Centre Stage in Spring! “The Beautiful Game”

Football. Some love it, others loathe it, but we can’t deny that it is somehow present in all of our lives. A family show, this is one for all to enjoy. The important thing is, you don’t need to be a football fan to appreciate it.

The Beautiful Game is a laugh-out-loud look at Britain’s undying obsession with football, celebrating everything from weird match day rituals to ridiculous arm chair opinionating. It may even attempt to explain the offside rule. Packed with unforgettable goals, chant-along hits and full to the brim with nostalgia, this show will have you casting your mind back to fixtures gone by.

Stories are expressed through the medium of physical theatre and are often accompanied by catchy tunes or pre-recorded anecdotes from die-hard fans. It is a show for the whole family; the fanatic, the impartial spectator and the football widow. Even if you don’t like football, The Beautiful Game will persuade you of its charms. It is performed by Next Door Dance, an all-female company based in Nottingham. They specialise in creating performances that are exciting and relevant to a wide range of audiences - especially those that might believe dance is not for them.

This latest show celebrates the everyday; with their tongues firmly in their cheeks the mundane is turned upside down, resulting in witty and thought-provoking theatre which will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

Tickets will cost £11 (£12 on the door) or £5 for students in full time education (£6 on the door). They can be bought online from by Paypal, from Taylor’s Florist or on the door. Enquiries from 07718153117

Not to be missed! Friday 20th March, Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, Barrow
