Bash Street Theatre - The Last Illusion

Bash Street Theatre are coming to St Ives Guildhall this week - with their latest production The Last Illusion.

A retired music hall couple look back and remember the good old days spent ‘treading the boards’ in the variety theatres of a by-gone age. But when they receive an invitation to revive their act for a local cabaret evening, René and Renaldo agree to come out of retirement and prepare for one last farewell performance. With live music, silent comedy and magical illusions, this family show will take you on a poignant ‘magical mystery tour’ to the past and back again. 

The show is on Wednesday (20th February 2013) - doors open at 7.00 pm - show starts at 7.30 pm.

A family show suitable for kids aged 7+.

Tickets are £10.00 (adults), £8.00 (children), £28.00 (family).
Available from St Ives Visitor Information Centre and on the door.
Also online from:
Cornish Riviera Box Office
