Just time to pop in before the Christmas season really kicks in and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
2012 has been a fantastic year for us, thank you for your support in so many ways and to say thank you we are offering two complimentary tickets to our first Third Thursday event, Terry Pratchett's The Fifth Elephant on Thursday 17 January at Progress Theatre. To be in with a chance, please leave a comment on this blogpost and on December 24th at 5pm we will use a magic system to draw a winner from the hat.
Alternatively if you are really struggling for a gift, then attending the Third Thursday may be the answer. Tickets for the show are £10 including a complimentary glass of wine (or soft drink) and a Directors Talk (and no booking fee!)
The Fifth Elephant
by Stephen Briggs. Based on the book by Terry Pratchett
Sam Vimes is a man on the run. Yesterday he was a duke, a chief of police and the ambassador to the mysterious, fat-rich country of Uberwald. Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya. It’s snowing. It’s freezing. And if he can’t make it through the forest to civilization there’s going to be a terrible war. But there are monsters on his trail. They’re bright. They’re fast. They’re werewolves – and they’re catching up. Sam Vimes is out of time, out of luck and already out of breath…
With a cacophony of dwarfs, vampires, werewolves, the odd troll and a talking dog, The Fifth Elephant promises to be great fun for audiences of all ages.
