Jack and the Beanstalk
We're feeling full of beans for our 2016 pantomime - oh yes we are!

Join us for a traditional family show full of music, laughter, silliness, a dancing cow and plenty of audience participation. Young and old alike will love our classic tale of poor old Jack who sells the family cow - for a pile of old beans.

The show will star - back by popular demand - funnyman Jon Clegg (Britain's Got Talent impressionist) as Simple Simon and Leicester's favourite dame Martin Ballard (BBC Radio Leicester) as Dame Trot. Further cast to be announced.

Produced by Imagine Theatre and written by The Tweenies' creators Iain Lauchlan and Will Brenton, it's a proper traditional panto for all the family. Come and boo the baddy Fleshcreep, cheer for our sparkling fairy and laugh as Jack gets tangled in all sorts of messes - will there be a happy ending? There's only one way to find out...

Calling all young performers!
Are you aged nine to 16? We need you in our junior chorus - auditions will be held on Sunday 3 July. More information to follow.

One Night of Elvis
Special orchestral concert to commemorate Elvis Presley's birthday.

There are Elvis tributes..... and then there’s Lee Memphis King.

Lee Memphis King, Europe’s most successful Elvis Presley tribute artist, recreates the essence of the King; The ’68 comeback Special and The Vegas Years with consummate ease and an almost unbelievable combination of stunningly accurate vocals and incredible passion in every performance.

In this special production to commemorate the King’s birthday, Lee Memphis King portrays Elvis Presley at his peak from the iconic Comeback Special to the spectacular The Vegas Years. Resplendent in the most authentic costumes from Elvis’s performance and a 20 piece orchestra - featuring brass and string sections - backing this incredible performer, prepare to be taken back in time to see Elvis in the way it was.

Over the last 10 years as Lee has toured his One Night of Elvis he has picked up numerous accolades and headlined and sold out some of the most prestigious venues across the UK and Europe.

The first half of the show opens with a tribute to the most iconic TV Music production in music history, the ’68 Comeback Special. Hound Dog, Heartbreak Hotel and Don’t Be Cruel are all recreated in the most authentic reproduction of the TV special. The first half closes with an incredible rendition of If I Can Dream.

The second half of the show is dedicated entirely to The Vegas Years when Elvis would perform in Las Vegas and tour throughout the US and Canada - the definitive record of these performances are contained in the films Elvis - That’s the Way It Is, Elvis On Tour and the Aloha from Hawaii concert.

The show is enhanced by an orchestra of world-class musicians and backing vocalists coupled with impressive video screen projection mapping out Elvis’s life and music.

Lee Memphis King recreates it all with stunning authenticity - the voice and, equally important for Lee, the passion and energy that Elvis put into his songs. He leaves audiences in no doubt that they are witnessing the world’s No 1 Elvis tribute artist. Pure entertainment and pure Presley.

Giselle

The most poignant of all classical ballets is filled with dramatic passion in a chilling and heart-rending tale of love, treachery and forgiveness from beyond the grave. The moving story of delicate Giselle and her aristocratic but duplicitous lover Albrecht is set to a glorious score. From the visual splendour of the rustic villagers happily gathering the harvest at the start of the story to the eerie moonlit forest haunted by beautifully drifting spirits, this production is unforgettable.

The critics said…"A heart-warming fantasy ballet."

Swan Lake
The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky's haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduced the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the dual role of Odette/ Odile is one of ballet's most unmissable technical challenges.

The Nutcracker
This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath. When midnight strikes we are swept away to a fairy-tale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the mouse-king and his mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins.

"...the scenery turned the stage into a winter wonderland."
