RAISING THE ROOF

RAISING THE ROOF

A barn dance organised by Corn Exchange volunteers Lynn Burridge and Rose Sutton has raised over 2,500 towards the Wallingford Corn Exchange roof appeal.  So far, 280,000 has been raised towards a target of 500,000. To find out how you can help, visit http://www.cornexchange.org.uk/roof-fund-appeal/

Sinodun Players next production is Bob Carlton's Return to the Forbidden Planet at Wallingford Corn Exchange. Loosely based on Shakespeare's The Tempest and the 1950s movie The Forbidden Planet, this is described as 'a heady mix of sci-fi and Shakespeare glued together with a backbone of rock & roll music.'

Rock classics include Shake, Rattle & Roll, Good Vibrations, Born to be Wild...and many more smash hits from the 1950s and 1960s. Ric Harley directs a cast who will be performing with a live band on stage.

Performances take place 17-20 May at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets 15 (12
for under-18s on Wednesday and Thursday evening and matinee), available from www.cornexchange.org.uk or 01491 825000.

In 1975, 64 volunteers worked for nearly three years to transform the derelict Corn Exchange into a 175 seat theatre. It was opened in December 1978 by Sir Peter Hall, and the cinema was added in 1980. It is still run by unpaid volunteers, selling over 25,000 tickets a year. The Roof Appeal group hope the same community spirit will help keep this community facility vibrant (and dry!)
