We have chosen a great name for what we are sure will be a great show to celebrate the fact that we now own the Turret. An evening showcasing scenes from productions that have been popular over the years. Rehearsals are gathering momentum and we can't wait to take to the stage
We hope everyone is enjoying 'Mother Goose'!
For those who bought tickets for Saturday Evening we've just spotted that the goblins have meddled with the timing printed on tickets sent to the Sweetie Shop!
The performance times on Saturday are 2PM and 6:30PM not 7PM as stated on some tickets.
Happy New Year to all our members, patrons and supporters! It has been a busy 2016 and we have been fortunate to have your support.
2017 is sure to get off to a bang with our Pantomime - Mother Goose - in January. Tickets are still available for some performances at the Box Office.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of 'The Amorous Ambassador' who played to full houses for the entire run and the laughter coming from the theatre was a good indicator that they were enjoying themselves! We even had someone asking if there were tickets available so she could see it again...
The carefully choreographed use of the many, many doors clearly needed much practice and suitable reinforcement by the stage crew to ensure they stayed on their hinges!

Due to phenomenal early demand we were able to add an extra matinee performance to the show week for 'Abigail's Party'. All of the performances received positive feedback from the sell out audiences and it was great to be able to bring the '70s to life in the Turret - complete with bright orange furniture!
With Robert Benison at the helm in his first full length production as producer audiences were treated to a great night out full of laughs and excitement. Well done to everyone involved!
For those who weren't able to experience it in person the photos from the production will be online soon.
