Foyer Gallery Exhibition

Stephen Price presents
THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

An exhibition of images by photographer STEPHEN PRICE

Stephen Price has been a photographer since the age of ten, when, in those days before instant gratification, he saved his pocket money for over a year to buy his first 110-format camera.

Since then, life has taken him on a hairpin path through the creative industries, from newspaper journalism to radio and television production, into writing books and lecturing. However, all that was purely to pay the bills. His first and enduring love is photography and this is reflected in an exhibition that covers a forty-year timespan, with portraits dating from the 1970s onwards.

We may live in a digital age, but Stephen still largely works with film cameras, mainly because he has never overcome that childhood thrill of getting prints back from the developer, but also because he likes the ‘retro’ feel that film gives; more grain, deeper blacks and a subtle quality to the captured light.

He only works with natural light, because it never occurred to him to buy a flashgun when he was a teenager and he has not learned how to use artificial lighting since. The exhibition title, The Beautiful People, is a play on the notion of fashion glamour. “I have never tried for that glossy, magazine look,” he maintains, “rather for something more uncertain and atmospheric. I never ask my subjects to pose, they just do whatever they want when I point a camera at them. My best shots have been semi-accidental, captured moments when the subject ignored the camera altogether. People are more beautiful when they aren`t trying to be.”




PERFORMANCES:  Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th May - nightly at 8pm

Community Musical

Northern Lights Theatre Company presents
INTO THE WOODS

The fabulous Stephen Sondheim Musical (currently, a major movie starring Johnny Depp and "Gavin & Stacey's" James Corden)

A twisted fairy tale comes to the Riverside!
Once upon a time, the island of Ireland was a great, big forest. The old folk say that a squirrel could have travelled from Coleraine to Cultra without its little feet ever once touching the ground! This was just as well, for the forest was very dangerous place, as the cast of Into The Woods is about to find out.

A Baker and his Wife are cursed by a Witch. To break the spell, they must pilfer the magical items that will satisfy the Witch. The problem is that these items are owned by Prince Charming, Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Jack of the Beanstalk fame.

Just when everyone`s deepest wishes appear to be coming true, disaster strikes. The characters must work together to escape total destruction... in the depths of the Woods.

Northern Lights is the Northern Regional College theatre company that previously brought you the much-acclaimed Les Miserables.

Be sure not to miss the magical transformation and bewitching beauty of Into the Woods!


To coincide with the NRC Performance of 'Into The Woods' the students had the brief of creating manipulated images inspired by the aesthetic of the movie and live production. The exhibition conjures the dangers of the woodland, surreal multi layered images interplay between reality and fantasy whilst generating the energy and vibrancy of the live performance. Come along a see the exhibition open from Wednesday 27th of May from 7PM - Saturday 30th May.

Lights Up Theatre Company presents
ANYTHING GOES

Lights Up's third, major summer production in the Riverside


Director/Musical Director – Ben Levy
Choreographer – Venessa Chapman






ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid production of ANYTHING GOES! Accompanied by a live orchestra Lights Up Theatre Company are once again taking the Riverside by storm with this timeless classic. Undoubtedly one of the greatest musicals in theatre history, Cole Porter’s first-class musical comedy is coming to Riverside Theatre this August!

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “You’re the Top,” and of course, “Anything Goes.” Don’t miss this show – it’s “So DELIGHTFUL, So DELICIOUS, So DE-LOVELY!”
