Re:Bourne presents Lord of the Flies at the Alhambra Next Year

LORD OF THE FLIES will tour in to the Alhambra Theatre Bradford for exclusive Yorkshire dates from Wednesday 3 to Saturday 6 December 2014.

The action is transferred from deserted island to deserted theatre. A group of schoolboys find themselves abandoned. With no adults around they start to make their own rules and create their own civilisation, before order breaks down and the story builds to an electrifying climax.

With a cast of New Adventures dancers and remarkable young talent, chosen from the Yorkshire region, Golding’s legendary characters Ralph, Piggy, Jack and the boys will be brought to life with raw energy and emotional intensity.

Devised and directed by Olivier and Tony award-winner Matthew Bourne, choreographed by Olivier nominated Scott Ambler and featuring set and costume design by Olivier Award-winner Lez Brotherston , music by Terry Davies, lighting design by Chris Davey and sound design by  Paul Groothuis.

This production is supported by Arts Council England, the Arts Council of Wales in addition to other major trusts and donors. Originally commissioned by Glasgow Theatres, part of Ambassador Theatre Group.

Lord of the Flies continues Bradford Theatres’ commitment to staging the very best regional, national and international dance productions, including a long history of staging Matthew Bourne’s hugely popular productions. This Autumn has seen Moscow Ballet La Classique present The Nutcracker at St George’s Hall, Dance Consortium present New York’s Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet at the Alhambra, and Leeds’ based Northern Ballet bring A Christmas Carol to Bradford next month.

Lord of the Flies is at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford from Wednesday 3 to Saturday 6 December 2014.  Evening performances are at 7.30pm and matinées are Thursday 2pm and Saturday 2.30pm. Tickets are priced from £15 to £28 . Booking fees apply:  £1 per ticket on the phones / counter, £2.50 per ticket online.
