We are thrilled to be welcoming back to the incredible talent that is Bogdan Vacarescu, accompanied on Piano by Julian Jacobson.

Bogdan is an international Romanian concert violinist living in London, who has toured internationally since his teens as a concerto soloist, chamber and orchestra musician. His recent solo album “Violin and Piano Thrillers” is at the top of the Album of the Year in Romania and was given a 5 star review in Musical Opinion.

He has performed in the Sydney Opera House, Athenaeum in Bucharest, Romanian National Radio Hall, The United Nations Concert Hall in New York, New Morning in Paris, Kings Place and Purcell Room in London.

In 2017 Bogdan founded “String Dimensions” – a chamber music ensemble which will give well-deserved play/air time to music rarely heard in concert programmes. He has made numerous recordings on Romanian National Radio and Television, BBC Radio and ABC Australia. Bogdan also recorded soundtracks for films and documentaries, most notably in collaboration with Oscar winners Stephen Warbeck and Gabriel Yared and for the BBC and ABC Television.

He toured the world leading the Balkan band “Paprika” and “Graffiti Classics”. He has collaborated with Nigel Kennedy, The Cat Empire, She’Koyokh and as a free-lancer with many successful ensembles in the UK.

M is for Manx Cat! @ Peel Centenary Centre
Mar 1 @ 1:00 pm – 1:45 pm

A limited opportunity to see this musical sensation with not one but EIGHT shows at FOUR
locations around the Island.

Come and join the fun in this musical adaptation of the well loved children’s book by local
author Gemma Hjerth and illustrated by Kim Gee. Join the adventure as two children are
taken on a whirlwind journey through music, song, dance, witty dialogue and fun facts all
about the Isle of Man. Will Granny ever finish their bedtime story and get them to sleep? Not
if these cheeky children have anything to do with it!

Produced and directed by Lisa Kreisky and Kristene Sutcliffe of Stage Door Entertainment
and proudly sponsored by the Isle of Man Arts Council, this exciting and educational show is
making it’s way around the Isle of Man in the first tour of it’s kind.

Lisa said “As parents ourselves, Krissy and I are fully aware that it’s not always easy to
travel with young kids, even around the Isle of Man. But we believe that this should not stop
them enjoying the magic of Theatre, so we decided to take it on the road. Bring it to them as
such” Kristene added “The show was so popular when it was first performed at The Studio Theatre
at part of Theatrefest 19 back in October. The one criticism we received was that the One
Night Only performance was not enough and too few people got to see it. So, we are
remedying that.”

Tickets are only £5 and can be booked through www.eventbrite.co.uk or all info is on the
Stage Door Entertainment IOM FaceBook page. Tickets are limited, due to the short run, so
please book early to avoid disappointment.

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.

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’

Cast

DAVID BENSON

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.

Apr 18 @ 8:00 pm – 10:15 pm

Making a very welcome return this April are the sensational Holy Moly & The Crackers!

Holy Moly & The Crackers make riotous party music for the masses. Their upcoming third album, ‘Take A Bite’ (released April 5th2019 on the band’s own Pink Lane Records), is concise, passionate take on folk, blues and indie rock. The sound of a band who have been searching and experimenting for several years; arriving at a place where they can say “this who we are and this is where we want to go”.

HM&TC are exciting, young, inspiring, cheeky, fun – but most of a collective of talented performers destined to make your evening one to remember. Their huge hit Cold Comfort Lane featured in the movie Oceans 8, and also in the TV advertising campaign for the Kia Sportage.

Not to be missed.

Narropera – ‘The Devil’s Marksman’ (Der Freischütz) @ 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!
