University of Bolton professor to direct miller play at "New" town centre theatre

Category


The University of Bolton’s head of the BA (Hons) Theatre and Performance degree, Professor David Thacker is set to stage the northern premiere of Arthur Miller’s: The Last Yankee in the newly-created venue: The Library Theatre from 28 February until 16 March. Prof Thacker, former artistic director of Bolton’s Octagon Theatre, said he was “tremendously excited” to be presenting a play in a “new, intimate and beautiful space” that will see The Lecture Theatre undergo temporary modifications, including a rename to ‘The Library Theatre’, making it suitable for a high-quality theatre production. This bold move by the university will give students the chance to shadow a professional theatre company. “The experience the students will gain from this is invaluable. It will enable them to get a great understanding of what putting together a professional production and theatre company entails.” explained Prof Thacker. Tickets are available from the Bolton Octagon box office: Telephone 01204 520 661, at www.octagonbolton.co.uk, or in person at the Market Place Shopping Centre.
