What an exciting season we have coming up for you Uppingham Theatre!
We kick of the new season by welcoming The Houndogs as part of our new ‘Studio Gig’ element to our programme. The event takes place in the studio so there is plenty of room for dancing and the bar will be open for the whole evening, should you wish to rest your weary dancing feet! We were lucky enough to have Funk Soul Brother playing as a Studio Gig last season. We sold out and a fantastic evening was had by all.
We love to bring you excellent comedy and we’ve organised two stand-up events this season. We have Best of the Fest Part 1 and Part 2! The headline act for Part 1 is Jarlath Regan and for Part 2 is Ed Gamble. They are joined by a whole host of other comedians and they will both be fabulous nights out, on your door step!
Two fantastic pieces of drama that we are lucky enough to have are Smooth Faced Gentleman, the all-female Shakespeare theatre company, with their adaptation of Othello , and we have Sea Bright Productions with their heart-warming adaptation of a much-loved classic It’s a Wonderful Life.
Our children’s calendar carries on this season with a couple of wonderful shows. We are delighted to present The Scarecrows Wedding and I Believe in Unicorns. We will be inviting local primary schools to the matinee events but parents are welcome to bring along their children to the 4pm shows absolutely free of charge. This is all part of our work with the Windmill House Trust who pay for these shows to bring theatre to all children in our County. We are incredibly lucky to have such a fantastic offering so please do make use of it and come along and see us.
We have the music of Frank Sinatra and musical improv comedy from the amazing Baby Wants Candy on the programme as well.
The final point of note is a gentleman called Colin Cloud. Colin is a Forensic Mind Reader. I am sure that the evening will be amazing as Colin impresses us with his fabulous mind reading skills.
