The Weobley Theatre Goers started in July 2005, since when we have gone to 8 or 9 productions a year. These are usually trips to Malvern, but also to Birmingham, Cardiff or Cheltenham. You can dip in and out of the trips as you like; the cost of the coach is included in the price and, for trips other than Malvern, there is time to look around the city centres or shop before going to the theatre. And speaking of shops, we occasionally have a shopping trip in the autumn which is a good opportunity to get ahead of Christmas.
Everyone is welcome. For information look at the Weobley Website or in Magpie, the Weobley magazine or ring Kate Best 01544 318513.
Kiss Me, Kate is our next trip to the Cardiff Millennium Theatre on Thurs 8 Dec, leaving Bell Square, Weobley at 10.00 for the 2.30 performance, and returning around 7.30pm. There are some wonderful shows coming up for 2017 and I have booked the following:
Now for something uplifting in February, I have reserved seats for Dreamboats and Petticoats at the New Theatre in Cardiff for Saturday 18 February leaving Bell Square, Weobley at 10.00 am for the 2.30pm performance. This theatre is near the shops, so will give you the opportunity to go shopping or to find something to eat. The cost is £40 to be paid before 5 December please. Seats are in the circle rows C, D, E and F.
On 9 March we shall be going to Birmingham again to see Billy Elliot. If you would like to be on the cancellation list please let me know. This is leaving Weobley at 9.30 for the 2.00pm performance.
Then on Wed 10 May we shall be going to see Funny Girl at the Birmingham Hippodrome, leaving Bell Square at 9.30am for the 2.00 pm performance. You may well have heard all the rave reviews about this show with Sheridan Smith – I doubt she will be in this touring show, but her understudies have been amazing too, so hopefully this will be a show to remember. The tickets are all in the circle front rows and will cost £57 to be paid before 12 December and within 2 weeks of reserving please.
Book early as I think these tickets will go very quickly.
Also reserved for next year is War Horse, which we are going to on request of one of our Theatre Goers, who has already seen it and wants to go again. We went before in October 2013, but I am sure there are some of you who didn’t get to see it – or like me would like to see it again. It is on its final tour after leaving the West End. Payment for this doesn’t have to be made until next year, so I will let you know about that nearer the date, but if you would like to pencil the trip into your calendars it will be on Thurs 19 October 2017 at Bristol Hippodrome, the nearest of its touring theatres to us with seats again in the circle and the stalls.
