With SS Mendi, a co-production with Isango Ensemble, opening at the Royal Opera House this week and Peter Morgan’s The Audience opening at NST City in May, Director of Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Samuel Hodges, today announces highlights for the new Autumn and Winter Season across its two Southampton theatres; NST City and NST Campus.
Nuffield Southampton Theatres is one of the UK’s leading producing theatre companies. The new season includes the smash hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, produced by New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich in association with Nuffield Southampton Theatres, at NST Campus from 1 October until 12 October, a Nuffield Southampton Theatres co-production with The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Bristol Old Vic, Northern Stage of Tron Theatre Company and Blood of the Young’s Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of) which opens at NST City on 16 March until 28 March 2020 and Nuffield Southampton Theatres new production for Christmas, Cinderella The Musical from the team behind recent hits David Walliams’ Billionaire Boy The Musical and Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox. Cinderella The Musical opens on 29 November, with previews from 23 November and runs until 5 January.
Other highlights include a major revival of the Pulitzer Prize nominated classic Two Trains Running by August Wilson at NST City from 17 to 21 September, the spine chilling thriller Woman in Black at NST Campus from 23 to 28 September, a new musical of the much loved film Amelie starring Strictly Come Dancing’s Danny Mac and Audrey Brisson from the 30 September to 5 October and the critically acclaimed Fuel, National Theatre and Leeds Playhouse production of Barbershop Chronicles by Inua Ellams at NST Campus from 13 to 16 November. For Halloween, families can enjoy The Gruffalo live on stage at NST Campus from 29 October to 3 November.
Sam Hodges, Director at Nuffield Southampton Theatres said today, “ In these uncertain times, this season is all about bringing familiar and entertaining titles to Southampton with our trademark boldness. One Man, Two Guvnors is one of the funniest comedies of the last decade and this is a Pride and Prejudice that will delight both Austen diehards and those looking for something more radical.”
