A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHIEF EXECUTIVE The momentum that we gained from re-opening the theatre with our pantomime last Christmas has thankfully been maintained. Sales are still extremely buoyant, as you continue to show our artistic programme magnificent support across Harrogate’s four main performance spaces, for which we are all extremely grateful. The roof is now complete after a major investment from Harrogate Borough Council. It’s strange to get the Oxford Street skyline back after nearly a year, but fitting as we move in to summer.
The summer season is as varied as ever, especially the studio offer. We are thrilled to announce a celebration of pride and diversity in June, with a full week of shows all for £5! It’s great to welcome back the internationally renowned Northern Broadsides after a few years’ absence, with an exciting version of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. There’s also our usual range of comedy and music. Looking further ahead Harrogate Rep returns in the autumn after a gap of two years - three plays, three weeks and one cast, make sure you book early. Check out what’s inside, we promise there is something for everyone and we look forward to seeing you soon.
