Curtain to rise again with musical concert celebration
Out of the Darkness, Into the Spotlight
Seaton Delaval Arts Centre
Sunday 8th August 2021
After an incredibly challenging year for the entire theatre industry, south east Northumberland venue Seaton Delaval Arts Centre are delighted to announce a re-opening concert to mark the return of live entertainment. With the community venues doors firmly shut for the last 16 months, performers will be taking to the stage with a spectacular concert celebrating the wonderful world of musical theatre.
Named from the final song in the hit musical Everybody’s talking about Jamie, ‘Out of the Darkness, Into the Spotlight’ will bring an audience back into the venue for a night of live performance. The show is packed with a mix of old and new songs from the shows including Matilda, Les Mis, Hamilton, Chicago, Grease, Mamma Mia and many many more. They’ll be sung by talented local performers and members of their youth theatre group who can’t wait to get back to rehearsing and performing. Plus they’ll be joined on stage by live musicians playing every note.
Stu Bennett, Theatre Director said “Like all performance venues, it’s been a really tough year for us. After our venue sitting empty for such a long time, we feel it’s only right to mark our re-opening and celebrate a new chapter properly with a concert performed by our members for the community to enjoy. We can’t wait to welcome patrons back into our auditorium for a night of live performance with all the musical songs they know and love, to sit back, relax and enjoy themselves. When the lights go down and the band strikes up, that feeling is going to be so magical.”
The show takes place on Sunday 8th August 2021 at 7.00pm with tickets at £10.00 per person. The venue is operating a bring your own bottle scheme for the performance. Tickets are available online at www.seatondelavalartscentre.com or from the Box Office on 0191 237 5460.
