When you talk about the New Theatre Royal, it’s mainly about the proposed plans to expand the theatre and combine it with the University Of Portsmouth.
But don’t turn away just yet, as the theatre is holding productions throughout autumn.
From September 21 until 24, CCADS (Corpus Christi Amateur Dramatic Society) will be putting on To Kill A Mockingbird, while The Last Night of the Proms will be held on October 8, in aid of The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.
Death Song is being performed by Newbury based amateur group, You Need Me, on October 11, but if opera is more your interest then Co-Opera Co are showing The Magic Flute on October 22, a story of princes and monsters set in a mythical land, and between December 9 and 10, Carmen.
The run of plays continues until the end of November with Lip Service’s Withering Looks, Scamp’s Friend Or Foe, Black Eyed Theatre’s Oh, What A Lovely War, and award winning company New International Encounter will be performing Tales From A Sea Journey.
The company will include it’s trademark use of multiple languages and storytelling throughout.
The theatre is also supporting local projects with the University Of Portsmouth’s Symphony Orchestra and Big Band performing on November 26, while Oddsocks will complete the last performance between December 16 and 17 with The Merry Wives Of Windsor.
