How do you fancy having a genuine authentic, fully-working 1980s jukebox in your house? If so, follow this link here.

This is one of a pair bought for our production of Two, and you may have seen it in the bar during that show. We've sold the other one, and need to find a home for this one. Sadly, lack of space at Chorley Little Theatre means we have to dispose of most of our props and as this was a bit costly we're looking to make some of the cost back. Any profits (like all profits here) go back towards the upkeep of the building and future productions.

The eBay auction lasts until 3.30pm on Sunday 7th July so get bidding!

Chorley Little Theatre groups were winners at the recent National Operatic & Dramatic Association (NODA) Awards in Blackpool recently. The NODA Awards honour the best of amdram across the whole of the North West and we're delighted that CADOS and Chorley Youth Theatre brought home 3 awards against tough competition.

CADOS Chairman Ian Robinson won the top award, Special Achievement, for his work running the theatre including the refurbishment work and adding extra events. Ian says he's "surprised and delighted" to win the award.

Katie Eccles won "Best Actress In A Supporting Role" for her performance as Madame Arcati in Blithe Spirit last year. This is the second time Katie has won this award, having previously won for Stepping Out in 2008.

Santa The Panto was nominated for "Best Panto" but sadly did not win.

Chorley Youth Theatre had four nominations at the Youth Awards for Peter Pan, including "Best Musical," "Best Actress In A Supporting Role" (Rosie Pemberton), and "Best Actor In A Supporting Role" (Alex Hardman). Hannah Smithers won for "Best Choreography"

Congratulations to all our winners.

We've added three new comedy shows to our line-up this morning. See the "Whats On" pages for full details.

Comedian Robin Ince returns to Chorley Little Theatre on Tuesday 14th May with his show The Importance of Being Interested.

In a whirlwind night of stand-up comedy, the the co-presenter (alongside Professor Brian Cox) of Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage uses humour to talk about some of his most favourite things in science.

Find out why we have eyebrows, why bald dogs have bad teeth, how heavy metal music makes pigs deaf and why spaghetti snaps into four pieces.

He’ll also stop off on the way to look at some of the more bizarre views of early science. For instance, is the ostrich really the offspring of the union of a gnat and a giraffe?

Promising “a night of spaghetti, barnacles and safe cracking.” it is also a loving look at Charles Darwin, Richard Feynman, Aristotle, the joy of picking shells up on the beach and the realisation that being self-conscious in a big universe is a darn good thing.

Suitable for ages 12 to 112, the show makes science fun and accessible while being very funny too. It starts at 7.30pm, with tickets priced £12 and £10 from Malcolm’s Musicland 01257 264362 or here
