Spring Season at Sheringham Little Theatre

Let the sparkling lights at Sheringham’s Little Theatre help shine the way through the Winter gloom and lead you into a scintillating Spring.  

With a superb selection of over two dozen exciting events already booked before the end of May, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.  And keep your eye on the website www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com  for more events and mainstream cinema being added.

Some productions come with added anticipation, having been paused by the pandemic.  Refreshed regulars are returning with sprightly fresh shows eagerly waiting in the wings.  

To showcase the best of up-and-coming local talent, the energetic Youth Theatre will finally perform the beautifully crafted musical Guys and Dolls.  It’s on for three nights at Easter including Good Friday so make sure of booking your tickets early. 

From 31 March to 2 April, the Little Theatre Players bring to life a classic comedy by J B Priestley.  When We Are Married is all about three couples celebrating their silver wedding anniversaries, having been married on the same day in the same chapel.  Or so they believe!

More local performers well worth your support are the century-old Cromer and Sheringham Operatic and Dramatic Society.  They bring their next show to the Sheringham stage from 9 to 12 February, with a Saturday matinee too.  Alan Bennett’s eccentric Miss Shepherd is The Lady in the Van.

Also long established is theatre group Stage Direct whose new drama is one more in a long line of highly successful productions.  They tread the boards with Miss Marble Takes a Break from 20 to 22 January.  

Jazz fans will be delighted to see the return of Jazz at The Hub.  There are no fewer than five live sessions on the last Sunday of the month launching in January.  Having suffered the bitter disappointment of being the first band to be cancelled at the start of the pandemic, the Paul Hill Quartet now hold the privileged position of performing the first in this series of sets.  Visit www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com to see the list of much-loved musicians through to the end of May.

Known to many as a finalist on The Voice UK when she reduced Sir Tom Jones to tears, veteran folk and blues singer-songwriter Sally Barker takes over the Little Theatre stage for an evening of music from Joni Mitchell and Sandy Dennis.  12 March is the date to note for this folk-filled evening courtesy of local promoters Deckchair Productions.

More music of a different kind entirely on 4 March is Samia Malik showcasing her thrilling new solo show Songs to Heal and Empower.  At Sheringham to celebrate International Women’s Day on the following Tuesday, Samia’s bilingual work has the support of the Arts Council.     

The Little Theatre is pleased to be hosting the final performance on 5 March of this third regional tour for The Canada Boys.  Another Rob John drama from well-respected fEAST Theatre, it is set in 1912 at the Norwich mustard factory of J & J Colman.  Ambition, love, duty and family feature in this local story. 

Comedy in a cake shop on 19 March comes with a touring production of the Tobias Nicholls’ play The Last Crumb.  

Audience participation is an essential element of the fund-raising show on 26 March by The Intellectual Hooligans from Norwich who base their entertainment around the TV programme Whose Line is it Anyway?  

A one-act dark comedy thriller, My Other Half, premiered at the 2021 Holt Festival and now enjoys an exclusive preview on 22 March at Sheringham before an extensive East Anglian Tour throughout April.  Written by the Little Theatre’s very own Christopher Sainton-Clark.

An amazing mix of fun for little people will be the magic and mayhem of Captain Calamity.  Sheringham gives you three different shows to experience his wacky world of the Lollipop Lighthouse in Chocolate Button Bay!  Performances in February, March and April.  Book for one or all three!  

Self-evident from this programme is how Sheringham Little Theatre manifests its continuous support for local actors and crew by providing a professional platform for their talent.  But the venue also brings you the very best of world-class performances from London and beyond via the modern technology of satellite.

Starting on 15 January the screenings get under way with Felicity Kendal and Gary Wilmot in Anything Goes.  

Complete with a cast of 40, the new award-winning play from Tom Stoppard Leopoldstadt can be viewed from a West End stage on 27 January.  

A very special screening on St Valentine’s Day from the Royal Opera House is the modern ballet classic Romeo and Juliet.  

The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman is brought to the stage of London’s Bridge Theatre by director Nicholas Hytner on 17 February.  

Verdi’s Rigoletto from the Royal Opera House is being screened on 10 March.  Verdi is the composer again for the next Royal Opera House screening of La Traviata on 13 April.  By contrast, sandwiched in between those two operatic occasions is Hex, which is the new musical retelling of Sleeping Beauty from National Theatre on 17 March. 

The final presentation on the silver screen in this Spring season is the breathtakingly beautiful ballet Swan Lake from the Royal Opera House with the sublime score from Tchaikovsky.

There’s something for everyone in the Spring Season at Sheringham!

  • Sheringham / Cromer cliff-top path

    On a clear winter day a walk along the cliff tops offers an impressive 360⁰ view over both land and sea.

    Keep an eye out for kestrels on the wing and listen for cormorants as you follow the rolling coast path, meandering over close-cropped grass and scrubby thickets. During autumn these areas offer a prime location for foraging Sea Buckthorn.

    Bristly bushes with inch long spines may appear intimidating at first, but the tightly clustered berries, amber in colour, offer up a bounty to those who are willing to commit a bit of time and effort. Take along a sturdy tub and a pair of gloves and your cliff top walk will provide an abundance of culinary potential.

     

  • News from Sheringham Little Theatre

    The lights are burning bright again at Sheringham’s stage and screen.  With the Autumn programme well underway, the Little Theatre has an amazing array of attractions to look forward to. 

    Our Panto will celebrate the end of this very long year with no less than twenty afternoon performances between 21st and 31st December when you can join Jack on his adventures up the Beanstalk.  Whatever else will be in short supply this Christmas, it won’t be fun and laughter in the Little Theatre’s show!  But with social distancing still in place in the auditorium there will be big gaps in the seats, so it’s best to book early to avoid disappointment.

    More events for the youngsters come in half-term week.  The multi-talented Jez Bond brings his blend of comedy and magic to the Little Theatre with his Just Mucking About Show, a special spooky Halloween edition on 30th October, and just before that on 28th October the well-qualified Daisy Winchester hosts an all-day Halloween Workshop for 6 to 16 year-olds.  What better place for Drama tuition than in a real theatre?

  • Sheringham cyclist owes life to East Anglian Air Ambulance

    Chris Marshall, aged 49, is a barber from Sheringham and father of two. In May last year Chris was involved in a life-threatening collision with a car near Cromer Golf Club, while he was out training for a 100-mile cycle challenge. When Chris’s wife was first notified about the accident, she was told Chris wasn’t likely to survive. 

    The accident happened around 11:30am on 12 May 2020. A team from the East Anglian Air Ambulance was tasked at 11:39am to provide critical care at the scene, landing on the Cromer Golf Club car park. The EAAA team worked for over an hour to deliver the enhanced pre-hospital care interventions required to give Chris a fighting chance. These included performing a thoracostomy, a procedure to release air to treat a collapsed lung, and anaesthetising Chris to take control of his breathing. 

    Chris had a suspected head injury and had broken several bones in his body. His injuries were classed as life-threatening and without the enhanced interventions of the air ambulance team, he would not have made it to hospital. 

    Fortunately, the team were able to stabilise Chris enough to be moved and he was flown to the major trauma centre at Addenbrooke’s for specialist treatment. Chris’ injuries were extensive and included three bleeds on the brain, several spinal fractures, including some damage to his spinal cord, a fractured pelvis, broken left shoulder blade, hip and ankle and several broken ribs on his right side. He has since suffered double vision, slurred speech and had to learn to walk and talk again. Chris also has nerve damage which still prevents him from fully lifting his arms up. 

  • Fin-tastic! EACH opens 40th shop in Sheringham

    There were great shell-abrations in Sheringham this morning as East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) declared its 40th shop of-fish-ially open.

    Mermaid Merchelle and Pirate Pete from Elite Productions’ A Mermazing Pirate Adventure, the show on at Sheringham Little Theatre this afternoon, cut the ribbon at the Station Road outlet. Customers then made waves as they flooded through the doors, spending £555 in the first hour.

    Naomi Munro, Shop Manager, said: “It was just mermazing scenes here for the ribbon-cutting and I think we’ve done a great job of really sea-zing the day. We couldn’t have fished for much more, that’s for shore.

    “The initial support from customers has been s’whale and we hope it won’t drift away going forward. The porpoise of this shop is to help bring in money for the care of children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the region, and support of their families.”

  • Holt Country Park, Pretty Corner Woods and Sadler’s Woods recognised amongst best UK open spaces

    Sadler’s Wood, near North Walsham, has re-joined Holt Country Park and Pretty Corner Woods in being recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world. 

    Holt Country Park holds its position as a green space for the 14th year running and was joined by Pretty Corner Woods in 2013. Sadler’s Wood first received the accolade in 2012 and despite just missing out last year it has now re-claimed its place thanks to the hard work of our Countryside Team.

    The parks are among a record-breaking 1,970 UK parks and green spaces and 131 in thirteen other countries around the world that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.
