Things to do: This week

Mon 11 - Sun 17 Sept

The Night Pirates
■ The Rose Theatre, Kingston ■ until Sat 16 Sept

This charming modern-day classic has been adapted and directed for stage by the talented writer Miranda Larson. It combines original songs and swashbuckling adventures. Suitable for any budding young pirates up to 6 years old.


Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
■ New Victoria Theatre, Woking  ■ Tues 12 – Sat 16 Sept

I never officially learned the words to all the songs from Joseph but somehow I picked them up by osmosis from one school production or another. The child-friendly musical based on the Biblical story of Joseph and his jealous brothers is in Woking this month. So, you’ve another chance to see a Pharaoh chanelling Elvis and a new opportunity to see X-Factor winner Joe McElderry donning the technicolour dreamcoat.


Moscow State Circus
■ Hersham Green, KT12 5LU ■ Wed 13 – Sun  17 Sept

The world’s most famous circus will bring it’s latest and greatest production GOSTINITSA – a show that promises to have all the spectacle and nerve-tingling, edge of your seat thrills for the whole family. The clowns guide the audience through the show featuring acts such as that are quite frankly very tricky to describe, but involve things like stupidly high swings; ten metre poles balanced on one man with three girls climbing and spinning to the very top and, of course, the high wire.


NT Live: Yerma
■ Cranleigh Arts Centre ■ Thurs 14 Sept

Billie Piper returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role as Yerma, a young woman driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child. Simon Stone’s production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece got rave reviews when it premiered in London last year and it returns to the Young Vic for just a few dates this summer. This is a delayed live screening.  Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.


Bye Bye Baby: The Story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons
■ Camberley Theatre ■ Fri 15 Sept

Bye Bye Baby takes you back in time on a musical journey through the career of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. From their early beginning in the 1950s, when Frankie first joined the group, this show celebrates the greatest hits such as ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’; ‘Walk Like A Man’;  and of course ‘Bye Bye Baby’. Jamie Ledwith scales the falsetto heights of Frankie Valli, and the choreography is pretty snappy too.


Showstopper! The Improvised Musical
■ Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford ■ Fri 15 – Sat 16 Sept

Picture: Geraint Lewis
