Shows for 2017
CRIME ON GOAT ISLAND is a fascinating
play which can be viewed on more than one level.
On the surface it is a haunting, psychological thriller.
Three women live alone in self-imposed exile. Until a wandering libertine appears and convinces them that ''a little sin'' would be good for them.
Dig a little deeper and you find yourself in the self-imposed purgatory of Goat Island.
How did they get there?
And who is the young man?
Is he an Angel or is he the Devil?
But what is the Crime?

Attempted seduction, thwarted love, celebrity marital
discord, a family feud.
The column inches of the popular press gossip pages have their readers drooling at the salacious scandal. The tabloid press in 2017 ? No, it’s the late eighteenth century and George the third is on the throne.
When the older bachelor Sir Peter Teazle takes a younger wife the backbiting society gossips led by Lady Sneerwell have a field day; but Lady Sneerwell also has designs on one of two brothers and uses her influence on one to thwart a love match for the other. The unexpected appearance of their uncle, who holds the key to their financial security, involves disguises and deceptions that confirm the true nature of the young men’s characters at the same time that an attempted seduction of Lady Teazle is exposed. But which brother is the guilty party and how will matters be resolved?
Almost two hundred and forty years after its first production The School for Scandal remains as fresh and relevant to modern society as it was when it opened at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane on 8th May 1777. A contemporary critic wrote “The School for Scandal is…perhaps the most finished and faultless comedy which we have. People all around are exclaiming ‘Surely it is impossible for anything to be cleverer’. Besides the wit and ingenuity of this play there is a genial spirit of frankness and generosity about it that relieves the heart as well as clears the lungs”.
The play’s enduring qualities and success were acknowledged in 21st Century Britain when Michael Billington, drama critic for The Guardian, selected it to appear in his compendium “The 101 Greatest Plays”. The critique of Sheridan’s masterpiece refers to it as “timeless comedy…beautifully plotted…writing of that texture induces a delight bordering on ecstasy”.
The School for Scandal is, not without reason, the most performed comedy in the history of British Theatre and promises to delight even the most sophisticated of modern audiences.
Camp Theatre was founded in 1994. A not for profit Community
Theatre Company, it has now presented over fifty productions and raised
in excess of £50,000 for a variety of local, national and international
charities. Previous touring productions include A Man For All Seasons,
Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, The Lying Kind, The Browning Version,
Hay Fever, When We Are Married, In The Cub and Secrets.

There's much more to being the Best Santana Tribute in the World…

• Santana and his eponymous band have been blending Mexican
passion with rock energy since the 1960s: Oye Santana captures that heady
blend with uncanny feeling. Yes, they faultlessly reproduced the music;
they are accomplished musicians in their own rights. But more than that,
they conjured up the atmosphere, the sheer hedonistic abandon to rhythm
that lifts Santana from music to passionate maelstrom. This was no pale
'photo copy' of another band …they build a stunning performance.

• You came west and were the best! The comments made
by those who saw you on Saturday couldn't praise the gig enough. The professionalism
of the band stood out in all aspects of the gig, from the sound check
right through to the encore. And, may we say, what a nice bunch of guys.
It's true what they say: “Close your eyes and you can't tell the difference”
– Oye Santana clearly are one of the Best Tribute Bands Around!
Andy Percy, Anjen Events, Cornwall
• Santana’s legacy is in the best possible hands.

Singer/songwriter Chris began his recording career in 1992 with the critically acclaimed album ‘Only Human’ and achieved Record Of The Week on Radio 2 with his song ‘We Were Children’. He has released four albums of original songs and legendary DJ ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris referred to him as one of his favourite artists of the year.
In 2010 Chris began touring with his solo show ‘The Music of John Denver’ celebrating the life and work of the legendary singer/songwriter in his own unique way. He has recorded several radio specials for the BBC and toured extensively in the North of England for the last three years. Chris was honoured to be asked to perform in Aspen, Colorado in October 2012 for the annual celebrations of John Denver's life and work.
He performed with Steve Weisberg, John Denver's lead guitar player on all his platinum albums during the 70's. Chris and Steve performed several concerts together, their final performance in Aspen being an unforgetable show at Windstar - Denver's eco awareness centre in the heart of the rocky mountains. John Denver's longtime friend Peter Plantec said after Chris and Steve's concert at Aspen Community Church, 'I wasn't watching John tonight but all of the magic was there.'
Chris first brought his show to The Lane Theatre, Newquay last year and is very much looking forward to performing to a new audience..
Join us for all of the favourite hits including ‘Annie’s
Song’, ‘Leaving On A Jet Plane’, Take Me Home Country Roads, ‘Sunshine

The Producers Blues Band
One of the most exciting and stylish bands on the circuit, The Producers are among the leaders of the current Blues phenomenon topped by Joe Bonamassa and John Mayer.
Well they are back!
After two excellent visits to the Lane theatre last year they decided that a return visit was an absolute must in this year's calendar. The band are all agreed that the Lane Theatre that this is one of the best small theatre venues they have played at, the welcome by the staff and the audience having being a joy! and are really looking forward to their return!
As to the The Producers they are really something special,
playing the freshest live blues in Britain today. Concerned with feel
and attitude rather than slavishly copying ‘hand me down’ American music,
The Producers move effortlessly between their own well crafted material and seriously reinvigorated classics stamped with their own characteristic identity.
After celebrating their barnstorming 25th anniversary tour last year The Producers have embarked on another nationwide tour across the country visiting those venues they missed and revisiting many of last years including the Lane Theatre, building on their already massive audience at sell-out club dates and continuing to develop their impressive reputation that no one can ignore.
Being invited to play prestigious Festival slots is always a sign of a band on its way, however receiving invitations to open concerts for luminaries like John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Dr John, Peter Green and Robert Cray has quickly led to The Producers becoming a major attraction in their own right. With thirteen acclaimed albums to their credit, air play and live appearances across Europe, the States, the Bahamas, Australia and New Zealand, The Producers are playing headline dates and rightfully assuming a prominent position on blues awards podiums.
Dave Saunders and Harry Skinner formed The Producers in 1990. They went on to be one the most popular blues outfit in the country at that time. Winners of the ‘Blues Band of the Year’ award 4 times, releasing 13 CD albums to date, one of which ‘Ain’t No Love in the World’ was nominated for the ‘Best Blues Album’ award..
The Producers highly acclaimed CD and Vinyl record ‘London Blues’ released in 2011 created significant excitement within the blues community and the music industry in general. The album featured guests Paul Beavis (Go West, Low Riders) Andy Fairweather Low (Eric Clapton, Roger Waters) Ben Waters and 5 times blues award winner Paul Lamb on Piano and Harmonica respectively with all the material being self penned originals. .
Their last album "25 Years" was, released to coincide with the 25 years tour and reflects the values of their first album (Escape from Muswell Hill 1992) It features 4 new original songs and a selection of old favourites often performed on stage but never before recorded. Thus connecting the band to both its past and its present.
The band regularly sell out venues around the country, headlining many festivals including Colne, Burnley, Stanley Blues, Dublin Templebar
Tickets £14 in advance / £15 on the door
