It has been a busy time behind the scenes at the theatre and we are very pleased to have now moved to our new ticketing system. Benefits of the news system include the option to book online (via laptop, phone or tablet) at www.emftheatre.com, to choose your own seats and to print your tickets at home if you would like to do so. If you are happy with the existing system, don’t panic! We are always happy to take bookings by phone and in person; the Box Office is open 9.30am-2.30pm Monday – Friday during term time, and one hour before our shows.
We continue to offer high quality live performance in the heart of Tonbridge, and this season’s programme is as exciting and diverse as ever. Highlights for families this summer include delightful, colourful adaptations of much loved children’s books What the Ladybird Heard, and Tiddler and Other Tale. A new play, You’ve Got Dragon is a humorous and touching exploration of the ‘dragons’ we all face, and Me & My Bee, invites you to save the world, one bee at a time!
Drama comes in the form of a dramatic immersive theatre piece Last Resort and John Logan’s Never The Sinner, based on the true story of the murder of a school boy in Chicago 1924. There are NT Live broadcasts of Macbeth and An American in Paris, giving you the opportunity to see these outstanding productions on your doorstep and of course the ever-popular monthly Comedy Night. External exams allow our junior boys to have their chance to shine this season. Our Junior Play this year is Stories in the Dark set in the darkness of a war-ravaged town, and Lower School Concert is always a popular event. Moreover there is also comical clowning, classical music, art exhibitions and outdoor Shakespeare to delight you; there will be something in this packed programme for everyone, so please do read on.
We look forward to welcoming you to the theatre soon.
