Oh! What a Lovely Dicker Cabaret (2018)

The Dicker Players have been performing the ever-popular annual Dicker Cabaret at different venues for over 40 years. We are delighted to return to the wonderful Hailsham Pavilion for our fourth year.

Oh! What a Lovely Dicker Cabaret

Hailsham Pavilion
Friday 7th & Saturday 8th December
All seats £12
Tickets from Hailsham Pavilion Box Office 01323 841414

We are pleased to announce that this year £2 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Royal British Legion. What are you waiting for? Roll up, roll up, get yer loverly tickets ‘ere! Get your singing voice on and dress up (if you want) it’s going to be Oh What a Lovely Dicker Cabaret

The evening contains sketches, comedy routines and songs but - be warned - some of the material is of an adult nature which might cause offence.

This year, to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, we are including a wartime theme in the show. The first half will be mainly sketch based in our familiar Cabaret style. The second half will be similar but all of the sketches, acts (including a disastrous 10 minute play) and songs will be based around a wartime theme. 

Be prepared to join in the songs and, if you want to enter into the spirit, feel free to dress up appropriately or bring a Union Jack to wave!

This is probably the funniest live show you’re ever likely to see (in Hailsham anyway!).

The perfect pre-Christmas treat for you, your family, friends, office...

Get your tickets now for the latest performances by the Dicker Players

Three hilarious one-act plays in one evening, all for the price of one at just £12 (£10 concessions). Streuth by Michael Green, Last Panto in Little Grimley by David Tristram and A Collier's Tuesday Tea by Michael Green. Expect things to 'go wrong'!!

Friday 8th and Saturday 9th June 2018, 7.30pm at Hailsham Pavilion
Tickets from Hailsham Pavilion Box Office 01323 841414

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend the evening in the company of a typically hapless amateur dramatic society?
Well wonder no more!

“A Collier’s Tuesday Tea” and “Streuth”, brilliantly written by Michael Green, are carefully constructed parodies ensuring that anything which could conceivably go wrong in a production does so.

“A Collier’s Tuesday Tea” combines the kitchen sink with the coal mine, together with an irreverent glance towards D. H. Lawrence. It is 1912 when you join the ’epplethwaite family as they gather for ‘igh tea. The weather is awful and yes - you guessed it - there’s trouble at t’pit! Not to mention trouble with the props, scenery - and accents.

“Streuth” is a crime drama which even Agatha Christie would never have dared to write. Set in the drawing room of D’Arcy Manor the mystery unravels - unfortunately so do the cast - and most of the scenery! There is such confusion that this play might just go on… …and on… …and on…

Sandwiched in between these two wonderfully funny plays is David Tristram’s “Last Panto In Little Grimley”. This slightly longer play follows the misfortunes of Little Grimley’s Am Dram Society - down to its last four members - as it plans its next production. Things are getting desperate as they meet to revive the group’s ailing support. Needless to say things are far from harmonious, and chaos - and laughter - ensue! Sound like any group you know?

If you loved “The Play That Goes Wrong” you’ll love these plays - 3 for the price of 1!
