If you’re a little blue now that January has rolled around, or are just eager to make plans and fill your diary, we’ve got plenty coming up at the Broadway Cinema and Theatre to help you kick-off 2019 in style.
Magic and modern opera in January
Our ever popular event cinema screenings return in earnest in January. We’ve got the story of Adriana Lecouvreur from the Met Opera, Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades and Verdi’s La Traviata from the Royal Opera House and the National Theatre Live screening of I’m Not Running.
On our theatre stage we’ve got a special treat. Time-travelling magicians, Morgan and West, are performing a double header on 26 January. In the afternoon they’re putting on a special Magic Show for Kids. This show features incredible illusions and jaw-dropping tricks, specifically for youngsters aged 5 and upwards! Once the chaps have recovered, they’re back in the evening for a longer show, with tricks, magic and mystery (mixed with a dash of panache) for a more ‘mature’ audience.
Alongside these great shows, there’s obviously a fantastic line-up of films that we’ll be showing on the big screen.
Bring the fun in February with our improv comedy show and loads more besides!
The Noise Next Door are eight time sell-out veterans of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. They’re bringing the funny to our stage at the end of February. If you appreciate quick-wit, improvised scenes and songs and, above all, a good laugh, this is a show for you.
If you’re after a good sing along, then the Pirates of Penzance is a delightful treat. A combination of sentimental pirates, blundering policemen and absurd adventures combine for an evening to fun!
If real adventure is your thing, our evening with Benedict Allen is your man. Join Benedict as he recounts the details from his recent expedition to Papa New Guinea and re-visiting a community he first met over 30 years ago. Full of tales of the wonderful things he’s seen and done as an explorer, this show will leave you eager to embark on expeditions of your own!
For the young families out there, February sees Animalcolm head our way. This show, from the award-winning Story Pocket Theatre and written by David Baddiel, tells the story of Malcolm, a boy who doesn’t like animals but discovers on a school trip that he understands then more deeply than anyone.
Animalcolm is an entertaining musical, featuring puppetry, physical theatre and outstanding story-telling. Perfect for the February half-term.
We look forward to seeing you!
