Hello everyone,

It’s been a few months since the last marketing blog so there’s loads of news to catch up with.

We’re currently deep into our Christmas programme with The Voyages Of Sinbad The Sailor in Unity 1 and Terry Titter’s Cosy Chrimbo! in Unity 2. Sinbad has been a new and exciting evolution of of Christmas show. Unlike 2010/11’s show Sinbad has been scripted (usually the show is devised) by Jeff Young and directed by unity’s Artistic Director Graeme Phillips. The show they have created is probably the best I’ve seen at Unity, it’s clever, funny, perfect for kids but with enough for adults to enjoy as well. During the first night (when traditionally everyone who’s worked on the show goes along with family and friends) I was thrilled to hear kids laughing, pointing and smiling, but also adults genuinely appreciating the wit of the play. It embodies everything the Unity stands for, it’s original, clever, witty, uses a range of theatrical techniques, shadow puppetry, puppets, song, dance, sword fights, but it has a message, it has direction, focus and a soul. Check out the brilliant video to see more!

We’ve had a great Autumn season at Unity with more sell-out shows than ever before, but we never focus on the past and are looking to the Spring Season to make sure it’s a sterling success. There are loads of great shows in the season but there are two stand out events for me, the return of Gold Mountain and our exciting  fuelfest. Gold Mountain, returning after a successful run in 2010, is a co-production with Canadian company Les Deux Mondes and features Liverpool’s own David Yip. The show is with us for a week before embarking on tour to London, Sweden and then Canada! Fuelfest sees innovative producers Fuel curate part of the season with four exciting shows: they’ll be exciting, quirky and something completely different to our usual programme. Expect shows in the dark, participative interaction and moving storytelling!

Hope to see you there!
