Comedy Club 4 Kids

Comedy Club 4 Kids

  • 11 September 2016 12-1pm, 2:30-3:30pm

Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children and their families… but without the rude bits!

It's just like a normal comedy club, but it's on in the day, kids are allowed in, and so there is a higher than usual chance of heckles like "why is that your face!?"

Rich Hall

Rich Hall - Live 2016

  • 17 September 2016 8-9:30pm

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. Renowned for his expertly crafted tirades, quick fire banter with audiences and delightful musical sequences, the award-winning Montana native saddles up and hitches his wagon to tour the British Isles once again. Perrier Award and Barry Award winner Hall has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, and he is no less harsh to his homeland.

Rich has also become well known for his television and radio work. Notable UK appearances include regular appearances on Very British Problems (Channel 4), Stand Up For The Week (Channel 4), QI (BBC1/2), Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The O2 and Have I Got News For You (BBC1).

The Emperor's New Clothes

The Emperor's New Clothes

  • 25 September 2016 3:30-4:30am, 1-2am

Following sell-out performances of The Elves and The Shoemaker, Stuff and Nonsense return to artsdepot with their latest production.

Inspired by the Muppets, Danny Kaye and good old family movies, this romp through a classic, eccentric tale tells the story of an Emperor who loves clothes more than anything. But there is a problem…Despite a wardrobe the size of Paris he's run out of outfits and it’s his birthday tomorrow! He hasn't got a stitch to wear!

When two 'designers' come to town with a promise to create him an outfit that's "never been seen before", our eccentric Emperor doesn't quite realise the spectacle he is about to make.

Populated with puppets, music and song, this inventive and energetic production is told in true Stuff and Nonsense style; with unending energy, great storytelling and, as always, a show for all the family.

“The rather super Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company has again hit pitch perfect” The Stage
on The Elves and The Shoemaker.

La Traviata

La Traviata

  • 29 September 2016 7:30-9:45pm

Following the success of Carmen and The Marriage of Figaro, Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose are back with their new English version of Verdi's La Traviata. The story of Violetta, a so-called ‘fallen woman’ who sacrifices her own happiness for the sake of her lover’s family and future, La Traviata has been thrilling audiences for generations.

Set in the 1920s prohibition era of speakeasies and bootlegging, with Violetta’s lover Alfredo, a passionate young man whose optimism has been shaken by time at the front in the first world war, Violetta’s protector ‘the Baron’, a gang boss, and Alfredo’s father, a crooked politician, this new production reveals the hypocrisy and heartache behind the glittering façade of parties.

"As much emotional truth as in any production I have seen" ★★★★ Evening Standard
New orchestration for piano, clarinet and cello by Harry Blake. New English version by Robin Norton-Hale.

Thrive

Thrive

  • 13 October 2016 6-7pm, 8-9pm

Research suggests that roughly half of the British population will experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. How do you think you would you cope if it happened to you?

Thrive is about three young people that didn't go looking for suffering, but suffering found them anyway. When Ollie, Ashleigh and Raph are thrown together by the sudden death of someone they knew, they find themselves wrestling with the turbulent emotions that painful events throw up. Join them on their journey and stand side by side with them as they recover, survive and maybe even Thrive.

This exciting production for young people is staged inside a visually stunning set that completely surrounds the audience. Using humour, movement and spoken word, Zest Theatre beautifully portrays the most challenging of emotions with courage and optimism. Thrive shows us what happens when three people, pushed to the edge of what they can bear, dig deep and learn to live on.

Developed in collaboration with Psychologists and inspired by true stories of young people, Thrive is a life-affirming look at finding hope in the face of adversity.

Operation Crucible

Operation Crucible

  • 20 October 2016 1:30-3pm, 7:30-9pm

Set against the backdrop of the Sheffield Blitz, Operation Crucible is the story of four ordinary men in extraordinary times.

On the 12 December 1940, more than six hundred people lost their lives in over seven hours of continuous bombing by Germany's Luftwaffe. Their objective? Wiping Sheffield’s world famous steel works - the heartland of Britain’s munitions manufacturing - clean off the map. The ruthless attack left Sheffield in ruins – destroying families, shattering a way of life, and changing the city forever.

At 11.44pm on the night of the raid, a single bomb reduced the Marples Hotel, which stood proudly in Fitzalan Square, from seven storeys to just fifteen feet of rubble. Only one of the ten compartments in the hotel’s cellars withstood the blast. Within it, trapped, were four men. This is their story, from beginning to end.
