Theatre unveils its spring 2017 season
From Shakespeare to Ipswich Town stars, Frankenstein to stand up and ballet to Glenn Miller, Theatre Royal’s Spring 2017 season covers all kinds of entertainment.
Tickets go on sale at 6pm on Friday for a programme that combines music, drama, comedy, dance and celebrity, sometimes in the same show at the Bury St Edmunds theatre.
The theatre’s own production of Northanger Abbey opens on February 2, adapted from Jane Austen’s novel by Tim Luscombe and directed by Karen Simpson. It then tours through 2017, Austen’s 200th anniversary year.
There’s also a comedy poke at Austen with Mr Darcy Loses the Plot in March.
March also sees Blackeyed Theatre perform Frankenstein and in April Shakespeare’s As You Like it is preformed by LAMDA.
Comedy comes in the forms of Miles Jupp and Richard Herring in February and Susan Calman in June.
The Ballet Theatre UK returns in March with Giselle and Ballet Cymru with the Light Princess in May, which the theatre says is for all the family.
Celebrety events include ex-Goody Tim Brooke-Taylor on his career and Ispwich Town Football Club Legends with Bryan Hamilton, David Johnson and Eric Gates.
