Enjoy open air theatre at Gatton this July


Tickets are now on sale for Gatton Community Theatre’s 2017 open air promenade production, taking place at Gatton Park in July.

At times hilariously funny, and at others poignant, “If a Sparrow Should Fall – A Man in Search of a Miracle” will follow Legion, a homeless ex-serviceman, as he and his dog, and a sparrow, embark on a journey of self-discovery.

During Legion’s travels, he meets a number of animals – a cat, a mouse, a magpie and a disgruntled cow – and realises he is the only person who can hear the animals talk.  The creatures tell him stories of a miracle healer, and so he sets off to find the man who performs these miracles, eventually meeting Lamb – a gardener who gives him the courage and strength to carry on.

Familiar stories from the bible are the inspiration for the animals’ own original stories, in a tale of friendship and love suitable for both adults and children.

The 35-strong cast comes from across the Reigate & Banstead area, and are directed by Libby Egwuba.  The play, written by Anna Thompson, has musical accompaniment from Merstham’s PATH Choir.

The Borough of Reigate & Banstead Arts Council is supporting the production.

Performances are at 7.30pm on July 12-14, 16, 19-21 and 23, with the performance on Sunday 16th being signed.

Tickets are £12 for adults and £8 for children. A family ticket (2 + 2) is available for £30. Booking is at www.ticketsource.co.uk/gct or telephone 0333 666 3366. Booking fees apply.
