacts displayed throughout the venue, while photographer Nicholas Gray is our local artist exhibiting in our Art In The Bar Wallspace and compares today’s Gainsborough with bygone times.

Tuesday 13th – Saturday 17th September (Evenings at 7.30pm plus Saturday Matinee at 2.30pm) Gainsborough Amateur Operatic Society presents Blitz! Coming from Lionel Bart, the composer of 'Oliver!', you can be assured of a toe-tapping evening of memorable tunes, comedy and pathos in 'Blitz!' In 1940 the East End of London is taking a terrible pounding from Hitler's bombs. Life, however, goes on, centring around the matriarchal Mrs Blitztein and her large family - which includes her petty-criminal son Harry and her beautiful daughter Carol.

'Blitz!' features many hit songs, including "The Day after Tomorrow", "Who's This Geezer Hitler?", "Far Away", "Down the Lane" and "Duty Calls". The large cast includes a children's chorus which feature in “We’re going to the Country" and the show stopping "Mums and Dads". A Great British musical!

With an enchanting mesh of mime, masking, movement, and the music of voice, the two actors conjure storms and apparitions, lay bare treasons and counterplot, and finally transport you to a ‘brave new world’ of love and reconciliation. The two-man Tempest is an audacious and exhilarating adaptation of Shakespeare’s tumultuous farewell to the stage by Geoff Bullen with a specially commissioned score by the internationally renowned composer Tot Taylor, including contributions from Stacey Kent, Alan Barnes, and Simon Warner.

Tickets £10, £8 (concessions) Saturday 24th September at 12noon Films 4 Families: Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 (PG) Dir: David Bowers 99mins Zachery Gordon, Devon Bostock This bubbly sequel to the first Wimpy Kid movie is arguably even funnier as Greg and his older brother Rodrick try to deal with their parents nutty idea that the two kids must actually start to like each other.

The first: his dad is dying of cancer. Second: his dad’s really gay. Add a romantic entanglement in the son’s life as well and you have one of the most touching dramas of the year.
