The world-famous Jongleurs Comedy Club is set to stop-off at the St Helens Theatre Royal for one night only next month.

On Thursday, October 3, theatre-goers will be treated to a string of side-splitting performances from some of the best stand-ups on the UK comedy circuit.

Three top comics and a compere will all take to the stage as part of the Jongleurs roadshow in a bid to tickle your funny bone.

Before that though, look out for performances from St Helens Sinfonietta and the Pilkington Musical Theatre Company at the famous Corporation Street venue.

On Saturday (September 21) St Helens Sinfonietta, conducted by Alan Free, are set to perform a very special evening of songs and orchestral music from the great stage musicals.

These include My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls, Kismet and Les Miserables, before ending with a magnificent compilation of the best songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

A true feast of favourites!

The soloists will be soprano Kate Brian and tenor Jean-Pascal Heynemand.

And on September 26, 27 and 28 the Pilkington Musical Theatre Company will present their annual musical.

Set in Camden, Our House is a witty and brilliantly-crafted tale featuring the energetic songs of Madness.

It tells the story of Joe Casey who, on the night of his 16th birthday, takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out on their first date.

Tickets for all three shows are available from the box office or online at:
