Following on from their sell-out performance in 2018, which gained extremely positive feedback from the audience, we absolutely knew we had to have the Wet Mariners back for a second year.
Having been inspired by seeing the first show and the possibilities that the Arches Theatre has to offer, the 'Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy at the Arches' and 'Etc Theatre Company' from Milton Keynes, jumped at the chance of being on our summer bill.
This is what our outdoor theatre is all about: giving theatre groups both new and experienced, amateur and professional, from near and far, the opportunity of performing in a quirky theatre location to a new audience.
There are many fantastic plays that our open-air stage lends itself to. A little Shakespeare always goes down well; a Midsummer Night's Dream or The Tempest perhaps? Or maybe something a little different like The Wind in the Willows or The Importance of Being Earnest?
We're true advocates of children's theatre and getting the younger generation involved and engaged in the arts. So, how about an interactive show for children?
Whatever your thoughts or ideas, why not get in touch and book a venue recce to see how the space can work for you? Or better still, come to one (or all three) of our performances in August to indulge in the experience, see the productions in action and witness the endless production potential.
We already have two fantastic theatre companies interested in putting on a performance for 2020, which we are very excited about. So, watch this space.

Until next time ...
