TWO STUNNING PIECES OF THEATRE FOR THE EASTER HOLDIAYS AT THE POUND
POSTED: 24/03/2016 16:35:34
In the Bellows and Great Scott! Both premier at The Pound arts centre from next week.

Theatre Undertow: In the Bellows Saturday 2 April.
Gonzo Moose: Great Scott! Previews: Thursday 7 & Friday 8 April. Opening Night Saturday 9 April.

Theatre Undertow are developing and performing their brand new work In the
Bellows next week, a storytelling and miniature-theatre piece. A tiny puppet stage unfolds from within a working accordion, and the performances promise folk song, highly-skilled puppetry and beautifully-formed stories.

Undertow will be making two new short-form performances, in a week-long residency at The Pound, Corsham as part of Theatre Fest West. “We want to make an intimate show for small numbers of audience at a time- we’ve designed the pieces so that the audience group can choose between two stories in the actual performance. We want it to feel very bespoke. There will be one story suitable for family audiences, and another for adults”.

The piece is a collaboration between performer and musician Kaile Lucas, puppeteer Nix Wood, puppet-maker Jude Munden, writer Hannah Silva & director Mark Whitaker. In the Bellows is performed at The Pound Saturday 2 April, performance slots 9.45am-11.30am poundarts.org.uk and at the Salisbury Arts Centre also on Saturday 2 April, performance slots 2.45pm-5.30pm salisburyartscentre.co.uk as part of Theatre Fest West.

If you think you know the tragic story of Antarctic explorer, Captain Scott, then think again. The Pound will be previewing a Polar tale with an extra-terrestrial twist from Thursday 7 to Saturday 9 April. Aliens meet giant penguins and frozen beards in this unusual play - and alleged true story!

The highly acclaimed and quirky theatre company, Gonzo Moose, will be debuting their play Great Scott! at the North Wiltshire arts centre. Based on newly discovered ‘evidence’ they will be reconstructing Scott’s last days and reveal the explosive truth about what happened at the bottom of the world in 1912.

Charity Colborne, Marketing Coordinator at Pound Arts said: “Gonzo Moose are such an innovative and anarchic theatre company, and our audiences always enjoy their shows. Their previous interpretations on the life of Charles Dickens and other historical characters have been hilarious. We look forward to another madcap tale – with an icy twist.”

Tickets for Great Scott! Are £12 (£11 concessions) for the preview performances (Thursday 7 & Friday 8 April, 7.30pm) and £14 (£13 concessions) for opening night on Saturday 9 April.

All tickets are available from The Pound’s box office on 01249 701628 / poundarts.org.uk
