Bash Street Theatre - The Station

Bash Street Theatre – The Station

With Easter fast approaching we have cleared the snow off the tracks and started to work up some steam with THE STATION ready to roll for 2009. Having successfully premiered the show at our eight commissioning festivals in 2008, we are now taking bookings throughout the UK and Europe.

A showcase trade fair in Freiburg in February has already brought in a stream of bookings in Germany, and we have also secured a residency at the Dommelhof Theatre, in Neerpelt, Belgium at the end of May. This will be followed by performances at surrounding festivals. We are also returning to the FETA festival in Gdansk, Poland, in July, where we performed CLIFFHANGER! two years ago. With bookings also in the UK, France, Holland and Italy, the diary is fast filling-up, so please contact us as soon as possible with any enquiries.

We are also in the process of fabricating some shipping crates for a proposed trip to South Korea in September, and possibly to China next year, with CLIFFHANGER! – which is all very exciting.

Closer to home, we have just heard that we were successful in our grant application for a small indoor touring show – again on a silent movie theme – which will be touring Cornwall and beyond from November onwards.

But before all that, we have some modifications to make to THE STATION, followed by a few shows in Cornwall in April, and then it’s full steam ahead for Northern Ireland, where we will be performing both THE STATION and CLIFFHANGER! at the Festival of Fools in Belfast on 3rd and 4th May.
