Interactive and Immersive Events

The Lost Boys create immersive and interactive events using live performance and cinema technology and/or in non-traditional performance spaces.

The British Film Institute Project

Dead of Night  and The Innocents

dead of night 3

The Lost Boys were awarded funding by the BFI to create two bespoke film and theatre events focusing on Classic British Horror with the aim of developing new audiences. The Lost Boys produced two interactive promenade productions that book-ended each film. The resulting multi art events took place at Derby Guildhall and Sudbury Hall National Trust Property to sold out audiences. Many guests had not seen the films before and thoroughly enjoyed the combined experience of going behind the scenes at old listed buildings for live entertainment and cinematic viewing.

Halloween

Hammer Halloween: The Blood of Dracula

The sequel to the 2015 sell out show, sees Van Helsing return to Sudbury Hall, to clean up the remaining mess from last year, The audience is (sometimes) willing fellow monster hunters. Together they tracked the werewolf unaware that they were mere pawns in another creatures game, featuring all of your Hammer  favourites and this time including Frankenstein’s monster too.

Hammer Halloween

Hammer new

In 2015, The Lost Boys co-produced with The National Trust – Sudbury hall to create a new and unique event for Halloween. The Lost Boys produced another immersive interactive promenade performance that saw Victor Frankenstein control the Hammer Monsters with a plan to take over the world. Only Professor Van Helsing and the plucky audience stood in his way. This event will see a sequel return to Sudbury Hall in 2016.

Christmas

Who doesn’t love Christmas? We love Christmas and it is a great chance to let your hair down and catch some entertaining, often ridiculous, yet always heart-warming  theatre. Here at Lost Boys HQ that is exactly what we create. See below for more info on our Christmas productions and where to catch them next!

A Christmas Carol

The Lost Boys take on the Dickens Classic story of rebirth and redemption. Creating a fully integrated BSL promenade performance working with Sarah Gatford Ltd and funded by The Arts Council of England, featuring all of the characters in the novel played by 3 actors, as the audience are guided along Scrooge’s journey by Dickens himself.

 

Thanks for making it all happen. You have truly proved yourselves to be extremely talented & adaptable. National first with the National Trust – not a bad way to celebrate the festive season. Proud to have been a part of it!               Sarah Gatford Ltd

5 * A Christmas Carol was amazing ~ fantastic acting, hilarious script and genuinely entertaining. Also immensely impressed that it was signed, making it accessible for deaf\hard of hearing audiences. Can’t wait to see another production! Well done!           Sally Moseley

4 * Thank you for a lovely show at Sudbury Hall, the tale of Scrooge was both entertaining and hilarious. Went with my 7 month boy and he was enthralled by all the actors and in particular loved the ghost of Christmas past! The venue was also amazing and the staff very helpful. Looking forward to the next production.   Denise Johnson

 

A Digital Christmas Carol 2016

The Lost Boys and Quad co-produced and created a digitally enhanced A Christmas Carol for the festive season of 2016. This was a huge success and returns in 2017 with more performances. An education pack can be provided to schools along with optional workshops.
