New Theatre Company Steps Out

Louise Bryning PR

A new theatre company are finding their feet in Lancaster and have exciting plans for 2020.

Three Left Feet have already seen success with their first two shows — A Christmas Carol which they performed in the King Street branch of Waterstones — and A Fisherman’s Tale presented at the Maritime Museum.

The company like to present their work in unconventional spaces in Lancaster and this summer will be venturing outdoors for two events in Williamson Park — A Midsummer Night’s Dream set in the Pendle Witch era and an Arts In The Park festival.

They also want to create opportunities for others, like them, who enjoy participating in the performing arts.

Three Left Feet are Elspeth Dale, Lara Orriss and Lucy Malaihollo-Sheppard who met at Lancaster University Theatre Group(LUTG).

Among the LUTG productions they’ve been involved with are Twelfth Night in Williamson Park; An Ideal Husband in the Royal Kings Arms Hotel; The 39 Steps in the Dalton Rooms and a musical version of Jekyll and Hyde at the Nuffield Theatre.

“At university, we spent all our spare time making theatre because we love it and I always wanted to start a theatre company when I graduated,” said Elspeth.

The company received a Thrive Not Just Survive grant from Clic Sargent, funding to support young people diagnosed or treated for cancer to fulfil their ambitions, as both Elspeth and Lara had cancer as teenagers.

Three Left Feet have also been supported by Work in Progress, based at Lancaster University, which helps students to achieve enterprising goals.

“For a small city, we think that Lancaster is a good place to produce events related to their setting and we’re really pleased with the response we’ve had so far to our shows,” said Elspeth.
