April July 2018 cover

Do you enjoy folk music? We are delighted to continue our folk music concerts in our Studio Theatre with Martin Simpson on 20 April and John Kirkpatrick on 25 May.

'Strictly' viewers will be delighted to know that Ian and Oti will be swirling across the stage on 11 April and ballet fans of all ages are catered for with The Little Mermaid on 20 May and Ugly Duckling on 5 June. If it's an iconic dance routine you want to see, come along to a film screening of Sing-a-long-a Dirty Dancing on Tuesday 26 June.

We are thrilled to be welcoming back Dave Benson-Phillips in this year's Alice in Wonderland Easter Panto on 10 April. Our other family offerings in the April - July season are Cbeebies' Sarah and Duck's Big Top Birthday on Wednesday 9 May, Oliver Jeffers' Lost and Found on Wednesday 30 May and Black Magic - The Little Mix Show on Thursday 31 May.

There is an incredibly broad range of music on offer, from the original Searchers on Sunday 8 April and Les McKeown's Bay City Rollers on 25 April, to various outstanding tribute acts covering a diverse section of artists:

  • The Roy Orbison Story - Thursday 12 April

Those looking for nostalgic shows may wish to see The Fairey Brass Band on Sunday 15 April and Neil Sands' midweek matinee: Land of Hope and Glory on Wednesday 23 May. A stunning and elegant review of the life of Cilla Black soars its way onto the stage in Cilla and the Shades of the 60s on Wednesday 2 May.

Described as 'part rock show and part thespian' a new version of The War of the Worlds will be performed by The Pantaloons on Thursday 10 May. If you'd rather see a show without many pantaloons involved, then The Dreamboys return on Monday 30 April and Tuesday 1 May!

As always, we encourage you to support local talent performing at the theatre with various dance school shows across the coming months. Additionally, Boogie Nights will be presented by HMTC from 19 - 21 April, New Youth Theatre perform Hairspray on 19 and 20 June, plus Ripley and Alfreton Musical Theatre Company return to the stage with Made in Dagenham between 4 - 7 July.
