Sidmouth summer play season 2017

Sidmouth’s season of repertory productions launches this evening with the first of 12 plays which will seamlessly change every week from now until September.

Top West End Producer Paul Taylor-Mills is back for his fifth season of producing the Sidmouth summer play season 2017 – 12 iconic plays at Sidmouth’s Manor Pavilion Theatre. Paul has won many accolades for his productions over the years including a trio of Olivier Awards last year for his musical ‘In the Heights’.

The Manor Pavilion is the only theatre in the UK to play host to the weekly professional summer repertory season. 12 plays in 12 weeks is an amazing feat and a real treat for Sidmouth’s theatre goers.
