Producer and director Richard Brindley said:
“I’m so excited to tour our production The Three Billy Goats Gruff. I’m looking forward to welcoming new family audiences to this fun-filled show and hopefully inspiring some first-time theatre goers to the joys of live theatre once again. Theatres across the UK are still feeling the pinch of the cost of living crisis, with venues and commercial companies, including Lost the Plot, battling to keep theatre affordable and accessible for everyone, so now more than ever, touring theatre companies are looking forward to welcoming audiences back to support live theatre!”
Maureen McAllister, Manager of the Palace Theatre said
“I was absolutely delighted that Lost the Plot Theatrical launched their first tour of The Three Billy Goats Gruff with us – to have had such a new and vibrant company with a brand-new production coming to our theatre was perfect for our resident and visiting audiences. We saw lots of happy smiling faces trip, trap, trapping through our doors in February and I’m sure they will on future tours to come”.
