We’d like you to be our friend.

We’d like to invite anyone with an interest in theatre to become a New Vic Friend and meet lots of other like-minded people, learn more about theatre, and enjoy a varied social programme.

You’ll also be supporting the theatre’s work, helping to spread the word, to raise money and to encourage others to enjoy the work of one of the country’s best and most successful theatres.

Dress Rehearsal

Kiss Me Quickstep
by Amanda Whittington
directed by Theresa Heskins
A world premiere production of a new play commissioned by the New Vic from “our most consistently popular female dramatist”. We follow the highs and lows in the lives of three couples competing in Blackpool’s Ballroom Dancing Championships.

Date:   Thurs 3 March
Time:   7.15pm
To book:  Call Marketing on 01782 717539
Important note:
We regret that, due to ever-increasing demand and limited places, it is becoming more difficult to accommodate everyone who would like to see dress rehearsals. Where places are over-subscribed, it seems fairest to draw names out of a hat (on subsequent occasions, priority will be given to those whose names were not previously drawn).
