A great way to start the new year with a variety of fantastic shows coming up this season. Come along and enjoy theatre as your new year’s resolution!
The highlight of the season in The Main House will be the week long run of The Original Theatre Company’s production of The Importance of Being Earnest (5-10 Feb) in February. The UK tour will star Gwen Taylor as Lady Bracknell and Susan Penhaligon as Miss Prism in the Oscar Wilde classic.
The Studio Theatre will also play host to a selection of drama productions this season including Clown in The Moon (Fri 2 Feb), a dramatic portrait of Dylan Thomas and Mata Hari (Wed 28 Mar), the story of the most notorious female spy in history.
A host of famous faces will also be gracing the stage at The Courtyard in 2018. Griff Rhys Jones (Thu 29 Mar) appears in March sharing stories, anecdotes, reminiscences and ‘outright lies’ whilst historian Lucy Worsley (Tue 17 April) visits Hereford to accompany the launch of her new biography of Jane Austen. Fresh from the television studio and offering VIP packages for fans to meet and greet will be Strictly Come Dancing favourite Giovanni Pernice (Mon 16 April) and, in January, MasterChef presenter Gregg Wallace (Sun 20 Jan) will share his culinary expertise and behind the scenes tales.
For families this season there is also lots on offer including a lively and tuneful rendition by the London Mozart Players of Little Red Riding Hood (Fri 13 April). Sarah and Duck (Sun 15 April) of the BAFTA award-winning CBeebies show will also visit The Courtyard during the Easter holidays.
