Terry Pratchett’s : “Guards! Guards!”

Guards! Guards!

Adapted by Stephen Briggs

The infamous city of Ankh-Morpork is under threat from a 60-foot fire-breathing dragon, summoned by a secret society of malcontented tradesmen.

Defending Ankh-Morpork against this threat is the entire, underpaid, undervalued City Night Watch – a drunken and world-weary Captain, a cowardly Sergeant, a small opportunistic Corporal of dubious parentage…and their newest recruit, Lance Constable Carrot.

Whether you are new to Pratchett or a long time fan, this production is not to be missed!

Now for the 50th anniversary of the band’s international breakthrough album “Autobahn”, music technology expert Mark Jenkins (“Tubular Bells for the Moog Synthesizer”, ”Dark Side of the Moon for the Moog Synthesizer”) presents a striking live solo performance of the band’s hits, music they never play, and music they might have played in some alternate future reality of computer graphics, vocoder vocals and artificial intelligence imagery…

THE SNAKE DAVIS BAND

FRIDAY, 12th APRIL, 2024 – 7.30pm

The Snake Davis Band

A class act, making its only appearance in Cornwall!

 from soul through pop to jazz and world music, original material and classic sax pieces such as Gerry Rafferty’s ‘Baker Street’ and Paul Simon’s ‘Still Crazy After All These Years’.

Snake Davis by Steve Clark

A Million Love Songs Later, Snake Davis and his band return to the St Austell Arts Centre for an evening of quality music, played by some of the best musicians in the business.

Famous for writing and playing the instantly recognisable saxophone intro on Take That’s “A Million Love Songs”, Snake Davis is one of the most in-demand rock soul and jazz sax players in the world, widely known for his solos on tracks such as Lisa Stansfield’s “Change”, M-Peoples “Search For A Hero” and “Moving On Up”.

He has played and recorded with artists ranging from James Brown to Tina Turner to Paul McCartney, The Eurythmics to Amy Winehouse. Snake played on the last Eurythmics world tour, and tours Japan often with their rock hero Eikichi Yazawa.

His greatest love however is to play intimate venues as himself, his own music choice with his favourite musicians. Playing the saxophone family as well as flutes, whistles and the ancient Japanese wind instrument, the Shakuhachi, and singing, it is his total passion and commitment to every note that draws people in.

The Snake Davis Band has something for everybody, from floaty to dance-able, from soul through pop to jazz and world music, original material and classic sax pieces such as Gerry Rafferty’s ‘Baker Street’ and Paul Simon’s ‘Still Crazy After All These Years’.

The tight 4-piece band has Snake on saxes, vocals and woodwinds and is completed by keyboards, Bass guitar and Drums

Expect infectious grooves and passionate melodies. The Snake Davis Band plays a mix of original material, their own interpretations of some timeless soul jazz and pop pieces and selections from the ‘Classic Sax Solos’ repertoire.

Little Wander in association with PBJ Management present…

Mike Wozniak: Zusa

Ever wondered how Mike’s Great-Aunt Zusa made it from Poland to Luton with a war nipping at her heels?

Here’s your chance to find out!

As seen on Man Down (Channel 4) and Would I Lie To You? (BBC One). As heard on Small Scenes (BBC Radio 4), the St Elwick’s Neighbourhood Association Newsletter podcast and the Three Bean Salad podcast.

In 2021, Mike charmed the nation with his appearance on the 11th series of Taskmaster on Channel 4. He then went on to guest on Sky’s revamp of Never Mind The Buzzcocks, and was the weekly winner on Richard Osman’s House of Games.

…inspired brilliance… at its best Zusa resembles an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? crossed with Spike Milligan’s military memoirs… deliciously distinctive fun.”   The Standard

ST AUSTELL PLAYERS PRESENT: “ANNE BOLEYN” BY HOWARD BRENTON

ST AUSTELL PLAYERS PRESENT: ANNE BOLEYN

22nd – 25th November – 7.30pm

Tickets available, from Ticketsource,  by clicking the link below:

£12 Adults / £6 Under 16s & Students with ID

Don’t lose your head…

Make sure you’ve booked your tickets for St Austell Players’ latest production – Anne Boleyn. Premiering at Shakespeare’s Globe in 2010, Howard Brenton’s take on the life of perhaps Henry VIII’s most famous wife is an enthralling tale following the life of the infamous queen and her struggle with power, politics, love and ambition.

Told through the eyes of both Anne and King James I, as he is haunted by her powerful impact, this fresh retelling is a new take on a classic story.
