Laurence Owen & Lindsay Sharman in association with Seabright Productions present
The Time Machine
‘Wonderful’ – Stephen Fry
Saturday 21 July
Gates open 6.30pm for the 8.30pm performance
We have been listening to one of last week’s Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts from The Sheffield Crucible. The Martinu Fantasy for theremin, oboe, string quartet and piano is just beautiful and has made us even more excited about our performance of HG Well’s The Time Machine in which many sound effects are made live on stage by a theremin!
The year is 1959. It is the golden age of sci-fi. A mysterious man arrives at Radio Woking to present a thrilling musical adaptation of HG Wells’s classic story. Prepare yourself for show-stopping songs! Live sound effects! And a rip-roaring original score!
‘The Time Machine is a prime example of innovative storytelling. The musical numbers are deliciously amusing, while the spoken narrative is designed to captivate the audience and keep them on their toes. Both performers demonstrate strong acting ability, and Sharman in particular knows how to earn laughs from a crowd. This is an intriguing adaptation of a beloved science-fiction novel you won’t want to miss.’ **** Edinburgh Festival Magazine.
‘With The Time Machine, Sharman and Owen have created a delightful, charming production, bringing a fresh new take to a much loved story. Make the time to see it!’ ***** Broadway World.
