A Message from the Chairman
Another theatre season, another smorgasboard of diverse dynamic drama….
For 2017-2018 we offer: a farce from Neil Simon and pure comedy from Ben Elton, a classic thriller from Arnold Ridley, two inspiring and thought provoking dramas and of course the Bard’s most popular and funniest play, also a pair of one act gems: one of which features the stars of tomorrow from our partners, the Parsnips Youth Theatre. And our Studio Theatre will showcase intimate performances in different genres. Details are still under wraps so watch out for announcements.
Tickets usually sell very quickly and I urge you to book early. They go on sale four weeks before each performance and if you are on our e-mailing list we will warn you when that happens. For the Studio, of course, season tickets do not apply, as there are only ever 50 tickets for each performance, so you need to be especially quick!
There will also be the usual range of live broadcasts of plays, opera and ballet on the big screen, from world class venues, courtesy of Octagon Films. Parsnips Youth Theatre will showcase their hilarious home-brew productions. And we expect once again to welcome productions from our favourite travelling theatre companies, as well as carefully selected musical groups.
For our own members, who are entirely responsible for all that we do, this year we are reviving our programme of members’ events, combining social fun with theatre-based interest. Membership subscriptions are modest and everyone with an interest in drama or just looking for an engaging hobby is welcome to join. Why not have a look at our ‘Getting Involved’ page and get in touch.
I look forward to welcoming you to our little theatre.
George Normand, Chairman MHDS
