A comic investigation into an 80s childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems.

“It’s 1986. I am eight years old.

Prince Andrew and Fergie get married in the summer. Dirty Den serves Angie divorce papers on Christmas Day. And I’m sharing my bedroom with a KitKat-pinching ghost.”

Inspired by his favourite film, little Gareth became a self-appointed Ghostbuster, launching an investigation into a playful poltergeist. Now, three decades later, with the help of home videos, retro toys and interviews with his nearest and dearest, grown-up Gareth is determined to uncover what was really going on inside his very own haunted house.

Join us for a nostalgic trip back to the 80s and a comic exploration of a childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems — all wrapped up in some formidable fashions, stuffed with sweet treats and set to a cheese-tastic chart-topping soundtrack.

Glorilla

Sunday 5th November 2017, show starts at 7:30 pm
£9 in advance; £8 concessions or £11 on the door.

Acclaimed French Actress and International Animal Communicator Gloria Delaneuf returns to the UK to share her life-changing experience with the gorillas of the Kungalunga Jungle.

Assisted by her UK tour manager Josephine Cunningham, she is determined to show that man and gorilla can live “sans frontieres”. Following on from the award-winning Gloriator, Glorilla is the hilarious new show from French/English comedy duo Spitz & Co.

Directed by Angus Barr, it was developed as part of Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment with support from Arts Council England.

“Once again Morel and Donkin demonstrate their spectacular comedy chops and dramaturgical sophistication in an hour of non – stop hilarity. Theirs is a comedy partnership in perfect balance… unmissable.” Belinda Dillon, Exeunt Magazine

“The physical comedy is terrific – the tent scene is one of the silliest and funniest of the year.” **** The Reviews Hub

“Catch them now before they’re selling out the Albert Hall” Mel Giedroyc

Standard (advance) £9. Child (18 & under) £8. Senior citizen £8. Standard (on the door) £11. Licenced bar and raffle.

Eddie and the Gold Tops

A masterclass in musical-comedy, this joyous, nostalgic, feel-good tale follows the meteoric rise of a hard-working village milkman to stardom during the 1963 pop revolution. Chronicled with wit and invention, and with enjoyably stylish original songs and music by BBC Folk Awards nominee Jez Lowe, this charming show is sprinkled with irresistibly funny satire and delivered with a knowing wink.

Cinderella panto

Header for Cinderella panto at Queniborough Village Hall on 14 January 2017

Saturday 14 January 2017, 7:30 pm.

£15 family ticket (4 people)
£5.50 adult ticket
£3.50 child ticket (free entry for children under 3 years with a responsible ticket holder)

We hadn’t had a pantomime in years, so we invited Dream Team Theatre Company to Queniborough Village Hall for some seasonal panto fun. The show sold out! We joined Buttons, Cinders, her ugly sisters and, of course, the Prince for traditional family fun. Oh yes it was! We thrilled to the heroic acts, gasped at the villainous behavior, swooned to the destined romance, and laughed at the slapstick action and topical jokes. A good time was had by all. Check out the pictures below!

The Origin of Species, from Tangram Theatre Company

Saturday 6 February 2016 at 7:30 pm

Tangram’s last show Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking, was a funny and hugely enjoyable Edinburgh Fringe Festival sell-out and international smash hit.

The Origin of Species is a similarly uproarious show (with some interesting scientific facts too!) for young and old alike. It tells the incredible story of how Charles Darwin came to discover the secrets of evolution and why it took him over twenty years before he plucked up the courage to publish his remarkable idea.

It’s a show packed with big theories, terrible puns, brilliant physical comedy and six cracking original songs about everything from blasted boring barnacles to the perils of marrying your cousin.

Big Daddy vs Giant Haystacks

Big Daddy vs Giant Haystacks

1 February 2014 at 7:30 pm

At 4pm every Saturday, from 1976 to 1988, tens of millions of Britons, and countless more world-wide, were in the grip of an extraordinary sports phenomenon: watching two fat men (aka Shirley Crabtree and Martin Ruane) pretend to fight each other. This is their story.

This ‘British Heavyweight Champion Comedy’, by the writers of New Perspectives’ hit play ‘Those Magnificent Men’, brings back to grunting, grappling life these two hugely popular battling behemoths and the bizarre world they bestrode. With an “all-star cast of thousands”, including Dickie Davies, Paul McCartney, Chris Tarrant, Frank Sinatra, Princess Margaret, and Greg Dyke, this ambitious, touching, hilarious two-hander conjures up a whole nation during its most colourful era.

Featuring the winner of The Latest 7 Award for Best Male Performer 2011 Ross Gurney-Randall, and, fresh from Sky’s cult hit sit-com ‘This Is Jinsy’, David Mounfield.

You shall be moved.

hugely popular and entertaining…will appeal to both theatre and wrestling fans.****”
