Welcome to The Crescent Theatre

Coming up at The Crescent

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little StarsTwinkle, Twinkle, Little Stars   18 - 21 Apr
(Stage2)

Following the huge sell-out success of 'A Wayne in a Manger' in January 2017, Stage2 return to the works of the Sunday Times Best-Selling Author for a much requested sequel. This time we see the children presenting not Nativity Scenes but a Talent Show for the hallowed School Inspector, as they perform poems (also courtesy of Gervase) with varying degrees of aplomb and ambition, style and success. The poems are again interspersed with classroom and whole school scenes, allowing us to delve deeper into the lives of these little darlings - including old favourites Dominic and Chardonnay - as well as the Vicar, the Headteacher and another hapless Visiting Poet.
Suitable for anyone who is or has ever been a child.

Elle sets out to prove herself to the world.

The Thrill Of LoveThe Thrill Of Love   28 Apr - 5 May
(The Crescent Theatre Company)

Confessing to the crime, yet refusing to offer defence or mitigation, Ruth Ellis was convicted of the murder of her lover and became the last woman to be hanged in Britain.

In this heart-wrenching play, Amanda Whittington looks at Ellis’ life through the eyes of three women - friends and colleagues in the seedy world of London night-clubs – as she pursues a fatally destructive relationship.
