A Murder is Announced

April 19 — April 23

The residents of Chipping Cleghorn are astonished to read an advert in the local newspaper that a murder will take place this coming Friday at Little Paddocks, the home of Letitia Blacklock. Unable to resist. The group gather at the house at the appointed time, when the lights go out and a gun is fired. Enter Miss Marple, who must unravel a complex series of relationships and events to solve the mystery of a killer. The performance stars Judy Cornwell, best known for her much loved portrayal of Daisy in Keeping Up Appearances, and Diane Fletcher, forever immortalised as Elizabeth Urquhart in House of Cards. At Bury St Edmunds’ Theatre Royal.

The Snow Queen

April 22-23

Marwyn School of Dancing, who perform a show every year, gives pupils the opportunity to showcase their syllabus through the magic of a story. This year, the Ipswich school branch is performing The Snow Queen, a magical story of good triumphing over evil in a world of eternal winter created by an evil Snow Queen. At The Seckford Theatre, Woodbridge.

Sweeny Todd

April 23

Great Yarmouth Players make their debut at The Seagull Theatre, Pakefield with their performance of the non-musical Sweeney Todd melodrama. The intense horror show is brought to the stage following the story of the crazed barber returning to London to avenge his family, accompanied by a sea captain, Anthony. Anthony falls in love with the evil Judge’s ward who happens to be Todd’s daughter. Todd meanwhile sets up with Mrs Lovett, the pie maker, and provides her with fillings for her pies. The play has some scenes of horror and some bad language. Suitable for ages 14+.

‘Talking in the Library’ by Jackie Carreira

April 22

A moving exploration of literature, literacy and life, set in the library where four disparate characters meet. £9 / £8 concs tickets available from the Dun Cow pub or Bardwell Post Office.

The Odyssey

April 23

The King, Odysseus (Christopher Tandy) separated from his family for ten years of brutal war, faces another ten year struggle to return home as a reckless God (Jonathan Goddard) drags him on an epic journey across oceans to strange lands and the darkness beyond. Immortal beauties, shape shifters, monsters and sorcerers both guide and torment the king as he hurtles towards a savage and desperate reunion with his Queen. The cast and creative team that brought you the multi-award winning Dracula present a vision of a broken world, from faded New York pageants to islands of fantasy; brutal seas, battlefields and a gateway to Hades. Set to music ranging from Mozart to Mark Lanegan; Sacred Arias to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and an originally composed score; this Odyssey is of now – contemporary horror and fantasy splintering from ancient myth; the themes universal: how we face our mortality and the driving force of the Gods inside us.

You’ve Got A Friend - The Music of James Taylor & Carole King

April 23

From the creators of the smash hit WEST END show ‘The Simon & Garfunkel Story’ comes a new theatre experience celebrating two of the World’s greatest songwriters of all time - James Taylor and Carole King.
