Through the Autumn to Christmas and beyond, we are bringing another wide-ranging programme of drama, music, comedy, dance and family entertainment to Northampton.
Our Made in Northampton season continues with world premiere stage adaptations of The Lovely Bones and Touching the Void for the Autumn, and Our Lady of Kibeho newly announced for the new year. Visiting drama includes Rebus: Long Shadows and Rain Man, with The Girl on the Train coming in Spring. The sensational musical Kinky Boots starts its national tour here in Northampton in September, with Doctor Dolittle and Rock of Ages to look forward to in 2019.
The top class comedy line-up features gigs by Dylan Moran, Sarah Millican, Chris Ramsey and Sara Pascoe. Richard Alston Dance Company returns with the best of contemporary dance, while audiences can book ahead now for performances early next year by The Russian State Ballet of Siberia. The season includes music from a host of top artists with concerts from Rick Wakeman, Echo and the Bunnymen and Jools Holland.
Our Orchestral Season continues with the annual Malcolm Arnold Festival and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Symphonic Rock concert. Family entertainment includes Peppa Pig’s Adventure and The Snail and the Whale. For Christmas, this year’s spectacular Derngate pantomime is Peter Pan with a star cast including Darren Day and dance group Flawless, with The Worst Witch casting a magical spell over the Royal and The Everywhere Bear for Under 7s in the Underground Studio.
