Theatre hosts wonderland of sensational screenings
Live and recorded screenings will be taking centre stage at Strode Theatre, in Street, this week, with four transmissions in the coming week.
Alan Bennett's new play People will be transmitted live from the National Theatre on Thursday, March 21, to an already full house, but tickets are still available for a repeat recorded screening on Sunday, March 24, at 5pm.
In this irreverently funny production directed by Nicholas Hytner, Frances De La Tour gives a performance as Lady Stacpoole, impoverished owner of a decaying stately pile, who is looking for ways to generate enough income to stop her sister giving the house to the National Trust, an option which Lady Stacpoole heartily detests.
On Wednesday, March 27, at 7.30pm, Strode is showing a recording from Melbourne Arts Centre of Puccini's Madam Butterfly with Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura in the title role.

Puccini's much-loved early 20th century opera receives a stunning interpretation with the beautiful costumes, colours and the quietly mythical spirituality of Moffatt Oxenbould's classic production.
Finally, on Thursday, March 28, at 7.15pm, people can catch a live screening straight from the Royal Opera House of Christopher Wheeldon's exuberant ballet Alice In Wonderland.
Lauren Cuthbertson dances Alice and Federico Bonelli the Knave, and the whole mad menagerie of the literary original is brilliantly recreated in this hugely enjoyable, witty, imaginative, colourful interpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy adventure for all ages.
Tickets for the National Theatre Live and Royal Opera House screenings are £15, concessions £13, and tickets for the Opera Australia screening are £12, concessions £10, available at www.strodetheatre.co.uk or from Strode Theatre's Box Office on 01458 442846.
Early booking is strongly recommended, or confirm availability before setting off to the Theatre as there are few tickets left for all the above.
