Well Swung

You may remember me talking about the auditions for our community musical play, Well Swung, that is being produced by activ8. Well they have been rehearsing like mad over the last week or so and from what I can hear coming from the bar, it is sounding pretty darn good.

The production involves a small team of professional actors and musicians supported by a youth cast and orchestra of 25. It’s the first time activ8 have attempted a show with a large orchestra and the musical arrangements are quite stunning.

The play tells the story of a local swing band struggling to survive and creating a cunning plan to find their audience. Think Brassed off with a bit of a swing and a love story thrown in for good measure!

The performances take place the same weekend as the Bolton Food Festival. There is a preview performance on Friday 29 August (7.30pm) and further performances at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 30 August. Tickets are available from £4.

So why not make an afternoon of it? Join in the Food Festival fun on Friday or Saturday afternoon and then enjoy an evening of Swing music at the Octagon in the evening....
