The Tasty Arts Return
Monday 19th May 2014 7.30pm
Upstairs at The Dog & Parrot £5
Strange things have been happening in one of Newcastle's well loved pubs. Upstairs at The Dog & Parrot is Newcastle upon Tyne’s premier fringe performance space hosting a variety of different events. The space was taken over by the Alphabetti in February 2013 and with the help of the owners we transformed a dark, shabby room above a pub into a cosy, intimate performance space for the emerging artists of the UK to sculpt and hone their skills. The Alphabetti Spaghetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard. It is made up of a group of entertainers, consisting of scriptwriters, actors, comedians, artists and musicians. Their ambition is to create performances that can be enjoyed by all. They strive to make theatre that is accessible and relatable to all; it will amuse and yet still leave the audience thinking at the end. By constantly looking for new ways to challenge themselves, physically, mentally and conceptually they believethey will inevitably challenge the audience. Jowheretogo have had the pleasure of a number of fantastic nights out at this wonderful venue and can confirm that they have succeed in their noble aims.
Onto the regular Alphabetti Soup night, on the penultimate Monday of every month, which mixes a dash of comedy, a sumptuous smattering of original theatre, add some fresh slam poetry and finish of with a garnish of live music. Plus you get a free cup of soup with every ticket. damn tasty.
