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.)

Four Jesus Christ Superstar sell outs

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.

This is why FCT is what FCT is…

Tonight’s dress rehearsal for The Chess Game was fantastic.  We need an audience now as Vic eloquently put it and tomorrow night we get one.  Not as big an audience as we’d like but an audience.

But this picture taken at the dress sums up what the whole thing is about.

We’re all dead proud of our gang.  Adults and kids alike .  Because so many people make so much effort for no personal gain.

Other than to say.  I helped make this photo happen.

Look at those faces and that commitment. Oggy Oggy Oggy...

I think a special thanks to Vic Laing and Kirsty Shaw is in order.

Ragtime

FCT present the Scottish premiere of Ragtime.

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.
