TAKE A RUG – IT’S FRANKENSTEIN
The parklands of Lytham Hall are in ideal condition as Frankenstein takes to the stage on Saturday for the third open air play of the season.
Despite the unseasonable August weather the theatre lawn is dry and the majestic 200 year old beech trees will provide excellent shelter for the expected full house of 500 theatre enthusiasts.
Theatre organiser Julian Wilde is delighted with the forecast of a sunny evening and the prospect of a capacity audience.
“All the hard work put into draining and tidying the lawns and woodlands during the winter by a host of volunteers has really paid off and our audience should have a superb experience. Gates will open for picnickers at 5.30 and tickets will be on sale at the gate.
My advice is to bring a rug – it will keep you warm later on the evening and you can also hide under it, as I understand that The Monster is simply huge and very frightening. I think the audience will be surprised that the show is a musical which has had rave reviews from venues all over the country in the past three weeks.”
Summer touring company Illyria will travel down to Lytham from Aberdeen where they are performing on Friday evening and will be led by Edward Simpson making his eight appearance with the company at Lytham Hall where his previous roles have included KoKo in The Mikado and last summer the title role in the Adventures of Dr. Dolittle
