New season at the Waterside revealed

A mouth watering feast of show stopping musicals, intriguing drama, and side splitting comedy is unleashed in the Waterside programme for 2013.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert is one of the jewels in the crown which will explode into town in the autumn in a whirl of bejewelled feather boa’s direct from Broadway and the West End.

And a night of fun, frolics and frivolity is promised in the all-new 40th anniversary production of The Rocky Horror Show, bursting at the seams with corsets, suspenders and classics including the pelvic thrusting Time Warp.

General manager Jamie Baskeyfield said: “I am incredibly excited for our spring season. There are plenty of top-class shows on offer; something to suit every taste. I look forward to welcoming people through the doors for what’s set to be a season full of fun, drama, music and all that’s inbetween!”

Other highlights to the calender include an opportunity to scare yourself silly with a terriyfing live theatre experience, Woman in Black, recently popularised by the motion picture version starring Daniel Radcliffe.

The legendary Agatha Christie tale, The Mousetrap, now celebrating its 60th anniversary is on tour and brings murder around every corner to Aylesbury.

Comedy comes with Birds of a Feather, with original cast members Lesley Joseph, Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson reuniting to bring back one of the BBC’s most fondly remebered sitcoms.

The English National Ballet is bringing My First Cinderella, a beautiful adaptation for young audiences. And Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat makes a triumphant return to the Waterside, after being so popular with families in the theatre’s opening season.
