Railways of Leicestershire and Rutland (British Railway Pictorial) by David W. Webb
English | Nov. 29, 2007 | ISBN: 071103219X | 96 Pages | HQ PDF | 90.7 MB

Home to one of the earliest railways in the country, the Leicester & Swannington, Leicestershire was for many years almost a private fiefdom of the Midland Railway, though later other companies made inroads. This was an area rich in mineral wealth with both coal and iron ore deposits providing much freight traffic. Today, the railways of these two counties are a pale shadow of what they once were. Whilst some stone traffic remains, the passenger network has effectively shrunk to the ex-MR main line through Leicester and the cross-country route from Nuneaton through Melton Mowbray to Peterborough. The GC and the GN and LNWR joint lines have been completely closed, although a section of the former survives as the preserved Great Central, based at Loughborough.

A fearless Romeo and Juliet takes to the road from Hubbard Hall to …

The company rehearsing. Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts is about to set out on its twentieth Free Outdoor Shakespeare Tour. The acting company is bringing Shakespeare s most famous and popular play not only to its own community but to many other cities and towns in New York and Vermont.

Romeo and Juliet played by actors who are teens themselves. Two young kids in love, running towards each other quicker than they can think With the world against them and their hearts entwined,Their families fight,Adults try to drive them apart,Until tragedy and wondering how could this have happened? This fun, fast-paced Romeo and Juliet, directed by Hubbard Hall s new Executive Director David Snider, will bring the world of the play to vibrant life in ten beautiful settings.

With minimal props and costumes, the focus will be on the words, the actions, the actors and the setting. Each site will inform how we do what we do, with an emphasis on a fierce, fearless tackling of Shakespeare s world and words. Actual teenagers will play Romeo and Juliet.

With a mix of young talent and seasoned professionals, this company will mix Shakespeare s world with our own, exploring how age, authority, religion and family continue to shape us and what can happen when generations collide, or at least fail to communicate.
