We have an update from the lovely staff at the Manifest Theatre as they look towards their first live production since the Coronavirus Pandemic:

It’s been a very difficult time for every theatre around the country. We should have put our spring production on at The Manifest Theatre a year ago and have had to postpone it countless times since due to the ever-changing guidelines.

Despite these difficulties, the one thing that keeps us all together is the wonderful theatre. Theatre is pure escapism, a chance to be transported into a different world. To forget your everyday problems just for a couple of hours. We miss entertaining you just as much as you miss us but, as ever, our main priority is to make sure that you – the audience – and the cast and crew are all safe.

If everything goes according to plan, our first production will be The Thrill of Love in the autumn with dates to be confirmed, two years since we auditioned for the cast. If you are on social media, head over to our Facebook page where you can view our trailers.

In the meantime, keep an eye peeled for the new dates. We hope to finally open our doors to you in the autumn but will let you know if that changes. Thank you all for your continued support. We will come out of this stronger.
