Live & Local staff give their top picks from the new season of shows

Can’t decide which shows to see this spring? Some of the Live & Local office team reveal what they’re most looking forward to this season:

John our Director can’t wait to see The Way of the Drum by the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers: “Mugenkyo’s return to the scheme is a real coup for Live & Local. They have to be one of the most exciting and dynamic groups we have ever used. I won’t ever forget being in the front row at a village hall where they first used their largest drum about 10 feet away from where I sat and I could feel my chest vibrating. And yet they also have a delicate and gentle side to their music.”

Sarah our Marketing Officer’s top pick is The Lion Tamer: “I’ve only heard great things about Bash Street Theatre and I want to see them for myself. I also have fond memories of the circus as a child and have recently discovered all those silly silent comedy routines by Buster Keaton so I think this will be a match made in my theatre heaven!”

Suzanne, our Administration and Marketing Assistant chose Eddie and the Gold Tops by Badapple Theatre Company: “Set in the 1960s, this humorous theatre show looks certain to be a great night out! Eddie the Milkman is dreaming of musical stardom but life just keeps getting in his way…!”

Carly our Administration Assistant is looking forward to Spaghetti Swing: “Somehow it seems more exciting watching international shows; getting an insite into their take on rural touring…and with gypsy jazz and pasta thrown in too, everyone is a winner!”

Emma our Development Officer chose Much Ado about Wenlock: “2012 is perfect timing for this show which celebrates the birth of the modern Olympic Games. I really enjoyed Vamos Theatre’s last production of Nursing Lives and can’t wait to see them again.”

Vicki our Derbyshire Fieldworker is looking forward to seeing Heretique at Hollingwood Hub near Chesterfield on the 7th March: “I’m a big French folk music fan so it will be facinating to hear the band’s fusion of English and French melodies. Formidable! I’m also excited about seeing the show in Chesterfield’s interesting new canalside venue…with beautiful narrow boats just outside the door!”
