???? 4th – 8th April – Heathers The Musical – The Lyric, Theatre Royal, Plymouth (25 min drive from Crylla)

Following two smash-hit West End seasons, a record-breaking run at The Other Palace and winning the WhatsOnStage award for BEST NEW MUSICAL, Heathers The Musical, the black comedy rock musical based on the eponymous 1988 film, embark on a new national tour.

Westerberg High’s Veronica Sawyer is just another nobody dreaming of a better day.

???? 26th – 29th April – Waldo’s Circus of Magic & Terror – The Lyric, Theatre Royal, Plymouth (25 min drive from Crylla)

It’s 1933 Brandenburg and the Nazis are burning books and suspending civil rights. Many are desperate to escape, but for Waldo and his travelling circus of outcasts, acrobats and aerialists, ‘the show must go on’. As Hitler’s dictatorship strengthens and oppression grows, the daring humanity and courage of this circus troupe stay hidden beneath the painted-on glamour of Waldo’s big top.

Love, loyalty and risk-taking balance on the tightwire as the world outside becomes darker and more dangerous. This spectacular new circus theatre musical is informed by historical research and the experiences of real performers. It is written by Hattie Naylor (Ivan and the DogsThe Night Watch) and Jamie Beddard (MessiahThe Elephant Man) with an original score by Charles Hazlewood (Paraorchestra).

Waldo’s Circus of Magic & Terror is a large-scale collaboration between D/deaf, disabled, and non-disabled artists and creators and tours nationally in 2023. All performances are chilled, BSL interpreted, captioned and audio described.
