The Odd Couple – Backwell Playhouse 2019

Dear All, this is a short trailer for “The Odd Couple”, female version…originally performed by Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau. This is a great play in two acts and very funny.

Quick synopsis:
When fussy Florence (Jenny Schaefer) becomes suicidal over her impending divorce, she accepts an offer to move in with her best friend, messy Olive (Helen Coupe). Florence drives Olive crazy with her obsession over her soon-to-be ex. Olive tries to get Florence out of her recent separation by arranging a double date with two wacky Spanish neighbours…

You will have a great time…so far we have had great attendance…highly recommended by me…Ali

‘THE KEY MASTER’ a Junior AliCaT Production

“Oh no! Not another supply teacher!”  say the children.  But their lesson is far from boring, as their history teacher transforms into the quirky Keymaster and takes them on a colourful journey through time.  When they finally get the key to the future, they are alarmed.  They see for themselves that today is tomorrow’s history, and realise that things need to change!

TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE, JUST CLICK ON THE POSTER!

 

What’s on in June 2019

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School presents:
The Canterbury Tales
Thursday 30th May – Saturday 1st June 2019 – 7.30pm (Sat Mat 2.30pm)

A colourful cast of characters set off for Canterbury, competing to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry. Brimming with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully alive by students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
All of medieval life is here, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among others) all have their tales to tell.

The Canterbury Tales is a touchstone of English literature and has delighted readers for centuries.

Tickets are £15 (£10 Concessions), available from bristololdvic.org.uk/ or 0117 987 7877
