Director's Circle

Following the success of our Cinderella (2023) and Party Games! (2024) Director’s Circles, we are excited to announce the next opportunity to get closer to our work alongside our forthcoming production, Robin Hood

The Director’s Circle is a truly immersive Page-to-Stage experience, giving you the chance to see our productions from the very start, with a unique level of access to theatre, creative team and cast.

Meet the Director, Joanna Read, and hear about her creative processes, watch the Dress and Technical rehearsals, explore the magical world of pantomime with a backstage tour during the production run and be the guests of honour at Supporters Night with great seats and an after-show party with the stars of the show!


This is unlike any other supporters’ scheme on offer at the theatre.  

the post-show drinks with the cast was the perfect way to end a wonderful experience which really did what we hoped, allowed us to visit the magic of theatre in a way we had only imagined previously, we will definitely do this again

Directors Circle Supporter feedback - December 2023

Robin Hood will undoubtedly be a fantastic show as we welcome back Lucy Benjamin and Matt Pinches from Cinderella, along with Arnaud regular Peter Gordon as the Dame. With more cast announcements to come, this is set to be a very special Christmas!

The opportunity to get closer to the action is a must for anyone with a true interest in theatrical process, so why not join us for a peek over the fourth wall? It could also make an incredible gift for a theatre-going loved one. In addition, Director’s Circle Supporters are welcome to bring a guest to all events.

Access to the scheme is limited making this exclusive experience one you will never forget.

The experience is priced at £1,000 which includes a donation to the work the theatre is doing with vulnerable groups in the community. The option to pay in five equal monthly instalments is available, please email to find out more.
