We are so excited to welcome Official Number One Bestselling Soprano, Joanna Forest, to The Little Theatre. Joanna, who has performed to millions on the BBC, ITV, Sky and Classic FM at events such as The Royal Variety Performance, is taking her album on a tour of LTG theatres this Autumn.
Described as one of the most exciting and important Sopranos performing today, she made chart history earlier this year when her debut album, Stars Are Rising, entered the Official Classical Charts at Number 1, knocking Alfie Boe off the top, making her the first independent artist to get to number one with a debut. Produced and orchestrated by world renowned pianist, Robert Emery, it was applauded by the National Press, Radio and TV for its eclectic mix of dramatic arias, cinematic classics and crossover versions of popular gems such as Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars’ and Slade’s ‘How Does It Feel?’.
Joanna, who made her West End Debut at just 13, will be performing the album and many other popular classical and musical hits in an evening not to be missed accompanied by a local choir and some surprise familiar faces!

SCAR Productions Presents:
‘September in the rain’ is a gentle lyrical comedy, with what a first glance appears to be an innocent and rather sentimental story: a couple, Jack & Liz look back on there holiday times together in Blackpool. But peel back in the surface and we realise this is a play fuelled by the mining industry and the effect it had on individuals. September holiday week was known as Leger Week in Doncaster and most miners had that week for their holiday. It was ironic that miners trapped underground during their work time ended up having a week’s holiday where it rained upon them for the duration.
Join Jack & Liz in Blackpool on the beach ad up the Tower or on Pleasure Beach for a riotous ride!

Love. Betrayal. Obsession.
A young man, hooded and bound to a chair in a grimy shack.
