Release of four shows including Status Quo's Francis Rossi, former England cricket captain David Gower and comedian sees biggest day of year in sales for Stamford Corn Exchange
Friday (April 26) saw the biggest day of the year at Stamford Corn Exchange in the box office due to the release of four high-profile shows.
Tickets were released for Status Quo's Francis Rossi, rock band Thunder, former England cricket captain David Gower and comedian Andy Parsons.
The box office team were flat out, which continued over the weekend.
Manager of the Broad Street theatre Judith Mackie said: "Each agent was insistent the date of release had to correspond with the date of the national notification of the touring show's, so we didn't really have a choice but to go with it.
"We run a very antiquated system of booking on one machine only which was great fun all queuing up to process tickets! We are hoping to gain funding in the near future to upgrade to a new software for ticketing as we clearly have outgrown our current system."
The team is looking forward to a mega May with famous faces including Jason Donovan this Thursday, Dr John Cooper Clarke, Josh Widdicombe, Alan Johnson.
Judith added: "We have some massive touring musical shows this month which over the years we have perfected fitting on to our smaller than West End sized stage.
"Direct from the West End we have the biggest touring production of The Elvis Years starring original Jailhouse rock lead Mario Kombou, who undertakes 12 costume changes, with full backing band and dancers. A week later we are at it again with The Tina Turner Experience. This fully live energetic show charts the life and career of one of the worlds iconic performer, with a 10 piece band and dancers. We also have a third large touring show Buble meets Sinatra, the show down!
"We have still managed to fit a family show of Alice in Wonderland and by popular demand we have the return of the Phoenix Belles Burlesque with A Spring Fling."
