It's really shaping up now ...

So, onward goes the march towards the opening of the Arches Theatre on the 4th August this year. We've been working hard on the site though I need to turn my attention to other matters today ...
We are preparing the site and working out what we need to put on a production at the Arches Theatre.

I'm off to check on the artwork for the publicity and then having a meeting with one of the actors from 'As You Like It' down at the Arches to check what is required in the way of lighting, sound and everything else that goes with a production like this.
"We are also pacing out how many people we can get in."
This is so I can get a definitive size of the audience. I know we're good for 100, but there may be a possibility of more. Currently, we have sold 75, and bear in mind this performance is for 1 night only, so do get in if you want one.
Tickets are £10 each and we will send out all details with the tickets once they're printed. That's it for this week as I've got to go off to sort out the surface materials for the venue. It's really shaping up now.
"Would you like to know more?"
If you'd like to find out more about the Arches Theatre and our first production in August, then do give me a call on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and let's see how I can help you.
Until next time ...
