Okay so I’ve finally had a chance to sit down and look through the programme for the autumn/winter season at the Sherman and I have a feeling I could be spending a lot of time there!
Really looking forward to seeing Torch Theatre’s Who’s afraid of Rachel Roberts next week after missing the tour last time and then missing it again in Edinburgh but hearing nothing but great things. Its fair to say Wales made quite an impact in showcasing it’s talent at the Fringe this year, and it was great to see so many familiar faces around the festival.
As a huge fan of children’s theatre, I can wait to see Boing! (a collaboration between Bristol Old Vic and Travelling Light) especially as the reactions from the kids themselves are often completely unpredictable and priceless!
Coming up in November, the Sherman welcomes back Headlong Theatre after their tour of the brilliant Medea last year, this time with their interpretation of 1984. Having read the novel, but never seeing a stage adaptation, I’m really intrigued to see what it’s like!
And then of course we have the Christmas shows: now, I love Christmas as much as the next festive person, but Christmas in a theatre is instantly ten times better. Beautifully decorated tree, queues of excited school children, hot chocolates and coffee’s all round, Christmas tunes sure to drive you slightly delirious and maybe a little bit of snow… you never know! This year our two shows are Corina Pavlova and the Lions Roar for the little-uns, and for the older ones, Sleeping Beauties (yes the plural was intentional!) both of which are set to be great fun, full of adventure and magic!
I’m sure you will either find me in the auditorium or behind the bar, hopefully see you there!
