So there is still time to get your friends and family together for an evening of musical magic.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Bacharach & David Songbook.
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the most gorgeously beautiful of them all?…”
We are delighted to confirm that our 2017 pantomime will be Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, written by our good friend Ben Crocker, and seeing the return of Steve Oakes as Director and Producer.
This year's show will be a true CAST family affair involving both members of the adult group and youth Academy.
Join Snow White on an enthralling adventure where good meets evil! Featuring, among others, the wicked Queen Caligula and her henchmen, two fairies, the loveable Dame Dolly Dumpling and her happy go lucky son, Danny, a dashing Prince, plus seven vertically challenged friends!
Further details on the performance dates and the rest of the production team will be announced over the next few weeks, with box office opening immediately after our spring production for advanced group bookings.
The spring will see a return of traditional British Farce to the Colnbrook stage, with the Ray Cooney & John Chapman's classic Move Over Mrs Markham being staged between 29ty March and 1st April.
Our summer show will be a musical trip down memory lane, directed by Steve Parkyn and featuring the songs of Bacharach & David. Join us as we bring classics such as Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head, What the World Needs Now, Make it Easy on Yourself, Magic Moments, Close to YOU and many more to life on the cabaret stage.
Finally our pre-Christmas slot will see the the panto Snow White hit the Colnbrook stage for the first time in 13 years.

2016 has already seen CAST and The Academy perform at both Wraysbury Fair and Langley Carnival.
At Wraysbury The Academy performed Welcome to the 60s and When I Grow Up from their forthcoming revue show, with the older CAST members joining them on stage for the 70s Disco themed Play that Funky Music and Footloose.
At Langley, the above was repeated, along with the first ever staging of CAST's Animalympics, with 12 members donning panto animal costumes to compete over obstacles in the main arena. A fun afternoon which certainly gained the group some new fans!
