On a shoestring
Based on Moliere’s play of the same name, Roger McGough’s energetic and witty interpretation sees the action moved from the seventeenth century to 1950s Paris. Can Orgon’s family make him see what a predatory hypocrite his adored house-guest Tartuffe really is – before it’s too late? Presented by Stamford Shoestring Theatre.

Super sounds
A much-loved Peterborough institution, the Peterborough Music Festival has existed in one form or another since 1935.

A terrible night out…
It’s been terrifying and entertaining audiences in equal measure for so long now the Circus of Horrors has become something of an institution, even… (whisper it) a national treasure? Smashing your childhood to smithereens with this latest production, Alice in Horrorland, the Circus continues to serve up what it does best: thrills, spills, and plenty of gore.

What a way to make a living!
Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society return with yet another musical super-show: Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5, based on the film of the same name and packed to the hilt with wonderful Parton-penned hits. Fully expect to be dancing in the aisles by the end, if not before.
