Theatre Performance to be held at Country Park

Theatre Performance to be held at Country Park in
Shropshire Council is happy to welcome the Rain or Shine Theatre Company to the Severn Valley Country Park with their production of Charles Dickens’ ‘Great Expectations’

Dickens’ Victorian novel of wealth, poverty, love, rejection and conflict is one of the most popular classics of English literature and an enduring tale that has delighted audiences for over 150 years.

This thrilling coming of age tale is one of excitement, amusement, romance and intrigue and is a ‘who is it’, as opposed to a ‘who-dunnit’ as our hero Pip tries to discover the identity of the mysterious benefactor who has funded his early years as he develops into a gentleman.

As part of their national winter tour, the Rain or Shine Theatre Company will be visiting the Severn Valley Country Park on Friday 23rd January 2015. Visitor Centre Manger, Susie Comaish says, “The Rain or Shine Theatre Company visited the park twice during the summer with their performances of ‘Treasure Island’ and ‘The Merchant of Venice’. The Company have been touring with ‘Great Expectations’ since November and have been receiving 5 Star reviews for their excellent re-telling of this classic tale.’

The performance will take place in the visitor centre which will open for refreshments from 6pm. The performance starts 7pm and finishes by 9pm and a 20 minute interval is included.

The performance is suitable for ages from 7 upwards. Booking is essential to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £10 Adults £6 Children. Tickets are available by calling the visitor centre on 01746 781 192 or contacting Rain or Shine direct on 0330 6600541.
