We are so pleased to welcome back this very talented musician. Many of you will remember Savva as  the Polish refugee in LADIES IN LAVENDER, for which he was awarded a Best Actor by the GMDF. The stage has remained silent after that memorable play. Russian-born violinist Savva Zverev made his debut with the Hallé Orchestra in 2018, having subsequently played all major violin concertos with orchestras across the UK and internationally.

He has found a break in his busy schedule to step on the stage once more but this time to play VIVALDI’S FOUR SEASONS

With over thirty five years professional experience, playing with both national and international bands ranging from jazz duo to full symphony orchestra, we are pleased to announce that Alec is bringing his Saxophone to the Festival for one night only.

This revival for NPTC is a pair of short two- handed comedies , first performed in the round at the Church Hall  we are delighted to perform two of the four plays once again. Blind Date and The Holiday. They are a gloriously funny examination of the sometimes chaotic world of love and relationships and why the grass is never greener.

This is a one act comic play by Noel Coward , one of ten that make up a series ‘Tonight at 8.30’, a cycle of plays to be performed over three evenings. A couple are plagued by debt and gambling embarrassment and everything seems to go wrong for them. This romp of a comedy by the master of the understatement and wit, will be a night to remember .

Many of you may remember this play when it was first performed at Northenden Players when we were at the Boathouse. We are pleased to revive this dark and sometimes funny piece of drama. It concerns a group of seven year olds playing in the forest in the summer of 1943 unaware of the tragic events to follow.  The most striking feature of the play is that although the characters are children, they are played by adult actors . A device that Potter has used frequently in his work.

Geoff Scargill brings to life Northenden's most illustrious family. Who knew that local men had national and international influence that affected the lives of millions in this country and around the world?
