  • #Storytime

    Barnsley born Joanne Harris brings her Twittersphere storytelling to Penistone Art Week.
    Not so very long ago, Joanne joined a thing called Twitter. At the time, she wasn’t convinced that she would enjoy social networking. But, rather unexpectedly, she did; and made many friends along the way. Sometimes she would tell stories there, too, on the spur of the moment, making them up as she went along, under the hashtag: #Storytime. And because the phrase Once Upon a Time had already been taken, she always began her stories like this:
    There is a story the bees used to tell, which makes it hard to disbelieve.
    Rather to her surprise, she found that people enjoyed her #Storytime tales. Several were published in books and magazines, and some were expanded into stage performances: one became a short musical; two became mini-operas and the wroks now from this live show.
    So what is #Storytime Joanne tells us it’s a kind of musical storytelling show , combining original music, songs, images and stories as part of an exploration of different forms of narrative. Basically, Jackanory, with drums.

  • Daphne's Flight

    Twenty one years after their debut self titled album and one and only UK tour, the tour de force that is Daphne's flight is set to return to the stage in 2017.

    With a complete line-up of all five original members and a brand new studio album, this is the tour that fans have been waiting for since their first impromptu performance at Cambridge festival in 1995, when they took a packed club tent by storm and decided the time was right to join forces. Drawing on their collective wealth of talent and varied styles, each of them accomplished songwriters, musicians and renowned singers, it was the combination of all five voices, a powerhouse of harmonies, that left audiences breathless and brought them much critical acclaim.

    As well as the many original songs they each brought to the group, they breathed new life into classic contemporary covers from The Beach Boys to The Beatles, Bill Withers to Randy Newman and anyone who saw Daphne's Flight live will tell you their version of E.C. Ball's 'Father Adieu' was the stuff of musical legend!

    With as much energy and enthusiasm as they ever had, Daphne's are truly excited to be reuniting again and hope you will join them in the next leg of the flight for what promises to be a memorable year. Chocks away!

    Starring:Helen Watson, Melanie Harrold, Julie Matthews, Chris While, Christine Collister

  • Crooners

    This modern world does not always seem the place for men of style and vigour. Men with a penchant for sentiment, romance and charm. Men who own tap shoes.   Crooners follows the story of three very British gentlemen who exhume the characteristics of a crooner; suave, self-assured, stylish, as they defend the role of a crooner in our modern world. By the very same nature, it is not always obvious that these characteristics are adopted quite so well by the quintessentially British. Cue a splendiferous injection of British comedy. Tongue firmly in cheek. And an Outrageous injection of Big Band Swing.   This rip roaring comedy musical has been wowing audiences with its witty and exhilarating show full of satirical energy, hilarious one liners, laugh out loud silliness and superb musical numbers.   Featuring the outstanding and uncompromising live, on stage musicianship of the 9-piece band ‘The Mini Big Band’, these Crooners feature songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Matt Monro, Nat King Cole and Bobby Darin. Expect some Lady is a Tramp, Come Fly With Me, L.O.V.E, When You’re Smiling, Fly Me To The Moon, Beyond The Sea, Mac The Knife any many more…
