Beauty and the Beast

When Fairy Bon-Bon and the Demon Diablo clash, selfish Pierre is transformed from a dashing Prince into a terrible Beast. Not only that, but Diablo and Bon-Bon lose their powers and are destined to become the Prince’s servants. To break the curse Pierre must fall in love before the last petal on a magical rose falls. But who could ever love such a monster? Enter feisty Belle Baguette from the nearby town of Jolie Ville. With her father the Professor and her zany neighbours Dame Fifi the schoolteacher and her son Bertie the onion seller, she finds herself trapped in the Castle of the Beast where the cups and saucers speak and the furniture can dance. When Belle stands up to the Beast their friendship grows. But danger lurks in the form of the dastardly mayoress of Jolie Ville, Camilla Parker-Bike. She intends to find Bon Bon’s missing magic wand and claim the Beasts kingdom for herself. Will the Beast melt Belle’s heart? Will the Queen of the Imps ever get to sing her song? And will Dame Fifi manage to control her pupils without a trip to Specsavers? Tickets £10 Standard / £7 Concession Tuesday 23rd January: ALL TICKETS £7 Can offer group discounts at request.

Heads Up – Kieran Hurley

Multi award-winner Kieran Hurley weaves a picture of a familiar city at its moment of destruction, asking what would we do if we found ourselves at the end of our world as we know it.

A city. Just like this. Right now. A teenage girl boils up in rage in a toilet cubicle. A finance worker preaches doom in a busy train station. An absurd coke-addled celebrity races through town on a mission. A paranoid stoner stares blankly at the endless disasters on the TV news. In just one moment, all their worlds will end. "Urgent, compelling, beautiful writing confirms Hurley’s status as one of the most powerful writers to emerge in British theatre this decade.” ★★★★The Scotsman “Superb storytelling theatre...Hurley’s new show is a quiet hurricane blowing through the city. It is anxious whisper that becomes a shout; a moment of silence that turns into the high-pitched whine of catastrophe.”★★★★The Guardian 2016 The Scotsman Fringe First award winner / Total Edinburgh Festival Fringe sell-out run

Doors open at 9.30am and close again at 4.30pm. The Christmas Stitch Up is supporting Rowcroft Hospice and Children’s Hospice South West, two very worthwhile causes here in Devon. A great variety of arts and crafts will be on show and for sale at one of the largest gathering of crafters in the South West. Not only will there be items for sale, but there will also be the opportunity to see how some are made and to have a go yourself. Entrance to the event is free, but donations are gratefully received. The Molly Button Café proved to be very popular at the last event and the menu has been updated with delicious hot chocolates, mince pies and Christmas bakes. You can start off your day with breakfast baps, or have a light lunch of various Pasties, homemade Quiches and sandwiches, all served with salad. No day out is complete without a naughty cake – and there will be plenty on offer at this event! And with a dollop of local Clotted Cream! These all day craft markets bring to you a wealth of local talent and a great day out. If you would like more details, please contact Louise. Stalls are available for 2018, but are booking up quite quickly.
