knutsford Little Theatre
The Cat and the Canary - Adapted by David Muncaster

Directed by Miles Buckley.

The Cat and the Canary was written by John Willard and first performed in New York in 1922.  There are at least three film versions of the story; a very influential silent film released in 1927 with others staring Bob Hope(1939), Edward Fox & Honor Blackman(1978). This latest adaptation sees the newly formed Knutsford Little Broadcasting Company present the play (their first - but it doesn't show really!) as a 1950's live-radio-broadcast complete with sound effects, performed in view of the studio audience.
The twist is that the cast have a few problems with members not turning up so must improvise as best they can.
Whilst this is very funny at times, it does not take away from the original story which should have the audience intrigued from start to finish.

Jack and the Beanstalk - by Peter Denyer

Directed by Ben Evans-Clarke and Sean Duvall.

Jack and the Beanstalk is an action-packed pantomime with the most heroic hero of them all, Jack, who fights and defeats the huge Giant Blunderbore – and wins the hand and heart of the beautiful Jill.
This is an old fashioned British pantomime, set in an idyllic county setting.
“Jack” is a classic triumph of good over evil, resulting in the sealing of Jack and Jill's romantic ambitions.

Ladies Down Under - by Amanda Whittington

Directed by Tina Buckley and Barry Wilkinson

In the sequel to Amanda Whittington’s Ladies' Day we follow the further exploits of our four favourite fish packers from Hull.  Having won a fortune at the races the ladies are celebrating in style with the trip of a lifetime to the land of Oz.  Inevitably things don't go quite to plan 'Down Under' and we see neurotic Jan valiantly trying to face her fears, narcissistic, wannabe model Shelley clinging (with perfectly manicured nails) on to her dreams and luxury lifestyle whilst naive, but generous-hearted, Linda is striving to share her wealth.  It is however Pearl, the stalwart matriarch of the group, who has the biggest mountain to climb and is most deserving of her friends' support.  During their Antipodean antics, the ladies encounter not only iconic Australian locations, but also diverse, entertaining, and in some cases inspiring, members of the opposite sex.
Be sure to grab your passport, book your tickets and come Waltzing Matilda with us.

A Bunch of Amateurs - by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman
Directed by David Muncaster

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village.
Instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians.  As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!
