Live Lincs; Burst of colourful events planned

During these dark, cold months everyone needs to plan ahead to brighter times. Which is why we have some high- energy performances lined up for Live Lincs this Spring. 

Our fun-packed menu is more diverse than ever, with music, cabaret, comedy and special performances planned.

First up, is a stand alone performance at Barton on Humber where bgroup and China Plate will be performing Point of Echoes - a specially commissioned Rural Touring Dance Initiative. This production will be utterly breathtaking – so tell all your friends and family and bring them along.

Here’s the  blurb….The year is 1978, isolated from the mainland, Eric Valentine and Bernard Humphries have been stationed at Echo Point lighthouse, somewhere off the coast of England. The unlikely strangers have just begun to lay down foundations for this odd working relationship when the uncanny occurs. Point of Echoes is a haunting tale of love, death and monsters, blending the tones of a Wes Anderson movie with the eerie dread of The Twilight Zone. ..

Sounds amazing. It will be shown at Barton-on -Humber Assembly Rooms, Queen Street, Barton, on Sunday, March, 11 at 7.30pm. Tickets tele 01652 637568 or email info@champltd.org

Next on the bill is Theatre Company  Gonzo Mooze – The Thing That Came From Over There – a ’rip-roaring’ comedy adventure. Inspired by the Horror movies of the 1950’s, The Thing That Came From Over There is a fast-paced performance, mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome deaths.  It’s 1912, and a meteor has crashed in Antarctica. The whole of planet earth is endangered. What ancient evil lurks inside the crater? What is the dark secret of the slimy fungus? And what is the horrifying fate of those who encounter the parasitic space worms?

Join us and find out. The show is full of shocks, spine tingling silliness, and blood curdling terror. It will appear at three venues, Worlaby Village Hall, Thurs, March 1, Tickets – 01652 618832 , Wroot Village Hall, Fri, March 2, Tickets 01302, 771 802/ 07912 490323  and Brigg and District Servicemen’s Club, thanks to Brigg Live Arts, on Sun, March 4, Tickets 07716 126982. Each showing will take place at 7.30pm.

Funnyman Jango Starr will delight and amaze audiences with his One Man Shoe act.  When the headline act fails to show up, Jango, a bumbling theatre caretaker, is suddenly thrust into the limelight and embarks on a hilarious journey of highly crafted and heart-felt silent comedy, as he magically finds his way to realise his dream of transforming into a star! Jango will appear at four Live Lincs venues; All Saints Church, Winterton, March 15, at 6pm Tickets 01724 734285, Appleby Village Hall, March 16, 7.30pm 01724 647665, Wroot Village Hall, March 17, 7.30pm 01302 771802, Goxhill Memorial Hall, March 18, 7pm, 01469 530363.

ShooShoo Baby will have you bent double with The Great Cabaret Safari act. Not only is this show hilariously funny, it’s also full of great musicianship, with much-loved songs from composers as diverse as Verdi, The Proclaimers, Cole Porter and Queen. The group has impressed audiences all over the world with the quality of their singing and have performed on ice, jumped out of cakes and even entertained on stilts before royalty, oligarchs and pop stars .

They will appear Kirton-in-Lindsey Town Hall on April 19, 7.30pm tele 01652 648435, and Goxhill Memorial Hall, on April 22, 7.30pm tel 01469 530363.

Those looking for a night out with the entire family, should snap up tickets for The Bone Ensemble’s Where’s My Igloo Gone?  This fun and magical show reveals how, when people work together, anything can happen! With enchanting live music, we join Oolik on her journey to save her igloo home…

The Bone Ensemble creates high-quality theatre, forging meaningful encounters with our audiences. They have worked at the National Theatre, the RSC, and in car parks, caravans and Danish piazzas. They will appear at Crosby One Centre, Scunthorpe on April 19 at 6pm, Tickets 01724 277757. They will also be performing at Goxhill Primary School on Friday, April 20, 6.30pm, tickets 01469 530743.

Tayo Aluko & Friends will be at Barton on Humber Assembly Rooms on Sunday, April 29th, 7.30pm with  Call Mr Robeson – a Life with Songs. Paul Robeson is a world-famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When he gets too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he is branded a traitor to his country, is harassed, and denied opportunities to perform or travel. This roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable life highlights how his political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement. It features some famous songs (including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River), speeches, and a spectacularly defiant testimony to the Senate House Un-American Activities Committee.

Telephone 01652 637568 for tickets. 

And finally, Birkett and Fisk will delight audiences at St Andrew’s Church in Burton-on-Stather on Thursday, June 7, 7.30pm and Epworth Thurlow Pavilion on Friday, June 8, 8pm. If you enjoy live music, this is the show for you. Bringing together their shared knowledge and love of early jazz styles, Emma Fisk and James Birkett present an entertaining mix of jazz violin and guitar. A typical performance includes  compositions by Venuti/Lang such as Cheese & Crackers, Sunshine and Black and Blue Bottom; jazz standards of the 20s and 30s; and specially composed originals that explore the duo’s soundworld.

Tickets from Burton at 01724 721274 and from Epworth at 01427 872491.

Children’s entertainer Dommy B will also be making special appearances with his show Spark, the Goblin Wizard, in partnership with North Lincolnshire Libraries at venues throughout the area. 

Spark’s magic can turn anything into anything. He’ll turn the bogeys up his nose into some pink ribbons and bows. He’ll make a gorgeous high-heeled shoe out of

a pile of donkey poo… However, something strange and terrible begins to happen in Spark’s forest. With lyrics, laughs and lots of joining in, poet Dommy B needs your help to save the

day!
