This is the stage debut of the play 'Phantom of The Arts Centre' and is based upon a script which won a big national playwriting competition last year.
The play is about our very own Riverside Arts Centre! It entwines fact with fiction and explores the sacrifices made by people for their community and their country, and also features the heartbreak of wartime romance. It was written by Geoff Buckingham and features some very popular award-winning local performers including Robert Hardy and Paul Warren. The stage set has been crafted and designed by local drama legend Ken Busby, who is still very active into his 80's. The play, which features the lead debut of a super young local actress, Niamh Mallott, is sentimental but does have a few lighter moments.
Also featured, as part of a double bill, is the very popular David Tristram comedy ' The Fat Lady sings in Little Grimley', and this also involves more local favourites.
Manor Players are aiming to put on a really good evening of entertainment, and it would be super if LOSRA members could turn out in force to support it, plus help us celebrate a local building that means so much to our community.
Performances start at 8pm and tickets cost £8 (paid in advance) or £10 on the door. For further details see the attached poster
