Chorley Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society (CADOS) will continue its ‘Northern Lights’ season at the start of 2016, which presents a selection of plays all by writers born in the north of England.
In February it’s the classic tale of a daydreamer, Billy Liar, then in April the Alan Bennett play Habeas Corpus is full of comic misunderstandings and mistaken identity.
The season rounds off with Mark Jones’ specially commissioned Pals, all about the Chorley soldiers at war 100 years ago.
In addition to all this there’s a modern-day musical version of Pride and Prejudice in May, which is not part of the regular season.
A number of special guests are also set to grace the Little Theatre stage this year, with some comedians already announcing dates for Chorley.
Richard Herring visits in March, while Jenny Eclair returns in April, followed by Blofeld and Baxter later that month.
May is a busy month, with the likes of Romesh Ranganathan, Mark Watson, Mark Steel and Allan Beswick coming to town.
The Houghton Weavers will also bring their popular Christmas Show to the Little Theatre in December.
The 2016/17 CADOS season is yet to be decided.
