An Important Announcement...

16th March 2020, updated 3rd April.

In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and the latest anouncements from Government it is with regret that we have taken the decision to postpone our upcoming production of Hairspray originally scheduled for May.

With just 7 weeks until the original opening night, rehearsals were in full flow, we have had to postpone our production. However we have now scheduled new dates for 22nd to 26th September 2020.

All bookings have been transferred to the new dates. If you booked tickets via a LADOS member and are unable to attend on the new dates, or would like to make any chances, then please contact the LADOS member. For bookings made direct with the Grand Theatre box office, online or via phone, they will be in contact to confirm or refund as you require.

We look forward to hopefully seeing you all at the Grand in September! Coronavirus will NOT Stop The Beat!

In the meantime please take care of yourselves and those around you.

Directing this production will be Laura Saltariche who has been teaching Drama and English for the past 14 years and we welcome her on board this year. Holly Brown will reprise the role of Tracy Turnblad, having previously performed the role in our 2015 production. Holly will also Choreograph. Our Musical Director, Anna Eddowes-Scott, completes our production trio!

Roger first appeared on the LADOS stage as Diesel in our 1987 production of West Side Story, directing Chess in 2004 and appearing in every production up to his final curtain call in Hot Mikado in 2006.

Arguably his most notable role was that of Jesus of Nazareth in our 1996 production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Lancaster Grand which he reprised for our 2002 production at the Lancaster Priory.

After 20 show-stopping years with LADOS Roger sadly died in 2007 from Melanoma.
