The lights are about to go up once again at The Green Room Theatre, Wilmslow for the company's opening event of their new season called 'We're OPEN' from 23rd to 25th September.
'We're OPEN' is three different evenings of entertainment to celebrate The Green Room's re-opening later this month with bookings now open for:
Thursday 23 September.
A rehearsed play reading of Alan Ayckbourn's "Confusions", a series of short plays where complications and confusions abound!
Friday 24 September.
A film night with the screening of Jacques Tati's 1953 comic masterpiece Monsieur Hulot's Holiday. When Monsieur Hulot takes a vacation at a beachside hotel havoc ensues in this quirky classic of post-war French cinema, which offers a real opportunity to sit back and enjoy the fun. Running time – 90 mins.
Saturday 25 September.
'Together Again'. A reprise of the Gawsworth Hall outdoor performance celebrating the lifting of restrictions. A mix of sketches, poems and excerpts from plays The Green Room has performed over the years.
Celia Bonner, one of the Directors of 'We're OPEN' commented: 'We are all looking forward to reopening the theatre after 18 months of lockdown and welcoming our audiences back with our 'We're OPEN' event. We wanted to provide a safe and easy way for our audiences to return to the theatre and with short plays by Alan Ayckbourn, a film night and an evening of sketches, poems and excerpts from some of our favourite plays we think that there's something there for everyone.'
Each of the three night's performances starts at 7.45pm and lasts 60 to 90 minutes with no interval. Tickets, priced £5, can be purchased online or from the box office on 01625 540993. Seating will be unreserved.
People are welcome to wear a face covering throughout the show or when moving around the theatre and seating will be unreserved so that people can choose where they sit.
