We've got loads of great comedy coming in the next few months, and they're all telly regulars. Don't miss these:

MARK WATSON

A new tour for the award-winning stand-up who has appeared on Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, and the current series of Comedy Rocks on ITV1. A sell-out worldwide, we're delighted he's coming to Chorley Little Theatre on Sunday 5th June. Tickets are £15 and on sale now from Malcolm's Musicland or click here.

PAPPY'S

The fabulous sketch group have recently been on Dick & Dom's Funny Business on CBBC, Fast And Loose, Miranda on BBC2, and Robert's Web on Channel 4. Arriving on 19th April, the trio spare no expense to bring you the laughs in this credit-crunch themed show. Tickets are £12/£10 - click here more info

CHRIS RAMSEY

Chris is also in the current series of Comedy Rocks, and has supported Al Murray and Lee Mack on tour. He's been on Russell Howard's Good News and is appearing here on 11th June in a double bill with Edinburgh Newcomer Nominee Gareth Richards. Be sure to catch these rising stars! Tickets £12/£10 - click here for more info

SCOTTISH FALSETTO SOCK PUPPET THEATRE

The strangest (and funniest) double act you may ever see, the Socks have taken the Edinburgh Fringe by storm over 4 sell-out years and make a welcome return to Chorley on 14th May. Featuring songs, sketches and TV spoofs, the duo have been on The One Show, The Culture Show, MTV, and BBC Three's Comedy Shuffle. They've got loads of stuff on YouTube but have to be seen live. Tickets £8/£6 - see here.

Neville's Island tickets are now on sale at Malcolm's Musicland, as well as online. Sorry for the delay.

With the new system you can now get tickets to the rest of the CADOS season: An Inspector Calls, Oliver Twist

You can also purchase tickets to Pappy's, Chris Ramsey & Gareth Richards, and upcoming films A Single Man and Agora.

Plus pretty much everything else that was already on sale!

We're nearly out of tickets for Jenny Eclair's two nights here in March. There are a few odd seats available from Malcolm's, and there may be some on See Tickets and TicketMaster, but you'll have to go through them.

Other shows are selling well, so our advice is too book early if you don't want to miss a show.

Tickets for the rest of the CADOS season should be on sale from this weekend, but don't forget the Group Booking option which can be used right now for groups over 20 people.

Just a quick update on upcoming tickets:

PHIL COOL is now SOLD OUT. Wow!

JENNY ECLAIR has odd seats left, but none together. Call Malcolm's Musicland.

A TRIBUTE TO ELVIS is selling fast, so be quick if you want to make sure you get in. We've taken them off See Tickets so check with Malcolm's Musicland

GREG DAVIES is also selling fast - call Malcolm's, although there may be some left with See Tickets or Ticketmaster

Other shows are selling well, so buy now to make sure you don't miss out.

There have been some teething problems with the new ticket system, for which we apologise. Should be up-and-running this week but you can buy for NEVILLE'S ISLAND, AN INSPECTOR CALLS and OLIVER TWIST right now.

In the next 2 weeks we hope to announce the dates for some autumn shows including THE HOUGHTON WEAVERS, FACE VALUE, and THE SWING COMMANDERS.

Whew! Thanks for your support.

We're very grateful to Geoff Bowling of GP Asset Finance for his sponsorship of our Pantomime, Sleeping Beauty.

It was a big year for the Panto, with the largest audience for many years, and the show was well-received. The Panto is always an expensive show to produce and market, and we do our best to make affordable for audiences, so Geoff's generosity really helped get the show done.

Geoff was sponsoring us in memory of his dad, Frank, who was a regular member of CADOS in the 1960s and was known as "The Magician" because of the tricks he would do in shows such as The Old Time Music Hall or offstage.

Below is a photo of Geoff with the Sleeping Beauty cast plus one of Frank with an old CADOS cast that includes previous Chairman Roy Brooks, and current President Wyn Tootell. If anyone knows which play this is, please let us know!

We'd love to hear from you if you want to sponsor an upcoming show. Sponsors get their name in all publicity, an ad in the Programme, ads and flyers in the building, promotion on our screens and the best seats in the house. Just contact us.
