A local theatre company is offering theatre fans a unique opportunity to snap up a piece of theatrical history as it prepares to leave its Chester City centre home.
Tip Top Productions is holding a special “Yard Sale” at The Forum Studio Theatre in Chester on Sunday 23rd May between 11am and 3pm with everything from costumes and wigs to props and furniture available in return for a donation. The yard sale is being held as the company prepares to vacate the theatre which has been its home since 2007.
Speaking about this unique opportunity to take home a piece of theatre memorabilia from one of Tip Top’s numerous shows, Committee member Phil Cross said “With over 15 years’ worth of props, furniture and costumes which have been used in our productions during our time at the Forum Studio Theatre, we’ve got everything from attractive antiques to whimsical wigs and our Tip Top team of volunteers hope that you will find a little piece of theatrical history to take home with you for a small donation. It’s an exciting new chapter for Tip Top to be leaving the Forum Studio and we are expecting that the yard sale will be a trip down memory lane for all of our volunteers, performers and audience members over the past 14 years. The event is open for anyone and everyone, we will be operating a one-way system indoors and face masks will be compulsory.”
Meanwhile, Tip Top have announced that their first production of 2021 will take place at Theatr Clwyd as part of the welcome return of the Mold venue’s season of outdoor events. Tickets are now on sale for “Tip Top’s Summer at The Musicals” which takes place at Theatr Clwyd’s open-air theatre on Sunday 15th August at 3pm and 7pm.
