A couple of British theatre alerts for today, January 17:

In Oakengates, Telford, Shropshire, an amateur performance of the Gordon & Caird Jane Eyre musical:
Oakengates Theatre presents
Jane Eyre
17 Jan - 18 Jan
Venue: The Place

Jane Eyre is a musical drama with music and lyrics by composer-lyricist Paul Gordon and a book by John Caird, based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë. The musical premiered on Broadway in 2000.A dramatic interpretation of the ever-popular novel, Jane Eyre is also blessed with a luxuriant score, haunting and memorable music, and crisp, intelligent lyrics which speak from the very heart of this tragic and romantic story.It promises to be yet another impressive winter production filled with the life and energy that TACT bring to all of their performances. By arrangement with Josef Weinberger.
And LipService Theatre  returns to their Withering Looks comic play with a brief UK tour:
An authentic insight into the lives and works of those three Brontë sisters (well, two of them actually, Anne's just popped out for a cup of sugar). Who is the Brontës' mysterious neighbour, Mr. Moorcock of Ravaged Heath House, and what does the maniacal laughter coming from his attic mean? Do unfulfilled souls really wander over the wild and heather-clad moors? Who should Cathy marry, Heathcliff or David Niven?
