The good people from the Boaty Theatre Company are back with news about their next production.
There’s “Much Ado” at the Museum!
A site-specific outdoor production of “Much Ado About Nothing” will be taking place at the National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port, this summer.
The Boaty Theatre Company return to the museum to deliver what we all hope will be yet another successful adaptation of a classic play and an immersive treat for their audiences.
This extraordinary adaption of William Shakespeare’s greatest romantic comedy will run for only two days; 8th and 9th August 2013. Due to the short run, ticket numbers are limited and are expected to be in high demand following the incredible success of “The Tempest”, performed at the museum earlier this year.
Theatrical Practitioner and Director, Laura J Harris said: “Following the huge success of our steampunk adaptation of “The Tempest” we were all very keen to find a new project and not allow the positive momentum to drop.
“I’m pleased to say that we have continued to grow as a performance theatre company, attracting new players to our cast, as well as our behind-the-scenes crew, composers and musicians. We are always looking for people to get involved in our energetic and immersive performance projects and I would encourage anyone who has an interest in any aspect of performance-work or theatrical work to get in touch.
“We always like to do things a little bit differently at the Boaty; to put a new spin on a great classic. The twist we’ve taken with “Much Ado About Nothing” is to ground it within a Post-Apocalyptic reality. Think “The Walking Dead” and “Resident Evil” and you should start to get a feel for the world our characters are living in when the play begins. As always, we are using Shakespeare’s original text as far as possible.”
Tickets are on sale now and are priced at £4 for Adults and £3 for Concessions. They are available from the museum reception, via phone 0151 355 5017 or through The Boaty Theatre Company’s Website: http://theboatytheatrecompany-com.webs.com.
