Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theatre that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theatre above all and will do anything to preserve it.

Facing the crumbling of his life's ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.

Duration: 1hr 50 mins

Tickets: £5.50 under 16's, £8.25 Adult; £7.25 Friends

Picture of National Theatre Live: Peter Pan


Sat 10th Jun 14:00

All children, except one, grow up…

Captured in front of a live audience at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas this summer.

When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.

A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre. 

★★★★★  ‘Spellbindingly imaginative. A dazzling production.’ Radio Times

Duration: 2hrs 50mins

Tickets: £17.50

Following the success of last summer’s Much Ado About Nothing, critically acclaimed MadCap Theatre Productions return to Cranleigh with another open air comedy in the rectors garden of St Nicolas Church.

Dressed as a man, the exiled Rosalind is ready to begin a new life after escaping her foes in the dead of night. But, when she meets the love-sick Orlando, her disguise soon becomes more of a curse than a blessing.

Shakespeare is always made understandable and enjoyable with MadCap’s fun, fast-paced and entertaining staging that combines comedy, music, dance and physicality.

Bring some chairs and a picnic as this will be an evening not to be missed!

This event is kindly sponsored by Informed Choice.
