  2. 2. 2 WWW.LICHFIELDGARRICK.COM WELCOME WELCOME In 2017 we are celebrating 300 years since the birth of David Garrick, with a programme of work which this celebrated theatre innovator and actor would be proud to produce himself. Our Youth Theatre production is Cymbeline – one of the last of Shakespeare’s plays in which Garrick appeared and, in keeping with our namesake’s innovative spirit, our young players will be performing a new version by Emma Rice. But that’s not all; we have some amazing dramas this season – classic Jane Austen brought to the stage in Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds production of Northanger Abbey, funny and original play, Invincible and back by popular demand, Oddsocks’ comedic take on Romeo and Juliet. Music lovers prepare for a bumper season, whether you’re into 70s and 80s pop stars Elkie Brooks or Barbara Dickson, the Sound of Glenn Miller Era big band, our local theatre companies’ musicals or our new classical strand, including a superb historically performed concert featuring Jane Booth performing Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet and direct from the West End, The Opera Boys. Beat the winter gloom, with our fantastic line-up of comedy; ever popular Comedy 42 brings rising stars of the comedy circuit, whilst we are joined by Jim Davidson for two nights in February and local favourite Sheila McMahon in April. Looking for a family show? How about Don’t Dribble on the Dragon in February, or The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Horrible Histories’ The Best of Barmy Britain in May? We look forward to welcoming you to our house. Karen Foster, Tim Ford and the Lichfield Garrick Team
