As You Like It at The Arches Theatre
Tickets are selling out fast ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 12/06/2018 @ 8:00AM
As you can see, the digger has now moved in at the Arches Theatre. This is to clear the stones and level the ground before we put the hard surface down ...
We've got the digger in at the Arches Theatre.
Last week's blog post mentioned the first production, which is Shakespeare's As You Like It performed by The Wet Mariners, a touring theatre company who include in their troupe my pal Amy Marchant. They're a brilliant troupe.
Amy has just finished a national tour with A Midsummer Nights Dream and was in Shakespeare In Love in London.
As a result of just this one blog post, we sold 50 tickets and as we think we can only get 100 people in, please contact me quickly if you want tickets yourself. They're £10 each.
We haven't even handed out any flyers or put posters up yet so to be honest, given it's just about two months away, it will definitely sell out. The tickets haven't even been printed, but as soon as they are we will invoice you and send them out.
Full details will be sent out along with the tickets ... so do come along. This is the opening night of a fantastic new venue and you don't want to miss the chance to be part of it.
"Would you like tickets?"
If you'd like to book tickets for the first production at the Arches Theatre, do give me a call on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and I'll put them aside for you.
Until next time ...
