night at the theatre

Night at the Theatre is set around three friends becoming trapped in a theatre… this inspired us to think about what we would do!

We asked some of The Garage staff what they would take on an adventure, and what they would do if they were locked in our theatre!

 

Carrie Mansfield, Creative Director

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack? 
My phone, my phone charger, my kindle, a pillow, a snuggly throw, a penknife, a hairbrush, a hat, a waterproof, a notebook, a pencil case with pens & pencils, my camera.

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre? 
Turn on the theatre lights and play around with shadows on the theatre walls.

 

Adam Yaxley, Youth arts worker

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack? 
Vests. Lots of vests and flip flops and walking boots that’s pretty much all you need in life. Oh I almost forgot, some mixed nuts - they have to be mixed.

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre?  
Sleep and dream about all the amazing performances I don’t seem to get round to watching that I know I should do.

 

Scott Atkins, Street Dance Tutor/Venue Services Co-ordinator/Production Manager

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack? 
Tinned food, wind-up torch, rope, matches, warm clothes.

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre? 
Search for a water source, find something to make a bed with/blankets, make a map of the building and search for supplies.

 

Shelly Webb, Operations Lead

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack? 
A camera to record the memories.

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre? 
Sleep & enjoy the peace- having 3 children means you don’t get much of either!

 

Angela Perry, PA

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack?  
Swiss Army Knife, dried banana, nuts, water

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre? 
Practice singing, try on some costumes and sleep probably

 

Clara Wiseman, Outreach Coordinator

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack? 
Ukulele and toothbrush.

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre? 
Locate the bar.

 

Adam Taylor, Executive Director

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack?
Pocket knife, torch and a packet of mints

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre?
Make my own shadow puppet play…

 

Daniel Burgess, Artistic Director for All-In Productions & Drama Tutor for The Garage.

If you were going on an adventure, what would you pack?
I was a scout, so ready for anything is my motto....so it would have to be a survival kit, with a first aid kit, food, ways to make water safe to drink; as who knows what will happen on this adventure.

What would you do if you found yourself locked in the theatre?
As a theatre maker, I'd love to be locked in a theatre, I'd have to say that I would probably start creating a show.

 

Combining a mixture of dance theatre, audio-description and imaginative storytelling, Night at the Theatre is an accessible performance for everyone. If you love an adventure, come along and let your imagination go wild as you join the cast in discovering the amazing things that can happen at the theatre.

So come along, join in and let’s make a dance!
