Come As You Are…with Bill Leslie & Alex Bradley

Exploring how individuals perceive themselves, Come As You Are engages people in a unique way.

Come As You Are playfully recontextualises the relationship between writer, performer, audience & participant.

Swallows and Amazons Forever! Keswick’s Theatre By The Lake

By Charles Paxton

We saw a superb production of Swallows and Amazons Forever at Keswicks’ Theatre By The Lake yesterday evening. It was well cast and great fun for the whole family.

We loved the rendition of the story and the music :

  • the acting talent – all characters faithful to the original story and suitably vivacious
  • clever use of innovative props
  • the music and sound effects ( all but one produced live by the performers)
  • the scenery
  • the lighting effects (lake ripples very effective)
Scene fom Keswick's Theatre by the lake's performance of Swallows and Amazons

Brilliant use of stage space and innovative props and special effects lighting combined with great acting and musical talent made for a fantastic and memorable performance.

My nephews greatly enjoyed the ice cream in the interval and agreed that the charcoal burners were very nicely portrayed.

All round it is a high quality production and it was great to see it performed in the heart of Lakeland.

Great fun, definitely worth seeing!

Up Front Theatre Presents The Pied Piper Of Hamelin

Magical performance of The Pied Piper of Hamelin at The Upfront Gallery Puppet Theatre

Magical performance of The Pied Piper of Hamelin at The Upfront Gallery Puppet Theatre

Yesterday we greatly enjoyed a family trip to see The Pied Piper Of Hamelin at The Upfront Gallery in Unthank, near Hutton-In-The-Forest. It’s traditional to see a show at Christmas time and everything about this one in the new 128 seat theatre at The Upfront Gallery was very good. I was stunned by the high-end  production value and I hardly saw any strings until the performance was over and there was a fun ‘meet the puppets’ session. The sets and puppets were fantastic and very vibrant – these were based closely on designs from Michael Morpurgo’s book, the voicing was excellent and the music was delightfully evocative.

It’s perfect for families. My nephews particularly loved the donkey and the dynamic action of the rats, which are very spritely and amusing! The Upfront performers were brilliant, I thought, I was surprised that  just five of them emerged when they took their bows.

Very talented rod and string puppeteers of the Upfront Gallery in Unthank taking their bows.
