Tom Dick and Harry FINALWSTom, Dick and Harry, The Playhouse Whitstable

Thursday, 23rd until Saturday, 25th May 2019

Tom, Dick and Harry written by playwrights Ray Cooney and his son Michael, is Theatrecraft's Spring Play and our entry into the Kent Drama Association's Full Length Play Festival 2019. 

Tom and his wife, Linda, are hoping to adopt a baby so everything must be perfect for the visit later that day of the lady from the adoption agency.

Enter Tom’s brothers – Dick and Harry – who have come to ‘help’. Their hearts are in the right place but their brains definitely aren’t! Before long, the house is awash with contraband cigarettes, suspicious-looking packages, an inquisitive police officer, and two stowaway refugees. And the lady from the adoption agency is due at any moment!

For an evening full of fast-paced farce and mayhem come and join us at The Playhouse Whitstable.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Jesus Christ Superstar, The Kings Hall Theatre, Herne Bay

Thursday, 1st August until Saturday, 3rd August 2019

Jesus Christ Superstar is the iconic Rock Opera, which reinvented musical theatre for the modern age.  It speaks to both theatre audiences and concert music fans alike.  Theatrecraft's production will feature a multi-talented cast of more than 40 actors, together with a five-piece live band.

With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, this global blockbuster has wowed audiences for over 40 years.  This is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of events.  It tells the story of the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.  

Filled with an exciting mix of 1970s rock, gospel, folk and funk themes, reflecting the music roots that defined a generation, the legendary score includes the songs Superstar, I Don't Know How To Love Him and Gethsemane.  This contemporary imagining of the biblical tale is a true global phenomenon.
