Current Productions

Regretfully, Hitchin Thespians have decided in the current virus situation to suspend all social activity involving the gathering of people together at Woodside Hall. This means, unfortunately, that we are cancelling our "Inspired Voices" concert (on 27th and 28th March) and our production of "Return to the Forbidden Planet" (21st to 25th April). This is, of course, in line with current government and NHS advice and is to protect our members and patrons as far as possible from infection. It may be possible to re-schedule these events once the health crisis is over and we will do our best to do so and keep you informed of developments. We are sorry to have to make this announcement, but consider it is the responsible thing to do in the circumstances. Thank you for your continued support, stay safe and keep making music, albeit on a restricted basis, to maintain your sanity!

Hitchin Thespians Present:

Inspired Voices

CANCELLED

27th & 28th March 2020 at 7:45pm
Woodside Hall, Hitchin

Tickets £12.00

Inspired Voices - music from the heart.
Join the choir of the Hitchin Thespians, under the baton of John Edwards, as they take you on a musical journey through some of the choral repertoire’s most beautiful and inspiring pieces. The audience will be treated to excerpts from the following: the classical perfection of Haydn’s Creation, the operatic drama of Puccini’s Messa di Gloria and perennial favourite the Cantique de Jean Racine by Faure. Interspersed with the choral items will be the opportunity to hear solos from works as varied as Vivaldi’s Gloria and the exquisite Simple Song from Leonard Bernstein’s Mass. An evening not to be missed!

Woodside Hall, Hitchin

Tickets £15.00

"Shakespeare's forgotten rock 'n' roll masterpiece"
Fasten your seat belts for the wildest ride of the year Hitchin Thespians present Return to the Forbidden Planet, a cult musical comedy with a solid gold rock'n'roll score!
Set in outer space (a first for the Thespians), the script combines a Shakespeare story and verse (another first for Thespians) with a vintage jukebox score of 1950s and 60s classics (yet another first).
Thrill to the sound of Good Vibrations as the spaceship veers out of control! Shiver as the soulful harmonies of It's a Man's Man's Man's World echo around Woodside Hall! Puzzle as to what the heck The Monster Mash is all about!
You won't want to miss this one-of-a-kind show with a live band and a roller skating robot!
