Far From the Madding Crowd.

Far From the Madding Crowd.

BRISTOL OLD VIC THEATRE SCHOOL - West Country Tour


By Thomas Hardy

Adapted by Mark Healy

Directed by Paul Chesterton

Designed by Max Dorey


We are delighted to be welcoming back the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, their productions are always a firm favourite here at the Beehive and this will be no exception.


Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene. Having inherited her father’s farm, Bathsheba finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; the handsome and reckless Sergeant Troy; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and obsessive landowner. But are any of them a match for the independent and spirited Bathsheba?


This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love - as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

The Addams Family

The Addams Family

Book: Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice

Music and Lyrics: Andrew Lippa

Based on Characters created by Charles Addams


Honiton Community Theatre Company return to The Beehive this summer with the hilarious family musical – The Addams Family.

The Addams Family is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family. It features an original story, one that is every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. Wednesday confides in her father about her feelings and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the family on the fateful night that they host a dinner for Wednesday’s 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.

Happy Days Are Here Again

Happy Days Are Here Again

Join us for a very special Celebration to mark V.E. & V.J. Day


In 2020, we will celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War.


75 years ago, millions of people took to the streets to celebrate peace and to look forward to a brighter future. This uplifting, heartwarming show is full of patriotic nostalgia to celebrate that event.


Hand clapping, foot tapping songs, singalongs, songs that won the war, songs to make you smile and to touch your heart and a good old fashioned cockney knees up.


Featuring songs from Vera Lynn, Gracie Fields, the Andrews Sisters, Glenn Miller, Arthur Askey and many more, it is a real trip down memory lane.


We will pay tribute to the Fallen and acknowledge their sacrifice.


And of course there is a rousing, flag waving Last Night of The Proms Finale with timeless classics that you are actively encouraged to join in with.
