With this year’s Pantomime pretty much sold out, Chorley Amateur Dramatic & Operatic Society (CADOS) are already looking ahead to their new season of shows at Chorley Little Theatre

The season starts in February with Accidental Death of an Anarchist, a late-20th Century satire packed full of jokes and zaniness, as the slippery “Maniac” is interrogated by police and plots his escape. 

In April, the group stage Our Town A drama about every day life, it’s considered one of the great American plays. 

Ian Hislop writes June’s play, A Bunch of Amateurs a comedy in which a rural amdram group somehow hire a big Hollywood star to play their King Lear.

The story of seven women and one man at tap dance classes in a village hall going on to great things is the basis of the feelgood “Stepping Out” in September, and Alan Ayckbourn weaves reality and fantasy in Woman In Mind in October.

The season concludes with the pantomime Cinderella from the same award-winning team behind previous sell-out shows at the theatre.

CADOS Artistic Director Mark Jones says “this is a really strong season with, overall, a really positive vibe to it that we hope will connect with audiences. 2018 has been one of our most best-attended years ever so we’ll be building on that success.

Tickets for all the shows are on sale now via this website, Malcolms Musicland 01257 264362, Ebb & Flo Bookshop or whenever the theatre is open for shows.

Season Tickets are £49 per person for all six productions and available here (just let us know your preferred days and seats!)
