A taste of spring and summer shows

We are a theatre for all seasons – so as winter turns to spring, and thoughts turn to summer we have launched our new programme of events.

Our Easter youth musical (April 11-13) will be Matilda Junior, a slightly shorter version of the popular musical with all the favourite songs, featuring 30 talented young local performers aged eight to 18.

There are four shows lined up for our summer season. It opens with The Three Musketeers (July 30 – August 7) featuring the team who staged a hilarious spoof of the Hound of the Baskervilles last summer, who are back with an equally madcap version of a classic.

Next comes a chilling ghost story, based on the Henry James’ novel Turn of the Screw (August 9-14), a Ray Cooney modern adaptation farce It’s Her Turn Now (August 16-24), and finally an Ayckbourn comedy classic Relatively Speaking (August 27-31).

After the success of a weekend of open air events at Mannington Hall last year, there’s  an encore from  the Lee Vasey Big Band who return to host a dance party on July 12. The following day Opera Anywhere will stage a picnic event featuring Gilbert and Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore.

There’s a host of other family friendly shows, music acts, live screenings and movies on the way too.

Our new brochure is downloadable via this website, or pop into the theatre to pick one up – or hopefully linger and read it over a cuppa in our welcoming Hub coffee bar.
