Curtain's up on Highlights Rural Touring Scheme autumn season
A NEW season of shows in village halls and community venues across County Durham begins later this month.
Some of the country's best performance companies will present 18 shows in 11 villages across the county as part of the Highlights Rural Touring Scheme's autumn programme.
The season kicks off at Whorlton Village Hall, Whorlton, near Barnard Castle, on Sunday, September 22, when the North Yorkshire-based Angus & Ross Theatre Company presents Holmes and Watson – The Farewell Tour.
The autumn programme includes everything from classic stories to new plays and performances from the Edinburgh Fringe.
Music covers a variety of genres, from string and barbershop quartets to jazz and blues.
There is even one show - The Iranian Feast – which is billed as part mystery, part thriller and part cookery lesson.
Younsgters are not forgotten, with a children's show, featuring a stay-and-play session at the end, and the season concludes with A Victorian Christmas, which features a three-man cast of actors and musicians.
In addition to Whorlton, Highlights will be calling at Hamsterley, St John's Chapel, Boldron, Bowes, Barnard Castle, Edmunbyres, Frosterley, Bishop Auckland, Newbiggin-in-Teesdale and Stanhope.
