OFFSTAGE Presents: The Days Of The Doctor
This unique show will be spoofing the 50th anniversary special before it’s even been shown! As group spokesman, Kasterborous‘ own Barnaby Eaton Jones says:
‘We’re pre-empting the half-centenary celebration…by staging our spoof of the episode BEFORE we’ve even seen it! You can’t get more topical than that!’
Fans can look forward to John Hurt’s Doctor as ‘The Storyteller’, with a focus on the new series but with some kisses to the past classic era.
The OFFSTAGE Theatre Group were well-known for putting on the first Doctor Who comedy shows to be written specifically for conventions and convention audiences. These ran from 2005 to 2007 and included specially-written cameos from Colin Baker in two of the shows. As Jones says:
‘We’ve been brought out of our retirement to regenerate again and to take hold of the TARDIS controls once more. So come with us on a silly journey to Gallifrey and beyond. We’re back and it’s about timey-wimey.’
The venue is The Cockpit Theatre, Avoncroft Museum, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire and there’ll be four performances during the day. For ticket details visit their official site.
