At the age of 16 Sobers played for Barbados against India. He played his first test match in 1954 against England in Kingston, Jamaica,  getting 4 wickets. During the 1957-58 tour of Pakistan he set the highest test score of the time with 365no. He then joined the Lancashire League, playing for Nottinghamshire where he developed an extremely fast bowl.

He would then bowl for South Australia setting records completing an unprecedented feat during his first season there; 1000 runs and 50 wickets twice in an Australian season, something that no one else was able to complete even once. He went on to captain the West Indies team in 39 Tests between 1965 and 1972.

Bullets and Daffodils
Saturday 16th August, 7:30pm
Tickets £17.00*/£15.00* (conc)

With the Centenary of World War One very much in people’s minds,  Wirral can lay claim to nurturing one of its most important figures.

Wilfred Owen is one of the most highly regarded and best loved poets of The Great War, and he spent his youth here in Wirral, and attended Birkenhead Institute.

Bullets And Daffodils tells Wilfred's story from the back streets of Tranmere to the trenches of The Somme. His most iconic poems, including Anthem For Doomed Youth, Futility and Dulce Et Decorum Est, are set powerfully to music in a passionate and moving contemporary way.

Narrator Billy Butler will be joined by a special 100 piece 'Wirral Remembers' community choir to represent today's generation’s remembrance. Bullets And Daffodils was the subject of a BBC TV documentary featuring Christopher Timothy.

Writer Dean Johnson has been called “the best songwriter in Merseyside today.” He is the founder of The Wilfred Owen Story museum in Wirral.

The script contains contributions from Doctor Who writer David Quantick, whilst the score includes There's No Way Out Of Here, donated gratis from Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. This stunning 2014 version has been produced especially for this Centenary performance, which will take place 100 years to the month that Britain entered the War.

Bullets And Daffodils is and has a good contemporary way of introducing people of all ages, but particularly the younger, to Wilfred's poetry.” – (Peter Owen, Wilfred's Nephew) 

Thought-provoking, moving and different.” British Theatre Guide

A beautiful girl, Snow White, takes refuge in the forest in the house of seven dwarfs to hide from her stepmother, The Wicked Queen. The Queen is jealous because she wants to be "the fairest in the land," and Snow White's beauty surpasses her own. Can the seven dwarfs save Snow White from the Wicked Queen’s evil plans? Let’s put it this way, red apples don’t get a particularly good reputation in this enchanting tale!

Leading the cast as The Wicked Queen is Coronation Street’s TUPELE DORGU, Preston born Tupele trained in drama and musical theatre at the London Studio Centre. She made her West End debut in Mamma Mia! although she is probably best known for playing Kelly Crabtree (also known as Legs) in Coronation Street for five years. Tupele’s other TV credits include: MI High (CBBC), Natalie Vance in Merseybeat, and Keely James in Waterloo Road. Her other theatre credits include: Teechers (UK Tour) Educating Rita (Lichfield Garrick), and Chicago (No1 Tour).

From Channel 5’s Milkshake!, the hugely talented OLIVIA BIRCHENOUGH will be play a glittering Snow White. Olivia trained at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and with the National Youth Theatre. She will resume touring with the nationwide theatre show Milkshake! Party Party! after Christmas.

Director CHRIS PIZZEY will also plays Muddles. With extensive theatre credits, Chris will be recognisable to television audiences as Mr Stephen in The Basil Brush Show, Trevor in The Legend of Dick and Dom and Sarah Jane’s father in The Sarah Jane Adventures. He has been a long-time member of the UK Productions panto company and this will be his second time directing Snow White.

Panto dame extraordinaire, STEPHEN DAVID, plays the hilarious Nursie, whilst a cast of seven dwarfs will create more madness and mayhem as they try to keep Snow White safe from the evil clutches of The Wicked Queen.

Musical Director STEVE ALLAN JONES and Choreographer and Assistant Director ANDREW MARGERISON return for the 5th year running for what has become one of the most successful pantos in the Liverpool City Region.

With a mix of well known songs, cheeky comedy, great casts, stunning sets, beautiful costumes, outstanding quality and value for money, it’s become an unmissable festive treat for families across the region.
