Here it is, what we’ve all been waiting to hear (read). Theatre is back! It’s been a long hiatus during lockdown without live theatre. Our beloved theatre was closed for over a year except for one live show, but as the country opens up, we await our turn with increased anticipation. At long last, patrons and performers will be making their way back into their treasured venue, with the likes of Suggs, Kevin Quantum, Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote, Judy & Liza: The Musical and Freddy the Teddy.
Karen Foster, the theatre’s Chief Executive, says, “After a most unusual year, we look forward to welcoming patrons back to the theatre, bringing the very best of comedy, music and drama, right here in your local theatre. Our heartfelt thanks go to those performers, staff members and funders who have supported us in our endeavours to re-open and to bring joy back to the stage.”
Shows from 2020 have been rescheduled into 2021. Fan favourites such as The Fizz, Tony Christie and Suggs are among those with new dates. Many of the rescheduled shows now have tickets available, so if you missed out on tickets the first time, now is your chance to buy!
New shows have also been added to the programme, which are on sale to the public now! Back by popular demand is the brilliant magician Kevin Quantum who returns this summer with a socially distanced magic show like no other. Comedy fans will be delighted by the return of The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre – the world’s funniest footwear return to the Garrick studio for a hilarious performance.
TV Historian Lucy Worsley returns with two performances in one day to tell us all about a Very British Murder and If Walls Could Talk. Lots of exciting things to come indeed!
The Box Office has reopened on reduced hours on Fridays and Saturdays, 11am to 1pm. Fridays are exclusively for people to phone the Box Office line to book tickets. On Saturdays, the theatre doors will be open for patrons to come and book tickets in our temporary Box Office location, which will be in the Green Room. Please wear a face covering if you intend to visit the Box Office in person.
Our first show is A Black Country Night Out on Thursday 20th May.
