Rowntree Players

4 March to 6 March 2010

The play is the story of Richard Branson, a redundant foundry worker whose wife has left him for another women.

In a desperate attempt to regain his self esteem, Richard applies to do a history course at University.

There he meets Noel, another mature age student with an entirely different outlook on life.

Together – well, together they learn more than either could have imagined possible. About life. About women. About themselves.

Half A Sixpence

Flying Ducks Youth Theatre

25 March to 27 March 2010

Flying Ducks prove time and time again that they enjoy a challenge and this year is no exception. This comical love story, made famous by the British musical film of 1967, starring Tommy Steele, has recently enjoyed a successful professional tour starring Gary Wilmot in the lead role of Arthur Kipps. It is really quite something that our very own Flying Ducks Youth Theatre will perform the first amateur production of this famous musical with Sam Whyte playing the lead at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre.

The story of orphan Arthur Kipps, who lives and works with other apprentices for the cruel draper, Mr. Shalford, is quite endearing. Kipps learns that he inherits a fortune and tries to join the upper classes, getting engaged to the wealthy Helen Walsingham. Soon, he realises that his true love is his childhood sweetheart, Ann, and that money really cannot buy love. Thank goodness the story has a happy ending!

Don't miss the Flying Ducks production of one of the world's best-loved hit musicals, featuring favourite songs such as Flash Bang Wallop, If the Rains Got to Fall and of course Half A Sixpence. It will be a show for all the family to enjoy.
