I Am Looking For

Tickets Available for The Tempest Joint Production

William Shakespeare’s The Tempest is Bolton School’s Joint Production for 2018, and tickets are now on sale. The show will run from Wednesday 14 until Saturday 17 March 2017, with each performance at 7.00pm in the Arts Centre.

On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man and this is no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the people who have wronged him. Creative a vast magical storm, he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake, they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems ...

Featuring devised percussion and elements of dance, Saturday tickets for this holy anticipated production have already sold out. However, there is still limited availability on Thursday and Friday, with best availability on Wednesday.

Tickets are £5.00 and are available from the Girls’ Division Reception Foyer at lunchtimes (1.00-1.45pm). Alternatively, please contact Mrs C Sutcliffe (CSutcliffe@boltonschool.org) with ticket requests and enquiries.

As The Tempest is an A Level text, the performance promises to be useful to Sixth Form students studying English Literature as well as those with an interest in drama and Shakespeare. Any school groups interested in attending are welcome, and may contact Mrs Sutcliffe.


All ticketing information is correct as of 1 February. However, please contact Mrs Sutcliffe for the most up-to-date ticketing information.
