What we're about
Welcome to up-in-the-cheap-seats. This group aims to bring together people who share a common aim - to see more theatre at reasonable prices.
All are welcome at our events - I've met so many lovely people and everyone has been so friendly and enthusiastic. Group sizes are usually small, so that we can meet up before and get a chance to talk to each other. We have a great group of organisers with varied tastes and interests; which keeps our calendar filled with mainstream and more eclectic events.
With over 540 events in the 2 + years we've been going, the variety of shows we've seen is immense:
Musicals: Wicked, Billy Elliot, Kiss Me Kate, Les Miserables, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Shrek, Scrooge, Lion King, Singing in the Rain, A Chorus Line, Book of Mormon
A-listers - Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Kristen Scott Thomas, Daniel Radcliffe, David Walliams, Rowan Atkinson, Kim Cattrall, Jude Law, Rupert Everett, Bradley Cooper, Lindsay Lohan, Robert Lindsay, James McAvoy, Emma Thompson
Drama: Too many to list - Shakespeare, Pinter & Ibsen Galore as well as some more modern work - we're regularly found in the Almedia, Young Vic, Old Vic, National Theatre, Royal Court, Barbican & many more smaller fringe venues.
Opera: Anything & everything - from the classics such as Madam Butterfly, La Traviata, La Boheme to modern opera such as the Walt Disney & Anna Nicole operas. We're regulars in the gods at the Royal Opera and occasionally at English National Opera.
Ballet & Dance: Lets just say we're regulars at The Royal Ballet, English National Ballet and Sadlers Wells.
There is a one off joining fee of £2 to be a member of up-in-the-cheap-seats. These funds will be used to cover the meetup fees and cover expenses associated with running the group.
Hope to see you at an event soon,
