Opening Friday 8th December.   Hurry – tickets already selling fast!
1558 (or two minutes to four in the afternoon, if you prefer) and Elizabeth I has ascended to the throne just in time for tea.  Lord Edmund Blackadder (the bastard great-great-grandson of the original) attempts to win her favour despite the efforts of his ineffectual acquaintances, notably the idiot Percy, and his mediocre mess of a manservant, Baldrick.   First chronicled on our television screens back in 1983, ‘Blackadder’ ran for over six years and remains one of the BBC’s best-loved comedies. Our cunning plan to delight audiences is to recreate 3 favourite episodes from Series 2:  

BELLS


Served by a dungball in a dress and accompanied by a bird-brained dimwit he can’t shake off, Edmund, the bastard great-great-grandson of the repulsive original, is reasonably normal – until he meets Bob . . .


HEAD
Edmund, newly appointed minister in charge of religious genocide and Lord High Executioner, finds himself in a spot of bother when he completely ruins Lord Farrow’s weekend by cutting off his head.

CHAINS
Edmund is slightly inconvenienced when a fat-headed German chamber-pot boxes him up in a chest full of iron spikes and leaves him to play charades with a crazed Spanish interrogator. DON’T BE A BALDRICK, BOOK NOW

Remembering Tony Kempton



Sadly our member Tony Kempton passed away recently.   Tony personified all that it is to volunteer at BLT. He worked on the bar regularly and was invaluable on the technical side. As well as operating sound and lighting, he helped last summer on a PAT testing project. He was always around to fix something electronic and was keen to learn new skills which he approached with great enthusiasm.   He was great company too – full of stories and engaging with the younger people at the theatre. As one of our team said “A thoroughly likeable guy who will be missed by all who knew him.”  

Tony’s wife Christine has told us that his Pure Cremation will take place on 21st December at 9 am. She asks for people to remember him at that time. Early next year there will be a celebration of Tony’s life.   Our sincere condolences to all his family.


The future of our theatre. You could play a crucial role in it  


BLT recently announced a major funding project to raise £85,000 from our members and supporters. We also need to raise a further £400,000 from Trusts, Foundations and the National Lottery.  Unfortunately, the fund-raising team focused on this has unexpectedly lost two of its key members and we urgently need to find people to take their places.   Could you be one of them?   The work should only involve a few hours a week and could be done remotely to suit your schedule.   There are two main aspects of these roles:   1) Research grant funding organisations to establish whether the theatre meets eligibility requirements   2) Where there is a potential match, obtain, complete, submit and monitor the application process through to a decision being made.   We’re looking for good organisers with Excellent written and oral communication skills The ability to quickly establish and manage relationships with the FR team, theatre board and prospective grant funding organisations   The ability to enjoy (and contribute to) being part of a team   If you think you could help, please contact our Chair Bruce Wallace at brucewallace@clive
