Hello and welcome to the summer edition of the Rotherham Theatres newsletter.

While many of you have been jetting off to faraway shores, or simply enjoying the glorious weather at home, the Rotherham Theatres team have been hard at work putting together a show-stopping programme for the upcoming season…

 

The weather may be finally heating up, but, Rotherham Theatres are looking towards the fun of the festive period by signing a ‘huge’ name for this year’s panto.

Mark Labbett, better known as “The Beast” on ITV game show The Chase, has been snapped up to star as the evil Abanazar in this year’s production, Aladdin!

VOLUNTEERING AT THE CIVIC
There are many benefits to becoming a volunteer. It’s a great way to meet people and socialise, with many of our volunteers considering it as a great night out. Volunteers also greatly contribute to keeping the theatre open, meaning this fantastic local amenity will be around for years to come. 

Could you volunteer at the Civic? If you would like to be part of our team please contact Julie Ogden on 01709 823641 or email julie.ogden@rotherham.gov.uk.
PRE-THEATRE DINING AT THE WHARNCLIFFE
After a hugely successful first season, we are once again partnering with Rotherham College’s training restaurant, The Wharncliffe, to bring you a fantastic pre-theatre dining offer. So why not make a night of it and start your evening with a delicious meal with friends?

Enjoy a pre-theatre 2 course meal at The Wharncliffe Restaurant for only £9.95 per person!
UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT
Name: Angela Gardner
Job: Box Office Logistics Officer

What I do: My role involves working on box office at both the Visitor Centre and Civic Theatre, meeting and greeting customers and helping them with enquiries and bookings. I also act as Duty Manager at the theatre where occasionally I have the privilege of shaking hands with the odd celebrity.

What I enjoy: I am proud to be part of such a dedicated team of professionals who each play a part in bringing exciting performances to our customers. I take great satisfaction in receiving audience feedback after live shows, knowing I have contributed to their enjoyment. There is such a wide variety of entertainment at the theatre that there is never a dull moment, and I love the buzz.

What I'm watching this season: Last time Andrew Newton graced our stage with his fantastically funny entertaining performance I was on duty, but this time around, his December show is definitely a date in my diary. 
COMING SOON - LDN Wrestling
The stars of LDN Wrestling are coming to Rotherham for a night of action-packed drama this winter! Come along and experience the rip-roaring action up close and personal. 
WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU
