Broadstone Players ‘Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick’


Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and DickBroadstone Players Theatre Company’s next production is ‘Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick’, which they will be performing from Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st November.

Carrying on in the great tradition of British comedy, Terry Johnson’s play takes some familiar faces and gets a bit familiar with them. This hilarious comedy tells the behind-the-scenes story of Sid James and Barbara Windsor, during the filming of four of the Carry On films. Expect a range of costumes from ancient Rome and seventeenth century England through to the 1960s and ’70s, with a caravan on stage!

Directed by Stuart Glossop and with a cast of well known local actors, this is going to be a right Carry On, but be warned that the play contains adult themes and strong language.

It will all be happening in Broadstone War Memorial Hall at 7.45pm each evening and at 2.30pm for the matinee performance on Saturday 21st. As usual, tea and cake will be served to everyone at the matinee. There is a licenced bar at the evening performances.

Tickets are on sale at Broadstone News and at Wimborne Tourist Information Centre. You can also reserve seats on 01202 678449 or by email to honsec@broadstoneplayers.co.uk. Tickets are £8 each with a special offer on the Tuesday or Wednesday of 2 for £12.

Broadstone Players are expecting a high demand for tickets and recommend early booking or purchase. There will also be tickets available on the door, from half an hour before ‘curtain up’.

“We are getting a number of groups coming to our productions, whether groups of friends, of a common interest or groups of work colleagues. They find it is a lovely way to all spend an enjoyable evening or afternoon together, at a very reasonable price. I would be very pleased to hear from anyone who would like to bring a group along and I can work with you to make it easy to arrange and to offer a very warm welcome to your group”.
