Welcome to the Merlin Theatre
This exciting season at the Merlin Theatre features a range of performances for all tastes. We’re showcasing brilliant theatre for all ages, fantastic dance, thought provoking films, laugh-out-loud comedy and marvellous music. Not to mention the Christmas pantomime you know and love! The audience can have their say with our “What Did You Think?” performances, celebrate different cultures with our Afro Cuban Sensibility Weekend, and there are several opportunities to celebrate young people in theatre. Come and join us – have a look at our full performance listings and see what you fancy!
The Merlin, in partnership with Tri.art Theatre School offers a wide range of weekly performance based activities including street dance, theatre, dance classes, plus holiday workshops for children and young people ages 6 up. We also give the opportunity for schools and groups to take part in exciting workshops from visiting professional companies and artists.
Frome Film Club, a membership of like-minded film enthusiasts, presents a monthly programme of niche world cinema and quality independent films, with a delicious supper option also available. The season runs from September to July on the second Thursday of the month starting at 8.00 pm.
The Merlin offers a variety of adult workshops from our ever popular weekly ‘Stitch n Bitch’ group, to classes in Ballet, Tap or Dance Yourself Fit with Tri.art Dance Academy. Actor and Director Mark McGann holds Screen and Acting Master classes on a regular basis.
