The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 3 November 2011

John Goodfellow joins us from Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre to tell us about the recently-announced spring and summer season, plus he talks about the Truth About Youth project and the theatre's next production, a revival of Jonathan Harvey's first major success Beautiful Thing, which opens next week.

As we enter November, we give a rundown of the vast array Christmas shows you can see over the festive period in both amateur and professional theatre.

We also have a look at the new Manchester Theatre Awards, replacing the Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards that were disbanded earlier this year, and give details of a get-together for anyone interested in entering a play into next year's 24:7 Theatre Festival.
