GLORIOUS - 2017

The McGrigor Hall has been the principle venue for Frinton Summer Theatre for over seventy years.

It’s owned by the Women’s Institute and the day to day management is undertaken by a committee, currently chaired by Caroline Blackler. 

 

The Friends of Frinton Theatre hire the hall every year on behalf of Frinton Summer Theatre.  For most of its history, Frinton Summer Theatre has staged seven productions over seven weeks during July and August.

 

Generally we open a show in the Hall on Tuesday nights and run it until Saturday night.  Then Sunday is devoted to a frantic set rebuild for the next show.  The Hall gets a bit hot during the Summer and we are currently trying to fund-raise to help install air-conditioning.  All donations gratefully received!!

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF - 2017

In 2018 Clive came up with the idea of putting a tent on the Greensward to provide even more theatrical events over the Summer.

 

We didn’t originally plan to have a circus tent - but at the time - that’s all we could get.  The first show “Fiddler on the Roof” directed by Edward Max, was a great local success and we immediately followed it up the following year with a wonderful production of “Me and My Girl” directed by Ben Stock and a sell-out performance by The Pasadena Roof Orchestra.

We like to think that Frinton has taken the tent to its heart.  Not only does it allow us to put on slightly bigger productions but we hope it widens our appeal to audiences beyond Frinton.
