Foyer Gallery Exhibition

Noel Thompson and Stephen Price present
LANDSCAPES AND SEASCAPES

A fabulous exhibition of photographs in Riverside's Foyer Gallery by BBC's NOEL THOMPSON and NRC's STEPHEN PRICE

LANDSCAPES AND SEASCAPES

In an update to our advertised exhibition for March, Stephen Price is joined by Noel Thompson, who is better-known as a broadcaster, but is also a keen photographer. This new joint exhibition combines Noel`s photographs of the Mountains of Mourne, with Stephen`s seascapes from the north coast.

“I never go walking without a camera,” says Noel. “The ever-changing light and clouds offer limitless photo opportunities, whatever the season.” Exhibition-goers will see another, contemplative side to Noel, who for more years than he cares to remember has interrogated politicians for BBC Northern Ireland.

Meanwhile, the north coast is dominated by the sea and its ever-changing moods. Stephen is less interested in sunsets and more interested in storms, which is just as well, given the weather over the past few years. He now works at the Northern Regional College, but in the dim and distant past, he and Noel were BBC colleagues.

“Unlike Noel, I escaped, but here we are, working together again, in our favourite medium.”

Landscapes and Seascapes runs from the 1st of March until the 3Oth of April.



PERFORMANCES:  Friday 6th to Saturday 14th May - nightly at 8pm and with matinees on the two Saturdays at 2pm

Community Musical

Portrush Music Society presents
O L I V E R !

Lionel Bart's enduring musical - a hit around the world since the 1960s

Directed by Kerry Dunn


The award-winning Portrush Music Society has enchanted Riverside Theatre audiences for many years with their talented local cast of actors and singers. Recent productions winning critical acclaim have included Sister Act, Evita and The Addams Family. This year’s staging of Lionel Bart’s family musical Oliver! should prove equally popular.

Nothing works on the stage better than a well-crafted tale, and this show, based on Charles Dickens’s classic novel Oliver Twist, will engage the audience with its pathos and drama. It tells the story of a young orphan as he travels through the dark underbelly of London society.
A host of familiar characters, ranging from the reprobate to the inspirational, are brought to life – perhaps larger than life – in this glowing production.

The musical score features many famous numbers including Consider Yourself, Food Glorious Food, As Long As He Needs Me and It's A Fine Life. Come and join Fagin, Nancy, The Artful Dodger, Bill Sykes and of course Oliver himself, and enjoy their potent mix of fun and misery woven into this marvellous production.

Tickets from £10 - £17 with family rates and concessions available for selected performances.

WATCH A VIDEO TRAILER VIA:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWJ5U4hij50




There's a gentleman living here. He's got a birthday today, and he's forgotten all
about it. So we're going to remind him. We're going to give him a party.

A shabby boarding house in a small English seaside town. An elderly couple take care of a solitary guest, who rarely ventures out. The arrival of two enigmatic strangers seems to offer a welcome distraction from their mundane existence. But when an impromptu, seemingly innocent birthday party abruptly turns in to a deadly game of cat and mouse, there are horrifying repercussions.

By turns, cryptic thriller and macabre comedy,
The Birthday Party was Harold Pinter's first major work and is among the most unusual and absorbing of his plays.

London Classic Theatre presents the first significant touring revival of the twenty first century, promising to bring this ground
breaking classic to fresh and exhilarating life.

Big Telly Theatre Company presents
P U C K O O N

An uproarious comedy, based on the book by Spike Milligan

Directed by Zoë Seaton

Music by Paul Boyd


It’s back by popular demand! Big Telly’s smash hit stage production of Spike Milligan’s PUCKOON returns for an all-Ireland and UK tour in Spring/Summer 2016.

The show’s sell-out 2009 and remounted 2011 tour had audiences all across Ireland screaming with laughter at its Goonish blend of theatrical anarchy, musical wit, and impossible plot. Ireland 1922, and the Ulster Boundary Commission has drawn the new border straight through the small town of Puckoon.

With the church separated from its own graveyard and drink now thirty per cent cheaper in one corner of the pub, life in the newly divided village will never be the same again. Based on the book by Spike Milligan, this comic masterpiece is an irreverent and hilarious story which takes the mick, celebrates the absurd, and paints a picture of a simple life that borders on the ridiculous.

In the past years he has had numerous high profile TV & Radio appearances and airplay under his belt including Bob Harris BBC Radio 2 and has supported names like Jools Holland, Alabama 3, The Cranberries and has collaborated musically with such names as Hal Ketchum, the legendary ‘Blockheads’, award winning saxophonist Gilad Atzmon and co wrote and performed with some of Nashville's finest, David Olney, John Hadley, Sergio Webb & Irene Kelley.

Over the last 7 years Ben has enjoyed successful tours in Ireland, UK, Europe & U.S receiving rave reviews and attracting a growing fan base . His band includes amongst the finest musicians in Ireland, Michael Black on Drums, Ronnie O’Flynn on bass, Mick McCarney on guitar and his wife Julieanne Reel on backing vocals & percussion. With this line up they have built up a loyal following.

The band have previously graced big festivals such as Huntenpop in the Netherlands, Kilkenny rhythm & roots, Cork jazz festival and have also appeared for the first time at Ireland’s premiere music festival “Electric Picnic” in 2014.
In 2013 Ben toured in the U.S & UK with Tommy Womack (Nashville) as a duo. And in 2014 his band toured as double bill with legendary folk singer/songwriter Eric Andersen in the UK. 2015 promises to be a big one for Ben Reel with the release of his new album `7th’.

The Abbey Theatre was founded in 1904 by W. B. Yeats and Lady Augusta Gregory. Its precursors were the Irish Literary Theatre and Frank and Willie Fay’s National Dramatic Society.

The Abbey's brilliant reputation for top-quality productions are known the world over.


Those I belonged to, those I have not forgotten, the irreplaceable ones, they kept their nerve, and they died.


On 1 July 1916, the 36th Ulster Division took part in one of the bloodiest battles in human history. The Battle of the Somme.

One hundred years on, the Abbey Theatre presents a major new co-production of Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme directed by Headlong’s Artistic Director, Jeremy Herrin.

In the extraordinary circumstances of World War 1, eight ordinary men are changed, changed utterly…

This iconic war play by Frank McGuinness is a powerful portrayal of mortality, love and loss.

Emeritus Professor Tony Bareham presents
SEATS OF PLEASURE A show for lovers of literature, music and art

A rare and wonderful look at eighteenth century Pleasure Gardens, as represented in literature, music and art of the period

Director: TONY BAREHAM
Musical Director: ERIC BOYD

ACTORS: Tony Bareham, Jeremy Lewis and Johanne Woods

THIS PRODUCTION IS UNIQUE TO COLERAINE'S RIVERSIDE THEATRE.


This will be the fifth of a series of shows directed by Professor Bareham, all with a similar format. The previous ones were on Charles Lever, on Lord Byron, Chasing The Cheerless Gloom (a meditation on Winter in literature and music), and Entrances and Exits: A Tribute to Shakespeare.

Readings from appropriate literary texts are accompanied by relevant projected images, and the readings are interspersed with songs and music appropriate to the period/theme. Musical Director is Eric Boyd.

Seats of Pleasure will take a look at the eighteenth century pleasure gardens as represented in literature, art and music. A significant number of novelists sent their characters to Vauxhall or Ranelagh, and the range of experiences – from near rape to innocent adulation – gives an entertaining cross section of voices and opinions.

These are strengthened by authentic accounts from travellers and visitors, who recorded their impressions.

Tony Bareham, who was responsible for generating the majority of student drama during the life of the New University of Ulster, has directed dozens of shows in Riverside during the last thirty five years, including Shakespeare's Hamlet, The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth (twice) and The Merchant of Venice - along with Webster's Duchess of Malfi, Edward Albee's Zoo Story and two of Alan Bennett's Talking Heads. He also premiered local author Des Cranston's play Personal Space in the Theatre, in one of Riverside's lunchtime drama presentations.Tony both directed and performed in Alan Ayckbourn's comedy "Ten Times Table", which he had been commissioned to present as the highlight of Riverside's 25th Anniversary celebrations.

TEACHERS - PLEASE NOTE
This production will be of educational use to any of your students studying state examinations in English Literature, History and Music.
