New Videos for Wanted - One Body!

Take a look at our video, below, created to promote Wanted - One Body! We have produced a video to go along with the stage shows for a few years, which you can enjoy in the GDS TV section at the right. This one is a spoof of Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show, which has a lot of similarities with Wanted - One Body! Creepy characters and an atmospheric country house location abound!

This was filmed at Harlaxton Manor with the generous co-operation of The University of Evansville. We also created a trailer (which more closely reflects the actual performance!) which you can see below.

Wanted - One Body will be on at the Guildhall from 1st to 4th December, and we're offering a special discounted rate for groups. Take £1 off every ticket for groups of 8 or more. We hope you'll have as much fun watching the show as we have had in rehearsals!

Wanted and Found: One Suit of Armour!

Following an intensive search and coverage in The Grantham Journal, Grantham Dramatic Society have successfully found a suit of armour for 'Wanted - One Body!'

Help came from an unexpected source: a medieval re-enactment society! Paul Spence, a member of 'Lord Burgh's Retinue', has generously offered to lend us his fifteenth-century replica suit of armour. Mr Spence commented: "I'm more than happy to lend my reproduction armour for Grantham Dramatic Society's play. We are always glad to help out worthy causes like this."

Vicky Williamson, Grantham Dramatic Society's Chairperson, said: "Paul Spence's help has made a huge difference to the production and we can't wait to get into the theatre to see the armour on stage. It will make a real impact!"

As described on their website, http://www.lordburghsretinue.co.uk/, the Retinue is dedicated to the accurate recreation of prominent Lincolnshire historical figure Sir Thomas Burgh's retinue and household. The group promote knowledge and interest in the Burgh family and its homes at The Medieval Manor House in Gainsborough, and other associated sites such as Lincoln Castle, demonstrating many varied and exciting aspects of life in 15th century England.

The comedy whodunnit 'Wanted - One Body' will be performed at the Guildhall Arts Centre from 1st to 4th December.
