Tickets for Spinning the Moon are now on sale and one person determined not to miss out was Dorchester Mayor Richard Briggs.
He popped into the play office before it even opened on the morning tickets went on sale, and was presented with his by sewing assistant Joy Wallis.
Richard was given a tour of the Antelope Arcade office and was amazed to see the amount of admin and practical work that goes into staging a community play – including making costumes for cast of more than 140 people!
The last time Dorchester staged a community play, Drummer Hodge in 2014, most of the performances sold out rapidly, leaving a lot of people disappointed.
So if you want to see Spinning he Moon, then don’t dither and leave buying your tickets until the last minute!
Spinning the Moon is at Thomas Hardye School from April 6-19, at 7.30pm, with no performances on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
Tickets cost £16 plus concessions and family tickets plus extra concessions on Monday 6, Tuesday 7, Monday 13 & Tuesday 14 April ONLY. They are available from Dorchester Arts Centre, the Corn Exchange, High West Street, Dorchester. Call 01305 266926 or visit dorchesterarts.org.uk for bookings and further details.
The play is performed in a promenade style throughout the auditorium, which means there is very limited seating. If you have specific accessibility requirements or require a seat please contact the arts centre in advance.
The inevitability of postponing Spinning the Moon because of Coronavirus didn’t make the actual announcement any easier....
