Barnsley born Joanne Harris brings her Twittersphere storytelling to Penistone Art Week.
Not so very long ago, Joanne joined a thing called Twitter. At the time, she wasn’t convinced that she would enjoy social networking. But, rather unexpectedly, she did; and made many friends along the way. Sometimes she would tell stories there, too, on the spur of the moment, making them up as she went along, under the hashtag: #Storytime. And because the phrase Once Upon a Time had already been taken, she always began her stories like this:
There is a story the bees used to tell, which makes it hard to disbelieve.
Rather to her surprise, she found that people enjoyed her #Storytime tales. Several were published in books and magazines, and some were expanded into stage performances: one became a short musical; two became mini-operas and the wroks now from this live show.
So what is #Storytime Joanne tells us it’s a kind of musical storytelling show , combining original music, songs, images and stories as part of an exploration of different forms of narrative. Basically, Jackanory, with drums.

Twenty one years after their debut self titled album and one and only UK tour, the tour de force that is Daphne's flight is set to return to the stage in 2017.

With a complete line-up of all five original members and a brand new studio album, this is the tour that fans have been waiting for since their first impromptu performance at Cambridge festival in 1995, when they took a packed club tent by storm and decided the time was right to join forces. Drawing on their collective wealth of talent and varied styles, each of them accomplished songwriters, musicians and renowned singers, it was the combination of all five voices, a powerhouse of harmonies, that left audiences breathless and brought them much critical acclaim.

As well as the many original songs they each brought to the group, they breathed new life into classic contemporary covers from The Beach Boys to The Beatles, Bill Withers to Randy Newman and anyone who saw Daphne's Flight live will tell you their version of E.C. Ball's 'Father Adieu' was the stuff of musical legend!

With as much energy and enthusiasm as they ever had, Daphne's are truly excited to be reuniting again and hope you will join them in the next leg of the flight for what promises to be a memorable year. Chocks away!

Robert Downey Jr. electrifies one of literature's most enduring characters in a vivid re-imagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle: After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures. The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Dunkirk's Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla(Oscar winner Rami Malek). an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Oscar winner Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena, Bumblebee) and a headstrong parrot (Oscar winner Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle's most trusted adviser and confidante.

The hugely romantic Cyrano de Bergerac is given a Caledonian heart in a new production of Edwin Morgan’s Glaswegian-Scots translation by Citizens Theatre Artistic Director Dominic Hill.
The brash and flamboyant Cyrano’s low self-image prevents him from revealing his love for Roxane. He lends his poetic skills instead to the outwardly handsome Christian, who wins Roxane’s heart through his passionate ghost-written letters. Throughout his adventurous life, Cyrano continues to put quill to parchment, risking his life in the process, to express his true feelings.
An epic ensemble of actors and musicians use Morgan’s rich Scots verse to create a fresh take on the enduringly popular period piece, first seen in the classic production by Communicado 25 years ago. Rostand’s original story was most famously given the Hollywood treatment in the Steve Martin comedy, Roxanne.
Brian Ferguson (Black Watch, Anything That Gives Off Light) plays the irresistible Cyrano de Bergerac, with breathtaking set design by Tom Piper and costume design from the iconic British fashion designer Pam Hogg.
A vivid and completely joyous event, Cyrano de Bergerac will be a celebration of theatre itself, and is presented by the Citizens Theatre at Tramway, The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and touring to Eden Court Theatre, Inverness.
