Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.

Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia. an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby (Flowers, Jericho), Tamara Lawrence (Undercover), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony) and Daniel Ezra (The Missing, Undercover).

The Upstage Players invites audiences to The Drowsy Chaperone presented at the Littleton Opera House on April 7,8,9,14,15 & 16. This truly nonstop high energy musical is full of laughs and gags and it knows just the right way to poke fun at musical theatre while paying the perfect homage to the genre. This show is the perfect night out with the family (PG), a great date night, a way to support local arts and, maybe more than anything else, an evening out of the house to laugh and forget about the craziness of life for a few hours.

Winner of five Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk awards including Outstanding Musical, this hilarious show-within-a-show features a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. The show pays homage to American musicals of the Jazz Age through the mind of one great fan and his well-worn LP of an old cast recording.

The fun begins with a die-hard musical comedy fan known simply as "Man in the Chair", who speaks directly to the audience about life, love and his favorite past time, live theatre. He then asks the audience to listen along with him as he plays them the well-worn cast album of his favorite (fictional) 1928 musical comedy called "The Drowsy Chaperone." The play begins to unfold in his very apartment as he comments occasionally on the plot, songs or even the fictional actors playing his favorite characters. It is a loving spoof of and homage to golden age musicals that practically vibrates with dozens of over-the-top characters and toe-tapping musical numbers. The Drowsy Chaperone has been called one of the wittiest, craziest shows ever to hit Broadway.

Chaperone is directed by Upstage Artistic Director, Andrew Lidestri, and choreography by Lidestri & Madalyn Sheehy. The cast will consist of some wonderful local talent including Dennis MacKay, Courtney Vashaw, Sam Brown, Fran Day, Grant Fuller, Wendy Muello, Peter Gair, Alyssa Comeau, Jess Griffiths, Owen Fogg, Madalyn Sheehy, Andrew Lidestri & Naomi Going. There is also a wonderful chorus of local talent rounding out the production. The sets and costumes will paint a picture of life in the roaring twenties and a full pit band orchestra will accompany these cast filling the hall with some excellent music and tunes you’ll find yourself humming long after the curtain falls.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London.

David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.

Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.
