Our 2017 production - West Side Story - took us back to 1950s New York and the harsh streets of the upper west side as the Jets and the Sharks, two rival gangs, battle for control of the turf. 6 action-packed performances were staged at the Grand Theatre, Lancaster from 2nd - 6th May 2017.

And now, for 2018, we move from the rival gangs of New York to conflicts on and off stage with Cole Porters' Kiss Me Kate based on William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. We'll be back on stage at the Grand Theatre, Lancaster from Tuesday 8th May - Saturday 12th May 2018.
