As outdoor theatre restarts, look out for exciting tales of Vampires, the 1715 Jacobite Uprising and Mack the Knife brought to you by Kendal Community Theatre who will be performing on:
Friday 21st, Friday 28th 2pm & Sunday 30th August 1.30pm at the Castle Street Centre, Kendal, LA9 7AD
Sunday 23rd August 3pm at The Studio, Morland CA10 3AZ,
At the beginning of the pandemic lockdown, Kendal Community Theatre made the decision to continue rehearsing for their forthcoming production of Brecht’s satire The Threepenny Opera and fifteen actors and their director Chris Taylor meet once a week. They mastered the art of singing accompanied by long distance viola, directed themselves in small groups in ‘breakout rooms’ and learnt how to move and present themselves on Zoom.
Kendal Community Theatre will perform vampire tales by Celeste Bonfanti, Laura Carter, and Emily Unia, first produced in 2019, and three tales about the 1715 Jacobite rebellion from Anne Banks, Jill Clough and John Scott, commissioned by Chris Hogg, Mayor of Kendal, in 2015. Their finale will be scenes and songs featuring Mack the Knife from The Threepenny Opera, a tale of gangsters, low life and corruption with love (just about) triumphing.
Tales in Lockdown Street Theatre is funded by the generosity of Kendal Town Council, and, through Cumbria Community Foundation, the Westmorland Arts and Holehird Trust.
