Finally! After weeks of lobbying the government in unity with other open-air theatres and members of the performing arts industries, BOAT is finally able to re-open their gates for live performances!
Keen to thank everyone who has supported them during the last few months of closure – they’re opening up with a condensed programme for the remainder of the summer!
We’re all desperate for safe ways to have fun at the moment, so get involved and support them, and have a brilliant time to boot! Pack a picnic and get the kids in the car, and get over to enjoy a fabulous show as the sun sets over Dyke Park.
The first show: BOAT Unlocked!
The first production of the season takes place on Saturday 25th July: BOAT Unlocked – a celebration of local artists and companies in a relaxed, cabaret-style variety show. There will be two line-ups, one at 2pm and the other at 6pm.
Tickets are £5, £10 and £20 – and all admit 1 person, with seating unreserved. The different prices are offered depending on what you are able to contribute – all proceeds from BOAT Unlocked will be split between BOAT and the artists. They will also be collecting donations on the day.
The line ups are as follows:
2pm – Compered by Boogaloo Stu, featuring:
- McGoozer acoustic music
- This Is My Theatre scenes from plays interspersed with songs
- Project Female all-female dance troupe
- Charlotte Glasson Band jazz and latin music
6pm – Compered by Flick Ferdinando, featuring:
- Bad Mutha Covers groovy cover songs
- Voodoo Vaudeville aerial circus
- Gin Palace Productions scenes and songs from the 50s
- Rhianna McGreevey acoustic music
- Suspiciously Elvis crowd-pleasing Elvis hits
Further acts may be announced over the next few days, it’s expected that tickets will sell out fast so book early to avoid disappointment!
