Summer Holiday by Hey Kids

hey kids summer holidayTuesday 18 October - Saturday 22 October 2016

The award winning Children’s section of Heywood AODS presents this funny show based on the film Summer Holiday

Four London Bus mechanics strike up a deal with London Transport. They do up a double decker London Bus, and aim to drive it to the South of France as a sort of hotel. If they make it they reckon they might be able to charge people to go the following year and run it as a business.

While on the road in France they pick up 3 ladies whose car has broken down and offer to take them to their next singing job in Athens. They also pick up a stowaway - a young, American boy.

Meanwhile, a young American female singer has gone missing. Her mother (who is a VERY ambitious woman) and her press agent refused her a holiday, so she ran away. They take the story to the press, and her mother traces a phone call to the singer’s whereabouts. So, off they go in pursuit.

As we find out the young American boy is actually the young American girl, Barbara, who is missing. Mayhem ensues as the lead character, Don falls for Barbara, and the travellers cross through Switzerland, Italy, and into Greece trying to keep one step ahead of Barbara’s mother.

Eventually, when the 8 bus riders reach Athens, they're arrested for kidnapping. In front of her mother and a Ballroom filled with world-press, Barbara and Don declare their love for each other and the mother accepts (after realising how 'big' Don will become). The show ends with a beach party on a Greek beach with everyone very much enjoying their well-deserved holiday!

Evening Performances: Doors 7pm, Curtain Up 7.30pm

Saturday Matinée: Doors 1.45pm, Curtain Up 2.15pm

Tickets: Stalls: Adults £12, Children and Concessions £10, Family Ticket (2 Adults and 2 Children) £38

Cinderella

Sunday 18 December - Monday 26 December 2016

The most magical pantomime of all, you'll have a ball!

Shone Productions are thrilled to be appearing at Heywood Civic Centre this Christmas with the most magical pantomime of them all.

Cinderella has always dreamed of leaving her wicked stepmother and her life as a servant to meet a handsome prince. After the announcement that Prince Charming is to be holding a royal ball, it seems she may get her wish after all, but with the Ugly Sisters about who knows what can happen. Still with the help of Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and a generous helping of fairy dust, perhaps her wish will come true?

But there is only one way to find out, so come on down to the Heywood Civic Centre this Christmas to see spectacular scenery, stunning costumes, brilliant songs and dance routines and hilarious jokes.

This will be a fabulous production so get your tickets now and don't be late for the ball!
