Saturday 24th July: HMS Pinafore, Illyria
Award-winning outdoor theatre company Illyria will bring their fabulous production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore to Cromer. This wonderful comic opera gets the complete Illyria treatment, faithfully performed with the full score by a reduced cast on a beautiful nautical set.
Sunday 8th August: The Scarlet Pimpernel, Quill and Inkling
Aa cast of three from Quill and Inkling with a not very serious take on the famous story of a bold mysterious Englishman sneaking out French aristocrats from France during the revolution. French agent Chauvelin asks his old friend, Marguerite, to help him discover the Pimpernel’s identity, but it all gets very serious when her husband, Sir Percy Blakeney, well known idiot, gets involved.
Sunday 22nd August: Alice in Wonderland, Boxtree
Follow Boxtree Productions down the rabbit hole into a strange world of caterpillars, cards and tea parties. Join Alice as she tries to navigate this curious world of curiouser creatures but don’t lose your head! We promise you a wonderful experience of original toe-tapping songs, colourful characters, costumes and hilarious comedy.
Sunday 5 September: Robin Hood, The Three Inch Fools
This summer, a hapless troupe of actors hit the road with a calamitous new production of Robin Hood. Prepare for a riotous summer adventure fit for all the family as The Fools battle to tell their own version of the
legendary tale at some of the most beautiful and historic landmarks in the UK. Expect the full Three Inch Fools treatment – an afternoon packed with wildly-inventive story-telling, fast-paced drama, a host of musical instruments and many a quick costume change along the way!
