Diary of a Theatre Manager – Episode 1

By Harrison Fuller


I have only been at the Broadway for three short weeks, but they have flown by in a whirl of opening nights, dazzling lights and an ever increasingly busy diary. The aim of this blog is to give you an insight into the theatre and what we are working towards. There will be a new post each week, keeping you updated with the goings on here at The Broadway.

The three weeks have gone by quickly because they have been busy. My first task (on day one) was to find something for Christmas, and I am delighted that this year we are partnering with KD Theatre Productions to bring the traditional family pantomime Aladdin to The Broadway (oh yes we are! – I thought I’d make the joke before someone else).

Casting is currently underway and this Sunday (24th) we will be holding auditions for our chorus. Taking place at the theatre, the auditions will seek to find talent from the local area and provide an opportunity for aspiring performers to be part of a professional show.Read More
