The theatre – owned and managed by East Devon District Council (EDDC) – is the last in the UK to offer a season of repertory productions that change every week from June to September.
Theatregoers can enjoy 12 productions in as many weeks, with classics including The Odd Couple, Ladies in Lavender and Dial M for Murder.
