Aladdin

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society.

Widow Twankey’s in a spin – there’s the Emperor’s robes to be cleaned, stir fry to be cooked and the mysterious magician, Abanazer, to be catered for. Then her eldest son Aladdin falls for Princess Fire Cracker, the Emperor’s daughter, and she nearly chokes on her chop suey. But when Aladdin and his pet monkey, Cuddles, get their hands on an ancient oil lamp, a rocking green Genie magically appears to make all their dreams come true. Can they outwit the evil Abanazer, dodge the Emperor’s dragons, and prove that a Princess and a peasant can make the perfect pair?

This ancient tale gets a brand new twist, incorporating over twenty classic songs including I’m A Believer, Papa Don’t Preach, ABC, I Will Survive and Highway to Hell, all played live by our multi talented company of actor-musicians. Mix in outrageous jokes and classic slapstick, with some wicked magic, and Aladdin serves up a sizzling hot feast for all the family.

Aladdin

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society.

Widow Twankey’s in a spin – there’s the Emperor’s robes to be cleaned, stir fry to be cooked and the mysterious magician, Abanazer, to be catered for. Then her eldest son Aladdin falls for Princess Fire Cracker, the Emperor’s daughter, and she nearly chokes on her chop suey. But when Aladdin and his pet monkey, Cuddles, get their hands on an ancient oil lamp, a rocking green Genie magically appears to make all their dreams come true. Can they outwit the evil Abanazer, dodge the Emperor’s dragons, and prove that a Princess and a peasant can make the perfect pair?

This ancient tale gets a brand new twist, incorporating over twenty classic songs including I’m A Believer, Papa Don’t Preach, ABC, I Will Survive and Highway to Hell, all played live by our multi talented company of actor-musicians. Mix in outrageous jokes and classic slapstick, with some wicked magic, and Aladdin serves up a sizzling hot feast for all the family.

The Ultimate Louis Armstrong Show

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Presented by Terry Dash Music

The Bateman Brothers Jazz Band has become one of Britain’s most established professional jazz bands hitting the jazz scene with a bang very quickly after they were formed! They model themselves on the Louis Armstrong All-Stars, probably the greatest jazz band that there ever was. Alan Bateman’s stunning trumpet playing has the critics struggling to tell the difference between him and Louis and the rest of the band follow suit in their respective roles.

Building on this success the band has put together an even bigger show. Encompassing the entire career of Louis ‘Satchmo’ Armstrong, they are presenting ‘The Ultimate Louis Armstrong Show’. In order to do this, they feature three very special guest stars:
- Enrico Tomasso (trumpet)
- Sean Moyses (banjo)
- Denise Gordon (vocals)

You'll get a non-stop show that will have you on the edge of your seats right from the start and a finale that will leave you craving for more. That's how it was with Louis and that is how it is with The Bateman Brothers Jazz Band.

Messy

New Wolsey Studio, St Georges Street, Ipswich, IP1 3NF

A few more details ...

Meet Daisy. She's got a messy brain and a messy bedroom. No matter what she does, "The Mess" just seems to follow her about! Which makes it very difficult to look for stuff. Important stuff. Like Mr Twiggy!

When Daisy is chosen to look after Mr Twiggy the class hamster, Daisy (and the rest of her class) worry she might lose him. So she’s very glad when best friend Beth decides to stay over to lend a hand. In fact, Beth, Daisy and Mr Twiggy are going to have the best weekend ever! But things don’t quite go to plan...

Can Daisy use the adventures of "The Mess" to find Mr Twiggy and prove everyone wrong?

Multi-award winning Zoo Co present this magical and visual story complete with original music, puppets, tap dancing and even a trip to the moon! All the while celebrating the stories that explode from "The Mess".

Performed by a Deaf and hearing cast with Sign Supported English, Messy has been created in partnership with ADHD Foundation and all performances are Relaxed Performances, which means if you need to stand up, sit down, wriggle around, leave or come back in, that’s absolutely fine! There aren't any loud noises and the lights will stay on in the theatre so it won’t be too dark.

Don't forget to book into the Messy workshop too! Please see the link below.

Marvellous Mess - Messy Workshop

HEG High Street Exhibition Gallery, High Street, Ipswich, IP1 3QH

A few more details ...

Daisy's going on another adventure, and this time, she needs you! Welcome to the Imagination Creation Station! Let's build a city... or a rocket... or a jungle... it's up to you.

Children ages 3-8 and their parents/ carers are invited into a world of creative chaos and marvellous mess. What can you invent when the sky is the limit?! This workshop will be a hands-on theatre and craft event where children can invent, build and play within their own cardboard creations, alongside the characters from Messy! There will be certificates for the most imaginative inventions and lots of games led by Daisy and her friends.

We believe that the freedom to get messy and to be imaginative is a vital part of being a kid. Because of the 'hands on' nature of this workshop, children must have an adult supervisor with them at all times (1 adult per 2 children). Grown ups are very much encouraged to join in! (And in return, you can leave The Mess for us to clean up afterwards).

We know it can be tricky for families with disabled or SEND children to work out if an activity will be a good fit. We very warmly welcome children or adults who are SEND, d/Deaf, disabled or have any further access needs. Zoo Co's experienced team (including the performers) will be on hand to support all children to participate fully in the workshop. We can provide: BSL signers, vocal guides for visually impaired children, a quiet break-out space, the freedom to come and go, lots of space to wiggle around and make noise, and an experienced team who are passionate about inclusion. There won't be any loud music playing. Your child will be met with positivity, understanding and empathy, no matter what. Everybody is invited.

The Ballad of Maria Marten

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

By Beth Flintoff

Eastern Angles and Matthew Linley Creative Projects in association with the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough

Director - Hal Chambers

A thrilling retelling of a real-life murder mystery…

(for East Anglian venues - A thrilling retelling of Suffolk’s real-life murder mystery… )

Summer, 1827. In a red barn Maria Marten awaits her lover. A year later her body is found under the floor of the barn in a grain sack, barely identifiable, and the manhunt begins.

Maria’s story sent shock waves throughout the country. The Red Barn Murder (as it became known) was national news, inspiring writers and filmmakers down the ages. The sort of gruesome tale that had all the hallmarks of a classic crime drama – a missing body, a country location, a disreputable squire and a village stuck in its age-old traditions.

But in all this hysteria Maria’s own story gets lost. Until now. Hal Chambers and Beth Flintoff’s spine-tingling retelling rediscovers her story, bringing it back to vivid, urgent life.

Bugsy Malone

Seckford Theatre, Burkitt Road, Woodbridge, IP12 4JH

A few more details ...

The National Award Winning Children’s Theatre Company proudly presents

Everyone's favourite fun gangster musical comes complete with custard pies and splurge guns! Bugsy Malone is a master class in musical comedy.

Set in New York City, two gangs square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards.

Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the "splurge" gun - a weapon that shoots whipped cream! Now, Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble.

Bugsy, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the
gangster limelight when he becomes the last chance that Fat Sam's gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love and aspiring singer, Blousey Brown, but will he be able to resist seductive songstress Tallulah and stay out of trouble while helping Fat Sam defend his business?

PLEASE NOTE: The New Wolsey Theatre is acting as a ticketing agency for this event. Please check the venue and event details carefully.

The Ballad of Maria Marten

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

By Beth Flintoff

Eastern Angles and Matthew Linley Creative Projects in association with the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough

Director - Hal Chambers

A thrilling retelling of a real-life murder mystery…

(for East Anglian venues - A thrilling retelling of Suffolk’s real-life murder mystery… )

Summer, 1827. In a red barn Maria Marten awaits her lover. A year later her body is found under the floor of the barn in a grain sack, barely identifiable, and the manhunt begins.

Maria’s story sent shock waves throughout the country. The Red Barn Murder (as it became known) was national news, inspiring writers and filmmakers down the ages. The sort of gruesome tale that had all the hallmarks of a classic crime drama – a missing body, a country location, a disreputable squire and a village stuck in its age-old traditions.

But in all this hysteria Maria’s own story gets lost. Until now. Hal Chambers and Beth Flintoff’s spine-tingling retelling rediscovers her story, bringing it back to vivid, urgent life.

Once

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

A Broadway and West End hit musical that's a ravishing love story with a bittersweet difference, Once casts a spell over the audience just as its two lead characters cast a spell over each other.

Based on a cult 2006 Irish indie feature, originally shot on a micro-budget of just $160,000, it tells the uplifting yet yearning story of a part-time Dublin guitarist busker (who works by day in his dad's Hoover repair shop) who falls unexpectedly in love with a young Czech immigrant fellow musician. As we follow their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways.

As conjured by a score of original Irish-inflected songs, written by the original stars of the film Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, the atmosphere is partly a busked concert and partly an aching romance that feels both spontaneous and freshly minted. The music, played live by the actors themselves, is alternately beautiful and rousing, and Enda Walsh's script quietly overwhelms with its sense of spirit, sincerity and solitude.

There's no other show quite like it. It's the most unusual, unique and affecting musical you're ever likely to see. It has a spontaneous free-form improvisatory vitality, yet it is also emotionally precise in the understated air of longing that anyone who has ever been in love will recognise instantly.

And audiences will fall head over heels in love with the show, too. Once is a genuine one-off which you'll need to see at least once -- but it's also unlikely to be your last time, as you'll want to see it again (and again).

Stephen Foster Presents Some Kind Of Wonderful

Two of the UK's finest musicians - saxophonist Derek Nash and singer Noel McCalla – come together to celebrate the music of one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time. An award-winning saxophonist, Derek Nash is perhaps best known as one of the featured saxophonists with the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orcxhestra, leader of the enormously successful Sax Appeal and co-leader of the funk/groove outfit Protect The Beat. Noel McCalla first came to prominence in the seminal jazz/funk band Morrisey Mullen while also providing vocals on Genesis bassist Mike Rutherford’s highly acclaimed album Smallcreep’s Day. These two remarkable musicians, along with a stellar band that includes Neil Angilley (Vanessa Mae, Down To The Bone) on piano, Jonathan Noyce (Jethro Tull, Gary Moore) on bass and Nic France (David Gilmour, Bill Withers) on drums, will be bringing to life some of Stevie's many classics. This amalgamation of two truly wonderful musicians over the melting pot of one of the greatest songwriters of all time promises to be a unique and powerful experience and is not to be missed.
