Cinema – Stan & Ollie (May 3rd 2019)

Laurel and Hardy — the world’s greatest comedy team — face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership. With Steve Coogan & John C Reilly

Stand-Up Comedy – 2nd March 2019

Members of the St Peter’s School Association have organised an evening of stand-out stand-up comedy as a fundraising event. Cassington Village Hall, on The Green, will host four professional comedians for an audience of a hundred locals.

The headline act for the evening is standup comedian Troy Hawke, an erudite home-schooled 1930’s throwback… a kind of Errol Flynn of the high street. Educated, sophisticated, but utterly clueless. He tackles modern issues head on in his uniquely untimely manner.
“A must see” Daily Mirror
“His act was a comedy masterpiece” The Stratford Telegraph
“He left some of our audience blinded by tears of laughter. A rare genius”

Troy will be supported by Harry Stachini, Earl Okin and Christian Russell-Pollock.

Harry Stachini started performing comedy after attending a Hot Water Comedy course in 2013 at the tender age of 18. Harry is beginning to establish himself as a strong act on the comedy circuit with his easy-going style along with his likeable character which just adds to the brilliance of the stories and the unexpected one-liners that has crowds in stitches.
“A talented new comedian with some first-rate material” Smacked Arse Comedy.

For years, Earl Okin first learnt his stagecraft in folk and jazz clubs. When they were replaced by comedy clubs, Earl moved effortlessly from one to the other and has been a sought after act on the UK comedy circuit for decades.
“The man is unmissable! He’s a joy! He’s a classic!, He’s a must.” Russel Hunter

Christian Russell-Pollock has 23 letters and a hyphen, so is literally one of the biggest names in comedy. Christian has been entertaining audiences across the country since his debut in 2016. His friendly, affable nature combined with his carefully crafted brand of incisive jokes and witty stories has seen him become a firm crowd favourite.
“A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on…an impressively wide range of topics…bringing flair and confidence to them all.” Steve Bennett

Tickets for the event are £15 and are available from Eventbrite or in person from St Peter’s School Office, any queries to Suzi Lewis

Theatre – The Thankful Village (20th October 2018)

The return of the original comedy-drama by Kate Bramley with songs and music by SONY Award winning songwriter Jez Lowe starring Frances Tither, Zoe Land and Sarah Raine.

A poignant play that follows the lives of three women from the same rural household- above and below stairs- through the long years of The Great War, left behind to cope as their men-folk march off to Flanders. Each one faces up to the challenges in her own way, with resilience, humour, a sense of duty and whatever vestiges of hope she can muster, as the years pass by and they wait anxiously for news of loved ones far away. The cannot know that their village will end the war as one of a very few similar communities for which fate has reserved a special place in history.

“defiant humour, emotional clout and a poignant final twist, making you thankful for the under-appreciated Great War service of women as much as the men whose story is familiar from history books and the War Poets alike” York Press

7.30pm. Tickets Adult £10 / Child £6
