Sea Airs

The Crouch End Players proudly present

Sea Airs

(or Poseidon’s Song)

17th – 20th October 2018 

The Moravian Church Hall, 
Priory Road, N8 7HR 

“I’ll sing you a song of the fish of the sea.” 

Dates: Wednesday 17th to Saturday 20th October 2018
Doors: 7pm Curtain up: 7:30pm
Tickets: £9 (Children under 12 £6)
All tickets for Wednesday 17th October £6 only.

 The Crouch End Players' first show of the new season is an original and heart-warming production, full of familiar songs of love, life and the sea.

Told with humour and energy, Sea Airs is the story of three couples dealing with love and loss in a Cornish fishing community. Played out in 1950's Cornwall and 1980's London, the story is told through drama and song, interwoven with Greek myth and Cornish legend.

With folk songs and sea shanties, as well as some ‘80’s classics, for you to sing along to, this will be a must see for the Autumn.

A Midsummer Night's Dream - May 2018



 The Earl Haig Hall, Elder Avenue, Crouch End N8

9th – 12th May 2018

The Crouch End Players proudly present



“The course of true love never did run smooth.” 

Dates: Wednesday 9th to Saturday 12th May 2018 
Curtain up: 7:30pm (Saturday Matinee 2:30pm)
Tickets £10 (Discounted tickets of £6 available for children under 12 for the matinee only)

The Crouch End Players presents a joyful contemporary production of Shakespeare’s best loved romantic comedy. Mayhem ensues as lovelorn hipsters and modern mechanicals find themselves the pawns in a game between the feuding Fairy King and Queen. 
Silly, slapstick and even a bit raunchy, this pacy production finds laughter in every line of a well-loved classic. In the welcoming atmosphere of the Earl Haig Hall, Shakespeare’s Athenian forest will be transformed into an urban jungle peopled by a rich mixture of gods and mortals.
