Shows for October 2017

Our Country's Good

Thursday 12th October to Saturday 21st October at 7:30pm

The year is 1787. The place is Botany Bay, Australia. The people are a mixture of British convicts rejected from their home land and the unforgiving officers in charge of their punishment. But when a play is suggested as a means of passing time and rehabilitating the savages... the outcome shocks even some of the hardest hearts in this historical display of humanity and hope. 

12th, 13th, 14th & 20th October at 7:30PM
21st October at 2:30PM

This performance contains Adult Themes which some viewers might find offensive.

The Great British Take Off

Sunday 22nd October at 8pm

Starring Jon Culshaw & Bill Dare from Radio 4’s Dead Ringers Comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw and legendary comedy producer Bill Dare come to Lancaster Grand Theatre for the first time following their sell-out tour earlier in the year.

Join us for an evening of unscripted, unrehearsed, spontaneous comedy and conversati
on as politicians, sports personalities and celebrities old and new are all up for a
roasting. You, the audience, help choose which characters appear and what direction the show takes.
Jon reveals the secrets of mimicry, and shares stories of some of the fascinating characters that coloured his childhood in Lancashire and his early career. Together with Bill he also reveals some of the mishaps and mayhem of life behind the scenes in television and on the celebrity circuit.
With a few surprises for the general public of Lancaster thrown in for good measure, The Great British Take Off is topical, satirical, anecdotal and highly entertaining; it's never
the same show twice.
