The rivalry between farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop to the love story of cowboy Curly and farmer’s daughter Lauren and the road to statehood for Oklahoma.  Truly one of the greatest musicals of the 40s and 50s era and since.

Bookham Light Operatic Society is a friendly active society of keen amateurs who put on musical shows in the Fetcham Village Hall and the Nomad Theatre.

‘Rodgers and Hammerstein’ refers to an influential, innovative and successful American musical theatre writing team consisting of composer Richard Rodgers (1902–1979) and lyricist-dramatist Oscar Hammerstein II (1895–1960). They created a string of popular Broadway musicals in the 1940s and 1950s, initiating what is considered the “golden age” of musical theatre. Five of their Broadway shows, Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music, were outstanding successes, as was the television broadcast of Cinderella.

The most recent production from The Nomads with Bookham Light Operatic Society was The Pajama Game in May 2016.

Jon Fox from NODA had this to say about it:

A very strong principal cast backed by a highly enthusiastic and energetic chorus made for a very high performance standard.

Pajama Game – I’m not at all in love

The Nomads are members of NODA, which has a membership of 2500 amateur theatre groups and 3000 individual enthusiasts throughout the UK, staging musicals, operas, plays, concerts and pantomimes in a wide variety of performing venues, ranging from the country’s leading professional theatres to tiny village halls.

An event to launch a new local professional theatre company:  TheatReviva! is reviving top-quality, repertory theatre in Surrey.

This is a fundraising entertainment, to launch the company;  and show you some of the talent who’ll be performing with us over the months ahead!  There will be excerpts from ‘Taming of the Shrew’ and ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and plenty of singing and dancing talent on show.

There used to be repertory Theatre in North Guildford/Mole Valley area. TheatReviva is about to revive it, with top-quality, seasonal repertory productions starting this autumn!  The Nomad Theatre in East Horsley have opened their doors, so together we can mount some affordable popular, modern and classic productions over the next year or two.

Come and enjoy a magical evening in the Nomad Theatre and wear a hat!

Free canapés and drink on the door

Artistic Director, Graham Pountney, lived in East Horsley until he trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School aged 20.  Now celebrating his 45th year as an actor (with credits from Regional Repertory Theatres, Touring, The West End and the RNT; TV appearances in Howards Way, New Tricks, Hustle; and Films including Goodbye Mr Chips amongst others) he is delighted to be bringing his passion for live, community-centred theatrical engagement back to his home town!
