  "THE BEAUX STRATAGEM" NT LIVE ! Thursday 3rd September 7.00 pm
The ‘Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, are two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.
Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.
But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.
Beaux is a perfect candidate for a light-hearted summer outing which will entertain and delight.

  "Showboat" SAN FRANCISCO OPERA LIVE ! Saturday 19th September 7.30 pm
A true classic of American musical theater, this tale of life on the Mississippi from the 1880s to the 1920s is both a poignant love story and a powerful reminder of the bitter legacy of racism.

 [Performed by San Francisco Opera]
  "Coriolanus" NT LIVE ! Thursday 24th September 7.00 pm
When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too.
Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.
Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, Coriolanus features an Evening Standard Award-winning performance from Tom Hiddleston

  "The Carlton Colliers" Sunday 18th October 7.30 pm
A comic, backstreet fairytale that sees a hard up village transformed forever, when a hapless bunch of social outcasts and local-league cast-offs, with barely a stud in their boots, are transported magically to a whole other level, a league apart.
And we can only watch in wonder, as the rays of light from their new-found success spill over to envelop the whole town in a swathe of glory that transforms it from grey drabness to multi-coloured mystery.
Join us for a quirky new comedy about village life, love and sometimes..err...football. About dreaming big in an old pit village and the daft things that start to happen when you do.
Kate Bramley and Badapple Theatre bring you "Nuggety northern humour...delivered in typically enjoyable performances"
 £9.50/ U16s £5
  "Beryl" Thursday 22nd October 7.30 pm
Maxine Peake’s witty, charming and critically acclaimed play celebrates the life of unsung sporting legend Beryl Burton – the greatest woman on two wheels.
When Beryl Charnock met keen cyclist Charlie Burton she was smitten, not only with Charlie but by the thrill and freedom she found on her bike. She would out-work the men in the rhubarb fields, she could out-class the cyclists on the road and still find time to knit young Denise a cycling jumper (though it wasn't meant to come down to her knees!)
With her husband, daughter and cycling club at her side, she became 5 times world pursuit champion, 13 times national pursuit champion and twice road-racing world champion - she was one of the most astonishing sports people ever.
Beryl Burton MBE, OBE, wife and mother, cycled her way into the record books becoming world and British record-holder and, with a determination to be the best, she always cycled home a hero.
A West Yorkshire Playhouse production
