Open Air Theatre Presents Alice In Lockdown at Newham Grange

By Published August 01, 2020

MIDDLESBROUGH Theatre is proud to announce that Outdoor Theatre is back and heading to Newham Grange Farm on Friday, August 7.

Heartbreak Productions have created a socially-distant and safe family show, Alice in Lockdown, to appeal to audiences of all ages.

After the government's announcement that open-air theatre could resume the Heartbreak team jumped straight into action and created a bespoke script to be safe, socially-distant, and family-oriented.

The show is Heartbreak's take on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, only this Alice ventures through the Lockdown Looking Glass, exploring a curious world filled with Cheshire Cats, White Rabbits and Red Queens, all while keeping a safe distance of two metres and using PPE to do her shopping.

Whether battling Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum for the last loo roll or attending the Mad Hatter's tea party via Zoom, Alice's socially-distanced adventures are the perfect antidote to the stay-at-home blues. So away with the quarantinis!

Pack the picnic and join Heartbreak Productions for this open-air performance of Alice in Lockdown at Newham Grange Farm on Friday, August 7 at 6pm.

Tables and seating will be provided and suitably-distanced from each other. Please do not bring your own tables & chairs…but do bring warm clothing just in case!

Refreshments are available and you are welcome to bring your own picnic. Gates open half an hour before performance times.

Tickets are limited and not available on the gate…and performances will only be cancelled in the event of a hurricane!

The perfect summer treat for all the family!

Tickets are £12.50 and available from the Box Office on 01642 81 51 81 or 01642 729 729 or can be booked online at www.middlesbroughtheatre.co.uk
