Exciting new theatre season at Braintree

August 8, 2013


BRAINTREE Arts Theatre has launched its new season of shows promised to be the most diverse and ambitious season yet.

Kick starting the line-up on September 14 is The Great Ormond Street Hospital charity night with a celebration of musical theatre songs and dances from well-known West End shows by local performers, with all proceeds going to the charity.

Kelly McGibney, theatre manager, said: We're really excited to be offering Essex high quality performances and national acts for a reasonable price. It's our most diverse and ambitious season yet.

The theatre is also going to host monthly funhouse comedy nights with three for two on ticket prices. A whole range of experienced comedians will be performing, such as Ben Norris, Ian Stone and the duo Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue.

For a fun, girly night out the theatre recommends the brand-new spectacular A Night of Dirty Dancing - the ultimate tribute show featuring all the hits from the famous dance movie Dirty Dancing, on November 22 for only Pounds 18 an adult.

There is also a variety of afternoon children's shows to keep the little ones occupied during the October half term such as The Three Billy Pigs, Treasure Island, Midnight with Mister James and Grimm Fairy Tales, where families can receive a discounted ticket price for four too. The theatre is also celebrating the seasonal periods, with special Halloween spectaculars throughout October such as Dracula set in 1897 based on Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker.

As well as The Ghost Ship, a thrilling new play, based on a haunting spooky sea story, and 'Jack the Ripper - A 21st Century Investigation' which returns to the story of mysterious unidentified killer known as Jack The Ripper, Trevor Marriott has been re- investigating these crimes and new evidence has been found.

The new season is fully packed with a whole host of different productions from comedians, children's acts, magicians, horror plays and medieval spectacular's - it really has something for everyone, and all on Essex's door step. Rather than paying London prices, as well as train fares and travel time, you can enjoy a show at affordable prices and just park outside for free, said Kelly.

Braintree Arts Theatre has also launched its new productions to begin in September, and is now running an Early Bird Booking Special for guests to enjoy 15 per cent off tickets purchased before September 2.
