It's official. our first production this year at the Arches Theatre will be Romeo and Juliet. The eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted that it was originally to have been Richard III ...
I'm looking forward to the balcony scene at the Arches Theatre when the Wet Mariners perform Romeo and Juliet.

However, The Wet Mariners (the troupe bringing it to the Arches Theatre), who produced the sell out 'As You Like It' last year contacted me last week to let us know of the change. I'm delighted as I can see an interesting balcony scene coming up.
"It's is on the 10th August and is for one night only"
We are still working on the box office system so tickets are not yet on sale, but for those of you who want to come please email me and we will notify you as soon as we have the date for the box office going live. It's worth doing so as we did well out last year within a couple of weeks of tickets going on sale and there are only 130 tickets to sell.
We're encouraging you to get to the venue early and to bring a picnic and enjoy a whole evening knowing you will see a superb show with the added bonus that as you can bring your own drinks and won't be paying theatre booze prices. Now, that's what I call added value.
"Would you like to know more?"
If you'd like to find out more about the 2019 season 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 ...
