SHOWS FOR THE NEW YEAR AT THE NEW THEATRE The New Theatre is delighted to announce five exciting productions for 2009 which are now on sale. This great mix of shows includes Spider’s Web, Billy Liar, Calendar Girls, An Inspector Calls and Beauty and the Beast. With this exciting selection of thrilling drama, family spectacle, hilarious comedy and big star names, tickets are expected to sell fast.

Agatha Christie’s classic ‘whodunit’ Spider’s Web opens from Tuesday 10 – Saturday 14 February. A dinner party is interrupted by the discovery of a body. Everybody is a suspect as each guest reveals the dead man may not be a stranger. Starring Catherine Shipton (Casualty) and Denis Lill (The Royal), Spider’s Web promises to be a thrilling night of theatre.

The charming, warm and witty comic masterpiece Billy Liar is at the New Theatre from Tuesday 3 – Saturday 7 March. Billy is a compulsive liar living in a fantasy world. He struggles valiantly and with hilarious consequences to balance his dream world with reality. Helen Fraser, who starred as Barbara in the 1963 film, joins the cast to play Billy’s mother.

Calendar Girls is the stage show of the successful film of the same name. Based on a true story, it follows ordinary women from a Yorkshire WI as they daringly pose nude for a charity calendar. With a stellar cast including Lynda Bellingham, Brigit Forsyth, Patricia Hodge, Siân Phillips, Elaine C Smith, Gaynor Faye and Julia Smith, Calendar Girls will be on from Monday 9 – Saturday 14 March prior to a West End run.

J.B Priestley’s An Inspector Calls returns from Tuesday 19 – Saturday 23 May. The wealthy Birling family are interrupted during a dinner party by a mysterious inspector who questions each of them on their involvement in the death of a young girl. A tale that challenges all of us to examine our moral values, An Inspector Calls is sure to be as much of a hit as on its previous visits to Cardiff.

The spectacular family musical Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will be back at the New Theatre from Tuesday 23 June – Saturday 4 July. A selfish prince is enchanted to become a hideous beast and can only reverse the spell if he can make someone love him. Full of classic songs from the 1991 animated film, including Beauty and the Beast, Be Our Guest, Gaston and many more, it captures the magic of this tale as old as time.

All these great shows are expected to be popular so be sure to book tickets early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are now on sale and can be booked via the Box Office on 029 2087 8889 or online* at .
