Community Centre Outside 2015

In the last couple of weeks the Community Centre has agreed with Cheshire Rural Touring Arts the shows it will be bringing you in the new spring season.

On Friday March 11th at 6.00pm the younger members of the community will be invited to join the superheroes in a production called Tadpoles. Brought to you by M6 Theatre, who were last seen in Tarvin with the enchanting piece Whatever the Weather, this is the story of Captain Clever and Captain Conker who have to capture tadpoles and save the world....of course!
As usual, Tarvin will be putting on this play along with such great venues as the Birmingham Rep, the Lowry, and the Lyric Hammersmith — and the parking is so much easier in Tarvin!

On Friday April 8th there will be a bit of a different treat for grownups, a show called Bane. This is a one-man, one musician piece following the anti-hero Bruce Bane as he goes about his shadowy business in a fictional American city. Inspired by film and graphic novels there are over 40 characters and only one performer — something completely new to Tarvin. However the show has been widely toured to great acclaim on rural touring networks so I do hope you will take a chance with us to see something completely different.

Last but by no means least. On Monday June 7th a show for the very young called Boxy and Sticky. This is for 2 to 5 year olds and shows the amount of fun you can have with a box and a stick!

Tickets for all these shows will eventually be available on-line — as soon as the promoter can decide on prices. They will of course also be available at the Post Office in due course.

There is one piece of excellent theatre from last season still available. At Kelsall Community Centre on Saturday Jan 16th there will be a performance of It's Wonderful Life, based on the 1926 film starring James Stewart. Tickets are available from Jim Struthers on 01829 751031 or email him on jim.struthers2@gmail.com. It is the custom at Kelsall to take your own drink and refreshments.

Great shows, high standards, keen prices and the guarantee of a great time — who needs the West End when this kind of entertainment can be found in the middle of the community.
