Upcoming Shows & Events

Parade - 25th - 29th June 2024

Experience the power of hope in the face of adversity with this daring, innovative and bold Tony Award-winning musical, Parade.

In its 25th Anniversary this year, the themes of this show still resonate, as the backdrop of religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension takes you on a journey through the darkest corners of America’s history.

Immerse yourself in the genius of acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colourful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For A New World, The Last Five Years).

Parade is filled with soaring music and a heart-wrenching story, offering a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.

Allow Parade to ignite your emotions and inspire conversations about the resilience of the human spirit. If you’re looking for a powerful, moving theatrical experience, look no further than this unforgettable show.

School Of Rock - 1st - 3rd August 2024

School is now in session...

Based on the hilarious hit movie of the same name, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn (played in the movie by Jack Black), a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of strait-laced, straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band, much to the horror of their very strict parents. 

Can the students win the Battle of the Bands competition? Will they win their parents’ approval?  Will the other teachers rebel and get Dewey dismissed?  All will be revealed! 

The whole family can Rock along with a cast of 60 and a hugely talented, live student band, thrashing out tracks including Teacher’s Pet and Stick it to the Man, or empathise with Headteacher, Rosalie Mullins who ruefully reminisces about when she was fun and Stevie Nicks was her idol.
