Upcoming events at West Yorkshire Playhouse

I thought my followers might be interested in events coming up at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and a couple of events at the Leeds Grand and Bradford's Theatre at The Mill:

Box Office: 0113 213 7700


Peaches over pumpkins and toe-tapping rehearsals
It's less about the pumpkins and more about the peach as we've been on location filming a trailer for our Christmas production of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. Take a peek at some of the first shots from the rehearsal room of Irving Berlin's White Christmas.
First look at the cast in action
White Christmas is the musical spectacular that has it all: classic songs, a live jazz band and a cracking West End cast. Check out the company in action, straight from the rehearsal room.
It's all peachy for James
We've been on location filming a tasty trailer with a member of our new 8-10s Youth Theatre. Visit our facebook page to see 'the making of' the trailer. 
The Kite Runner live on stage
There are just a few tickets remaining for the stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's bestselling novel. Don't miss your chance to see this beloved tale of friendship spanning cultures and continents. From 3 – 8 November.
'Utterly absorbing from start to finish'
The Mail on Sunday
Aspects Of Love
Leeds Amateur Operatic Society return with another
all-singing, all-dancing classic. With Lord Lloyd Webber's gift for creating a toe-tapping tune combined with the passion and energy of the company, it's a great evening of entertainment not to be missed. From 7 15 November.
Kings of England present
Where We Live & What We Live For (Parts 1 & 2)
22 November
Tickets £8
Following its sell-out revival performances at the Edinburgh Festival, the original father and son duo return with Part 1, and bring the world premiere of Part 2 of this unique double bill to the Playhouse. This funny, speculative and thought provoking drama is presented as part of Compass Festival.
