The new season of Live and Local shows are already underway and coming to a village hall near you.
The aim of the organisation is to bring high-quality, entertaining and affordable live theatre, dance and music to a wide range of venues across the county. It is all made possible by a band of local promoters who organise the events and sell tickets.
Across the county from Chinley to Dalbury Lees and Alstonefield to Heanor you will be able to experience some fantastic entertainment.
Drama this month includes New Perspectives Theatre’s Harvest – a colourful comedy telling the story of a farming family’s fight for survival in a changing landscape – at Holloway.
Badapple Theatre will be at Heanor with Salsa Verde, a smart-stepping new comedy with sublime music and sultry dancing, while at Kirk Langley you will be able to see a comic ode to death and friendship in Team Viking performed by Tangram Theatre.
In Tutbury, Owdyado Theatre will be staging A View From the Edge, a deftly woven narrative of stories within stories.
If you enjoy dance then get along to Dronfield Hall Barn where the acclaimed Spanish flamenco ensemble Alma Gitana will be displaying some thrilling footwork, extraordinary singing and outstanding guitar work.
For lovers of folk music and jazz there is a chance to see Sarah McQuaid at Pleasley and Yoxhall; the Peacock Angell Trio at Brailsford; Sarah Moule with the Ella Fitzgerald Songbook at Bramshall and Harp & A Monkey at Chinley.
New Mills and Breadsall will be hosting café music from Oh La La! – a charming and sophisticated acoustic quartet headed up by Parisian Fifi la Mer.
There are lots more shows available so for full details of dates, times and where to get tickets go to http://www.liveandlocal.org.uk or look out for leaflets and posters in your local venue.
