Studio Audience Tickets

Due to COVID 19 restrictions ASPIRE has adapted the way it is to deliver it’s 2020 production ‘The Pecking Order’. Normally a large scale production with over a hundred and fifty young people involved across 6 ensembles ASPIRE is creating a filmed version of the original show. Each of the performance ensembles will have its own day of filming in the Civic Theatre in front of a live audience who will be talked through the plot of the show as we go by young cast members. The production will then be cut together and screened at the Civic Theatre on 7 February 2021.
