City Of Dreams - Friday

This July, Ranger Productions will be celebrating 50 years of shows at the Mowlem Theatre, Swanage with their production 'City of Dreams'. Over the years the school has delighted audiences with full scale ballets and performances showcasing all aspects of dance and musical theatre.

This anniversary production is the brainchild of Caroline McCrory, daughter of June Ranger. Act 1 is an original ballet set in 1930s Ireland and New York and tells the story of three young brothers searching for a better life, but who become embroiled in the unsavoury world of The Mob with unexpected consequences. Act 2 stays in New York with numbers from the musicals 'Matilda', 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', 'The Greatest Showman' and more promising something for everyone. With a cast of over 80 pupils past and present and state-of-the-art visual effects tickets are set to sell quickly. Parental guidance advised.

(City of Dreams - Advisory Notice: Amid the setting of 1930s' New York, a replica gun with an audible bang will be fired in the final scene of Act 1. This is a brief act of violence which we are advising may be unsuitable for young children. Parents are asked to use their discretion before purchasing tickets.)

Jethro… The Count Of Cornwall

Following 60 sold out shows last year, The Count of Cornwall is back again with his unique style of comedy. Jethro will probably be remembered for years to come with so many people loving this Hilarious country style. He is considered by many as the greatest comedy story teller that ever lived. Having produced 20 DVD's over the years there are some old favourites and many new tales told in a way only a count could. Over 4 million DVD sales pay testimony to the size and dedication of his army of followers, and their love of the unpredictable, irreverent twaddle that reduces his audience to tears of laughter night after unforgettable night. Every once in a while there comes along a true comedy genius, someone who rapidly gains cult status with the British public. Such is the case with Jethro! Armed with nothing more than a microphone and delivered to you in a warm Cornish accent, Jethro has the rare ability to paint hilarious pictures in the mind of his audience. Jethro is the stage name of Cornish stand-up comedian Geoffrey Rowe. Based in Lewdown in Devon. Jethro was born in March 1948 in St Buryan, a village in west Cornwall. After leaving school, Jethro was apprenticed as a carpenter and then worked as a timber man in a tin mine. At the age of eighteen he joined the St. Just and District Operatic Society and, in addition to his bass voice, locals found he had a talent for making an audience laugh. He began visiting the pubs of Cornwall to sing and joke and was quickly hailed as Cornwall's top comic.
