Winter Season 2017/18 announced

Our Winter season 2017/18 is crammed full of touring dramas, comedies and family friendly shows from some of the best producers in the country, offering entertainment for all tastes and ages.

Martin Kemp, Belinda Lang and Siân Phillips are among the stars appearing in plays and musicals ranging from Million Dollar Quartet to Driving Miss Daisy and the West End hits The Play That Goes Wrong and The Wipers Times.

Rattigan’s masterpiece The Winslow Boy sits alongside modern classics Duet for One and The Weir.

Favourites such as the Christmas Concerts and Moscow City Ballet return, and there’s a wide range of music and performances from a sparkling line-up including Sir Michael Parkinson, Stacey Kent, Omid Djalili and Patricia Routledge.

There’s also plenty of entertainment for families and youngsters, including Chichester Festival Youth Theatre’s Beauty and the Beast for Christmas; a new musical adaptation of The Jungle Book; and an acclaimed production of The Little Matchgirl.

Step back to the hey-day of rock ’n’ roll or the First World War trenches; witness surprising friendships; relive an Edwardian scandal; spend a  spine-tingling night in an Irish pub; chuckle at theatrical mayhem; marvel at jungle adventures or be enchanted by spell-binding fairytales… all at Chichester Festival Theatre this winter.

Meanwhile, the final productions of the Festival 2017 season bring our first ever ‘in-the-round’ production of Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious trio of plays, The Norman Conquests; and James Graham’s much-anticipated new play Quiz.

We look forward to welcoming you all to the Theatre over the coming months.
