Belmont Theatre Company Open Day. Sunday 19th February 2017
The current show is a sell out and the cast are really looking forward to the opening night and curtain up on ‘LADIES WHO LUNCH’.
We move into the theatre on Sunday 19th February to build our set and rig the lighting/sound ready for the evening technical rehearsal.
For each show we have an OPEN DAY where people interested in the nuts and bolts of a show can come along to the theatre for a conducted tour. A chance to see the lighting being rigged, the set being built and see the show slowly take shape.
If you are interested then please come along to theatre between the times of 10.00am and 3.00 pm. You will be most welcome and view what is going on, from the Front of House preparations, set building and a view backstage. Tea and Biscuits will be on tap. Be great to see you.
Please email our Chairman, Michael, if you’d like to come along or require further information firstname.lastname@example.org
