Milton Keynes Theatre has announced its reopening plans for this summer.
The venue will reopen its doors and welcome back audiences from Sunday 25 July, providing step 4 of the government’s roadmap goes ahead as scheduled.
After being closed for 16 months, the lights will finally come up and the curtain will rise again, as audiences are welcomed back for a sensational season of world class entertainment.
The reopening season will include breathtaking acrobatics from Canadian circus company The 7 Fingers, seat-gripping suspense from Dial M For Murder and the hit musical Waitress arriving fresh from the West End.
The return of live theatre also sees the return of Milton Keynes Theatre’s Price Promise ticket deals. Continuing the theatre’s commitment to making theatre affordable for all, a limited number of tickets will be available for some of the most popular shows for just £13.
Emma Sullivan, Theatre Director of Milton Keynes Theatre said today: “We are over the moon to announce our plans for reopening this July! Our whole team have been touched by the support we’ve received from our community over the past few months. We’ve seen how much live theatre has been missed in the region and can’t wait to give the people of Milton Keynes some much needed entertainment in the safest way possible.”
The first show scheduled to reopen the theatre will be from loveable singer Jane McDonald on Sunday 25 July, with her much anticipated ‘Let The Light In’ tour.
From there it’s a summer of captivating cult hits starting with timeless musical, The Rocky Horror Show, from Monday 2 August.
