Westacre Theatre will have you well and truly Hooked this Christmas!

Westacre Theatre Company are sprinkling fairy dust over Christmas this year as they stage a new and magical production of the much-loved classic Peter Pan.

Running from Friday 16 December – Saturday 24 December, Westacre Theatre will stage Peter Pan, an exciting, alternative, family Christmas show full of music, laughter, and fairy dust.

Developed by writer Becky Owen-Fisher, this cherished story will be told with Westacre Theatre’s usual theatrical flair, with lots of surprises, swashbuckling and enchantment. Peter Pan is the perfect Christmas treat for all the family. “Think of a special, great, big, epic, brilliant, marvellous happy moment”

Westacre Theatre Director Sadie Grist says “We could not be more thrilled to have the theatre brimming with energy and festive craziness this Christmas! We are so excited to see rehearsals which are full of music and laughter. Our directors Becky and Tom have a huge amount of experience directing high energy, slick, fun productions, and we have no doubt that Westacre Theatre Company’s Peter Pan will be a prime example of this!”

Featuring a large cast, many drawn from the theatre’s growing pool of talented young actors, writer Becky Owen-Fisher has been enjoying getting to experience first-hand the particular brand of magic this jewel in West Norfolk’s creative crown offers. 

Westacre Theatre has been producing high-quality theatre, offering creative opportunities and artistic activities to the people of West Norfolk and beyond for over 30 years and is still going strong.

Becky says “Working with Westacre Theatre company has been super special. Our huge cast ranges in age from Grandparents to Grandkids, and everyone plays Peter Pan! There’s loads of silly songs, swashbuckling sword fights, magical moments and daft jokes. Join us in Neverland this Christmas and remember just how much fun it is not to grow up!”

Audiences come to Westacre Theatre at Christmas for something different and director Tom Fox is creating a high-energy show that will appeal to all ages. Get ready to be transported to Neverland, via Westacre Theatre and the second star to the right, for a performance you won’t forget!

Tom says “Peter Pan is all about not growing up, it’s a fun, playful adventure full of joy, laughter and silliness. This show is absolutely packed full of fun and creativity, and we hope the audience will enjoy watching it as much as we’ve enjoyed making it!”

  • Young actors will be showing off their Model Behaviour at Westacre Theatre!

    Westacre Theatre are once again participating in the National Theatre Connections Festival as their youth theatre company presents Model Behaviour this Spring. 

    After just one full week of intensive rehearsals, 9 talented & dedicated young actors will present their contribution to the NT Connections Festival on Saturday 18 February at Westacre Theatre. NT Connections is an annual festival where the National Theatre commissions new plays specifically for young actors to perform. Taking place all round the country, companies of young performers stage their chosen play in both a ‘home’ venue and then tour to a partner venue. The young actors based at Westacre Theatre will be giving their home audiences the chance to catch their production of Model Behaviour by Jon Brittain, before they tour to The Garage in Norwich later in the year. 

  • Can't Pay? Won't Pay! coming to Westacre Theatre

    What is the hot topic of the day on everyone’s lips?   Well, the cost-of-living crisis and spiralling inflation is exactly what the next fast and furious farce at Westacre Theatre is all about.  And to reflect the theme of the story, there are lots of free tickets to be had – please read on to see how that might work for you… 

    A provocative production, Can’t Pay?  Won’t Pay! presents a pertinent political play depicting the plight of the working class trying to make ends meet.  Housewives feeling the full force of the economic problems are simply unable to afford the ever-rising prices in their local supermarket.

    A spontaneous protest brings a totally fresh meaning to ‘self-service’ groceries.  Two friends have nowhere to hide their ‘half-ton’ of ‘half-inched’ food from their husbands, and the police are about to come knocking.    

    To the great credit of the Nobel Prize-winning playwright Dario Fo, this really depressing background quickly blossoms into a comedy progressing at breakneck speed.  What happens to those pillaged goods is ludicrously absurd and delivers thoroughly entertaining theatre at its hilarious best.

  • News from Westacre Theatre - One million tiny plays about Britain

    If you write a play from pieces of conversation you overhear around the length and breadth of Britain, what perception of 21st century life might you produce?

    Using a whole showcase of sketches, Westacre Theatre will present a portrait of all kinds of people during the course of a couple of hours, capturing the state we’re in by revealing open windows into the young and old, happy and sad, rich and poor. 

    So, there aren’t actually a million tiny plays about Britain.  But there are several dozen vignettes and you’ll probably lose count of them.  Because each lasts for such a short period of time, you won’t have a chance to get bored.  But, come on, we all like to eavesdrop sometimes.  If you don’t like one, we’ve already flicked over to something else!   

    You’re promised an eye-opener that’s entirely entertaining and awfully addictive - peering pertinently at some pressing problems of our time like the housing crisis, a strained NHS, and loneliness in the elderly.

  • News from Westacre Theatre – Pippin The Musical opens August 18

    Staging a story that has worldwide appeal, Westacre Theatre presents Pippin The Musical created by multi-award winning Stephen Schwartz.  Young Pippin refuses to spend his life in the quest of ‘common things’ but aspiring instead to a greater fulfilment.  

    His search for how to reach out for the secret of true happiness and contentment leads him - through loyalty to his father - to discover the horrors of war.  Declining to participate in the victory celebrations, he is lured by temptations of the flesh.  Unsatisfied by those experiences, he follows the intrigues involved in political power.  Seen by some as a dark tale, it highlights the dangers of false appearances and empty promises.  

    The soul-searching Pippin dwells under the illusion that there has to be an absolutely perfect place and purpose for him in life.  His obsession for an ideal existence without any flaws promises to be self-destructive.       

  • News from Westacre Theatre - Hounds of the Baskervilles opens on July 28

    An absolute all-time classic mystery, Hound of the Baskervilles was a sell-out success from the very outset with all its readers rejoicing at the return of Sherlock Holmes.  Such was its massive triumph that this most famous exploit guaranteed the Holmes character was revived permanently.  

    Many of Conan Doyle’s ardent fans see this as being his best book out of the 60 gripping adventures with Holmes and his loyal friend Dr John Watson.  Over 130 years after Holmes first appeared in print, he amazingly continues to be the most popular fictional detective ever.  

    Westacre Theatre Company make the most of their new outdoors stage to bring the plot’s many twists and turns to life in this side-splitting spoof.  Retelling the entire plot in a single evening means you are in for fun-filled surreal show.  This fabulous and fast-paced piece features a local legend about a ghostly hound haunting Dartmoor.  In the dark of night, countless unsettling happenings unfold at Baskerville Hall.  You would be barking mad not to see this production.
