Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet will be joined from this week by a storytelling giant, struggling zero hours’ workers, inventive Antarctic explorers and a Russian peasant milkman and his daughters, as the Everyman’s resident Rep Company prepares to present all five of its inaugural season of shows multiple times between now and July. There are new dates for the acclaimed Fiddler on the Roof and a chance to see the now familiar Company members shape-shift from one role to the next on a daily basis.
The Rep Season runs from Thursday 8th June to Saturday 1st July allowing return visits to see favourite shows or catch up on ones you’ve missed the first time around. There will be 12 performances of Fiddler on the Roof along with the chance to see The Conquest of the South Pole, The Story Giant and the recent showings of The Sum and Romeo and Juliet.
With the potential for two different shows in the same day at times the skills of the Company will come to the fore as they spin from song and dance numbers to tender children’s stories to the abstraction of an Antarctic white out. Backstage the technical team will be transforming the beautiful sets to transport audiences from 1905 Russia to present day Liverpool via an attic and a crumbling castle.
The chance to see so many different plays over such a short period of time should give the Rep Season a real festival flavour during the light nights. The return of the Rep Company has been pioneering model for regional theatre in 2017 and the new schedule of plays is the last chance to see them in action.
Tickets are priced from £15 to £30 and subscription tickets are still available to see the full Company season at a discounted rate the more you see.
Tickets for the season are available to purchase from the Everyman Theatre’s Box office.
