17th to 21st April 2018 at Stantonbury Theatre, Milton Keynes

Following the sell out success of the Vicar of Dibley in 2012, and The Vicar of Dibley – the Second Coming in 2013, we returned to Dibley for a third visit.

The story continued with the christening of Hugo and Alice’s baby and was it possible that love is in the air for vicar Geraldine? But the village of Dibley was facing a crisis and the very future of this picture postcard settlement is in question. Could the loony villagers rally round and save their homes?

A stage play adapted from the original TV series written by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer, by MKTOC’s very own Steve Clark and David Lovesy. By kind permission of Richard Curtis and Tiger Aspect Productions and supporting Comic Relief. An amateur production to professional standards.

Our show raffle and donation buckets raised just under £530 for the British Heart Foundation – thank you to everyone who contributed to this!

The script for this production is available for other groups to perform, by arrangement with Tiger Aspect Productions. Please email Steve for more information.

Here is what our audiences had to say about our previous Dibley productions:

“I came to see the first VoD show last year and did not think it could get any better. This year I brought my mother along to see it and we were amazed. I go to the theatre a fair bit and your products are some of the best.”

“Wonderful, a hoot as always, even the jokes we’ve heard before. Alice was amazing.”

“Honestly? I thought it was better than the real Vicar of Dibley! Haven’t laughed so much in ages!”

“Absolutely amazing, I couldn’t believe how good the characters from the TV show had been represented. Loved all of them… altogether a very clever and natural production.”

“The Vicar of Dibley… What a great show! You have to admire the MKTOC team. First off for bothering to put on such great shows in our town. Secondly to be so “quality controlled” about what they do put on, from casting to set and staging, attention to detail in costumes, accents, props, the programme, marketing etc, using the right tools for the job in everything they do is what they do best. And lastly, how they create an environment for only a couple of hours where you completely believe what you are watching. To get lost in the moment of such a quality show, time and again, is just the best thing. And all for the price of a 3D cinema ticket.. Live “Light”  entertainment… Long may it continue to pour out of MKTOC. Lucky us I say…”
