First produced in 2004, ETO’s hugely successful production of the Britten/Shakespeare masterpiece returns. In a fairy-haunted wood, lovers’ knots are tangled, and strange dreams create monstrous romances.

Only in an hilarious play performed by working men are all the opera’s tensions and enchantments eased. Michael Rosewell conduct’s Britten’s eerie, highly theatrical score, with a cast led by Jonathan Peter Kenny and Andrew Slater.

Rumpelstiltskin is back, bigger, madder and out for revenge!

Miracle Theatre’s festive family show returns this winter with The Revenge of Rumpelstiltskin – starring Tom Adams, Sally Crooks, Ben Dyson and Jason Squibb.

Having been cheated out of his rightful claim to the Queen’s daughter, he returns in this wonderfully original sequel to the classic fairy tale. Will Rumpelstiltskin capture the heart of Princess Tootabell, or will he be thwarted by the Prince of the Golden Halls?

With a scary fairy, a handsome prince who proves he cannot be trusted with scissors, and a fearsome smoke-breathing dragon, Miracle Theatre will transport you to the heyday of Georgian theatre and the birth of pantomime.

According to The Hollywood Reporter casting for The Hobbit movie is due to begin this week in London and LA, and Peter Jackson says they are throwing a large net and casting for every role apart from the one of Gandalf which is already spoken for.
“What we’ve done over the years is discover a lot of interesting actors, like Orlando Bloom (in ‘Rings’), Kate Winslet (in ‘Heavenly Creatures’), Saoirse Ronan (in ‘The Lovely Bones’). So if you start looking and auditioning seriously, it’s amazing what incredible talent you’ll find out there.”
“Apart from Ian McKellen, who we obviously want to return as Gandalf, we are not really offering any roles to anybody until we’ve done a casting sweep,” said Peter Jackson.
