Our Made In Northampton 2019 season continues this Autumn when the brand new musical comedy The Season.
Looking ahead to Christmas, Astrid Lindgren’s well-loved children’s book Pippi Longstocking is brought to life on the Royal stage in an epic new musical adventure. Nine-year-old Pippi is strong, brave and fearless, and when she comes to live in her new home with her monkey and horse but no parents and no rules, she brings mischief, chaos and confusion. In the Underground Studio, the captivating story by best-selling author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Charlotte Voake, The Further Adventures Of The Owl And The Pussy-cat, is brought to life with stunning puppetry and beautiful original music.
After the festive period our season returns with Louis Sachar‘s off-beat comedy adventure Holes, and Alistair Beaton‘s adaptation of Hans Fallada’s gripping war-time drama Alone In Berlin. In March The Wardrobe Ensemble bring The Last Of The Pelican Daughters back to Northampton following a critically an acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe run over the summer. The Spring programme concludes with The Strange Tale Of Charlie Chaplin And Stan Laurel – a hilarious and deeply moving homage to two men who changed the world of comedy forever.
The summer season will feature Emile Bronté‘s Wuthering Heights, co-produced with China Plate, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Inspector Sands in association with Oxford Playhouse. Channelling Emily Brontë’s piercing wit and fierce emotion, Inspector Sands will bring their characteristic humour, passion and pathos to the infamous love story of Heathcliff and Catherine.
We look forward to welcoming you to Royal & Derngate soon.
