Welcome to a scorcher of a Summer season! Sheila Hancock and Sandi Toksvig are back with The Portsmouth Festivities after their quite fabulous performances at our Fundraising Event in January. Our next fundraiser is hosted by Ken Russell – film maker extraordinaire. We will be screening The Boyfriend in 35 mm here where it was created in the 70s. Meet Twiggy, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies plus the great man himself and help us rebuild our splendid Victorian theatre. Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre return with The Comedy of Errors in The City Museum Gardens which promises to be as engagingly energetic as their wonderful Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The season is full to bursting with community shows including three great musicals – Beauty and the Beast and Bad Girls performed by talented groups, CCADS and Humdrum, and our own Youth Theatre is producing its first show, West Side Story – helped by Young Money. Booking is open for our Christmas Show so jump on board for our own Treasure Island adventure – there will be lots of aargh, Jim lads, piratical antics and gold coins to be fought over – look out for great offers for the earlybirds!
