AGATHA CRUSTY AND THE VILLAGE HALL MURDERS

Thursday, 18th June 2020 - Saturday, 20th June 2020 - 7:30pm

TICKETS: Adults £8.00, Friends of the Regal £7.50, Students/ES40s £4.00

The Minehead Dramatic Society, now joined permanently by the Hole in the Wall Singers, return to the Regal with a comedy by Derek Webb (NOT the Minehead one).

Agatha Crusty is a crime novelist who is also pretty adept at solving crimes. Invited by her sister-in–law to spend a few days with her in the quiet village of Chortelby, it’s not long before she gets herself caught up in a series of murders which seem to be directed at members of the All Saints Village Hall Committee.  With plenty of suspects to choose from there are plenty of laughs as the murders begin to pile up and the incompetent D.I. Twigg struggles to unpick the mystery.

Full of wit and fun, this ingenious plot will not fail to keep people entertained as they try to work out for themselves ‘who dunnit’.

Strauss’s thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy. This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere. Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness in his first Strauss interpretation for The Royal Opera since 2002. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme (Bru?nnhilde in last Season’s Der Ring des Nibelungen) in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytämnestra.

Sung in German with English subtitles.  Approximate running time: about 2 hours.

With stalwarts Alan Lovell (lead vocals/lead guitar) and Pete Oakman (bass/vocals) the Swinging Blue Jeans have become synonymous with having a good time and the band work up a party atmosphere that will have everybody dancing and tapping their feet. The Swinging Blue Jeans stormed the charts worldwide with Hippy Hippy Shake which went all the way to number one in a number of countries.Other major hits for the band included Good Golly Miss Molly, You’re No Good, It’s Too Late Now and Don’t Make Me Over.

Today, the Swinging Blue Jeans delight audiences with these hits and also serve up a taste of Joe Brown and The Bruvvers as Pete Oakman was the leader of The Bruvvers and wrote Joe’s number one smash hit A Picture Of You.The other two hugely talented Swinging Blue Jeans band members are Jeff Bannister (keyboards/vocals) and Graham Hollingworth (drummer). Jeff was a former member of The John Barry Seven and Graham was a drummer for the great Chuck Berry on European tours for 15 years. Alan Lovell, Swinging Blue Jeans’ lead guitarist and vocalist, said: “We really enjoy performing at The Regal Theatre, Minehead. We will be performing a lot of rock and roll and hits from the sixties. Our shows have been going down very well all over the country and abroad. Things are going wonderfully. I have been into music for as long as I can remember. My father bought me a banjo so I started from there. I lived and breathed music. I left school when I was 15 and have been in bands ever since. “The 1960s was such an exciting time. The music was just great and was wonderfully written and the songs were recorded wonderfully. “We promise them (the audience at The Regal Theatre) a good night. We perform a lot of numbers so hopefully we will have them buzzing in their seats and dancing in the aisles,” he added.
