The Arches Theatre: The First Performance Has Sold Out!
Now we're thinking of the future ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 03/07/2018 @ 8:00AM
So, we're now getting near the stage with the Arches Theatre, where we can photograph it almost completed and work out hire rates for companies who wish to come and use the venue ...
The Arches Theatre is nearly there and we're thinking of hire rates now.
We're not quite finished yet, as you can see by the photo. We're just putting up fencing and a gate and completing the groundworks, but by the end of the week, we will be there.
"Our first performance is sold out"
For the production of 'As You Like It' on the 4th August, we will use the far right arch as the bar, and the 2nd from the right as the acting area and the two others won't be in official use, but obviously portable loos and generators are required and they will be placed along there.
The seating which is a 'Bring Your Own Chair' affair will be outside looking into the arch, so the weather is our only possible problem, but as I've said to everyone, we can guarantee that the performance will go on, the bar will be open and we'll have a splendid time, but we are keeping our eye on the weather and cagoules will be available if it's piddling down with rain.
Once it is finished we will be able to market it and will, of course, keep you informed of any developments and other productions we are planning.
"Would you like to know more?"

Until next time ...
