9 -5 The Musical
tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the girls manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

I know this is playing in London at the moment   Dolly  Parton is behind  it.  I do not know if it is the same production coming to MK but think it is quite possible as I know it does not have that many weeks to run in London.

Two Trains Running  by August Wilson
The seventh play in August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle.  There is a new President in the White House and racial tensions are high. Two Trains Running takes place in a restaurant run by a man named Memphis Lee. It is the 1960s, and the neighborhood is about to go through major economic development and gentrification. While we see a lot of the same themes as in August’s earlier works (surrounding race, oppression, identity), we see how those themes are filtered through a more modern world that is in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement. Malcolm X has just been killed, and the younger characters in the play, namely Sterling and Risa, are searching for who they are and where they fit in. Memphis has given up on trying to save his business from being taken by the government, but insists on getting the money he deserves. The colorful cast of African-American characters includes an old man who has gone crazy and can only say two phrases, a man who runs numbers (i.e. the lottery) for the people of the town, a young woman who cut up her legs to make them ugly so men would leave her alone, and a young man who recently got out of the penitentiary and just wants some money and a woman. A few of the characters from Wilson’s other plays are a part of this world, and hearing their names mentioned reconnects us to the roots of what it means and has meant to be an African-American in America.

£16.80.  For this price I will need to sell 10 tickets Must pay by Summer social!!

Kinky Boots
Inspired by true events, this joyous story of Brit grit to high-heeled hit was brought to life on the big screen in 2005, with Oscar® nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor as the dazzling Lola, before being transformed into a hit Broadway musical. With direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray) and a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles) this striking musical proudly proves that sometimes the best way to fit in is to stand out!
With songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this fabulous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.
Kinky Boots takes you from the factory floor to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price, is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the shoe factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

English National Ballet – Le Corsaire

These tickets are not as good as I had hoped for, even though I rang very shortly after they had gone on sale.  They are in the circle and cost £17.00
ENB are the only company with this ballet in their repertoire.  I personally love their annual visit.  We would be guaranteed wonderful dancing, costumes and amazing music with a huge orchestra.
