Liverpool’s newest theatrical space The Hope Street Theatre will officially reopen its doors October 5.

Thanks to a Cultural Recovery Fund grant, the venue secured its imminent future and enables the work previously started in its opening year to continue.

A varied season of professional and community projects includes a two-week run of The Musical of Musicals The Musical! (November 16–27). It parodies five separate musical theatre composers in five small mini-musicals.

Also helping to launch the new season is a new pantomime for the venue from local producers Just Entertainment. Sleeping Beauty (December 16–30) stars Liverpool Live Radio’s breakfast show host Aaron Hayes as Dame Dolly alongside an ensemble from LIPA and Performers Theatre School.
