5 Years

Lusting For Life & The End Of The World As We Know It

Thursday 8 Jun @ East Riding Theatre

Two Plays For The Price Of One!

Cortona Productions are performing two wickedly funny comedy dramas on the same night. There is an interval in the middle and your ticket provides entry to both. Due to a ‘smattering’ of language and some mild sexual innuendo, both plays are suitable for adults.

Beverley Musical Theatre presents The Addams Family

Tuesday 13 – Saturday 17 Jun @ Beverley Memorial Hall

The Addams Family Musical tells the story of the iconic family whose values of love, acceptance, and loyalty are put to the test when their now 18-year-old daughter Wednesday falls in love with a “normal” boy named Lucas. Gomez & Morticia are forced to grapple with issues of adaptation and acceptance as they try to embrace Wednesday’s new love while staying true to their own values.

The two families meet for a fateful dinner with hilarious consequences as Pugsley, Grandma and Fester try to meddle and end up disclosing far more than anyone had expected.

The show is rated PG with some mild language and subtle bedroom humour.
