A Message from our Chairman
I am pleased to unveil Harborough Theatre’s exciting new programme for the 2016-2017 season.
On stage we have a wonderful mix of favourite authors – Agatha Christie, Alan Ayckbourn, John Godber and Oscar Wilde. There is Brian Clark’s Whose Life Is It Anyway, voted one of the top ten plays of the 20th century. And two award winning new plays: Pink Mist which we believe will be an amateur world premier when it appears on our stage in November, after finishing a season at the Bristol Old Vic; and Two Sisters, paired with Parsnips Youth Theatre’s production of a thought provoking play by local author, the late David Campton, in our now customary double bill in February.
But that’s not all: we have an inaugural season of three very different theatrical events in the new lounge studio commencing with our Homage to the Bard marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
And watch out for announcements of live broadcasts of plays, opera and ballet on the big screen from world class venues, courtesy of Octagon Films, and eighties Musical extravaganza from the Market Harborough Musical Theatre, Parsnips Youth Theatre’s own fun-filled shows, and a range of different visiting productions throughout the season. We can truly say there is something for everyone this coming season.
I look forward to welcoming you to the theatre, and if you think you might like to get involved in helping to run this gem of a regional theatre, on or off stage, why not have a look at our ‘getting involved’ page and get in touch. Like many of our volunteers you could take the first step in fulfilling your dream.
George Normand, Chairman MHDS
