The Arches Theatre: Planning For 2019
Three productions already booked ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 01/01/2019 @ 8:00AM
We had our initial production of As You Like It at the Arches Theatre over the summer. The Wet Mariners put on a hugely successful show, and we are now working on the 2019 season ...
We're planning the 2019 season for the Arches Theatre and have three productions booked already.
Amy Marchant and The Wet Mariners will be back to open the season and given their success in August, it should be another sell-out evening. And do you remember Peter Sellers?
"I have the rights to produce The Pink Panther Strikes Again"
I am currently casting and will be a Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy production, and ETC Theatre Company are taking a week with one of their own productions. Last year they produced a hugely successful show with Spamalot, so we have at least three productions booked in already.
This venue is a totally non-funded project, and if anyone is interested in sponsoring the Arches Theatre, we will give full publicity to your company and a lot of fun into the bargain.
We are still finishing the venue and are looking at a cover for the audience (in case of rain) and a permanent roadway for ease of getting disabled people to the site, so all sponsorship will be appreciated.
Our season runs from the start of August to the end of September so come and have a coffee and we can chat over any possibilities.
If you'd like to find out more about hosting your own production at the Arches Theatre 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 ...
