Pocket Productions Presents Fall of the Roman Umpire

Arts North West ON TOUR  Pocket Productions and Creating Drama Theatre Company are excited to announce the Fall of the Roman Umpire 2017 New England North West tour.   

A one man show written, directed & performed by Dennis Coard, star of ‘Home and Away’, ‘Blue Heelers’, ‘Stingers’ and ‘MDA’ , Fall of the Roman Umpire is a charming and cheeky self-narrated journey through life. Starting with Coard’s childhood emigration from Ireland with his family, the show is an intimate portrait of a journey through life, with the audience there beside him, sharing his joys, hopes and pain.

This is the first tour of the new Arts North West initiative Pocket Productions, offering the smaller communities in our region affordable and professional theatre and musical productions in venues such as community or school hall, school of art building or an undercover showground area.  Pocket Productions is a networked approach and based on the successful Arts North West ON TOUR model.

Fall of the Roman Umpire will be performed in following venues in 2017. Contact the venue for booking information.

Arts North West ON TOUR is excited to launch Pocket Productions

This is a new initiative by Arts North West to offer small communities in our region a
networked approach to find and fit hand-selected affordable theatre or musical
productions to tour to the smaller regional venues without a dedicated performing arts
venue. These productions will fit into venues like a community or school hall, school of art
building or an undercover showground area. Pocket Productions would be based on the
successful Arts North West ON TOUR model.
Arts North West ON TOUR now in its fifth year is an established network of community,
LGA, and privately managed venues/presenters (between 8-10 in the New England North
West region). Each network member pays an annual service fee for specialised tour
management. This includes the negotiation of a minimum of 2 negotiated professional
performing arts tours per year; itinerary programming; administration; marketing and
audience development, and the coordination of regional network meetings. More
information can be found at
Projects Officer, Nicci Parry-Jones explains, “We have been getting such good feedback
about audience satisfaction from the high quality performing arts touring our regional
theatres got us thinking that it would be wonderful if the smaller and sometimes more
remote communities had the same opportunity.”
For a nominal annual fee, the Pocket Productions package will include: sourcing and
managing the tour itinerary of one suitable touring production, assistance to each venue
to ensure the production is well promoted, liaison between the production company and
venue staff, advice on presentation, ticketing and promotion.
