Cast opening weekend
Doncaster’s new performing arts venue opens tomorrow with a spectacular outdoor event in Sir Nigel Gresley Square off Water dale at 6pm.
Musicians, singers, dancers and spoken word artists will tell stories of Doncaster, of myths and legends, and there are lots of surprises promised.
The celebration is free and open to all.
The first performance in the main space is Glee Club, which starts tomorrow and continues to Saturday September 21.
The town’s leading playwright Richard Cameron wrote this song-filled comedy charting the lives and heartaches of a group of miners from Edlington.
In the past the show, which was first performed in 2002, has played in the West End and across the UK.
The production features some of the language of the pit, plus some male nudity.
Then there are more free performances taking place all day at Cast to celebrate the venue’s opening weekend.
They include film, spoken word, an arts market where people can swap their work, breakdance, a puppet show, jazz and classical music and even a knitting session.
