High Praise for Sister Act!

We knew we had a great show in our hands, but the real test is always the reaction of the theatre-going public, so we have been thrilled to see and hear that our audiences have enjoyed the show so much.  Thanks to everyone who’s taken the time to feed back to us!!

Here are some of our amazing reviews:

Back in the habit with ‘Sister Act’!

We loved being nuns in ‘The Sound of Music’ so much that we’re doing it all over again! But this time there will be no lederhosen or edelweiss in sight.  Instead we head across the Atlantic to San Francisco where crime witness (and disco diva) Doloris Van Cartier needs our help.  In return, life in the convent will never be the same again – expect gospel, rock and roll and a lot of hilarity!  Read the full story here.

Potential soldiers – Your local theatre company needs you!

Following a superb round  of auditions, all of the main roles in our November show, ‘Oh What a lovely War’, have now been cast and we are charging ahead with rehearsals.  However, we could still do with a few more soldiers to strengthen our ranks.

If you think you might fit the bill, why not come and join us in what is going to be a fantastic production, marking the centenary year of the outbreak of World War I?

Please contact us for more information.

What a show that was!

After 6 months of hard work, show week came and went all too quickly, but we can look back fondly on the great camaraderie which we shared, and on the amazing feedback which we received from our audiences.  Thanks to everyone who supported us (whether behind the scenes or in the audience) and helped to make the show such as success.

See here for our fantastic 4-star review!

Cancellation of BSL Sign Language Interpretation

Due to unforeseen circumstances, BSL sign language interpretation will no longer be included within our performance of RENT on Tuesday 13 May.  We have endeavoured to contact all those we are aware of who booked specifically for this facility, and who may require a refund as a result, but if anyone else is affected please contact our ticket secretary (07817 491255 or tickets@arcadians.net) or the Crescent Theatre Box Office, as appropriate, as soon as possible.

Apologies to all theatre-goers who have been disappointed by this change.  We  expect to have the facility back again for our next show in November, so watch this space!
