Cinderella

Cinderella

The Sparkling Family Pantomime


Honiton Community Theatre Company return to The Beehive following Snow White; last year’s sell-out pantomime success. This year, Cinderella is the sparkling pantomime for all the family.


Cinderella lives with her evil stepmother and ugly step sisters, but dreams of a life free from their horrid clutches. When Prince Charming announces he’ll be holding a ball to find a suitable girl to marry, Cinderella signs up to attend along with her ugly sisters.


The evil stepmother forbids Cinderella from attending the ball, but she has a bit of help from her good friend Buttons and her Fairy Godmother who do their best to turn her fortunes around. Can Cinderella dance with the prince after all? Can Buttons save the day? Will the ugly sisters ever learn the meaning of true beauty?


Join us for rip-roaring routines, outrageous costumes, stunning sets and chart-topping hits. Cinderella is the perfect family adventure this February Half Term. Last year we sold out before the show even opened, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Nostalgic Cinema: An American in Paris (U)

Nostalgic Cinema: An American in Paris

Director: Vincente Minnelli

Writer: Alan Jay Lerner

Stars: Gene Kelly,  Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant, Georges Guétary, Nina Foch


1951 American musical film inspired by the 1928 orchestral composition An American in Paris by George Gershwin. Won 6 Oscars including Best Picture and Screenplay.


Three friends struggle to find work in Paris. Things become more complicated when two of them fall in love with the same woman. Featuring the wonderful I got Rhythm with Gene Kelly at his best.



Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.


TRIP community transport can provide a lift to and from the film within Honiton. Please book a place with them on 01404 46529.


Tickets £3.80 - includes tea and biscuits.

(includes an admin fee of 30p).

Steve Knightley: Roadworks

Steve Knightley: Roadworks

As a long-serving troubadour of the folk and acoustic music scene, master songwriter and storyteller Steve Knightley has spent much of his life on the road, collecting songs, stories, anecdotes and observations – with the odd disaster along the way.


Best known for his work with the award-winning acoustic roots group Show of Hands, Steve has performed in venues from the Albert Hole in Bristol to the Albert Hall in London. His impressive back catalogue of songs are modern classics, still filling the folk clubs and festival fields, and forever influencing the next generation of folk artists.


In 2019, Steve once again takes to England’s highways and byways to present ‘Roadworks’ – a show which builds on the success of his sell-out 2018 solo tour ‘Songs and Stories’. This is a stripped-back, one-man show that’s infused with wit, warmth and alchemy, beautifully illustrated by his trenchant songs of history, love and conscience. Anyone who’s ever wondered what it’s like to be a touring musician will love this rare insight into life on the road.


Steve says, “A life on the road certainly has its challenges, but I can’t say I’d do it differently if I had to start all over again. The format of ‘Songs and Stories’, and now ‘Roadworks’ allows me to share the stories I’ve collected over the years, along with plenty of observations along the way. It’s just me, a radio mic and a couple of guitars which is daunting and liberating in equal measures, and it’s enabled me to build elements into my shows which I’ve never been able to before. The reception from the 2018 tour was fantastic – it really seemed to strike a chord with people – so I’m looking forward to 2019’s tour.”



2018’s tour was a sell-out, so early booking is advisable.

The Favourite (15)

The Favourite

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Stars: Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, James Smith, Mark Gatiss


Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper.


When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.



Metro ★★★★★ "This is The Crown like you’ve never seen it before."


The Independent ★★★★★ "Consistently, relentlessly hilarious, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone are on top form in this deranged court comedy"


The Guardian ★★★★ "Yorgos Lanthimos brings scabrous energy to this dark comedy of 18th-century court intrigue and Colman excels herself."


Tickets: Adult £6.80, U16 £5.80

Colette (15)

Colette

Director: Wash Westmoreland

Stars: Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw, Eleanor Tomlinson


Unconventional country girl Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette has married a charismatic egomaniacal man of letters, 14 years her senior, known by the single name, Willy. Through his auspices, Colette is introduced into the artistic world of Paris where her creative appetite is sparked.


Ever quick to capitalise on talent, Willy permits Colette to write her novels only if she does so in his name. The phenomenal success of her Claudine series makes Willy a famous writer and Colette and Willy the first modern celebrity couple. Although they are the toast of the town, lack of recognition for her work begins to gnaw on Colette.


Set at the dawn of the modern age, COLETTE is the story of a woman who has been denied her voice by an overbearing man, and who goes to extraordinary lengths to find it; a battle of the sexes at the very beginning of the modern age, when seismic shifts were taking place in the roles of men and women.


More than a century after the publication of her first novel, Colette is still one of the best-selling, and beloved, French authors.

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band performs a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil’s treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.


The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Emily Slade, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.


The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song. Over a long period of time, it has evolved into a ‘Folk n Roll’ band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates.


“An evening with The Phil Beer Band is fast, frenetic, feel-good and leavened with a good helping of humour!” fRoots Magazine


“Always worth a trip to see musicians of this quality - but it is the repertoire that makes a Phil Beer Band gig extra special!” Folk Radio UK
