Exciting pre-Edinburgh fringe event at The Lantern Theatre, 27 July – 2 August

Shiny New 15 Line Up

Shiny New Festival returns to Lantern Theatre Liverpool for its fourth year!

Lantern Theatre Liverpool is playing host to its annual pre-Edinburgh theatre event Shiny New Festival for the fourth year this July.  From 27 July – 2 August audiences will be treated to 3 shows a night from the North West’s top fringe talents. The festival, founded in 2012 by Shiny New Director Pete Mitchelson in association with the Lantern has gone from strength to strength in the past four years and this years line up is not to be missed. With an eclectic mix of performances from new writing to bouffon clowning there is something for everyone at Shiny New Festival.

This years line up includes an exciting new collaboration with Manchester’s 24:7 Theatre Festival.  Four plays from the Manchester festival will be transferring to the Lantern in the first collaboration of its kind in the North West.  Annika Edge of 24:7 Theatre Festival says, “This exciting collaboration connects two unique festivals and demonstrates there are further opportunities for new plays in the North West.”

Acts that audiences can expect to see throughout the festival include Teatro Pomodoro, Man with a Porpoise and Farucchio Peru is Extraordinaire who recently enjoyed success in Liverpool’s Physical Fest.  There will also be a whole host of new writing for audiences with plays focusing on the marriage of Frank Sinatra and Ava Garner (One For My Baby) society’s increasing use of social media (Follow/Unfollow) or a comic play based on what is seen by cleaners in an office (Cleaners).

Full line up and ticket details can be found on Lantern Theatre Liverpool’s website at www.lanterntheatreliverpool.co.uk. Tickets range from £6-10 with savings for anyone who would like to see all three shows in one day. Get your tickets fast for what is certain to be an exciting week.
