The Lauritzen Fund awarded their acting prizes for 2013 on 25th September and Stig was awarded the Wauw Prize which included 30,000 DKK.

Stig in New Musical and this Year's Christmas Tour Guest Performer

9th January 2013


Dear Newsletter Recipient,

 

STIG IN NEW MUSICAL

Stig has the lead role in a new historical musical which will open at the Music House in Aarhus (Musikhuset Aarhus) 19th September 2013. Together with Ole Thestrup and Pernille Schroeder he will convey a unique piece of Danish history, build on our famous treasure the Frigate Jutland (Fregatten Jylland) and where the audience will meet market women from Nyboder, merchants and crooks on land and at sea, as well as a colourful gallery of mariners, sirens, sailors, officers and other good people. The musical will have an ensemble of 30 who will perform the beautiful songs.

The musical tour coincides with the 150-year marking of the end of the war in 1864 and thus offers an excellent opportunity for a “culture caravan” through the 20 Danish towns, where the musical will be combined with the participation of experts from the “Fregate Jutland Museum” and other relevant museums from around the country who will convey genuine anecdotes and expert knowledge about the era.

The manuscript is written by the author Thomas Hoeg and the music is composed by Kim Soerensen, both are known from musical successes such as Atlantis, Peter Sabroe, The Egtved Girl (Egtved Pigen) and The Light over Skagen (Lyset over Skagen).

Read more about the new musical here: www.fregatten-musical.dk and  http://musikhusetaarhus.dk/kalender/28102/


See the preliminary tour on www.stigrossen.com

Ticket sale for the shows in The Music House in Aarhus has started and ticket prices are 400, 350 and 300 DKK. 

Tickets are sold via www.bnilletlugen.dk or via phone no. +45 89 40 40 40.

Note also that tickets for the shows in Holstebro and Viborg are also available via www.billetnet.dk


In addition we can reveal that

This year’s guest performer on the Christmas Tour will be Thomas Meilstrup. A young man who many will remember from the big anniversary Christmas Tour in 2009.

The collection in aid of the Christmas Seal Foundation (Julemaerkefonden), which took place during the Christmas Tour last year,reached 105,000 Danish Kroner. A very impressive result that Stig is very pleased with.

 

Very best wishes
