Manchester Prepares For Busy Theatre Season

By October 16, 2021November 4th, 2021Blog

Theatres around the UK had not been able to open to full capacity for over a year due to coronavirus restrictions, so now social distancing measures have been abandoned in England, Manchester theatres are preparing for a very busy October.

Dirty Dancing had been one of the most anticipated productions in the north-western city this autumn, and it certainly wowed crowds when it opened at the Palace Theatre last week.

Audience members were clearly excited to be back in seats, as Manchester Evening News revealed the theatre was “packed out for the production’s opening night”.

It went on to say everyone who came to see the theatrical remake of the film was “sure to have [had] the time of their life”.

Also showing at the Palace Theatre this month is Heathers The Musical, which enjoyed two seasons in the West End before heading north.

The black comedy rock musical will run until October 9th, followed by Priscilla Queen of The Desert, Grease, and Hairspray.

Manchester’s Opera House will also be busy this month, with performances of Rock of Ages until October 9th.

After this, The Classic Thriller Theatre Company will present The Cat and the Canary, featuring Bond Girl Britt Ekland, Coronation Street’s Tracy Shaw, former pop star Anthony Costa, and other well-known TV actors and actresses.

The resurgence of the theatre scene in the north-west could mean greater opportunities to take to the stage for those having acting classes in Manchester.

Indeed, there are many more productions planned for next year that budding actors and actresses could be part of, from ABBA Mania in January to the stage adaptation of the iconic film Fatal Attraction, set to hit the stage in February 2022.
