Join us at the Playhouse and be part of this historic broadcast.</p> <p><strong>The Live Broadcast Experience – All You Need To Know</strong></p> <p>As this performance is being broadcast live globally there will be cameras in the auditorium. There will be 360 degree filming which will result in audience members being filmed and appearing on screen. By attending you are agreeing to being filmed and appearing in the broadcast. </p> <p>Views of the Stage<br /> Views of the stage from some seats may be restricted at any time during the performance.</p> <p>• Seats which will have a restricted view throughout the whole performance are priced at £6.<br /> • Seats which may have a restricted view during certain parts of the performance are priced at £12.<br /> • Seats which have a full and unrestricted view of the stage are priced at their usual standard price.</p> <p>As this performance is a live recording, there is a possibility that we might ask you to move seats prior to the performance so that your view is not obstructed.</p> <p><strong>Tickets and Access</strong><br /> All tickets and discounts are subject to availability. If you require level access to the auditorium, or have any other questions about the performance, filming or seat availability, please call Box Office on 0115 941 9419.</p> <p>All audience members must be seated by 6.45pm.

Production Company: Lost Dog presents

Duration: Running time: 75 mins

Age Rating: Age 13+


<p><strong>Lost Dog’s</strong> new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well, they lived at least. Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.</p> <p>With <strong>Lost Dog’s</strong> blend of dance, theatre and comedy this duet, directed by Olivier Award-nominated <strong>Ben Duke</strong>, takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity. <strong>Juliet &amp; Romeo</strong> is co-commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, The Place and Warwick Arts Centre. The work is funded by Arts Council England via Grants for the Arts. Production time supported by Lancaster Arts and development time supported by Oval House through FiRST BiTES. Ben Duke is a Work Place artist.</p> <p>Age recommendation: 13+</p> <p>Approx. running time: 75 minutes</p> <p>“Pure pleasure. Smart, subversive and sexy.”★★★★★ The Guardian</p> <p>“Superb.

Dancing England

Saturday 26 January 2019 at 6.30pm

Tickets: £17.50 (Concs £12.50)


<p>A Glimpse of Spring in the Depths of Winter with Dancing England’s Dance Extravaganza </p> <p><strong>Dancing England</strong> is bringing the best in traditional dance to the Nottingham Playhouse stage this coming January for an extravaganza of English culture that will be a sight to behold – even for many who think they know what traditional dance is all about. Blending together the history of our Sceptred Isle, its emotions and stories, combined with traditional English folklore, this event will present true English dance and music to a wider audience. </p> <p>Attendees can expect a marvellous concoction of Englishness. We’ve brought together such things as Carnival Morris; a pom-pom, tiptoed spectacle, to counterpoint the bedlam of Herefordshire’s wild and wondrous Border Morris. Cotswold Morris brings the vibes of the summer’s village fete to the stage, whilst the discipline and quasi-militaristic lines and power of the North West Clog Morris will blow you away. </p> <p>Look out for Heraldry coming to life as the giant 16th Century Snap the Dragon and its Whifflers from Norwich accompanies our distinguished guests, and then wanders about the Playhouse keeping all in order. Also, on show will be the oldest recorded dance tradition in Europe when the unique Abbots Bromley Horn Dancers take the stage. </p> <p>And how could we forget the award-winning English sword dancing teams? They will dazzle you with their flashing blades of steel. The out-of-work Molly-dancing Plough Boys from East Anglia demanding money with menaces? Or the Lancashire cloggers rattling out the complex rhythms of the old cotton mills?</p> <p>Not only do you get all the breathtaking action on stage, but the whole event comes together during the day with workshops, exhibitions, films, music, craft stalls, merchandise and downright oddities. </p> <p>If you want to experience an onstage celebration of all things English, and you want to get a true feel for what traditional English dance and indeed traditional English culture is all about, this is the event for you. Not only will you witness historical/authentic dance styles, but there are incredible stories that intertwined them. Experience how miners and workers entertained themselves before the Great War and see how the changing seasons and the working week were marked and celebrated in the form of dance and music. </p> <p>Watch our musicians and dancers tell the story of our industrial and rural history and heritage. You will not find a stage show like this anywhere else in the UK. </p> <p>On Saturday 26th January 2019, starting at 6.30pm, for one night only, you will experience a glimpse of spring in the depths of winter, whose brightness and colour could spark a new interest that continues to bloom throughout the new year.</p> ]]>

Production Company: Ambassador Theatre Group presents


<p>A message from Ian McKellen:</p> <p>I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.</p> <p>Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the <span class="caps">RSC</span>, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions.</p> <p>I was part of the first company which opened the Playhouse in 1963, before I’d ever worked in London. It will be thrilling to be back with my new solo show of anecdote and acting. Including the reprise of one of my youthful performances in Nottingham. All profits will benefit free participatory activity for children in the most deprived areas of Nottingham in particular <span class="caps">SHINE</span> free youth theatres and 50:50 free ticket scheme. See you there, I hope!</p> <p><span class="caps">IAN</span> McKELLEN ON <span class="caps">STAGE</span> is presented by Ambassador Theatre Group</p> <p><a href="https://www.nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk/membership"><img src="/files/images/applicationfiles/1156.3604.PlayhousePassGeneral/400x400.fitdown.jpg" alt="" /></a><br /> Playhouse Pass members save 25% on this event for the first 7 days on sale!
