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.

We’re up and running and really rock and rolling.

13 features a great, great band. I have to say that before anything else.

One of our best ever, and this is appropriate because tonight was a tribute night to Fiona Pirrie, one of our (non rock) stalwarts who so tragically passed away last year just after The Chess Game.

She’d have loved it.

We also raised nearly £200 for Maggies Centre on her behalf which, I’m sure, will make her husband Bill very happy.

But tonight was about our cast.

What a magnificent, epic performance.

The comments on leaving were ridiculously positive.

We have a great show, a memorable one, on our hands guys.

Make the most of it.

Sell it to whoever you know because everyone’s going to love this.

 

 

The final rehearsal at Bangholm

It was a long shift yesterday from 12 till 6.30 but boy do we have a show.  In every department, dialogue, movement and singing it’s great.  Really funny throughout with a cracking script.  Tickets are going well so far with nearly 600 sold.  If you want them you can call the ticket hotline on 07794 144 372.  Adults £11.  Concessions £9.  Family ticket of 4 (max 2 adults) for only £30 and we have a cut price matinee where all tickets are £8 on Saturday 7th at 2.30.

Annie Poster unveiled

We are blessed to have such a talented designer as Scott Taylor who has created all of our posters, programmes, flyers and ads,; all free of charge, for several years now.  Ad what’s more he does them all from his studio in The Virgin Islands.

Go Scott, another fantastic poster with Harmony looking fantastic in her full Annie costume.  More masterwork from the costume wifies of Bangholm.
