Help get Chichester College’s Golden Fleece to Edinburgh

June 27, 2017

Preparations are underway for a team of talented Chichester College students, who will be swapping the South Coast for Scotland this summer.

They will be taking their version of Jason and the Golden Fleece to the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August – but lucky audiences in Chichester will be able to enjoy exclusive previews later this month.

The students will be performing at two shows The ShowRoom at Chichester University on Wednesday 21 June – at 6pm and 8pm.

Money raised from the performances will go towards helping the students get to Edinburgh.

Andrew Green, deputy principal at Chichester College, said: “For the first time in our history, we are taking a show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and we couldn’t be happier.

“It costs a lot of money to get to Edinburgh, with travel and accommodation costs soaring during festival times so we’re holding special performances to help raise money.

“It is a fantastic show – our students and staff have written, produced and designed the show, set and costumes from start to finish and they have done an amazing job.

“This is a rare opportunity to see our show before we take it to Scotland, and it’s not to be missed.

“Not only will you enjoy a brilliant show, but you’ll also be helping them achieve their dreams.”

Physical, visual and comedic styles of performance will combine for a fun-filled, family-friendly retelling of the classic Greek myth, as audiences are invited to join Jason and his crew of heroic buffoon as they embark on an epic journey to fulfil his birthright.

Jason will battle giants, trick harpies, spar with a raging bull and outwit an army of soldiers, helped and hindered by the amusing – and sometimes infuriating – Argonauts as the gods guide him on his quest.

Tickets cost £5 for adults, £4 for under 16s, students and over 60s. To book, please email lucie.daughtrey@chichester.ac.uk
