ON-LINE BOOKING FOR PLAYERS' TICKETS

NANTWICH Players' theatre patrons can book tickets on-line through Nantwich Town Council's website, http://www.nantwichtowncouncil.gov.uk/. (See listings on this page for the date and time of productions.)

   To book on line, visit the Council's website and click on Book Tickets on the index page. There is a 1 administration fee per ticket bought on-line which goes directly to the Town Council and not the organisation staging the event. The facility applies to other events in town and at the Civic Hall. 

   However, if all the Players' Theatre tickets go before you can buy yours, it is always worthwhile going along to the theatre on a convenient night (after 7pm)because some patrons cannot go as they had planned and return their ticket(s) through a fellow patron. You might be in time to buy one or more of these.

   For information on the on-line booking scheme go to What's On - Civic Hall on this website.

 

  Colder than Here by Laura Wade. February 9 to 17 (except Sunday 11). Given nine months to live after being diagnosed with cancer, Myra tackles her remaining time with great gusto - surveying natural burial sites, producing a PowerPoint presentation about her funeral and buying a flat pack coffin. The play is "frequently poignant but anything but gloomy". Tickets on sale from January 23.

  Youth Theatre production - to be confirmed. From March 21 to 25: Tickets on sale on February 27.

  The Thrill of Love by Amanda Whittington, May 11 to 29 (except Sunday 13). The play tells the story of  Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Great Britain. There are appeals for clemency but the Home Secretary doesn't issue a last-minute stay of execution. Tickets on sale from April 24.

   Ladies Day by Amanda Whittington, July 6 to 14 (except Sunday 8). A modern, summer comedy about a hard-working fish-filleting foursome. But fortunes change when one of them finds tickets for Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot. If their luck holds, they could hit the jackpot - and more. Tickets on sale from June 19.
