Now Is the Hour

Now Is the Hour

Come along to the Teenage Amphitheatre in Telford's magnificent Town Park and join Hotbuckle Productions for a light hearted reflection on the second world war.

A light hearted reflection on the second world war featuring a collection of scenes, letters and popular songs of the era. Much of this short play is taken from actual letters and writings of the people who experienced it. We hope you'll sing along with us if you know the songs!

Performers are Adrian Preater, Gemma Aston and Mathilda Preater with accompaniment music recorded under lockdown conditions by Lorraine Preater.

Staff and signage will help you maintain social distance when you arrive, leave and move about the venue.

STAY ALERT > CONTROL THE VIRUS > SAVE LIVES

Most performances go ahead rain or shine! But please note the following:-

If it’s raining at the start time, we’ll forge ahead in the hope that the rain will clear up soon. It will have to be raining very hard indeed for the start to be delayed.

If conditions become genuinely unsafe, for example if the performance space is flooded or there is a lightning storm, we will stop the show.

Light to medium rain won’t put us off, but if rain is heavy or torrential (and the audience can’t hear the performance) we will stop the show until the rain clears sufficiently for us to continue.

 If we can’t go ahead due to the weather, we will transfer your tickets to another performance or refund your ticket money. If we get through most of the performance and then have to stop because of heavy rain, we’ll transfer your tickets to a different performance.
