On 13 October 2020, The Maddermarket Theatre
announced that it would be closed until at least August 2021.
This was later extended to August 2021.
We are now planning that the next show will take place in May 2022 at the Maddermarket, however, after such a long break we felt that a more popular upbeat production is needed and so we decided that The Pirates of Penzance was more in keeping with our requirements. The exact date is yet to be finalised but if you are in the Norfolk (UK) area and would like to be part of this production, please get in touch.
The Stage Director will be Keith Swetman who, in
between principal roles, last directed The Sorcerer in 2015.
The Musical Director will be Susie Self. Susie is an experienced professional singer, having understudied major roles for the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Glyndebourne and Opera North. In 2002 she sang Katisha in The Mikado for a season at The Savoy Theatre with the D'Oyly Carte Co. Susie has since turned to composition and has had works commissioned from all over the world, as well as being an experienced conductor, studying under David Parry.
We are thrilled to have enlisted this wealth of experience and musical knowledge. Susie is a huge G & S fan and says that she is "really excited" to be the MD for 'Pirates'.
