Get ready Coronation Street fans … Tyrone & Kirk are coming to River Rock! Portrayed by actors Alan Halsall and Andy Whyment, their characters have become classic while their antics – on-and-off camera – now legendary. Earlier this year, Alan – who has been playing the happy-go-lucky “Tyrone Dobbs” since 1998 – won a National Television Award for “Best Dramatic Male Performance”. Andy – who joined the cast in 2000 – has been honoured with a British Soap Award for “Best Comedy Performance” for his portrayal of the clueless “Kirk Sutherland”.
Coronation Street – which centers around the domestic lives of the working class who reside in the fictional town of Weatherfield – premiered in the UK on ITV Granada Television in 1960 and was soon syndicated on other ITV franchises. By the late 60’s, the series began airing internationally in Australia and New Zealand as well as in Canada on CBC Television. In 2010, the series became the world’s longest-running television soap opera in production when CBS’s As the World Turns was cancelled in the United States. In a lively and interactive format, Alan and Andy will share behind-the-scenes stories on Corrie’s cobbles followed by a Q&A session with the audience. Whether you’re a casual viewer or a lifelong fan, this is one show to mark on your calendar. Don’t miss Coronation Street’s Tyrone & Kirk: Causin’ A Stir when it comes to River Rock Casino Resort on June 20, 2014.
