This year’s Fringe sees our first ever staging of Sister Act. The musical beloved of all Whoopi Goldberg fans. Directed by Charlie West and Choreographed by Natasha Rose with Musical Direction from Gus Harrower it’s something of an FCT dream team.
Details on how to buy tickets can be found to the right of this post.
As rehearsals reach a high point it’s time to plan your ticket buying for Pippin.
Remember, each and every one of FCT’s last 37 performances has sold out and this show is yet another cracker. We’ve already sold well over 1/3rd of our tickets directly through cast members, but you can get yours direct from The Fringe Office (or their website) it’s a really slick site so don’t be alarmed.
Alternatively you can wait until July 3rd when our Ticket Hotline opens. The number of that is shown in the poster above.
Expect a dramatic new stage setting for this show. It really will blow you away.
Many of our patrons enjoy seeing our shows twice (and at the start of our ten show run and once at the end) to see how the show develops (just saying) but you’ll need to be quick to get late run tickets, they’re always the first to go.
Pippin is another fine Stephen Schwartz play (Godspell, Working and Wicked are all his shows) so you can be sure of good tunes and with Hayley Scott directing, Gus Harrower MDing and Natasha Rose choreographing you’ll have three FCT alumni making magical music all week long. (And Claire Stewart is never far away, acting as their mentor.)
Seussical is a triumph. We sold out on opening night and again tonight. We couldn’t have squeezed another body into the wonderful Pleasance Theatre. (Have we mentioned how truly wonderful this theatre is and how brilliant the staff are Chris and Tom in particular. No? well they’re magic.)
Friday night is approaching sell out so get your orders into the hotline quick but there is still availability on Saturday strangely.
Alice, Niall and Steph have done an incredible job in their first ever FCT show and they really are part of the #FCTfam now. We love them all.
After a tough year financially last year this looks like getting us well back on track (which is just as well as we had to spend a lot replacing the doors at Bangholm this week. Thanks to Rene for sorting that.)
Seriously, you need to see this show. Don’t be the one in awkward conversations where people say “Remember Seussical” and you say. “That’s so annoying I never went but I went shopping instead.”
And one last thing. We need a poll. WE haven’t had one for ages. So fill this one in…
We don’t have a production team for our Easter 2013 show which, as yet, is not chosen.
So, if you have experience of directing musical theatre groups and are qualified to work with young people we could really do with your help.
We would welcome all ideas for shows with one stipulation. It must be Musical Theatre.
We are booked to appear at The Pleasance Theatre in April next year and rehearsals would begin in early January 2012. Please share this with anyone you know who you might think would be interested in leading a production with this massively talented group of young performers.
