Pupils at Nant Celyn Primary School are promoting a production of The Lion Tamer that is taking place in their school on Tuesday 27 March. It’s a show for anyone to come along and enjoy. If you haven’t got a pupil at the school but fancy being entertained by this family-friendly show go and buy a ticket.
The group of pupils are named the ‘young promoters’ and they have been working hard to sell tickets, arrange donations for the raffle and stocking the coffee shop ready for the audience to enjoy.
The Lion Tamer
THE LION TAMER is one of a trilogy of silent movie shows from the award-winning Bash Street Theatre Co. Inspired by the comic genius of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, it has been specially designed to tour village halls and small-scale theatres. It’s a melodrama full of action, pathos and silent comedy, combining circus skills, slapstick humour and live piano music to recreate a black-and-white movie from the golden age of the silver screen.
A ‘two-bit’ circus has arrived in town. It’s run by a crooked showman and his long-suffering assistant, and they are running out of acts. So when a down-at-heel traveller arrives looking for work, he is given an audition. But he takes on more than he bargained for when he is persuaded to become a last-minute replacement for … The Lion Tamer! The Lion Tamer is inspired by the 1928 Charlie Chaplin film ‘The Circus’.
