An exciting run of new productions has been added to the spring season at the Crewe Lyceum Theatre including stand-up from Jon Richardson, a comedy musical with Lesley Joseph and children’s entertainment by The Sooty Show and Bananas in Pyjamas.
New shows kick off with ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’ star Jon Richardson in his all new stand-up tour ‘Nidiot’ on Wednesday 16 April.
The perennial singleton and misanthrope is determined to become a more easy-going person for the sake of his friends and his future health.
Find out at the Crewe Lyceum Theatre whether or not a leopard can change its spots, or if they are doomed to be angry forever not to have been given a more uniform and symmetrical fur pattern.
Comedy continues with the addition Hot Flush! (Tuesday 6 May), starring Lesley Joseph, recently returned to the screens in ITV’s ‘Birds of a Feather’.
The naughtiest comedy musical in town, Hot Flush! will have temperatures rising and hormones raging as a quartet of successful post-40s women, led by Joseph, leave no stone unturned as they examine their relationships with men – and the menopause.
Crewe Lyceum Theatre continues to programme exciting shows for children and families with the addition of The Sooty Show (Friday 30 May) and Bananas in Pyjamas (Sunday 29 June).
The nation’s favourite bear, with Richard Cadell, comes straight from the hit ITV show to Crewe. Sooty, Sweep and Soo put on a show that’s perfect for children discovering the classic characters, and adults reliving nostalgia with their little ones.
Bananas in Pyjamas brings the eponymous nightwear-clad fruit onto the stage in a banana-riffic show filled with slapstick and audience participation.
B1, B2, Amy, Lulu and Morgan are all part of the party during this all-singing, all-dancing production for children of all ages.
Theatre Director Gordon Millar said:
“Crewe Lyceum Theatre is delighted to present even more high quality entertainment for audiences in the region.
We already have a packed line-up of big-name comedians such as Jason Manford and Alan Davies, blockbuster musicals ‘Blood Brothers’ and ‘New Jersey Nights’, Agatha Christie’s crime drama “The Mousetrap” and family favourites like ‘Peppa Pig’, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the theatre this spring.”
