Pricilla Queen of the desert
Oct 2021
I went to this theatre to see Pricilla Queen of the desert with 5 other people and we were all blown away with the sheer professionalism of the whole cast. I don’t think that I’ve laughed as much for a long time. The theatre holds 150 people which makes the stage easily seen by the whole audience. An excellent evening.

Theatre in Safe Hands.
Robin Hood Youth Theatre
Feb 2020 • Friends
Wow, what a pure joy it was to watch Trouble in Pantoland, performed by the Robin Hood Youth Theatre it had me smiling and laughing all the way through, the young people took on the lead roles whilst adults took on the miner roles,
every actor was superb even with the odd technical problem, the Cast handled it with true professionalism, I do take into account that this was a youth show so I expected things to go wrong and lines forgotten, but every single person was enjoying being part of this production, it even puts to shame other professional pantomimes I have seen over the years just because of there enthusiasm, from the opening number right through to the finale song the music choices were perfect for the moment within the show and also a giant magical the Goose I still cannot work out who that was must have been so hot,
I must also mention the fabulous costumes worn by the cast and for those who noticed even the barman was in same waistcoat material as the Cast, and the Cast coming Front of House to have photos with the Audience, it's little details that enhance a theatre goers experience.

The Robin Hood Theatre Company should be so proud of their Youth theatre, the future of the Robin Hood Theatre is in safe hands and I look forward to seeing their youth theatres next production.

Amazing from start to finish
Jan 2019 • Couples
From the moment my partner and I arrived you could tell it would be an amazing night from the car parking staff who were most helpful at assisting us to park to the most knowledgeable barmaid, through to the ushers who showed where I seats were in this most beautiful little theatre, the production "bedroom farce" was above our expectations from a amateur theatre company they were so professional well done to the cast and crew, but a huge well done to all you are a credit to the theatre, we look forward to more visits to this quite simply, charming theatre.

Bedroom Farce by Alan Aykbourn
Jan 2019 • Friends
This tiny amateur theatre has been running off and on since 1914. We were in the front row, next to a woman who had performed in one of its reopenings in 1961! Our friend remembered going in the 1970s, dressed up in dinner jackets and posh frocks! It's much more casual now. And the play? Brilliant. We laughed.

Charming theatre, high quality production completely let down by single parking attendant
Sep 2017 • Couples
Just been to see Accidental Death of an Anarchist. It was an excellent production, in a charming theatre in the middle of the countryside. Parking was awkward but they did an excellent job sleeping many cars into a small space. I left the theatre having had a throughly enjoyable evening thinking about how I would recommend it to family and friends. I realised we would have to queue to get out the car park but that wasn't going to put a dampener on things. UNTIL as the car behind me finished reversing out and doing a three point turn I started to do the same. With my windows open so could see clearer and hear instructions from the attendant. However ever all I could hear was him yelling Back Back in a way I could not tell if he wanted me to continue reversing or go back. Eventually I reached him and he yelled at me to open my window and listen to him. I pointed out it was and I was to which he responded "in that case you need to sort your gear box out love" and proceeded to yell instructions on how to do a three point turn in my ear. He clearly thought a middle aged woman was not going to be capable performing this tricky movement. In short he single handedly changed this reveiw from one of unreserved praise of the hard work of a large team to one where I cannot in all honesty recommend to others.

Brief Encounter - lasting memories
Jun 2016 • Friends
The quality of productions at Averham is extremely high and the RHTs latest production - a musical version of Brief Encounter - was no less than an excellent production. Lively and moving in equal measure, it captured it's railway setting in purge the measure- with both trains and lovers steaming. If you've not been to RHT it's well worth a visit to support this amateur venue.

Tiny village theatre that hosts a top class company of actors
May 2016 • Couples
Had passed the sign showing direction to this theatre many times so my wife and I decided to find out what it was like.

We chose their production of "Good old Days" and what a delightful experience it was.
The theatre itself sits at the end of a country lane and holds up to 150 people but it was packed to the rafters and the audience had a whale of a time.
The singing was of the highest quality including a young lady with a Soprano voice that would not be out of place in Convent Garden Other singers both male and female were on top form with wonderful comic timing.
The comedy sketches(written by the cast themselves we were told) were acted to perfection and had the audience in stitches.
The dance sequence of the Can Can was choreographed and performed extremely professionally and even a ventriloquist came of for a cameo appearance and No you couldn't see his lips move!!! The Maestro pianist could really belt it out and an actor playing a banjo and singing George Formby classics was superb
All the old songs were there Bull and Bush. Daisy Daisy, A policeman,s Lot,
A little of what you fancy, Lambeth Walk and many more where audience participation was very much encouraged by a very funny compere and" Simply yourselves" of course
A very nice lounge served a variety of interval drinks and ice creams and several helpers were on hand to help you park the car.
We have been to many West End productions and frankly this was up there with best of them.
The locals of Averham, Newark and Southwell should cherish this company and lovely little theatre because it is an absolute gem

Small, lively theatre in an unlikely spot
Sep 2015 • Couples
Had not been here since it reopened following essential work, which is ongoing.

Went to see 'Abigails Party' and it made me realise how fortunate we are to have this little theatre on our doorstep. Even on the Wednesday night, it was packed. Everybody seemed to enjoy it

They are keen to raise funds for the upkeep of the theatre and you soon find the volunteers doing several jobs each from checking tickets, serving ice cream and drinks at the bar or selling raffle tickets. The tickets were £10 for the show, so most of us were happy to contribute in other ways as well.

It was really good to see such support for the theatre and a coming together of people from all the local villages as well as further afield. If you are planning to be in the area, check it out
