A promenade theatre event devised by Wimborne Community Theatre taking place in the empty museum, to commemorate the temporary clossure of the building prior to commencement of building developments and refurbishment.
Members of Wimborne Community Theatre have researched the history of the building in its various previous incarnations, as home and shop, and will convey aspects of the building's past and its place in the history of the town as an educational resource and cultural centre.
Wimborne Community Theatre, with Millstream Theatre, the museum's theatre group for learning-disabled actors, is working in partnership with professional artists to develop the production - sound artist, Adrian Newton, to develop soundscapes capturing the atmosphere of the building, and artists, Alastair Nisbet and Nic Rawling from ScreenPLAY, who will work with students from St Michael's Middle School to create drawings and animations which will be presented as video installations during the performances and feature in four large zoetropes, presenting modern animation in a contemporary but essentially Victorian style.
Tickets £7 (concessions £6) available from Wimborne Tourist Information Centre or on 01202 886116 (booking essential)
