WELCOME TO

THE FISHER THEATRE As I write on the cusp of another programme launch, with the clocks going forward, I’m looking ahead to a balmy summer with some great entertainment in store. We have the Storyteller of the Year gracing our cellar in May, and a great summer vibe being created by Soul of Santana at the end of the month. In June we have a number of summery Shakespeare offerings performed by children from the Fisher Youth Theatre Group, to a great local theatre group RoughCast, and finally from a troupe of bicycling pro-performers called The Handlebards. A great time to refresh your memories of A Midsummer Night’s Dream,The Tempest, As you Like it and Twelfth Night, all wonderfully comic, magical and scented with the bloom of summer. I’m particularly excited by Melancholy from wonderful puppet company Certain Dark Things to offer something that edges towards the more serious amongst the summer delights we’ve planned, but which promises to be quite magical and moving. July brings us the King, don’t miss this wonderful sell-out Elvis, and later some lazy jazz from world class saxophonist and singer, Renato D’Aiello & Deelee Dube (Winner of Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition 2016). August is quieter, to allow you all to holiday and enjoy the outdoors of course, but still has a good offering of music from Cantaria, a few bands and films to keep you topped up with culture when you feel you need it. We look forward to seeing you and sharing the enjoyment.

Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
