From the amazing musical Let it Be to the chuffing brilliant Full Monty and the spine chilling Dracula, there’s always a show for everyone at The Everyman Theatre and the NEW Autumn season line up with an all star line up is no exception!
The new season kicks off on the 9th October with the return of Stephen Daldry’s multi award winning production of JB Priestley’s classic thriller An Inspector Calls after a sell out West End season.* This is followed by the equally thought provoking and pertinent powerful Shakespearean tragedy Othello opening at The Everyman on Tuesday 16th October. You can WIN tickets to your choice of performance by clicking this link but you’ll have to be quick! Entries close Monday 8th October!
Later in the season, more thrills and spills can be found in the heart-stopping new production of The Girl on the Train starring the sensational Samantha Womack, which comes to The Everyman in February. Tickets are selling fast with an extra matinee date now added due to demand! And if this isn’t exhilarating enough then Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery The Mousetrap is set to take to the stage in March.
If you’re in need of some light relief then there’s plenty of comedy choice in a dynamite new comedy The Comedy About a Bank Robbery and also in the form of the new play by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, Trial by Laughter. It’s worth noting that there will be an audio described performance on Thursday November and Tuesday’s performance will be followed by a not to be missed Question and Answer session with Ian Hislop and Nick Newman!
More laughter is to follow with the fabulously funny comedy The Messiah, starring Hugh Dennis, John Marquez and Lesley Garrett. This promises to be the best and most magical Nativity you will ever see and is followed by this year’s fabulous pantomime, the all bigger and all better production of Aladdin written and directed by Peter Duncan. Keep your eye out too in the New Year for the comedy masterpiece Art, which comes to the theatre in March with an all star cast including Nigel Havers, Denis Lawson and Stephen Tompkinson.
Other highlights in The Everyman Theatre new season line up include Samuel Beckett’s iconic play Waiting for Godot, the powerful courtroom sensation The Verdict starring Ian Kelsey. There are also one off special productions of where you can celebrate The Magic of Motown, enjoy the best of Broadway and the West End in the musical experience that is Beyond the Barricade and join in the commemoration of the end of the First World War in an Armistice Day tribute, A Hundred Years On. Tickets are free for retired or active members of the Armed Forces.
As for me, the highlight of the new season line up will see me tapping my toes, singing out loud and dancing in the aisles to the breathtaking Thriller LIVE which kicks off at The Everyman Theatre on the 22nd of this month. Tickets are selling fast! Plus there’s more music yet to come in the definitive 30th anniversary tour Fame, which comes to The Everyman Theatre in February. Premium seat packages are available!
Another production I just can’t wait to see is the exuberant 50th anniversary production of the legendary rock musical Hair, winner of the 2018 WhatsOnStage Award. This is followed by the feel good musical of the year, Club Tropicana, which will see me taking a trip back to the electric 80’s of my youth though luckily this time without the padded shoulder pads, permed hair and shellsuits.
If you would like more information as to what else is coming up in the NEW season at The Everyman Theatre then check out the website and when you’re at the theatre, don’t forget to check out the brand new menu at The Café- Bar. You can also enjoy lunch or dinner in the comfort of Matchams restaurant or add a little sparkle to your visit in the Director’s Lounge!
Whatever you choose to see, I hope you have a fabulous time!
