It’s been longer than I intended since the last post, but I’ve got some exciting stuff to communicate this time for those that haven’t already seen them on my social media platforms.
First of all a massive thank you must go to Tony Ward at Topcolor Fotoworx on Hessle Road in Hull, and to Chris Corbett, for their collaboration on our advertising poster for An Ordinary Hero: The Jack Harrison Story and our new logo for the Jack Harrison VC MC Statue Campaign.
At this point, because this is our production poster, I do have to tell everybody that this production does involve flashing images, strobe lighting and smoke effect, you need to be aware of this if you’re planning on getting a ticket and coming to see it.
Our cast continue to work extremely hard, indeed Chris Corbett and Chloe Oldridge-Field were brought in for an extra rehearsal this week because the chemistry between their characters, Jack and his wife Lilian, is absolutely all important, so they have to be completely natural with each other, which only comes through them having time together rehearsing, along with director Laura Suter.
As you will be able to see on the poster, which is very obviously adorned by Chris, tickets will cost £10 while concessions, including forces veterans will cost £8 for any of the performances, they are available now at Park Street Performing Arts Centre and online here as well.
Of course there is another agenda here that goes way beyond selling tickets for this production, that is because we are aiming to raise enough money, however long it might take, to have a statue of Jack erected in Hull City Centre, which is where all the proceeds from this production are going, while also educating people about this incredible true story, as well as reminding everybody we’re still here.
It also happens to be the nearest weekend to Jack’s birthday, which is on 12th November. I was also told something quite interesting by our director recently, she says she was told about some funding we may be able to access from two massive organisations which are usually reserved for just such a project, I will be chasing these up this week.
I will finish for now, but make no mistake, it will not take as long again for me to post in here, see you soon. #Statue52 #2Legends1Man #JackHarrisonVC
