I’m sorry, I just don’t have the January blues…

Hey folks, how are you Tall?

Counting down the days until the Christmas break again or your summer holiday? Well prepare to hate me, but I am genuinely loving being back at work! Mainly because I am so excited about the shows and groups we are working with this season.

10933961_645737298871646_8121386310264328993_nWe kick off Spring 2015 with the amazing Theatre AdInfinitum and their new show LIGHT. I’ve been a massive fan of this company for a couple of years now (don’t pretend you didn’t know I was a theatre geek) and I saw this show up in Edinburgh last summer. It completely blew me away, and I was really excited about the idea of adding it to the Plugged In menu.  Not just because I am a fan of the company but because I really think this show will appeal to audiences way out of the usual theatre goers!

Luckily for me, SLYNCS thought so to! If you haven’t already heard of SLYNCS, they are a Blackburn based youth organisation that work on interfaith relationships, and generally improving their local community in any way that they can! You might remember we worked with them for a piece on the main stage at Blackburn Festival last September?

And they have some really exciting ideas for spreading the word about the show! This Saturday, January 24th, we are taking over one of the Blackburn is Open shops, and running a pop up box office, with a difference.  Why not come down, watch the trailer, find out why the group felt it was so important that this show came to Blackburn and buy your ticket there and then?

A few other things we are currently working on include, gingerbread decorating for Hansel and Gretel, meeting all of the Children’s University Year 5′s, organising some free runners and jugglers, and I will be busy putting together my steam-punk-magician fancy dress costume, for Parlour Ticks!

I know, not only did I brag about not having the January blues, but also about just how good my job is. If it is any consolation, Stephie has already found several ‘witty’ things to say about this blog, and me in general.

I don’t know, what do I have to put up with, all for the name of art?!?

Of course if you are feeling a bit stuck in a rut, you could always buy a ticket to cheer you up, or look at getting involved with the work we do yourself? Until next time, Stephie x
