Michael Wooldridge is bringing his silent film accompaniment skills very much to the fore to play for live stage show, ‘Vintage Hitchcock’.
The show takes three of Alfred Hitchcock’s famous tales, The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps, and presents them as if they were live radio plays, complete with live sound effects, doors slamming, thunder, footsteps etc, just as they used to be made in the 1940s. Michael will be playing his electronic organ on stage in the role of the studio orchestra, to enhance the dramas with live music for suspense, shock, romance and horror, just as he does when playing theatre organ for silent films and, indeed, as Hollywood still do in the movies.
The plays feature a team of five actors performing over sixty roles and recreating everything from a daring train chase to a devastating explosion in a spooky yet witty and exciting entertainment that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Vintage Hitchcock is at the Connaught Theatre in Worthing on November 14th at 7.30pm and on November 15th at 2.00pm & 7.30pm. Tickets are just £14.50 or £12.50 for concessions. Book now on 01903 206 206 or visit www.worthingtheatres.co.uk
