Mr Keith & his Mini Orchestra

Price:-               £11.00 Concession £10, Child £6 (£1 reduction for all classes if purchased in advance)
Date of Event:-   Friday 29th September
Time of Event:- 7:30pm
Venue:-            Humphrey Perkins Community Centre


We are delighted that Barrow has been successful in its bid for three Centre Stage events this year. The first is A Parlour Concert with Mr Keith's mini orchestra on Friday September 29th starting at 7:30pm in Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, LE12 8JU.

The show welcomes you on an intimate journey by flickering candlelight using expertly crafted songs, stories and humour to draw a picture of a forgotten era. Expect songs that will make you laugh, sing and even cry. Find yourself remembering first loves, lost loves and time gone by. The gifted Mister Keith, ably assisted by his small “orchestra” of multi-instrumentalists will introduce you to the Victorian Parlour concert. Expect to play your part as you sing in his choir or help him create new songs and stories in front of your eyes.

Tickets can be bought from the Paper Shop or the library in Barrow or by Paypal  (you don’t need a Paypal account; just use your card). Bought in advance of the show they cost £10, £9 (concessions) and £5 (children under 16).  With the feel of cabaret, you can enjoy our well stocked bar while you watch the show. Disabled access is good, parking is a doddle and the venue is warm and inviting. This must be the way to enjoy professional touring theatre.

The Sound Of Mu…rder by Andy Hawkes

If you've ever wondered about the relationships that exist within a drama troupe, this year's murder mystery is for you. Behind the glittering costumes and the bright smiles what goes on? How do the actors’ personal lives effect their performance? Well, it goes without saying that the Murder Mystery teams are, year on year, groups of loving individuals who pull together and support one another through thick and thin. This year’s group is no different so why not come along to witness just how well we’re pulling together and see if you can spot any flaws!

The Sound of Mu...rder by Andy Hawkes is about an amateur group rehearsing the Sound of Music which gives you the ideal opportunity to dress to impress in your dirndls and your lederhosen, your nun’s habits and your Nazi uniforms… or something else (a lonely goatherd?)

The show is on:
Friday 6th October 2017, 7:30pm at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, Barrow LE12 8JU.
Tickets are £12 each which includes a two course ploughman’s supper and the chance to interrogate the suspects. Available from The Paper Shop, The Library and by Paypal.
Come along to have all of your questions answered...
