1966 – National Organisation for Women

Betty Friedan “Each suburban wife struggles with it alone.  As she made the beds, shopped for groceries, matched slipcover material, ate peanut butter sandwiches with her children, chauffeured Cub Scouts and Brownies, lay beside her husband at night, she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent question…’IS THIS ALL?”

‘Crystal Girls’ written by Cassie Brooks

It is a musical adventure that follows 3 rival school girls whose lives are turned upside down after discovering that they alone have the power to save everything we know and much more.

Meeting strange and mysterious characters along their way, they discover more about themselves than they anticipated in their desperate attempt to return to the life they knew before they were whisked away into something that resembled a dream.

With the clock ticking and with all at stake, can they see past their own lives to save the lives of everyone else and all that we know?

Please order your tickets by clicking on the poster or through our contacts page Just state which performance and  how many tickets you require and will we get back to you ASAP.  Many thanks for your support.

A Teens War by Cassie Brooks (2016)

AliCaT_seniors_A Teens War_2016Let us take you back to WW2 Britain, but this time, to tell the untold stories from the teens of the time.

We know about the soldiers, the evacuees and the women on the Homefront, but what of those teenagers?  Return with us to find out what they got up to and what hardships and troubles they faced.  Stories of loss, love and friendship, with great 1940’s music and songs.  A jitterbug and even some serenading.  Plot shocks and surprises, a good laugh and possibly a tear or two.  It’s worth a the trip, if you’re ready for the ride…

Aesops Musical Foibles (2015):

AliCaT Aesops Fables Poster 2015

The audience will be highly entertained by the menagerie of voices in poor Aesop’s head.  The resentful Fox, the egomaniac Hare, the sluggish Tortoise, the zen-like Grasshopper and the Aunt and more come to life as hysterical characters onstage that only Aesop and your audience can see and hear.  With his mind crowded with all these big personalities, Aesop can hardly think straight.  The only way to peace of mind and freedom is to let out the characters and share them with the world.

A Senior Production July 2014

Midsummer Night’s Dream (2014):

AliCaT Midsummer Nights Dream Poster 2014“A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” William Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, was written around 1594 or 95. It portrays the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who’s transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves.  It’s about the world’s most popular pastime, falling in love. But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all.

Through the Looking Glass (2013):

Rock Toyz (2011):

AliCaT Rock Toyz Poster 2011In the big house at the top of the hill there’s something very strange going on. It’s way past bed time and a little girls toys have come to life, complete with their own rock’n’roll soundtrack! – Reality has ceased, the Party has begun!

All is,”Tip o’ the Mark” and “Hip to that Chart” until a new Toy arrives, then the action starts.

– Oh, and do remember – “Happy ever after is a State of Mind”!!

Rock Toyz blends the traditional story of Cinderella with the vibrant dance and energetic music of contemporary stage classics like Grease. It’s a fun, fantasy tale with attitude about what happens when the Toyz from the attic meet the Ratz from the cellar, with love, leather jackets, cartoon comedy, and 150 metres of ribbon thrown in! What more can we say? Continue reading
