Top West End stars coming to Stables Theatre at Hastings
A quartet of actors who have performed at London’s West End will be gracing the community run Stables Theatre this summer.
The Stables opened its doors again on Wednesday May 19 a highly successful production of Michael Punters Bunker Girls after rising to the challenges imposed on it by Covid19 regulations.
Chair Neil Sellman says “The dedication shown by the team at the Stables to make the theatre safe and a comfortable experience for all, has been remarkable. The Crew are working with restrictions such a 50% capacity, mask wearing and table service in the bar to make the theatre viable.
“This has enabled the Stables to continue with its planned programme of introducing new artistic projects to the theatre. It is now set to welcome four West End actors to the theatre over the next four weeks.”
