Stars of Stage and Screen coming to The Belgrade Theatre
With the Summer in full swing and the promise of a new season just around the corner, Belgrade Theatre is looking ahead to a jam-packed programme featuring an exciting mix of engaging and entertaining live experiences all under one roof.
Fans of theatrical suspense can look forward to a brand new production of Emelyn Williams’ psychological thriller Night Must Fall running on the Main Stage from Wed 28 Sept – Sat 1 Oct and starring BAFTA award-winning actress Gwen Taylor as Mrs Bramson.
If it’s a musical that takes your fancy, the multi award-winning West End show Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is a must-see for anyone looking for a fun, feel-good night of rock ‘n’ roll nostalgia arriving from Wed 12 – Sat 15 Oct. Or, if 1950s sci-fi is more your thing, cult musical Little Shop Of Horrors comes jam-packed with hilarious comedy and kooky charm as Audrey 2 takes to the stage once more from Wed 26 – Sat 29 Oct. Starring X Factor’s Rhydian Roberts as dentist Orin Scrivello, be sure to snap up your tickets while they last!
For lovers of classic drama, Alan Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking is a delightfully witty and beautifully crafted comedy of mistaken identity and chaotic courtship running on the Main Stage from Mon 31 Oct – Sat 5 Nov. This brand-new production brings together two of Britain’s favourite household names, Robert Powell, star of The Detectives and Jesus of Nazareth and Liza Goddard, best known for her roles in Life of Riley, Doctor Who and Bergerac.
For a political satire with added bite, Dead Sheep tells the true story of how Mrs Thatcher, once the most powerful woman in the world, was brought down by Geoffrey Howe, her one time friend and political soul mate. Running on the Main Stage from Wed 19 – Sat 22 Oct, this razorsharp comedy of heartbreak, betrayal and good old-fashioned backbiting stars original Spitting Image voice-artist, Steve Nallon as Margaret Thatcher and Graham Seed as Ian Gow, best known for playing Nigel Pargetter in the long-running Radio Four drama, The Archers.
And of course, it’s never too soon to start planning for Christmas with three exciting new shows guaranteed to top up your festive spirit levels this yuletide. Whether it’s a traditional family panto with Dick Whittington (Wed 23 Nov – Sat 7 Jan), a sprinkling of festive silliness in alternative Xmas thriller, Private Dick Whittington (Sat 3 – Sat 31 Dec) or a first introduction to theatre with Santa’s Polka Dot Pirate (Thurs 8 – Sat 24 Dec), there’s a seasonal show to satisfy every age this Christmas!
