By special arrangement with StudioCanal and Fiery Angel Ltd. London

The Ladykillers

By Graham Linehan and Directed by Anne Chandler
From the motion picture screenplay by William Rose

Fri 2nd & Sat 3rd, Wed 7th - Sat 10th November

As you are no doubt already aware, the performance of The Ladykillers is around the corner and as always, we are looking for lots of lovely volunteers to man the stations Front of House.
Performance dates are:

Fri 2nd Evening,
Sat 3rd Matinee,
Sat 3rd Evening,
Wed 7th Evening,
Thur 8th Evening,
Fri 9th Evening and
Sat 10th Evening

... so there’s plenty of chances for everyone to get involved.

You will need to be there an hour before the performance. We are trying something a little different this show to help streamline the whole process. We have created a group on Facebook called Playhouse Company Volunteers page (search and you will find) where we will be posting all jobs. They will be filled on a first come first serve basis. We understand not everyone is on Facebook so if you are not or you are aware of someone who is not, email us or use our form to get in touch and we shall make sure there is a spot for them.

Come by and Say "Hi"

We'll be promoting The Ladykillers with a stand at the Regent Arcade Shopping Centre on Saturday 13th and Saturday 27th October.  We're hoping to copy the success in drumming up excitement for our recent comedy double bill: The Real Inspector Hound & Black Comedy.

If you would like to offer some of your own time to help us at our stand, please get in touch!  Otherwise, do stop by to say "Hello", enter our competition, and snap a photo with our cast/crew to help us spread the word on social media - don't forget to use our hashtag #theladykillers and to tag us @playhousecompany!

Book your tickets!

Don't forget you can book your tickets easily and at anytime using the links on either our own website, or on the Playhouse Theatre website, as well as through the Box Office during their usual opening hours.

HERITAGE OPEN DAY: It was great to see you!


Sunday 16th September saw the Playhouse Theatre throw its doors open to the public as part of the Annual Heritage Open day. The Playhouse Company were there with a stand in the Green Room looking for members of the public to join the company and buy tickets for our next production - The Ladykillers.

Thanks to everyone who came and helped out on the day: Lloyd Spencer, Mika Mitchell, Dom Gittins, Will Browne, Tony Maisey and Ben Lowater. We also did a free prize draw for two free tickets to come and see the Ladykillers. Congratulations to Ms Pallavi Chaudry who was lucky in the draw.
