The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 1 September 2011

Martin Pritchard and Jonathan Higgs from Stockport Garrick talk to us about the amateur group's upcoming production of Gaslight by Patrick Hamilton, and also discuss the society's upcoming season and thriving youth group.

John Goodfellow, press officer with Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre, tells us about how to become an official 'Twitic' or Twitter critic for the theatre's next production. Fifty people will be picked to get free tickets for Marlowe's Edward II and will then report their views on the popular social networking site.

There are some more opportunities for young actors in professional shows, and a tribute to the playwright NF Simpson.
