The Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond is now selling tickets for the Autumn 2012 season. The season, which runs from 1st September 2012 to 5th January 2013, is full of music, new drama and local talent, culminating in its third, in-house, professional pantomime Babes in the Wood.
The popular family matinee continues this Autumn - on the second Saturday of each month shows which are produced with children and young people in mind will take centre stage at the Georgian. The family season starts on Saturday 13th October with Scarecrow, a show which explores the beauty of friendships.
Music features heavily in the Autumn season; in September the theatre hosts the annual Richmond Jazz Festival which features Roller Trio, The Atlantic Soul Messengers and Richmond Jam.
Spokesperson for the theatre, Sarah Comerford, said: "We are delighted to welcome back Fourum, a locally based folk band who combine tales of the Dales with great music. We are also excited to welcome two giants of the Folk scene to the Georgian this Autumn with the Radio 2 Folk Musician of the year Andy Cutting and ‘National Treasure’ Ralph McTell."
A host of quality dramas are also scheduled for this season, Icarus Theatre Collective return to the Georgian with Romeo and Juliet, one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays. The theatre is also included in the premiere tour for Happy Jack, a brand new play written and directed by the brilliant John Godber. North Country Theatre return with The Lighthouse on Shivering Sands and Hull Truck Theatre Company with their adaptation of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
Miss Comerford continued: "Autumn is set to be an entertaining and varied season at the Georgian, so all that needs to be decided now is where will you let your seat take you?"
