Keeping The Dream Alive is a play written by Rose Cook Monk honouring the iconic Duncan Edwards and the events of the Munich air crash.

This incredible play tells the story of the world’s greatest footballer Duncan Edwards, who tragically died on the 21st February 1958 from injuries sustained in the infamous Munich aircraft disaster which killed eight of the magnificent Busby Babes, the wonderfully talented young Manchester United players, who under the Management of the iconic Matt Busby were the very best of young footballing talent.

This play is sympathetically and carefully penned with the full backing of Duncan's loving family. Revealing details about the disaster that are largely unknown, it tells the personal stories of those closest to Duncan in the wake of the tragedy.

This play features the very best of local talent and the one and only academy award winner Bernard Hill, who is a life long Manchester United fan.

Whether you're a history enthusiast, a football fanatic or just appreciate high quality theatre productions, this is an event you really can't miss.

SHREK is here in June 2020 - a regional premiere!!

From the award-winning Quarry Bank Musical Theatre Society, everything #goesgreen from 30th May - 6th June 2020.

Extra dates have been added as this show will sell out exceptionally quickly!

Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad.

So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Get these dates in your dairy, and don't mis out on this "Big, Bright, Beautiful World!"
