Rhythm of The Dance and The Gruffalo's Child

4/7/18 About 1 minute
Two productions that hit Chelmsford's Civic Theatre's stage this July will celebrate Irish culture and bring a classic children's book to life….

If you love Irish music and dance, the spectacular 'Rhythm of The Dance', which features a gifted cast of world champion dancers, a traditional Irish band and singers, will be the show for you. The epic show follows the journey of the Irish Celts throughout history, in a celebration of Irish culture, using both traditional dance and modern stage technology, to preserve Irish step dancing whilst presenting it in a contemporary setting. The show features a live band, three tenors and 22 dancers, and has played to over seven million fans across the world since its first performance in 1999. The show has recently been updated and the show has a renewed vigor to keep it at the top of its game. Rhythm of The Dance comes to the Civic Theatre on Friday 27 July at 7.45pm.

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's classic children's book 'The Gruffalo's Child' is brought to life on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July. The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood…..What will happen when the Gruffalo's Child ignores her father's warning and tiptoes out into the snow? Does the Big Bad Mouse really exist? Find out when this award-winning, magical, musical adaptation hits the stage. Performance times are 1.30pm and 4.30pm on Saturday 28 July and 10.30am and 1.30pm on Sunday 29 July.

The Wednesday Lunchtime Concerts continue in the Cramphorn Studio at 1pm, throughout July. On Wednesday 4 July, Ian Whiteside, Kevin Simpson, Penny Rich and Jeffrey Wilson, will be performing variations on an American theme for Independence Day. The Beech Duo, guitarist Nigel Tuffs and violinist Jan Welsh, will perform classical works for violin and guitar on Wednesday 11 July. On Wednesday 18 July, Annie Forrester Muir and Pam Camponelli will be joined by Jeffrey Wilson on piano, for a single reed extravaganza. The lunchtime concert moves to a Thursday on 26 July when Simone Perks and Paul Marden will perform a varied, popular programme, followed by a relaxed concert at 2.15pm.
