Live Shows Return To Eastbourne’s Devonshire Park Theatre
The wait is finally over! Audiences are being welcomed back to Eastbourne’s beloved grand dame of all Eastbourne Theatres, the beautiful Grade II listed Devonshire Park Theatre from this October.
The range of work presented at the theatre, affectionately dubbed ‘the playhouse in the park’, includes major touring productions, smaller works from local producers and in-house pantomime, plays and musicals and opens this autumn with a season that promises a selection of perfect diversions from drama to chilling ghost stories.
The curtain rose with Original Theatre Company’s production of The Hound of the Baskervilles in October. A hit in the West End, this ingenious adaptation from Lotte Wakeman combined an exhilarating collision of farce, theatrical invention, and wonderfully comic performances to offer a brand-new twist on the greatest Sir Arthur Conan Doyle detective story of all time.
A great season of drama follows with Adrian Lukis in Being Mr. Wickham, 4th to 6th November; Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffier’s The Smeds and The Smoos, 15th to 17th November, an interplanetary adventure for everyone aged 3 and up, and eerie horror Sleepy Hollow, 23rd to 27th November, with Wendi Peters and Bill Ward, where residents spin tall tales of legends and unsightly entities, but who can tell truth from nightmare?
The highly anticipated Eastbourne Theatre’s Devonshire Park legendary pantomime completes the season and will be bigger, better and more bonkers than ever! This year Sleeping Beauty will truly be a dream of a pantomime for all the family at Christmas, from 10th December to 9th January 2022, a spectacular show full of music, laughter, amazing special effects.
