Six new shows have been added to the programme for the fourth Liverpool Theatre Festival – including a tribute to music powerhouse Gladys Knight, a comedy murder mystery, and a Shakespeare play for children.
Liverpool Theatre Festival will run for 11 days during the school holidays (July 20-30) at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church in Liverpool city centre. This is a new date for the festival, which usually takes place in September. The festival’s new-work and fringe event, Little LTF, will this year take place in October to ensure no clash with the city’s Eurovision celebrations. The summer dates for the main LTF mean a programme of daytime family shows can be included.
The six new shows are Gladys Knight…The Story, Locomotive For Murder: The Improvised Whodunnit, Mama G in The Magic Bookmark, The Monkey With No Bum, Shakespeare's The Tempest and The Oogy Boogy Man.
The new shows have been added to a programme that already features the likes of Sober Companion starring Joe McGann and Jake Norton, Fred The Musical, Viva Tenori – A Celebration of the Three Tenors, Whatever Happened To Billy Kenny, Perfectly Frank, and Magic Gareth: Level Up.
All 12 shows are now on sale, with more to be announced shortly.
