Jamie, X’ntigone, Into The Woods and musicals season at the Grand Opera House
There’s a lot happening in our Belfast theatres, including an amazing Lottery funded 2 for 1 tickets promotion at the Grand Opera House for selected performances of Everybody's Talking About Jamie.
We’ve seen Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in London and watched the movie. It’s a beautiful piece of musical theatre about turning 16 and going on a journey of self discovery to live your true authentic self.
This amazing 2-for-1 offer applies to the following performances:
Tuesday 8 March at 7.30pm
Wednesday 9 March at 7.30pm
Thursday 10 March at 2.30pm and 7.30pm
To take advantage of this fabulous offer, just call the box office team on 02890241919 between 10am and 5pm, Monday-Saturday. Please note, this offer is not available for online bookings.
Currently showing in The Mac is X’ntigone. Our theatre chum Alan in Belfast has reviewed and says, ‘it’s a play for today – laced with phrases and nods to the kind of language and rhetoric we’ve heard over the last two years, it’s a very contemporary piece of theatre’
Catch it at The MAC until 13 February.
Into the Woods by Northern Ireland Opera is currently previewing in the Lyric Theatre with press night on the 9th Feb and the performances continue until 27 Feb.
This new production of Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s Into The Woods, one of the most iconic and popular shows in the musical theatre canon, richly laden with symbolism, magic and metaphor, is directed by NI Opera’s Artistic Director Cameron Menzies.
We spotted this tweet from one of the preview performances.
