The Final Curtain Draws Closer!
The moment is fast approaching when we close the doors to our home in Centenaray Square for two years to begin our first ever off-site programme but we’re not going quietly! To mark this poignant and historic moment we’re holding a very special show in which you, our customers, can play a major part.
The Final Curtain is a unique live show, hosted by BBCWM’s Joanne Malin, which is taking place here at The REP on Saturday 8 January 2011 – the last day the building is open to the public until 2013, our Centenary Year.
Birmingham born writer Steven Camden aka Polarbear has penned a celebratory piece of poetry, inspired by our customers’ memories, which he’ll be performing on stage with members of our youth theatre group, The Young REP. But this show’s not just about you sitting back and watching. You’ll have the chance to perform too as we want the whole audience to take part from their seats!
We’ll also be asking you for your special memories of The REP to go into our exhibition, which we’re taking on the road with us and you could even feature in a short film clip to appear on our website by telling us your favourite stories about The REP. We’ll be offering backstage tours as well and this really will be your last chance to get a peek behind the scenes before we begin on our offsite journey.
The Final Curtain is a very special show marking a very special moment in our history so don’t miss out on what promises to be a great occasion. Tickets for the show, which cost just £5, are still available and can be booked through The REP’s Box Office on 0121 236 4455 or can be booked online. Every penny raised from the show will go towards our REPAir appeal so by taking part you’ll be playing a starring role in more ways than one!
The Final Curtain will take place in our main auditorium at 11am on Saturday 8 January 2011. Hope to see you there.
