After two sell out Monday Matinee shows Andy returns with another Monday afternoon extravaganza of live entertainment from some of the UK’s finest performers.
Andy’s special guests will be the king of Swing himself Mr. Paul Pashley along with award winning vocalist Rosie Plummer and Plaza favourite Marilyn Royle. Resident matinee pianist Steve Ramsbottom adds to a variety show of the highest order with Soul, Swing and Pop on the Plaza menu. Welcome back the good times and book early to enjoy a brilliant afternoon of entertainment with Stockport’s premier live entertainer and his fabulous guests.
Chaos reigns in this brand-new farce of mistaken identities and disastrous decisions from the witty pen of star of stage and screen, Nigel Planer (The Young Ones, The Comic Strip Presents, Blackadder, Death in Paradise).
An unlikely bunch of modern-day do-gooders try to make the world a better place, but lose the plot, their morals and even their clothes in all the best traditions of classic British farce.
Timothy has quit the world of banking and now - for all the wrong reasons – wants to give something back and help those less fortunate. Along with his brazen and shameless PR agent, he plans a charity auction to raise money for good causes. He misguidedly enlists the help of narcissist TV personality, Matthew Board – a man clearly on the edge in more ways than one. Matters are made worse by Sir Ommany John, a geriatric world-famous artist who still has an eye for the ladies; Katia, a confused Finnish exchange student and not to mention Timothy’s crazed ex-wife who is out for revenge…and will the plasterer ever turn up?
The doors slam and the double entendres flow and with more misunderstandings and mayhem than you can shake a charity collection box at, this play will have you in stitches and make you question if things really are, All Above Board.

Production company Entertainment Unlimited have embarked on another UK wide tour in Autumn 2021 with the laugh out loud comedy, Dirty Dusting.
THIS IS AN EVENING OF PURE THEATRICAL VIAGRA
Our 2021 production stars Vicki Michelle (‘Allo ‘Allo!) and Vicky Entwistle (Coronation Street) Leah Bell completes the threesome.

A wrong number requiring a Sex Chat Line rings into the office and gives them a great idea… “Why not start their own Sex Chat Line?” After all, their age and appearance won’t matter on the telephone and providing they can keep this a secret from Dave, their boss…they could be onto a winner!
What could possibly go wrong????
Written by Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood, this production is directed by Leah Bell who injects this hilarious play with a fresh and lively approach coupled with her own unique comedic style.
