Welcome to the 78th Season of Frinton Summer Theatre at The McGrigor Hall – the UK’s oldest repertory theatre.

Last year we had a fantastic programme playing to sell-out audiences who welcomed more actors than ever before to Frinton-on Sea. Everyone who comes to work with us seems to be entranced by the magic of the place!As usual – we were bowled over by the enthusiastic support of all those who come to see the shows and equally grateful to the members of The Friends of Frinton Theatre who went beyond the call of duty in their ushering, wine and ice-cream selling – and spectacular cake-baking duties!

We have another cornucopia of delights for you over the Summer. From the menacing thriller “Strangers on a Train”, through the heart-wrenching Rattigan classic “The Deep Blue Sea”; the return of Ayckbourn in “Absurd Person Singular” and our first ever musical by Stephen Sondheim – the delightfully waltz-filled “A Little Night Music”. Plus our usual music and comedy nights. Perhaps most excitingly – Frinton Summer Theatre is now a fully registered charity. We achieved charitable status in order to help sustain the rich heritage that the theatre encapsulates, to continue our mission to give graduating actors and technicians their first jobs and of course, to help raise much needed funds to ensure our continued survival. With the help of our patron Richard Wilson – who will be hosting our gala night – we intend to start a programme of extra fund-raising activities going forward – so please help us wherever you can. I really look forward to welcoming you to our new season.
