The Place is like a second home to me. I currently work in marketing this fantastic, quirky backstreet theatre where we host a variety of shows, both local and professional. Since opening in 2003 we have gained a reputation for presenting high quality local theatre as well as a diverse and exciting range of touring professional actors and musicians. I am lucky enough to have performed in this space many times with the Swan Theatre Company and now teach with the resident Act One Theatre School.
I love seeing the look on someone’s face when they discover our venue for the first time and remark on how friendly and inviting the space is. We hope to welcome many people through our doors this autumn as we present an extremely exciting line up with something for everyone.
It is so hard to pick shows from the line- up but I must say I am very excited about The Pantaloons performing ‘As You Like it’ and also the groundbreaking Strictly Arts production of ‘Freeman’ which is currently selling out to rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Plus, of course, there is the amazing protest singer Grace Petrie, a host of family shows… also I am performing in ‘The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance’ with the Swan Theatre Company in September…. I could go on!
If you would like a taster, then come along to our FREE launch evening on Friday 7th September at 7.30pm when we will introduce the season, sample some of the mouth-watering Spaghetti John’s gelato that we offer and also have FREE wine tasting with the Blue Glass Wine merchants.
We want to see you.
We really do.
Our Place is Your Place.
