Coming to Preston in 2023...

Get ready for our 2023 production as something slightly fuzzy hits the stage of Preston Playhouse in July. Avenue Q features the naughtiest puppets in town, brought hilariously to life by an ensemble cast of performers. The show is a Tony Award-winning musical about growing up, dreaming big, and finding your purpose in life. “It’s not all preachy, but it’s perceptive as hell.”
The zany, unconventional, laugh-out-loud musical has been a hit around the world and now you get the chance to be part of the phenomenon. We will be casting the show at the beginning of 2023 and all parts are up for grabs. Rehearsals take place on Mondays and Thursdays and some Sundays and the show dates are 11th-15th July.
Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Soon discovering that the only neighbourhood in his price range is Avenue Q, he finds himself moving in with some truly quirky characters. There’s Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod, an Internet ‘sexpert’ called Trekkie Monster and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster. And would you believe the building’s superintendent is Gary Coleman?! Featuring hysterically funny songs including The Internet is for Porn and Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist, Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart.
Full details will be available at the welcome event on Monday 16th January 2023, 7:30pm at our HQ in Fulwood – where we will share more details of the show and the auditions. Mark the date in your diary, come on down and join us on Avenue Q!

A little bit of Yorkshire is coming to Lancashire in June 2022

Preston Musical Comedy Society are delighted to announce their 2022 production of this amazing musical from the pens of Tim Firth and Gary Barlow.

The death of a much loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a women’s institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.

The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record breaking movie, stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term “craughing”  – the act of crying and laughing at the same time.

With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.

There will be further details at the social event on July 19th with a full welcome evening later in the year

It is time to dust off your favourite costume, slap on the greasepaint and step out that frontdoor once more to do something….stagey!  We have picked Monday 19th July to get together at Preston Musical Comedy HQ to have a brew (hot and cold beverages are all covered by “brew”) from 7.30pm.

Subject to the Covid Roadmap following its set route we will be able to gather in person, share our experiences, laugh a little, cry a little then sit down as we let you know our plans.

We are bringing a little bit of Yorkshire to Lancashire as we tell you about our 2022 production of “Calendar Girls – The Musical” by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow.  It is set for June 2022 at Preston Playhouse Theatre with multiple roles and a score you won’t stop singing.

Following on from that at 8.30pm it is Panto Welcome Night.  Come along and find out all about the show, meet the creatives and find out all the roles available.  You will find audition times and pieces and have a chance to discuss everything required.  This traditional family pantomime is on at the Playhouse Theatre this December and is our first full production following Lockdown.  It is definitely time to get up and shine and what better way than a  full on pantomime.

So the date is 19th July and the venue is Preston Musical Comedy Society HQ, Unit 1 Pittman Court, Pittman Way, Fulwood, Preston, PR2 9ZG
