The Blackmore Theatre
The Exmouth Players and Blackmore Youth Theatre presents Musicals and Music Halls at The Blackmore Theatre, Exmouth, on 14th and 15th July 2018 – both performances commence at 3pm.
Music hall is a typically British theatrical entertainment that was popular from the early Victorian era until the 1960s and involved a mixture of popular songs, comedy, specialty acts, and variety entertainment, which included male and female impersonators, mime artists and impressionists, trampoline acts, and comic pianists. The music hall gave rise to major stars such as Marie Lloyd, George Formby, Gracie Fields, Max Miller and Flanagan and Allen.
The music hall’s greatest legacy is the art form that it inspired – the musical. On stage and screen, classical and modern musicals have hit new heights of popularity and today are a larger part of mainstream entertainment than ever before.
So it seems most fitting that the Blackmore is offering this production combining the joys of Musicals and Music Halls. This will include a mixture of a medley of the best of current musicals with an exuberant cast from our Blackmore Youth Theatre, the stars of tomorrow, and the many talents of our adult theatre troupe in a traditional program of music hall song, dance and variety acts.
Add the chance to dress up if desired.
Money raised from both these performances will go towards much needed restoration and improvements for our Blackmore Theatre.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible and look forward to some good old audience participation!
£5 for Under 16s
