A couple of ‘fly’ by night shows

STANTONBURY Campus Theatre has a couple of tasty shows ready for you this week, starting tonight with Lord of the Flies.

It’s the second world war and a plane has crashed on an uninhabited island.

The only survivors are a group of schoolboys.

With no rules and regulations to guard and mould them, how long will it take before disorder takes over?

Sell A Door Theatre Company are bringing William Golding’s significant work to the stage, and what starts as a game-like scenario soon turns into a psychological minefield of betrayal, power struggles and violence, when morality is pitted against immorailty.

Tickets are £12.50, £2 less for concessions and show time is 7.30pm.

On Saturday afteroon, make the kids smile with an afternoon visit to watch The People’s Theatre Company, who present the classic kids tale There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly...can you see a pattern, forming?

Nearly forty years old, the nursery rhyme is also one of the most popular around, and, say those behind the piece, is ‘the perfect treat for anyone aged four to 104!’

Tickets are £7.50 for adults, £5.50 for kids, or pick up a family ticket for £22.

Show time is 2.30pm, and it lasts for a mere 55 minutes, (meaning that sport loving dads can spend quality time with their nippers and still be out of the theatre to check the footie score before half time! It’s a no-brainer!)

Call to book tickets for either performance on MK 324422 or go online to theatre@stantonbury.org.uk
