Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, 9th to 13th July
Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours, this magical musical is full of unforgettable songs including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door to Me and One More Angel.
The Mousetrap, 8th to 12th August
The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed. In her own inimitable style, Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner.
Review of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
8th December 2009 to 2nd January 2010.
Oxford Daily Info has a review here: "a great night out for all of the family, providing humour for the grown-up audience members as well as for the slightly younger, more excitable ones... before whisking the kids off to the traditional panto, be sure to consider this timeless classic instead".
