East Devon District Council has announced that the Manor Pavilion has reopened in style with their hugely popular Sidmouth Summer Play Festival.
All current Covid protocols are in place, and this year the season features six irresistible plays across twelve weeks this summer.
Award-winning producer, Paul Taylor Mills, has masterminded a high quality programme of comedy, thrillers and farce, packed with laughs, twists and turns at every moment.
The play season started on July 14 and runs throughout the summer, ending on September 18.
For the season finale, for the very first time, Paul Taylor Mills will be presenting the musical murder mystery CLUE, based on the popular board game. This musical has evolved into a theatre sensation and is now an interactive entertainment for audiences of all ages. Is it going to be Miss Scarlett in the drawing room with the candlestick? The ending is decided by the audience and the musical murder mystery has 216 possible conclusions.
Councillor Nick Hookway, East Devon District Council Portfolio Holder for Culture, Sport, Leisure and Tourism, said: “It's great news to hear that the Manor Pavilion, Sidmouth is reopening with the Summer Play Festival for 2021. The range of performances will surely delight all those who love theatre. I wish all those involved with the productions every success."
