We’ve got plenty of variety for you coming up over the next few weeks!

Hobson's Choice (May 2024)First off we have Hobson’s Choice which opens this Thursday 16th May running until Saturday 18th May. This comedy is based around the battle of wills between a hard-headed cobbler, called Hobson and his daughter Maggie. Maggie defies Hobson by marrying his most talented worker – the timid and downtrodden Will. She helps Will to develop his potential and together they turn the tables on Hobson.

Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks (May 2024) SquareFollowed shortly after by Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, our first FHODS Small Stage Theatre production, opening on Thursday 23rd May until Saturday 25th May. In Richard Alfieri’s poignant comedy, FHODS invites you to a retirees apartment in Florida to witness the developing relationship between Lily Harrison, a ‘take no prisoners’ widow of a conservative baptist minister, and Michael Minetti an acerbic gay dance instructor, newly from New York. Both wounded, both keeping secrets, an unlikely friendship forms leading to a meeting of feet, if not always minds.

Punk and Plume (June 2024)June starts with Kings, Queens and Inbetweens, on Saturday 8th June, presented by Punk and Plume, who regularly perform at The Tower. Enjoy an evening of top drag cabaret, hosted by the fabulous Dita Garbo, featuring a variety of acts to entertain and delight. Continue your night after the show with music & dancing. Guaranteed to be a night to remember!
