The Nuworks Theatre are coming all the way from Australia to perform in Gosforth, so two plays in one evening makes the trip worthwhle. Snow White runs first, there will be a 15 minute interval, then Romeo and Juliet. This promises to be an entertaining, varied and good value evening.
Doors will open at 6:30 for a 7pm start.
Tickets will be £12 (adult), £6 (u18) and £30 (family of 2+2), with all of the proceeds going to charity: Wasdale Mountain Rescue, Gosforth First Responders and the Public Hall itself.
SNOW WHITE: This is our brand new musical adaptation of the tale. Not exactly a panto, it’s a little more sophisticated. It is faithful to the original in most respects: there’s Snow White, the Wicked Queen, and the Huntsman. The seven dwarves have morphed into the Hip Hop Brothers and there’s a few extra characters. There’s a poisoned apple and a Prince and a true loves kiss and a Happy Ever After.
Suitable for the entire family.
Running time 1 hour 10 minutes.
ROMEO AND JULIET: This is pure Shakespeare, heavily edited and recontextualised (set in relatively modern times) but otherwise unchanged to produce a piece of theatre that will appeal to younger and older audiences. It is complemented with a number of contemporary songs from Pink, Coldplay and Muse.
Suitable for audiences above 10 years of age.
Running Time 1 hour 20 minutes
