Crash Bang Wallop Youth Theatre return to Northallerton Forum with their summer show, the very lively, very funny, very pink ‘Legally Blonde’.
Sassy, fashionable socialite Elle Woods is shocked to her core when, instead of proposing to her, as eagerly anticipated, her boyfriend, Warner Huntington III informs her that she is not serious enough to be part of his life plan: he is heading for Harvard Law School, and expects to become a senator by the age of thirty, and she just does not fit!
Encouraged by her college friends, who pop up from time to time like a frilly and hilarious Greek chorus, Elle decides to challenge him, and in so doing, discovers that there is a lot more to life, and to herself, than she realised.
Crash Bang Wallop Youth Theatre’s shows are always met with much enthusiasm and praise, and they recently won a NODA Youth Award for their production of ‘West Side Story’.
Comments from their last show, ‘Spamalot’, include:
“such talent, professionalism and energy from the whole cast and crew”,
“I’ve never laughed so much at a live show”,
“such fab comic timing, had the whole audience in stitches”,
“the obvious enjoyment and confidence of the cast is plain to see”, and “can’t wait for the next production”.
In January this year, Northallerton Variety Company lost two stalwarts who had meant a lot to them. Diane Henry died unexpectedly and Wendy Reed died after a brave fight against cancer. To celebrate the lives of these two lovely people "Music and Laughter" is being staged on Sunday 16th July at 2 pm as a tribute to them both. Groups that they had been involved with are coming together to put on great afternoon's entertainment. This will feature Northallerton Musical Theatre Company, Dancers dancing to the music of Glenn Miller, the Allerton Players with their successful entry to the Saltburn Festival, the Northallerton Variety Company Concert Group - both adults and juniors, the Northallerton Methodist Church Choir, and all your favourites from the Variety Company's popular pantomime staging a short version of "Dick Whittington and his Cat
All proceeds will be donated to "Wendy's Wish" (for research into eye tumours) and "The Friends of the Dales School - Hydrotherapy Pool".
Rural Arts’ ‘Arts On Your Doorstep’ and The Forum present
THE TIES THAT BIND by Skimstone Arts
The Ties That Bind tells a story of how Paul’s world as a sound engineer is changing and now he’s recording his own life – before it shifts for ever.
The early stages of dementia and memory loss can fray our personal relationships, however, Paul is forced to confront how he can remain connected to those who care about him. This touching performance asks, what ultimately binds us to others? What new stories can we weave that enable us to release old friends and join new ones?
An uplifting combination of physical performance, sound and potent visuals revealing the meaning of music in Paul’s life.
Carers or essential companions will receive a complimentary ticket.
This matinee performance is open to everyone. People over 75, people living with dementia and their family, friends and carers are particularly welcome. The performance will take place in an easy-going environment with a relaxed attitude to audience responses and movement in the auditorium.
Complimentary tea and biscuits will be served after the performance with the opportunity to share your thoughts on the show with the cast and company over a friendly and informal cuppa.
About ‘Arts On Your Doorstep’
