Sheffield Theatres Dates

The autumn season at Sheffield Theatres is announced tomorrow and is Top Secret until then (apart from the Full Monty, which has already been in the papers). As a centre stage member I can book from Saturday, although depending on people getting back to me I might wait until later in the weekend.

Once the season is public I’ll amend this post to include the titles, but wanted to get this up so those of you who regularly come along with me can check your diaries beforehand.

I hope I don’t get in hot water for releasing this scant information ;-)
