If you haven’t heard of 4th Avenue, where have you been?
These 4 amazing Hinckley-based singers met up a year ago to form what has gone on to be the most successful group the local area has recently seen. Compared by many to The Overtones due to their vocal range and versions of classic songs with breath-taking harmonies, 4th Avenue’s crowd interaction and slick routines, have propelled them to the very front of the music scene both locally and around the UK in a short period of time. The group will be performing a fund raising evening for the Concordia – their local theatre – to celebrate their first anniversary and film their first DVD. They will be joined by a live band and backing dancers.
February 2019 will be the third visit to Concordia by The Backbeat Beatles. For February they will be performing a new show to represent The Fab Four’s appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show and the 50th anniversary of what was to be the final public performance on the 30th January 1969 of The Beatles, when the band, with keyboardist Billy Preston, surprised a central London office and fashion district with an impromptu concert from the roof of the headquarters of the band’s multimedia corporation Apple Corps at 3 Savile Row.
THE RADIO BROADCAST THAT TERRIFIED AMERICA
Join us in The Studio Theatre as we recreate an infamous moment in radio history: The live US radio broadcast by the Orson Welles Company of H.G. Wells’s sci-fi classic THE WAR OF THE WORLDS on Halloween Night, 30th October 1938.
It was reported at the time that the broadcast caused chaos as listeners across America believed that the radio dramatisation was in fact “live news” and that the reports of aliens attacking US cities were real.
For NTP’s recreation of this extraordinary live event, we will be assembling a cast to play Orson Welles’s actors reading Howard E. Koch’s original radio script. Our sound engineer will play in live sound effects and we invite you to join the studio audience as we bring you as close as possible to the reality of a live recording session, as alien machines threaten to take over the world.
She’s performed at the infamous Ziegfeld Follies but Fanny Brice will take to the stage at the Concordia for one week only in February 2019!
FUNNY GIRL is a musical theatre classic. Featuring some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including People, Don’t Rain On My Parade and Sadie, Sadie – this is the fascinating and bitter-sweet story of Fanny Brice, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star, and her tempestuous relationship with gambler Nicky Arnstein.
