Snails for Starters by Kattreya Smith
Directed by Mark Easterfield

Meet Juliet (Christine Easterfield) and Robert (Stephen Smith) (no, not quite Romeo), a stereotypical middle-class couple, married for 35 years, and as IPads become the new newspapers their relationship trundles along. Enter Carl (David Morris) and his new young thing, Imogen (Kattreya Smith), and when Lola (Kat Maltby) turns up unexpectedly, everything comes into question: 'are you still attracted to me?' 'do you know what career Antonio Banderas originally wanted?' and 'Who is Lola anyway?'. All will be answered in Kattreya Scheurer-Smith's witty and entertaining comedy Snails For Starters. Please note: No snails will be harmed in this production.

Jack and the Beanstalk by Chris Shinn and Julie Petrucci
Directed by Holly Collas

Things are not at all well in Candlerise. As if a spate of robberies in nearby Larkford wasn't bad enough the robbers now seem to have moved closer to home. Constable Dunstable has his suspicions about who the culprits are but cannot catch the masters of disguise Grabbit and Leggit in the act. But help may be at hand in the form of a new Trainee Community Police Officer.

Meanwhile there is more bad news for the Candlerisers: there is to be a high speed rail link built which will pass right through the village. The mysterious Laurence Loada-Lolly has the plans and it's definitely going ahead, in fact straight through Dame Trott's cottage. Desperate measures are called for and it looks as if Buttercup the cow will have to go. This leads her son Jack and the Mayor's daughter Annie into an adventure that will change the lives of everyone.

Will they escape the giant's clutches? How can housekeeper Mrs Big help them? Why is an old lady so insistent on giving Jack a few beans? And where does a talking chicken fit into it all?

To find the answers and join in the fun come along to Waterbeach school between January 24 and 26 at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm

Open auditions will be held on Wednesday 17th October in the School Hall from 7:30pm. More details to follow.
