Our Made In Northampton 2019 season continues this Autumn with the staging of two 20th century American classics, August Wilson‘s Two Trains Running and Arthur Miller‘s A View from the Bridge, followed by a 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.
We look forward to welcoming you to Royal & Derngate soon.
