Four Jesus Christ Superstar sell outs

This is our Fringe sales printout.

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 08.46.13.png

The Fringe has 45 Tickets per night and as you can see three are completely sold out and one night has a single ticket left.  Our opening night or the Monday night is looking your best bet at this stage.  But you can try the FCT Hotline as a few tickets may remain.

We’ve sold nearly 1,500 of our 1,800 tickets and there’s over a month till opening night so expect ten sell outs.

Thank you to all of our extremely generous show sponsors (all shows are taken) and to our generous band of advertisers.

Rehearsals have been incredible.  Spine tingling and the music and movement both defy description.  Surely one of FCTs all time highlights.

High Praise Indeed!

Received today at FCT HQ…..
 
Dear FCT,
 
My sister and I are musical theatre scholars and have worked professionally in the Biz and we agreed that your production was finer in many respects than many professional productions we’ve seen.  After seeing your production of Ragtime last night I felt compelled to write to you to say how utterly impressed my sister and I were and how much we thoroughly enjoyed it.
 
We know Ragime inside out, having closely followed its progress since it lost the Tony to The Lion King in 1998 and all else since. I made it down to London for the premiere production there, and we also saw it at the Fringe a few years ago when the American High School Theatre performed it. We agreed that yours was as good if not better than all of these. We were particularly impressed  by the first-class direction and staging. It displayed a sensitive understanding of the vision of E L Doctorow, Ahrens & Flaherty, McNally et al. I also loved the allusions to the original Broadway production lighting. You moved us and touched us very deeply and we wanted to thank you for giving us this great joy of seeing one of our absolutely favourite musicals live. Sensational! We look forward to seeing many more of your outstanding productions in the future.
 
Very best wishes,
 
Eva and Barbara Spevack

RAGTIME poster
FCT’s 2009 Festival Fringe production is “Ragtime” and will be directed by Andrew Dyer.
Based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow and set in America at the turn of the century, Ragtime tells the story of three groups who are represented by Coalhouse Walker Jr., a Harlem musician; Mother, the matriarch of a WASP family in New Rochelle, NY; and Tateh, a Latvian Jewish immigrant.
This epic musical is filled by these and many other inspirational characters as well as incredible, show-stopping songs in the form of marches, cakewalks, gospel and ragtime.
