Centre Stage event: The Origin of Species

Musical Comedy at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre on Friday 5th February 2016.

BUSCA is relieved to be able to share the good news that Charnwood communities can still enjoy Centre Stage professional shows ….just. It was touch and go after Leicestershire County Council pulled out of the scheme but Charnwood Borough decided that it was too valuable a scheme to drop.

So make sure that you come along on Friday February 5th to enjoy The Origin of Species, a musical comedy by the Tangram Theatre Company hot from the Edinburgh Fringe. It has had rave reviews wherever it appears: “witty, clever, absurd, the jokes spring out at you when you least expect….grownups will love it. Kids will adore it. A gem”.

It tells the incredible story of how Charles Darwin came to discover the secrets of evolution and why it took him over twenty years before he plucked up the courage to publish his remarkable ideas. It’s a show packed with big theories, terrible puns, brilliant physical comedy and six cracking original songs about everything from blasted boring barnacles to the perils of marrying your cousin; “science can rarely have been such fun”.

The Origin of Species is on Friday February 5th starting at 7.30pm in Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, Barrow. Tickets cost £9, concessions £8, children £5 and family £24. If you buy in advance, discounts bring this to £8, £7, £4 and £22. They can be obtained from The Paper Shop, by contacting the Box Office on 07718 153117 or or by PayPal on the BUSCA website.

Do bring the family along and enjoy it for yourselves. This is touring professional theatre at its best.
