Swings The Thing Presents Rhapsody In Blue

Swings The Thing Presents Rhapsody In Blue

An all Gershwin affair and surely our most ambitious project to date.  The programme includes no less than 3 versions of his masterpiece “Rhapsody in Blue”.  Glenn Miller’s 1943 Hit and Gordon Goodwin’s more recent version will understandably be eclipsed by the original 1924 version written for the Paul Whiteman Band and featuring Gershwin himself as the piano soloist.  Tonight we will be joined by the multi-talented Lincoln Noel on piano and our very own Paul Whiteman, Robin Norman as guest conductor.

Rapunzel- The Pantomime

Rapunzel- The Pantomime

Prince Frederick is enjoying the Royal high life until his father, King Geoffrey decides it is time for the juvenile heir to the throne to find his 'true self'. With a slightly over zealous spell from the novice Fairy Flora, the King finds the strength to discipline his son but then banishes him from the Kingdom to explore the world until he is worthy to return (and be able to put on his own underpants!). Despite Queen Gertrude's protests, Frederick is sent away with his former Valet, Frankie as his only companion (oh no he isn't, oh yes he is!). The newly unemployed Frankie seeks support from his mother Dame Beatrix Bouffant, a poor but glamorous hairdresser, who distracts the Captain of the Guard long enough for the Prince and Frankie to escape the Village and flee into the forest. For the last 16 years, Witch Gothel (booooooo!) has imprisoned a stolen baby, Rapunzel, in a tower in the forest. Masquerading as her grandmother, Gothel has caught Rapunzel's magical tears to keep herself young, whilst Rapunzel (and her lengthy locks) have grown into a beautiful, intelligent woman who longs to see the world. Upon hearing Rapunzel's alluring singing in the forest, the arrogant Prince and his trusty valet Frankie thwart the Witch and rescue our heroine from the tower (with a little help from some trusted friends) after the Witch's bungling henchmen Curly & Bob mistakenly disclose its location. Rapunzel escapes to begin a new life in the village, but with Gothel (she's behind you!) and her idiots in hot pursuit, will the Prince win his father's affections and return to the palace proving his worth? Will our unexpected hero and his friends keep Rapunzel and her extensive tresses safe from Witch Gothel and her evil plans in the tower and marry his love?

 

Please join the multi award winning Kettering Youth Theatre Group for 'Rapunzel, the Pantomime', a truly magical mystical musical pantomime. Featuring a large energetic chorus, dazzling principals, stupendous singing, dynamic dancing, toe-tastic tapping, beautiful ballet, amazing acting, hysterical humour and magnificent costumes. This Christmas, support this talented cast of local young people in their 41st production, in what promises to be a truly fantastic and memorable show.

Disney Peter Pan Jr

Disney Peter Pan Jr

Following the success of last years Little Mermaid Jr, the United Theatre Group proudly present Peter Pan JR.


This is the story of the boy who wouldn’t grow up and the girl who has to. After finding his shadow in the Darling family nursery, Peter teaches Wendy, Michael and John how to fly and sweeps them off to Never Land, where they meet Lost Boys, mermaids, indians and, of course, pirates.  If the children are ever to return home, Peter must defeat Captain Hook with the help of Tinker Bell and her fairy friends. Peter Pan JR. features classic songs from the 1953 film such as, “You Can Fly!,” “Following the Leader” and “The Second Star to the Right” as well as songs from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and the 2008 Disney film Tinker Bell.

This child friendly, 60-minute musical, performed by our talented young cast, is based on the play by J.M. Barrie and the 1953 Disney film.  Please come and join us on a magical journey to Neverland.


For over 40 years the United Theatre Group have provided theatre opportunities for local young people.  Using theatre workshops, rehearsals and performance, we encourage young people to flourish in all aspects of their lives.  Run by experienced volunteers we appreciate your support to enable us to do this.

Swings The Thing Presents The Glenn Miller Story

Swings The Thing Presents The Glenn Miller Story

Glenn Miller was without doubt the most successful big band leader of all time.  We tell his story in music, starting with his 1939 Carnegie Hall Concert. Then comes what we refer to as the lucrative years when every other record in the Juke Box was a Glenn Miller hit.  We play the music he performed during the ASCAP ban when even his signature tune had to be changed.  We bring you highlights from his movies, Sun Valley Serenade and Orchestra Wives.  Finally we will play a selection of music by the AAF Orchestra which as you are no doubt aware was based nearby in Milton Ernest.
