Star Quality at Buxton Fringe!

Seann Miley Moore

As well as providing a platform for the stars of tomorrow, the Fringe provides a welcoming space for the celebrities of today. Just announced is the appearance of Seann Miley Moore, the supremely talented Australian musical theatre star and singer who came to fame on the 2015 X Factor. He will be starring in leoe&hyde’s 21st-century romcom musical Guy, Underground at the Arts Centre Studio. This is the team that brought us the multi-award-winning The Marriage of Kim K last year so we are expecting great things.

Rock Follies actor Rula Lenska is meanwhile bringing to life the memoirs of her mother who escaped Naz-occupied Poland in Rula Lenska: From Dzikow to Willesden Green at the Rotunda.

Rob Rouse - Bottom in BBC Two’s Upstart Crow - is appearing twice at the Fringe, performing his own stand up show Underground at the Old Clubhouse, and, intriguingly, also co-starring with Fringe Award-winning Helen Rutter in her hit play The Ladder, Underground at the Arts Centre Studio.

With the printed programme due out at the end of this month, we are excited about our bumper Fringe featuring the biggest ever comedy section and joint biggest theatre category (2013 was a a biggie too). Look out for more blogs and comprehensive Fringe press releases highlighting the fabulous acts we have across all categories.

Following last year’s successful programme redesign, we’ve made some additional tweaks to make it even easier to see ticket information. A big print run of 20,000 is scheduled with our distribution team going into overdrive!

Why not join us at our celebratory programme party at The Green Man Gallery, Buxton on Saturday June 2nd, 7-9pm? It is a free, open-to-all event with light refreshments (donations encouraged!) and extracts from shows. We look forward to seeing you.
