APRIL, MAY AND JUNE at Greenwich Theatre


Drama, comedy, music, dance and one of the world’s most adored children’s classics – there really is something for everyone at Greenwich Theatre between April and June this year


The spring season kicks off with Blackeyed Theatre’s production of The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde, Nick Lane’s adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson universal morality tale that shines a light into the darkest recesses of the human psyche. It runs from 19 to 23 April.


And from the 26th to the 28th you can enjoy Shake The City, Millie Gaston’s inspirational play about the heroic women who went on strike for equal pay in the clothmaking industry in Leeds in 1970.


Scores of youngsters aged six to 18 from the Blackheath-based Pauline Quirke Academy take to the stage on 1 May in Disney’s Aladdin Jr.


Superstition Mountain, a black comedy about three desperate Cornish brothers hunting for gold in Arizona, is in the main auditorium from 5-7 May. And on the 8th, Chris And Sons offer what is described as a “barbering seminar of a lifetime”.


Travelling Light’s enchanting story Vixen, about a girl who is turning into a fox, opens for a two-day run on the 10th.


And dance fans are in for a treat on the 13th when University of East London students bring us Collide 2022 featuring guest choreography by b-girl Emma Houstxn and acclaimed company Uchenna Dance.

May ends on a huge high with Dyad Productions’ version of Virginia Woolf’s game-changing classic A Room Of One’s Own on the 27th and 28th.


From 17 to 19 June, All Aboard Opera is staging Dido, a retelling of 17th century English composer Henry Purcell’s tragic masterpiece Dido And Aeneas. Intriguingly, this 21st century production lets the audience decide the Queen of Carthage’s fate.


And in a wonderful contrast, families can marvel at Judith Kerr’s international phenomenon The Tiger Who Came To Tea on June 25 and 26.
