Auditions for the Annapolis District Drama Group Spring 2020 production of “The Ladykillers” will be held at Kings Theatre on Wednesday 18th December at 6.30pm.
Directed by Simon Bonnington, the play is to be performed at King’s Theatre – performances will be Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March 2020. Rehearsals are scheduled to be Saturday morning 10am and Wednesday evenings, commencing in the first week of January.
Professor Marcus and his gang of dastardly (but inept) ne’er-do-wells are planning a security van heist. They select for their hide-out the upstairs bedroom of an eccentric but sweet little old lady. As a cover for their criminal plotting, the gang masquerade as an amateur string quintet using the room for rehearsal space.The elderly widow discovers their subterfuge – and the gang realise that she must be silenced. But none of them are prepared to do the deed…
This is a superb and hilarious stage adaptation of the classic Ealing Studios ‘dark comedy’ crime film (1955), which starred Alec Guiness, Herbert Lom and Peter Sellers
The Olivier Award winning production of Shakespear’s The Winter’s Tale starring Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench returns for an encore presentation.
The critically acclaimed production was the first in the hugely successful Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live season, which was broadcast to cinemas from London’s Garrick Theatre over the course of a year in 2015. Due to phenomenal demand, the production returns to cinemas this festive season.
The tragicomedy of obsession and redemption is beautifully reimagined in a production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Branagh with a remarkable cast, featuring Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman (Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile), Jessie Buckley (star of breakout British film Wild Rose), Hadley Fraser, Miranda Raison and Branagh as Leontes.
King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences…
“I am delighted our production of The Winter’s Tale is to return to cinemas around the world this December. We worked hard to bring the immediacy and excitement of the live stage production into cinemas, using film techniques to make these broadcasts appropriately cinematic, without compromising the theatrical experience. The Winter’s Tale was seen by over 250,000 people around the world the first time around, and we look forward to welcoming back people who saw it previously and as well as new audiences to this most magical Shakespeare play”

FREE MOVIE IN CELEBRATION OF AFRICAN HERITAGE MONTH
Black Panther is a gorgeous, groundbreaking celebration of black culture
Marvel’s Black Panther is a cultural phenomenon, a historic box office success that’s brought in rave reviews and sparked conversation all over social media and traditional media alike. There are no signs of the excitement abating, either, as the conversation about the film has evolved from discussions about the importance of representation into something grander: a rather groundbreaking celebration of black culture.
With an all-star collection of majority black talent both in front of and behind the camera, Black Panther, under the direction of Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed), is about more than the latest superhero’s journey; it’s also about black culture’s journey, and it points toward a future where it could be the culture. It acknowledges and celebrates everything from traditional African society to African-American political debates, from the power and beauty of black women to the preservation of identity, all within the lush confines of the fictional African nation of Wakanda.
All told, Black Panther’s greatest legacy may not be what it’s done for Marvel, Hollywood, or box office records, but what it’s done for the culture. In Wakanda, which offers much to marvel at for audiences of all backgrounds, black viewers in particular have found a cultural oasis that feels like nothing we’ve seen before. — Vox
Admission: FREE FOR ALL
