Once upon a time there were four little rabbits…

Saturday, 15th July 2017

Quantum Theatre – Once upon a time there were four little rabbits…
Meet Beatrix Potter as she tells us her very first tale of Peter Rabbit, who knows only too well that he is not to go into Mr McGregor’s garden, (especially as it was there that his father met his untimely end!)  But Peter cannot resist….. and it’s only after several nasty scrapes and minus all his clothes that he finally escapes home to a severe telling-off from his mother.
But Peter doesn’t learn his lesson and with his cousin Benjamin returns to the garden to recover his lost clothing.  This time, however, there’s more danger on the prowl in the shape of Mr McGregor’s cat.  Will Benjamin’s father come to the rescue in time and what will Mr McGregor make of those little footprints in his garden?
Follow the scrapes and escapades of all your favourite characters from the Peter Rabbit tales in Quantum Theatre’s delightful new production; a magical and enchanting experience for young and old alike.

Baroque Theatre Comedy Triple Bill!

Thursday, 20th July 2017

Baroque Theatre return to Penlee in 2017 with a triple comedy bill!
A Jolly Sinister Jape (by Elliot Strange)
A pastiche 1920’s thriller with a plot that defies description. This is Famous Five fun for adults as Stubby, Ophelia, Biffy and Fatty find themselves trapped in a mysterious house during a thunderstorm. Is this someone’s idea of a jape? Or is something far more sinister going on? All is revealed in this madcap comedy set in the Roaring Twenties. It’s fast and furious with a liberal sprinkling of hilarious period slang, along with mystery and thrills.
Last Tango in Little Grimley (by David Tristram)
Membership of the local amateur dramatic society has dwindled to four and the audiences aren’t much bigger. If they don’t come up with some rent money soon, they’re going to be thrown out. Time for dramatic action. “There’s only one thing that sells tickets these days” argues Gordon the Chairman. “Sex!”  But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this hilarious play and thus begins the chaotic build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama – an evening the locals would never forget!
Last Panto in Little Grimley (by David Tristram)
Sequel to Last Tango in Little Grimley, Last Panto in Little Grimley features the same incompetent characters. Gordon, Margaret, Joyce and Bernard tackle the Christmas Pantomime with predictable riotous results. It’s Dick Whittington…but not as you know it!
Thursday July 20th - 7:30 pm
The open-air theatre is situated in front of Penlee House in Penlee Park, Penzance, Cornwall.
