    This beloved tale, in which a Kansas farm girl travels over the rainbow to discover the magical power of home, has been entertaining audiences for generations.

    With all the classic songs such as; “Over The Rainbow,” “If I Only Had A Brain” and “We’re Off To See The Wizard (Follow The Yellow Brick Road)” this magical musical will bring as much joy to parents watching as it will to our young actors performing.


    Rehearsals take place at Hampton Hill Theatre on Tuesday afternoons, the United Reformed Church in Hampton Hill on Wednesday afternoons, and St. Mary’s University, Twickenham on a Saturday.

    Auditions for our Christmas show will be held Sunday 15th September at St. Mary’s University in Twickenham from 11.00am – 1.30pm and from 2.30pm – 5.00pm.

    Auditions are run in workshop format and are great fun for all involved.  Children participating in the workshop will learn a song from the show and work on some short scenes and movement in small groups.

    There will also be an opportunity to ask questions about the production and find out more about Dramacube shows.

    We will contact parents within 3 days of the audition to offer places.

    There is a £20 audition fee which will be deducted from the project fee when a child joins the company or refunded if a place cannot be offered.

    Jazz On The Plaza - 60th Anniversary of 'Kind Of Blue'

    This month's Jazz On the Plaza concert will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Kind Of Blue. In the intimate setting at Café Yukari, the compositions of this seminal album will be the focus of this duo concert.

    Released on the 16th August in 1959, Kind of Blue by Miles Davis has been regarded by many critics as the greatest jazz record and one of the best albums of all time. Its influence on music, including jazz, rock and classical genres, has also led writers to deem it one of the most influential albums ever recorded.

    Limited seating so we recommend early booking.

    Gabriel Garrick - trumpet
    Terence Collie - piano

    7:15-8:15pm: Level 1 – Beginner swing dance class
    Our beginners class always assumes no prior knowledge, so absolute beginners are welcome to join us any week. There’s no need to book in advance or bring a partner. Just arrive ready for some fun!

    8:30-9:30pm: Level 2 – Intermediate class
    When you start feeling confident in Level 1 – this is the class for you! You have probably been to your first social dance by now and will have made it all the way through at least one whole song. As well as looking at fancy moves there will be styling, variations and plenty of tips to help you lead, follow and really dance to the music. Ideally you will have done at least one 10 week beginner cycle and covered all the footwork patterns that we teach at Level 1 (Lindy hop with kicks or triple steps and 1930s Charleston).

    Spirit, by Sue Beattie, takes the audience on a captivating journey of ordinary people’s otherworldly experiences. The puppetry moves from delicate marionette to table top and from object theatre to shadows. The visuals of the show are constructed around the voices of real people relating personal stories and contemplating life and living. Their reflections and narratives are humorous, inspiring and in some cases deeply moving.

    Running time: 1hr including interval 

    Suitable for adults.
