King's Lynn show offers discounted tickets
Theatre company the King's Lynn Players are offering discounted tickets on the opening night of their show Sunset Boulevard.
The gesture is a way of thanking those who hold a Blue Light Card whose work during the pandemic can be rewarded.
These cards are held by workers in the NHS, emergency services, social care and the Armed Forces and will offer a discounted ticket at £10.
The theatre company have spent the last year preparing for their latest production, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard The Musical.
It will be staged from May 18-21 at the Guildhall of St George, in Lynn.
This will be their first post Covid show and the members wanted to say a big thank you to those who helped them through the pandemic.
Publicity officer Tom Clarke, who plays Joe Gillis in the show said: "We hope this small gesture will show our appreciation to those workers who kept the country going through the pandemic.
"We decided that we would offer £10 tickets on the first night of our production to all Blue Light Card Holders.
"Blue Light Card provides those in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector and armed forces with discounts."
Sharon Fox, director said: " All of us benefit so much from the NHS and our other public services.
"We wanted to do something special to recognise them and say thank you to those who have worked tirelessly, particularly over the last two years as we have come through the covid pandemic."
Both Haunting and desperately sad, Sunset Boulevard revolves around the former star of the silent screen era, Norma Desmond.
Ageing and largely forgotten, she lives in her dilapidated Hollywood mansion with her butler and chauffeur Max.
Lost in her memories, she is stirred into action when struggling screenwriter, Joe Gillis, suddenly enters her home and her life.
Featuring showstoppers With One Look, The Perfect Year and the title track Sunset Boulevard this is one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best scores and is a first for West Norfolk.
Reduced price tickets are available now from the Alive Leisure Corn Exchange Box Office in person with a Blue Light Card.
