Get in on the action with Derby LIVE’s interactive theatre this summer, flex your detective skills with Whodunnit?!, catch the Golden Thief on A Wild Walk, or improve your musical theatre skills with the Summer Musical Theatre Workshop.
As part of Derby LIVE’s Outdoor Theatre and Cinema Season families can take part in Babbling Vagabonds’ A Wild Walk: The Golden Thief of Markeaton Park. Families can pit their wits against riddlers, puzzle makers and a tricksy wolf to discover the rascal who has been stealing the King’s apples. This outdoor theatrical walk will take the participants around Markeaton Park on a one hour uniquely interactive experience. A Wild Walk will be taking place between Friday 27th and Tuesday 31st July at Markeaton Park; tickets are £5 in advance, £8 on the day and free for under 3s.
Big Adventure Theatre Company’s Whodunnit?! puts the audience at the heart of the action. In every performance of this brand new musical murder mystery five lucky audience members will get the chance to get on stage and work alongside the show’s detective to try and solve the mystery. At the end of the show the whole audience will get to vote on who they think the culprit is. This one of a kind theatrical experience will be taking place on Wednesday 4th to Saturday 7th July at the Guildhall Theatre, tickets are available for £13.25, with concession prices from £11.25. For the chance to appear as one of the ‘detectives’ email firstname.lastname@example.org
