The Harcourt Players are Simon Othen and Luke Wurmli, and they have written musical scores for two classic silent movies fro the early 1900s – Buster Keaton’s “The Goat” being one and Charlie Chaplin’s “Pay Day” being the other.
With the audience focused on the films, The Harcourt Players weave their way through these two hilarious classics highlighting the ups and downs, chases and falling in love scenes, using an array of instruments such as guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, harmonicas and a variety of percussion.
So come and enjoy an evening with two of the silent movie era’s greats and laugh your socks off (banana peel’s not included!).
Tickets are £10.00 each for Adults and £5.00 for Children, and available through https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-harcourt-players-sunday-14th-october-700pm-tickets-49669868915?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
If you are local to Malvern tickets are also for sale through Malvern TIC (Tourist Information Centre) or Carnival Records, both on Church Street in Malvern.
NB – I have had to remove the Pay-pal button for buying tickets direct from us as the coding seems to have developed a gremlin and several people have rung to say that they have been unable to purchase them – so for this reason please click on the link to the Eventbrite page above or visit TIC/Carnival records in person. Apologies for any inconvenience!
The seating (maximum capacity is 80) is unreserved so the doors will open half an hour before the performance starts so that you can select your seats and if you so wish, have a drink at the Bar (Limited bar available – championing local beers, cider and soft refreshments).
Doors will be opening at the slightly earlier time of 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start.
Each film is approximately 45 minutes long and will be separated by a short interval so that the evening will finish at approximately 9.00pm – perfect for a family night out!
