The year is 1950. Three years previously, Sheffield’s Friendship Theatre faced closure but struggle on despite the sudden departure of its manager. Jack Callendar, ambitious local actor and playwright, has stepped into the director’s shoes, but his artistic aspirations are compromised by a weakness for the 'good life' of girlfriends, gambling and drinking and he despairs of ever getting his 'masterpiece' Waiting for the Ferry the critical recognition it deserves. It seems hopeless until, out of the blue, comes a call from a West End producer who wants to put it on. She is under pressure from East End crook Freddie Fittup to produce a play with him in a starring role and Waiting for the Ferry fits the bill. But Fittup, is being hounded by Scotland Yard who also manage to put the wind up the rest of the cast, most of whom have something to hide. Meanwhile, Waiting for the Ferry opens on the Strand. How will it go down? See for yourself!
The show promises laughter and song so get your tickets ASAP! Members £6, non-members £7 and children 16 and under £4

Written by Los Green and performed by DLS members, it promises to be another very entertaining evening

These three well-known local musicians have been making music together for longer than they can remember and that shows in the intuitive way they work together. G is Graham Jones, a wonderful double bass player with a deep resonant sound that gives you butterflies, and a beautiful strong rhythm. P is Pete Moxley, a fluent, melodic keyboard player with great facility and gripping harmony. S is Steve Salfield, renowned on saxophone, mostly tenor but sometimes soprano and alto. His sound moves from soft and silky to firm and lively, beautiful melodies and moving tone characterise his playing. Together GPS play some well-known jazz standards and through improvisation bring their own interpretation. Well worth hearing.
This is a pay on the door event (£5 members & £7 non-members) and starts at 8.15pm.
A 4 piece Honky Tonk band, fiddle, lap steel, double bass, guitar, vocals and harmony vocals.

If you like Hank Williams and Bob Wills then you will like this band

A range of excellent entertainers and a return visit of Matt Walker - a local star who has performed not only in Sheffield Theatres but also in venues around the country. Order your tickets now from Alan Haigh or Pat Sleath.
It's been far too long since Tim performed at the Club. Known in his native Macclesfield as the love child of Jack Thackray and Morrisey his songs are hard to describe, but definitely unique. The title of one of his albums- Whimsical Fantasy-gives you an idea, but perhaps his own description of his music works better - “quirky, jazzy, folky things”. He is a treasure. Come and see him perform solo and join the Bungalow Band for one of their typical rambunctious sets
Friday 10th June sees the return of Arose Between; an acoustic band who cover songs from all genres and all decades.
The last time Arose Between performed for us at De La Salle, they proved to be a real hit so although you may pay on the door, please do contact Linda Green to reserve your tickets and avoid disappointment.
Tickets are £4 members and £6 non-members
