11/05/2017 to 01/07/2017 DON'T DRESS FOR DINNER
 THE MILL AT SONNING

With his wife out of town, an alibi from his best friend Robert, and Suzette, a Cordon Bleu cook, lined up to prepare gourmet delights, Bernard thinks he’s planned the perfect romantic weekend for his glamorous French mistress, Suzanne. But when Bernard’s wife, Jacqueline, hears the news that her secret lover Robert – ooh, la, la – is visiting for the weekend, she decides to stick around for a surprise tryst of her own. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard improvises at breakneck speed! Suzanne becomes the cook, Suzette becomes the lover, the wife becomes increasingly suspicious and the friend is completely bewildered.

25/05/2017 to 01/07/2017 HOUSE AND GARDEN - BY ALAN AYCKBOURN
 THE WATERMILL - WEST BERKSHIRE PLAYHOUSE, NEWBURY

In the unique setting of The Watermill, Alan Ayckbourn’s pair of linked comedies will be performed simultaneously by the same cast between the theatre and a marquee in its beautiful gardens. With hilarious consequences, one character’s entrance to House is another’s exit from Garden in this fast-paced duo of plays! At the Platt country manor, whilst womanising landowner Teddy Platt eagerly awaits the arrival of an old friend in the house, in the garden, preparations for the annual village fete are well underway. Amidst the manicured setting, gossip, affairs and petty feuds run rife and with a host of colourful characters and troubled couples mingling throughout the day, tensions run higher still into the night. This will be the first time that Ayckbourn’s play has been performed both inside and out, promising to be a very special production that will be epic and intimate in equal measure.

07/06/2017 to 25/06/2017 WARGRAVE FESTIVAL

You will find something for everyone of any age to make the partying truly all inclusive. The committee is enthusiastic and they, as well as the contributing village organisations, have been working very hard to make this one a corker. The Festival, which was inspired by the Vicar, the late Revd John Ratings, was first held in the summer of 1975 and has been held every other year since. From relatively modest beginnings, it has become the most wide ranging Wargrave social drawing together the whole village community in two weeks of non stop activities, to which almost all organisations play their parts. It makes an invaluable contribution to the cementing of Wargrave’s esprit de corps.

11/06/2017 to 03/08/2017 TWELFTH NIGHT - WATERMILL THEATRE ON TOUR PRODUCTION
 THE WATERMILL - WEST BERKSHIRE PLAYHOUSE, NEWBURY

The Watermill has become known around the world for its bold, ensemble driven approach to presenting Shakespeare. For our anniversary year we celebrate this rich history by presenting a brand new production of a play that balances comedy, romance and tragedy in equal measure. Bohemian, outlandish, isolated: Illyria is a land where everyone has lost something and they will use any means to survive. Viola is washed ashore. Compelled to survive in a mysterious ethereal land, she disguises herself as Cesario to serve the solitary Duke Orsino. What follows is a tale of mistaken identities, seduction and transformation, leading to a complex love triangle and the potential destruction of all propriety. This production is reimagined in the 1920s where prohibition is rife and Europe is still reeling in the wake of war.

13/06/2017 to 09/07/2017 ANOTHER MOTHER'S SON
 THEATRE ROYAL, WINDSOR

Jersey, 1942. As Hitler strengthens his grip on Western Europe, The Channel Islands fall into occupied hands. Used by the Germans as a base where prisoners of war are put to work in slave labour camps, the residents of Jersey face a future of uncertainty and fear which frays tempers and tests loyalties among the tight-knit island community. One such resident is Louisa Gould (Jenny Seagrove), who refuses to give up hope for the island she holds so dear, for her sons fighting abroad and for a rescue by Churchill’s forces that never seems to materialise.

20/06/2017 to 08/07/2017 WINDSOR REPERTORY FESTIVAL
 THEATRE ROYAL, WINDSOR

Our Windsor Repertory Festival celebrates a model of theatre making that has recently been debated in the press and online, as actors and directors discuss the value of “Rep” in nurturing tomorrow’s stars. Over 3 weeks a team of professional actors and creatives will prepare a repertoire of plays which will be rehearsed during the day ready to open the following week, while that week’s play is performed each evening. This intense way of working is an incredible challenge for the company - and part of the reason we have a generation of actors in the UK with such a wide range of skills. It’s also a joy for audiences - you have the opportunity to enjoy top quality theatre made locally and get to know a company of actors over many different plays. John Counsell created the Windsor Repertory Company here in 1938. In 1988 it enjoyed its 50th birthday - in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother - and we’re delighted to continue that legacy with a season of wonderful plays and a company of the bravest, and brightest, stars of tomorrow!

Will Tony be able to live with himself or will the Scotland Yard Inspector trap him into revealing his guilt? Frederick Knott’s intense and claustrophobic thriller was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954 starring Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings and John Williams. The film was remade in 1998, with the title A Perfect Murder, starring Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow.

24/06/2017 SUMMER MUSIC AT DOUAI ABBEY - BASINGSTOKE CHORAL SOCIETY

Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle was the last major work he wrote. Often criticised as being neither little nor particularly solemn, it is a work of great beauty and while it is based on the serious text of the Mass, it retains Rossini’s inimitable style. Basingstoke Choral Society is delighted to be joined by four amazing soloists and the whole work will be accompanied by piano as well as organ. This is an event not to be missed with strawberries and wine served from 6pm, before this stunning work is performed in the beautiful setting of Douai Abbey.

24/06/2017 BASINGSTOKE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
 ANVIL ARTS, BASINGSTOKE

After the sudden death of Borodin, Prince Igor was completed by Rimsky-Korsakov and his pupil, Glazunov. The Overture is almost entirely Glazunov's work and contains some brilliant orchestration. Based on Scottish folk melodies, Bruch's nostalgic Scottish Fantasy was described by Bernard Shaw as ‘better than his concertos’! The Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis is considered by many to be Vaughan Williams’ finest orchestral work. Gluck’s ethereal and haunting Dance of the Blessed Spirits takes us to the warm climes of Greece and its mythology. Telling the tale of Princess Aurora, Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Suite is a perennial favourite.

Starting as early as five years old, she would join them for a song or two. Two decades later, she's still spending her time onstage — this time as the main act. Erin released her full-length debut, Soon Enough, independently in the US in 2015, receiving glowing support from long-time tastemakers at NPR music, Rolling Stone, The Fader, and more.
