A Christmas Cracker – Trailer

Last week we packed Rachel, Gail and a whole menagerie of puppets into the back of a Riding Lights van ready for our Yorkshire tour of  A Christmas Cracker. The show has gone down a storm in primary schools, so we’re very excited for the first public performance this Friday here in York.

We’ve created a trailer to give you a taste of the show, and below that we’ve got a few of the responses from some of the pupils and teachers who’ve seen the show so far.

“We thought that you were outstanding. I really liked how the stories were humourous and entertaining.
The whole play was amazing!”
(Year 4 pupil – Haxby and Wigginton Primary)

“My favourite was Cracker and the shepherds fighting”
“I thought Ebeneezer was really stuck in that ladder!”
(Pupils – Nawton Primary)

“Our kids don’t sit still for more than 5mins, but they were transfixed all the way through!”
(Teacher – Woodthorpe Primary)

“Riding Lights get a good balance, good for the kids but also something for the adults to chuckle at too.”
(Teacher – Nawton Primary)

You can find a full list of public performance on the A Christmas Cracker web page, or if you’re looking for a show further south, Goose Chase is now on tour nationally.

Fantastic Acts! – Audience Response

Fantastic Acts! has been on the road for a week and a half now and we’re continuing to get excellent feedback from those who’ve seen it. But you don’t have to take our word for it – here’s an audience vox pops video…

The show is currently touring the UK with its final performance on the 29th of November. You can find the full list of upcoming performances here – along with the trailer for the show.

Audience reaction to The Alchemist

Tuesday night was press night for The Alchemist, and the Belgrade Theatre captured some of the audience reaction to the show. Do take a look…

We’re also starting to get a few reviews in too. Here’s a couple of our favourite quotes so far:

“A pacey and polished production that demands your fullest attention from start to finish.” 
(Daventry Express)

“The characters are so vibrant, the acting of such quality, that this is an experience that will command your attention while rewarding you amply with laughs.”
(Leamington Courier)

There’s also a fantastic comment from an audience member on the comments section of the Belgrade website (where you can also find out more about the show) Of course, if you’ve seen it yourself, we’d love to hear what you thought too!
