Next Stage will be celebrating its Silver Anniversary on Saturday 18th May 2019, and we invite you all to celebrate with us. We have an exciting Birthday week of treats in store for you:

  1. Here We Go Again

In the week leading up to the official birthday, come along and enjoy our 25th Cabaret-style show: Here We Go Again. Compiled by Artistic Director, Ann Ellison, this celebratory evening showcases extracts from nine of Next Stage's favourite past productions, featuring the original cast members. With a glass of bubbly (or a non-alcoholic option) to start the evening, plus a full-colour commemorative programme to accompany the performances, Here We Go Again is sure to be a night to remember with stand-out performances, laughs and quality acts and actors. Do come along and join Next Stage as the company takes a trip down memory lane for this extra special show.

Tickets £15 - Available HERE

2. Next Stage Theatre Company's Silver Anniversary Book

In honour of everything the company has achieved in the last 25 years, we have put together a 50 page anniversary book looking back at the near-200 productions that the company has staged since 1994. It includes a Foreword written by the company’s prestigious Patron Sir Alan Ayckbourn and congratulatory messages from Sir David Hare, Dame Harriet Walter and Robert Lindsay. Celebrating all of Next Stage's main theatre productions in full-colour, with photos and reminiscences, this book will be available from our birthday week onwards at a cost of just £15.
