Murder, sax and chaos - all at Square Chapel!

There’s a little bit of something for everyone spread across the next seven days at Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Halifax.

Tonight ‘Murder, Marple and Me’ will entertain those who enjoy a bit of humour with their thrills (8pm) as the mutual distaste between ‘Miss Marple’ screen icon Margaret Rutherford and writer Agatha Christie comes under the microscope.

Tomorrow music is on the agenda as Yorkshire Saxophone Choir (above right), fresh from a performance in the prestigious World Saxophone Congress, will return to the venue (7.30pm).

Yorkshire Saxophone Choir is the UK’s only independent chamber ensemble of its kind, with an all-saxophone lineup featuring 12 performers and six different sizes of saxophone.

Playing an eclectic mix, with everything from baroque to rock, the choir guarantee there’ll be something for all the family in this latest concert.

To mark its tenth birthday in 2011, the ensemble wanted to create a new piece of music so commissioned British composer Martin Ellerby to write a celebratory work. The result, ‘Excursions’, will be part of this concert, along with ‘Bach’s Pianola’ a wacky fusion of Baroque and pianola style ragtime.

Sunday sees an hour of fun for all the family with ‘Just Us Three and the Sea’, an interactive show aimed at children aged three and over (2.30pm).

And on Thursday Organised Chaos presents a double bill of new writing - ‘A Lot Of It About’ by Ned Hopkins and ‘Broken’ by Ella Carmen Greenhill (8pm and 9.20pm respectively).

Award-winning theatre production company Organised Chaos seeks to nurture fresh creative talent in the northwest and provide new and emerging performers, directors, designers and writers with a platform in which they can work on a professional level.
