Meet the cast of Three Minute Heroes
Sat 4 - Sat 25 October 2014
The Belgrade’s hit 2 Tone musical is back!
Inspired by the music of The Selecter, The Specials and the 2 Tone scene, Three Minute Heroes is an affectionate tribute that was enormously successful when first produced by the Belgrade back in 2000. It now returns to the theatre, this time on the B2 stage, in a brand new production.
Welcome to Coventry – centre of the musical universe – at a time when the city’s bands ruled the airwaves. The music had to be ska and the legendary 2 Tone label was the hub of it all.
Join five local heroes as they bond, fight, love and play their way through the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. Relive those heady days if you were there the first time around and, if you weren’t, experience for yourselves why 2 Tone really put Coventry on the map.
Three Minute Heroes features a live band playing foot-stomping favourites by The Selecter and The Specials, including Gangsters, Do Nothing, On My Radio, Missing Words, A Message to You, Rudy, Ghost Town, Free Nelson Mandela and Three Minute Hero.
Age recommendation: 12+
Three Men In A Boat Trailer
Thurs 14 - Sat 18 October 2014
Following a hit, sell-out tour in 2012, Craig Gilbert’s ingenious and acclaimed adaptation of Jerome K Jerome’s classic tale of boating misadventure returns to the UK stage this autumn armed with more singing, wilder adventures and sporting even brighter blazers.
Originally intended as a guide to boating on the Thames, Jerome’s ripping yarn of youthful friendship, mischief and folly celebrates the very essence of ‘Britishness’, inspiring many of our comic legends from Morecambe and Wise to Monty Python.
Original Theatre Company take this classic tale of misadventure and folly by the scruff of the neck. Equipped with a working pub, live piano accompaniment, some ale, music hall singing, a dog and a feast of physical comedy, settle yourself in for a night out to remember.
