Frinton Summer Theatre Opening

Support us

The beautiful tradition of summer seaside ‘weekly rep’ is alive with professional theatre at local prices for our audiences from Frinton and beyond. It costs around £500,000 to produce our summer season of seven productions. Ticket sales cover only 65% of our costs. Frinton Summer Theatre has been a career springboard for actors such as Vanessa Redgrave, Julian Fellowes, John Osborne, Lynda Bellingham and Owen Teale, and it remains an important seedbed for future talent in British theatre.

Chariots of Fire

by Mike Bartlett

You’ll know the film of course - about the titanic battle between Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams culminating at the Paris Olympics in 1924. It’s no coincidence that we’ve decided to stage Mike Bartlett’s adaptation for the stage as we gear up to Paris 2024. The play was last performed professionally at The Hampstead Theatre in 2012 (to coincide with the British Olympics) and it garnered great reviews before transferring to The West End.

Expect high energy, a brilliant story about endeavour, the music of Vangelis (of course) and almost certainly a rousing rendition of “Jerusalem”.
