Dad’s Army Radio Show @ Peel Centenary Centre
Mar 7 @ 8:00 pm – 10:15 pm

Two actors, two microphones, over twenty-five characters – and lots of sound effects! The nation’s favourite sitcom returns new-minted in this highly-acclaimed production.

Perry and Croft’s classic BBC sitcom brought gloriously to life. Three episodes of the hugely popular radio series hilariously and lovingly enacted by two master performers. David Benson (Goodnight Sweetheart and One Man, Two Guvnors) and Jack Lane (Wisdom of a Fool and 7 Days) transport the audience right back to Walmington, working from original radio scripts – complete with sound effects, vintage music and all of Perry and Croft’s beloved characters and catchphrases. Highly acclaimed by critics and by audiences of all ages.

Featuring three episodes newly adapted for radio; ‘When You’ve Got To Go’, ‘My Brother and I’ and ‘Never Too Old’



Best-known for his performance as Noel Coward in the BBC’s classic war-time comedy Goodnight Sweetheart. David exploded onto the theatre scene with his first solo show Think No Evil of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams, in 1996. The show became an instant classic, winning praises from audiences, critics and Dames Maggie Smith and Barbara Windsor for the accuracy of his portrayal as the Carry On star. He followed this with a succession of solo shows on a wide variety of subjects, including Frankie Howerd, Dr. Johnson, the death of Diana Princess of Wales and an award-winning examination of the Lockerbie bombing.

David was a member of the National Theatre’s smash hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden, playing 1,015 performances of the show.

He appears in the film Blade Runner 2049 as a hologram of Liberace!

David was nominated for a BBC Audio Best Actor Award for his portrayal as Frankie Howerd in Frankie Takes a Trip. David describes Dad’s Army Radio Show as “the best idea I ever had” and inviting Jack Lane to perform it with him, “the second best idea I ever had!”


Jack founded Engine Shed Theatre Company in 2010. He soon adapted three episodes and two Christmas specials of the classic BBC sitcom Steptoe and Son receiving approval from the original writers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. In 2015 Jack premiered Wisdom of a Fool, a self-penned one-man play based on the life and career of comedy icon, Norman Widsom. The play opened to critical acclaim and was endorsed by Wisdom’s estate before embarking on an extensive tour.

Theatre includes: A Christmas Carol, Dad’s Army Radio Show (Edinburgh Festival/National Tour), Wisdom of a Fool (National Tour), The Ambassadress (workshop), Great Britain (ASM, Theatre Royal Haymarket), Gretel and Hansel, Cue for a Song, Steptoe & Son, From Turner To Houston, National Theatre Connections, Steptoe & Son Christmas Special, The Wizard of Oz, Aladdin, Peter Pan, Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens, Confusions, Annie, That’s Entertainment (The Capitol, Horsham) and as Max Bialystock in The Producers (The Hawth).

Narropera – ‘The Devil’s Marksman’ (Der Freischütz) – POSTPONED @ Peel Centenary Centre
May 23 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Dorothee Jansen, Sopran, Floriane Peycelon,Violine, Haydn Rawstron, Klavier; Kammermusiksaal Beethovenhaus Bonn . 19. Januar 2019


The CENTENARY CENTRE welcomes back The Narropera Trio  (Dorothee Jansen, Floriane Peycelon and Haydn Rawstron) with Weber’s ‘The Devil’s Marksman’ (Der Freischütz).
This is the Trio’s 102nd narropera performance. Dorothee Jansen has sung at La Scala, Milan, and in the opera houses of Munich, Paris, Geneva, Bologna and Cologne among many other prestigious locations. Der Freischütz is a totally absorbing, gothic story of good and evil, with some of the most beautiful music ever written for an opera, music that is highly enjoyable even on a first hearing.
Der Freischütz was first performed in Berlin in 1821 and was an instant sensation. Within ten years, it had stormed Europe, performed in nine different languages. By 1850, it had been produced in Sydney, Cape Town and Rio de Janeiro and in 1874 was first produced as far afield as New Zealand, in Wellington.
Carl Maria von Weber’s position in history is eternally guaranteed, as founder of German Romantic Opera. He was a first cousin of Mozart’s wife, and the wider Weber family was famously musical. Born in 1786, he died at the age of 40, in 1826, one year before Beethoven (56) and two years before Schubert (31). What the world missed out on, through the early deaths of these three composers, is unimaginable!

For the first time we see them step into the spotlight. Joining them on this musical journey is Musical Director, Mike Moran.

The show is the ultimate backstage pass into the world of Rock and Pop. Blending the history of British backing vocalists with revealing storytelling, featuring the songs the Unsung Singers have helped make hits.
