Two class acts are heading to Newcastle Community Cinema this August, continuing Down Arts Centre’s Season of Summer Nights.
Headlining August’s programme of live music, is Bjorn Identity on Friday 3 August with their stunning exact replica costumes, vocal likeness and ABBA style choreography.
Widely known for their Swedish humour and professionalism and love of audience participation, the Bjorn Identity are committed to recreating the music of their tribute idols. The show is an authentic and live ‘Abba in Concert’ experience unlike any previous comparisons, with all the glitz of the classic 70’s era and featuring all of Abba’s greatest hits and much more.
Lady Windermere’s Fan
On Saturday 4 August, South Bank Playhouse presents Oscar Wilde’s timeless comedy, Lady Windermere’s Fan. Join them as they take you on a journey back to Victorian London and the fashionable residence of the Windermere’s. As the household prepares for a very select party to celebrate Lady Windermere’s 21st Birthday, we discover that this idyllic home may not be as happy as it first appears. Unexpected revelations send young Lady Windermere on a journey of discovery – as her friend Lord Darlington observes, ‘We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.’
Wilde’s classic tale of love, trust, family loyalty, self-sacrifice and scandal is as sharp, witty and relevant today as it was when first produced over 100 years ago. This is a perfect summer’s night out at the theatre.
Both shows start at 8pm with doors open from 7pm. Tickets are available from Down Arts Centre Box Office by phoning 028 4461 0747 or Newcastle Visitor Information Centre by calling 028 4372 2222.
