Community Theatre at Lichfield Cathedral – tickets go live

 

On 11-12 May Lichfield Cathedral will host ‘Echoes’ a community theatre performance that will see the audience taken on a journey through the ages with theatre, dance and music.

The project, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Westhill Endowment, has brought together individuals and arts groups from across the local area. A core cast from the local community between the ages of 13 and 70+, have been devising a script and rehearsing since January 2024. On a weekly basis the project has been supported by a small team of committed creatives: Young Producer Emily Lowe, BOA Student Millie-May Terrington and Director Emily Summers of Bostin’ Creative.

Emily Summers says: “Our talented cast applied to take part last year and since January have spent weeks researching and exploring the history of Lichfield Cathedral. Developing scenes, concepts, and characters in rehearsals at the Old Stables – close enough to hear the bells ring!”

Using the magnificent Lichfield Cathedral as its backdrop ‘Echoes’ is a time machine performance lasting roughly 60 minutes, that will see the audience walk through different spaces in the Cathedral and encounter tales from the past.

Emily continues: “The audience will be taken on an intimate journey through time, and around the Cathedral. Coming face to face with Saints, Stonemasons, Victorians, Roundheads, Royalists, and more, with pop up performances from a number of community groups, (we don’t want to give too much away).

ECHOES promises to be an immersive experience full of secrets, history, heart, and hope. We’re very proud of it. Don’t miss out!”

Tickets are free with a ‘pay what you can’ message, but they are limited to 70 per performance, so grab your tickets while you can! Performances will be Saturday 11 May at 19:30, Sunday 12 May at 17:00 and 19:30. All performances will be BSL interpreted.

Access note: This performance is approximately 60 minutes in length. 40 minutes takes place on the move. All performance areas are wheelchair accessible and there will be clusters of accessible seating available in each performance area.
