Michael Pinchbeck| The Post Show Party Show
Michael Pinchbeck’s parents, Tony and Vivienne, met in 1970 after an amateur dramatic version of The Sound of Music. He was a Nazi. She was a nun. Tonight Michael is on stage with his mum and dad to remember the post show party where it all began.
Mixing genuine performance memories from the past with the iconic soundtrack to the musical, this poignant re-enactment asks what is professional and what is amateur, what is present and what is absent?
The Post Show Party Show receives its UK premiere at Leeds Met Studio after a sell-out performance at Springdance in Holland. Join us for a glass of Shloer and a sing-song as we stand in the wings of the story. You are invited to the post show party.
Michael first worked with his father as part of his Masters Degree when he devised a piece of work with his father’s amateur dramatic group and enjoyed the natural rapport they had. He then started working with his Dad on recreating his own christening and ended up delving even further into the past.
The Post Show Party Show is performed by Michael and Tony with Michael’s mother Vivienne taking a non-performance role operating the lights and sound from on stage and tells the story of the dramatic post show incident that led to the start of his parent’s relationship.
