Stepping out to Playhouse 2 with Crompton Stage Society

CROMPTON Stage Society presents Stepping Out by Richard Harris at Playhouse 2 in Shaw from February 15-22.

Stepping Out is a funny and touching play and centres around eight individuals from disparate backgrounds, with differing motivations. The group all attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy church hall.

Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions and showing little co-ordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness that culminates in a spectacular dance number.

This comedy play was later turned into a popular movie starring Liza Minnelli and Julie Walters.

Playhouse 2’s newest venture sees the launch of the Golden Oldies’ film afternoon.

This takes place on the third Thursday of every month at 1pm.

Tickets are priced at £5 and include light refreshments and cake.

The film afternoon is a great opportunity to show classic and iconic films of the past and is an enjoyable afternoon for all ages.

It is a way of bringing the whole community together, helping people who might be lonely, looking to meet new friends, or for those who wish to watch their favourite golden oldies on the big screen.

The next Golden Oldie film is the original ‘Father of the Bride’ starring Spencer Tracy, Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Bennett.

It will be screened on Thursday, February 20 at 1 pm. The following films are Casablanca on March 19 and Easter Parade on April 16..

On Saturday, February 22 at 8pm Jared Lee – international Elvis Masters champion will be in the building.

Jared recreates the electrifying career of Elvis Presley.

Taking you back to the Early Years, NBC 68 Comeback Special, Elvis, That’s The Way It Is and more.

Tickets cost £10 for Stepping Out and £15 for Elvis.

They can be bought online at or from A Shaw Thing, 35 Market Street, Shaw, OL2 8NR or phone 01706 841697.
