Behind the Scenes at the Museum

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week, the College Players will perform 'Behind the Scenes at the Museum', an adaption for stage of the best-selling novel by Kate Atkinson.

It was great that Lindsey Hollingsworth, the Chairman of the College Players, Emma Feeney, playing the lead role as Ruby Lennox, and Claire Hilder, playing Patricia Lennox.

We heard all about the College Players, a bit of the background and the plot of 'Behind the Scenes at the Museum, but the ladies were careful not to give too much away...they also performed some lines for us, and got totally into character in the process.

Check it out at Brentwood Theatre THIS Thursday, Friday and Saturday (17th, 18th, 19th September) at 8.00pm.

Tickets cost £10 (£8 conc) and are available from the Box Office on 01277 200305.

At Brentwood Theatre, Galton Concert Promotions present BENJAMIN GROSVENOR IN
"Grosvenor’s performance was so alluring, so alive to the music’s poetry, and so
colourfully detailed." Daily Telegraph
Widely regarded, at age 17, as one of the most gifted young pianists in the world,
Benjamin first came to prominence as the outstanding winner age 11 of the Keyboard
Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition. Enthusiastically received recital
debuts at Wigmore Hall and St George’s, Bristol followed, with the Bristol Evening Post
remarking that his Chopin D flat Nocturne "was given a rendition of such maturity that
one was sometimes thinking of Rubinstein in his prime".
Benjamin made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2006, performing Ravel’s G major concerto
to acclaim, while further international debuts followed in Brazil and the Czech Republic
in Chopin's 2nd Concerto, with the latter performance drawing the headline "Genius
sets a very high benchmark", the review commenting that "all present knowledgeable
of music knew they were hearing a kind of miracle".
In January 2009 Benjamin played the Grieg concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra
to critical and audience acclaim at a sold out Royal Festival Hall –a performance
described in the Daily Telegraph as an interpretation of palpable character and astute
Benjamin will be playing the following:-
