Our Seasonal Brochure autumn 2021
We are delighted to be welcoming back audiences to The Old Rep Theatre after such a long time.
We have a packed Autumn/Winter schedule featuring a number of re-scheduled performances and some brand-new shows. We have all missed the theatre as there really is nothing like experiencing the magic of live entertainment with an audience around you. It’s ability to lift and entertain people even in times of difficulty is unparalleled.
This season we are delighted to announce that our Christmas spectacular this year is Alice in Wonderland. This adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale follows the story of Alice, a young, curious girl who follows a white rabbit down a rabbit hole and into Wonderland. There, she encounters some of the strangest and most peculiar creatures, including the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter. With songs old and new, and a brand-new script with a talented cast of 25 performers Alice in Wonderland is set to be a spectacular experience that we hope will be enjoyed. Come on an adventure this Christmas and remember don’t be late for this very important date!
We have a number of performances presented by Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA) including two Musical showcases and two gritty dramas, Antigone and Boudica. We also welcome BOA Stage and Screen Production students to our theatre to learn new skills backstage and front of house in the oldest repertory theatre in the country.
Other highlights this season include comedy from Jenny Eclair, Simon Brodkin, Mark Steel and Iain Stirling and the festive favourite A Christmas Carol.
