The seating will be removed and revolved to create a stage in the middle of the stalls, giving the venue more intimacy and enabling the audience to sit on all sides of the action and interact with performers.

The week starts at 8pm on Tuesday 12th July with a one-man tribute to the legendary Stanley Holloway. Cosmethika's Dave Sealey takes on the role of narrator and Holloway himself as he charts Stanley's roller-coaster ride to fame, from his extraordinary success in the legendary Ealing Comedies to My Fair Lady. The great classic monologues and songs will be revisited, and Dave even takes a look at Stanley's 'Bottom', courtesy of W. Shakespeare of course. Tickets cost £10, concs £8.

On Wednesday 13th July at 11.30am, there's a post SATS treat for children aged 5 and up when leading children's theatre companies Tall Stories and Network of Stuff present Them With Tails. Them With Tails will create a world where stories, comedy and a lot of silliness come together in a place where your most ridiculous thoughts can come to life. Three stories from around the world and one created live from audience suggestions means it's never the same show twice! Tickets cost £5, and school parties and group bookers can get a free ticket with every 15 purchased.

There's a first on Thursday 14th July from 7pm. All but the back rows of the stalls will come out for a night of Ceilidh dancing suitable for all ages. Music and calling will be provided by The Woodpecker Band, a popular five-piece Ceilidh band that plays regularly at Oxfolk, Towersey, Sidmouth and Stroud festivals. Tickets cost £5.

The week will culminate in a spectacular Circus Show and Open Fun Day on Saturday 16th July.
Celebrating the glamour, fun and sophistication of the circus, the show (which starts at 2pm and 7pm) will feature clowns, jugglers, and in another first for The Theatre, you can see the beauty and grace of tissue and rope acrobatics as the performers swing from the rafters. Suitable for all the family, tickets for the circus show cost just £5. A family circus skills workshop will take place from 4.30pm-6pm, with tickets costing £5 (suitable for ages 8+).

A range of free activities for all ages will also take place throughout the day from 2pm-6pm, including live music, backstage tours, dressing up and craft activities for children.
