Keswick Street Theatre
Keswick Street Theatre begins it’s 16th season of bringing the history of Keswick alive on Tuesday 28th May, with performances taking place at 7.30pm on Tuesday evenings for the next 7 weeks.
Each week the audience will enjoy 10 short scenes of "potted pantomime", depicting snippets of the towns’ history in a unique and humorous style during this walking tour of the town centre. Two new scenes will be included in this year’s season – “The Abraham Brothers”, and “Silent Movie” – both written by Bob Bryden. These new scenes will be performed every week from 4th June onwards.
Another change for this season is that the role of Town Crier will be “swapped”, with Graham Simons now taking on responsibility for the role, and Bob Bryden standing in as “reserve” where necessary.
All of the Street Theatre scenes are staged by a number of local amateur actors, who bring to life a variety of local characters spanning the past 450 years. Performances will take place every Tuesday until the 9th July. Whilst there is no need to pre-book (tickets are £3.00 per adult, accompanied children free), tickets this year can be purchased in advance from Keswick Tourist Information Centre.
All profits from Keswick Street Theatre are donated to charity, and following last year’s collections, cheques will be presented in June to Pets Lifeline, and also the appeal for Keswick BMX Track.
