The Arches Theatre: Local Musicians Wanted!
Send us your demo ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 14/05/2019 @ 8:00AM
To add to our audiences' experience and the ambience at The Arches Theatre this summer, we'd like to introduce live music to our August programme ...
You could be playing at The Arches Theatre before each show!
As big believers of supporting local people and businesses, we feel showcasing new, emerging home-grown artists will only add to the evening for our guests and will benefit the performers too.
We are looking for local musicians, singers or bands who would be interested in playing a 30-minute set, preferably acoustic, whilst patrons enjoy their picnics prior to the live theatre performances.
The live music will take place at The Arches Theatre from 7 - 7.30pm. Dates available are as follows:
Thursday 15th August - The Pink Panther: A Shot in the Dark
Friday 16th August - The Pink Panther: A Shot in the Dark
Saturday 17th August - The Pink Panther: A Shot in the Dark
Thursday 22nd August - The Taming of the Shrew
Friday 23rd August - The Taming of the Shrew
Saturday 24th August - The Taming of the Shrew
You could be playing to up to 120 theatregoers each night.
Your name/logo will appear on The Arches Website, and you will have the opportunity to sell your CDs and other merchandise on the night you play.
If you believe your music would fit our theatre performances and you would be happy to volunteer your time, please do give me a call on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and let's listen to your demo.
Until next time ...
