SHAKESPEARE’S The Tempest is given a new exciting look by the Movement Theatre Company.
Drawing on the narrative styles of the Commedia Dell’ Arte and combining stunning masks, live music, dance and puppetry, this promises to be a fantastic evening’s entertainment at the Broadbent Theatre in Wickenby and is suitable for all the family.
Director Ben Blyth showed his love of acting and Shakespeare when he joined the Broadbent Youth Theatre and made his debut in 2002 on the Broadbent stage as Peter Simple in The Merry Wives of Windsor.
He studied GCSE drama and A-Level theatre studies at William Farr Comprehensive School in Welton before leaving for Cambridge and Corpus Christi College, from where he graduated last year.
Now the Broadbent Theatre is pleased to welcome him back with The Movement, his company of talented actors and winners of Cambridge University’s Thomas Nashe award, The Cambridge Student Play of the Year 2009, and a place on the shortlist for the RSC Other Prize.
This young company has even drawn comparison with the Royal Shakespeare Company (The Stage) and has been recently featured by the Arden Shakespeare.
Tickets cost £8, £6.50 concessions, and are available from www.broadbent.org or the box office on 01673 885500.
