Richmond's famous 'Georgian' - the oldest theatre in Britain which is still running in its original form - is coming out of its post-Panto hibernation with a sparkling new season of drama, comedy, popular and classical music.
Visitors can look forward to hearing the great actor-director Barrie Rutter, celebrating the launch of a new Richmond-based chamber orchestra, relishing classic drama from Shakespeare and Ibsen and unbuttoned fun from Gilbert and Sullivan, the Budapest Cafe Orchestra, foot-tapping jazz and much, much more.
The season starts with a heart-warming comedy, These Things Do Happen, set in a North-Eastern farming community in the 1930s.
If you're just visiting Richmond, and can't come for a show, then come for a guided tour round the auditorium and into the hidden world of the back stage, the under-stage, the dressing rooms... You can almost smell the greasepaint!
Guided tours re-start on Monday 12 February. These Things Do Happen is on Friday 16th. More information, and tickets, are at georgiantheatreroyal.co.uk.
