Live & Local staff give their top picks from the new season of shows

Can’t decide which shows to see this spring? Some of the Live & Local office team reveal what they’re most looking forward to this season:

John our Director can’t wait to see The Way of the Drum by the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers: “Mugenkyo have to be one of the most exciting and dynamic groups we have ever used. I won’t ever forget being in the front row at a village hall where they first used their largest drum about 10 feet away from where I sat and I could feel my chest vibrating. And yet they also have a delicate and gentle side to their music.”

Sarah our Marketing Officer’s top pick is The Lion Tamer: “I’ve only heard great things about Bash Street Theatre and I want to see them for myself. I also have fond memories of the circus as a child and have recently discovered all those silly silent comedy routines by Buster Keaton so I think this will be a match made in my theatre heaven!”

Suzanne, our Administration and Marketing Assistant chose Eddie and the Gold Tops by Badapple Theatre Company: “Set in the 1960s, this humorous theatre show looks certain to be a great night out! Eddie the Milkman is dreaming of musical stardom but life just keeps getting in his way…!”

Carly our Marketing Assistant is looking forward to Spaghetti Swing: “Somehow it seems most exciting watching international shows; getting an insite into their take on rural touring…and with gypsy jazz and pasta thrown in too, everyone is a winner!”

Emma our Development Officer chose Much Ado about Wenlock: “2012 is perfect timing for this show which celebrates the birth of the modern Olympic Games. I really enjoyed Vamos Theatre’s last production of Nursing Lives and can’t wait to see them again.”
