Andover comes alive at The Lights

Come along to The Lights 10 February 2016 to see five professional actors bring alive Andover in the

1960’s, a decade that changed the town for ever.

Based on the memories of local people, And Now We Tell Our Tale was originally written by Roy

Chatfield as a youth theatre piece for fifty-four children and young adults successfully staged last

February. Roy has now rewritten it for five professional actors, and includes additional stories from

the interviews.

The five actors selected are

Nick Bull

Charlotte Ellis

Verity Hewlett

Sharon O’Leary

Fraser Wilson

Director John Baxter is looking forward to working with this enthusiastic and experienced team of

actors. ‘It is an event in itself that we’re bringing professional actors into local schools. That it’s a piece

of theatre about Andover and created wholly in Andover makes it unique.’

In addition to the public performance, the cast will be giving performances and workshops in local

schools.

The Performance begins at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5 (concessions £3), obtainable from The Lights.

There will also be a Q & A session with the cast and team after the performance.

The project is supported by HCC, TVBC, Test Valley Arts Foundation and The Lights.
