Aylesbury Waterside Theatre has my business this spring with the announcement of a season stuffed with award-winning musicals, foot-stomping live music shows, spine-tingling drama and an exciting programme of family-friendly theatre productions.
There’s the classic musical Anything Goes, thought-provoking drama with the National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and one of the greatest plays of the last century, Arcadia by Tom Stoppard.
Willy Russell’s captivating and moving musical Blood Brothers returns to prove why it’s still one of the most-loved musical productions, and, for Python fans, the multi-award-winning Spamalot gallops on to the stage.
Oh What A Lovely War sees former Coronation Street stars Wendi Peter and Ian Reddington lead from the front in the incredibly powerful WWI musical.
Multiple Tony Award winner Avenue Q will be right up your street – but be warned that these puppets are strictly for adults!
The theatre has a vibrant programme of one-night shows that offer everything from the country’s top comics to music and dance.
The ever-popular musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is to return. There is the much-loved Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat, to the nation’s favourite bear, Sooty and The Fantastical Story Factory, where young audience members decide the story.
And make sure you support the must-see Bravo 22 Company Buckinghamshire Legacy Project; a piece of thought-provoking theatre produced by ex-military wounded, injured and sick service personnel.
