Welcome to the Merlin Theatre
We still have some great shows lined up including our summer school production of Oliver! but we are getting very excited about our new Autumn season which is now on sale. The National Theatre Live shows are always quick to sell so make sure you book up quick. There really is something for everyone; music, children’s shows, film, drama, dance …
Make sure you look out for our new look brochures with the ‘pin me up’ tear off reminder page.
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.
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.
