The Curious Dog

The National Theatre returns with two shows, One Man, Two Guvnors, starring Shaun Williamson, Emma Barton and Jasmyn Banks, on February 24 – 28, and the award-winning The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time.

As part of the theatre’s creative learning initiatives, workshops are being held for students for both shows, including a page to stage session.

Music lovers of all genres can expect performances from Sam Bailey, Katherine Jenkins, Paul Carrack, Blue, Michael Ball, Simple Minds and The Moody Blues.

For families there are the Russian Ice Stars with their lavish Snow White On Ice.

Area theatre manager, Elizabeth Adlington, said: “I am delighted to announce such a busy upcoming season for the New Theatre.

“There is a fantastic variety of shows on offer, whether you are looking for a West End musical, big names from the worlds of music and comedy, international ballet or something for the little ones.

“I am particularly looking forward to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which has been wowing audiences in London, and also to welcoming the National Theatre back to Oxford.
