Come Join Us!
From 10.00am until 2.00pm
At The Elgiva Theatre
St Mary’s Way, Chesham, Bucks, HP5 1HR
Did you know that it’s The Elgiva’s 20th birthday this year? What better way to celebrate two decades of entertaining the community, than for them to throw open their doors and offer families from Chesham and beyond the chance to explore their local theatre and cinema?
Come and join The Elgiva on Saturday 3rd November for a backstage pass to the entertainment world. We are offering onstage demonstrations, tours backstage, face-painting, story-telling, costume design, artwork and a whole host of activities all over the building.
Visitors will be able to listen to the mesmerising sound of Hartbeats African Drummers and then create their own rhythms with a Royal Ballet Flamenco tutor Lucia Caruso.
The theatre will be packed with workshops and displays, things to see, to learn, to do, to make. From auditions masterclasses to panto dress-up and street-dance taster sessions and from “Secrets Behind The Scenes” tours to hands-on technical demos it’s all completely free!
We will be showcasing all sorts of local talent including dance schools, singers, creative writers, quilters and musicians. Local historian Peter Hawkes will be creating an incredible timeline display of names from the past, previous events and the history of the theatre.
No need to book and more info coming soon!
