This season is quite possibly the most varied programme of events ever presented at the Theatre Royal. We have everything from Donal Skehan, kitchen hero to world renowned cameraman, Doug Allan and a wide selection of entertainment in dance, music and drama from here to Christmas and beyond.
Among the more popular highlights is sure to be the South East Theatre Group The Phantom of the Opera the next in a long line of hits from this popular local company. We are pleased to present the Fishamble productions of Silent and Forgotten on successive nights showcasing the amazing talent of Pat Kinevane in two one man shows that have been acclaimed from New York to Edinburgh.
We continue our own production activity with a national tour of our successful 2011 production, The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson, The Macbeth Review which will be reprised for senior cycle students in January here and at theatres throughout the region. And we have begun preparations for the premiere of The Invader, a new opera by Eric Sweeney which will be part of the 2014 civic celebrations marking the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the city of Waterford.
In that time honoured phrase, there is something for everybody in our Autumn/Winter 2013 programme so do make a visit to the theatre part of your plans in the coming months.
Some of these include a welcome return to Waterford of Alone It Stands, Red Kettle’s new play, Brendan Grace, The Temptations,and The Phantom of The Opera to name but a few.
