8th – 14th October 2017 – THE HIRED MAN by Melvyn Bragg & Howard Goodall

The story of one family’s journey from land labourers to colliers and back to the land. Set in Cumbria, this musical brings alive that cavalcade of history which swept Britain into a new century and a war to end all wars. Goodall’s score is strong in the British choral tradition – a succession of choir songs, operatic duets and energetic rhythms.
Directed by Lee Winston with Musical Direction by Emma Conway.
Tickets on sale from 26th August

9th, 11th – 16th December 2017 – CINDERELLA by Johnathan Freeth

The classic pantomime about Cinderella and her sisters.
Directed for Moulton Players by Angela Dickson.
Tickets on sale from 28th October

5th – 10th March 2018 – SHADOWLANDS by William Nicholson

Synopsis

Two people cross a generational, cultural and nationality gap to meet, fall in love and marry against all the odds. The film version of Shadowlands has been called a three-hankie love story; but it is also a true story. In its sadness and pain, there is optimism as two writers, C S Lewis and Joy Gresham collide intellectually and emotionally and often with great humour to move from common sense and a marriage of convenience to true love, with all the joy and pain that brings. There is an unsentimental exploration of both these prongs of life, often with poignant depth. Always in the background though is Lewis’s Narnia and ‘that’ wardrobe. The fantasy of the first in Lewis’s book series, ‘The Magician’s Nephew’, holds a symbol of his mother’s death and for Joy’s son Douglas – a hope of saving his mother’s life.

SATURDAY COFFEE MORNINGS 10am–12 Noon

Our regular Saturday morning coffee experience at the theatre is an opportunity to chat to fellow members; find out what’s going on in the theatre, and also what other theatre groups are up to, as well of course as obtaining tickets.
This is an invitation to all members, especially our younger members to visit the theatre on Saturday morning, and enjoy the benefits of being part of Moulton Theatre. There is so much more to enjoy as a member, and seeing our younger members there would be a real bonus, and with coffee and tea prices at 70p for a cup and £1 for a mug (plus free biscuits) it’s certainly cheaper than Costa or Starbucks!!

FINAL FRIDAYS
For members and their friends there is a programme of ‘Final Friday’ events to enhance your theatre experience and membership.
As the name implies, these events run on the last Friday in each month.
