KEEPING YOU IN TOUCH - YOUR FREE MONTHLY NEWSPAPER DELIVERED DOOR-TO-DOOR FOR 31 YEARS HIGHAM HALL PRESENTS


We present two very special events at Higham Hall in the next month in a contrast to our courses: Shakespeare, outdoors - hoping for good weather and an evening of Jazz, inside.


C A D S COCKERMOUTH AMATEUR DRAMATICS SOCIETY


Here we are, officially into the second half of 2018. On the eve of CADS’ New Season launch, it feels like a good time to review CADS’ activities for 2017 -2018 seasons.


This time last year, CADS were auditioning for William Congreve’s, The Way of the World. When it came to the stage in November, at the Kirkgate and subsequently at the Rosehill Theatre, Nick Stanley’s production was a great success.


The annual panto in January was wackier and wilder than ever before and audiences cheered and booed the antics of the cast of Aladdin.


Jay Cundell-Walker’s innovative play, The Bench, came to the Kirkgate in March. Directed by Jill Roper, this production was a series of vignettes cleverly centred on a single public bench during the course of one average day.


SHAKESPEARE IN THE GARDEN: THE WINTER'S TALE Saturday 28th July 3.00pm in our Garden


SEASON REVIEW & PREVIEW The Gloucestershire-based Festival Players


Theatre Company are bringing Shakespeare's The Winter’s Tale to the front lawn of Higham Hall on the last Saturday in July. Presented in full costume, an all- male company presents one of Shakespeare’s most intriguing plays in a crystal-clear and fast-paced 2-hour production.


Music and songs have been specially written by folk star Johnny Coppin front man of cult Seventies folk-rock group Decameron.


Sparked by an obsessive envy, Leontes, King of Sicilia, sets in motion a train of events which affects two kingdoms and two generations. Jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, all culminate in an amazing revelation - and there is a BEAR!


Open 1.30pm for picnics. Doggies with well-behaved owners welcome!


Adults £13.50, school children £10.00 Telephone 017687 76276


JAZZ CONCERT with special guest Alan Barnes Saturday 4th August 8.00pm in our Lecture Room


Our annual diverting intimate evening of mainstream jazz led by David Black, with special guest the great Alan Barnes and players from our residential jazz summer school.


Tickets £7.00. Bar available and prior booking essential


Telephone 017687 76276


The Bench


The final production of the season was Laura Wade’s uplifting story of a woman with bone cancer who wanted to go HER way. The small cast under the direction of Len Wainright elicited from the audiences both laughter and quite a few tissues!


During the season, CADS were proud to offer members and non-members the opportunity to attend professionally-run workshops, the last of which, Stage Combat led by Toby Gaffney, took place on 14th July. Part-funded by Cumbria County Council, they were well subscribed. The day-long sessions included Pantomime Skills, Building a Character, Directing Skills, and Improvisation.


The season ended with CADS participation in Cockermouth Live on 30th June, when a capacity audience filled the hall to watch the U3A drama group and then CADS providing the event’s first ever dramatic inclusion.


Finally, the usual monthly play reading will begin again on Wednesday 5th September, as many people are away during August.
