The Wizard of Oz Pantomime
What's on in 2023
Our Programme this year2023 is set to be a busy year for HTC with five separate productions. Hans Christian Andersen starts off the year in January, followed closely by our talented Youth Theatre Group perfoming John Godber's brilliant school comedy, Teechers in February. March takes us to the The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery. An utterly stupid comedy with an utterly stupid name. In July we are back down to earth with a Shakespearean extravaganza, performed outdoors at the Sussex Prairie Garden - A Midsummer Night's Dream will be a mystical evening of love and mistaken identities set in a wondrous garden setting. Our October play is Jekyll and Hyde an adaptation of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson text by Neil Bartlett. A more serious piece after all of the frivolities earlier in the year! Jekyll and Hyde will be HTC’s entry into the 2023 Brighton and Hove Arts Council Drama Awards scheme, so make sure you obtain a ticket.
We put on a number of shows each year and are proud of our dramatic output

In 2017 and 2018 we were very proud to have been honoured by the Brighton and Hove Arts Council when both of our autumn plays were awarded the best overall production award. In 2019 our production of One Man Two Guvnors won best technical achievement and also the award for most ambitious production. In 2021 our play, The Government Inspector won the Adjudicator's Award for having the ambition to tackle a big classic text and in 2022 our entry, Pressure, won the award for the best technical achievement (again!) and Rebel Atkinson scooped the best actor award.Read More

We can supply a selection of historical costumes as well as outfits and accessories for character parts. There are lots to choose from, we even have the odd dame costume too !
