MacLEOD HISTORIES

HARRY POTTER READINGS


Front Row Theatre offers both readings and storytelling that can bring classic English texts to life and are perfect for smaller venues such as libraries, pubs and restaurants. Oral tradition is at the heart of historical record and entertainment alike, and whether it is memory of our parents reading to us as children or listening to tales of adventure from friends over a mug of beer, we are all in thrall to the spoken word. Listening and engaging in a good story appeals to all ages, and Front Row aims to continue this age-old past-time.

Telling the stories that shaped the clan MacLeod


Continuing the oral tradition of his family, Fraser MacLeod revels in the opportunity to share the histories of his clan. Bloody and entertaining, these legends cover the importance of the Faerie Flag, why the bull is so symbolic to the MacLeods and we find out about the chief's folly in challenging the king!

THE ADVENTURES OF HARRY POTTER


1500-2000 kr (plus travel) per set


Relive or discover for the first time the legend of The Boy Who Lived!


Many of us know about the world of Harry Potter and the adventures of the three friends, Harry, Ron and Hermione. Front Row Theatre gives you the chance to relive or discover those early days, when things seemed that bit more innocent and those important friendships were forming.


Fraser MacLeod’s readings, in English, from JK Rowling’s popular novels takes us back to when Harry first finds out about the world of magic. We see that Halloween in the magic world is not all pretend, and that finding ourselves in a fantasy world is often fraught with danger. Let’s experience together how Harry’s world is turned upside down, and how his life-changing friendships are formed. Welcome to Hogwarts!
