What's On Events List
Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society presents
Around the World in 80 Days
From the classic novel by Jules Verne
Adapted by Laura Eason
Directed by James Wood
This amateur production of "Around the World in 80 Days" is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books. www.nickhernbooks.co.uk
The fabulously wealthy Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg wagers his life's fortune that he can circumnavigate the globe in just eighty days.
Along with his hapless valet Passepartout, he sets out on a dazzling escapade that takes him from the misty alleys of London to the exotic subcontinent and on to the Wild West as they race against the clock on a dizzying succession of trains, steamers, a wind-propelled sledge and an elephant.
With a small cast playing more than fifty unforgettable characters, this imaginative romp is great for anyone who enjoys for a high-spirited adventure.
Some comments from the opening night:
“Very very clever and lots of fun.”
“We didn’t know what to expect but we had such a good time all the way through.”
“Lovely music and dancing, and Passepartout and the Inspector in particular were hilarious.”
"My brother went and said it was brilliant- fabulous dancing as well. Hayling is blessed to have HIADS. X"
"Went last night for the first time and was very impressed. Was a good laugh and the theatre itself is lovely. Will definitely return. Well done everyone"
"A great evening of uplifting entertainment which we all needed after 2 years of lockdown. Well done to the cast who were fantastic"
"Saw this last night.. Was fantastic !! Well done everyone.. Especially Scott (as Passepartout)... You were great"
"I heard a couple of older ladies talking about how entertaining it had been and much funnier than they had been expecting."
"We went on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to the cast and crew for an amazing performance. Hope the rest of the week goes well!"

Hayling Musical Society Presents
Little Shop of Horrors
7:30pm (Sat Matinee at 2:30pm), £16
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.
The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop Of Horrors, the charmingly tongue-in-cheek comedy has been produced worldwide to incredible success.
Tickets will be available shortly
Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society presents
by Amanda Whittington
Directed by Linda MacDonald
An exuberant comedy about four likely lasses from the Hull fish docks on a day trip to the races.
Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot the year it relocated to York.
Out go the hairnets, overalls and wellies as the four ditch work, do themselves up to the nines and head off to the races for a drink, a flirt and a flutter.
Secrets are spilled with the champagne and friendships are tested to the limit. Yet as the day unfolds and tempers fray, their accumulator bet keeps quietly winning. If their luck and their nerve holds, the ladies could could hit the jackpot – and more.
