Ballet Theatre UK: Beauty and The Beast @ Arlington Arts
Dec 21 @ 7:30 pm

BalletBeauty and the Beast

Join Ballet Theatre UK with one of the most enchanting love stories of all time, “Beauty and the Beast”. Inspired by the original tale, this production tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village. When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her capture by the Beast, a grisly and fearsome monster. Little does she know that he is a Prince cursed by a magical Enchantress.

The only way the Beast may become human again is if he learns to love and be loved in return. The curse set by the Enchantress is bound by a magical rose. If the final petal falls all hope will be lost and he will remain a Beast forever. Their feelings grow ever deeper as the clock ticks and petals continue to fall – will they confess their love for one another before it is too late?

Set to a stunning classical score this production will showcase new choreography by Artistic Director, Christopher Moore, as well as feature new sets and costumes created especially for this production.

This is a rare opportunity to see a piece of theatre currently touring local schools and engage with your teenager on issues that could affect them.

Moscow Drug Club @ Arlington Arts
Feb 1 @ 8:00 pm

Moscow Drug ClubMoscow Drug Club

Moscow Drug Club is a curious musical place where certain elements of 1930s Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, Nuevo Tango & Gypsy Campfire meet, have a few to drink and stagger arm in arm into the darkness of some eastern European cobbled street on a mission to find the bar where Django Reinhardt & Tom Waits are having an after hours jam with the local ziganes.

Combining their original material with songs by the likes of Jaques Brel, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits & Bertolt Brecht, Moscow Drug Club provide an intoxicating & intimate musical experience.

You are cordially invited to share a wry smile with us as you enter the darkly comic world of Moscow Drug Club…this way, please mind the stairs!

Live/Wire: The AC/DC @ Arlington Arts
Feb 2 @ 8:00 pm

AC/DCLive/wire: The AC/DC Show

Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The hugely successful and unique six-man tribute to rock music’s greatest band AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls’ and over two hours of High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll in a show critically acclaimed for its closeness in look and sound to the real thing. Both Bon (Dave) and Brian (Podge) are present on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember and with the Rhythm section ‘locked in’ the freedom of the stage and the music is given to Simon as Angus Young who gives an uncanny performance with meticulous detail in appearance, energy and playing.

The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you are expected to join in ! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados!

We’d be hung, drawn and quartered if we didn’t play all the classics, Back in BlackRosieHighway to hell are all there, and the songs keep on coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time you are still standing…we salute you! Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE!

Red Sky Coven @ Arlington Arts
Feb 9 @ 8:00 pm

Red Sky CovenRed Sky Coven

Here they come once again – this unlikely trio of writers and performers known as Red Sky Coven. These are the ones who never did what they were expected to do, who dared to defy the entertainment business and never compromised. And above everything else, these are the ones who remained true friends through nearly 40 years of life’s adventures.
JUSTIN SULLIVAN – founder, writer and singer with the ultimate cult group New Model Army, responsible for selling millions of records and throwing a curve into thousands of lives.
JOOLZ – described as a “wild card on the literary scene, treading a line from spine-chilling performance-poet to Orange Prize-nominated novelist. She remains an endearingly forthright figure, and her performances are never less than mesmerising.”
REV HAMMER –  described in the British Press as a “maverick folk veteran”. His live shows combine humour, warmth and his beautiful songs (which are constantly being recorded by the likes of The Levellers, Edie Reader and Maddy Prior).
This is a special show unlike any other – a completely spontaneous blend of precision and chaos where the performers and audience become one family.
